Pregnant with older children Lock Rss

Has anyone had problems with their older children playing up while your pregnant? I have a five and six year old boy. All they do is fight and cry and scream. It’s so hard to get a minute peace and when I’m not feeling too flash I get a bit anxious and angry. How do you control your emotions while your pregnant while handling older children. I’m not shy in saying I am struggling and it’s only week 4!
Hey there! I just came across your post. I hope everything is going fine on your side. Firstly, Congratulations to you on your third pregnancy! Can I please say how lucky and blessed you are? Although I'm sorry that you're having a hard time managing stuff. Secondly, I can give you some tips on how I managed my child when I was expecting another one. My friend told me to hire a nanny for my son, but unfortunately, I wasn't able to afford it back then. If you can afford a nanny, that's really a relief! But if you can't then ask your husband to give some of his time to the boys. Keep each of them busy in different activities and don't let them sit together. Try and make food available to them all the time so that they don't feel cranky because of hunger and cry. Be a little strict on them so that they don't scream uselessly and be afraid that you'd scold them. Make them understand that you're not well so they have to behave. I'm sure this will help you. All the best!
Hey firstly congratulations on your pregnancy. I can understand your feelings. However, just be prepared for more craziness. Kids are like that. You will get used to of it very soon. You just have to deal with them with calmness. Best of luck with your pregnancy. I hope everything goes smoothly.
Hey there Dear. I am really happy for you. Elevated emotions are very natural during this time. I know how things can get hard. However, you can do certain exercises to help you calm down. I wish you good luck. I hope you get what you want. take care and lots of love.
Congrats on your pregnancy first of all. Well, yeah! That happens! Stay strong! I understand that's getting harder. Just ask someone to help them/ babysit them. Stay stress-free! Keep going! Wish you all the best!
Hello. First of all, congratulations. This is great news. Kids like yours are very moody at this age. They would get cranky because of the smallest things. It is going to be hard to deal with this during your pregnancy. But you are strong enough. I'm sure you can do it. Get your husband to help out. Good luck with it.
