I have a friend, she has a kid who is newly 2, another kid who is 9 months and she's pregnant again. Her husband is in the military and is gone a lot. Before she was pregnant with number 3, her dh was deployed and all day every day she complained and complained on fb and through text about how she never gets sleep, she hates her life, being a mom is so hard, she's going insane and has no help(I'm not in the same state). So what does she do when he dh comes home? Tries to get pregnant again! So its the same thing every day about how her kids keep her up all night and its so hard being a parent,etc.

Well she's about to have another kid. So 3 under 3...she can't handle the ones she has, and her dh is leaving again. I think its fine if people want to have kids, but why keep having them if you seriously can't handle them and they stress you out THAT much?! I just don't get it! Ok vent over!

I'm lost on why it's so hard...i have two at home and WAH as well. 

if you can't handle the work, shut down the factory.

Yeah me either. It's one thing if there's an accidental pregnancy but an entirely different story when you're TTC. The same goes when you can't support the kids you already have...wtheck are you TTC when you're already on P.A., cant provide basic necessities for your kids, aren't paying your rent, and don't have a job?! Lame. Seriously.

She sounds like a whoa is me type of person. It may not be that hard for her she may just enjoy the sympathy.

Every parent gets stressed at times but if she can't keep it together with the ones she has don't have anymore...very simple....get fixed! someone should tell her that.

Eh, most people are unaware of how much children will actually change their lives. I've heard the toll children can take on a parent compared to a bad flu that lasts for years rather than days - and this by an expert in ECE...And she may be a great mom who saves her bitching for the Internet so she gets sympathy.

I do think our society and their unrealistic expectations contribute greatly to this type of bitching.

 I think she is just venting.  Maybe that is her way of getting it off her chest because I am sure she doesn't want to complain to her husband who is thousands of miles away.  I am sure she probably loves her kids it is just sometimes we all have to vent our frustrations
