Those two little lines appear on the pregnancy test and you jump for joy with your partner. The doctor confirms, and when the time is right, you inform loved ones and commence meticulous planning. Researching the safest cribs and shopping for tiny, printed onesies and all things adorable, begins. Next comes choosing a name and determining your birth plan. Then you begin reading parenting books and deciding what type of child rearing techniques you’ll apply. At this point, it seems you’ve got it all figured out and the blueprint of your happy little family seems to be superbly falling into place.
