We're thinking about ttc #3 but I haven't done this in four years so I'm sort of stressing over it. I have psoriasis now and I use Neutrogena T-Gel shampoo and it's one of those 'no evidence saying it's harmful to baby but no evidence saying it's not' sort of thing, so I was wondering if you ladies knew of any absolute pregnancy safe ways to treat psoriasis? I also have GERD (Gastroesophogial reflux disease) and have to take zantac twice a day for it, which they say is safe but is there a safer remedy for that?
Also this would be my second planned baby (third baby) and this time around I am SO NERVOUS. With my first planned baby I had no doubts. We were so ready and when it only took 4 months we were thrilled. I had no doubts about getting pregnant, due dates, the pregnancy, birth, having a tiny one around, nothing! I had a natural birthed, exclusively breastfed little lady. This time I'm calculating due dates, worrying about it being the wrong date, worrying about the pregnancy...just worried worried worried. I want another baby so bad and don't want the fear to get in the way but why am I so worried this time around? I see people (on here and irl) just get pregnant without thinking twice about it and having 3, 4, 5...8+ babies! And I don't know how they do it! lol
After my first planned baby was born (3 years ago) my hubby lost his job and we lost our house, then we had to move in with my in laws who kicked us out so we had to sleep on my dad's front porch and while living there we found out my oldest (4 at the time, my youngest was 1) needed heart surgery and then hubby and I almost divorced and just a big messy run on sentence of stuff happened! We've thankfully fixed our marriage and my now 6 year old is healthy and hopefully doesn't need surgery again. Hubby went back to school and has just a year left and we're thinking about buying a house again, not sure yet after what happened last time, but we're moving to a nice 3 bedroom trailer out in the country with a big yard and everything for now. So we're back on our feet, though a bit wobbly. Am I just scared of falling down again? Scared of worse things happening? Has anybody else gone through something like this before? I really don't want fear to get in the way of me wanting to LIVE but I'm just so scared. I could wait...and wait...and wait...but my children would already be 7 and 4 when this baby would finally be here. Would I be waiting forever?
Am I just crazy?
