Im a SAHM I have a 2.5 year old daughter who is very active and does not sleep through the night yet.The hubby and I recently started talking about trying for n2,I dont feel ready but at the same time I dont want the age gap to be too big between them.

I’ve started a new job and my husband and I have been contemplating having another child. We’ve been planning since before the job opportunity came along but this new job was too good to pass up and now we aren’t sure how to proceed. We want our kids to be close in age and as we are older, we’re nervous about waiting longer and the complications of pregnancy with age. Have any of you been in... More
Curious of other people’s experiences when they planned to have a second child. I stay at home and my baby is not an easy baby and soon to be 1. Thinking of having a 2nd sooner just because I don’t want to have a baby past the age of 35 (would wait longer if I could). Looking for advice and to hear other's experiences.
My fiancé and I were surprised to be pregnant with our 3rd child, especially just after having our son who turned one this past May. I’ve decided that I’m good with 3 kids and wanted to get my tubes tied immediately after I give birth to this baby. Has anyone out there gotten theirs done? If so, how did it go? How fast did you recover? How was your experience?
I have a son who is turning 10 next month. I’m no longer with his father and have been married to my husband for about 4 years. He wants to have a kid. At first, it was more of a space concern. We purchased a two bedroom house on a large plot with the intention of building on after a few years. It may take another few years with saving up. That’s another story. I’m getting somewhat concerned of... More
I gave birth 6 months ago via C-section and I’m exclusively breastfeeding and haven’t gotten my period back. For like a month now, I noticed that I’m again unusually more thirsty, whether I’m breastfeeding at the moment or not, & I’m getting hungry more often like I haven’t eaten anything all day. I feel little flutters in my belly and had 2 or 3 separate occasions of stomach cramps 1 or 2... More
I got an IUD about 10 months ago and I honestly don’t know how to self check it? I’m worried because my husband said a couple times that he can feel a poke which I’m guessing are the strings because he said it was soft. I’ve read about it and my obgyn said for me to check it every month to see if it’s still in place. But I’ve tried to myself and I can’t feel a thing. I’m under my husbands work ... More
My husband and I are TTC... Only on Month 1. I was several days late for my period (I downloaded a tracking app and everything) so I excitedly went to Walgreens to get a pregnancy test. Man are they expensive! I got two different brands just in case and it was over 35 dollars. I was going to check Amazon to see if they have them cheaper or in bulk but what do other people do? Do some brands wor... More
I'm fine if we don't try for a baby at this moment. But I don't want it in anymore. Am I wrong for telling him it’s my body my choice?
I just found out I am pregnant with my second and am really stressed. I though this was what I wanted but didn’t expect it to happen so soon. I got pregnant 1-2 weeks after stopping birth control and haven’t even had a period yet. I am scared to tell my husband because I am not sure he will be excited that it already happened. And my sister just got engaged. It was a mutual decision for me to s... More
Is anyone out there scared to have another child because you feel like you could never love the second one as much as you love your first? My handsome boy is my entire world and even though he's a year and a half old, I'm still finding it hard to maintain my relationship with his dad (my fiance) and be a good mom BECAUSE he's my entire world. Anyway I know he needs a playmate and so... More
Parents of two children (or more) - My hubby and I are contemplating a second child. I know everyone says you “forget” everything about pregnancy and delivery - but - ummmm...I must be that 1% that actually remembers. LOL. My question is - how do you do it? Not sleeping at night and then awake alllllllll day with a toddler. The thought of it makes me 😳😳😳😳.
