I just found out I’m pregnant with our second. Completely freaking out. My son will be 3.5 when the baby comes. What do you wish you knew or someone told you about before your second came along? Thank you!
Hello. I am 6 weeks pregnant. I have always been afraid of natural birth and really don’t want to do it. I saw a video of a natural birth many years ago. Can I ask my doctor to do a C-section? Will doctors accept it? I have insurance which will cover both.
Hi, I am a mom of 3 and I feel very pregnant. We were supposed to be done after my last (2 year old) but I feel very pregnant. Idk what to think, at this point I am kind if obsessing I think. My last period was 3 days early and lasted for 1 day, basically just spotting. I never even used a tampon. I am normally pretty regular and last anywhere from 3 to 5 days with a heavy day or two in the mid... More
Is it possible to have postpartum depression over a year later? I just got a new job that is physically demanding and I haven't been sleeping well and thought maybe that was it but now I'm crying all of the time and just feel like a piece of crap and a terrible mother and wife. Sometimes I regret having my child and just look at her in annoyance and then I regret thinking that. I don... More
My husband and I just found out we are pregnant with baby no. 2! BUT I’m in a dilemma. I want this pregnancy to be as peaceful as possible and with that I want limited people knowing for as long as I can. I know eventually family will come around and see my bump, but until then I don’t know how to not let people know. The thing is, we have parties and holidays coming up where alcohol will be ar...

Im basically a single mom with no family around, I’ve never let anyone watch my toddler. If I go into labor will the hospital allow my toddler to stay in the delivery room or do hospitals have childcare centers? Will the hospital allow her to stay overnight with me?
Hi everyone! I’m 6 days late fore my period and still negative tests. Usually I have longer cycles around 39 days. I haven’t really had any major stressors that would prolong my period this month. Over the past week I’ve had sore breasts, lower back pain, fatigue, and mild cramps in my lower abdominal. Just made a doc appointment but it’s pretty far out on Oct 9th. Any advice on what to do?...

I use an app to track my menstrual cycle along with my fertility window and ovulation. I am currently three days late for my period and I am not showing any signs of starting soon. Lately I've been feeling exhausted, I've had headaches every morning when I wake up, and my lower back has been in a lot of pain as well. Although I do not "feel" pregnant. What do you guys think?
