Mom guilt

Anonymous

I’m 30 weeks pregnant with twins, needless to say I’m exhausted and in pain. I also have a 2 year old, and lately we’ve been watching WAY more movies than I ever wanted for a two year old. I feel like we’re just surviving, I feel guilty 😞

    Don’t feel guilty... I mean, what can you really do if you’re exhausted and in pain? You need to care for yourself and the little ones you are growing inside of you. Just remember that this isn’t forever. Your 2 year old will grow up just fine. Just make sure they aren’t sitting right up against the tv and you’ll be fine. Talk to them about what you guys are watching like it’s a storybook (if you’re up to it).

    i’m 34 weeks pregnant with one baby. i can’t imagine being pregnant with twins AND taking care of a 2 year old. in my opinion, what matters at the end of the day, is that your kids are loved, healthy and alive. you’re tired and in pain.. there’s no need for you to stress yourself out more than you need to. you’re doing great ❤️

    Do not feel guilty. I have 4 kids, 5 and under so I’ve been pregnant with toddlers a lot (no twins). I spent a lot of time feeling guilty about that. But I look back and it was fine. The alternative was often me yelling or them crying because I was exhausted and they were toddlers. Can’t be better than tv. Positive memories is best. Good luck!!
