When this LO is born, he/she will be 20 months apart from DD2, who is currently 13 months, teething, and up in the night. It's probably the lack of sleep talking, but I'm am really starting to stress about having two babies!! With both of my deliveries I've suffered from PPD, although with number 2 it was short lived because we knew what to look for. How can I handle that with a teenager and two babies? I do have some support from my family and my in-laws, but I'm feeling kind of detached and alone right now, even with DH. He is so excited for another baby that I don't want to worry him with my thoughts.
I have been so determined to make this pregnancy as stress free as possible. I am a major type A personality and need some techniques to begin to let go of this stress and control/organization issues. I honestly worry every day about how I'm going to keep the house clean with two small kiddos. I don't want this to over shadow the joy I should be feeling for this baby, its not fair to me, DH, or any of the kids.
I recently stumbled across a blog on having two babies close together and the mama/writer made it sound like complete hell. Does anyone have any words of wisdom? I'd really like to address this issue and move on peacefully. Thanks.
