Mommy Guilt

Now that I'm nearing the end of my pregnancy, I have been overwhelmed lately with an extreme amount of mommy guilt over how much Grace's world is about to change. For close to 2 years, I have stayed at home with her and given her nearly all of my attention. She is a classic mommy's girl and is pretty clingy for a toddler her age. She still sucks on my finger for comfort, yes I know, that's bad but I have yet to figure out how to stop it. She is still horrible about napping and often ends up asleep on me. We still bring her to bed in the mornings with us. She's pretty attached!

And in a week or so, her life is going to be completely turned upside down. She's too young for me to really prepare her for it. I just keep telling myself that she won't remember any of this and in a few weeks it will be our new normal.

Moms of 2 or more, please reassure me that this feeling is totally normal. Things will be ok, right?

She will always be my first baby.

  1. While I am not pregnant but even thinking about the possibility of getting pregnant and having another child gives me mommy guilt. I blogged about it recently and a lot of people have told me that we shouldn't have guilt. We are giving our first born a sibling, best friend, partner in crime etc. It's a great gift. Try to think of it that way! Good luck

  2. Perfectly normal to have the guilt, but it goes away once they start interacting. You'll find a balance and make it all work.

  3. I had my son almost 3 weeks ago and the day I went in to be induced I completely broke down about this. My daughter is still adjusting but I know now that it will be ok. Your daughter will be ok, I promise.
