Mommies, what are the 3 biggest challenges you have been facing so far? Preggos, what are your 3 biggest challenges/complaints so far?

As for me:
1. SLEEP DEPRIVATION-no doubt number one
2. Just learning to juggle two on my own, especially when I'm caring for Charlie and Marina needs me.
3. Not losing my patience with Marina as she adjusts. She has been super whiny and cries when she wants something instead of using her words to ask-super frustrating!

1. Learning to care for 2, esp when facing going back to work in a few weeks.
2. Deciding on a daycare... in-home or center? I don't know what to choose...
3. Running on less sleep. Just gotta get used to it!!

1. Chloe being a fussy eater
2. Her not burping well
3. Balancing time between caring for her and spending quality time with Bella. Jon is scared to death of newborns, so he is not much help watching her so I can do things with Bella.

Thank you, tasha_mae, for my very special siggy!

1. Leaky boobs - I feel like a milk waterfall! It's frustrating when I try to dress like a normal person and I just end up with boobstains no matter what.
2. Time management. P is absolutely zero help around the house, so it's all up to me as usual, but with way more laundry and less time and a fussy baby, I just can't keep up. And we're supposed to have a dryer by now, but P hasn't gotten around to picking it up, so I still have to hang all the clothes up in the cold basement, which is way more of a hassle than I need right now.
3. Staying calm. I'm not a patient person by nature, but I've been really snappy lately. It's hard to juggle so much at once, I have mad respect for all the ladies who have more than one LO at home with them!

1. Meeting the needs if three kids at totally different stages.
2. Getting the whole pumping thing figured out so that it will be a success.
3. Not being able to get much housework done. DH tries to help, I just like MY way better. (I know-I need to let that go.)

Pumping: now that im EBFing its not as big of a deal bit I need to find time to pump more often.

Chores: Carson wants to be held 24/7 so its hard to find time for house work. Plus he seems to want to eat every hour for the last couple days.

Worrying: im paranoid, im always checking the color of his lips and nail beds to make sure they arent blue. I dont think that worry will ever go away.

1. Being able to balancing two kids and making sure Max doesn't feel left out while I care for the baby.
2. The once or twice a day crying fits where Natalie is inconsolable and holding, rocking, cuddling her doesn't calm her down. I'm okay holding her all day long if that makes her happy, but when i can't keep her content no matter what i do, it makes me a little crazy.
3. Letting go of the housework for a while. The house is a mess and nothing gets done that isn't absolutely essential until the weekends, but it is making me a little crazy living that way.

1) getting house work done. I WANT to do it but other things are taking priority
2) getting hubby to do more with the baby
3) sleep

1.) Feelings of guilt. I know I have a touch of the Baby Blues. I feel guilty for not being able to give my full attention to DS. I know a lot of these feelings have to do with going back to working 12 hour shifts again.

2.) Breastfeeding. The majority of his diet is breast milk but he does get a few ounces of formula because my supply isn't enough for him yet.

3.) Housework. I feel like nothing ever gets done.
