Oh my gosh, I’m still shaking! I tested last night and this morning, 2 BFP’s!
DH and I were sort of NTNT but really wanted to start full on TTC in about 2 months. I’m feeling so many different emotions, first I was so excited, then I was shocked, then scared, stressed, then I cried for about an hour last night. DH is so incredibly happy.
This is our 2nd child. Our first is 2 1/2 and I realized last night, I’m really worried with how he will take this. He’s been my everything and I’ve been his for over 2 years + the pregnancy with him…I really don’t want him to feel less loved. How can I love anyone as much as I love my first? I know it’s possible and I’ll probably feel better after talking to my friends with 2 or more little one’s.
Whew but over all I’m excited. I’m probably around 3-4 weeks along 🙂 EEEK!!!
And symptoms started last Friday (I tested then, got a negative) but mostly just extremely sore “fun bags” haha. Last night, I was nauseous but probably from excitement.

@Heatherloveskenny: Congratulations! How exciting.
I’m sure your son will not feel any less loved – I LOVED having my little brother come along, seriously. I was never one of the pouty, jealous kids you hear about. And I’m now the oldest of FOUR so trust me on that. 😉

@AmeliaBedelia: haha oh gosh, that’s my fear – the pouty jealous one! Thanks for the reassurance 🙂 I definitely need it right now!

I have younger siblings, born when I was almost two (don’t remember but my mom says I had no problems). At four I was excited.

Congrats! I’m the oldest of four and I never felt like my mom’s love for any of us was sacrificed because there was more than one of us. A friend of mine, who recently had her 2nd baby, said she never knew her love could multiply so much! I think as long as you talk with the older sibling and make them excited too, there is going to be nothing but love!

@Heatherloveskenny: Congratulations!! What a great story… and yay for another Junebug… when’s your due date (you think)?

Congrats!!! I’m an only child but as long as I can remember I always wanted a baby brother or sister, even when I was really young. So he might be really excited about it too 🙂

Congratulations! I’m sure once the news starts to settle and you’re able to plan for the transition, it will just feel like even more love to go around.

Thanks! I tried explaining to my little guy a little bit this morning and he likes babies in general. I just hope it’s not any different when he has one living with him lol.

@Heatherloveskenny: I haven’t had to do it yet but I think it is important to keep your child involved. Don’t let him feel like he is being replaced or left out. Keep trying to explain to him in simple ways that there is a baby coming and he gets to be a big brother. Maybe show him examples of big brothers. Congratulations and good luck 🙂

@cyndistar3: that’s a good idea, a friend of mine has a newborn and her other son is 3 1/2 so I might just have to hang around them more often so DS can get the feel for it. Thanks! And good luck to you too – I read that you’re trying for your second child as well!
