Well,I finally had my princess 3 weeks ago she is a joy. I didn’t know how I can love another child as much as I love my 1st child but she proved me wrong, I love my children so much I thank God for trusting me with 2 beautiful kids. As everyone know each pregnancy is different especially when your kids are the opposite sex.As I mention before my first pregnancy was great I had a boy, there was no sickness, I had energy, I couldn’t tell I was pregnant till my baby moved.But this 2nd pregnancy I was having a girl, I was sick,nausea, no energy, everything that I didn’t experience in my first pregnancy I experienced in my 2nd one. Having a girl is a joy but it is nerve-wracking and different, now I’m thinking about her 1st date,who is going to comb her hair, how much pink is too much, her first menstrual cycle, and so on, my mind is jumping all over the place my mind is going from now to 5 days from now to 10 years from now to years from now. The one thing I wish someone would have told me about having a girl is when they are born that they may have little bloody discharge in their private area, and that they will develop breast with fluid coming out of it.When I saw these thing happing to her as you can imagine I was scared and confuse, I was like whats going on, I took my daughter to the Er twice because of these things. What I found out that it was caused from having my hermons in her and on top of that I’m breastfeeding, so the Dr assured me that it was normal and it will go away in a few weeks(Ok now I can breathe a little better). So having a girl will bring brand new experiences for me and that is something I’m looking forward to.
I am now 38 weeks pregnant and getting anxious and excited by the day,I can’t wait to meet the little princess that I have only seen through ultra sound and that been very active in my stomach doing flips kicks and everything else.One thing I don’t look forward to is my stress test I have been going for that test 2 time a week every week since I was 32 weeks, and I’m not high risk( shoulder shrug).From what the ladies in the office said it is something that they do for everybody that go to that particular office for prenatal care, oh well I guess better safe than sorry.My son is also very excited about meeting his little sister he would read to her, talk to her and kiss my stomach.I even ask him what he wanted to be for Halloween and he said a big brother( I put on my awww face with a smile.). What I’m doing for him is getting a #1 Big Brother t-shirt and I will give a little present to open up in the hospital.I have been having cramping feeling in my stomach and back area they are not very strong it is manageable,I get it at least once a day.So I think she will be here in less than a week to make her appearance to the world.So my little princess will be here soon I CAN’T WAIT.

I am now 36 weeks pregnant, so I have 4 weeks to go whoo before I have my bundle of joy. For the past couple of week I found myself being emotional, I’m getting irritated really quick, my patience is real short, and crying for what I don’t know lol. My husband told me I can’t wait till you have the baby because you was a lot nicer( I had to give him the side eye, like I know you didn’t say that to me)but anyway my emotion are all over the place. I have tried to keep my feeling in check but its a little hard for me, so that one thing I’m working on this week.I have notice in past month my stomach is a little more sensitive than before,I can talk about something like spoiled milk or something a little nasty and I will gag or I can see something that can be spoiled or smell something bad I will gag I even gag at the smell of smoke, where before I can stomach all of those thing with no problem I was like whats wrong with me, I just chalked it up to being pregnant.So I hope that goes away soon after I give birth.My supervisor keep asking me when am I going on maternity leave and I keep telling her when I go in to labor because I don’t want take away from my 6 week maternity leave I rather have my full 6 weeks with my baby then take a week off before and have only 5 weeks with her.So that really has me think about returning to work 6 weeks after having my baby,I don’t know if I want to leave my baby after that short period of time I know a lot of mother have to do but I don’t want to be one of them, I don’t think that enough time to bound with the little one.So I’ve been looking at working from home or having my own home business. The home business part I have already started but that takes time to build a successful business that generate the type of money that is needed.So I am really considering working from home till my home business pick,I started some research and preparing to by the equipment that I need to get started.We will see how everything will work out.
Question? How soon after you had your baby did you go back to work. And how did you feel about it?

I’m 31 weeks pregnant now and I’m a little anxious about my little princess being born. I have a lot of question like who will she look like, will she be ok,will she be happy,will she be healthy, will I do a good job,will she be attached to me, how will her big brother act( by the way my son is 5 years old) and so on.There is a lot of things that is floating through my head and a lot more question that I have, will I guess they will be answered as time go on.On top of that I’m in the middle of moving to a new and bigger place and we haven’t start shopping for the baby yet, lol and smh (shaking my head), I know I know shame on me.I not worried about it because I know with the grace og God every thing will be ok.
I have a question what concern did you have during your pregnancy or you spouse pregnancy? And how did you deal with it?

