Nervous about second baby

Hi mamas, any of you out there who have more than one babe? We want another baby but I’m nervous about being pregnant and taking care or a newborn with a toddler. I was so sick with my last pregnancy and also had psd and could walk. Neither of us have family near by. Looking for advice and maybe just to know I’m gonna make it 😂

It’s hard in the beginning and my patience was short. Looking back I should have rested more and had my husband take the kids

Hi Amy, You will make it. If you have a second child the first trimester will probably be tough but it will be worth it. I have had four babies in four years and I’ve had moments where I didn’t see how I would make it but I did and now I have much more of a break because my sons all play with each other constantly. I can’t imagine them not having each other. So, in short, yes it will be hard and it’s harder if there is no immediate family around but hopefully friends, and connections you make near you can help become a supportive community for you and you will feel encouraged to have more children. YOU CAN DO IT!

I will say you will make it but only because you will have no other choice I have two babies a two-and-a-half-year-old in 11 month old and I was in that same situation I got pregnant when she was about a year did not realize what a little s*** she was going to be as a toddler and let me tell you what it was crazy but I can't say your experience will be the same my husband was also deployed for 9 months so I'll just single mom on top of that but you know what I made it and I love my babies so either way whether it's going to be really hard or not if you really want that second baby girl you're going to make it

Having concerns and worries is normal...even healthy. Watching your kids bond is worth allllllll if the extra work. Trust me! (I have 4 girls with a max age difference of 18 months)

Just throwing this out there did your older kid ever be jealous of the younger kid because mine lives in constant fear of her older sister I can't even turn my back without hurting her and it infuriates me I tried positive discipline tried talking to her I try to pay attention to her I don't have a job I'm a stay-at-home mom and I read to each of them every night maybe I should just spend more time with my oldest one and that's why but she was a mommy's girl all the way I stopped breastfeeding around the time that she was born and I just think she's a super jealous I'm going to talk to professionals but I was just wondering if you had any problems with that
