Of late, I’ve been thinking and day dreaming of having the second one. Yupp, u heard me. Another baby sister or brother for mia. I melted easily seeing a new born baby pictures & story, or reading other blogger’s first pregnancy experience and even felt excited upon knowing another blogger’s second pregnancy (who is btw one hawt-petite glowing mom).
I missed the smell of a newborn, the first kick and movement of the baby in my belly, the ‘everything i wish’ was granted by the hubby (food la mainly) and the journey into motherhood are just amazing (minus the 2 months of terrible morning sickness). Then of course, another push factor for me personally, to have another kid is knowing great maternity outfits in town (how kiasu is that), a better knowledge in breastfeeding (i miss this!) and the maternity leaves of course!!
But of course, I feel that way now, since i am surrounded with their lovely stories, and excitement, but I cringe at the thoughts of not having a good night sleep, the confinement period, the uncontrolable cries (can be coming frm both baby and me!), the ranging hormone and the post-partum depression. But, those little-little things that makes me…who i am today, grateful in a way im blessed to conceive mia w/o any medical probs (or delay, very fast too i would say!) , thankful for a loving and supporting hubby (he’s so gonna puke at it!i know!), more patients, more compromise, and in returns my life are more content. What more being a mommy myself, has open up my eyes understanding a mother’s role much much better.
SO, when’s is it? Well..not at the nearest time yet la, but seriously the idea is there. Of course, if Allah All Mighty were to blessed me with another baby soon, I’ll be happy nonetheless. Some say, better get over and done with pregnancy+kids, once they all grown up,and it’ll make your life easier, since body and mind still young, and the energy is still there.True. While the other party says, wait until the first one are much older, he/she can comprehend the idea of having another sibling, so that you’ll have undivided love & attentions for ’em, and won’t face the guilt of leaving the first born felt left out. True also. However, I personally believes everyone have their own says. My own mother has three of us, one after another yearly, until my last bro is seven years apart. She admitted, it was tiring and very challenging at that point of time, but.. soon learned, she was happy to see us all close, as the age gap and share the same generations era. Well, as for my last bro’, the manja one, he had all the attentions and luxuries unlike our time.
In today’s lifestyle, like ourself, I would much rather plan for the second time round. Have more stability financially, physically and mentally in good health as well. I hope, when the second one comes, i’ll be a much wiser mommy. For now, Mia dear, enjoy with your playdates first hokay honey!
“are you guys ready for another one??”
