My sister and I delivered within 4 days of eachother. Me- late her- early

I had struggled with secondary infertility and she was just not having sex often. But wabted s baby. We both popped the same month. Oddly only a couple weeks after a family vaca in Florida. I live in Cali- she lives in the Midwest. I never even considered her in my family making plans. I love her dearly but she's not in my family bed, kwim? Lol.

The biggest suck factor is- its her first baby. She needs and wants to talk to me constantly. But dude.... 3 kids. I'm too busy!!! I'm nursing, wiping butts and doing laundry while she still manages 3 naps a day, with her one baby it's totally different! I remember having one. It was so hard.. But in reality- its so easy, compared to juggling 3. Lol.

Thanks for your comments. Yeah, I remember what a shocker it was when I had my first. I really hadn't comprehended what it meant to have no sleep until DS1 was actually here. Now I'm a little afraid of what it might be like to be outnumbered!

Re: Need advice, quick, please!

My niece is 5 weeks older than my ds2. My sis and I live 4 hours apart. I went to her labor and helped her (rubber her back, held her leg up, etc for hours!) while DH stayed home with DS1. It worked out although it was hectic at the time. Our babies are now really close even though they only see each other once a month. Plus sharing our pregnancies was really awesome (except for the times pregnancy hormones made us too emotional )
