I had a really traumatic birth with my first and had to have an emergency c section. Everything that could of went wrong did and I’m terrified it will happen again. I’m pregnant again and have a c section scheduled for may 13th. Its giving me so much anxiety and keeping me up at night. I’m terrified! Was your second c section any better? Does that fear go away? I’ve talked to my doctor about it... More
Currently 27 weeks pregnant with a 7 month old.. hubby wasted no time 🙃 (he and his brother are a year apart, so he has this idea it’ll be easy and they can keep each other company since they’ll be close in age etc, so against my better judgement I agreed with him 🤦🏾♀️) it’s been over a month since I quit working but it seems like I’m more tired now than when I worked 😩 but I dare not vent to ...

My 14 month old girl twin hits or swats at her twin brother if he reaches for something she has....and sometimes she hits or swats at him for no apparent reason. Also, she’ll snatch an interesting toy from him if she wants it and he’ll cry then move on to something else. He may try to grab it back but she’s stronger and more aggressive so he’s unsuccessful. She’s weighs two pounds more than he ... More
Long day at work, took the almost 3 and almost 7 year old to Trader Joe’s to grab a few things for dinner. The first 5 minutes were fine but I’m pretty sure the rest of the trip was all of the following: -verbally wrestle 3 yo back into cart seat -physically wrestle 3 yo back into cart seat -no less than 7 flat tires from 7 yo’s kid cart -multiple reminders to 7 yo to watch where she’s going (a...

Any moms gone through this? We are pregnant with baby #2 and I have been feeling awful most days. I'm a SAHM with my 16 month old but I feel awful that I am useless when it comes to entertaining him lately. I have been prescribed zofran, I've tried teas, ginger everything, etc. But I still am nauseous most of the day (on most, not all, days). What got you through it? I feel so guilty bc... More
I work full time and care for me 2yr and and am expecting another child. Lately, I’ve been feeling like everyday is just the same ole same ole. Of course there’s the part of me that feels guilty because I know how blessed I am, that there’s no drama per se. But, I’m just curious how others spice up their routine.
My husband and I have a 1 year old son and just found out we are pregnant with a second baby, this wasn’t expected. I want to know how to make sure my son doesn’t feel left out and unloved now that he’ll have a little sibling. Both my husband and I had just set our minds on only having our son but I guess life had other plans.
Im about 30 wks pregnant with my second and my first (22 months old) is starting to become very protective/possessive of me around my husband. I stay at home with her, so I'm not sure if that comes into play. But at times she will hardly let my husband talk to me let alone touch me, without saying "no my mommy" or something like that. We all eat dinner together, sometimes they hav... More
My 2 and a half year old daughter was getting potty trained the last couple of months of my pregnancy. She was doing so well!! I actually wanted to start earlier in the year because she was going at home but we had to wait till she was in the older class...due to the policy at day care. But lately after having her brother all the progress has been thrown out the window and gotten soooo much wor... More
Really struggling to go out with my three girls. They are a handful to say the least. My oldest is almost four, middle is three and a half, and baby is five months. The older two are just awful when it’s time to leave the park, which makes it that much harder to even want to take them. How do you do it? I can’t be the only one struggling
I’m going crazy!! Had my twins on Sept. 16th and my MIL took care of my 2 year old when we were in the hospital and has stayed with us ever since to help out. While she is a lot of help, she’s also really overwhelming me. I’m an introvert and she’s a total extravert and is always talking, often repeating phrases three times for no reason and very loud. While I really appreciate her help, especi... More
We recently just had our first LO back in May. My husband and I have discussed the thought of another kid but said we are going to wait a while. Well I’m 6 days late and just took a pregnancy test and it’s positive. I’ve been on the pill for the past few months and am just shocked that this could even happen. I’m terrified to tell my husband. I’m not even ready emotionally/physically to endure... More

I am currently 6 weeks pregnant and have a 17 month old. My toddler has rarely been away from me and it gives me anxiety to think of leaving him to be in the hospital. Family has proven to be challenging and I'd rather not ask for their help. I have until May but am just trying to brainstorm. Any suggestions would be great.
