Feeling Overwhelmed

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

So...I found out last week that I am pregnant, which is excellent news because I was starting to feel like maybe I could not get pregnant.
However, it comes at a bad time for my husband and me. We moved from Indiana to California about 6 months ago for my husband's job. I have not been able to find a job yet, so we are not able to pay all of our bills each month.
Both of our families live in Indiana, so we left them and our friends behind. Since I do not yet have a job and I take my college classes online, I have not met any new people.
I did have a job interview last week and I have two more this week, but all three jobs would be over an hour away from where we live. Being pregnant, I am really concerned about the distance from *potential job to home, especially when it gets closer to due date.
So, I have no family or friends, no job, and am 6 weeks pregnant, with job interviews and school work hanging over me.
Any advice or just good thoughts or vibes that anyone can send my way would be appreciated. I am trying to stay calm so the baby will be healthy, but being overweight and some family history also has me worried that something could be wrong with the baby.
All of these things are constant source of stress and I am feeling very overwhelmed at that moment.

Thanks for listening/reading.

    Oh bless you! Yours is a tough situation and I'm sure it's hard to see beyond the stress of each moment. Bbut you ARE here on SP, trying to do something about your health, and that's a GREAT start for you and your baby.

    Just take deep breaths, take each moment as it comes and be gentle on yourself. Your journey may be difficult, but the payoffs--baby! renewed heath--are so worth the effort.

    Best of success every step of the way.

    Thank you for your encouragement! I am doing my best to stay positive and still trying to walk or swim each day. Got my first OBGYN appointment scheduled for 2 weeks from Thursday and I have another job interview on 4/24. Just trying not to let the nerves or stress get to me or baby.

    Keeping you in my thoughts. Keep your chin up, stay positive, and it will all work out in the end.

    Just take it one day at a time. It is a blessing that you are pregnant so just focus on the joy of that. You can handle anything that comes your way so just keep plugging away on the job search and it will come. Deep breaths and positive thoughts - you'll be OK! Congrats and lots of luck.
