Pregnant with 2Nd Child - Nervous :)

I have a beautiful 10 month old baby boy and am currently 8 weeks pregnant with our second child. I am SO excited about having another baby. We didn't want to wait long to get pregnant again and I thank God he has blessed us with another baby!! I think 18 months apart will be great ... BUT ... lately I have been getting very nervous about having TWO. I know it will be a little easier by them because my son will be walking!!! Part of it has to do with my husband's schedule. He is a firefighter and works a 48 on 48 off shift. When he is...

Signing with Baby

Hello moms! I think I would like to start signing with my DD. I have a friend who said her sister-in-law signed with her niece and said it was helpful. For those of you who signed with your baby or are now signing, how did you start? My friend's niece is around 6 and used to watch a show on TV called Signing Time that is not on anymore. Does anyone know if there is any show like that on TV now (We are not big TV watchers so I'm a bit clueless)? I really love the idea of signing but I'm not sure where to begin (my library doesn't really...

I received several Baby Einstein DVD's as shower gifts. A friend recently told me that she read an article that Baby Einstein DVD's are not recommended. She couldn't remember why. Do you have any experience with the DVD's? Thanks!

My Son Is a Late Talker...

My son is now 2 1/2, and he talks like an 18 month old. He was not born premature, I carried to full term and had a very healthy pregnancy and delivery. We are seeing a speech therapist once a week and in the last 4 months he has made leaps and bounds but is still no where close to being at an age appropriate speaking level. We saw a child development specialist who ruled out Autism. So basically everything that I've read and heard from others is that my son had 2 strikes against him from the get-go; 1)he is a second child and 2) Boys...

Can You Help Me Get Some Rest?

I am a stay at home mother with an 8 month old son. He weighs close to 25 lbs, but is just learning to walk (talk about back problems). I am 4 months pregnant with my second child. My pregnancy exhaustion is setting in, but with the constant demands of the household and constantly carrying my son (or making sure he isnt getting into things) it has become IMPOSSIBLE to have a second of relaxation. I understand that always comes with parenting, but this pregnancy has me at such a disadvantage! The only advice Ive gotten is to rest when my...
