[snip!] ... the feelings of inadequacy I have about myself, and my constant worries about her reflux issues and my obsessive fear of SIDS. "I am terrified with having my second child and how I will react again. I had to move back in with my parents because finances got REALLY rough. I have a TERRIBLE 2 year old (haha) and my Mom and Grandma who lives with us too does not believe in popping them for being bad...instead they just let him do whatever he wants and he used to listen to us now all he does he roll his eyes at us and not listen to us when he used to listen to us all the time. It's rough knowing I have another one on the way in 5 weeks. I want to raise my boys right not give them pretty pretty princess syndrome LOL. I had a GREAT job when I was in South Carolina that had insurance up the wall and I couldn't carry it to VA since it was a state plan and I had to apply for Medicaid which was stressful because I am soo close to the end. It's really rough I know how you feel I'm feeling the Pre Partum coming on. It's really rough having kids and it will die down and you will feel better. Your doing the right thing by taking the medicine you need. I failed at breast feeding too because of me going into a mental hospital for my PPD! Plus I hit a serious fever the day after my son and I were discharged and was put in the hospital for almost 3 days. It's rough because yes you do feel like a failure but this is what got my through...I will have another try with my little one on the way. A lot of women have to switch to formula. I worked in a daycare where the baby was actually allergic to the Mother's milk and she felt depressed as well.. It's rough but will always get better.

With my son I was a wild one (HAHA) and with this little one it actually hurts too much to do. I will literally get sick after the act. This is going to sound like TMI but the one thing that got us through was oral. As long as men get something they don't care..well I don't know if that's just mine but usually that's the case haha. It's the best way to try and show him your still attracted to them because that is their fear.
