Adjusting

Having a second child is not easier than the first for sure. Why did I even think it? It's starting all over again!

Not to mention I'm going crazy being at home all day. Do any of you feel the same way?? I'm used to working and not being at home all the time. Even before Lucas we usually had something going on during the weekends. Shah! Definitely don't want to go back to work yet though. I'm so tired some days.

I am going to ignore the first part and act blissfully unaware for my last few weeks of pregnancy and think it is going to be easy-ish (even though really I know otherwise Wink )....

But perhaps a trip to the park, or something could help to curb the trapped in the house feeling?

And having a 3rd child is even harder Smile I'm trying to go with the flow but definitely have many moments of complete meltdown.

I am also not a homebody BUT I am LOVING being home right now (I think prob because I knwo it's not forever!). I love not having to be anywhere (other than get the kids to and from school). Will be back to work and daycare drop off before I knwo it so trying not to rush it away....

I hear ya on being stuck at home part. I take the baby to the park almost everyday. Helps me feel like a normal person. I really need to get some shopping done but I haven't braved that without dh yet. I do love not having to get up and rush around for work though. Work sounds impossible right now.

Ditto to all of the above. By the time I get done feeding Emmy in the morning, changing her, making breakfast for me and Jack and cleaning up, changing Jack, then feeding Emmy again, it is already 11am or so and time to make lunch and go down for naps. If I can barely manage that, there is no way I can leave the house with both of them. Jack is a terror when we leave the house too, so even our trips out with DH have been horrendous. He is why someone invented kid leashes. I haven't bought one yet, but am seriously considering it. In the meantime, I will just stay at home. I have had thoughts about going back to work in the fall, but then I feel guilty for not wanting to stay home. Most of me wants to stay home and be able to BF and make sure Emmy is taken care of well for her first year before she goes to daycare, but some days I am so frustrated I feel like I would be happier going to work. Other than these feelings, I have been feeling completely even. I am usually an anxiety ridden crazy person, but I have been unusually calm. Hopefully, I can hold on to that. Biggrin

Definitely find ways to get out of the house! I stay home a little bit more now that I have lots of kiddos that entertain each other well, and we have to do school at some point, but when they were small we left a LOT... well we still do quite a bit of errands/field trips leaving the house! Is there a library story time or something like that, that you could go to?

Laurie, I don't like getting out with him too much just yet. He's fine in the coarsest when he sleeps but hates it if he's awake lol but I've started going to visit my mom more often now to get out Smile
