I don't know if it is nerves or excitment but I can't believe I am preparing to be induced in just a few days. I am scrambling spending as much fun mother daughter activities and time that I can possibly handle with DD, I kinda worry that I won't be able to time manage and we won't get that bonding time anymore. I don't want to leave her for a second. I worry that she is going to have a hard time going from an only child for almost 5 years to needing to split time.

How is the transition going for those that have had thier babies? Any advice or tips?

I am in the same situation here. DD is 4 1/2 and I have been spending tons of time with her since my maternity leave started 2 weeks ago. Last night I went to see a movie with my sis (the only time I have been away from her since my leave started) and DH said she cried and cried while I was gone. I felt so bad but I now am worried about being in the hospital next week..she couldn't even handle me going to see a movie. Poor kid.

My plan is to involve DD as much as possible and make sure I spend 1 on 1 time with her when I can. If DH has baby then I want to spend my time with DD.

It was hard on my 2 year old when Emma was first born. He didn't like me not being here to put him to bed and get him going in the morning. That first week was very tough for him with me being at the NICU! Since we're home it's been much better...although he doesn't want me out of his sight. My oldest was fine when we went from just being him to adding Jake. We have more problems now (before Emma) with jealousy between the boys... mostly my oldest... he was the only child for 7 years...

Everyone says how lucky I am and how smart it was to wait to have another since DD will be there to help me out when DF goes back to work, but honestly I think it would have been easier not to have the help and to her not have had me to herself this long. I really hope it is an easy transition and I am just getting butterflies about it.
