Pregnant and...(moms with kiddos close in age)

Freakin the fuck out. Dd is 13 months right now which means there will be less than a two year age difference.

I'm a SAHM and I spend every waking hour with my daughter, now I'm worried I have to divide that time with a newborn. Right now dd is really fighting bed times a d gets up usually once in the night. What if it's something she won't grow out of before I'm getting up every 2 hrs with a newborn.

How do these moms do it?

I'm also kind of sad that dd won't be the baby anymore, I feel like I'm totally screwing her over. I don't feel like in ready to have 2 children, so soon anyway. I was so excited when we found out we were pregnant the first time and while I am excited I feel totally burnt out just thinking about how hard it's going to be? Please someone tell me it's not that difficult to have 2 under 2.

Really? My dd was an easy baby. Maybe I'll get lucky again. I just picture me ripping my hair out.

I felt like that as well...my oldest was 13 months when I got pregnant, and they are 23 months apart...

It was harder in some ways, and much easier than I imagined...and now that they're 3 and 5 I couldn't imagine it any different...they are best friends and I feel like my oldest would be missing so much in her life if her little sister wasn't around...

I have a 2 year old, 1 year old, and 3 month old. Overall, it's easier than I expected.

It'll be hard but you can do it. By the time the baby gets here maybe your dd will sleep through the night.

I had 3 under 2 for about a month. My ds was born aug 1st (4 weeks early) and my twins didn't turn 2 until aug 28th. It really wasn't too bad, but then again my twins have slept through the night consistently since about 6 months. I bet you'll be surprised how much more independent your LO will be 9 months (approximate of course) from now. You can do it mama! Congrats & good luck.

Goodness you must have your hands full! I bet you are really organized and efficient. I worry I'm not cut out for it.
