And 5 reasons Pregnancy has been harder second time!

So we kept things positive last time, with my 5 Reasons my Pregnancy has been easier second time now I’m playing devils advocate…what if I’m just being naiive and stupid?

Been there, done that!
Oh no, it’s all coming back to me now – how on earth am I going to do all that again and with a toddler?!!

No time!
There is no time for fortnightly pedicures and pampering. No regular massages. No classical music is being played to bump, no yoga, pilates or aqua classes are being taken, no reflexology or acupuncture to speed things up (in fact, stay in there a little longer – I still have things to sort)! This time I am mearly an oven doing it’s job with no time dwell or congratulate myself, there are too many other jobs to finish first!

Tired…oh so very tired!
When the end of the day arrives, when dinner is eaten, laundry is folded and pots and pans are put away…BED is the only thing I can think of, on a really good (or really bad) day I might even manage to climb in for an hour at lunchtime too!

Guilt
Here’s the biggie – we are all plagued by it. I already feel guilty for bringing a baby into the family to take our attention away from Ted which is ironic because number two is happening quickly because I felt guilty at the thought of Ted not having siblings! Then there’s the baby, they will never have the 1:1 time Ted has been treated to, will we know and understand them as well? Love them as much? The questions are endless and unanswerable – I guess we’ll just plod along and do our best, as ever.

What if?…
It’s not all OK, what if they never sleep? What if they don’t like us? What if Ted struggles? What if I’m too tired to be any good? What if I can’t handle two? What if, what if, what if?? Aaaaaahhhhhhhh!!

  1. Thank you for such an honest post. I’ve been worrying about all of your points for pregnancy two. A friend of mine has just given birth to number two and says that she is allocating specific time to number one which I might try #bestandworst x

  2. That’s a good idea, I’m planning to get a special feeding box with novelty toys we just get out at baby feeding time too – I hope that might help a little too. In all honesty although really tiring it hasn’t been as tough as I expected x

  3. Yeah it really does and I forget all the time until I sit down in the evening and spill dinner on my bump or try and squeeze out of a small parking space!! Haha xx

  4. I think guilt is the biggest thing putting me off having another. I don’t want my daughter to have to share me with anyone else (right now, anyway) and I don’t want her to feel pushed out either.

    Really interesting to hear this side of things as well as the positive. #BestandWorst

  5. aww bless you! The tables have turned this week haven’t they? I bet you are so tired being pregnant with another with a toddler. We are thinking about another for next year. I’m sure try not to feel guilty. You will be bringing a sibling for Ted and after a bit of time he will love the company! You will manage as you have done it all before! Things I tell myself! Thanks for sharing with #bestandworst and see you soon lovely xx
