My husband and I went to a baby shower last Saturday, our daughter ended up ill Tuesday along with a couple other kids that were at the baby shower and my husbands sister. We also had some leftovers on Monday. Last night my husband ended up ill and I’m 15 weeks pregnant and have been sick a few times this morning. Nothing sounds appetizing, which I had just gotten over that stage in my pregnanc... More
I need to know how parents stay energized and motivated. I have a toddler, three dogs (one is a foster that I’m still trying to find a permanent home for without having to take to pound or something else) and a cat.. I work 3 whole days and two half days a week and I have no energy to do anything even clean up the house most of the time.. I have severe anxiety so I’m trying to stay away from co... More
I’m currently 31 weeks and lately have been getting lower back pain with bh’s. Never had that happen with my first pregnancy. When I brought it up to my nurse practitioner (I don’t get to see the actual ob/gyn) she said it’s probably due to my weight gain. I’ve only gained 40 lbs but apparently that’s too much (went up 5 lbs in two weeks) and told me to just keep hydrated and cut back on eating... More
I have a cold and a 6 month old. What are ways I keep her from getting sick? Especially with her being so dependent on me. She hardly wants me to put her down. I put on a mouth mask this morning so I don’t breathe on her and she freaked out 😳 she was literally scared of me. So no mask then. I know to wash my hands thoroughly but I do that anyway even when I’m not sick.
To the ladies who’ve had a copper IUD or currently do. I just recently got 1 after my second child. It’s been 2 1/2 almost 3 months since I got it done. Before kids I had a 7 day very heavy painful period. After having my first the throwing up was gone and pain wasn’t as bad and not as heavy. I knew getting an IUD meant I would have heavier, longer, painful periods and I didn’t mind because I f... More
Hi, I am 17 weeks pregnant and all of a sudden I got this lower abdominal pain on my right side. Its not constant but a mild pain that has been on and off all day today. I am not sure why I got this, but I am visiting my brother and have been sleeping on the floor as there’s not enough beds.
Hey mamas, I’m just confused and a bit worried and want to see if any of you experienced something similar.. so i finally got my period 14 months after delivery (im breastfeeding) month ago, it lasted for a day, then again 3 weeks later and it was like my old regular periods, lasted for 5 days. I did pap smear a few days later and now I’m bleeding again. I wouldn’t say very heavily bit enough f... More
I’m thinking about getting the Mirena. I just had my 2nd child 4 months ago and I’m currently on the mini pill, sometimes I forget to take the pill so I’m trying to get on something I don’t need to remember and something that is more long term it was between the Mirena or the shot. Thinking more of getting the Mirena..has anyone tried it or is currently on the Mirena? What are the side effects ... More
So yesterday I realized my breast was tender, we are 13 months strong with breastfeeding and working on causally weening. Last time I had a tender/ hard breast was months ago. He still nurses just not as long & mostly at night or for comfort. So I’ve been Massaging the lump & trying to nurse my son in different positions. About to try a hot shower as well. Just in case I made a dr app... More
So I found out I was pregnant Monday. Today I started having sharp pains in my right side. I went to the doctor and did blood work and have to go back Monday to do more blood work. I have endometriosis and that’s the same pains I’m having. But I also read that ectopic pregnancy’s make one side hurt. Anyone experience either of these?!?
I have never been pregnant and this is my first time trying. I went to the obgyn about a year ago and she said to wait until I have been trying for at least a year. it's been off and on of trying with my fiancé since then, because of his child from his previous relationship, going to court to try for equal time- sharing for both parents and the stress that comes with that. We aren't m... More
Any of you just feel EXHAUSTED? all the time, any time? I have a two and a half year old, a full time job, and I drop her and pick her up from daycare close to my work (40 min drive to home) everyday, along with cooking and household chores. Even if I come home and not do the chores, I just feel TIRED. Any tips? Help, suggestions? I’m 35 but I feel like I’m 70! No energy
I recently decided that for my own health I would stop pumping. I was exclusively pumping for my baby. She is three months tomorrow and I have felt so much guilt about stopping. But I am under so much stress at work and just about having to pump all day. I felt like that was the only thing I was allowed to do was pump. I barely slept through the night because I would always wake to pump. I only... More
7 weeks prego started at 115 (I’m only 5ft) and now I’m 110. I’m not vomiting anymore and slowly eating more but I cannot for the life of me gain weight or keep the weight on. I need like a daily meal plan (super bland cause I have horrid morning sickness). Any suggestions. I stay at home and I’m an amazing cook so I can cook about anything. Suggestions are so welcome I’m running out of ideas!

A few weeks back I went to the ER with some heavy bleeding and everything was okay. Baby was moving around, had normal heart beat. My husband and I had intercourse that night, and we’ve done it once since then and I had light bleeding the last time. Not even close to the amount I had last time. I read online that it could be due to changes to my cervix. I haven’t had any other bleeding since. I... More
