Is this a phase? Am I going crazy?

It's totally normal to think twice (or multiples times) about having made a baby and whether or not it was a good idea, it's a HUGE thing.... but I don't know anyone who says that they regret one of their kids

Most of my friends have been through it, right near the end of the first tri, the emotions are INTENSE. I cried today because they didn't have soup at the cafe I stopped into specifically to get a specific broccoli cheddar soup. I mean, if I can cry over that and have it be normal, you can totally have doubts and issues and tears.
We need to have a new normal, there's normal, and then there's pregnancy normal, and they often bear no resemblance to each other.
So what I'm saying is it's so very common to feel the ups and downs and "what did I do's!?!?!?!?"
FTMPapa....you are so right....there is normal..and there is pregnancy normal...
It's so overwhelming and emotional. It was one thing to be crying over sappy commercials but to suddenly realise that after 11 years it wouldn't just be me and my husband I lost it and have been losing it about twice a day since! Fun!
Shellbell- What flower essences are you taking?
KristaDJ- OMG too funny about Star Wars! (although you never know there could be another one!)
So, I'm glad you asked your question. I don't feel so alone in this now.

Yeah. The very next night, the doubts and anxiety hit hard and my poor partner had to hold me while I cried about how hard this was and how if I'd known it was going to be like this I would never have done it and how I was so scared that I was changing our lives forever and being utterly stupid and selfish for ever thinking I could handle this kind of repsonsibility and... yeah.
