A while ago we were talking about when we were all going to begin trying for another, has anyone's thoughts about that changed?
We wanted ours to be close too but after 5 failed attempts we are now happy for the gap. However in saying that we will be putting our two frozen embies back early next year. Really hoping for a girl.
Broom if ya not sure don't stress. Just take some time out and keep enjoying beautiful Verity ( I love that name) and talk about it in 6 months or so.

I'm having a really down day girls. I have a super good baby - nothing like my first baby so I really can't complain but I'm having real problems with DD1. My DD1 is almost 4 and proving to be a real challenge and its breaking my heart. I feel like I have lost my DD1. It's an unimaginable grief I can't explain. My little girl has gone. It seems she's never going to come back. The tantrums , screams, bad behaviour and endless bad behaviour is killing me. I can't get her to go to sleep before 10pm since the new baby arrived, she jumps and clambers all over me whilst I'm feeding (despite having a breast feeding box which has new toys in for her to play it while I'm feeding), she refuses to do anything I ask her to d. I've instigated a rewards chart with stickers and that's not working. I'm exhausted from my DD1 not the baby. I don't know what to do, and the hardest part is the grief as I feel like I've lost my daughter. Where has my little girl gone.? Everyone says that a bigger age gap is better as they are more independent but I think it's harder. My DD1 refuses to go to prchoool, cries and screams all the way to preschool, tantrums adm she screams so loudly and with such anger and terror that I just cry. It absolutely breaks my heart. What have I done? We tried so hard to have this baby but in doing so I've lost my first child.... I'm resorting to putting her in her room all the time. I try to reward the good behaviour and not the bad, but I feel like I need jo frost super nanny. I'm really surprised that no ne has called docs my DD1 screams so much.
If there's another mum out here with to been their second child please give me some tips.....I'm so upset and grief stricken.....
