Pregnant With My Second

madysenmommy - April 22

Hey ladies. I need some advice. I'm pregnant with my second child. My daughter will be 3 next month. I am sooo tired all the time and everything she does makes me crazy. Also we have told her that mommy has a baby in my belly and she laughs and says "I wanna squish it" Any advice on what to do about my energy level and how we could better explain my pregnancy to our 3 year old daughter?

Hi there. As far as energy level, are you able to nap when she naps? That would be your best bet right off the bat. If she doesn't nap anymore than make her start taking a 1 hr "rest time" in her room with the door closed where she can play quietly or look at books, or whatever, so that you can lay down on the sofa with your feet up for a bit. For explaining the pregnancy, there are a lot of books out there that help explain a sibling is on the way. Check out your local bookstore or amazon dot com!!

She does still take a nap and they usually last 2-2.5 hours so i have fallen asleep on the couch soon after i've laid her down. But i work full time mon-fri so only on saturday and sunday do i get to rest with her. That's whats been so hard. Last night i feel asleep on the couch at 8pm cause i wasn't feeling good. My husband took care of her and put her to bed which was wonderful. I woke up at 11:30 and went into our bed and slept till 8am and i could still go back to bed. Ready to get my energy back for sure.
