I have a 2 year old and i have been trying to toilet train her for a few months now. I know she is ready as she shows all the classic signs of being ready. At the very start she did a wee and a poo on the toilet and it was a very proud moment for me. Now i cant get her to sit on a toilet or potty at all it just ends up in a screaming fit. I have tried all sorts of things like stickers, dolly going potty too, rewards, i have tried to make it fun etc but she refuses to sit in any of them. I have even gone to the "no nappy" but my whole house is carpet and i am not in any way healthy shape or form to be scrubbing the carpet 7 times a day. I am 21 weeks pregnant with a serious complicated pregnancy, to which most days are so painful to even walk, my husband works away from home, i have no family or friends to help me at all, im still working, and im doing literally everything by myself. I dont know what else to do as i just feel like i am a major failure as her cousins etc that are younger than her are already toilet trained, and i know it isnt a race but i dont understand what i am doing wrong if she is ready, i cant handle to pain of disappointment in myself every time she doesnt or refuses to go.
Please help me
