So, I know that I'm a crazy pregnant woman, but I'm already worried about stuff that is going to happen in April!!
I don't have anyone to watch DD for me, hence the reason she's been going to my appointments with me. I have severe trust issues. My family is 6 hours away, my IL's are old and sick, my SIL should be institutionalized and I wouldn't trust her to watch DD if someone offered me a million dollars to. I have no friends in town. I'm already terrified about who is going to care for her when I go into labor!! DH might not get to be there for the birth.
I'm also worried about caring for an 18 months old and a newborn by myself, especially if I have to have another c/s!
Tell me there are other crazy pregnant ladies out there already thinking about this stuff!
I'm not freaking yet BUT I'm also the queen of procrastination. LMAO! THe only thing I have been worrying about has been how I will deal with a 3 year old, 2 year old, and newborn all summer. Baby and I will have 3-4 weeks together before the other 2 are out of daycare for the summer. I figure it'll all work out in the end.
Not freaking out about what to do with DD, but I AM freaking out about work. I've got until April to train 3 of my co-workers to do my job while I'm gone. Last time I was out, I came back to so many problems and issues with people's pay. I can't stand the thought of doing that again. I know I will get calls every day while on leave, but I still don't want to come back to a complete mess!!!

We have alot of the same worries as you. With recently relocating 7 hrs away we have no clue what will go on with our other 2 children while I am in labor. My mom has offered to come here and keep the kids. I have always been induced and have a 90% chance this time being induced between 37-38 weeks there is a great chance we can have it planned out for her to come stay with us while the baby is being born and until I come home from the hospital. So we are pretty happy about it.
I'm not really worried or thinking about it yet but we totally have the same issues as you do. Don't really have anyone that can come and watch both of our kids, and trusted family is far away. I figure it will all work out and I can start planning for it in Jan.

Geeze, I would be stressed about that too! Could you arrange with someone in your family (like your mom or something) to stay with you for the week of your due date or something?
I'm not stressing about anything yet, but on my daughter's bad days the thought of "Ughh, how am I gonna do this when we have a newborn!?" DEFINITELY crosses my mind!
Ha ha I've been stressing secretly. I don't want DH to know yet!!!
I dunno how it's going to go because we live in another state than family and we have a few friends and only one or two that I would trust with the kids. I mainly just worry about leaving them with someone else. We also have the Marine Corps ball in 2 weeks and have to leave the kids with child care. I'm hoping that there will be too many kids there to distract the kids about me being gone. Esp my 2 year old!
But DH told me last week that he has a good chance of being a combat replacement in January but should be back for the birth. However, since we dunno any actual time lines of when he'd be back then we don't know for sure. He wants to go for the money, even though it's a possibly highly active combat zone. We discussed it and I support him.
So now I have that freaking out haha. But at the same time I just keep telling myself I'll make it through. My kids are pretty good. I just have to figure out who will watch them when I'm giving birth!

Do you have playgroups in your area? Maybe you can make some new friends and IF( i say that lightly) you feel comfortable maybe by the time baby comes you would have a little extra help. Things in the end will work out im sure!
