My DH is wonderful. He is so excited to be a dad! I'm 24 weeks and I can't convince him to touch my belly. He always just says when I can really feel it I will. Each day the kicks are getting stronger and I get so excited to share with him but he always says no or pulls away. I get that it may be weird but I've explained that emotionally I need this from him. I would settle for a hand on my belly. I just want that reassurance that he is still here for me and will be for baby. I have cried too much over this to which he thinks I'm overreacting. I know he'll be the best dad but does he want to be?
Lol my OH doesn't like touching it either. He's a briliant dad to our 2 year old and now we expecting again but the whole pregnancy thing freaks him out ????. He doesn't really like having sex with either when I'm pregnant. Don't worry too much hun
When I first got it in my previous pregnancy there was no free version so had to buy but I really like the contraction counter I got other free and I didn't like them. Didn't use the kick counter much but the baby and mum list came in handy also the names are good but nothing different then free name apps. Not sure what else is different. I like the weight progress chart.
I was on the pill for 7 years before trying for my first got off the pill got pregnant the 3rd month. With my second the first month. I was put on the pill due to PCOS but I'm all good now no trace of any problems with my ovarys so I'm happy. Just wanted to share something good about BC lol
Ftm here! Been reading up on swaddling and whether to or not with a newborn? Just wondered your opinions ladies! And if I decide to do I buy those swaddle blankets? Or is there a way to do it with normal blankets? :)
I think swaddling is great my mum use to do it with my sister when she was tiny but my boy hated it. He would not sleep swaddled. I will defo try it with this baby if he wants to will do it if he doesn't will not. Good luck
I have back pain from about 7-8 weeks. Same with my first, same happened to my second pregnancy but I soon miscarried and now third time and again the same very early on. I was told I have a chemical pain it's my body's reaction to pregnancy hormone that's why it starts so early. Recently I fell down the stairs aswell and made it worse ????
What do you do and are you going to school for something else or have a dream job?
I currently work at an adult novelties store (I got all you sex and sex toy answers ladies ;P) I will be going to school soon for an associates in human services then a bachelors and possible masters in psychology. I hope to work in some sort of adolescent counseling, id really like to help children with depression, teen pregnancy, and drug abuse.
I'm a first line manager in a hospital in catering department. Basically looking after the ppl that work in kitchens and make sure everyone gets fed and nothing goes wrong etc. it's a very big hospital. Currently off sick. Not going to go back there after the baby is born I'm doing courses to set up my own childminding bussiness so I can work from home and be with my 2 boys. Fingers crossed!
Is it bad to drink coffee? I was a coffee person we not exactly but I love it every time i went to school that was my thing to do is get a coffee i only go to school two days of the week I been wanting to drink some and only had it one time since I found out I was pregnant I'm 18 weeks and 5 days ... I need help is it ok to drink at least one coffee two times a weeks ?
I drink my coffee every morning the only one of the day tho and I make it weaker then I would if not pregnant. But u can have 200mg cofeine a day. So it's fine to have a cuppa. I drank coffee with my first boy throughout pregnancy and breastfeeding and everything was fine.
ok so it's been ages I just normally take a guess what everyone is saying but there are a few I don't understand. obviously there is like bf etc but people please explain some of the others :) thanks in advance
