Hi ladies. Was hoping for some advice. I just got back from the doctors and found out I'm 5 weeks pregnant with #2. My first child, my son, is only 6 months old.it was a total shock as I was on the pill.
I did struggle for the first 4 months with my son and I have no support and do it on my own. Hubby works 8-8 and I still have days where I'm exhausted with my son.
I also happen to have hard pregnancies due to a previous back injury where I ended up in emergency 3 times during my first due to my back "locking" and couldn't move for a week. I can't imagine this happening while I still need to care for my son. When I reached 8 months I could only get up 5 minutes at a time then rest cause of my back.
I don't know how to handle the news. I have mixed emotions but I guess I feel more sad. How will I care for my son with my history? How will I handle this on my own? How will I care for 2 little babies?
I was hoping to hear your experiences when you fell pregnant again soon after bub #1
