1. Hi Trisheena, I am so sorry that you feel as though you are being pulled in so many directions. I am not sure if you have other children or if this is your first baby but your body is working very hard in growing your baby. Pregnancy is a time to care for yourself as much as possible. It is important to get enough rest, to eat properly and to prepare for your new arrival.

    This is the time to share with those around you the importance of this and to not overwork or over-stress yourself. I suspect you are pretty tired and asking for help may allow you to slow down enough not to feel as though you are taking on the world.
