I'm 22 weeks pregnant with #4, I have a 18yr old son, a 14yr old daughter and a 1yr old baby boy and we live in a 3 bedroom house in London.
I'm worrying myself sick over what will happen when #4 is born in early march. The problem is there is nowhere for baby to go. ATM the baby is in my bedroom with DH and myself in a cot next to my side of the bed. I cant really put 1yr old in with his brother or sister because he still wakes in the night and will disturb them.
I just don't know how I'm going to cope, I know it sounds silly but its really getting me down. Is it possible to share a bedroom with a newborn and a toddler? Will they wake eachother up? I already suffer with depression and it sounds silly to others, but all the worry over where the new baby will sleep is making it worse.
I suffered with crippling PND after the birth of my last baby and was put on Venlafaxine which worked but I had to come off of it when I fell with this pregnancy. My Dr changed my meds to Sertraline which is safer in pregnancy but not without risks and it doesn't work as well. I feel like I'm falling over the edge again and its terrifying me :(
I really want to BF the new baby as well, I couldn't with the last one due to the meds I was on and it feels like this pregnancy is going the same way
I suppose what I'm asking for is for someone to tell me it will be ok, I just don't know what to do
Thanks for reading, Terri xxx
