CALL IN THE CAVALRY sorry to shout but please address this sooner than later.

First, have you told DH this is how you are feeling? does he pull his weight, ie .cook a meal/ have a hands-on approach to DD1 with routine?

Secondly, alert your midwife and GP.

Thirdly, any approachable family, in-laws, friends to help out with you and DD1; playdate, housework, shopping.

It is strong not weak to reach out and ask for help when we struggle. Keep posting here Suffolk take care x

Very glad DH is dependable, I honestly don't think any loved ones will think less of you for saying you are finding things tough. Try not to think of extra help as 'palming DD off' on anyone. It is probably very good for DD1 to spend time with the extended family, after all she may well relish still being close to them when DD2 arrives. I am guessing at her age she may not even know about you expecting again, if she does she won't associate having a lovely time with Grandpa or whoever with mummy prioritising her sibling.

Oh okay then, well there might be some subterfuge required but try to focus on your needs as being as vital as her contentment. With DH and family supporting you things will seem more straightforward. This isn't about letting anyone down, it is serious and it is bad fortune it is recurring but the last thing you need is any additional guilt trip.
