Things to worry about the second time around

I’m not so concerned with having a BM this time.
In fact, this is the first I’ve thought about it. I
know it could have something to do with the fact
that I have scheduled section for June 30 (which
I feel pretty certain I won’t need). I am convinced
that Bug will arrive early.

I am concerned about having a section and then
coming home to Piper… How can I not hold her
when she says, “Up Mama”? Will I need to sleep
in a separate bed, since she still arrives in ours
at night?

Will I be a good Mama to two? Seriously, will Bug
get the attention that she deserves and will Piper
get the attention that she needs?

I am fracking terrified of taking a newborn and a
toddler to the grocery store. So terrified that I
haved vowed never to venture there alone. How
do women do it?

I am also somewhat worried about how this c-section
will go. I mean, I haven’t totally forgotten about how
“uncomfortable” I was during my last one… I’m not
freaking out too badly about it right now, but just
wait until they start wheeling me to the OR…..

Do you have to have a c-section?

Hi!!! I had all of these same worries too. But my second c-section was so much easier than my first. I ws up walking the 4 hours after my second one! Best wishes that everything will work out!!!

I worried pretty much about the same things…

Bub will fit in fine, you are a great Mum and have a happy adjusted little girl…
