Oh goodness..can I list this all here without writing a novel??

I fear not being able to handle two kids under two
I fear about money
I fear I won't get the hang of breastfeeding
I fear I will walk out of the room one day and Spencer will accidentally hurt the baby without meaning to
I fear I won't be a good mom to both of my kids
I fear Spencer will come to resent the new baby and have jealous feelings

I could go on and on...

Im sure I have a ton of fears, Im trying to block.. but DH is killing me.. he is soooo worried about everything.. the one i need to break him of I think is the fact that he is constantly checking him to make sure he is breathing and its starting to make me paranoid.

I have pretty much the same fears as Christy. I worry that I won't be a good mom to two kids. I worry that I won't have enough patience. I worry that Ben will resent the baby and/or me because I won't have as much time with him. I worry about how I'll make it all work and take care of everyone's needs because everyone seems to need so much.

That my marriage will somehow suffer from having the baby - instead of getting better. So far, that hasn't happened yet though!

I am petrified of PPD hitting as hard as it did after Collin.
I am afraid that if I don't find the correct medication soon, I will end up hurting myself or someone else.

Thankfully my psychiatrist is awesome and already willing to meet with me, I have my appointment set up for Wednesday. I have a list of 5 medications safe while BFing, unfortunately one of them is Zoloft, which is to partially blame for my suicide attempt when Collin was a few months old. Hopefully we can figure this out asap. I had a moment the other night where my husband had to take me away from the kids, as I could not stop crying and the PPD was kicking my butt.

Yea, this is turning into a huge ramble. I should have just said I am afraid of not getting the help I need with PPD

i am afraid i will never sleep again. thats pretty much it right now both my boys sleep at the sam time and i can nap. im afraid that she will be awake during nap time and i wont get the rest i need, as hubby is still working many hours this month. i will have to struggle through the first month by myself really. at least its only one month after that it will get better.

Immediate term, I worry about a c-section. Which would be such a kicker after 20+ yrs with these huge child-bearing hips!

After that, I worry a lot about SIDS, and what if the experience of having a child isn't what I thought it would be...what if I have any regrets.
