I was just wndering if any of you ever felt sad or a longing for the way your relationship used to be with your first child after your second was born. As mothers who are so closely attached to our children and share such a special relationship I wonder for myself if having a second would make me sad for the way it would change the dynamics of mine and DS relationship. My son is 2 and 7 months currently and my hormones are raging to have another. DS is a very sweet, easy going, compassionate child and I feel he would be able to handle the change about as well as any 3 1/2 yr old could. I feel ready but a little scared about how it will change our relationship. I love the closeness we share now and would hope to continue it the best I could after baby #2 was born but since I have no idea what the reality of that will really be like I'm feeling slightly ambivalent. Even with this concern I can't stop fantasizing about being pregnant and having another. What do all you insightful mamas think?
