I really want to try for another baby at the end of this year, but I am scared.
1. What if my current baby, who would be around 2 when the new one is born (God willing) gets jealous?
2. How do I give enough attention to both children?
3. How will I ever love another like I love my son?
Moms of more than one... please reassure me.

You should be scared, haha. The pregnancy will be a lot harder on you because you will be exhausted and chasing after a toddler. Then when baby is born, your 2 year old will still not be old enough to really do anything himself/herself. It's really stressful and emotional trying. I felt so much guilt over not giving my 2 year old enough attention because there was no time between pure sleep deprivation and constant care of a baby. It's hard, I'm not sure how I made it through.....but I told myself that I would NEVER have that close of an age gap again.
