So my DH works out of town for 15days at a time,we are on day 15, i am exhausted, pms has hit and today i had a total mommy meltdown and now i feel like pure dirt! First off, we do not live near any family so i have no help, monday was LO's 1st set of shots so my mother came sunday night to go with us monday morning, which is great however she keeps saying LO needs cereal because he is starting to eat every 2hours again somedays. well grandma gave him cereal and now he has not had a dirty diaper since Monday afternoon and he screams when he is straining like he needs to dirty his diaper but he cant. he started this last night, so today after finding nothing to calm him down i took him for a car ride which did not work so we came home and our dog had pooped in the house by the back door and i was lucky enough to step in it, now our dog is 16 years old and knows better but at the same time she is 16 and i'm sure she cant hold things like she used to. I lost it and yelled at the dog, which in turn scared my poor little guy and he started screaming even louder than i thought possible so i now feel terrible i finally got him calmed down and asleep for a nap but i just cant keep from crying and worrying that i hurt his little feelings and scared him. i am just at the end of my rope, 15 days of barely getting anything to eat or enough sleep, not leaving the house, trying to keep up with the basic things like clean bottles and clothes and keeping up with the dogs. ugh, i knew this was not going to be a walk in the park but i feel so unqualified and inadequate. thanks for reading, i just need to vent!
