Hey everyone!!! I'm new to the board. I have a six year old daughter Mya from a previous relationship. My DH has been with us since before she was two. He's the only Dad she's ever known and they love each other very much. After a lot of debate and consideration, we've (finally) decided to have #2. I can't wait. It's hard to imagine starting all over again from diapers, but I really do want another baby. And Mya is absolutely thrilled at the idea!!! I'm kind of nervous. She's been an only child for six years and we do tend to spoil her. I know that having another baby will take away time from her. So I'm a little scared. I work full time and as much as I would love to be a SAHM, we cannot afford it. Well, we could, but then we'd be eating noodles everynight LOL.... So, I'm kind of scared. It's one thing to find out your pregnant and another to actually try to become pregnant!!! And I'm worried that there may be conflict between the siblings!!! Is it difficult??? Having two children so far apart. We would actually like to have two more. But I'm scared. I'd secretly like to have twins... LOL... then I would have to be a SAHM because of the cost of daycare!!! HAHA... But DH would not be happy with that one!

Well, if anyone has any advice, let me know!

Mckenna is 5 1/2 years older and its worked out really well for us... she has been a great big sister and loves to help with the baby. We haven't had too many jealousy issues, really more about giving her enough one on one time!
GL with TTC!

Thanks for my siggy Steph2007!
