What are some of the concerns/anxieties you are feeling RIGHT NOW?

what's going on in your head at this very moment?

for me, it's me feeling guilty that I have to put my LO in his PNP while I steal some "mom time"

Re: What are some of the concerns/anxieties you are feeling RIGHT NOW?

  • *My DH and I won't have time for each other anymore.

    *I'm responsible for this little person...forever.

    *I won't be able  to handle being a stay at home mom because I won't keep busy enough and will have to put LO in daycare.

    *I'll never feel comfortable as a mom.

    Man, typing all these makes me seem like such a heartless, ungrateful person.  We talked about all of these things before I became pregnant and we were both willing to make this life change.  Now that it's here though, I keep thinking "what the he!! have we done?".  And I feel horrible for that.  I know this is just the hormones because I am feeling this way less and less each day but I still feel horrible about it.  I love my LO and my DH sooo much, I just want to feel comfortable in my "role" again.  I know how to take care of babies (worked at a baby shelter for abused/neglected kids for 3 years, worked at daycares, taught for 6 years) and know I can do it, it just seems so overwhelming right now to think I can't just do what I want when I want now because of LO. 

    This feeling will pass once everything becomes a habit, right?

    THIS exactly for me.........like to a t

  • ** DD won't nap and its driving me nuts**

    DH is upset that we have no sex life and I feel bad but not enough to do anything about it.

    Am I cut out to be a SAHM?  

  • I am dreading the sound of my DD crying to be feed when I really want to go to bed and sleep through the night without having to wake up to take care of her. I feel guilty that I think like this. 

    I want all of these terrible feelings to go away.

    I want to feel as connected to my DD as my DH does.

    I hate being a SAHM and am counting the days until I return to work.

    I hate that my DH wants to spend the few hours he has with our DD at home when all I want to do is escape with him. I want him to want to escape too.
