Im feeling really overwhelmed about having a 2nd kid i have one daughter now shes 2 and im 38 weeks pregnant with a boy i feel like i will be putting my daughter aside. and that i won't have enough attention and love for both....is this normal to feel like that with having a 2nd kid ??? my boyfriend is really excited and just tells me it will be okay but i can't stop thinking about it.

I remembering worrying that I loved my oldest daughter so much that I wouldn't love another the same, you soon stop feeling like this once you have another baby. I have 3 daughters now and love them all the same, they need different things from me as they are aged 13, 4 and nearly 2 but as for love it is the same for all of them. Babies do take a lot of attention but inculd your daughter in helping out also make sure you do the little things with her whilst dad watches baby, have fun in the bath, read the bedtime stories, say babies sleeping let's have some cuddle time whilst you can. I agree with your boyfriend, good luck :)