I’m now 30 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child, I knew that the outcome of this pregnancy would be different. During my first trimester I had nauseous,moody,emotional,I just was not feeling good thank God I wasn’t vomiting.My first pregnancy there was nothing wrong with me I had no sickness at all which was wonderful, I couldn’t tell I was pregnant unless he moved.This pregnancy was the complete opposite lol,so I knew I was having a girl. I’m kind of happy that I had a different experienced this go around to see how it feels to go through those symptoms,but my next pregnancy I hope its like the 1st.But over all it been a good pregnancy, knowing I’m going to bring a beautiful little girl home in 10 weeks makes everything worth wild.
This week was very exciting and important to my family my baby boy is gowing up he started kindergarten this week can you said proud mom.It was so different getting him prepared for school this year, the year before all I had to do was register him for pre-school and buy clothes and shoes this year was totaly different I had to get uniforms shoes and school supplies not just any type of supplies it was the supplies from the school list,I was confused about the thing and the quantity that was on the list.But anyway my son love school and I’m happy about that and I know thanks to his pre-school and father he is prepared to start and take on kindergarten.He knows that basics and more, like sight words, days of the week, the months and much more.When he comes home he always have a story to tell me which put a smile on my face. I have a kindergartener now.
Back in February I was a few weeks in my weight lost challenge and I was doing great. But all of a sudden in March I wasn’t feeling well, I was feeling nauseous, and weak when I go for my morning walk/run. So I decided to take a pregnancy test and guess what it came back positive, I was happy but, in the back of my head I said to my self really in the middle of me trying to get my sexy back lol. Hey, what can I say but baby on board. Now I’m 6 months with a baby girl, I’m so excited I can’t wait to meet this little person that has been moving all around my stomach, and causing me to have morning sickness.The family can’t wait to meet her especially her big brother. So in about 3 months we will welcome a new edition to our family.
Being a Parent is a full-time, 24/7,365 days, none stop job.It is hard and frustrating at time’s but it is very rewarding.Once you are blessed with this position you just can’t quit and leave it alone or give them back. I thank God that he trust me enough another life,a human being, my son is a blessing and each child that comes into my family will also be a blessing.My son is my first biological child, when I had him “I was like wow I just had a baby, I can’t belive this” it took me about a good week for it to sink in my head that I was a mom. I was happy with my little boy. Then I started to look around for how to be a perfect mom/parent manual and as we all know that doesn’t exist lol.So I was thinking to my self as I was feeding my new-born How can I be the perfect mom then and a little voice in my head say’s you won’t be a perfect mom because no one is perfect, but you will be a great mom.Now with that being said there no such thing as a perfect parent, we are going to make mistakes, we are not going to be 100% right, and we won’t know everything. Everthing will be in trail and error especial with your first child. I know I have been through it already and my son is 4 1/2. Here are some of the things that help up to now and I belive that will help me in the years to come.
Giving Love-I think giving your love is the best thing that you can give your children, as long the feel love know that they are love, and see that they are love they can accomplish a lot of thing
Patience-mom’s/parent’s we must have patience with ourselves we it come to raising our children each day will be a different learning experience no matter how many kids you have.We must not beat ourselves up over thing that we can not change, or mistakes that was made all we can do is learn from it.
Being Open minded as parent we have to understand that our children will go through life in different ways, the same way that child one go through life will be different from child two and so on.So we must be open-minded to the adventures that they go through even as babys.Hey we may learn something new.
Flexibility-is important, no matter how much we plan and organize and prepare something always happen that will take us off course.So we have to be flexible on what we do how will handle each situation, and go back to the drawing board make some adjustments and keep it moving .
Discipline-I belive discipline your child is another way of showing your child that you love and care about them.Let me be clear I’m not talking about beating your child or abuse.I’m talking about discipline with love and care. I do belive in spankings but I don’t belive that the only form of discipline.I do think talking to them in a firm voice, taking their toys or games, putting them in the corner and so on should be the first thing that you do.We have to be careful not to punish you child while you are made.
These are some of the things that I think will make me a better parent. What do you think? You can add your own pointe in the comment box.It will be interesting on what people think.
