I am currently 17 weeks and 4 days pregnant which means that this baby is due to arrive about a week or two before Christmas.
Being the second born, the hubby and I are no longer as wide-eyed with excitement as we were with our first. Yes, there is still joy with the thought of having another tiny human to cuddle and love once again, but this joy is tempered with the thought that we are now responsible for two human beings, thus, we have to get our shit together.
Getting ready for baby number 2 means: (a) preparing my body for the birth; (b) preparing for the actual birth; and (c) preparing post-birth.
As a second-time mom, I know that I can only really prepare for a & b, while c just means going with the flow and dealing with things on a day to day basis.
