i feel like im a bad mom-any other pregnant ladies out there feelng like this?

so ok i have two kids already, my life is full of stress and chaose and for the most part i love it' however. after dh came back from iraq we wanted to try again fro anouther baby.we didnt think it would happen right away but it im due here within the next few weeks. hes due to leave within the next few weeks as well. we got to talking about the baby and how it seems as if im not as excited as i was b4. and im not' im excited to a cetain degree' i will love and take care of this lil baby but im just not as excited as i should be- could it just be the stress? does this make me a bad mom?
i feel as if i am a bad mom, what kinda mom isnt thrilled and bursting with joy and excitment that shes about to give birth to her 2nd lil girl? im at a total loss here-

  • honey you are not a bad mom, you are NORMAL. i would probably be crying knowing that youare gonna have a third baby on your hands with your hubby being gone for extended periods of time. you are over worked and stressed. its hard for you to get excited ab the baby when you already know how much work it will be. you will feel better when the baby gets here but for now u should just focus on getting some rest before it gets here!

  • You've got a lot of stress. Its hard to be excited when you've got your DH leaving. Regardless of how much you may want this baby, taking care of her and the other two all on your own is a big, daunting, not particularly fun task. You're just fine. I have no doubt that you love your baby, but you will probably look back at her birth/babyhood as a trying time.

  • You are fine. A lot of the excitement wears off after each one. You will still be a good mom
