  • When your 14 month old naps you need to nap at the same time.  Even if you can not sleep, put your feet up and relax with a good book or a craft that you enjoy doing. You also need your sleep.  Consult with your Physician.  Your hormones are working overtime.  It is not a good feeling and I know what you are going through. It will pass and you have to know in your mind it will.  Is there a neighbor you can trust, or friend, family that can help you out at least 3 days a week with laundry, cooking/cleaning while your body is going through all of this?  You have a lot of responsibility right now with one child at 14 months and another one on the way.  Hope friends or family can come over and give you a hand.  Blessings and I hope you feel better soon.  I will keep you in my prayers.

  • i don't know about the forgetting your daughter anxiety, but i know all about the exhaustion. my son woke frequently until he was 17 months old. :) he woke me up 3-5 times for most of that year and a half. good luck, hon, and i hope you can get some rest. i think the anxiety/fear might have to do with the anxiety a lot of us feel about bringing in another child to the family and not having the time/energy/love for both kids. . . ?
