My advice.... get the books "The Baby Book" (Dr Sears) and "The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding" (LLLI) if not currently owned and join a group supportive of natural mothering (like La Leche League). :o)
My first pregnancy was awesome! This one, not so much. I'm so much more aware of every ache and pain and tingle... And just waiting for pre-eclampsia to rear it's head a second time. I wish I could just enjoy this pregnancy, but it's been pretty stressful since about 30 weeks...
Enjoy it if you can!
Knowledge is power. Determine what you want for your birth. Educate yourself and empower yourself on how to achieve your goal.
Hey, congratulations! This is so exciting! I'm working on conceiving my second right now. One thing that I wanna let you know about is elimination communication. Do some research on that because you might find that having a different relationship with diapers a second time around might be helpful. Good luck!
Oh, and if your first one's still in diapers, you can see my site for a resource for doing that potty training non-coercively within 7 days. My friend teaches about that. I guess my biggest advice then would be try not to have 2 in diapers at the same time if you can! :o)
