I’m 2.5 weeks (theoretically) away from meeting our baby, and I have such mixed emotions.
First and foremast, I’m sad that my pregnancy is coming to an end. I love being pregnant. LOVE it. As both strangers and people I know ask me “how much longer?” a common follow-up question is “are you ready to be done?” and my answer always surprises them.
No. I’m not. I love having a big belly and feeling the baby move inside of me, and knowing this is potentially my last pregnancy makes me so sad to know it’s ending soon.
On the other hand, I’m that much closer to meeting our baby! But I still have irrational fears of not loving him or her as much as I adore the Child, or having enough energy to share my love and attention among the Child, new baby and Manfriend.
How did you prepare (or not) for the arrival of your second child?
