This is so true & in fact I also have those guilty feelings that my Sons arent closer in age

I think we will feel guilty no matter what, hey!

Yeah I do feel kinda guilty too, but, this way he'll have a little friend he can be close to through his whole life! And he'll be young enough to not really ever remember life without baby no.2 x

I speak from experience! My boys, now 7 & 6 were born 16 months apart. Yes, you will be exhausted, yes you will spend what feels like a lifetime surrounded by nappies and bottles BUT, they are now so close! It really is true, they will be friends for life. Sure, they have the odd spat now and again & drive me nuts; but after having the same thoughts about whether the oldest was losing out on infancy and would resent the youngest, I can honestly say it all works out! Eldest refused to address the youngest as anything other than 'baby' for the first 3 months, lol. I even started an undergraduate degree when youngest was 10 weeks so I had mixed emotions about that too, but now having been through it all, it really does work out like people say - so hang in there! Incidentally, neither of them know yet about their impending sibling, but again, at least they have each other to go through it all with

Hello ~ Bless your Daughter in your avatar ~ adorable

The tiredness is so hard isnt it I find myself yawning all day! & am always going to bed early ~ Knowing I will be up at 5am (luckily she usually has a small bottle & then goes back to sleep until about 7-7.30am)

In fact, im that worn out, im off to bed soon!

I feel guilty for DH ~ As im always leaving him sat on his own, whilst I go off to bed!
