Dipping my toe in...I was one of the original posters in this thread and am now 13 wks 2 days pregnant with my second. Surprise! ;-) Just had my 13 weeks scan (because I am old). Everything looks good. Chromosome/gender blood screen results should be back in a week. Carrier screening (my partner and I did the full 176) will be back 2-3 weeks. I'm nervous and am just praying for a healthy kiddo. No one at works knows. Actually most people do not know. I am starting to look preggo so I am not sure how much longer I can hide it. My 11.5 y/o is THRILLED which is a huge relief. I am looking forward to getting to know you ladies as I am sure I can re-learn so much. In many ways I feel like this is my first pregnancy!

Thanks! What is even harder to believe is she looks 13 :cry2: Maybe there is something behind this HUGE age gap.

Thanks Bella! I can’t believe it either! I’m grateful she is excited. Must be hard to share the throne after so many years.;-)

Tacori, I haven't been on PS in AGES, but saw this and had to give you my congratulations!!!! It's so crazy where life takes you! I remember reading your posts on this thread over a decade ago! I'm so excited for you!

My sister had a teenage girl and then ended up having 2 boys at age 39 and 41 (different marriage). The teenager has actually been extremely helpful. I think a large gap definitely has benefits. I have a sister who is 10 years older than I am and she was like a second mom!

Thanks NEL! It’s much quieter this time around ;-) I think there will be lots of advantages to the age gap. Hopefully it will keep me young! Chromosomes look great! It’s a BOY!!!!

Checking in, now 35 weeks.
I’ve been off work sick for the last week but hopefully back to it tomorrow, only 2 1/2 weeks left of work, can’t wait to be lazy until baby comes.

27+ weeks here so I still have a ways to go! I thought with my first I was going to have at least a week to relax and do whatever, my last day was on a Friday and I went into labor 9 hours later :knockout:

Hi ladies,

I'm thinking about buying a portable playard for my newborn daughter? I've read about lots of their benefits. The most important for me is SAFETY. Please help me to choose the best one: https://www.best-pack-n-play.com/top-8-best-playards-changing-table/ All of them look the same for me. Have you used any of them? I am so confused about what to purchase and what might be convenient for my baby girl.

Thank you!

Hi @HannahBagrich ! Just had my second little girl not even two weeks ago! We have the Graco snuggle suite LX pack and play. No complaints with it whatsoever! The changing table is great and the bassinet I actually use on the floor and around the house. I can still set her down on the pack and play mattress for naps even with the changing table on it. I do recommend getting one of those Carter’s waterproof pads to put under the pack and play sheets. You’ll get spit up on the sheets everyday and it won’t soak through to the pack and play mattress. And I don’t think the mattress is too hard at all...you don’t want it to be soft anyways! Let me know if you have any questions on it!

Man this pregnancy has kicked my butt, I’ve gotten sick so much and I am currently fighting some nasty upper respiratory infection that my doctors didn’t want to give me anything to treat. Last Friday in my 3rd doctors visit they finally gave me an inhaler and a z pack, then in Monday my OB cleared me for a steroid shot. First time I’ve been able to sleep in 12 days! With my induction planned for the 20th I was worried I wouldn’t be better, doctor only cleared me because I was running a fever and baby was slightly distressed. It’s like you have to be dying before they will do anything even at 37 weeks pregnant

@KKJohnson you poor thing, that must be so tough. Being sick when pregnant is the pits, but not being able to treat it must be so much worse. Hope you're well and truly on the improve! And you look absolutely gorgeous :kiss2:

Here to update; baby arrived December 6th. I had a very quick spontaneous labor and med free birth. Being such a rapid labour (it would have been 3 hours at the most) it was very painful compared to my first labour.
I laboured at home, turned up to the hospital yelling and ready to push a baby out. She was born a few minutes later, we stayed for 2 hours (required by law here) and then went home to bed - a little surreal!
Compared to our first she’s a lovely calm baby
