Read here to know her experience and how she ensured the transition for her and her family was smooth.

Very well phrased. I felt my heart was poured out. Being a second time mom is much more fun than I had thought it would be.

Awesome article Megha, very well relate to it... have just conceived and can foresee the future happiness coming our way. I have a daughter of 5 years of age and she is so ready to welcome her sibling, everyday we enjoy so much with her as she is asking several question about the baby and amazed us with her way of thinking as you know children have their own way of interpreting things which is just so cute :)

Very well written Megha !! It was like I am reading an article written on MYSELF. I also have taken the decision for second child for my son (who was then 5 yrs). I was then was blessed with a beautiful angel (my daughter), who will turn 3 yrs very soon. And I can't forget that moment when he came to me in the room after seeing his lil sister and with a bright chirpy smile said 'Thank u mamma for the lovely gift'!!

Lovely article Megha... So relatable.... I have a 21 months old son... And have started thinking about the possibility of taking another dive into the whole 2nd baby thing... And we would be mostly waiting for a year atleast before we finalize upon this decision, It's something tht I really want from within.... And of course one of the important reason is also to provide a sibling to my son like u rightly said.... Ur article put a bigggggg smile on my face.... Thanks for writing this.. :-)
