While having a beautiful baby to look after too!

Well I'm 5 years on now. But I didn't really feel sick at all with either baby. A little tired but found if we got out for a long walk it woke me up. Dh helped a lot. I was back at work also so worked from home half the week and out the other so Dh had eldest those days so I had just myself at work to look after.

I was pregnant with a 5 month old second pregnancy, I'm now 35 weeks pregnant with a two year old and one year old, I don't know how I manage, I have two great sleepers which is a blessing and they do entertain each other when I'm trying to get things done. it's hard and some days are harder than others, but I'm going to have 3 under 3 and wouldn't change it smile

Just make sure you have a lot of patience!

Dd is 8 months and high & special needs and am 5 months pregnant.

Things have been fine so far except a week or two in the beginning where I was incredibly tired and nauseous but I just pushed on through and tried to join her in her afternoon nap.

She only feeds from me (ff) and it is becoming more awkward with an expanding waistline...

6 months pregnant with a 10 month old here.. I'm knackered! I find bending over his cot and sitting on the floor for any length of time are getting really painful and awkward

Artandco Wed 27-Jan-16 16:59:32

Storm - my suggestion is get rid of the cot, get single mattress for 10 month old and put it on the floor. That way no lifting needed or stretching over cot and you can fit on mattress to lay next to him comfy if he needs settling. Add stair gate on bedroom door if needed.

I'm just so bloody tired all the time husbands away as usual only back on weekends. I find it so hard to get up in a morning and have no energy to do anything. And the sickness trying to change a stinky nappy blergh....
I'm hoping the further on I get the better I'll feel hmm

I hear you in the nappy front. I have a strong stomach and I have gagged numerous times.

DS is 17mo and I'm 40 weeks pregnant (due today) so he was under one for the first few months.

I had to give up on giving him certain foods as they made me sick. He was already 12kg during my early pregnancy and at 20 weeks I damaged my sciatic nerve which really nearly finished me off, physio did nothing. Thank goodness at 24 weeks I went to an osteopath who helped me because otherwise the grimness of the rest of the pregnancy could not have been overestimated.

Other than that I have been ok <thinks> oh- he's only started walking in the last week or two and even still he barely walks and wants to crawl all the time. So there's still a lot of lifting etc. I did not envisage a non-walking toddler at this stage but it probably has its pros as well as its cons tbh!

This pregnancy is DC3 and my other two came early so I had today's date as my absolute end point. I'm really, really ready to not be pregnant anymore!

Hope the sickness goes away soon OP flowers

Thankyou maisie I hope it does too it's mainly the tiredness! Hopefully when I'm out of the first trimester I'll come to life ...
Lots of luck I hope baby comes soon!! Xx
