If it's been a few years since you've had a baby, do you suddenly find yourself feeling nervous about things like you were a first time mom again? I'm sure most of it will come back to me, but for some reason, I do worry that I've forgotten a lot of things. And I'm strangely worried that breastfeeding won't be so easy again, even though I've done it twice successfully for 15+ months.

Anyone else??

I'm worried about adding a baby to the crazy house I have right now. I want her to have a peaceful upbringing, but our house is not peaceful right now (2 rambunctious kids out of my 3). I'm worried about potty training again (even though that's a while away)
Thank you Jaidynsmum for the beautiful siggy!

People think I'm crazy because I'm freaking out more this time (5 yr age gap between my youngest and this baby) than I did when I had. 11 month age gap! I'm used to my sleep again, and now I'm starting over with sleepless nights, diapers, and someone needing mme 24/7!

Oh I am definitely worried its been 14 years!!!!! DD is totally independent so this is completely starting over i am sure it will come back to me and I know my DD will be a great big sister and help for me so that eases things a bit. I am still nervous because its just so different...

I have a 13 year gap so I'm pretty much a first time mom again. I do find myself worrying about everything, usually it's something new I obsess over per week. This week I'm terrified of PPD.

i have a 9 yr age gap , so it's like 1st baby all over and this time i'm living on my own, so i'm greatful that i have my mil to help me, she works part time, so she'll come over and i can drive to my mom's if i need help. i'm having a girl so everything is all girlie and i'm not used to that. i have a boy, so it's going to be a new experience. i'm nervous about breastfeeding, i've never done it and i'd love to if my milk actually comes in this time. not 2 weeks later. also it's nice that my hubby is so involved in my pregnancy and will be after she's born. i didn't get that with nick, his father just didn't want to be and was immature.

It's so weird because Im just so excited to have him and bring him home. I feel so much more confident being a mother this time around. It will be 3 years since having a newborn but I'm not nervous at all. I feel really prepared

I'm worried about just about everything! LOL!! I'll have an almost 8yr gap between kids, and it all feels brand new. I'm scared to give birth, I'm nervous about the lack of sleeping, and for some reason I just keep seeing myself dropping her. I even had a dream the other night where I just couldn't hold on to her, and kept dropping her over and over again. She was fine - miraculously - but it sucked.

I had a 7 year age gap but don't remember worrying too much back then. I was so ready and excited we were finally having another baby. That baby got a lot of time dedicated to it too because the older one was so independent by then. I worried more about #3 joining us so quickly and now #4. I think the mommy things come back to you but I worry about getting things done with 3 little ones and taking them along to my older sons activities.

I had a 4 year gap with my first two and now a seven year gap for me and 9 for hubby plus this is our first together. Its not so much scary now, but i keep thinking about the gap. My youngest will be in middle school when she is starting... my eldest will be getting her license!

My two oldest are 5 yrs apart and this one and my youngest currently will be 8.5 yrs apart.

I guess my biggest thought (not really a worry) is how my oldest will react. I'm not too worried about my middle child, but my oldest has me pondering. He already struggles with self confidence and the ideas that come with being the oldest role model but I'm praying every day that he's head over heels for our little guy and just a big help!
