Write a new blog
|10-8-2010 - week 32
||My mood while writing this blog:|
I have to start off saying that I feel really guilty. I havnt had much time this pregnancy to keep up with the blogs and pictures like I did every week with my son. He is a boy so i'm sure that when I give him the book of blogs I printed off, he wont care, but I know my daughter will. I have only a couple for her. I feel like she is getting jipped in the long run since i'm so busy with my 11 month old. I sure hope she doesnt feel this way later on in life :( Then again... could be the hormones making me feel this way.
I dont feel ready. She could be here in as little as 3 and a half weeks, and I dont feel prepaired. We have all her stuff, but I am not emotionally prepaired. I am having all sorts of doubts and I dont think that helps the sleep issue. I feel like i'm going to let one or the other down, or I wont be able to handle 2 so close together, by myself when bob goes back to work. He only gets a week off, which I find as sexist. A woman in his same position gets at least 6 weeks paid off, he gets a week, and its only because he is taking vacation. a load of bull if you ask me. Is anyone else worried about having 2 instead of 1?

- Wednesday, 11 Aug oh goodness yes, I worry. My sister has three children. The oldest is 10 so she helps a bit but my sister has one who is a couple of weeks old and a 14 month old. She is coping ok, she has a pretty relaxed attitude to everything which I think is working well. You will cope, Im sure x x christinarose
- Tuesday, 10 Aug My 2 are 15 months apart and all I can say ism YOU CAN DO IT! They are both yours and you just know that you have no other choice but to take care of them. The first few weeks are tiring yes, but you adjust. I learned to function on very little sleep. AND, I learned that it's way easier to function tired then it is to try and sleep. You just end up frustrated. Also, getting into a good routine right away really helped me. AND lol, things get easier :) Mine are now almost 1 and just over 2 and life is good. I'm even hoping for another soon :) Just remember, sleep whenever you can, but don't force it :) And relax! Things all work out, and you will be very happy with your family :)
