I want to start off by saying, I feel bad that I don't update as often as I should. I am much more active on facebook and on mobile phone and what not. I have just been so busy with work and appointments for myself and my daughter. I recently had my 35 week appointment last Thursday and I am now on to weekly appointments! yay everything with him looked good, except he is still breech :/ I am trying to do things to get him to turn now and I pray he does. My doctor said that if he does not turn by 37 weeks, then she will try ECV with him.
I am so happy that this pregnancy is coming to a close. I have not enjoyed it one bit because pregnancy just doesn't seem to agree with my body. I will be much happier to have baby Logan here and hopefully to work on getting myself feeling back to normal. I am very anxious about the baby coming and how it's going to change my family and how I am going to feel, being that I am certain I had postpartum depression/anxiety after the birth of my daughter..
well I have always had anxiety just have never seen anyone about it and it elevated after my daughter was born because I was always afraid something would happen to her. I never saw anyone about this because I don't want to be put on any medication I'd rather try to cope/work through things myself and there are other cans of worms I would rather not open in seeing someone. PLUS I won't have insurance after my 6 week check unless I change jobs to a job that has insurance or go back to school for a third degree, which I want to do if I can't still find a job in my career field.
I am just so excited to give Chloe a sibling. I think it will be really good for her. Of course, I worry about how she will react but more than anything I would have hated for her to be an only child.
Honestly, all I can think about is having Logan and all the things I need to jump back into and losing all this baby weight. I just have so much going on. I am exhausted. I know I work too much. I work a regular 40 hour work week but, when it's available, I pick up overtime because I never know when it will be available or not.. the past couple of weeks I have worked 65-70 hour work weeks and I know I need to slow down because baby is coming and I definitely don't wanna go into labor at work. I feel terrible all the time but I feel like a failure if I am not providing like a good mom should. I get off work at midnight tonight and so this week I am back down to 49 hours for this week.. I have tomorrow off, which I will need to spend cleaning though and really sucking it up and preparing for baby. I have put everything off to last minute!
Anyway, everything is good though.. no signs of any early labor or anything.. just the braxton hicks.. but I am not too worried. I had my daughter at 39 weeks 1 day and so my doctor doesn't seem to concerned either and says I can continue on how I am. How is everyone else?? I am soo pumped to see there are some signs of labor and even a few babies!! WOO here we go!!
I'm glad you're doing well in general and excited for your baby boy! I hope you don't have the same problems with anxiety that you had before and I will be praying that you can get a job that gives you insurance and also lets you make the money you need without having to work such crazy hours. You need more of a break for your sanity! Let us know how job/insurance things work out!
I agree with what Lyndsey said. Some exact worries I have with this baby's don't want to feel like I neglect the girls. You are a bright, smart, intelligent, career driven woman! I have not a doubt you will balance this whole new family dynamic out! So glad to hear that you and baby are doing so well!!
