  • I feel the same way about my 2nd on the way.. I am more worried about not being able to give my 1st enough attention or him feeling left out or whatever! I hope he doesn't feel that way. He will be 6 1/2 years old when baby boy 2 arrives.. AHH!!

  • yes.i was at first, but as the pregnancy got further along i CALMMED down. Now, I am freaked out about this #3. i keep trying to figure out how I will handle 3 instead of 2. My oldest just turned 5 though. My daughter is 2 soon to be 3 so i guess by the time the next 1 comes it won't be so bad.just have faith it will all work out.

  • Im worried its my third pregnancy. I have a six year who will be seven when the baby is born. My last pregnancy ended in a M/C. I worry because I feel as though Im starting all over again. Im around 4 weeks now.

  • I felt the exact same way when i got preggo with my second i was really afraid of not being able to give both of them the attention they need. Then i had my baby and got into the swing of taking care of both and it was actually easy. Even tho my second baby turned out to be autistic they are still both easy to take care of and give attention to. They are now 3 and 4 and im preggo with my 3rd baby now and i still worry a little but i know everything will work out. And im very exited cause it's me and my new hubby's first and probly last baby lol
