And the sucky thing is that no one talks about how it hits your marriage. If you are even considering a second child, I strongly suggest you and your hubby take a good look at your marriage and decide if it can take another kid. DD#2 nearly did us in…But amazingly the smoke starts to clear and you remember that there is another human in the room you chose to marry. (which lead to DD#3!)
It just takes a helluva lot of time to adjust and realize you are a skin full of emotions (both good and bad) and that he is too.
