What about No.2?

Hmm... Mummy really wonder whether it's common that less attention will be given to the following child compare to the eldest one?

Mummy went to visit gynea today with daddy (who's so eager to find out the gender of the baby), eveything is fine... baby is growing well. Throughout the whole scanning process, the little baby inside the womb just moving and turning non-stop. Super active compare to En En but too bad mummy still can't feel anything from the tummy. Maybe the abs fat is thick... LOL! We are so gald to see the baby is healthy and active even it's now officially turned 16 weeks. Well, daddy said maybe the baby is protesting since mummy seldom talk to the baby and care less compare to when preggie with En En. How not to feel guilty but having a toddler already like having bad hair days almost daily... really and seriously need to relax and calm myself to talk nicely to No.2. So unfair, huh?

I read from other expecting mummies' blog about their feeling or dilemma towards the baby inside the womb compare to the firstborn. Now, I really feel that I'm in the same boat too. Just feel the love is less and care is less... especially time for just the two of us! Seems so difficult to achieve this...

Mind to share with me how did you overcome this?

I guess it's oni natural that there's a difference. For the firstborn, u hv 100% attn for her. But the subsequent pregnancy, u hv a toddler to distract u. Maybe u can involve En En in the bonding process. So u can talk to bb while taking care of En En.

I actually spend more time with my 2nd one after she was born. However I tried my best to give equal attention to both.

Congrats, I just know of your no.2
So many mamas getting preggy again this year :D
Honestly we normally would feel guilty for the no.1 bcoz when no.2 arrive, no.1 would tend to be neglected :P But we parents would surely try our very best to be fair
