Short Fuse

I have one today. Last night was horrible for sleep and I'm ready to scream. We got two decent nights and now we're back to crap. The sound machine I ordered from Amazon should come today, so hopefully that will help B sleep more soundly. Why is it the days I could totally use a break are the days I won't be getting one at all? B has preschool Tuesdays & Thursdays, so I get 2 precious hours to rest or get stuff done around the house. Today is Friday, so no downtime. And then I have to work tonight. Until 9:30pm.

Sometimes I feel like I sound so selfish, always complaining about the sleep I'm not getting. But I'm so tired ... I just want to lay in bed and rest. And it's not going to happen ever again.

You are almost nine months pregnant, you can complain every day, it is exhausting! I will listen to you complain every day because I think being pregnant is torture, AND there is never any possible way to get the sleep that you need, BLAH! Hang in there! XOXO

This is just my experience, but I think one child is emotionally exhausting. Everything you do is for that one person and it just gets old. When we added our second child when our first was 2, life surprisingly seemed easier and less monotonous. Now, you can't give #1 everything they want and they understand that pretty quickly. You sound just like I felt before having my #2! Good luck! (I also had an emergency cesarean and then a planned one for the second.) The planned cesarean was soo easy.

Oh, thank you for the encouraging words. I'm hopeful that the 2nd baby brings about positive changes instead of more overwhelming feelings. Everyone asks if I'm excited and honestly I'm just scared out of my mind.
