So we are not struggling… But something is going on. Eric and I relationship wise is doing great – but I think the nerves of becoming parents is starting to show. I am currently 17 weeks pregnant and we are realizing — we will have two newborn infants. We have waited SO long to get pregnant I do not either one of us thought about the end goal – actually taking care of a child much less two.
For myself – I have been dropping the ball with some work things. But I mainly cannot remember anything. I keep forgetting to pay certain bills or spill a 32 oz of water all over the couch. But I do feel better I have signed up for us to take some parenting classes that will cover things like how to diaper a baby ( something we both have no idea about). I also started to put some baby things away. But I still feel overwhelmed especially since the bump is growing a TON – I measure 6 weeks ahead so it is like I am 23 weeks pregnant.
Eric – I do feel badly for him. He is trying so hard to keep work going and help out around the house. But there are mistakes being made ( and kinda big ones). Twice this month he has left the fridge door open all night – I normally check now but sometimes I fall asleep before I do. Long story short – most of the food has been thrown out twice – the temp gauge went up to like 60 degrees. The last time it happened he felt so badly about it that he brought me flowers ( you can see them above).
I hope we stop messing up soon – any advice would be awesome. We basically feel like chickens with our heads cut off.
