Stressed To The Max
Submitted by LittleJoys
Hmmmm...where to start. Well, I'm pregnant and engaged. Don't get me wrong I'm excited. I guess I just care a little too much about what others think. I want to put the wedding off until after the baby, I don't want to feel like were getting married because of the baby and my family is being ridiculously critical right now.
What else is that I've been having a lot of complications with this pregnancy. We have had a lot of close calls. Last night, for example, I fell down the stairs. Thank God I landed on all fours so the baby was fine (after a little trouble finding the heart beat). However, I broke my foot in the process and the cast is adding to the already infamous lack of sleep during pregnancy.
I'm also a freelance graphic designer, and am debating the pros and cons of a somewhat unstable career. I might have to take up a second job but is it worth missing out on my child's life?
My greatest fear is becoming my mother. I refuse to blame my children for sacrifices I choose to make (that's all apart from motherhood right?) so why complain to my child?
Any advice is welcomed! I'm all ears!
