Mummy and baby no 2
Posted by: Sharmila Rajah, 27-Jun-2010
We’re in our 16th week now. Our baby is the size of an avocado, steadily growing along. Rapid growth is expected soon... in the next weeks.
I’m feeling better with nausea mostly absent.
I look forward to feeling the baby move….
CONGRATS on your baby no.2.how does it feel?how did u mentally prepare for your next one? my daughter is 2 & ppl around me are saying it's about time for no.2 but i dont feel i am ready for those late night feedings again......am enjoying my freedom very much now:)
Thank you for the kind wishes and comments.
I know what you mean when you say freedom - that's something I've had to wrestle with. After giving up breastfeeding just last June, I was a little reluctant to give up on my new found freedom.
Other factors too came into play, ie my age, Ayanna's age and so on.
So yes, I had to be sure I was completely ready both mentally and physically before I entered motherhood for a second time, which will mean juggling between Ayanna and the newborn. Not sure if I'm completely prepared for that (can anyone ever be?) so it's going to be quite a topsy turvy household come Dec. A happy chaos of sorts :)
