I'm really resentful of my daughter lately. My husband works long hours. I'm a stay at home mom. My daughter is almost 15 months and, I've not been away from her for more than a couple of hours at a time since birth. I feel trapped... suffocated almost. I feel like I can't get out. I love her, and I want her... but sometimes I feel like just giving up. Just leaving for awhile. I would never do it, but the pull is tempting.
I knew that being a mom wouldn't be easy but, I never expected this. I'd go to work except, we'd be paying more in childcare than I'd make. We don't have any family around because my husband is military -- we're really far away from them. What do I do? I feel so alone. I'm afraid to say anything because I'm afraid someone will think I'm a bad mom... that I don't love her... and take her away. I don't want that, I don't know what to do.

Next question overall
If the baby is not moving at week 39, is that a sign of a problem?
