Apprehension

To say I've been apprehensive this pregnancy is an understatement. Things are rocky in my marriage, and we weren't even sure we wanted a second.

After a great vacation with my dd, I really started to realize what a great girl she's becoming (I already knew but it really hit me) and now, FINALLY I get how wonderful having two little girls is going to be! I was so hung up on getting through the baby stage that I hadn't even thought of them growing up and what a wonderful addition thus is going to be to all our lives!

I can't wait!!

I'm so glad you're feeling less apprehensive! Isn't it wonderful to see our babies grow up in to darling little people of their own?

Today is not a good day for me. Both my kids were TERRIBLE at our appts this morning (dentist and oil change) so I am really freaking out about having 3 now!!! I think I stole your apprehension Biggrin

My apprehension is extremely high. Having 2 kids so close together was never in my plans, and now with less then three months to go I am getting more and more nervous. Every time Kay turns another month in the back of my head I am not seeing her get older but a count down to when the new baby comes and it is freaking me out.

I'm just not sure how I am going to do it all. Especially with Kay probably not going to be walking.

I am glad that you are enjoying your DD and are looking forward to having 2 of them! Having girls that you can "hang out" with is fun! My daughters and I often have "spa" days where we do each others nails and rub lotion in our legs. We also enjoy romantic comedies together- it is so fun!

I can't wait to hold a newborn again and to breastfeed ( once my nipples get used to it).

I've been feeling anxious lately and I keep reminding myself it's normal. Mostly it's over sleep. Maybe that makes me some sort of wimp but Evan is SO good. 730-8 he goes to bed, 7ish he gets up, 12-2/3 he takes a nap. It's easy, he never fights it, I get "me" time in the evening and a little in the afternoon. I know it will all go to hell in a hand basket once baby boy 2 arrives, he'll be up late nursing, wake up at night etc etc I know it's all SO worth it but I get myself worried thinking about managing both kiddos and work. With Evan if he slept odd hours I just took a nap or slept in, that won't be possible this time! Evan will be up and expect my attention....

I feel it too. I lost three weeks of my pregnancy today cause i'm farther along than we thought. I feel like there is not enough time to get things done! I couldn't imagine having two! Good luck ladies and feel better Smile

I'm so glad that you're feeling better about this baby! I too was have been very apprehensive with this whole pregnancy. This baby was a complete surprise, and will be my fourth so I'm really wondering how I'll handle that as well. Then to find out that this baby is another boy (I already have two sons and DH has two sons from a previous marriage as well)... I felt that if I was having a fourth it would make it a little better if I got another girl. In the last month or so I've been feeling a lot better about it, more excited... I think because he's getting bigger and I can see him moving through my tummy, and getting his nursery prepared, I'm coming around more on the idea of having a fourth!

I have had moments of that too. Sometimes when ds is being a complete toddler, I think "wth was I thinking???" but then he points at my belly and says "beebee" and grabs it and kisses it, I feel better.

I hope that things in your marriage settle down, its hard when a new life comes in, especially one that wasn't planned, but she will be a bundle of joy.

I am glad that you are feeling better about the PG. How are things going in your marriage...you have not mentioned much.

I keep waiting to get nervous or something but nothing. I have been so calm...which is weird for me Smile

Our marriage is stagnant. I have a roomate not a husband. I'm coming to terms with it. I don't think well tough it out in the long run but he's not doing anything destructive other than refusing his pills again so he's very moody. He doesn't go out as much and has cut out beer so that's good. He also still hasn't gotten a job and unemployment is running out. There is lots of work he's just not looking. I just don't have the energy to fight it right now. Maybe next year.
