Hi guys, just popping in to say hi. I am due August 7th after two miscarriages so my husband is very excited.<br><br>
I have one three year old whom I stay home with and am semi-excited to have another one. It just looks very hard to me, the whole having two kids thing. Especially since my first was the easiest baby I can imagine and everyone and their mother who knew her as an infant loves to say that karma is coming to get me and I am going to have a baby who crys for the first six months straight.<br><br>
Obviously I know I will love the baby when it comes out, but it is hard to imagine doing it all over again since life was just starting to get easier.

Maybe the fact that life is just starting to get easier means that this is the perfect time for a new little one in your family?

Thanks I hope so - that's a great way to look at it.

Hi LolaK! congrats on the preg! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Just wanted to comment on your username, my DD's name is Lola, is that your name or just a nickname? Don't actually get to meet very many Lola's just a lot of fans of the name, I think it is the pop culture that surrounds it that makes it such a lovable one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Welcome! I found going from 0 to 1 the hardest - 1 to 2 was so easy for me. My boys are 4 years apart though, and I really think that helped b/c Keith was so helpful when Henry was a baby. You'll do fine!

Welcome! I agree with a previous poster. Going from 0-1 is a huge change. Going from 1-2 isn't big. . . and then from 2-3 is huge again (at least it was for me when we had foster kids). I'm kind of scared about having 3, since it was so hard with foster kids. But everything is different with your own kids.<br><br>
I hope this pregnancy is uneventful and that you have a second very easy baby.

Thanks for the welcome, and thanks for the words of encouragement. I don't know why I am being so whimpy about this, I was much braver with the first (I kind of thought, "how much can one baby disrupt life" - hahahahahaha).
