What I Would Tell Myself Now

I just found this video via another baby blog I follow.  Grab the Kleenex!!

We asked moms if they could go back to before their first baby, what would they tell themselves. These are their answers. Everyone in the video is a mom :)

Wow, so many of those are RIGHT ON!!  A few of my favorites are:
"Nobody really knows what they're doing" (1:40),
"Google doesn't have children" (1:45), and
"You are about to meet true love" (2:06).

What would I go back and tell myself, just days before giving birth?!?
  • You will figure it out, don't worry.
  • You were made for this.
  • It's so worth it!
  • Your boobs won't go back to normal.
  • You will be prouder than you could ever imagine.
  • You will learn the balancing act quite well.
  • You can do this, you will do this, and you will be great.
  • You're going to surprise yourself.
  • Everyone keeps telling you that "your world is going to change forever". This scares you now.  You love the little world you're living in and you don't want it to change.  But they are right: everything is about to change.  And you will LOVE your new "changed" life.

So other Mommas out there, what would you go back and tell yourself?
