The 2nd/3rd/4th/5th+ time around thread!
Thought this would be a good thread- not only for those of us who are already mummies but also for the 1st timers to get info from.
Just wondered what the already mummies are looking forward to this time around...
So, what are you most looking forward to about ttc/being pregnant/having a baby again?
What are you most worried about this time?
For me, I am dubious about ttc because my cycles are irregular and its so easy to get stressed by it. I'd love to take the relaxed approach and not use any opks etc but with an irregular cycle I think that would just lead to more stress. Of course I am looking forward to getting my BFP (PMA PMA).
Being pregnant I am looking forward to the anticipation of each scan and appointment- scans are wonderful and there's nothing like the feeling afterwards when you come out with your pic of your little baby. I am also looking forward to the time I will hopefully get to spend with the baby in hopsital once it's born...I know thats weird, but because I will most likely be having a section (had 2 previously) I will be in hopsital a few days and although its hard and I know I will miss my kids it will be my chance to bond with number 3 before he/she joins her/his brother and sister. I am also obviously looking forward to when we are all together when we come home, and we will hopefully be a completed family.
Also looking forward to seeing my dh with the baby- I have lovely memories of him first holding both of mine when they were so teeny. Its a tradition the first time he comes and visits us he buys a little present to the baby just from him. He brought my son a little teddy bear wearing an england shirt and my daughter a little cuddly dumbo.
Worries- I am worried about repeating my previous pregnancy problems- which are high blood pressure and SPD (pelvic problems). All I can really do is try and eliminate them as best I can by keeping as healthy as poss. I'm also worried because I had post natal depression and I am worried about all the hormones, postnatally and during pregnancy. Again, all I can do is get all the support possible and hope for the best!
