Those of you whose high risk pregnancy is done, has your stress level gone back down? I am still having a PTSD reaction every time Maggie spits up more than a little, which happens fairly regularly (she is a happy spitter). Really hoping this will end soon...

It's been almost 5 months and I still worry that something's going to happen. I check on her way more often than I ever checked on my other two - even my DS with the VSD (a hole between his chambers in his heart).

Dh thinks I'm nuts, but DD#2 is such a shallow breather, I keep worrying I'm going to find her not breathing.

My stress level has gone way up. I had a pretty uneventful and worry free pregnancy. Once Duncan was here was when the stress really began. Everyone told me that going from one kid to two would be a hard adjustment, but I just had no idea! It has not been an easy transition for me, but things are getting better.

I am so glad I'm not the only one...I mean, I'm not glad that it's hard for you guys too, but I'm glad I'm not crazy for feeling this way.

Liz, it is definitely an adjustment having two instead of one! Luckily my oldest is mostly cool about it, but anytime both DH and I are paying attention to Maggie, he turns on the negative behavior. We have to try really hard to remember that only one of us can be paying attention to Maggie at a time if Jim is present. Also, we discovered this weekend that eating out with them anyplace that isn't 100% family-friendly (i.e., with crayons for the kids) is just not worth the effort. It's babysitters from here on out...

Beth- We try to avoid eating out with Stella! She just will not sit nicely and eat a meal in a resturant.
