I'm 43 years old and just found out that I'm pregnant with our third child!!! Our youngest will be 10 by the time this one is born (I'm due at Thanksgiving) and our oldest will turn 15 in January.
My question is, where or what are the best resources right now? It's been so long since I've been pregnant that I don't know where to look. I greatly enjoyed "What to Expect When You're Expecting" the first time around. How is that for now? Anything better?
What should I be eating? or not eating? what about diet soda? I drink a lot of water when I'm pregnant, and I gave up diet soda for the last two, but I'm having a much harder time staying away this time around.
I haven't been to my doctor yet and probably won't until later in April -- He's hard to get an appointment with at first, but then it's easy.
We got rid of all the baby stuff when we moved 5 years ago, so we're going to need everything. Any recommendations? Keeping in mind we're on a pretty tight budget so many things will be second hand. Besides car seats, what should never be second hand? We will be having a large baby shower, but who knows what that will bring?
So, help! If you'd like.
