I know there's nothing I or anyone can do about it and it's a totally silly thing to worry about, so I have no idea why it has me stressing. Maybe some mamas here can give me encouraging words. This is seriously the stupidest thing I have ever worried over in pregnancy.
DD1 has the hugest, most oddly colored eyes and literally everywhere we go, people stop and gasp and comment loudly to her and each other about them.
Then I read her the Little House books and a frequent theme in the book is how brown-haired, brown-eyed Laura is always so jealous of her sister, Mary, who has blond hair and blue eyes. It's mentioned so often in the books that I started (irrationally) to worry about having a second girl and what her eye color would be.
Sometimes I worry that I will have a daughter and she will constantly have to hear comments about her sister's eyes from strangers and might be jealous that she doesn't get the same kind of attention. I don't want one girl to be jealous of her sister because people might comment more.
It's stupid, I know. I mean, it's absolutely ridiculous!
Thanks for listening, even if I do sound crazy. I really think I'm just emotional from hormones.
I wish I could worry about things other parents worry about like whether I should start saving for college or if he/she will make friends easily or not mind rear-facing in the car. Not whether she will be jealous of her sister.
And, now that I think about it, I should probably have a good talk with my SIL to ease my fears. She has five girls all brown-haired and brown-eyed except the oldest who has blond hair and blue eyes. She probably has some great advice, or she could just laugh at me. Either way, I might feel better about it.
Do you ever have really stupid, nonsensical fears about your unborn?
