Hi everyone, my name is Alexandria and i was 23 weeks pregnant and i have an almost 4 year old son. I am very emotional these day and extrememly stressed out. I work full time and then have to come home and take care of my son and hubby - leaving no time for me.
I feel like all i do is clean and work and work and clean. Oh and grumble at my hubby and son cause they get on my nerves sometimes. Now its saturday and i finally have the day off and what to i have to spend the day doing - CLEANING. I got a ton of laundry to do everywhere needs and good clean and tidy because all i have time for through the week is just the general stuff. I am so frustrated and completely sick of feeling bitchy and stressed out cause i can't keep my dam house clean. On top of that this week i have had the flu and my son has been really sick so i have been getting no sleep. Today my son is feeling much better - just kinda whiny and stuff and he is completely getting on my nerves. A few minutes ago i just put a movie on for him so i could go to the bathroom and cry (didnt know what else to do). Is it normal that i feel this way? Am i am terrible mother? I just cant help but wonder what all this stress and emotions is doing to my unborn child.
Anyone have any suggestions on how to make myself feel a little less terrible? Or if anyone wants to share their story about how stressed their live is i would be glad to here about it. I would just like some encouragement from women that know what i am going through or have been through something similar or are living through something much worse and can tell me to suck it up cause there are always people out there way worse off then the rest of us.
Thanks in advance ladies! (feels good to let that out)
