Soooo, DH has decided he wants another baby. Our first is 18 months old and we miscarried our angel 9 months ago, it was a suprise pregnancy. We plan on trying VERY soon so I'd like to hear your stories of your transition to two children. I have some fears!
Specific things I'd love to hear about is:
1.) How old was child #1 when you gave birth?
2.) How was labor and delivery?
3.) How was child # 1 with the new baby?
4.) Was it hard adjusting to the change?
5.) How did you involve #1 with your pregnancy and when the new baby arrived?
6.) What was everyday life like with child # 1 and a newborn?
7.) Did it cause stress on your relationship with your SO/DH?
8.) How did you squeeze in you time?
9.) Any advice you would give to a second time mom?
Sorry for so many questions, I'm anxious!!
