Name: Karissa


Where are you from: Southern California


Expected Due Date: Well by my LMP (which I'm pretty sure will be wrong) it's June 13,2013


Child #: 1


What are you most excited about?: The first time I get to feel my baby kick and hold her/him


What are you most nervous about?: Probably loosing sleep, but that seems to be happening already.


Do you work or stay at home: Work as a L&D RN


If you have children what's your best advice for us first timers!: No kids yet but from seeing so many new mommies I think the best thing I could tell anyone is to sleep whenever you can. The first couple of days after delivery you will be in awe and just want to stare at and hold your baby but your body also needs to recover. So whenever the baby sleeps, you sleep.
