I had a beautiful baby boy. My periods returned in June (April delivery, formula baby) and have been regulat since August. They've been livable after the first one which makes sense to have been worse, I mean, hello, lol. But this one right now... Never have I ever had one this bad. The cramps and the flow (replaced one regular tampon that was soaked only to soak through another onr within ... More
My mom just lost her baby girl, 6 DAYS before she was going to give birth. My mom had a nuchal cord is when the umbilical cord becomes wrapped around the fetus's neck. Symptoms present in the baby shortly after birth from a prior nuchal cord may include duskiness of face, facial petechia, and bleeding in the whites of the eye. Complications can include meconium, respiratory distress, anemia... More
Almost 5 months PP and my hair has been falling out like crazyyyyy for the past 3 weeks. Any advice?
Im still taking my prenatal vitamins but is this normal? I mean my hair had thinned out like it never had before and I’m begging to worry when this is going to stop 😔.
This is my second baby and she is just about 5 months and we have been exclusively breastfeeding. I’ve had a bunch of issues postpartum but, now that it’s all resolved I have developed reoccurring BV. I stopped breastfeeding for 7 days to treat it and and so happy baby went right back to the breast but now I have it again and I refuse to take more meds and potentially lose our breastfeeding rel...

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
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
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...

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
After my first pregnancy my weight basically stayed the same even after I quit breastfeeding. With my second one who is just about 1yr old, I stopped breastfeeding at 4 months and over the past couple months I’ve gained nearly 15 lbs even though my eating habits haven’t changed. I’ve tried adding in workout sessions a few times a week and I haven’t seen any changes. Wondering if maybe I should ... More
I feel like even after a year I may still have the baby blues... I am holding my feelings back and not really talking to anyone about how I feel. If I get close to talking about it, I get an “I’m sorry” from my husband. He doesn’t seem to understand. I don’t want to do anything sometimes except just be lazy. When I think about cleaning it just make me feel blah, like why bother when it’s just g... More
Hello! I was wondering if anyone went through something similar or had any tips? After having my first child, I started having heavy periods. I have what was thought to be endometriosis ( which hasn’t returned yet) and a heavy period before a baby. However now they have just been getting heavier and heavier 😳 I’m talking soaking through overnight pads every 2 hours I am breastfeeding, and this... More
