My wife is pregnant and breast feeding a 7month old child.Any consquences?

Breast feeding : Breast feeding while pregnant is fine as long as she is eating enough extra calories to both make milk and allow the fetus to grow. Pre-natal vitamins will be important as well. You wife may or may not notice a decrease in supply. By 7 months your baby should be on other foods in addition to breast milk which will help as well.

Should i tell my kid that he/she was conceived through iui, if my wife and i get pregnant through iui?  I'm embarassed we can't get pregnant naturally

Eventually: I don't think most kids are going to want to know how they are conceived. If you want to it's fine, but i know i haven't gone into great detail with my kids, and don't plan to. When they are older and if they are curious, it could be an interesting conversation, but when they are younger they are likely not to understand. ...Read more

Pregnancy: There are multiple reasons for difficulty conceiving. Generally it is considered to be a problem if a couple has been regularly having intercourse around ovulation time for 6 months. It is positive that you have been able to have children before. If it has been more than 6 months for you, then it is worth having both you and your partner evaluated. Good luck to you. ...Read more
