So I'm 37 going on 38 I have a 3 1/2 yr old and I'm 10 weeks pregnant. I'm tired, crabby and very emotional. I was on anti depressents and meds for anxiety but had to stop, I also had to stop smoking. I'm so tired and feel like, an I crazy! What was I thinking? ! Then I feel Happy, Happy my son will have a sibling. Happy that my family will expand. .. I don't recall all these emotions while pregnant with my first, nor do I recall being to tired, and I'm hungry! Does anyone relate?
I'm 39 going on 40 (probably before baby's born) and pregnant with my 3rd daughter. My first two are much older, though. I'm tired, crabby and very emotional, too. The teenager, the husband, the employer, the house, the bills - all need so much from me, so I know how you feel when you wonder if you're going crazy. Working and taking care of your family while pregnant can be very stressful. I wasn't on meds for anxiety before, but I have a feeling I should have been. If you were, I think it's important that you talk to your doctor about your concerns. Talking about it here is a great start, though. Keep your chin up and keep thinking those happy thoughts. I know firsthand how hard this is! Believe me, I'm very much looking forward to holding my new baby girl and enjoying that maternity leave with her.
