at 6 am. I am going to have two kids. : : :

How am I going to do it, nursing, diaper washing?Our bed is only a queen,how will we all fit?Our car in tiny, one car seat barely fits This is the first time in FORVER I have been able to sit at the key board with out V in my lap, she thinks I just sit here to nurse her!

I woke up pukey and cant get back to sleep,dh is snoring away and V is spread out across the bed.OMG, it just really hit me this morning.How are we going to do this, our house is tiny, really tiny?One bedroom, 700 sq feet.
Plus, I really think I want to have a home birth but we are 35 minutes from a hospital incase there is trouble and the birth center here closed down.I LOVE my midwife, V is birth was induced at 42 weeks, pitocin sucks even though i did have a natural birth, minus the pitocin.
Thanks for letting me vent,
Kaitlin
I am sorry, i just needed to vent

This keeps me up at night, too. Along with Ms. Nurs-a-thon. That's my scariest thought, will the next one sleep as bad as the first? Will I be nursing two all night?

How are you gonna do it? How are we gonna do it? I've got 350 sq feet. And a queen bed, but DD, 7 years old, has a loft bed.

I have two and honestly it's not as hard as people say IMO. My boys play together all day long. I have my moments of "what have I gotten myself into" but most of the time it's just good times around here.

Mommy to THREE sweet boys & ONE sweet girl + a newb due in February!  I need a nap.

Our king-sized bed is the best purchase we've ever made!! If you can swing it, DO IT!! Ours is just the mattress, box springs, and the frame that the mattress store threw in for free.

6am is just a horrible horrible time, especially 6am and pukey with babe and husband bed hogs! both of my babes, first dd and now this little bean growing inside of me, were 100 percent wanted and planned, but i did and still do have those crazy "what have i done!" thoughts.

i just have to keep reminding myself through the hormones, lack of sleep, and nausea that life with my dd is 99 percent great and most times even easier than i imagined it would be. life with two will work itself out and babies don't take up much room (says me in the afternoon while dd is napping angelically and i'm getting ready to join her...)

Before we had one, we thought we wanted three. Now we're saying two and we're frightened byt he next two years of our lives. We're just hoping and praying that the second will be a better sleeper than the first because it would be damn near impossible to be a worse sleeper than our first daughter

Used to be stay at home parent to our two lovely girls, survived nursing school with family intact, about to graduate and looking for a job! I low-supply nursed my bio daughter for 3 years.

I used to want 3 or 4, no more than 2 years apart. Now, I have one who will be 5 by the time the second is born, and it still intimidates me. (And my husband has already called a friend of mine who works at a furniture store to get prices on a king sized bed because he has the same "We only have a queen" thought!)
