Please share your stories when falling pregnant with c#2 & how you felt...

I have my darling 10month old girl, dp and i would love another next year, not using contraception. i am breast feeding so that may prolong things? but i just dont want to feel like im 'cheating' my daughter of all the attention. we have always wanted a big family, and i think she would love it as she is very playful and sociable.

I dont want her to feel like the potential new baby will take her shine away from her, and her milk (mummys milksmile )

this may sound daft, but how did you feel loving another person as much as you love your DC1 (the apple of your eye until you need to share that love with your newborn.)

I have a big heart, i will love all of my future children, I just wonder how it feels learning to love more and more with the more children you have smile

I never thought it would be possible to love DC2 as much as I loved DC1 but it really is. It's not like you share the same amount of love arond between more DCs you just have more love to give.

I am expecting number two and DS1 is now 2 and a lovely happy little boy who I love dearly. I am worried about sharing myself with another baby and not giving them enough solo time each but I am sure it will work out after all thousands of women have done it before me and thousands after.
