When Nova’s sick, even if it’s just a cold, I go into full-on mama-bear mode. I’m protective, paranoid, and so sad for her. I always wish it could be me who had to go through it instead!
So Tuesday morning, when I received an email from Nova’s daycare saying there was a case of hand-foot-and-mouth disease, I panicked.
I felt way more confident and prepared for my second pregnancy than I did when I first found out I was pregnant with Alex - I’d been through it before, I knew exactly what to expect. Or, so I thought! Turns out, every pregnancy is different and doing the same thing a second time doesn’t necessarily make it easier.
