It is suddenly hitting me....


.... That in a month or so I will be a mother. I'm so excited and also really scared. I hope I can do this sober. I'm going to have a really full plate as far as baby, fiancée, employee, student and sober member of AA. I was never good at balancing my schedule. I try to do it all perfectly and get easily overwhelmed when I find that I simply can't achieve the level of perfection I strive for in a realistic manner. I am trying to stay positive. Can't wait to meet my precious son. I know I will love him and do whatever it takes to do right by him. He deserves a sober mom... My prayers are mostly for him. I just don't want to be like my parents were in terms of drinking and drugs constantly around the house and running our lives. It can be done. I guess I will just keep doing my best and try to accept my limits. Thank you everyone for being there for me during this pregnancy. It was hard too. I'm almost there.

It's been so exciting to be with you on your recovery journey and through your pregnancy. I feel very confident you will continue to be a loving sober parent. You have already demonstrated so much love to your son.
