Hi! I'm Sarah and i'm goint to be a second time mum. My first was 9hrs and 5 min, text book and straight forward. I'm hoping for about 5hrs this time lol! I was trying to find out what i was afraid of this time. Hmm...yes labour hurt, but thats a given, pushing was ok...no not worried about that...baby comming out...easiest part...what is my problem? Not having my two year old with me! It's going to be great to have time to myself, not to have too cook and clean and run arould after her, but when night comes, it's going to be hard for me as i always say goodnight and take her to her bed. She'll be fine, just not sure about me. It's probably just theses millions of hormones running around lol.What are you worried about?

I'm really worried about how my son will act. He's so used to being the center of attention, that I don't know how he's going to react when, all of a sudden, they show up and everybody is paying attention to this "new thing". I'm due on his 3rd birthday, too! I don't know what I'm going to do if I am not there for his birthday!!!

Sarah im the exact same way. I have BF my daughther for a long time despite what i want but its what she wants and because of that my two year old has not spent one night away from me EVER!!!!! Im so scared to leave her and so scared for her to come see me and im going to have her brother. I have already went out and boughten and wrapped a gift for her to open when she visits me so she feels special too but im so worried about taking any time away from her.

Yes, it's another girl. Her pregnancy was so different to Chloe's that i was sure she was a boy lol! She is alot smaller than Chloe was and i got all the preg syptoms. I had it so easy with Chloe, no symptoms except getting bigger lol! I'm even having braxton and Hicks with this one. Hope everything goes smoothly. We have picked the name Evelyn Rose for baby and if it turns out to be a boy, James William. What about you? Wow, i think a long labour would frustrate me! I hope your labour is shorter this time :)

contractions started about 10 mins apart but wernt too painfull to start with. started at 4pm and didnt get admited to hospital until 9am the next day... then sat out the rest of the long ride at hospital.

her nan knows her bed/bottle/food time roughly but she goes a bit soft on her and lets her do what she wants a bit too much. but shes her 1st grandchild so i can understand why lol. aww due only 10 days before me :)

hope the rest of your pregnancy flys by and goes smoothly. do you know what the sex is or is baby a suprise?

Chloe is going to be about 2 and 4 months when this one comes. She is due 18th May :) i was worrying about thise things too cause we follow a routine too, but i figure it's all going to have to readjust when i get home anyway. Does nan know her routine? I'm going to miss my little girl so much! Ouch long labour! How far apart did your contractions start? I started 7 min apart. Not much of a lead up! :)

thats a good time for a 1st labour...my 1st was 37 1/2 hours lol. im due may 28th with my second. only 20 days after my daughters 1st birthday, so shes still going to be a baby herself when i give birth to her sister. like you im not to botherd about the birth...i meen its gunna happen if you like it or not :P. im just a little worried about how my daughter will be with me gone for 1-3 days and how much ill miss her! i miss her tons if shes at her nans for the night so i have no idea how ill cope if i have to stay in hospital for a few days lol. And im a little worried about how her routine will get messed up. she likes to have her set times for feeding and bed and if it changes she gets a little thrown off and wont eat properly and her sleep can get broken. i know that will get easly fixed when i get home but it might get a little confusing for her.
