Incapable and grumpy

I feel so incapable of taking care of my step son… and I feel so grumpy toward him right now. Maybe it’s the heat. Maybe I need to eat.
I think it’s bull crap his mom “can’t” take care of him.

Sorry just venting.

Could it be mood changes caused by pregnancy? Does that happen ?

Yeah it could be… I don’t know if it’s mood changes or just hormones messing with me

I’m sure that’s a lot to take on, on top of being pregnant.

Maybe you could talk to your step son’s mom and tell her to do what she can and to push herself a little bit in doing it. Being pregnant is a big deal. You’re making another human being. That’s got to be stressful. Explain that to your step son’s mom.

I mean you as a mum.

But it does seem sort of unfair that you’re looking after her child so much… Idk maybe I’m missing something

Ummm… we don’t talk lol I’ve been advised by my husbands family not to talk to her cause she is good at twisting what people say…

Also she doesn’t know I’m pregnant yet either I don’t think. Don’t think she’d be willing to help more even if she knew I was pregnant
