In a nutshell, I am very sad and depressed over having another child. The bad part is that I planned this child and tried to get pg for months. I have the most precious 3 1/2 yr. old daughter I could ever ask for and I am due with a boy in like two months. I am so sad that my daughter won't have my full attention anymore and it won't just be me and her anymore. I am used to spoiling her with anything she wants and now the money won't be there to do that. I am married and work full time and she goes to daycare. But since she was born I have pretty much been a single mom because my husband works all the time, I mean he is never home. And I cannot believe I just added more work for me to do. I feel like my daughter is going to suffer with this other child in our home. I am too upset over having to deal with a boy because I only have sisters, nieces and my daughter. I feel my daughter is going to hate having a brother and be upset over not having a sister to play with. I thought things would be okay since most people I know have two or even three kids, but now I am struck with regret over getting pg, because I don't think I will be able to adjust and neither will my daughter. Has anyone else ever felt like this or am I just all alone?
