While I would not want to go back and change this little boy I am so excited to meet... I completly understand. While I am still mairred to DD's father, she is 9 and very self sufficient. She can get a snack, shower, get dressed, clean her room... read a book when I don't feel well. Now with my new LO, I am realizing that a lot of that feedom will be gone (for a while). However, I remind myself that it will be replaced with baby smiles, kisses and cuddles. The excitement of all the firsts and watching him grow. So, that makes it worth it to me.
Try making a plan to know when you will have 'me' time. Maybe that will help reduce some of your anxiety if you know that you are going to have time for yourself still.
