Hey all, I’m looking for some advice on how to hear both my wife and my kids during the night while I’m sleeping. While my wife was pregnant with our first child I heard her instantly when she needed help turning or anything else; but now with our first son born and in the room in his crib and she’s pregnant with our second child (third trimester) it seems I only hear him stirring in the night...

I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and i was 7.4 weeks pregnant then. I was informed that i had two sacs in my uterus. The doctor was looking at them both and told me that he couldn’t see anything in one of them, but the other one he could have possibly seen something. I have to go get another ultrasound in two weeks to figure out if theres anything actually in the sac(s). I know that light bleed... More
To preface, I don't have kids of my own yet. But I am at the stage of life (late 20's/early 30's) when I'm beginning to seriously consider starting a family. One thing that I have always been cautious about is a chronic injury that I have. As a teenager, I was a gymnast/diver and ruptured several discs in my lumbar spine that have left me with chronic pain. I have always been ne... More

Here’s the thing..I’m 3/4 days late for my period( I’m never late) I had light cramps last week and have been feeling like I’m going to catch a cold for the past week.

I had my lmp on 10/17/19. I tested positive by urine on 11/12/19 & 11/18/19 by blood test. I had a transvaginal ultrasound on 12/5/19 and Gestational sac and yolk is measuring 5 weeks with no fetal pole. I know I should be 7 weeks per lmp. Could there be a mistake?
I feel a little silly asking this, but how did you handle daycare pickup during your third trimester & after birth of your [second, third, etc] child? I’m 32 weeks along and have an 18 month old who goes to daycare. Due to our work schedules I do drop off and pickup, but it’s harder every day to literally PICK UP the toddler to put them in/out of the car seat, let alone maneuvering their ... More
I'm 21 weeks pregnant with our second baby boy and our first-born is 2. I keep hearing the transition from 1 to 2 kids is a lot harder than going from 0 to 1 kid. Please share tips or experiences on how to make the transition easier and/or encouraging words. I'm a little nervous since I experienced PPD with my first.
Day 3 after birth. We were discharged last night from the hospital. My breasts are so engorged as I have chosen to not breastfeed I am reaching out for HELPFUL suggestions to relieve pain other than ice/heat compresses and pain medicine as I have already been doing those.

I have been losing weight drastically and my OB let me know I need to put on some weight, she suggested Ensure and I was all for it until I tried it. It’s too sweet and I just couldn’t do it. Are there any quick recipes or other ways you gained weight the healthy way while being pregnant? TIA! Side note: With this pregnancy I have had no desire to eat, if I do it’s literally because I force my... More
I’m 10 weeks pregnant with my second child. I’m so, so grateful to be pregnant - although I feel much more nervous than excited right now. Maybe because I know what to expect and it’s gonna be crazy? 😂 Looking for any reassuring experiences that you may have had when you were pregnant with your second?
