    Hi rosenav
    Congratulations on your pregnancy! managing a toddler with your pregnancy can be quite tough. However, don't take it too bad upon yourself. relax as much as you can, and don't worry about finishing all your chores in time. if possible, hire an all-day maid, or call over a relative for a month or two. in the meanwhile, spend time with your toddler as much as you can. you can consider enrolling him for a playgroup or activity center.

    I know it can be tough... I guess it's a phase in every child, I have a two yr old he is a lill monster, we just started his pre school, which is so good as we get sum time off and he gets to make frnds n play all day...it's just being a week ..but my lill guys just loves it ...I'm trying fr my 2nd one so till see how my lill one feels.

    Do think you can put your gal in a pre school... She will enjoy her new frnds.

    Hi Friends,

    I have 1 year old kid and now i got pregnant once again. It is very much unplanned. My hubby is not happy with this and asking me not to go for pregnancy. but my mom and in laws are asking me to go ahead with this kid since if i get pregnant after 2 years they will not be able to support since they are getting older. (My mom is taking care of my kid now)

    I may get good opp. at office next year but my kid is more important to me. I cannt kill my kid for my mistake. My husband is very stubborn in his decision. I am crying everyday.

    I dont want to throw the one who come to me. If I do that I will become mad for sure. But convincing husband is very difficult. If his dislike continues after my second kid's birth, then all things will be in mess. I am crying everyday. Feel like in hell. Ladies please give me mental support.

    Hello Friends,

    Am also sailing in the same boat as many of you.. my DS is 22 months old and am 3 months pregnant now.. Its becoming tough day by day to handle the toddler as he is hyperactive..!!!

    My due date is in Dec 2013..and I just keep saying myself that "This phase shall pass too". But at the same time, I get scared when I foresee how am going to manage 2 kids with very less age gap.

    I am imagining too many things and am getting disturbed... am really unable to enjoy my second pregnancy..

    Please give me some suggestions to stay calm / positive dear friends... also how to prepare my elder one for the arrival of new baby... will he get jealous? will he accept the new baby? am really confused..!!!

    Thanks,
    Priya Amit.

    Dear thenmozhi,

    Thanks a lot for the reply. I will also try to console myself and let me face things positively. you are right, at first it will be difficult which is reason for our worry now. but later years it will be definitely easy.

    My mother will help me during delivery and may be 3 to 4 months after that. she also has her own commitments so I cannot force her to stay with me more than that. MIL also has some health problems, so I have to start looking for a maid to take care of household things.

    When is the due date? Advance wishes to you. keep posting your experiences. thanks a lot!

    Priya.
