That being said your struggles ttc doesn't make someone else's struggles with parenting any less valid or any less painful.
Parenting is hard. There is absolutely no way you can "know what your up for" when trying to fall pregnant. Having a child changes your life in ways you can not imagine. I don't mean to be insensitive but not having any kids... You don't have the background knowledge or right to flip off a mums parenting struggles like that.
Sorry but you come across as bitter at the world. Open your heart to other mums and it may help you through your struggles ttc.
Toddlers are hard work, and the need attention all the time! I mean all the time.
Your son is probably put out by his sister as well.
I find if I play with my kids or take them out, they are happy to play on their own for a bit.
Chances I'm pretty mad at what you said, but putting that aside for a moment- if this is how you feel I can see you finding early motherhood very very difficult. When that time comes I hope you aren't too ashamed to reach out for help. A good friend of mine struggled with ttc, she ended up with pnd because she honestly had no idea it would be so hard. That coupled with the guilt she felt because she thought she should be grateful pushed her over the edge.
