how did your expectations of your life and body differ after each child? Was it easier or harder each time?

being pregnant with my second was harder - I was exhuasted and had to chase my toddler.

but life after he was born, was about the same, Nate fit into our routine pretty easily.

I was so exhausted with my second pregnancy. My son was 17 months when I found out and boy was I tired!!

Adjusting to two children was really tough for me. Took six months.

Going from 0 children to 1 was hard

Going from 1 to 2 was doubly hard (3 years apart)

Going from 2 to 4 (twins) was a piece of cake (3 months from birth of my 2nd to pregnancy of twins)

Going from 4 to 5 was easiest (1.5 years from twins birth)

With each one I appreciated my body more, saw it more beautiful and more powerful and able. I learned to give more selflessly and be more compassionate/loving.
