I've been feeling blue. I only have 2.5 weeks left until i'm due, and these past few days, i've been finding myself on the verge of tears randomly (I know there are a ton of hormones involved). I barely sleep and wake up in the middle of the night thinking something horrible has happened to my baby, my other daughter (almost 15 months) is going through a cranky stage, she's teething and starting to have tantrums when she doesn't get her way and on top of it all, my husband works nights, so he sleeps during the day and I can't just randomly take a break and get some extra sleep that I so desperately need. I'm also trying to do 2 university courses this semester, which isn't helping with stress levels. Mostly I need to vent I think, I don't feel that my husband actually understands how hard it is to be doing what i'm doing even though he tries.
I can't wait to deliver because when I do he gets 5 weeks off, and can finally be around and helping out, and i'm really anxious to meet my little one, I swear these dreams that something is going wrong are really getting old, I want to count her little fingers and toes and know for sure that everything is fine. Last time i was so happy and excited, this time i'm happy and excited, but it's so far inside even I can't see it most times. Hopefully this feeling passes soon, I really don't want to get post-partum depression!
