I'm feeling totally overwhelmed. My husband will be out of town for 7 days. We have a very active 1 year old and I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant with morning sickness hell on and off all day.

How do women do this??? I feel so down and hormonal and wondering how I'm going to make it being mom 24/7.

Any tips?? I have made some plans during the week to make sure we get out and see people. ☺️

Moms reach out and ask for help. How "overwhelmed" are you? If it is extreme then ask for help and make sure you get it. Once when I had a stomach virus and couldn't care for my daughter while my husband was out of town, I called my neighbor and she took that child all day Sunday and INSISTED on taking off work Monday (she said they wouldn't care she never has missed work in her life so they would be fine with it). She didn't have children and I could tell she really enjoyed the responsibility. I will never forget her kindness, but I have rescued other Mom's too. Find someone you trust and ask for help. If you can afford to pay for help then pay and if you can't just find a friend or neighbor. You aren't going to let anything happen to that 1 year old but ask for help.
