And now my mom...
I feel like all I do is get on here and complain. Sorry ladies. Maybe we need a random thread so I'm not the only one
My mom is now pushing me to tell her the baby's name for Christmas. And my SIL and his family....why is this so important to everyone? Why do people care? They just want to be able to tell me they don't like it? It's not like someone is ordering embroidered clothing. It's just so frustrating and annoying.
And I am so tired. It's like the first tri again. And hungry. Yesterday I ate like I hadn't eaten in 3 days!! Hoping that was a fluke. I want to try to maintain until the end. I can't believe we are in the home stretch.
We've gone to the attic and gotten everything down. I've sorted through it all and am ready to start washing but I want to wait until closer to Christmas. That when I'll do my closet cleaning and house cleaning. I'm interviewing a house keeper this week. I'm praying she works out. I am in desperate need. This house is just too big for me to keep clean on my own. I did get a dyson for my birthday so keeping the floors clean just got easier. Wonder of they make a toilet cleaner?!
C'mon ladies. Complain with me!!
I've been trying so hard not to complain this time around since I feel blessed to have made it this far (given the issues with baby girl). But I will say that I feel incredibly large. And I feel my claws coming out when someone makes a comment about it. Like Wednesday, I trained some individuals at a company and I mentioned to a co-worker of mine that one of the guys said his wife was due less than a week after me. My co-worker said I didn't realize she was due so soon! I told her, not until Feb. Her eyes got big and asked if I was sure there wasn't two in there. Yes, I'm pretty sure. I told her that it was my third, but she doesn't have kids so that means nothing to her.
I will say things are getting harder to do and I just don't have the energy to do any of it. My house needs a good cleaning and things are looking cluttered. Heaven forbid my husband help out.
I don't understand why people just won't accept that you don't want to tell them the name. While it drives my family nuts, they respect it. They try to make guesses as to what it is and have fun with it. I guess I'm lucky. The sneaky people try to get the info from ds.
Well amen sister on the house cleaning, with two kids I could sweep all day long and the floors still be dirty!!! Oh yeah and atleast your LO has a name, we still haven't even began, he did rule some names out, but thats about it.
I hope your housekeeper works out and you can get everone to stop pressuring you to tell them the name!
So my biggest complaint right now revolve around our sleep issues. DH had class the last 2 nights, and so I had to deal with bed time all by myself. I laid down with Liam, and it took him 2.5 hours to fall asleep. I am just at my wit's end, and was frustrated to the point of tears last night, because he won't sleep! And I'm supposed to be trying to get him transitioned to his own bed, but how am I supposed to do that if he won't even go to sleep until 9:30 at night (and he has to get up around 6/6:15). It's making him tired and cranky during the day, but what am I to do? I can make him go to bed, but I can't make him sleep. I hope it's teething or just a phase of some sort, because I can't deal with this long-term. On top of that, our house is a mess since I spend pretty much my entire night trying to get Liam to sleep and then don't have time to do anything else. And we still have so much organization to do before the baby comes. Mix in Christmas this month, and I'm one stressed mama!
Oh gosh guys...I have had a stressful week too! I feel like I am on the verge of tears and watched Private Practice the other night and cried and cried. My three year old has had a double ear infection and then a UTI that had to be treated with two doses of antibiotic because the first one, the bacteria was resistant too and my seven year old had strep and was off school for two days and then suddenly yesterday in the car line at school decided she wasn't getting out of the car and was bawling and I had to have the guidance counselor come out and coax her into the school.
I know we will all make it through this third trimester but I am glad I have others to commiserate with!!
Oh I am so happy to see this thread! We do need a complaint thread!! OK, so my complaint of the week.. well maybe I have several, but I will just do one.
My husband has been working all the time. I mean, literally 20 + hour days when he gets to come home at all. The last 5 or 6 weeks he has been leaving on Saturday or Sunday and not getting home till Thursday or Friday night and then leaving again the next morning at like 4 to go back to work. His ship has been preparing for a big inspection that actually took place this last week. So that is over now. But I still want to complain about it! I am just so DONE. I have done 4 deployments in our 15 years and that is so much better! This is, he is across town but just can't trust anyone else to get done what needed to be done so he stayed to make sure it gets done. He is the type as well that if he is making his guys stay he will stay too just to set the good example. It is the right thing I know, but just frustrating that I can't explain his work ethic to my 4 year old in a way that she gets it. Nor does my heart understand when I am literally exhausted, and he can't leave because he has to babysit a bunch of grown men who are suppose to be trained to do their own jobs. yeah.. apparently I am a little bitter.
Military wives amaze me. I seriously don't know how you guys do it.
