I'm so not ready. For so many reasons. I hoped to have a slightly larger house and a better car and lose more weight. I've lost a lot, but still not at my pre-pregnancy weight, which could hurt my chances of a successful VBAC. I prayed and prayed and prayed to have a baby after I miscarried, but now that I have a very clingy 18 month old, I'm not sure I'm ready to have another baby since she is still kind of a baby herself. At the very least, I wanted her weaned and potty trained, and obviously she is neither. I'm not ready so much that when I saw that positive, I just kind of went into mental break down. DH is thrilled, but I'm just not that excited yet.. I'm nervous thinking about what it's going to take to get her here. I had a csection with Lily and have a surgery phobia thanks to some medical stuff I went through when I was very small. Thinking about doing that again made me really nervous and that was before I got pregnant. I really hope I can do a vbac. Everyone else around me who knows is super excited for me and I have to put on a happy face for them inside I'm just kind of "What the heck am I going to do?" Moms with more than 1, how do you do it?? I know it's never possible to feel completely ready for a baby, but right now, I'm just scared.

Right now, with an 18 month old and a 2 month old, I go non stop. Its not a bad nonstop though. Mia is high needs, and Henry is a cuddle blob. Sometimes I want to run away screaming and other times, I'm having the time of my life. Its still pretty chaotic, but its getting better. I never intended on getting pregnant, and spent my pregnancy alternating between being happy and not wanting to be pregnant.

Its a big adjustment, but the best

Thanks Cate.. I am still nervous, but I'm feeling a little better. I do already alternate between feeling ready and not feeling ready.

Congratulations! Mine is coming soon and I still feel that way. I'm not a big fan of this age difference but it seems to be the time my body likes to get pregnant LOL

You still have many months to adapt to it so don't worry about how you feel now.

Also keep in mind that she will be 2 when baby comes which for many is ideal. Every day that Mia has more words is an easier day.

Hi!! I know I haven't been on here in forever, but congrats! We're going to be actively trying later this month, and I already alternate between feeling ready and thinking how in the world am I going to do that?!

But on the plus side, just think how close Lily and her sibling will be. That's what makes me want one more than anything, I want Carter to have someone to play with. Also, she will be what 7 months older than she is now when the new baby arrives? Think how much they grow, learn, and change in 7 months! I feel like no age difference is going to be easy, so I may as well do it now!

În the weeks since I posted this, I'm getting used to the news. I'm still nervous, but I guess I'd be nervous no matter when lol. Sometimes I feel excited and sometimes I wonder how I'm going to deal with this, but that's life. Lily is changing so fast. Every day, she learns something new. I told her she has a sibling on the way, but I don't think she quite gets it lol. She will eventually. I am hoping her and this baby have a close bond. I didnt start getting close to my siblings because of our age differences until after I moved out and now we're best friends.

It will get easier, I promise! When I found out I was pregnant with my third I was terrified because I had pretty bad anxiety. I truly believe God gave me my baby to take that away because I haven't had a single problem with it since! I am now pregnant with #5 and while we weren't planning on him/her we know that every child is a blessing. Hubby and I don't get many date nights because I breastfeed and our kids are super clingy so we were trying to not get pregnant so we could celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary in March. I'm due in January so that's out the window. BUT, my kids are incredibly close and they LOVE having so many siblings. All my babies are about 2 years apart. Lily and this baby are going to be the closest but she's weaning and sleeping through the night WAY sooner than my others plus she's potty trained so I'm not too worried.

My Lily still nurses for comfort at night and in the morning. It's still the best way to calm her down if she is super scared or in pain from something. I'm hoping I can tandem nurse this baby and Lily. Nurse this baby first so this baby gets the bulk of my milk and Lily gets the left overs lol. Between Lily and the baby, I'm hoping the constant demand will keep my supply up. I'm still nervous, but starting to get kind of excited, too. I'm mostly just really hoping this baby is mellow and easy going lol.

