Feeling like a bad Mommy lately

Being pregnant, working full time and taking care of a toddler is driving me crazy!!! Stephen has been acting up alot lately, not eating dinner, refusing to go to bed, and just being stubborn with alot of things. DH is dealing with it better then I am, maybe it is my pregnancy hormones and just being so TIRED!!! I have a very short fuse lately. I feel bad because I want to spend quality time with Stephen before baby brother arrives, but he is making it very hard. Anyone else have this issue when they are pregnant????

Raises both hands.. Me Me Me.. Joshua is giving us the same hard times about everything, I have less then a week left and I am really trying to control my temper with him. DH is also not helping.. He already has a very short fuse so it just adds to it.

I don't remember what it was like with Lexi when I was preggo with Zayne but I do know that right now my temper is SHORT! I'm always exhausted so I don't ever have the energy to play after work. I do feel like a bad mom most nights because I'm so crabby.

glad I am not the only one! THis pregnancy has been more painful with many more symptoms and doc visits. Baby boy has dilated renal pelvis(pyelectasis) so we have had ultrasounds since 20 weeks (every 4 weeks). Docs say it is common, esp in boys. IT can resolve before birth, and last ultrasound it was better. I made the mistake of googling it and it is a soft marker for Downs. All of my screenings were fine and my OB said if it is the only marker, there is not reason to worry. But I still do. It makes me really stressed.

I am starting to swell alot and being outside is miserable, even if it is a nice day. So DH spends alot of time with him. I feel like I am missing out Sad

I'm not pregnant and feel the same way with Russ. Those days that I already have a short fuse he really pushes me to the brink. If I can actually take a step back and cool off then it can get better. Sadly I hardly ever get that break. There are so many nights where I just want to cry. I miss my babies and yet when I'm with them I feel like I'm not getting quality time with them.

YEP , I'm pretty sure I tried to give Everett away a few times. I think that some of it is the toddlers anticipating the big change. Everett had horrible behavior leading up to the baby and being in constant pain, my patience was thin. Hang in there, it eventually gets better on both counts.

As we get more and more baby stuff out, I think he knows things are going to change in a couple of months big time. He is also misbehaving at school, and he is normally VERY good there, much better than at home!! Like today he refused to go wash his hands and go to the snack table. He sat on the floor and pouted and took off his shoes and socks! WTH??? He is usually a fair listener but he is getting really bad at that too. At home and at school.
