I don't think I'm ready for #2 *Bri's Mommy :) 1 child; California 2662 posts

I'm 20 years old, I have a 2 year old and I'm about 5wks pregnant. I'm not too sure how I feel. I of course would love to give my daughter a sibling and I would love to have another also. The worries I have are that I work, my babysitter now wants to start traveling after my LO starts school. So who do I even have to watch a newborn that I trust, will be able to afford preschool and daycare for 2 children, our work is not promised, we work in real estate so it's up and down. I feel like my SO has such a short temper as well that it worries me.. My daughter really needs a lot of attention so what if she wants me and I can't give her all of the attention... Im also not even finnished with college, i planned on switching from jr to state college..There's so many things going through my head.

That's what my SO keeps saying, that it happened fr a reason and we are much better off now than when we were pregnant with our first. It's just scary and I wish I was better prepared.

Whatever you decide to do, it will all work out.
I has the same thoughts as you and almost didnt have my #2. She's 2 now and the funniest (and stroppiest!) kid I know I love her so much and couldn't imagine life without her.
If you're only 5 weeks I'm assuming you haven't known for very long. Give it's a few more weeks to set in so you can think straight and plan where to go from Here.



So much can change in this next 9montjs, your daughter may become more independent and she comes closer to 3.
My daughter was 2 in December so she's becoming more independent and less needy. She can sit and colour or look at books with out needing me to be there with her.

And to be honest... I'm 31 weeks and still kinda pissed I'm pregnant. I'm going to love her regardless, but did NOT want this now. So know you're not alone. But like Kenzi, abortion's never been an option in my mind. Though my husband is getting fixed as soon as she's born so this shit doesn't happen again lol
