I hope you have a good time of it. Yes, it’s different for everyone. My experience was that it was MUCH harder than I had ever expected. I write about that in Nobody Warned Me About Having Kids (and I quote All Joy and No Fun in that piece).

Highs and lows for sure. I’m not sure if you just wrote this (or if you’ve got a baby by now), but this piece was really helpful for me at the end of pregnancy. Again, everyone’s different, but I love to share it with people at the unique time.
