Looking for advice on helping my DD
I am going to have DD2 in Sept. and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to help DD1 get ready. I am actually not so concerned with her adjusting to the new baby, since she was the one who let me know I was pregnant (when you non-verbal five year old starts saying Baby and pointing at your belly, you know something is up). She has been helping me pick out stuff for her baby sister at yard sales and such, and babbles at my belly all the time. She seems really excited to be having a baby sister, I know that could all change once she is born and am preparing for that. My main concern is that I am going to have a c-section and I am not sure how to prep DD for seeing Mommy with an IV and stuck in a hospital bed. Can anyone give me any ideas on how I can make that less scary for her?
BTW: Dh thinks I am worrying too much. He says that she will be so excited about her baby sister that she won't even notice me.
