Hi all.  Hope all is well with you.  I am feeling so depressed today and so alone.  I am staying off of my feet more now especially since Friday when I had some bad cramping.  I went to the doctor and had an ultrasound done.  My cervix is still thinning but I still haven't dilated which is good.  Our baby is fine; he weighs 1 lb and 13 ounces.  I will be 26 weeks tomorrow.  I take baths now instead of showers and my mom is staying here during the day to take care of my daughter so I don't have to pick her up much.  Our friends have been bringing us dinner each night since I can't cook now.  That is wonderful and a big help to us.  I haven't really been depressed since I started back on the Tegretol but today I am so depressed and I feel so all alone.  I just want to cry!!  I feel like my quality time with my daughter is not as good anymore since I can't pick her up and walk around with her or dance with her anymore.  I take naps with her and hold her on my lap.  I sit in the floor with her and play with her that way but I feel like she knows that something has changed.  I just feel so sad.  I feel so alone.  I will do whatever it takes to get our son here as close to due time as possible.  I don't know.  I'm trying not to worry and praying a lot for things to turn out alright.  But yet I still feel so depressed and weepy.  Today is just a bad day for me.  My mom is here, I have my husband at night, friends stop by to visit and yet I still feel alone.
 
Well, thanks for listening.  I don't know what I would do if I didn't have this board and you guys to turn to.

Dear Missflip

You are such a wonderful mother.  The things you are able to do with your daughter are wonderful - more than alot of people accomplish even those without other things going on (like a little life inside of you!)

Focus on what you CAN do with your daughter, not what you can't.

You are a great mom.

Hello missflip- smurf

Thought that lil' 'smurf' was cute and you might laugh if I put it there for you. Your pregnancy is coming along and you are taking care of yourself to keep it that way- that is wonderful! I am so glad you have your mother, daughter,and husband there for you, make it a priority to let yourself feel their love. They are there and as a family you will find joy in what is to come (a baby!) Write us ASAP to tell us how you are when you get this.

XO-Tania

Just a (((hug))) of support for you. You're doing great taking care of your children the best way you know how. It's not easy by any means, but you'll make it through.

Hi. I took a nap this afternoon but I still feel so depressed and so alone and now I even feel frustrated for feeling this way. UGGg. I just want to sleep. My 11 month old won't take a nap this afternoon. Everytime my mom puts her in her crib she cries and wants out. She always takes two naps a day. She has started doing that at night too. My husband puts her in her crib after rocking her to sleep and she wakes up immediately and cries and screams. I can't help because I am not suppose to be lifting.

Anyway, I am just having a bad day guys. Thanks for the words of encouragement all. I appreciate it so much.
