I am a first time mom... im due on June 3rd.
I was so excited and happy when i found out that me and my hubby were pregnant.
However a lot has changed since October...
My love got into a horrible, near fatal car wreck in January. That added a lot of stress and worry to me as i had to fly to another state to see him in the hospital nearly paralyzed (he had 4 head fractures, a blown ear drum, a broken right collar bone, several fractures in his left arm (which he needed plates and screws to put back together) 3 broken ribs and contusions on his hip. (Just seeing him almost made me go into hysterical tears) He was put on disability after a week in ICU & his surgery and we had to drive (the last thing he prob wanted to do) 11hrs to get back home in a rental car...
Less than 2 weeks later, i ended up having to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency surgery myself as i almost lost our baby at 23 weeks... it has been such a stressful, scary time since January for me (as well as im sure, my love) and i feel like i just cant stand this anymore. Im on bed rest because of my surgery so since Feb i have been out of work and on disability myself and hes at home trying to recover from all his injuries and seeing over 4 different doctors just to keep things progressing along with his psychical therapy...
Its insane! I couldn't even script this for a movie, my life is crazy unbelievable...
My main question is i suppose: Am i a bad mother/lover for feeling that i've been "jipped" out on my pregnancy which is supposed to be all about me and the baby and being pampered by my love since i cant get any of that... as well as for feeling that i just want the pregnancy to be OVER already so i at least have the freedom to be out of my own bed and be able to just drive to the food store or get out of the house>?
I feel horrible... Any help or suggestions or thoughts???
