baby fever and feeling like a failure *J_B* TTC since Aug 2013; 2 kids; 6 angel babies; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 2709 posts

Lately my little man has been crying, crying, crying to be in my arms for what seems like all day long. He won't eat much solids (nothing most days) so he nurses very frequently. I know he doesn't feel good right now, but when he just continually clings to me and crys when I have to do something without him in arms, it makes me feel like I'm a POS mom.
Like he's saying...I'm not going to be happy no matter what you do. I'll just shut up for a while if you hold me.



Maybe it's because I'm about to get my period and I'm thinking stupid things like,"Stupid condoms for working so well..." and fantasizing about my husband coming home and saying,"Let's start trying!" spontaneously (even though we decided to wait until June). He would probably never do that though...seriously, if I didn't ask for another child I'm pretty sure he'd just be content and he'd probably never even think twice about it.



Anyone else feel like this sometimes?
