Hello My husband is on board with me getting prego!!! But most people I say anything to ask me if I am ok?/ Do you really want to do this??


I have two children ds 4 mild hearing loss and a dd 3 moderate hearing loss with hearing aids!!


I would have had a 3rd a long time ago if i was not for my husbands brain surgery my daughter having a few issues!! Everyone is doing great now and it si time!! i want baby to be born in sep, oct ,nov. So that my older kids can still have there summers of fun not a postpartum mommy who can't take them anywhere. I will have another c section. Not a choice after two!!!


Any suggestions on what to say to people??

Hi i just happened to read your post curious what it was about and u got my attention with the hearing loss! My dd whos 4 also has a mild hearing loss and a moderate hearing loss in the other ear. It kills me to even say this, i dont tell everybody about this. Im not ashamed of it, i just feel terrible about it and blame myself for it. She also has hearing aides, but she despises them and i have to admit i do too... so i cant get her to wear them. She says they hurt her ears, and they do sound really loud! So ive talked to the audologist or whatever they are called and she says they are not, and i dont know. We have had many many arguments on all this stuff. They are constantly lecturing me and making me feel bad cuz i dont make her wear them, but i know she can hear quite a bit and wonder if their wrong on a certain extent. How did you find out about your kids hearing loss, do they have a speech delay, how do you get them to wear their hearing aides, and etc??????????? Ive never met anyone else with this complication and would love to get some advice if you wouldnt mind?!!

I feel the same way, but for a different reason. I have 4 children already, I'm 26 and look young, so people ALWAYS have something to say to me about my 4 children.


I can only imagine what it'll be like when I'm pregnant again! Truth is, I am just excited about this baby/pregnancy as I wsa for the first, second, third and fouth.


My mom and I just got into a fight b/c she was telling some family members that I may be pregnant

Hi there-


I have also been experiencing a lack of support.
