I'm sorry if this is a re-post, I tried to find my original post, but couldn't see it. Anyway, my name is Alicia and I have a 2 and a half year old son, been married to my husband a little over 3 years. When my son was born, we sincerely intended for him to be an only child. My husband has only one sister and I myself am an only child, so we were very comfortable with a small family. However, after the loss of my in-laws to sudden and quick illnesses, we re-evaluated our situation and decided that we would like to add another child to our lives and give our son a sibling.
I had my IUD taken out last week and wil begin trying in earnest in a month or so to work on conceiving baby #2.
In all honesty I am a bit scared to have two children in the house. Growing up an only child, who was very quiet, reserved and content to play by myself, a household with two children is a big change from what I'm used to. My son is active and I love it, but having two around will be a whole different experience, one that I do have some fear of. Any ladies have advice for me as I embark on this new "mommy of two" adventure? Thanks!!
