Thanks, JustJenny and Tspencer. I definitely won't take it personally if she needs to keep her distance from me. I emailed her sister and their mom has been able to be there with her for the past week. I remember with my molar pregnancy how bitter and sad I felt, especially when everyone due my month was announcing it. I had to remind myself that I didn't know what kinds of struggles they may have been through on the way to their pregnancies.
JustJenny--sorry you had to fire your midwife! I hope the new practice is what you need. And morning sickness till 20 weeks, wow. At the end of the day you will end up with your baby in your arms, and I hope the rest of your journey there is less stressful. Do you have a doula? Maybe knowing you have an advocate besides your partner and your care provider would help?
So the sh***y things just keep happening--we found out last night that a good friend of ours, a bike blogger/bicycling advocate, was struck by a car and is in critical condition in the ICU. The guy who hit him fled the scene (claimed he thought he hit a bag of trash) and had to be chased down by witnesses. Turns out he was drunk, and it was his second DUI in less than a month. And it was 11 in the morning on a Sunday. WHO IS DRUNK AT 11 AM? I'm so grateful our friend is alive, but so sad thinking about the long recovery and trauma he has ahead of him, plus what his wife must be going through.
And our 2-year-old is going through major tantrums lately. It's taken forever to get out the door in the morning because she goes ballistic when we try to get her dressed, give her the wrong thing for breakfast, etc. It's very frustrating. That on top of bedtime stalling means my husband and I are both feeling pretty defeated. My SSRI ran out a couple days ago and I haven't been sleeping much--broke down in tears at work today.
Anyone ever feel like you just need the world to stop for a few days so you can lie around in your pajamas?
