First Trimester

Morning Sickness with Toddlers and Baby

Here I am at 8 weeks and the sickness has kicked in full force. What is really difficult, is trying to manage the sickness and fatigue while still taking care of 3yr old twins and an 8 month old baby. Exhausting doesn't seem like a good descriptive! My husband is a teacher so he's back to school this week. Now I'm really on my own. I think the worst part is the guilt of not being able to give the twins and baby my full attention and myself at best...with energy and a willingness to play, teach and enjoy my kids. All I want to do is sleep or cocoon myself on the couch!

Dear Midwife,
I have an 11 month old son and last month my husband an I decided to start trying for another so they would be close in age. We had no idea it would work the first month. I just have so many questions.

My first pregnancy was perfect. He was 4 weeks early but no problems or anything of that matter. I feel like I'm ready to take on the role of "Mother of two" but I am also only 18.

Our families disagree that we shouldn't be having another child because it is too soon. But I want my son to learn to share before he goes to school.
