I want to start this off by saying my hormones are raging so please watch how you word things or I will cry from your responses. This is my first baby. He's due July 30 (any day now he could be coming). I currently live with and care for my boyfriend's child whom I'd taken on as my own. He calls me Mom, my boyfriend and I share responsibilities together, and sometimes it feels like ... More
I am 4’11 and have had to lower my son’s crib as he can pull himself up now (14 months). However in order to lay him down I’ve literally got to crush my abdomen and literally lift my feet off the ground 😅😖 How do pregnant moms do it?? I’m trying to have baby #2 and worried that it’ll be very difficult to lay my toddler safely down while he’s sound asleep and be pregnant at the same time🤰🏻 help!
I am in my 8th weeks. When we showed to doc (informing there was one-time brown discharge not red, nausea but no vomiting), she said they can see the heartbeats on ultrasound but couldn't provide the heartbeat info. Per them, it seems like baby is not grown in the last one and a half week. I have been asked to come back after 2 more weeks and call immediately if I see red discharge. Should... More
Most of the guys names on my fiancé’s side start with a Tr... most of them are unique.. I’m looking for either or ☺️
Absolutely so stressed out. I’m due Saturday and there is absolutely no changes at all. Getting admitted and induced Wednesday night next week if nothing happens. I really don’t want to sit here and exhaust myself trying to get her to come out but I also really don’t want to be induced. I’ve run out of options and I don’t know what to do.
I keep meaning to ask my OBGYN about this, but always forget! It doesn’t happen very often, but there’s been a couple times my 3 year old has come down pretty hard on my 31+ weeks pregnant belly! He’s sat down hard on it once and also stepped on the side of it once when I was laying down. Both times it hurt, but I’d always pay close attention and would be able to feel the baby moving around lik... More
Im now 5 days late for my menstrual. A few days before i was due i had some weird cramps and pains in my tummy, and a pretty intense headache. I figured that i would be starting very soon. The day came and i didn't. I took a couple test and they looked somewhat positive. I waited a few days and took more. 3 days after my period was due and negative. Help?!
I feel so embarrassed for even posting this (that’s why it’s anonymous) but do any of you mamas feel like fat ugly blobs after having their baby? I look in the mirror and practically cry at how I look. I lost all of my baby weight (and more) but I’m not as toned out and smooth looking as I used to be. Are there any easy work outs y’all recommend for toning out the fat? Any remedies to make stre... More
I have been struggling with dry patches on my face. I am 4 months pregnant with my second child and this didn't happen the last time. I drink plenty of water and also use emu oil mixed with rose hip oil. In the past these 2 helped but not this time. Did anyone else experience this? What did you do? I'm desperate for facial hydration!
My toddler wanted to me to read to him and I was sitting at the couch but not completely sitting up so he came to sit on my lap and sat on belly instead. I’m six months pregnant. Should I be worried? I feel a bit crampy now, what should I watch out for?
Have any of you mamas experienced PPD? Or any form of it? I was recently diagnosed with postpartum anxiety and depression and my doctors are planning on doing more tests for postpartum OCD as well. I’m not sure what to do or how to feel. I know it doesn’t make me a bad mother but i can’t help but feel lost and ashamed. Every little thing gets to me, a small mess on the counter, shoes not in the... More
Looking for recommendations on the best bed side bassinet that has drop down sides or is a co sleeper. Not wanting it in our bed but rather right beside our bed that would make it easy to access the baby for feedings without having to move or sit up anymore than necessary to lift the baby over the edge as you would from a traditional bassinet
