So I had a question for you all. To give you background, with my first son I worked as a Director at a Daycare (3 months), stay at home mom (3 months), teacher assistant at a daycare (about 3 months). I remember being tired but excited and happy about things.
This time around I am in my 20th week of pregnancy with an 18 month old and I work as a Kindergarten teacher (have been all year). I am not sure if it is stress of the end of the school year or depression or what, but I am feeling very overloaded and overwhelmed lately. I do not remember being this emotional, moody, or tired in my first pregnancy and i am a little worried that it might be depression. It does not last very long but when I have a bad day/week it affects me for much longer then it normally would and I am left down in the dumps more then I usually would. Also, I do not seem to feel as excited/obsessed with the news of a new baby coming soon. Please don't get me wrong i am excited but I don't feel like I am AS excited as I was with my son.
Does this sound like normal second time pregnancy issues because I am pregnant and have a toddler this go round? Or could this be a bigger issue?
