Hi ladies,
I'm after some advice, we have our second bambino on the way. We already have a beautiful 18mth old daughter and we tried for years for our amazing little lady 💜 this pregnancy was a shock, an amazing surprise but it feels so different. I hate to even admit this but I am scared that our first child will miss out on time with us when the little one arrives. We are happy and feel beyond blessed we really do, it's just a niggling feeling of almost guilt!?! Please help I feel so confused 😐 xx

I think that what you are feeling is perfectly normal and most parents feel it. After a short while you'll probably find a rhthym that suits you and you'll get some time with DD.

One thing that helped me was a stretchy wrap, it freed up my hands so I could play with DC1 and do things like cook.

Thank you!
It's so reassuring to know I'm not alone in this feeling 😬 I love that idea and will definitely try it.
New to Mumsnet and already loving it. Thank you x
