ajarvis- Same Here! Well, my youngest is 7 and I really thought I was done.. Then life happened and here I am expecting another... I am more laid back this time about being in a rush to get things done, but I definitely feel like I have to read up on everything again. You would think with the amount of times I've done this I would feel more confident, but nope.. not the case lol

Hello ladies! I'm due with my 2nd girl Oct 4th. It has been 7 yrs since I went through all of this. Not by choice as it took us 2.5 yrs to conceive. I feel lost all over again at times, yet I am pretty relaxed. I am going to try for a natural labor this time around fxd. We have the nursery just about done and luckily we kept a most of my dd's clothes just in case. The only problem is that she was born in June so we had to buy some clothes.

I haven't bought anything lol. If it's a boy we are all set for clothes. If it's a girl, I have plenty of neutral stuff to get us started. I'm not doing a nursery because I dont see the point in our case, when I move baby to another room, it will likely share a room with its brother so we will just rearrange. Only thing im stressing this time, is im paying more attention to movement because of my first tri mmc last time, and an anterior placenta this time.

faithy and smille I definitely feel more relaxed pregnancy wise. Just not stuff wise ha. We have most of the important stuff now though. Just gotta clean up the nursery. So that helps. I'm sure I'll be missing little stuff I didn't think of. But what can ya do

My only worry is going into labor while dh is at work. It'll take him 20 min to get home and another 20 min to get me to the hospital. I was induced the last time and delivered 4hrs after they broke my water. I'm sure it'll all work out...hopefully.

There's a 7 year age gap between my youngest (2 y/o) and next oldest...interesting dynamic, it is nice to have so much help with the baby

I have almost everything for this little guy, there is just a couple things I know I'll need.
I probably would be more relaxed this time & forget all about being pregnant - I certainly have in the past lol - but with all the dr visits, the bed rest & stuff, it's just about all I can think of....hoping & praying he stays put until at least 34 weeks, preferably 36.

So exciting - I just ordered all the newborn sized clothing he'll need (it says up to 11 pounds), since he's coming early I expect him to be less than 7 pounds, so it should work well for awhile. I also went through the baby clothes I have & got the neutral things (all bigger sizes), so when my package arrives I'll start washing it all. If he's super tiny, I guess my husband will have to grab a few preemie outfits while we're still in the hospital (fingers crossed that doesn't happen!)

After I get the bigger kids in school (4 & a half weeks), my mom & I will get down the boxes of baby gear to wash, set up & organize. It'll be like a baby shower haha, I have so much stuff.
