I'm so sorry. I was much more miserable with my 2nd than with my 1st, too. Have you looked into getting one of those pregnancy pillows? It's like a big body pillow but it's longer and curves. You use it while sleeping on your side - tuck it under your head and neck on one end, under your belly, and between your legs. It takes the pressure off your spine and really makes a difference.

What's on my mind? Sleep!! I'm 20 weeks along and so uncomfortable! I am achy and so tired, this is my second child. I was not this miserable with my first!

That sounds pretty nice! I have a regular body pillow but it hasn't been doing the trick! Lol

It is nice, and you can actually lie in a variety of positions with it, but it's not cheap. It's like $80. My mom bought me one with my 2nd and I passed it to my sister who gave it to our other sister, and back again, lol. It holds up really well, though, and you can use it while nursing or bottlefeeding the baby, or just to help support you sitting up in bed holding baby. The one we have is called Today's Mom Cozy Comfort Pregnancy Pillow.

I did the same thing when I was pregnant still. My daughter is two months now and I still get emotional watching other deliveries.


Quoting meganliz11:

Going on a road trip with fiancée. 27 weeks pregnant and already so uncomfortable! Though something that's been bugging me lately is everytime a song on the radio talks about a baby my eyes water. Or when the tv is on and " a baby story" comes on I cry when the babies are born! I'm so emotional! I'd love to talk ladies, feel free to add and message!

I feel like poo :( I either have a plugged duct or mastitis. my breast hurts with every movement or the slightest touch, which really sucks because my 5wo has punched & pinched it a million times!! plus I'm all achey & I have the chills.

Hey everyone I have a 5 year old and a 21 year old and I am home all day long 6 days a week by myself with the kids. Do any of you feel overwhelmed? My 5 yearold rolls his eyes at me and I get so upset with him and then when I give him a time out he looks at me as the devil and my 21 year old is like a ping pog and I feel that I'm parenting wrong and it's frustrating.  How can I relieve my frustrations and how can I have my five year old listen. Like I ask him to do something and by the tenth time I get upset and yell and then he does it. I do not want be like that.   


My fiancé doesn't help on Sundays I'm home and he puts them on me when ever he can and ts annoying bc I have them all day and all night long. I need a break but can't ever get one, I have no money and I feel like I'm just a nanny taking care of them even though I am the mom. Does anyone feel like this ?
