38+2 with second baby, luckily pregnancy has gone relatively smoothly compared with some so I can't complain, but I do feel so guilty that I can't do much with my 3 year old, even setting up her craft stuff and clearing them away again is exhausting. No family nearby but thank goodness for a few good friends keeping me sane!
Sympathies and good luck wishes to all those mummies to be and those already battling their ways through the endless days and nights of early parenthood.
Whilst I can say I'm frustrated at how exhausted I am at the moment, I feel so much more at ease having done it once before, I know it will be harder still when bump is outside, but I also know it will slowly get easier for the most part. My body will be mine again in time, I will know sleep again one day, and at some far off point in time I will get moments to myself and sport a handbag again instead of a changing bag!
Thanks for reading, I feel a bit more upbeat about the day ahead now I've found some positive thoughts, and I hope a bit of light at the end of the tunnel helps others too.x
