Feeling her overwhelmed

I am pregnant with my second child my first will turn a year at the end of July and today I literally broke down I felt so stressed my little girl is going through the phase where if your out of her eyesight she screams so much she turns red this battle can go on for hours im not saying she's like this all the time it is just happening alot more frequently now and my partner works nightshift so when he's home he sleeps then goes to work then same again next night he works about 6 days out of the week and sleeps the 7th day I'm just worrying If I'm not coping now how am i suppose to be good enough to be a mum of two I honestly feel like im not good enough sometimes ive never delt like this before so im wondering if this is pregnancy hormones or if im just at my breaking point any advice ?

Tell your doctor, get some help from your mom a few hours a week, call on a teenate Mother's Helper, try to get some rest if you can.  It sounds like pregnancy hormones and exhaustion.

My first 2 kiddos are 1 yr and 16 days apart.  I remember days where I would just hide and cry because I didn't know how I was going to do it with both of them but it's been 1.5 yrs and everyone is still alive and sane! :-)  Prego hormones can seriously suck and unfortunately just be aware that they won't magically disappear once the baby is born.  I have put myself in time out on many occasions. Just a couple minutes in my room with the door shut crying, simply breathing, etc

I'm expecting my third right now and am going through the same thing again too - this will make 3 under 3!  It never helps when ppl offer the "idk how your gonna do this! Comment.  But def seek out a helping hand.  My mom watches my kids 3 days a week - I work 2.5 and the rest of that third day I run errands or just simply enjoy the peace and quiet.  Even of you could get someone to watch the little ones for a couple hrs one day a week trust me when I say it makes a world of difference.  And don't let guilt sway you on this.  Taking care of yourself/having a little me time is good for the kids too.
