Im currently a month of a gorgeous little 17 month old girl. Shes my world and i love her to bits.
Ive recently found out that i am pregnant again (not sure when due yet as still need to see dr). While it is happy news and ive always wanted another baby, i am overwhelmed with guilt.
I feel so guilty for having another baby and knowing that my daughter is going to have to share my time and attention with her new brother/sister when they are born. I also worry that its not possible to love another baby as much as i love my little girl.
I also fear that my feeling towards my daughter might change when the new baby is born.
Im just constantly crying on and off cause of this emense guilt i feel. Is this normal or am i very wierd. It should be a happy time and would be even more so if i wasnt carrying these feeling about with me.
Has anyone else felt this way before and if yes how did you deal with it and cope? Any help and advice i would really appreciate.
Thank you for listening xxx
