I'm happily married and my son is wonderful, we wanted a second child close in age and were planning on getting pregnant in the fall. We got pregnant last moneht and I'm feeling kinda crummy all around.
I'm Sick a random parts of the day, well up in tears over the smallest thing, I'm sharply irritable at unexpected moments, plus all I can think about it the largeness coming, how awkward it will be while taking care of Owen, plus then getting the baby out and then balancing the kids.
I need a major attitude adjustment but I'm just letting myself be grumpy for now.
So far when anyone says Congrats I think they're kidding. Or if they're like 'oooo so exciting!' I kind of shudder.
I feel so terrible for not being as excited as the first time, I don't want my second chlid to feel unloved an neglected already!
Does anyone else feel this way? Or have any encouraging words to help me think of all the wonderful times that are to come?
