Hi, my daughter was 20 months when my youngest was born and I kept her involved from early pregnancy, she listened to babies heartbeat with me I brought a doppler with 2 earphones and we would lay in bed and do it together. When baby was born I encouraged her to help me, she would be with me when I fed little one and when I changed nappies she would be ther and would take it upon herself each time to put nappy in the bin. She is now 3 and my youngest is 16 months and they get on lovely and she still likes to help. I am also pregnant with number 3 due in july and have been doing the same with both of them.
I hope this helps xx

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
