View Full Version : The two week countdown
I have officially two weeks until my due date :smiliedance: I'm experiencing alot more pain this time around than I did with my first pregnancy.
It's not uncommon for me to lose coordination of my legs from the hip down at any given moment, which doesn't look to elegant while i'm out shopping or when I stand up to walk and almost fall face first on the tiles. DH gets a giggle out of how I walk with a full leg cramp, but it really hurts!
I'm a little nervous about how Ryan is going to react when the new baby comes home, any advice out there on how to cope with this, I know that jealousy in the beginning might be an issue but hopefully it won't last long :fingerscrossed:
Thanks in advance for any advice
I dont have any advice as I will be going through the same thing as you with my second bubba due in 2 months. But i just want to wish you luck :fingerscrossed: not long now!!!!
Good Luck to you too!
If I find a cure to leg cramps and sibling jealousy i'll pass it on, lol.
Okay great :smiliedance: sounds like a deal :D :D
I dont have any ideas on the leg cramps or sibling rivalry Leonie, but I do want to wish you luck and hope everything goes smoothly for you :kiss:
How exciting :smiliedance:
Beth, Daniel and Wyatt.
legs cramps suck!good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!
take it easy and keep us updated!:kiss:
The best thing you can do is..while bubba is sleeping get in sometime with Ryan..otherwise he will feel neglected(sp?)
Did you still need the cot??
Good luck hun:hugs: :smiliedance:
First DS didn't react that badly when I brought bubs home - there was 20 months between them and I think that if they are under two they don't really understand what has happened - don't get me wrong - DS1 will try and get a leg or hand in at some point or another - but they don't seem to react that badly.
Ensure when people come round to met bubs that they all make a fuss of your first child - BEFORE bubs - a lot of my friends and family bought Owen presents as well and he got them first. Baby2 learns to fit in as you tend to let them cry to tend to eldest needs first.
Wish you the very best of luck - yes the pains are far more intense the second time round - you think there is no way you can mistake the onset of labour as you have been through it before but your pains are more intense that you are never sure of what is going on.
If you have any questions PM me as I have been through the two young children bit - still going through it - 2 yrs 4mths and 8 mths - ahhhhhhhhhh :banghead: (just kidding;) )
good luck :D
I remember the big countdown - and then I was ten days overdue! But bub was worth the wait. All the best and enjoy your new little one!
