A lil venting, and a lot of advise needed ASAP!!! Thanks on advance.
Hello, I am 36weeks today. I have preeclampsia. I am a single mama with a 5 year old at home with me 24/7 (she is homeschooled as well so literally she is with me 24/7) I do not have a reliable support system. I thought I had things setup, but they seem to be falling apart. My mom lives over an hr away, but travels often....she is going to be out of the country in a few days, my BFF lives about a half hr away but is really ill with kidney issue's and they think she may have cancer, my boyfriend ( this baby's father) has been not reliable, and has 2 old children (10, and 13) he is away visiting them every weekend. He visits us sometimes during the week with 'plans' to move home here once our daughter is born...then take things one day at a time. He does not drive though, so I am the one who has to pick him up when he is with us. Yeah, and that's the extent of my 'circle'. Well of course I have all those people who like to give their 2 cents, but are not willing to actually help out. I admit I am a strong person, BUT it would be sooooo nice to have some help right about now. I am supposed to. E on 'bedrest' however I HAVE to work.... Otherwise my children and I won't have a place to live, food to eat, a car, etc. I work pt 3 days a week right now in the afternoon...good job as a nanny. Kids are awesome, and I am able to rest when the younger one naps prior to the older one getting off the bud, so it works out good. My daughter goes with me to work, and typically is a huge help.
So for the delivery my daughter is going to be there, and is excited. She is my 'breathing coach'. There needs to be an adult there with her though since she is under 18.... Again I thought I had it figured out BUT now....idk!!! And what happens E i am there for the 2-4days? She isn't allowed to sleep there but can spend day switch me there. I am wondering what I should do. Idk how to get a support system in place. Seems now that I have preeclampsia and NEED help nobody is around to help me....not that they were really there before, but I was used to doing it alone so I guess it didn't phase me as much.
Sorry this is so long...guess I am venting, and also seeking advise. Now doctors are talking about inducing me soon because my baby's heart rate keeps dipping low, and it's getting dangerous. HELP!!!!! Any and all advise welcome.... Nd of course LOTS of prayers please!!!! Thanks
