Right now or in the past...

How are you managing/How did you manage?

I'm 5 months deep now, and my back is starting to hurt from carrying my 11 m/o DD.It's only going to get harder I know....And I think DD is starting to sense something is going on too because suddenly she has developed this neediness she never had before!

Any advice? I'm so tired :/

    How are you sleeping? Are you able to nap with your newborn?

    I'm 16 weeks in with a 9 month old. My only thing right now is exhaustion. I need to nap at lwast once a day and dh helps at night when our lo wakes up to nurse.

    i am sleeping good. Ds2 wakes up 1 time a night. And i nap when ds1 and ds2 sleeps. Ds1 loves to sleep he takes 2 or 3 naps a day

     Not now, but in the past, I have had a four month old when I found out I was pregnant, and another time I had a six month old when finding out I was pregnant.  I remember I spent a lot of time just sitting and reading books with them.

    I have a 2.5 year old and a almost 7 month old and I'm 16 weeks. I'm exhausted to say the least. LOL

    With DD2 I found out the day before DD1 turned a year old (I was almost 8wks preg, they're 20 months apart) and it sucked because I got put on strict bedrest the last 3 months of my pregnancy.  This time around I'm currently 6w 4d and DD4 will be 10 months on Sat. So far so good but my back (which had issues pre-preg) is already starting to weaken pretty bad.  I'm just gonna have to do more stretching and light back/core work outs to strengthen my back muscles.

    It was exhausting but I dont think I changed anything. I will say this though, cherish having only 1 child! Sometimes when Im alone with 1 child over the other it brings back memories of how easy having only 1 child makes every day activities. Dont get me wrong, I love both of my children and am very excited for the third but sometimes having 2 under the age of 5 is alot of work!

    I have a two year old and a one year old and I'm about three months in with this little bean. I take a nap with them everyday, it's the only way I can make it thru the day as a pleasant happy mom lol
