I feel like a terrible mother

I'm 8 months pregnant and I feel like I have NO energy for my kids most days. Some days I wake up and want to go out and do something with them, but most days I just feel like I can't do anything. I'm so tired all the time. And now I'm just whining to a bunch of random internet women. Nice.

 lol at the last sentence. when i was pregnant with my ds, dd was still a baby.  they're exactly 18 months apart.  i did my best to play with her and take her out for walks.  i was dead tired all the time, so i know the guilt you're feeling right now.  i do remember that when i did more and more, i got more energy from being more active.  good luck with the rest of your pregnancy. and don't worry too much, i'm pretty sure you're doing just fine :)

Thanks. I have 3 toddlers, so giving them the attention they need is tough right now.

Give your self some cred.  Your body is making a beautiful being.  You have every right to be tired.  :)

I felt really tired during both of my pregnancies. I feel tired now and I am not pregnant lol

I told my husband the other night, "don't even THINK about me doing this again for at least 5 years."

1 mom liked this

This happened in our family last week.

DH came home from work. DD looked like crap on a stick!  She hadn't eaten, slept, she is having a bad case of pregnancy acne.  She even stunk.  LOL

DH said, "what did you do today"

DD said, "I grew a person a little more, what did you do?"

LMAO

Give yourself a break, its exhausting.

It's ok dear. I'm in the same boat. 2 kids and 33 weeks pregnant. I'm exhausted and it's so hard to find the energy to do anything. Just relax and don't over stress it.

My husband gives me a break. I told him I don't have the energy to do anything and he says "what do you expect? You're growing a Person inside you." Lol I love that man.
