I'm getting married in a few months and we'll be TTC immediately. By the time v2.0 is born, v1.0 will be seven years old. We've been deliberately vague as far as the "How does a baby get in your belly?" discussion to this point, and we know we'll have to be a bit more forthcoming once I'm actually pregnant.
Anyway - How have you handled a pregnancy and "early days" with regard to an only child who is around that age? Other Half is not a "baby person" and I have no concerns about the two of us fussing over an infant and leaving v1.0 to entertain himself, as Other Half would rather be playing with v1.0 than dealing with an infant. However, v1.0 and I have been living together/apart from Other Half for most of v1.0's life (long story/work situation - I chose to remain near my family with v1.0 and we tried to make visits as frequent as possible), and that has me a bit concerned.
v1.0 is quite excited to have a sibling and has been asking for one for some time now, but I had a very negative experience with the birth of my younger sibling (4 years' difference) and I worry about handling this poorly.
I will happily take under advisement any suggestions or experiences that you might have - thank you!
