Ten Vignettes For People Attempting a Second Child

The lovely people at www.glowing.com asked if I would write a guest blog for them this week.

Since they deal with women who are trying to get pregnant they asked if I could write one about how hard it is to try for a second child when you already have a first child.  And I said I would love to as long as I could make the disclaimer that I am writing this as someone who is not currently trying for a second child because, dear God, I have just one child and already most of my plants are dead and I’m only brushing my hair once every three days.

But for those of you ready to jump into the fray, here are:

  1. It took us 3 YEARS to get preggers with our middle child (some one else carried and gave birth to our oldest, then I took her.) When we decided we want to get preggers a 3nd time we thought we’d best start early. It took us 3 SECONDS! Surprise! I wasn’t even ready for it either.

  2. Reblogged this on Everything beautiful and happy..

  3. As a parent to one (trying for #2 – mostly because it feels like the right thing to do at this point in my life) I found this to be hilarious. Story of my life. (This post – not the One Direction song). Great post!!!
