It feels SO different being pregnant 2nd time around ....
I know it must sound so strange but the first time you're pregnant you only have yourself and bump to think about. You can rest and pamper yourself. When you feel rubbish you can take yourself to bed.
This second pregnancy is going by ( very quickly which is a benefit ) and I'm so busy with my 8.5 month old daughter. But I'm exhausted. I do pretty much everything as hubby works loads. I'm back at work part time since last week.
But I feel like I can't give this bump any real attention. I can't believe there's a baby busy growing in there. I can't believe I'll have a new baby in my arms in September. And I know that as a wOman Instinct will kick in but it's really daunting that I'll have two babies to care for mostly on my own. Eek
Can't wait for my family to be compleat. This baby was very much planned and I know how lucky I am. I'm just not loving this pregnancy.
I can sympathise hun. I am back to work full time, caring for my 11 month old and I feel exhausted! But like you I know I am very lucky to be having another little one. I suppose the first time you are so in tune to the miracle of baby growing but when you don't have the time to bump watch it really highlights baby really does take care of him/herself! I am nervous about having two under 2 but you cope with your situation because you have to and I am sure you will be fine!
Thanks lovely. My baby girl has been sick this week and it just highlighted to me how hard it could be when there's also a newborn. When I first had her I wondered how you'd ever give your second as much attention as your first.
I have a 16 month old and this time is SO much harder because of it. When I'm sick, she stands next to me and says "No mama " and pats me. she is a really good girl, but still, last time I was able to go lay down and sleep the rest of the day when I was sick.
Although I'm extremely prepared this time and I know what to look for. I'm not worried all the time wondering what this or that is...
I feel so sick and just awful today. Floored with tiredness and dizziness. I feel like I need to be in bed sleeping all day. Luckily my baby feels loads better today and playing with her toys. Just getting on with mininum housework as I'm not up to it. I usually walk every day but no chance of me going anywhere. Sorry I'm moaning. Not usually what I'm like
