Preparing My Girl for Her Baby Brother

Ever since we found out we were pregnant, we've tried our best to involve her in the whole process. We brought her for my first ultrasound appointment where we saw the image of our baby boy for the first time and got her to feel her brother's first movements.

I know that she's excited for the arrival of a new baby and potential playmate but I can tell that she's also really nervous that she will no longer be my baby anymore! So she has been more clingy to me and trying to get my attention more than usual.

Just the other day, she started crying very suddenly in her preschool and told her teacher that she "missed my mummy very much!" Her teacher was very shocked as this was the first time in a long while that she had expressed that she wanted me. I suppose she is really afraid that I won't have time for her anymore..

Some of my friends think that I'm nuts! They wonder why I'm pushing myself every other week to bring my girl to every fun place that I can think of!

It's my way of finding joy in a situation when I'm not always in the best of moods (it's no secret that I really dislike being pregnant! Necessary evil unfortunately.. >.<)

I guess having a new sibling in the family is never easy, I would know, I'm the oldest sibling in my family myself. But we usually get over it and looking back, having siblings was the best thing ever!

I'm sure it would be the same for my girl =)
