By the end of the day, I feel frazzled and chock full of pent up feelings and thoughts. I don't want to let all that out on my kids or my husband -- and I hate it when I do -- so do you know any ways to get rid of this stuff without exploding?!
From the moment you bring your baby home from the hospital, you begin to undergo more life changes than probably ever before. As your baby's life begins, a new life also begins for you. As countless others have told you, "your life will never be the same again".
It's common for a mom to be lying awake in bed while her baby or toddler is snoozing blissfully. Unfortunately, low quantity and poor quality (= depth) of sleep erode a mother's health and well-being, and give her a strong shove down the slippery slope toward depression.
Ah, pregnancy insomnia again. Wonderful. The weirdest thing is that I am really tired, but the minute I lay down, my eyes are wide open and I can't sleep. So I guess I'll just dither around until I'm super-exhausted!
This made me laugh because it's been 6 WEEKS since I've seen them, I haven't had my GD test ordered (which they would've had to do at my 24 week appointment), and they never scheduled me to be seen twice a week since I entered the third trimester. And it's just NOW occurring to them to call me?
