SE­COND TIME AROUND

Your Pregnancy - - Letters -

I’m 19 weeks preg­nant with our se­cond baby. My cur­rent preg­nancy has been very dif­fer­ent to the preg­nancy with our first child. I have been a lot more anx­ious this time. My hus­band and I an­nounced the preg­nancy with our first baby early on and I felt much more re­laxed and at ease. But this time we waited much longer be­fore mak­ing our spe­cial news pub­lic. At times I’ve felt com­pletely over­whelmed. I re­ceived the De­cem­ber & Jan­uary is­sue of Your Preg­nancy mag­a­zine as part of a gift from a fel­low preg­nant friend. Read­ing it has re­as­sured me, re­laxed me and made me feel less anx­ious and more ex­cited. I was re­minded of how much I en­joyed the mag­a­zine with my first preg­nancy and can’t wait to buy fu­ture is­sues. They say every preg­nancy is dif­fer­ent and I’m ex­pe­ri­enc­ing that first hand, but with help­ful ad­vice, use­ful information and on­go­ing sup­port, it’s an ex­cit­ing and spe­cial jour­ney, every time.
