      Okay, so I understand that going to a therapist is going to be my main source of finding a “cure” but that’s not in the cards right now. Anyway, I have three kids (two bonus, and one of my own) and one on the way. After I found out I was pregnant for our fourth child it has become exponentially worse and I don’t have any idea how to fix it. But I am beyond exhausted all the time. I barely make it to work, hardly have any energy to take care of our kids and most days, do the bare minimum to keep them alive and kicking. I hardly clean-I don’t have the energy. I feel like such a failure and I am so ashamed of the things that I let slide. But I don’t know the first place to try to fix my situation.

      I know how you feel. I have no.3 on the way and am so tired all the time I could cry.

      I felt that way when I was pregnant with my 3rd. I was so exhausted and woke up with dread every day. It seemed to lift once I had my baby so I must have had antenatal depression. Hopefully you’ll get more energy once baby is born. Also, are your iron levels ok? Mine were low so that didn’t help. Don’t feel bad for doing the bare minimum. The only reason I took my my kids out was because I couldn’t stomach being home with them all day! Good luck

      When I read this this, I’m thinking NO WONDER YOU ARE BLOODY TIRED. Can something give? Work? More help with the kids?

      Please please please get help. Whether your GP, your partner, friends. You have to look after yourself with a baby in your tummy. Can you stop work early.

      And to add that I sooooo agree with that other no wonder you are tired. You are only human.

      Go to GP and get your iron levels checked as well as any other test that may suggest why you are tired but it does sound natural with all you have happening

      My friend recommended this book (Parenting Toddlers: How You Can Use Positive Discipline to Raise Kids Who Will Have High Self-Esteem, Including Tips for Sleep Training, Handing Tantrums and a Guide to Potty Training) and it’s honestly been a huge game changer for me, it’s been so helpful in so many different aspects of parenting! Here’s the link if you want a free copy: https://amzn.to/2LsVSum
      If you want to cancel during the free trial you can, you still get the book, that’s what I did haha 😆
