2 days later I found out I was pregnant. Now I have a high risk pregnancy (16 weeks along) and a 2 year old and I'm a single mom. I feel completely lost. Like a puzzle piece without a puzzle. I have no idea what to do, where to turn, where do I belong. Before this I was a sahm. Now what?? Any advice for me?

My lo just got on a routine and it's fantastic. She falls asleep deeply at the appointed sleep time. But every single night at about 1 am she wakes up fully awake ready to play. We co sleep so I take her to my rocking chair and rock and nurse and beg for about 2 hours. I can't be the only one going through this... How do you deal with it? What do you do? I'm exhausted.

Ok so at church today in the cry room there was a sick kid... and she was playing with my baby's toys, not usually a problem but the little girl had a runny nose and sounded junky in the chest and she was putting them in her mouth (cringe). Toys are books and a wooden bead necklace.... how should I clean these items? Some of them are irreplaceable and I would like to keep them all!
How do I put this phone down and rest? I just follow around this ball of energy all day and when she goes down and it's quiet I'm like finally, some me time! And then I'm on my phone forever googling stupid stuff or on Pinterest or on this app and I lose a ton of sleep. How do I put this sucker down and get some rest?

I am. So. Depressed. I try to put a good face on it for my family but it's heavy heavy. What can I do to get me out of this funk *naturally*? I've been on anti depressants before and they do Not work for me, in fact they do the opposite and make it hella worse. Oh and my car is in the shop so I can't go anywhere. Not helping matters! I know I should get outside but there is always ... More
My LO is advancing quicker than I can keep up! She just learned to walk and is into everything and absorbs everything very quickly and gets bored very easily. Lately bedtime has been a fight and I think it's because she's bored! How do you keep your first-walking 1 year old interested?
So my husband is a wonderful man who works 60+ hours a week to provide a good life and so that I can be a sahm, which we both feel is best for our daughter. When he is home on the weekends, he is exhausted. My daughter has a healthy dose of separation anxiety. Pretty much every second she is right there or there is screaming and crying. In order to avoid the drama and added stress on him, I ta... More
My daughter just turned 10 months old. I'm a sahm and my husband won't take me out away from her, no matter how many times I beg, no date nights, no babysitter, nothing. And forget him watching her for me. Or anyone else for that matter. So basically I've been on duty 24/7 since she was born and I'm crawling the walls trying not to lash out. I love her but this is bloody old.... More
