Before the baby was torn from my uterus, I had lots of offers for help after his birth. My MIL promised to be here every day when Carmen had to go back to work, another friend offered to be my back up if she couldn't come. Well the day comes for carmen to go back to work, on Monday one week after the c-section and guess what, no help. MIL is feeling dizzy and doesn't want to drive, FIL is in the city for the week. The back up friend can't come either, can't get off work, and is sleeping the rest of the day. So it is just me, not able to drive, or lift, not supposed to climb stairs. I am so frustrated. My house is trashed and I am so tired. It has been just me all week and Carmen is working all weekend too!

I finally am feeling back to normal, for the most part. I am getting very aggrevated with not being allowed to drive...or lift anything. I feel like a prisoner in the house! Carmen might actuallyl let me come to walmart with him today! I am going to put baby christopher in a snugli so no one can touch him! Things are going great. Christopher is a great baby, he sleeps well, eats well and is just a delight. Sarah loves him and is being a big help. She is also getting frustrated with not being able to go anywhere...but things will get better soon. I am going to try and post a picture.......but I am not very good at it so it probably won't work!

Okay so last week I call my husband on the phone and I say, " I need tires on the car." The car is shaking badly and it is becoming a saftey issue." He Says, call and get prices but we can not do it now we will do it before winter. I Say" it can't wait they are really bad. He says "it is summer now they will be fine for a while" I sigh and give up. So today we are out and we come out to the car, and he looks at the front tires and says "wow these are bad" Why didn't you tell me they were so bad!" WTF!!!!! I did tell him over and over and over. I practically begged for tires. So now he is mad because I didn't tell him they were bad...when in fact I did. The problem is he doesn't listen, and he doesn't take me seriously. I am so frustrated I could just cry!

I am so frustrated...I am doing everythign I can to try and be a good wife, preg or not....I have been trying to keep house better, doing my dishes every day, trying to keep up with house work, cooking dinner as often as schedules allow, and even trying to be "intimate" which is much tougher than anything else. But even with my efforts it all comes down to a failure. I am not satisying DH in anyway....I just can't seem to do anything right. I just can't help but feel that even after baby things aren't going to get better.

Well we attempted to go to a movie, but it didn't work out. We left after Sarah was asleep, around 9pm to go to a movie. One hour into the movie, which is 2 hrs and 20 min long, my BIL called to say sarah had been hysterical for 20 min and wouldnt' calm down. So we went home where we found her crying and miserable...she wanted mommy and nothing else. I finally calmed her down and got her back to bed. But too late to go back to the movie. Oh well......this is life as a parent!
Afer 4 weeks of trying to go we are finally getting to see Harry Potter. Every time we tried something came up. So my wonderful 17 year old BIL(17 today!) is going to babysit! What a nice kid, to babysit on his b-day! It will be great to have a night out with the husband for a change. We really need it!
I had my 37 week appointment today, and saw a different dr. This dr thinks I should cancel the scheduled c-section and let things happen on their own. So now I am torn. I mean my parents are coming up on the 12th for the c-section and they will be really dissapointed to miss it. I am also worried about trying labor and winding up with a c-section anyway. I do not know what to do!
