Question of the Week | February 4th

What do you say to women on the brink of motherhood? 

Remember the feelings you had right before your first child arrived?  It was likely a huge mix of things, and somewhere in there was a bit of fear.  So many unknowns! 

In the weeks and months that follow that crazy cocktail of emotions, you find yourself gaining wisdom, experience, and understanding.  Learning all kinds of things that let you share a look or a comment with another mom, and finding complete agreement.  Some of those things are invaluable, and would be great things to share with the newest moms you know.   The things you wish you’d been told, but perhaps no one ever thought to mention. 

Please share your wisdom and insights with us here, and give a heads-up to the moms who are just getting started!

PRIZE: This week’s prize is bag of Valentine goodies, just for you but you can share if you wish :). 

DEADLINE: Sunday the 10th of February at midnight EST.

Please remember, we need at least 5 answers for there to be a prize drawing, and if you won the previous week you’re not eligible, but go ahead and answer anyway!
