our coming boy
I am having a baby and I am scared.
I have 3 little girls already and never have I experienced such a great amount of anxiety.
So today I am turning to you my fellow sisters in blog land for your grains of advice.
So far I haven't found a book for mothers expecting there 4th baby just ones for the 1st and maybe a second. I have more worries this time around. How will I keep up with a newborn and the still make life for my other children and their needs?my hubby reading to my youngest girlMy other fears I recognize as a result of a having a miscarriage prior to this conception.
Will everything go well for this little boy? Will I carry him properly full term? Every day I count his little rolls and nudges to make sure he's alive down there. I never was this crazy with my baby girls. Yikes somedays I feel tremendously frightened that I will never meet him.
Then here is yet another fear.
He is a boy and I have never had a boy before! Will he be different do I need anything special to take care of boys? I know I am in need of boy clothes but is that all? Do I need to teach him differently than a girl? I know I am a bit neurotic here.

I come from a family of 9 children I loved the unity and happy chaos of my life growing up with a big family. I have to give my mother a shout out because she really made it look so easy every time she had a baby. Being that I was baby #1 I remember nearly every time mom brought home a new baby. I only missed my sister #9 because I wasn't at home, being 22 years old and a missionary for my church. So how come I can't seem to get any comfort from her experiences right now? I suppose because it is a very different world today....me and my sisters
So Moma's spill forth your wisdom!
Especially if you have many kiddos. Plus tips from mommy's who have lots of girls and then a boy would be fabulous. Even advice from a mom who was scared of losing a baby into the the 6th month?
Thank you Thank you!!!
