I just copied and paste this from May2011 to here, so bare with the lingo
The basic bare bones back story is: My DH is deploying soon (from Guam) and i am pregnant due in late May, so we flew me and DS to ohio (with parents) to have the baby. Well my step-dads parents live in the same house, and making life very miserable for everyone in the house.
My post is to ask whether you would go back home or stay put where your at? I am in the dilemma because #1 i really dont want to piss anyone off (i know thats a dumb reason but its a reason of mine) I have a shower planed (no invites sent yet) and i havent really seen anyone since being home. #2 My ONE and only friend in Guam, is leaving to summer vacation in May and wont be back until Aug. So i really seriously would be by myself, and as of right now i wouldnt have anyone to keep or watch DS when i go into labor.
But who is to say i wont make friends between being back home and having the baby? I havent talked to my family yet (i want to make a firm decision before i do that) But i am pretty certain that they would come out for a week or so after LO is born to help out.
OR would you wait until AFTER LO is born here and then go back to being at home once you have recovered and things have settled down? And my only problem with that would be LO would be an Infant on lap traveler and could you imagine carrying and holding a baby and handling rambunctious 3 year old all by yourself for 18+ hours? And its not like i could take a stroller as a carry on. the only way around that would be for one of my parents to come back with us?
im at a complete loss here, and i really want to go home, im tired of being depressed here and im tired of people snapping at me for nothing or because they are mad for whatever reason. And im especially tired of hearing about my step-dads parents being rude and crazy.
Im not looking for flames here, im seriously upset about this whole thing and torn between decisions. I would really just like some advice.
