I feel terrible about being so mia. I can honestly say I cannot wait for this to be over. This has been the worst pregnancy by far. I have decided to get a tubal when this precious baby is born and I cannot believe I am thinking that way. I never in a million years thought I would want to be done having kids but these past months have been just plain awful.
I have never been so sick while pregnant before. I also have next to no energy. I can hardle get a shower every other day and the amount of pain and contractions I have been having is just plain aggrevating!
On top of the physical issues we have way too much stress around here. We started a business feb 1st and thank God it is doing wonderful but dh is completely wrapped up in that. We are being wrongfully sued by his old company purely to try to run us out of business.
Also since I was so sick in bed we just cannot get this house back in order. We thought we would be in a different house by now and that is so terribly hard! We realized that selling this house and buying a new one at this time was not going to happen....so we are stuck! We are having the 6th baby and have 3 bedrooms and no basement. I cannot take the lack of space and am going nuts.
About 2 months back I was feeling pretty okay and decided for my mental health I needed to make changes in here, I needed a fresh look if I have to stay here for a few more years. So I gutted and redid the one bathroom the master bedroom and dd#1 s room. Then I started getting sick again.
As of now I have one dd's room and my room completed, small bath just needs sink installed and my boys room is almost done however I spent three days painting all of their furniture and its still sticky! I have to now strip it and paint it all over again...I could cry! We managed to get the family room and all the halls painted and thats where I sit. I have nothing back on the walls and it does not feel like a home. Also with it bieing so hot everyone is always in the house and it is a constant mess. I need to get so much organized and I have two children sleeping on the couch with no rooms and a baby coming soon. My girls start school in less then 2 weeks and I would like for them to have a room.
We have a MESS of a garage that needs to be cleaned out so my dad who is supposed to come down this week can put bedrooms in there. Again too hot to do anything! The big issue with my dad....... he has been living with my aunt in Michigan and once he comes down I don't know if he is ever leaving!!!
I am so angry about the way things are around here! I want so badly for things to be settled and be enjoying my last pregnancy even if I feel like total crap! I have not even begun to get anything ready for Hadd?n. We talk about him/her and think that we have a name but thats it! Other then looking at me you would never know a baby was coming. All this and I am supposed to bed on rest. I am told every time I go in that i need to not do anything because she is nervous that baby will come too early! Good thing I feel like such crap because I really cannot do much of anything any day.
Okay........FORGIVE me I amd So Sorry for venting so bad!!!
I need to actually try to get something done around here today..I so wish I had family that would come to my rescue but my mom has been here 2 days since feb and she lives an hour away!
K I am done.
I pray for all of you and cannot wait for a feww more weeks to go by and start seeing all your precious babies!!!
I hate that this is how things are during the pregnancy of my last precious baby
I'm so sorry you are going through all of that! I know all my mess is driving me crazy too! I lay in bed at night and make lists and the next day feel so bad I can't do any of it. I guess we'll just get everything in the whole world done after September. lol
I understand how u feel to some extent. I feel so unprepared. I feel like nothin is settled. However, this is only my first baby...I don't have a house full and all the other issues. My worst issue is my 35 year old junkie step brother has been asking me for money. I end up giving it to him even though I know he will spend it on bad things because if I don't his sorry self will go ask my mom and his dad for it and they really don't have it...or he will ask the 90 year old grandparents who are really sick (nope he has NO shame). He has been driving me nuts gaving me all these excuses about needin money for rehab and he wants to get better. I finally just said "stop lyin to me I'm not a moron". He annoys me because he doesn't take care of and hardly sees his 7 year old daughter...yet he talk aboout how much he loves her.
Ok well that's my only stress and urs is far worse lol. Its ok to vent..its healthy and that's what we are here for.
I'm sorry you are feeling so bad during your last pregnancy
It must be so hard on you to have an "unsettled" house, be on bed rest, and plus all of the issues with feeling sick!
I wish there was some advice I could give or a way to give you a REAL hug mama!
Hang in there and take care of yourself and baby!!
P.s. I LOVE your family picture!!! Your two girls on the left look exactly like you!!

Sorry that everything is so chaotic and stressful! I can imagine how difficult it would be to have to deal with all of this...even NOT pregnant! But add the crazy heat and being 8 months pregnant...I'm sorry, mama! It sounds awful. I hope things start to come together for you soon...just take it one step at a time.

I hope things come out in the end, Just a few more weeks to hang on with bedrest. Just do not over do it otherwise when I do I seem to feel worse. Good luck with the house and the garage it can be challenging. BTW. did you get your shower gift. If so I really hope it brightened your day a little!
