    But isn't that what the forum is for, no one needs to post a thread about how fantastic their children are or how well they are coping with everything on their plate because then they wouldn't need help or advice. There has been plenty of threads on bubhub about funny things our kids do/say, how cute they are, what we love most about them, etc. Maybe your noticing these threads you mention more because of your frame of mind or something, kind of like how stereotypes are reinforced when we only notice what we want to notice. This thread for example, I wouldn't have said it was the OP wanting to "moan about her kids", I would have thought it was about her venting about balancing two young children and a hard weeks work (just the same as you), running a household and trying to get her husband to understand without getting offended.

    Chances you could very well be 'one of those mothers'. We never know until we are in that position.

    Chances, please don't continue posting on this thread, you are of no help or support at all - which is what the OP needs. If you are sick of reading posts from frustrated mums, then stick to the TTC topics only.

    You don't know her personal situation - she may have no choice but have to work with a 2yr & 3mth old. Her finances may not be as good as yours, so show some respect. One day it may be you posting looking for a vent or support, remember that.

    OP, I really empathize with you. I'm shortly going to have a newborn and 18mth old - on my own because DH suddenly left. I'm already worried how I'll cope, since I didn't CHOOSE to do this on my own.

    I've made the decision to leave DS in daycare for 1-2 days a week if I can afford it. Firstly to help stop his boredom, but also so I at least get some time alone with the new bub and be able to rest when baby is.

    Good luck

    Have some bloody compassion, how rude do you want to be. Yes ttc is horrible especially IVF and the struggles many women go through and I admire their strength. But what we cant whinge? Suck it up? Lets hope to god you dont ever struggle and hey wonder if you would change your tune once you have had to listen to those beautiful cries for days straight. Im saddenex to think that there is such contempt against a mothers struggle. Dont know what rosy coloured glasses you are wearing but being a mother Isnt rainbows and chocolate everyday. Motherhood is hard wether you struggled to get there or not and you know what else? We are all grateful every day for the children we have but that doesnt mean Its not a bloody struggle to get through the day. This is a parenting forum so thankfully I hope this is your last post because quite frankly we dont need unsupportive members telling mothers to get over it....Its not that bad...be grateful. Oh and Its possible you might struggle when your bundle of joy comes along so when you come back expect us all to console you because youre most likely going to need it one day

    Bleating? The OP is the root of the problem? YOU are sick of reading? But you aren't bitter???
    Sorry, but you have no clue. You are being horribly judgemental towards someone without having ever been in their situation, she came here for help and support, you have offered nothing but blame and insults. There was nothing helpful to pick from your posts at all.

    When you are a parent you will see its not always easy, some days are bl00dy hard. Some babies are hard. Feeding can be hard, settling is hard, sleeping is hard. It's all worth it but when you are running on two hours broken sleep, covered in posset stains and cradling a screaming baby in your messy house and your DH comes home and asks what's for dinner, you see if you feel grateful to have a baby, or you see if you just want some help and a break.

    You honestly have no right to judge until you've been there.
