My son is 17 months old. He will be 18 months Sept. 2nd. He has been fussy ALL DAY! I have given him food, drinks, had him watching movies, played with him, kept him in a clean diaper, gave him tynol, played music for him. It started at 10 am today, and he is still at it now at 10:30 pm! I tried holdin him too. Nothing is working! He is driving me crazy. I am about to pull my hair out! I am tired and sore, working all day around the house cleaning. I did not sleep well last night at all. I am at my wits end.
I FINALLY got him calmed down and he is getting sleepy. He is sitting in his crib watching tv, drinking milk, and eating a hot dog. It is now 11:10 pm. Sheeesh!
My husband works from 7 am to 3:30 every day. Most days he works late though. Like today he did not get off till like 5 pm. I was so stressed out from the baby when he got home. I have been told I am not allowed to have a baby shower for my daughter because it is not normal to do so. Most people my age, if they have a boy or girl already and have another baby of the other sex they have a baby shower. I mean I don't have anything for a girl. I want to have a baby shower, but am not allowed to. So I am having to go through ALL his old clothes he has outgrown and find things I can use for her. It is tough to do. I have no idea what she can wear that is his. I don't have a clue what size she will be when she comes out. I am done though, I got it all done tonight. I have been working on it for about 2 weeks now. He had ALOT of clothes. I am not due till Nov 28th thank goodness, but I am trying so hard to make sure I have everything I need for her. My husband is not very helpful at all. I am doing it all on my own. He is such a pack rat too. I told him I had a few things I wanted to sell, and he blew up. We had a terrible fight tonight, and he left. i have a lot of things too, and i'd like to toss some things. Because we are married he says "well your stuff is my stuff now, and I don't want to toss it" We are running out of space we have so much! We look like those people on the hoarders show. I can't keep living like this! I told him tonight I am so stressed out, and being pregnant and stressed don't mix. I told him to make a choice, it is either me and the kids or the stuff. He told me " well have a nice life" Can you believe that! What am I gonna do? Please pray for me, I am about to just walk away from it all.
