    Sorry dear, four months sounds like a whole lot but be rest assured, you will soon be there Blessed @blessedheart. If you don’t have help, maybe, you should consider getting one.

    As for that bigger bump, there is a theory that the second pregnancies are bigger, because the uterus becomes bigger due to the first pregnancy, so when second baby enters, it just blows it out of proportion. Anyways, four more months and it will be history.

    Thanks @oluwakemine I have a nanny but she leaves when I get home. I’ve been thinking of getting a live-in help but quite sceptical about it. Good enough, grandma stays close so anytime I feel especially tired, I send my daughter over there. And then, I begin to feel like a bad mother *sigh*

    As for the stomach ehn, I kuku know what they say. Doesn’t make it easy carrying a big tummy around. I can bet people will soon start asking when I’m due.

    Don’t mind me jare, this is just an opportunity for me to express all my complaints. I am very grateful for this blessing.

    Biko, feel free to vent oh Blessed @blessedheart.And stop feeling bad about sending your daughter to her grandma’s, it’s not easy chasing an active child with a big bump. Just chill and be thankful.

    Why are you being sceptical about getting a live-in help? It might just be the thing you need.

    Blessed @blessedheart hun, pregnancy is tougher when you also have kids to take care of, lest of all a toddler. Sending you hugs hun. I can understand the apprehension about getting a live-in help. I didn’t have one for the first 3 years of my marriage, but when the babies came, I had to give in…and I’m glad I did. My dear, you need to think about your health. Having someone who lives with you might just take most of the stress of you hun.

    As for the big belle, never mind hun. The months will soon fly right by. Sending you loads of  :hug:   :hug:   :cloud9:   :cloud9:

    Fruity @fruityfruity, welcome to the thread. Honestly, you should be here. If you share your EDD or LMP, I can add you to the tickers and tag you in the thread. What says you?

    TIPS FOR THE SECOND TRIMESTER

    Hallo ladies! How’s everyone doing? I found a list of some very interesting tips for this trimester and thought it would e good to share:

     

    1. Buy Some New Shoes. 

    Have your feet swelled along with your belly? They may go up a whole shoe size. Slip them into a pair of comfortable, low-heeled slip-ons in a larger size.

     

    2. Get Rid of Unwanted Hair. 

    You wanted to grow a baby, not a beard! It’s safe to wax or tweeze unwelcome hairs. But skip professional hair removal until after the baby is born.

     

    3. Get a Massage. 

    A massage can melt away pregnancy aches and pains. It may also help you relax and sleep better. See a therapist experienced in pregnancy massage.

     

    4. Make Time for a “Babymoon.” 

    Talk to your partner about taking a short trip this trimester, when you’re feeling best. It’s a chance to relax and reconnect before the baby comes.
