What are you most nervous about after having baby?
I'm nervous about nursing, why? Because I just hope he latches on and catches on quickly! It took a little while for Noah to latch on right. I'm also nervous about having a light sleeper and a crying baby. I hope Noah doesn't wake up every time Lucas cries. We will see how that goes!!
For me it's making sure all bills are getting paid on time.. Daycare is SOOOO dang expensive and I'm scared something's going to happen and we'll get stuck being late on something. lol..
I'm worried about Daycare. I don't think we can afford an actual "daycare" so we need to find someone. I have a really good friend who does in home daycare anyway, but she lives soooo far out, it's not really on DH's way to work. He wants to use his future sister in law, but... she's not dependable, and she seems like the type that if she doesn't "feel" like watching baby girl, she won't. My neighbor does in home day care, but I'm not a big fan of my neighbor. So I guess we'll see. I am NOT going to find someone online to come in with my newborn.
This exactly. I looked at the place DD went to (10 years ago) and they want almost 300 per week. There's no way.. I'm looking at another place that was voted one of the best for the past 3 years.. it's "only" 200 per week.
Nursing is one thing - I had a low supply with both babies and had to supplement/go on a drug to help. I'm doing something different this time around so hopefully it works!
Another thing is juggling three kids out of the house. My son will be in 1/2 day K5 in the fall, but until then I will be going out and doing things with all three of them and that terrifies me!
I'm so blessed to have my mother watching Lucas. So far I've had family watching him and even if I have had to pay, it's nothing compared to $200 weekly.. YIKES but I know they charge a lot more for a newborn. I hope you ladies find something soon and hopefully some kind of good deal.
Vicki, that would be a little nerve wracking for me.. especially when my son has those bad fits.. we may have to wait to go out just the 3 of us HAHA.
I'm nervous about being outnumbered! 3 kids and 2 adults... gulp.
Also nervous about the first couple of weeks recovery - remembering how horribly uncomfortable peeing was, let along anything else! Maybe I'll be lucky and not have an episiotomy this time... a girl can dream
Being sleep deprived! I have a really hard time functioning when I don't get enough sleep and both my boys never slept more then 2 hours at a time the first year so I am not expecting this one too. It's going to be hard to balance 3 kids on no sleep! I'm going to invest in a good coffee maker this time!
