2nd + babies?

post #1 of 61
Thread Starter 
We have a first time mommies thread so I thought we could use our own.

This is our 5th baby. Anyone else already have children? Anyone else have lots of children?

This is my 2nd babe. My first is 2 and just finished potty learning. I'm glad we finished before I got pg. I am so tired right now and more than a little nauseas.
I'm a little worried about having 2 it seems like a huge change. Right now my son is our world and it will be strange to split my time between 2.

2nd baby for us - I have a 13 month old son.

How are you ladies doing? Anyone feeling a little sad? I feel guilty that my son won't have us all to himself...

This is our 3rd. Our other 2 are so close together and it has worked out very very well for us. they are now to the point where they entertain each other- at first it was a lot of work. I think this one will either be a piece of cake or drive me over the edge. Either way.....

This will be our 3rd. We also have a 1 year old and almost 3 year old. We're planning one more after this too.

This is number two. We just found out last night and I'm still trying to digest it all. I'm 42! EDD is Feb. 7, one day after my b-day. I'm still freaking out a bit.

This is my second pregnancy but third child... we have 22 month-old twins! And, as I said in another post, I have a suspicion that there are more than one this time too! I'm just realizing that the timing of this pregnancy/birth will coincide with a lot of milestones for the twins--potty learning (hopefully), switching to a toddler bed, and adjusting to a sibling.... hmmm should be interesting!

This is my 4th pregnancy--the first one resulted in my son, the second in another son who passed away, the third a miscarriage. And my daughter was adopted from Vietnam.

This is my 4th pregnancy 3rd baby. We just found out yesterday & the edd is Feb 8th. ALthough everyone is being told(when we tell them) the beginning of Feb. We have a 4 yr old & 6 yr old daughters. I'm anxious to see how they react, the 4 yr old has been unusually clingy lately.

This is our 3rd. Like iowaorganic, I've got 2 boys 2yrs apart, and the hard stage seems to be behind us. Right now they keep each other entertained, and life has been really great lately.

This is the first pregnancy I'm totally thrilled about from the start. That sounds horrible, but with my first, altho planned and desperately wanted, I was a little apprehensive about how everything was going to change. I was content to just be pregnant... Then my 2nd was a suprise and a little soon, and like several mamas here, I wondered how we'd handle switching gears from an only to 2. (Don't worry too much, its amazing to see your children together, and your love just multiplies!)Now I can't wait, its all going to be awesome and I just want this pregnancy to fly by so I can meet our next little one.

We've always planned on 4 or 5, but this might be our last, we'll see how life goes!

Baby #3 for us. DD #1 is 11 (will be 12 at time of birth), and DD #2 is 9 (will be almost 10 at time of birth)... so we are starting all over on the baby stuff!
post #16 of 61
This will be my 2nd bio child and my 3rd child overall (I have a 3 yo dd and a 12 yo dsd).
post #17 of 61
I have 4 yo twins so this will be my 3rd- or 3rd and 4th! I find out tomorrow how many are in there. I've been trying for a while and have had 2 m/c so I'm just hoping this one sticks.

another baby # 3 here. I have 2 wonderful daughters already.An almost 2 1/2 year old and a 5 year old. They will be just 3 (jan) and almost 6 (March), so it looks like we are aiming for three birthday months in a row. LOL. A little stressful following the whole holiday season and so many family birthdays in Jan.

I was very nervous about how it would go when adding my 2nd child to the family. Your love grows and there is easily a place for your next child. The one thing to look out for, is to make sure you don't always let people help with the older one. They are all trying to be nice and let you have time with the new baby which is very good, just make sure (if you have people helping) that they take the baby sometimes and you do something special with the older child. You need to actually set things up like this b/c the older child can wait for things wile the baby can't.

The love they have for each other is amazing. Watching them play just makes your heart swell. (they will fight too ). I sometimes felt bad for the younger one too b/c she didn't get as much one on one attention as her older sister got, but they get something in exchange they get an older sibling with whom they can play and communicate.

This is my 2nd pregnancy and 3rd baby. I have 2.5 year old twins.

This is my 2nd baby as well. I have a 19 mo. old dd and I also feel a little sad for her to not have us all to herself anymore. When I mentioned that to dh, though, he said he isn't sad at all. He was an only child and he is soooo excited that she will have a little brother or sister to grow up with. He always wished he had one. It made me feel a lot better to hear his POV on it.

I'm hoping there is only one in there, mainly because I want a VBAC but also because twins are such hard work. DH is hoping for twins behind my back and I know it is a possibility since it runs on both sides of our family. My dd has 2 young Kurdish girls who take care of her at dc and they told me it is a tradition in their culture to ask the older child what the baby's gender will be. Every time we ask her she says, "sister brother." I'm hoping that doesn't mean I've got one of each!!
