What to expect after you're expecting.

You don’t have to be pregnant to wonder what type of mom you'll be, it’s something that we may think about throughout the early parts of our lives. When you were little you might have had a baby doll to play with and imagined was your actual child, but when you got too old for dolls you might have thought more about finding the right person and getting married.

Once you got older and your inner clock started ticking louder and louder, you probably gave a lot more thought to whether you wanted to have children and what kind of mother you’d be.


If you had a great role model in your own mother, you probably wanted to be like her, maybe even better than her. But if you weren’t lucky enough to have a fantastic mother, you most likely wanted to do things differently than she did.

There are all kinds of mothers out there — some are blood but others are by heart. You might have had a woman in your life — a relative, friend, or even a babysitter who nurtured and took care of you — and that’s the woman you most want to emulate.

Some people have a mothering instinct and they care for others in a loving way, whether they’re related to them or not. However, there are some women who may not feel that strong motherly emotion until they’ve delivered their child. You never know when you’ll start to really feel like a mother.



Sometimes we worry that we won’t be a good parent, that we’re too irresponsible or immature, and other times we’re cocky — we’ve read all the books, we know it all. However, motherhood is a life-long learning process and just when we think we’ve got it down, someone serves us a curve ball and we need to improvise.

Here’s the type of mom you'll be, based on your zodiac sign.
