Hey, Right now I am currently pregnant and this one should be here in November. My husband and I already have a 1 year old at home. It's definitely a challenge being pregnant with a little one at home already. My best advice if you do end up pregnant again, just make sure your son doesn't feel replaced by the new pregnancy and baby on the way. Try not to change your schedule with him. I think the worst part of this whole second pregnancy was when my doctor put me on best rest and told me I couldn't pick up my little girl until after the new baby was here. There are plenty of upsides though! My little girl loves the extra floor time. Since I can't pick her up, my husband and I bring everything down to her level. It's an adjustment that affects everyone in the household. Your husband may end up having to do more than he already does to help you with your son if you do decide you want another baby.View Thread
