But I really do need a big fat hug right now.<br><br>
Maybe it's pregnancy hormones, maybe it goes deeper, but I'm just sitting here on my couch in tears. It's relationships and old relationships and the past and the future and even sometimes the present all rolled up into one and today for some reason it just *really hurts*.<br><br>
I have a feeling you all will be finding me hanging out on the PPD boards very soon.

I went through that when I was pregnant with DD. Today I cried cause DH had to go to work and I didn't want him too. It happens. When I was pregnant with DD I thought baout all my past and present relationships and had a good cry about them.. There is no leeching. It is ok.

It might just be hormones, but it is also very likely feelings that need to come out and be acknowledged. I hope you have someone nearby that you can talk to. Or gab away here.

I was having a very hard time emotionally the the last months of my first pregnancy. There was all kinds of drama and I felt very alone and needy. Having my son turned things right around, it was just such a joy to finaly have my baby! Hang in there and know that there are a lot of us pulling for you.

I'm right there too...my dh & I had a "conversation" a few days ago & he revealed that how angry he was about me not getting 'anything' done -- grocery shopping & laundry (his work clothes) being the two biggies. Those are my jobs (for real, he has other chores) and I have been slacking; but if he was just the tiniest bit affectionate or didn't talk only negatively about the upcoming birth/baby I might be happier/more motivated, ya know?<br><br>
I swear a part of me died inside when I said that I was really needing a little affection & his response was that "well lately I don't really feel affectionate." And that was that. I'm not going to force him to hug me & hold me. I'll just be alone. Again. Funny, I thought when I got married I wouldn't have to be lonely.

You're such a doll, Liz; I'm hoping that this business trip gave him a bit of time to relax & he'll chill out a bit. Otherwise I think a good, swift kick in the butt might be in order. I sooo look forward to having ya'll over every week though; it's my bit of sanity. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Deux; how are you today?

a little bit better...<br><br>
took a few steps to get rid of some extra things that were stressing me out, and finally heard from the midwife today, so I'm not mw-less anymore.<br><br>
still a bit bummy, because job-related disappointments keep coming up as well as other things, but all in all today was a decent day.<br><br>
how about you?
