I guess I'm having a bit of a hormonal day/night.
Tonight I was sitting on the couch, DS was snuggled in under my arm watching one of his shows and I was enjoying our quiet time so much! I've been stressed and things have been hectic around here, so it was nice for some down time snuggling with him.
Anyway, it got me sentimental and a bit teary thinking about how this will all change and it'll no longer just be the 3 of us (he is the center of our world) and I dont know how I'll handle the change/adjustment, never mind how HE will handle it! And then I feel bad/guilty about it. Which is funny, because I've always wanted a bigger family (hopefully a 3rd child in the future if all goes well) and as much as I really want this and am excited for another baby I'm also sad about changing DS's little world.
Its also a bit foreign to me since I'm an only child, so I dont even know what its like to be in a "more than 1 kid" family, never mind knowing how to parent one!!!
For the Moms expecting #3 or more - how do you do it?! I know I'll figure it out and everything will be fine, but how do you deal with all the emotions? I know I'll love this new LO, and I know I'll still love DS, but right now I'm so unsure as to HOW. lol... I guess its kinda like not being able to imagine life without kids?!
For moms expecting #2 - do you feel the same?!
And for those FTMs who are feeling unsure about having a new baby around, don't worry, it doesnt get any easier the 2nd time around!!! You're not alone.
Edit - after thought...
As the time gets closer to having this baby, I'm getting more hormonal. Ack. How Will I survive the next 8 days? lol ... Oh speaking of, we painted the first coat of the nursery today. My advice for future, dont leave the nursery to the last 8 days before baby comes. Its stressful. LOL
