    Hope everyone else is having a good day
    Sometimes it's ok to be sad. I know it's hard not to let the big black monster of depression to roam free in that time though...
    I hope your LO enjoys school. Hopefully it will get easier for you

    Smidget how exciting! Good luck!

    Gothel as smidget said its alright to feel sad sometimes. And its ok to think your day will be easier with only one child at home. Doesn't mean you love your DD any less. It just means your day is easier, DD2 gets some 1 on 1 with you and DD1 is making new friends and learning cool stuff. Be gentle with yourself, I find times of transition can be difficult.

    AFM I'm so sick of being tired. The house is s mess again, and I want to clean it but I am so tired. Every time I've sat down today I've fallen asleep. I know my family think I'm lazy, I'm sure DP does too sometimes, but I want to have a clean house, do craft with the kids, go to the park, cook gourmet meals, all the things all those supermums do. But I honestly barely have the energy to get through the day. With 4 children home all the time that dealing with the immediate have toos is about all I can keep up with.

    I was talking to DP the other night about whether I should medicate, but I don't know if that's right for me. I feel I have the moods and negative thoughts under control, but the exhaustion I just can't escape. Oh well I guess I'll just keep plodding on.

    Maybe ask for something to help with the sleep? It might help. Maybe try some counselling or something once a week. Not all medication is bad and if a tablet helps you sleep at night it might be worth it. Doesn't have to be an anti d or anything. There's a new sleeping tablet that is actually just the bodies normal hormones. You take it for a few weeks and it fixes the sleep cycles your body has...

    They have slowly become more frequent. Still too irregular though. I have found standing to be the most comfortable position. I barely feel them when standing. Sitting gets uncomfortable and lying down is just painful! My DP suggested duck taping me to the wall so I can at least get some sleep. Lol. I am so tired that I hope I go into labour AFTER some sleep. Lol

    Good luck smidget. I was in pre labour on and off for 2 weeks.
    My dh also suggested duck tape.

    I am finding that so far bub #2 has not set me off. Dh is watching me closely but thinks I'm doing great.

    I agree with a pp about the sleeping pill. If you can fix your sleep it may very well fix half the problem and make the rest bearable.
