I just turned 28 and I am feeling some pressure to have a baby. I am overwhelmed by this thought. I guess I just need some reassurance from the parents out there. I will continue to work after I have a baby, with 3 months off. I very afraid I will be a sleep-deprived mess for a year... and depressed too. I am trying to tell myself that it will be a joy in my marriage but now I am just dreading it. I am so scared about this. How do people get over this? I pray but I guess I am feeling anxious lately so I am dwelling on this. Any advice please?
