After my second child was born, i almost instantly was struck with this feeling of anxiety...that I had not been present enough during her pregnancy as i was with my first...that i had not captured the moments and had not taken enough pictures in the hospital....things like that. Maybe it is because this is likely my last and i am grieving that i won't ever go through pregnancy or childbirth or having a little baby ever again. The anxiety has gotten better as I'm sure my hormones have somewhat settled (im 6 months post partum ). But i still worry. I feel like she is growing so fast and time is flying and i still feel unable to really capture the moments and be present. I work full time and when im not working my attention is divided between my two kids...and the housework...and my husband (almost forgot about that...haha). It is hard. Anyone experience these feelings and have any advice? How do i stay present and capture the moments so that im not constantly feeling regret or worry?
