Do you feel guilty for being pregnant? If you still have small children at home?

I didn't at first, but now that it's getting closer (15weeks left) I can't help but feel a little guilty. My daughter is 19 months and I just feel now maybe I should of waited just a little longer to have another baby. Anyone else feeling like this?

  • Don't feel guilty!! Your new baby will most likely sleep a lot at first which gives you and your dd time to transition. Plus, she is going to LOVE having a sibling. When your new baby is about 6 months old and sitting up, you will have so much fun watching them interact. My kids are all very young (4 kids 4 and under). At that 6 month age they would start playing with toys and their siblings started playing with them a LOT. It was wonderful watching the interaction. I remember thinking "this is why I love that they are so close in age." Have fun, get sleep, relax - nothing will go right at times and other times it will be absolutely perfect!

  • my DD and twin boys were 21 months was tough on my DD, but now (18 months later) they play together and eat together and just all around can enjoy one another!

  • No. My son is 6 and he has been on a roller coaster ride with us through 3 losses. We're finally pregnant with a healthy baby and all 3 of us are so happy and ready for her to born!

    I can understand why you feel that way though. It was a little overwhelming being pregnant when my son was under 2. Best wishes!

  • I'm having mixed feelings about this. My daughter is 18 months and I'm about 2 months into prego. My thing is I'm afraid on if it's a boy, will my SO pay more attention to the baby more than our daughter. IDK it's all a wait and see.
