Colicky preemie brings Mom to her wit's end!

Today has been a trying day. My baby turned 3 months old yesterday, but is 5 weeks gestationally. He was born at 32 weeks. Parenting a preemie (and first baby) has been a lot more challenging than I anticipated. A little bit after his due date, he started showing signs of colic. The screaming and near constant crying really gets to me. I decided to take the year off from work, which means I am home full-time with this little bundle of "joy". We spend a lot of time walking- every day for about an hour. This helps keep my sanity, get some exercise, and relaxes my baby for a nap.

planned pregnancy.

Hi!I'm 19, 20 in October, I just married a month ago on valentines day and I think I'm pregnant. It was planned so its no surprise. The problem is that our families are in texas and he is stationed in camp pendleton, cali. His contract is up in June and our plans are to move to houston and attend college. Idk how I'm gonna be starting college and possibly giving birth! I'm pretty much an only child and not very familiar with babies but I'm so excited to be a mom and what makes me happier is that he is the dad. We dated for 6 years and married on valentines day of this year.
