I went to walmart today and got a good test. (2 days ago i took the cheapest one they had). YEP, I am def pregnant. Now, I need alot of advice. My son is 19 months, but I feel like I forgot alot of stuff. What foods am I supposed to avoid now? Also, can u give me advice for being pregnant with a toddler? Also, what about once the baby is born, any pointers? I know this is random questions, but I need all the advice I can get. Also, what about money saving ideas and tips. We need to buy a new car and house.

Thanks mommas

My main advice would be to get as much rest as you can, while you only have one.  When my youngest was born, he was up all night, while my oldest was up all day.  I didn't sleep that whole first year! 

Also, I was always told to limit caffeine, and stay away from sport fish like tuna, swordfish, etc.  They contain high amounts of mercury. 

Do enjoy your pregnancy.  It goes fast.  I wish I would have embraced mine more.  And enjoy your new precious baby.  Congratulations!!!!

Congratulations! It is difficult but make sure that you get everything ready as early as you can because if you're anything like me all you'll want to do is die in  your last few weeks. lol just kidding. Yes, your little man will be old enough to understand things by then so try and put him to work. I do this with my son, he gets the diapers for me, gives the baby toys everything helps you know?! You will be fine don't worry. Just like with me, everything came back to me naturally!

second one is always different, i had a 12 month old when my baby was born, he had a hard time still does with passing now of toys ect.. at this age its hard for them to understand.. and being pregnant with a small kid deffently is hard, though they will be close which also is great.. anyways just remember to spent time with the oldest even though the baby when it gets here will need you all the time take special time for just the oldest..