I can't believe you're still nursing!! That's awesome. I really hope I can do it longer with number 2 ( whenever they decide to come ).

I feel like everyone around me has just had a baby or preggo and its making the baby fever even worse! Lol! Do you know anyone with small babies? We have a friend with a 2 month old and a neighbor with a 2 week old so I've been getting carter to say hi to any baby I can! Now he goes to them himself and says awwww and sometimes tute (cute). I'm hoping we can get his paci taken away and at least started on potty training before having another, but right now he doesn't understand that at all. We did have to transition him to a toddler bed this past week because he started climbing out of his crib! Wasn't planning on doing it this soon but glad we have now and it's actually been pretty easy!

Sorry I made this all about me . Good luck with everything!! Hope you have a great pregnancy

I didnt think I could, considering nursing wasn't off to a good start with her. She didnt nurse until she was nearly 3 weeks old. I think she's trying to more than make up for that time lol.

On Facebook a few friends and a cousin have had babies in the last few months. There are people at church who have very new babies, too. Lily doesn't encounter babies or other kids very often, as she doesn't go to the nursery anymore and hasn't in a few months. I'm not sure how she would react to this baby. The few times I do hold one of my friend's babies for a minute at church she gets totally jealous lol. I hope she does well around the new baby and doesn't feel forgotten or anything. I'm kinda worried about that because of how she is.

Lol thats fine! Carter's reaction to babies sounds adorable! Thanks so much! I'm doing ok so far. I've thrown up several times, but not near as bad as with Lily.

Well Congrats hun!! I never was nervous either time I was pregnant, when I found out I was pregnant with Hailey I was ecstatic, and prayed for a girl but Aidan was already a little over 2 and working on being potty trained so Hailey and Aidan are 3 years apart so it was easier! I can understand your nervous, but as the other ladies said as the time goes on you'll be less nervous and more excited!! Sometimes it takes longer, my friend is going through the same thing, she's pregnant with her third and it wasn't planned, but she's getting more and more excited! Just vent to use whenever you need to

Thank you! I'm excited yeah, but still kind of nervous. I'm starting to get the little flutters and jabs. I'm mostly just excited to stop throwing up lol.

OH my goodness, I haven't checked this thread in forever! It's so nice that it is still up and running! Congrats on the pregnancy SkyBaby. I'm pregnant too, due March 3, but will probably have another C-section end of February. My pregnancy wasn't planned either, as my OBGYN told me that my last baby was a bit of a miracle and that my odds of having another baby were nil. I go between being super excited to being super freaked out. This will be our third. Caleb is now 6, Dax will be 2 Nov 3. I'm still waiting for that bigger house, the Honda Pilot and more money in the bank, but it looks like it's not going to happen by February, lol.
Two years apart seems so hectic to me, but lots of people do it, so it can't be that bad.... right? Good luck with the pregnancy and if you end up with a planned C-section it is much much easier than a C-section after labour. I am also super scared of needles and things like that, and my heart starts beating like crazy just thinking about such things, but the thought of holding that baby shortly after surgery somehow makes it all worth it

Thanks! With DD, I had a Csection after 44 hours of labor. I am going to try again, but this time, not labor near as long if its obvious it's not working lol. We too need a bigger house and bigger car neither of which will happen within the next couple of years let alone by February lol. I'm getting more excited but still dreading the csection. That was the biggest disappointment of my experience with DD. I didn't see her until she was nearly 2 hours old even though there wasn't a thing wrong with either of us. I had the baby blues. Not full blown ppd, but it still wasn't easy. I'm just holding onto the hope this baby will be much easier both in having him and after he's born lol. The thought of 2 years apart didnt seem bad in theory, but with the challenges we faced with DD, I was really hoping we would wait another year or two, but we're here now.

Thanks! I am finally starting to get more excited over this. I'm still nervous, but I guess that won't really go away completely lol.
