I am a mommy of 2, 2 years and a nine month old. I have about 6hours of sleep a night, most times interrupted. I can’t put my babies to sleep or eat at a schedule because the older one need to have his dad around at night in order to sleep through the night. Dad has weird work schedule. What I am seeking for is to remind myself of who I am, it’s like I don’t know who I am anymore. I give 95% ... More
30 more days till due date! But lately I’ve been getting pulsating back pain, like all over my back lower/upper even radiates to neck but mainly in middle back and I get b.hicks sometimes with it too.
I just wanted to know if there’s anything I can do to help boost my supply back up? I tried mother’s milk tea and loads of water already. Is there anything else I can do? I thought women (moms) can tandem feed? I also EBF so baby refuses a bottle of almost every kind and sippy cups too. Is there a formula that is going to taste like breast milk? I just don’t know what else to do. Thanks in ad... More
So I’m 7 months post and still have a lot of excess skin like to the point it looks like I could have just had her. I work out eat right and do ab tightening exercises but nothing works. My abs still feel separated and even though I’m losing fat the skin is refusing to go back to normal. Any one else have this issue and if so did you get a tummy tuck? I also have chronic back pain and have read... More
My son is 16 months and will be 2 when this one is born.
A friend of mine is expecting her THIRD boy in the Spring. She already has two twin boys - and will have 3 under the age of 2 on her hands. A group of us are trying to find the best way to help her other than a meal train. We are trying to get creative. We all have children that are young so keep that in mind. Thank you!
I’ve been contemplating not using epidural for my second time delivery, I used it the for the first, but a lot of people have been telling me that they passed out and I don’t want to miss out on the first moments of my baby being brought in the world. Has anyone else done it and how was it? I remember how painful the contractions were but when they told me to stay still to get the epidural, I... More
I had an awful day and night. Had 3 breakdowns where I just hysterically cried. I have a two year old, a one year old, and am 9 months pregnant and I was with the kids all day while my husband worked. It was fine for the most part except my one year old gets into EVERYTHING that it’s just too much to baby proof. And it blows my mind I can’t get a single thing done such as washing dishes for 10m...

Have any of you suffered from prenatal depression? I’ve dealt with anxiety and depression throughout the last few years, but this is different. Almost how it was before my doctor and I figured out the right meds/dosage way back. I’m almost through the first trimester with my second pregnancy so I know my body is changing and my hormones are crazy right now. I’ve talked to my doctor, and going t... More
Hi all. I have a 16 mo daughter and I’m 12 weeks going on 13 weeks pregnant. We’re super excited to grow our family and I’m adamant about continuing breastfeeding until my babies self wean. We also bed-share and I’ve been getting plenty of sleep since my 16 mo was born. Recently though I’ve been getting irritated with nursing at night all of a sudden and haven’t been able to sleep through it fo... More
I just found out I am 10 weeks pregnant. For my first baby (who is currently 16 months), we had a huge baby shower with family and friends. But, for this baby, I don't think it’ll be right to have another baby shower. For one, we moved out of state & secondly, everyone always judges those who have baby showers back to back. I was thinking of only doing a registry if anyone wants to get ... More
So I have 4 children (2 of each)and one on the way. My boys both have disabilities and they are very difficult to handle at times. My youngest son is 3.5 yrs old and has ADHD, sensory issues and has a violent temper. He’s very aggressive at times and he receives a lot of services and help (he’s doing better than prior to services). Anyways I saw my ob and he is about to retire he’s about 84 yea... More
Do any of the other mommies on here suffer from or did suffer from Postpartum depression or anxiety? My ppd was at its worst when my son was 6weeks old or so & has since gone almost completely away but sometimes I still feel it sneaking up when I’m away from my son for too long like at work or such things. Also, when he’s not with me I have major anxiety about if he’s okay, how he’s feelin... More
So my son is just over 4 months now, but I’m still having a lot of postpartum issues. I’m having hot flashes constantly, my body temperature never stays the same for very long and my hair is falling out a lot. I get dizzy easily and my periods have gotten shorter and my menstrual cycles are way off and I’ve alway had regular cycles. I don’t sleep very well either even if my little one is sleepi... More
