Okay lets start with I have 1 daughter who is only 1 and another on the way in November which is technically right around the corner. My kids father and I are engaged and he also has a daughter that was 1 when I came into the picture she is now 4. We are stressing over finding a bigger house because we feel like we have no more room, my mother and him DOES NOT get along at all. She keeps telling me that I need to leave him, being that he is the father of my kids, I could possibly not. I know we argue a lot, but part of the reason why I don't let my mom in on the arguments is because the first thing she'll say is that I should leave. On top of that, my 1 year old has to have surgery in November because her adenoids are too big. Then completely following that, my due date for this baby is Nov 29th. Then, my daughter just got extremely sick, runny nose and coughing that doesn't want to go away. And now my grandmother is back and forth to the hospital!!!! What to do? I am 34 weeks pregnant, and I am beyond stressed out. I have so much going on in my life right now that all I want to do is just cry and scream out loud. I am not getting sleep at night because my daughter is constantly keeping me up now that her condition has gotten worse. Then on top that, my family gets upset when I don't go and visit my grandmother in the hospital!!!!!!!!!!!!! But gosh I do call her to check up on her, and NO one wants to listen to the fact that I have so much going on in life right now that I just want to rest.

Thank you guys so much because I really needed to hear that. I think I am soo caught up into pleasing everyone else that I completely forgot about myself. And Angela Rose I definitely need to refer to the Bible more often. Ive tried to start reading a few scriptures when i wake up in the morning because I know that is the only thing that will lighten my day. Thanks so much I will refer to those also.

You need to be selfish and take time for yourself. I know from personal experience with my second one that if you have outside factors stressing you out and you are too busy fixing everyone elses problems, bad things happen. Take time for yourself, roll around in bed for awhile and when you aren't tired anymore, you will have a much more clear and focused mind to help you set your priorities. To be the best mom, partner, daughter and granddaughter that you can be, you need to take care of yourself.
Also, after tour baby is born, if you still feel all this stress, seek professional help soon. I let it go, and go and go until it completely messed me up and 18 months later I still feel like 1/2 a person. My best advice is put yourself first. - and don't feel guilty about it!

Life can be so overwhelming at times and when you're pregnant your hormones and senses are heightened. I don't normally do this but this was the first thing that came to mind when I read your post...."Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest"......Matthew 11:28-30.
Also...
Jeremiah 6:16----stand at the crossroads and look; ask for where the good way is, and walk in it, you will find rest for your souls.
