<p>I woke up feeling completely bombarded with "Mommy!" "Mommy, I need!" "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy, Mommy".  AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!  I'm not a morning person anyway but didn't sleep well last night and just couldn't handle all the needs of everyone this morning.  I hurt my pelvis a week or so ago and am in pain.  I took the dog out and she pulled me the wrong way and I'm hobbling now.  I sat on the kitchen floor and cried and cried.  I got up to take a shower and cried more in there.  I'm sitting here sobbing.  I'm in pain, but not enough to be like this.  I guess I'm just hormonal.  :(  I'm not liking this.</p>

<p>I was a COMPLETE wreck Tuesday.  I did too much Monday, and was exhausted, so that was part of it.  But I came in from getting the laundry off the line, and just started absoluely bawling.  Part of it was that I was in a tank top and shorts and was still hot and the mosquitoes were viscious and all my hatred of Florida just came out in one fell swoop.  Whew.  I cannot believe how much I cried, then sobbed with DH on the couch for a while, then cried some more in the shower on my own.  I gave myself a headache!  I haven't had a meltdown like that in a while, so it actually felt kind of good to cry that much (once I was done crying) but it didn't change the way I felt about things, and FL, at all, of course.  I'm glad DH was home to sit with me and calm me down, or I totally would have lost it. </p>

<p>Ah, at this rate, I can hardly wait for the postpartum hormonal storm!</p>

<p> I have been very emotional and crying a lot, too. I honestly think some of it must be hormones, because sometimes I don't even know what I'm crying about.</p>

<p>This was me yesterday. <img alt="hug.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/hug.gif"> I figure it definitely is hormones and just being "done." It's so hard when simply going to the library to get some new books with the boys does me in for the day. I'm not used to having so little energy; I'm sleeping so much worse than I had been (which had been not very good anyway), and I'm just done. Thankfully dh has all of next week off, and then I'm "due" the following week, so I'm hoping there's a light at the end of this tunnel sooner rather than later. (Though I also think some of my upset stems from remembering being 12 days "late" with ds#3 (ds#1 was 2 days early and ds#2 was right on time); I can't imagine going another 3 1/2 weeks right now.) </p>

<p>I was feeling frustrated from the minute I woke up yesterday too. My daughter woke me up by standing next to my bed and whining "I need cereal RIGHT NOW" then she spend the day puking and making demands for this and that so I was running after her and cleaning vomit all day. I washed the carpets 3 times between her puking my my son deciding to pee all over the floor, right beside the potty. Meanwhile I have a tummy bug too and hardly had time to go to the bathroom with everyone constantly needing something from me. Even the cats were like sirens going off, constantly crying and stepping in front of me every time I tried to walk anywhere.</p>
<p>I really needed a big melt down, but it never came. I needed to just sob and cry but I didn't, and it's left me feeling worse. Like toxic today. I need that release. When it does come it's going to be big! A good cry can be so healthy and helpful. It's not nice to feel vulnerable and broken, but it's healthy and healing and good.</p>
<p>I'm sorry your pelvis is still hurting. I hoped it would get better. It is so very difficult to cope with a sore pelvis, I've been there. I really feel for you.</p>

What is WITH that?!? (I'm dealing with the same stuff - 2 year old, dirty, stink-loving dog, and a husband who wants to know what's for dinner, etc, etc) Our not-quite two year old has also suddenly stopped sleeping. Seriously. She's up from about 12 - 4am, every. stinkin'. night. I cry a lot. It's unfortunate. I feel bad for the people around me, but mostly I just feel bad for myself! (embarassing!). Can't wait to meet this babe and start being "normal" again. hahaahaha - a whole new normal, that is!<br>

<p>I woke up in disbelief I have two other small human beings to take care of.....I started to see a therapist after delivery because I was depressed.  The best advice I got was to take 1 day a week ONLY for yourself.  Get a babysitter to come and watch the kids and don't feel guilty, you deserve it.  I have done that every week and I can't tell you what a difference it makes.</p>
