Alexander's foot

Baby Nerves…

I sit and wonder what he’ll look like and who he’ll be.

The anticipation consumes me. Excited. Anxious. I cannot wait.

I’ve never been a mum of two and worry what’s to come.

Have I enough love to give, how will I cope?

Soon he’ll be here and then there’ll be four.

Our lives irrevocably changed forever more.

That day is nearly here… and the nerves have set in.

    As someone who’s been through this very recently I know exactly how you’re feeling lovely and it’s so natural. It’s amazing how, as soon as he is born, your heart will just grow. I always thought how I would divide my love between my two children but I didn’t have to – my heart grew double to accommodate TC. I really can’t wait to hear your news xx

    Aw thats lovely hun. You know I still wonder how I will cope as Youngling grows and we face new challenges every day. I think you are a fab mum to O so bubba#2 should be a breeze 😉 I am here to help with babysitting 😉 xx

    Just before Riley arrived Dave had a mini meltdown, he couldn’t get his head around having the same amount of love for her as Megan; even though we had nearly 9 months to get used to the idea. He was also scared that Megan would feel left out. As soon as she arrived all that uncertainty left, it really is amazing how engulfed with love you feel for both of them. Whenever i’m asked which is my favourite I honestly wouldn’t be able to say as they are both amazing little girls with their own personalities/traits. I have one very quite/arty one and the other is so boisterous and fearful of nothing. Some say double trouble but I say twice the fun. Hope you are getting plenty of rest x

    You are all heart, Vicki, so never doubt you can love 2… and counting! 😉 There’s a saying I adore ‘love doesn’t divide, it multiplies’ and it’s absolutely true. So excited for you x

    Wow, beautifully written and straight from the heart. I’m sure, though, you will be fine and the experience will be incredible 😉 x

    I spent most of the morning on the day before my induction in tears thinking how it was the last day Id spend with just Leo and worrying about this unknown person who was about to join us. But he arrived and obviously I love him loads!

    You will be fine – you will be tired, confused and probably lose the plot a little but it;s all good – honest! 🙂

    I find it amazing, when looking at parents of two, seeing that their love really does expand. It’s hard to imagine when used to loving one so much. Hope you’re getting rest in this last stretch!
