40 weeks today and having a bit of an emotional breakdown!

my rational brain knows it is silly but my heavily pregnant, hormonal brain is having a bit of an emotional time..
Though I am so looking forward to new baby's arrival, I keep having this wobble about not spending enough time with DS who is almost two. And how I love our little family unit and how a new baby is going to totally change everything, and how is DS going to feel etc... part of me is so ready for new baby and part of me just wants it to stay in for a while longer so I can spend all my time with DS.
Just a vent really.. I'm sure it will all be fine, I guess it's just knowing that the new arrival will be any day now, it's all very real.
Tell me I'm not the only one who feels like this?!!!

I've felt like that with each of mine. As well as that random middle of night 'what the fuck am I doing' thought when having a wee. They sleep a lot between feeds for the 1st 6 weeks or so though so you'll still have plenty of time for your ds. I've always read stories to my older ones while feeding the baby just as a special quiet time.

I'm having a wobble today too. You'll be absolutely fine and the baby will change your family in a positive way!
Hopefully you won't be sat around waiting for much longer. Good luck with it! Flowers

Bernard... Oh I love the 'what the fuck am I doing' mid wee moments, they're a nightly occurrence for me as look around our building site, wondering how the hell DP is confident it will all be sorted in time! Confused
