I have a 4 year old girl & in January Im having a little boy. My daughter is used to children around because I have a nephew thats 2 1/2 & a step-son that 6. I explained to her she's going to be a big sister & she's ecstatic. She seems to understand it well & I gave her a baby doll & her & her step-brother say they are "practicing" for the baby's arrival. The only issue is I feel completely overwhelmed and like if I'm not going to be ready at all. This pregnancy I find out I have a bi-conarate uterus (like a heart shaped uterus) & that the only problem with this is if the baby is on the opposite side of where my daughter was I could not last all 40 weeks so they would have to monitor me. The biggest issue is I didn't know I had this with my first daughter & so we don't know what side is the "good" side. So I keep worrying the baby is going to come early & catch me off guard. & to make things a little worse I feel like its been so long I don't remember how to prepare for a baby. I can't relax at all. I feel like I need to have the baby shower planned & start buying baby stuff or at least dressers to put away the stuff I am going to get at the baby shower. & the problem is I feel like I still haven't done enough & I am not prepared. Any advise?
