Help I can't do this. I have 3 beautiful kids (6 DD, 4 DS, 18mon DD) We are in law school away from family. I just found out i'm preggo again (took 2 tests). I'm freaking out. I feel like a horrible mom normailly, 1 more is going to make me worse.  Its just so bad of timing.


Just need some support.

Timing is definitely one of those things that we feel can make or break a situaton....however, this unborn child is a gift :) It often times doesn't feel that way, but he or she definitely is!!!  Keep your chin up...it will be ok!!!

It will be okay!! I am sure you are in shock now but babies are such a blessing. And I bet your older two will be great helpers when baby comes!

 It will be ok : ) It's always a shock when you found out you are pregnant but keep in mind you now have 9 months to plan! What makes you feel like a horrible mom?

I have less patience than i should. I probably yell more than I should. Adding another cant help that. I'm feeling a little better tonight. I know it will be ok.

thanks girls

I can certainly understand your anxiety. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. You might not understand why it's happening now, but in the future you'll be able to look back and understand it all. Stay calm and baby on!  Everything will work out :)

Your feelings are totally understandable given how much you already have on your plate, but you will be okay once things have time to sink in. Maybe you should look into finding a mother's helper a couple times a week. Maybe a local teenager  can come after school for a couple hours and lend a helping hand. Having an extra set of eyes, ears, and hands can really go a long way and can help make you feel less overwhelmed.
