Oh, Stacy, I am so sorry to hear you are dealing with so much and feeling this way. I'm just going to throw out a few ideas and hopefully other will chime in -
Please make some time to sit down with your husband to explain how you are feeling. Can you make any other childcare arrangements with their mom until you deliver and the the first few weeks you are home with the new baby? Can your mom help out on the weekends? Can your husband carpool with someone?
Maybe think about changing up the routine when the kids are at your home. Plan ahead and have structured time for play, movies, craft. Try to get into a different routine. Your husband can even "pack" lunches before he leaves for work. (We do this during the summer, I work from home and it is difficult when you have LO's at home.)
Rest during movie time. Exhaust them during play time by have them run around outside. Involve the kids in getting ready for there new sibling.
Please try to get some rest and sleep for yourself, you just may need to escape to your parents house. Take some time to "Bliss out" and relax with this guide.
Please keep us posted on how you are doing, ElizabethView Thread
A new policy statement from the American Academy of Pediatrics says pediatricians should routinely talk to their teen patients about emergency birth control and write them prescriptions so they can quickly get them if needed.
