*snip*What concerns do you have regarding adding to your family? I don’t know if I have the energy to do this. It took me 2 years with DD to feel like I was adequately balancing my mom life and my job. Obviously I still struggle with it but I was a complete mess for 2 years. I know it will be temporary but starting over with that terrifies me. And also the lack of sleep (part of the reason it took 2 years is bc DD didn’t STTN until she turned 2). *snip*
Coming late to this August party!
I hope the daycare switch goes smoothly, and I think like some universities do,
daycares should have “tuition freezes,” because we make family planning decisions
around them etc. etc. Also I did informaseq for my bloodwork last night, and it
took 7 (business) days, 9 days total to get the results, and I called to get
them (“like where are my results????”). Also we skipped right to a full bed.
Part of this is because DD needs us to rest with her, but also I just don’t see
the point of a toddler bed unless you need it!
I so feel you on the importance of providing LO with a sibling. I have two
brothers. And DH was an only child (with some step siblings). I was definitely
the one pushing for three! And I am so so sorry about your brother. Major hugs.
I can’t wrap my mind around that.
That is SO cute re: DS hugging you. And I feel you on the being outnumbered
My second was an easier newborn than DD, so FX the same for you! And re: the
ears, Mom ALWAYS knows best!
Ugh I go through a weird phase from the end of my maternity leave until 10
months or so where I am so resentful I have to work, because I want to focus on
being a good mom. Legit might quit this time (and then regret it a few months
What is your business?
Yes. I totally love both equally. Exactly equally. And the “good” moments they
share make me love each of them equally more. I promise you will feel the same
(although I still strongly argue that my brother Justin is my mom’s favorite
maybe I said this elsewhere, but we have simila raged kids! My DD is 3 years
and ten months, and DS is 19 months! So we are both crazy haha.
+ Days: March 12th, 8 weeks and 5 days (so crazy!)
How old is/are your other kid(s)? DD is 3 years
and 10 months and DS is a little over 19 months
How is/are your kiddo(s) doing? Pretty good! DS
has been a little cranky, but he has his last two baby teeth coming in AND he’s
had a little cold, so I’m like, dude, I get it. DD is great… but god she can
throw tantrums/whine with the best of them!
What are you looking forward regarding adding to
your family? If all goes well, I just can’t believe I am getting to have three
babies! It took a lot of work to get DH (sort of?) on board, and we started
pretty late, so I’m just amazed. I also freaking love newborns; I love newborn
clothes, I love middle of the night snuggles, I love breastfeeding blah blah blah.
What concerns do you have regarding adding to
your family? When do you pump with three kids? Do you sleep? How many times will DS throw something on the baby's face? Do I seriously have to keep working?
So far, is this pregnancy the same or different
from your previous pregnancy(ies)? So far I’d say it’s like my pregnancy with
DD, because I had extreme nausea/vomiting with DS and a milder version (puking
maybe once a day) with DD. BUT yesterday reminded me of my pregnancy with DS.
So far today is better… so we’ll see!
