I was so emotional when pg, it's just that the hormones bump everything up. I still remember laughing my head off at a DVD of MArgaret Cho. She is hilarious.
And those sentimental telephone commercials, wow. I'd just start crying and DH would sympathize and find it amusing at the same time. There was this very effective anti-bullying "commercial" that was so harsh, I cried. It was an adult heading to work, walking through the cubicle maze and getting bullied at every turn, similar to high school. They must have gotten a lot of complaints because it didn't run for long. I tried finding it on youtube a while ago, just to see if it would have the same impact on me but I didn't have any luck. (despite my DH saying that everything is on youtube lol)
My sympathies about having your in-laws around I am sure a short visit is nice but I am guessing they are there for a loooong one? to help with the baby?
The help will be welcome, I am sure. How I wished for help when my DS was born, I was so overwhelmed. The nursing wasn't going well, the sleeping--what sleep? that boy did not sleep like all those sleep-book describe. So I ditched the books and followed him and life got easier He's 7 now so I survived
Sleep when baby sleeps, let your MIL take care of the dishes and laundry. Even if snoozing makes you feel terribly guilty. That first month is hard (first 2 weeks, actually but every day gets easier)
vent away, my friend. I am sure many other women are feeling the same and it helps to read it, you know??
me:42, DH 43
DS: born by c-sec Apr15'03, 9lbs5oz 41wks gest. (after 4 years of ttc, starting in 1998)
DD born by c-sec Oct 13 2007, 8lbs13oz 39wk gest. (after just under 3 years of ttc)
DS was conceived naturally the cycle following a cancelled DE IVF, using my good friend's eggs. She was on the verge of hyperstimming.
DD's nat conception I attribute to using OPKs like a crazy nut, eating grapefruit daily and using preseed. also 5 cycles of TCM ending 2 cycles before that lucky cycle.
