Caleb is keeping me very busy! I've been trying to visit this forum as much as possible even though it's not that active yet just to keep reminding myself that there's another human being growing inside of me. When I was pregnant with Caleb, it was the one and only thing constantly on my mind. I feel bad that I barely get to give this pregnancy 5 minutes thought throughout the day. The only time I get to think about it is when Caleb falls asleep---and even then I'm usually too exhausted to be up for too long. I keep "forgetting" that I'm pregnant. That never happened with Caleb! It's so different this time around being a BTDT mom! I can't wait until I have a belly and can feel Baby #2 moving around. Then I'll start to feel more connected.

I feel the same way! I usually remember when I am choosing something to eat or drink and remember that I shouldn't have caffeine or lunch meat! Although, I am starting to feel exhausted and a little queasy, so that is a reminder!

I am thinking that you are right and when we feel these little beans move we will be more connected. I think it is okay to stay focused on Caleb - especially since in 8 short months we are going to have to divide our attention between the babies we have now and our newborns!

That's so true! I have been giving Caleb even more attention than usual because I want him to know just how much I freaking love him! But at the same time I feel like a part of Caleb is who he is because of how much I sent my love to him while he was in the womb. I know that there's probably no science to back that up, but I feel like this baby will "know" that I didn't get to focus on him/her as much, and that they might come out more cranky, etc. It's silly, I know, but I feel guilty.

That's the one thing that I'm looking forward to, Nicole! I'm hoping that with all these distractions I won't feel like the weeks are dragging by like I did with Caleb.

I've found that when you have a young child, it makes the pregnancy go by VERY very fast. When I got pregnant with #6 my daughter was only 9 months old and watching her grow and learn new things made time fly. Then when that baby was 13 mos I got pregnant with my youngest, that pregnancy flew by too. Now my youngest is 12 months. I plan to take some time each day to really enjoy and focus on this pregnancy. I Love being pregnant and this is my last time so I want to savor every minute of it.
