Number Two (baby that is!)


We're just decided to TTC in July this year instead of next year. Which is great!!! But i'm worried. I'm worried about LO. He's my world and I love him so so much. But i'm worried about the effects it will have on him. I'm worried cos he'll be jealous and I won't be able to spend as much time with him. I'm worried i'm about to bring his little world crashing down around him. I told OH and he think's im being silly. I really really want another baby but at the same time i'm worried to death that i'll regret it x

I think everything will be fine. Once the new baby is here, just try to set aside time each day for your LO so he knows that you aren't dropping him from your life and let him know that you love him just as much as you ever did.

Good luck ttc. x

^wss^ also how old is he? he is old enough to understand it all? maybe if he is sit him down and ask him if he would like someone to play with or to be a big brother, i think most kids would be thrilled and excited x

I have no advice but I feel the same. Also, I worry I can not love another anywhere near as much as my son and that maybe I will not feel the same about a second. I feel a bit crazy about it all but I just love DS so much.

I think it's totally natural to feel the way you do. Everyone I know says they went through those exact same emotions when deciding to ttc number 2.

We will be ttc our second in May and I have mixed thoughts all the time. I worry that Summer will feel left out and miss out on exclusive time with me etc, I also worried about how I could ever spare any love for another baby but I know that I dont need to give away any of her love as I'll have a whole new lot of love to give.

I also know that she adores being around other babies and children and her face lights up when she gets to play with others so I know she'll love being able to grow up close to a sibling.

When the new baby is still very young I plan on setting aside mummy and Summer time so she'll never feel left out.

It shows that you're such a loving mum to worry so much about your current lo.
