After the birth of my daughter I experienced postpartum anxiety. I didn’t realize this until one day when I just snapped out of it. I could instantly see clear again. As bazaar as the whole experience was, I hear it’s quite common. Especially in mothers who have experienced a loss.
I didn’t think I would be able to have another full term pregnancy. I grew up with a brother and sister. I began to feel overwhelmed by having an only child. I didn’t know much about that. So naturally, I was researched parenting an only child. My daughter was 9 months old when I found out I was pregnant, again! We were elated to say the least! When I was pregnant the second time the excitement was amplified. Not only was I beyond excited to have another baby, I was ecstatic about my daughter gaining a sibling. A lifelong friend.
We added a pumpkin to our patch!
