My goal is 130-135 After this baby. I was 135 before I got pregnant with my first. Gained 50 lbs n only lost 40. Started this pregnancy at 145. I was 125 when I met DH.

My son was born at 40 weeks and 3 days and was only 6 lbs 14.9 oz my daughter was about a few days shy of my due date and she was a c section baby and she was 9 lbs 4.7 oz. If I do get a vaginal and I go overdue I'm looking at a big baby!

oh my gosh...... that is exactly it. I am having a hard time already. the first thing my mom and sister's said was you're going to go crazy! Haha I'm so used to being active and always doing something so it's definitely difficult to scale back. my son is an angel. I honestly don't know how I got so lucky. he is super easy and knows mommy can't pick him up which I don't do much anyway. he just goes with the flow. I have some pay days for him set up where he can go play with cousins while I stay in. but he relieves a lot of my stress oddly.

Ugh! We caught the kids jumping in their beds again. DH takes their box springs downstairs and then starts going to take their beds apart. He said that if they don't want to stop jumping then they can sleep on the floor.



He got pissed at me when I said that its a bit too extreme to just take them apart like this. He's like "fine, let them jump, fall off and break something." He puts the box springs back on and storms downstairs.



I don't know what to do. This isn't helping with my hormones going all over the place. I want them to stop jumping, I just don't know how to do it. And now DH is going to be pissy all weekend.

So is he a bit older then? It was hard with my son being 19 months when I was on bed rest with my daughter even though he was really good. But when I was often in bed with #3 he was 4 and extremely helpful, I really did need to have him around.

How old are they? Are they jumping on the top of the bunk bed?

oh wow... at 19 months old it would of been tough with him. He's 3.5 so he's easy. I'm nervous for this baby to be polar opposites and a handful for me. that's crazy you have been on bed rest with more than one pregnancy. I can't imagine. I'm already counting down the days to 28 weeks. :)

honestly they are not going to break something jumping off of a twin bed that i am guessing is 2ft off the floor? its drastic to take their beds away, there should be a better method of discipline- because just removing them isn't truly teaching them... when are they doing it? like night time? nap time?
you're DH sounds like he has a bit of a short temper- i would let his reaction go until he decides to apologize or cool down..my Dh used to be that way- until he learned it really doesn't work in his favor (the kids respect us more when we are stern but not irrational)
are their favorite toys you can take away? or perhaps if they get to watch a movie at night before bed take that away every day they do it? or no sweet treats (like fruit snacks)...

Everytime to catch them jumping have him pick a toy out and throw it away thats what we had to do with my ds cause hed even taken his bed of the box spring throwig away the toys has worked for me
