This Mother’s Day, Angel Soft has asked me to think about strength and softness in a series of sponsored posts. And it has been an easy topic for me because I am blessed to have my mother living with me and helping me raise my family. I shared how her strength inspires me and I’m even more thankful for her now because we will need all the extra hands we can get. I’m a mother to be… again!
Mother to Be… Again
It’s official! We are expecting baby #2 near the end of this year. We decided that the timing felt right to start trying and we were blessed to conceive quickly just as we did with W. So it made this Mother’s Day just a bit more special because I knew that our little family had already grown again.
Now I have a little less than 6 months to figure out how to be a mom to 2! It’s been a very different experience then my first pregnancy. I have been far more tired (no afternoon naps after work this time around) and I have been nauseous for about 2 months. With W, I had a funky taste in my mouth throughout most of the pregnancy but I only had a few bouts of nausea. We shall see what that might mean for us!
Being a mom has brought me such amazing joy. I never imagined how blessed I would feel. To know that I’m doing it all again is an amazing feeling. I cannot wait to experience my love for another child. My love for W is so powerful that I’ll admit I’m not sure how my heart will handle another little one. It’s definitely going to grow more than I ever imagined!
Although I know more of what to expect this time around, I can’t help but wonder how my two pregnancies will compare. So far they have gotten off to very different starts. And I also have a stream of questions that seems to keep my mind going.
- How will I handle a newborn and an almost 3-year old?
- Will I have two in diapers or will W be using the potty by November?
- How will W react to the new baby?
- Do I want to cloth diaper again?
- Will breastfeeding be more successful this time?
And on and on! But the best part is that I know everything will work out the way it should. We will figure it all out just as we did with W. I am a strong mother who can handle anything! But I am looking forward to those softer moments that are ahead. I cannot wait to have two little loves to cuddle on winter mornings!
Any mom words of advice to share?
