Im so tired I think Im gonna fall over!

If I make it through today I will be lucky. Yesterday I had a dr.'s appointment in the morning for a glucose test, went to work straight after, picked up my daughter from kindergarten, dragged her back to the office with me to finish some calls, dropped her off at my moms so I could attend a 2 hour board meeting, and finally, the day was done at 8:30 pm.I came home, cleaned out the bathrooms, the kitchen, got my daughter ready for bed, and took care of the other 5oo thousand things that I needed to do around the house. I even did the stupid litter pan which IM not supposed to because my husband puts it off until it stinks so bad I feel like Im going to throw up. I emptied it, scrubbed it out, scrubbed the area it was in, refilled it and sprayed the whole area down with lysol. I was so tired and irritated that hubby and I had an argument around 10:30 that night, putting me in bed at 12:30, having to get up at 7. I have had NO sleep. Yesterday the doctor told me to store up on sleep as I need it to which I replied with "I dont have time!!!!". My body feels terrible. My back hurts, I have dark circles around my eyes, I feel like Im falling asleep here in my office chair, my voice is cracking, I had heartburn so bad this morning that I thought i would throw up, and I want to cry. But I am finally gaining some weight. Im at the tail end of my 6th month, and I was having trouble gaining enough weight. Well, I just doubled my weight gain over the last month, which is a very good thing. doctor seemed pleased with that. But my hubby just called and he is upset because Im miserably tired and I guess I kinda blame him and he feels like he's getting picked on. At least he doesnt feel like this!!! Im ready to fall over. Literally. Why cant he understand how physically and emotionally demanding things have been for me and understand that when pregnant, it all goes double! Argh!! Plus, now my husband is simply chalking it all up to him being the victim of my fluctuating hormones. Sometimes I wonder why I married him because things are ten times as hard and I have a million more things to do. I thought being married would be a help--you know: " hey honey I can tell you are very tired how about I help out a little with the kids and house". Yeah, right!!!!

Re: Im so tired I think Im gonna fall over!

Hey there, don't know much about you, but would it help if I told you I think EVERY mom/wife has been in your shoes??? I think (hope) your hubby will have his days where he is not wrapped up in himself too far too see he needs to pay more attention to the things that are REALLy hard on you!! My husband of 6 years (and 2 kids) brought me FLOWERS yesterday!! The first time in YEARS it seemed like! Hang in there, Lady, it will get better!!!!!

Re: Im so tired I think Im gonna fall over!

Hey there! I feel so bad for you. I know about the tired part. I have a teething 6 month Im sick and have morning sickness from [email protected]!! My hubby always starts off on this "oh you are just emotional" crap. Doesn't he realize he could help with SOMETHING?? I am completely in the same boat. At least I have a great doc who asks how I feel emotionally as well as physically and gets on to my hubby for not being completely sweet, generous, loving, affectionate..etc. Hang in really will get better(after the postpartum hormones even out!!LOL!!)

PS Large quantities of chocolate seem to help!! <IMG SRC="">

Smile, life doesn't last that long.
