I'm obsessing over my kids. The closer it gets to my due date the more I just feel like I gotta hang on to every min with my kids b4 this big change. I do it more with my youngest cause the oldest had 5 years to be the baby n DD2 will be 3 when this lil one comes. I keep looking at her and getting sad cause she's not gone be the baby anymore. You always hear about how the middle child always feels left out and I don't ever want her to feel that way. Since I'm the oldest of my siblings I can see and detect things with my oldest but I just feel like how can I make each one feel special. Maybe its just the crazy PH (pregnancy hormones). Plus the fact that I don't think DD2 will handle not being the center of attention well.
I actually can relate to how you feel. I keep thinking that my DS won't be the "baby" anymore and it's always just been me and him. DH deploys a lot. Now we are going to have a new member in the family and Im excited and sad at the same time. So I have been spending so much time with my son and basically taking it all in. He will be 3 when the baby is born. so I completely understand how you feel. It will all work out in the end. Just enjoy your time with your DD! I think she will be happy to have a new sibling! *hugs*
