    I am 29 years old and I have a 22 month old and a 7 month old and I think I am pregnant. That would mean I will also be 30 years old with 3 kids in 30 months…. I am really freaking out…. Any advice?

    Wow, I hear you about freaking out…sounds like you might have several little babies to take care of. First of all, try to confirm if you are actually pregnant or not. If you are not pregnant currently, and if you do not want to be pregnant right now, get yourself some birth control. There are really great places you can go to learn about all kinds of birth control options, Planned Parenthood is one such place. If you are pregnant, it seems appropriate to take the next several months to come to terms with being a mom for the third time. I think one of the most important things you could do is find some time for yourself away from the babies a little bit each day. Have your partner, other family member, or friend stay with the children while you go for a walk, read a book, or just go to the bathroom by yourself. This little time away can help you feel a bit refreshed when you return to the world of mothering. And please, if you do not want to get pregnant right away again, or ever, figure out some kind of birth control that will work for you and your family.
    Many Blessings,

    I have two children and I can understand that tiny freak out time when you learn “surprise” I’m preggers. Best thing to do is to not panic or stress out about it. Go to your doc or a place that does pregnancy tests and take one. If you are in fact pregnant find some quiet time and calm yourself. Think of all the wonderful things about pregnancy and babies that you love. If another baby is out of the question adoption is a wonderful way to show that you love that little bundle of skin and love and also it’s a way to give those mommies at heart that just can’t have one their own bundle of joy.
