  • Prepare yourself. You have 9 months and by then you will have a 23 month old so it won't be that bad. Don't stress and remember no matter how bad it may be it could always be worse. They will be far apart in age really so it wont be as hard as you think. Remember to show the older one how to treat a baby and still give them personal time with you. INclude the older one and things will be okay. Don't let jealousy take over and don't change the rules or routines because of a new baby.

  • Yep, that was me. My first was 15 months when I found that I was pregnant. My kids are 2 years and 1 month apart. I love it. They are really great with each other! I would not change it for the world. I thought that it would be really hard when my second was first born, but my oldest was such a great help, even just at two years old! Through out my pregnancy I talked a lot about babies, and that I was having another one and that my son was going to be a big brother. I involved him in a lot. Picking out baby clothes, bottles, etc...I made sure to spend good quality time with him after the baby was born too so that he didn't feel left out. They are 2 and 4 now and they are best buds. Of course they have their little fights every now and then, but they are 2 and 4 and siblings are supposed to do that. You'll be fine! Just relax and enjoy being pregnant again! Congrats!!

  • Why should you stop and feel bad for someone else???? It was your choice to have unprotected sex and risk getting pregnant. I wouldn't and don't feel bad for you. It was your choice and no one should feel bad for you. If you feel bad then you should have thought about it ahead of time. OURS the question was about her not you.

  • I found out I was pregnant with #2 when DD was only 11 months. I can't give any advice yet because he isn't due until July 17th, but I'm in the same position :) You are not alone! One thing I have had to do so far is transition Chloe into her big girl bed. That went well and she loves it now :) Good luck!
