Let me just preface this with the fact that I'm working full-time in a new job, and I have two children at home...

I'm also feeling exhausted, and I've lost my purse twice in the last two weeks (luckily both times it was returned).

So the problem is I feel guilty about not feeling more excited about the new

Hi there!

I can understand where you are coming from. I have three children as well and I know from experience that the excitement isn't as great the third time around. Pair that with the fact that you are busy with work and keeping up with your other children and, well, you are just tired!

Ways that helped me get more excited was to take a weekend to decorate the nursery and get things ready. Try to schedule a few things just for you- a pedicure or just a shopping trip alone where you can take your time and swoon over all the little baby items at the store. Are you having a shower? If so, eat it up and enjoy!

Wishing you the very best of luck! Do you know what you are expecting? Is baby a boy or a girl?
