Update on moving plans|
You won't *necessarily* need a lot of help post-baby, particularly since you don't already have another child needing things from you. (So long as you can come to terms with letting the baby cry for five minutes so you can fix yourself a sandwich and hit the bathroom, at any rate. And this is a thing you will ultimately have to come to terms with, if you value your sanity.)
Frankly, I found I much preferred it when people left us alone to sort ourselves out. Much less strenuous for me to nurse and doze and change the odd diaper than having to deal with answering the phone/door/making polite conversation/juggling others' schedules/etc., etc.
Yeah, it definitely seems like a trade-off. I'll keep that in mind, thanks.
