First Baby and stag party

Stacey - posted on 06/18/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




My partener and I are expecting our first baby in august. He has been asked to go on a 4day stag away foreign and has told me today he is going even though I have told I'm I'd like him to stay because if I go over due our baby will only be 3 weeks old when he is to go. I know that he is part of the wedding party and the groom is family. But now that he has said he's going I'm feeling overwhelmed at the thought of being on my own with a new born at home. I might have some help if my mum isn't in hospital herself at the time and his mum lives away from us.

I can totally understand where you are coming from. But in saying that my best advise to you would be to not focus on it too much now. Thinking about it now is only going to make you feel overwhelmed. By time baby is 3 weeks old you will have started to get into a routine and figured out a system. Not that you won't be tired and exhausted, but you will be able to make it through without him. Also 4 days is a long time, but yet it is also a short time. There are people that have to do it all on their own as a single parent. Or all on their own as their husband is deployed. They have much longer then 4 days that they have to get through. I am sure your husband feels like he is in a rock and a hard place....feeling pulled in both directions.
