Hi I have a 11 month old son and am now 9 weeks preggers with number 2. Would really like any advise on how to cope (yes,already) I feel like pants all day long and spend alot of time hugging the loo (TMI). My son is such an angel which is a big help but my hubby is just setting up a new business from home which he wants me to help with too, I am really struggling with this and he's being really good but I'm sure deep down he thinks I'm just being lazy. All my family/friends live 150 miles away so feel stranded at times. Sorry for being such a whinge ,any advise on how to cope with pregnancy + little one + work would be really great

I remember this! There's 19 months between my two and I felt lousy. This is no time to be starting a new business and putting pressure on you! I only got through the whole thing by sleeping when my DS was asleep so would nap too. Also spend quite alot of time with books and Thomas videos in the afternoon!

I had a 14 month age gap and in hindsight I think it was easier as she was still a little baby when I felt ill in the early stages of pregnancies and of course napped.

Sorry I don't have any suggestions other than cbeebies and early nights.

Yip been there too! 20 months difference between my 2 so no.1 was 11 months when i found out i was due another one... My first was not an angel, in to everything and only started to walk when he was 16 months, so was 6 months pregnant when he decided to put one foot in front of the other. things were hard, and still are, best advice is as Clarice suggested and that is sleep whenever you can and get the early nights packed in. You will start to feel better soon, but make sure you still rest up then.... good luck with it all............

I am 12 weeks pregnant and have extream sickness along with a 20 month old on the move little boy. TBH as soon as the hospital mentioned admitting me for a drip etc I jumped at the chance! It has been soooooooooooo tough. On drugs to help now. What is also helping is a day at nursery and two days a week at my mum and dads. The weekends I let me DH do as much as possible. Try to rest when he does, get help around the house and take all offers of help from friends! Hope you feel better soon!
