I am 25 years old and have a 16 month old son. I have been married for over a year and just found out yesterday that I am pregenant again. Now ... I would be excited becuase I love my son more than anything and do want another child ... but the fact is that since my son has been here I have pretty much done everything on my own. My husband is very excited again that I am pregnant, except I am scared out of my mind becuase I'm afraid I am going to have to do it all on my own.
During my last pregnancy my husband was helpful and caring, and when the baby came, it was like ok ... your on your own. I work 40 hours a week ... and take care of my son, while my husband just now got a new job and was spending his time coaching football (for free). I would just like some advice or at least some comforting words, becuase I am terrified of having this second baby!

sorry that you are feeling so down. i'm sure that you've told you husband how you feel. but it's his family too and he should be helping you. i would be scared too if i was in your situation. i'm only on my 1st so we are going to have to see how things go.
i hope that things get better for you and that you start to feel better. here's a big ((((( HUG))))) just for you.

i'm 28 weeks, i'm due july 27th. it feels like there is so much let to do and time is going by too fast for me to keep up. i was a little surprised when i found out that i was pregnant and there are times when i'm not sure if my boyfriend is going to want to stick around when the baby gets here but i'm prepared to deal with whatever comes. i guess it's a little different when you are married but he should really be helping you. i mean it's ok to have one day to go out and do your own thing but at really if you work also he should be pulling his share of the load too.

Congratulations on the pregnancy. You should talk to your husband and tell him that you are feeling overwhelmed w/ everything. Maybe it will open his eyes and help him to put his family first.

Well, I've never been in your situation, because this is my first. I'm scared of having to do everything on my own because my boyfriend/SO is really nervous about having a baby. He likes when the kid can talk and walk. I like em when they can't. But I still know that having a baby is going to be a lot of work and I am also scared of having to do it on my own as well. So I kinda know how you feel. Just remember, you have one up on me. You already got through it once!!! I would definitely talk to your husband and let him know how you feel, but I'm sure that no matter what happens with him, you will make it through!! You seem like a strong person to have already done it once! Plus, somebody's gotta do it, huh?

Well, good luck, and congrats on the pregnancy!
