  1. Oh gosh, I felt exactly the same when I went into hospital to have Lia. I had to be induced so I knew I’d be in there for a while too. A horrible feeling but at least it will soon be over and you’ll have your beautiful family all together including your new little one.

  2. It must be so hard to leave them! But if it helps I was 3 when my brother came along and 6 for my sister, and it all just seemed so exciting! Each time Mum told me that baby had a present waiting for me at the hospital for being so good….and aparantly that’s all I could talk about

  3. I’m so pleased to read this! Not pleased because you’re worried but because I’m not the only one feeling this way. I’m so worried about leaving Lottie. She has never been without us either and like you, the two occasions we have been out, she hasn’t even known. I’m sure it’s upsetting us more than it will them, but I’ve told Mr M that unless my life is in danger, I want him to go straight home after the baby is born and get Lottie! And I won’t be far behind them! Xxx

  4. Oh I felt just like this when I was about to have E and mine was an elective c section!! This part can be so stressful but it’s usually ok on the night (or day!). I think you just have to hope the timing of it falls ok and it will be so worth it once the new baby is here and G is a big brother stroking the baby. Xx

  5. When I had Anya I was still living with my parents so it was just natural for them to look after Matthew for me.
    With Zach’s birth I dropped Matt and Anya off at my parents’ at lunchtime when I went in to have my induction. I sobbed in the car, scared I would never see them again (over-anxious, moi?!) Then it was all fine and I saw them first thing the next morning with their new brother 🙂 Later that day I took Matthew to his first ever Beavers session, abandoning my newborn with my parents.
    I’m SO lucky to have my parents living 2 streets away and my kids all have a great relationship with them.

  6. You poor thing. I’m sure they will be fine. Children are so adaptable and they are likely to see it as an adventure really. #MaternityMondays

  7. This is definitely the hardest part if you already have children. We are still not sure what is going to happen with Grace when I go into labour – but she is extremely grown up for her age and I have no qualms about taking her with us if we need to. I am certain that your two will be fine and, as Kelly said, will probably see it as an adventure 🙂 x #MaternityMondays

  8. Aww hun, this is something I didn’t even think about when I had Alex as Leo is so happy to have family over our house I knew he would be excited to have someone else looking after him. Hopefully things will work out better than you are expecting and you won’t be away from them for long. Really hope all goes well for you xx #BlogCrush
