They are kicking my butt lately. With the first baby, the icky stuff started during my third trimester so I was prepared and proactive. The second time around, it didn’t hit me until after I was home for a few weeks. There was a lot of yelling and kicking my mother out. I took care of things and thought I was going to be okay.
To make matters worse – not only do I feel icky – but my face is breaking out worse than when I was a teenager and I figure I have lost about a third of my hair! So I look great too!
This time there is the added bonus of anxiety. I have never really had to deal with this much before so it was a bit of a surprise. It gets much worse the more caffeine I drink. But the baby is still waking up all through the night to eat so I am not giving that up anytime soon.
So I have been a tad bit crankier lately. I am back on track and things will get better.
It is really a wonder we choose to have kids at all. It is a good thing these babies are so gosh darn cute!
