I just need to vent. If someone helps even better.



I feel so alone and so empty. i cry because no one seems to want to help me, i cry because i have no friends, i think about going back to hurting myself a lot.



I am becoming obsessed with weighing myself to make sure I'm not gaining weight back. I love that I've lost 21 pounds and i want it to keep dropping. Not like i don't have any to spare.



Work is no help. Sure they r my age but they aren't at where I'm at in my life. It sucks.



I wish i had help with my daughter, it's a struggle to get her to listen, poop on the damn pot, to eat.



I feel like a failure mother. And we have another one on the way? And DH is already talking about more?



IM SICK OF CRYING EVERY NIGHT TO MYSELF. I WANT TO FEEL GOOD.

Are you able to talk to a professional? Or are you able to maybe take a vacation, or have family come and visit you to help you out for a little bit? Sorry you're feeling like this, I hope it gets better.

I'm sorry things seem to suck right now.



Toss the scale, constantly weighing yourself is not healthy, especially when you're pg.



I don't have many friends either. I've got friends at work, but only one person (other than DH) who I see outside of work and even that is sporadically :(



How old is DD? Mine is 4 and has been VERY difficult since before we even found out about this baby. Constantly pushing boundaries, very clingy, still isn't potty trained (tho part of that is due to her medical stuff but still...)



You're NOT a failure as a mom. You're having a hard time and you're stressed. It sucks that our thread has kinda died since everyone's on FB now :(

:( I'm sorry you're feeling this way!! I felt the exact same way when I was pregnant. I cried all of the time.
Now I get overwhelmed all of the time. Sometimes I loose it and yell at the kids and feel like the biggest bitch of a mom. The only thing that makes me feel better is praying. (I know you don't believe, but you have to find something that makes sense to you to make you feel better)
Nobody is a perfect parent. I don't know of one person who knows exactly what to do/say.
It seems like all the people in this town my age are alcoholics and all the moms are so much older. (I only know one mom here who is near my age and she drinks all the time) I'm hoping that once my kids start school I'll start meeting people!!
Text me if you need to vent!!

Thanks ladies.



We don't have money for a vacation. I did get apedi yesterday thanks to a gift card. But i just dreaded having to leave the whole time. :/



I have my best friend but she isn't very mature yet even thigh she's older and i get annoyed.



I think it's just so rough right now because i have seasonal depresion and being pregnant doesn't help, and i really really don't want to go on meds.



I wish i knew more mature moms my age with good behaving kids that i could hang out with. Ya know? DH works so much and when we r off together he just wants to watch tv or go to his parents house :/

See idk if i should just put her in pull ups or what.



She pees like a.champ. Shell stop playing and tell me but pooping is a fight with her.



Thanks for the response. Hopefully everything will start looking up after the holidays. Retail sucks right now.

Retail totally sucks. But is helping us pay our bills (DH works at Target and has been picking up as many hours as he can).



We're starting on pull ups again, at least while she's at school. Our babysitter is great and is working with DD and that's carrying over at school. I'll be content with pee right now, poo can be harder to train. My DS wasn't trained until 3.5, luckily right before catching a nasty stomach bug (not ONE accident even wish explosive poo)



How far are you from the Cities? We're heading there this weekend.

We ARE having Chipotle in Rochester Friday on our way up ;)



MIL flies into MSP Thurs and we're going up for the weekend (she wants to shop, I'd rather eat glass than go to MoA within a week of Christmas). Our hotel is in Bloomington (forget which one)
