Well my first baby I was a single working mom. I got a break and had help, and my daughter was amazing. She was so smart and good! I was lucky. My second baby I was married and a sahm, we opened a restaurant a few weeks after her birth. She was colicky, jaundice had horrible diaper rashes all the time it was insane. She pooped every hr lol. Then I was trying to help my husband with school and financing for the business and with a toddler and new born I was like OMG. My house was a mess, I was alone. It was hard to adjust to being a sahm. U have to be patient, take breaks and breathe. I pray that my son is easier but my daughter is so high maintenance and hyper I am used to it now anyways. But they do stress me out. I.sometimes feel like the one mom in the world who.can't manage my children properly but then ill see or talk to friends and be like ok its hard for most woman lol. I'm not some super hero mom but I do my best.

1-2 kids was easy to transition to. 2-3 not so sure yet. Esp w 5 of us in this itty bitty house I can only imagine. Dd2 had colic too! Ugh I've been hoping this baby don't bc that was terrible to go through. That n bfing are my fears. I've never made enough to do it for a yr like I wanted to.



So dd1&2 fell asleep at 9pm. Dd2 woke up at 11pm and after a few quiet time outs she settled down in record time and we all got 7-8 hrs of sleep whoohoo!!!



Good luck at the scan today! Mine is tomorrow gotta leave by 8am to get there by 10am their time. So excited to see Aaron again! I still haven't watched his gender scan DVD lol

Ethan was extremely colicy and difficult so I had a hard time and I'm really hoping this baby will be easier. Especially since Ethan is in his "really terrible twos" right now lol

This baby will be my first, and I just want to make it through the pregnancy right now. There seem to be so many issues and i'm considered high risk, so I'm struggling with the idea that everything will be okay. I keep freaking out over every little ache, and if I were a cartoon, little nail bits would be flying from me biting my fingers being a nervous wreck.



Good luck to all the scans and upcoming reveals. :)
