Here's what nobody tells you about going from one child to two.

Nobody tells you how overwhelmed you’re going to be when you get home from the hospital. Nobody tells you just how brutal those first few weeks will be. Nobody tells you you’re going to cry and cry, for anything and everything. And mostly because you feel so guilty that you don’t have as much time for your first child. Nobody tells you just how torn you’re going to feel all of the time, between caring for and nurturing your new baby and spending time with and including your first. Nobody tells you that your first is going to be so jealous, and might have a hard time adjusting to a new baby in the house, a new child that they have to share your love with. Nobody tells you that having a second child is a learning curve for not just you, but your first child too. Nobody tells you just how different life is going to be. Nobody tells you how much love you’re going to receive from two little beings. Nobody tells you that yes, you’re going to feel the same love for your second as you did your first, it’s like becoming a mom for the first time all over again - and you will cry out of happiness again. Nobody tells you that your first child will now have a best friend, a partner in crime, and you’ll take pride and joy in knowing that you’re providing them that friend. Nobody tells you that your heart is going to expand so wide, you didn’t think it was possible to hold so much love in your heart. Having my second child has been hard, really hard, and I’ve been struggling. I’m exhausted. My first has been struggling, and she’s confused with a new dynamic. We’ve been struggling as a family. But we’ve also been ever so happy and filled with love. I not only have one child who sees me as their world, but two..and how lucky am I? Nobody tells you or can warn you just how hard it’s going to be - but also just how filled with love you’re going to be and how full you’ll feel. Going from one child to two? God is it hard. But my God, is it the best thing to ever happen to me 💖

Thanks Jen, my first is 13 months old and my second will be born in just under 3 months. I've been so worried and excited at the same time. I feel like I finally got the hang of being a mum now, I hope I can do just as good of a job with 2. I needed to read this 💕

Pregnant with my second & my first was a breeze. Everyone else that saw me do it alone with my husband and no help because we lived over an hour from any family bragged about how I handled it gracefully never complained but I’m really nervous this time around it’ll be much much different.
