Emotional Rollercoaster Going From 1 to 2

Hi mummies, 


I am currently 39 weeks pregnant with my second baby, my first child is just 1 year and 4 months old. I fell pregnant with my second child when my first was 6 months old on the first try! 

Our second baby was planned and very wanted, but these last fews I have really been feeling emotional that these are the last days of just being a family of 3. These are the last days where I can give my full attention to my daughter, these are the last days I will treasure forever as just a family of 3. 

I have been having contractions here and there so I think baby is coming any day now. Yesterday morning when my little girl woke up I went into her room and just gave her a big cuddle with tears rolling down my face. It’s such an emotional time going from one baby to two, It’s almost like a guilty feeling that I have to convince myself this won’t make me love my daughter any less, it just means our hearts will grow even more. 

I guess mom guilt is real and you have it about almost everything! How did you mums feel when you was pregnant with your second child and also how did you feel once they arrived?

    This is just mum guilt dont worry! I have 3 children and each time towards the end of my pregnanies I have beem feeling exactly the same. You love all your children the same your heart just grows bigger and seening your babies become a big brother or sister is one of the best experiences. I have mine all close together and do feel a little bit guilty sometimes that its impossible to give them all one on one time but thats how it is they dont know any different.

    I know it’s hard to imagine now but your heart just grows even bigger with even more love to give, even when you thought that wasnt possible when you just have the one child, but it does, you love each child with your whole heart. Also, watching the siblings grow to love eachother unconditionally is simply amazing, there’s just no words to describe that.
