Unless my placenta moves by my u/s next Thursday, we'll be having this baby on April 25, exactly 39 weeks. It isn't ideal, we really wanted to push it into the next week, but the ob overseeing my case will be gone that whole week, so Friday it is.

I thought I was doing ok with it, but now that we have it on the books, I'm sad all over again and feeling a little lost. I had an unplanned section with my son, so I know what's coming. I'm not sure what my problem is. I'm really freaked out about trying to deal with my toddler while recovering. I know women do this all the time and the kids are fine, but I'm terrified I'm going to scar him for life by invading his space with this new little person that takes so much attention, and on top of that I can't even hold him for the first few weeks. I suppose it will all work out, it just isn't what I hoped for.

I am starting to have the same fear but my son will be a month shy of 7 years old when baby shows up... I dunno what to expect with two kids and how I am going to juggle a kid in grade 2 and a baby.... Im scared.

I'm sorry I've had similar thoughts if I have a section. Not being able to lift a toddler will be HARD. I guess I just plan on holding her while I'm sitting on the couch or cuddling her in bed or something.

Try not to stress all will be ok!! Either way it goes you will find ways to snuggle your toddler while you heal. I'm sorry you are going through this.

I'm sorry to hear about the possible c section, I know that's not ideal.. Once its said and done and baby is here, things will fall perfectly in place. And all those overwhelming feelings will be gone. Well I'm sure there will be times when your get overwhelmed with having 2 kids, but it works out.
