3 Things ALL Expectant Mothers Should Know
'Having more than one child' is the final part in my comical three part truth bomb series about what expectant mothers should know. If you missed the first two parts you can find them here:
Having More Than One Child
#1) Extra job roles
When I was pregnant with my second child I began to wonder how I could love it as much as I love my first. Well when she was born I realised my love grew rather than got shared out. This worry was far from my mind when I had my third and fourth children, I knew I love them all equally.
What I wasn't prepared for was the new roles than came with having more children...
#2) You become blasé
As a new mum you are likely to worry about EVERYTHING. Even those of you who are strong willed and do things your way (the exact type of mum I am) you will still worry.
With your first born you change their nappy every single time they have done a wee. With your second born you change it when you smell it. With the third or more you change it when you notice the nappy swinging down by your child's knees!
Ok this might not be exclusive to having more than one child but it is certainly something that grows when you have more children. In fact it grows to a point where you almost (definitely) become paranoid about silence.
Even if you have managed to find someone who is willing to look after your terrors so you can have a few hours peace, when the house falls silent you still feel a sense of panic, despite knowing they are not there!
There has it. That's the end on my three part truth bomb series about what all expectant mothers should know.
