Consulting Moms

I’m 4 days late and feel super nauseous. Reckon I’m pregnant (test comes tomorrow so I can check). This will be baby no. 2 for us and I confess all I feel is impending dread about the next 12 months. Not looking for advice just to vent!

Ugh everything. Would be due in Jan, peak flu season, so high risk of a second peak of ‘rona. What does that mean for the medical care? And then beyond that - interference with life plans, moving house. And the day to day mechanics of wrangling a preschooler and a newborn. Money as I’m the sole earner. We defo wanted a second but had planned to wait another six months to sort out our housing situation. This just feels like an ‘oh god I can’t even deal right now’.

I'm 18 weeks with our second and still have mixed feelings. We talked about possibly having another one at some point, but definitely didn't want our first to be less than 2 before adding another to our pack. I just keep telling myself that it'll be a rough couple of years but we will get through it and find our groove once the baby is here!

We want to get pregnant, ideally end of this year, but all the Rona has caused us to rethink. When do you ladies think a better timeframe would be?
