Dear Edith: Finding Meaning as a SAHM

FemCatholic Dear Edith Question on finding meaning as a SAHM

Dear Edith,

I have a question and a prayer request.

I just recently stopped working (was let go from a small nonprofit because I missed work during my first trimester with extreme morning sickness) and now I’m at home and I’m struggling with what to do. The first couple of weeks weren’t bad, but now I’m alone during the day, pregnant with our first baby, and trying to understand where God wants me to be. 

I’ve always wanted to be a stay at home mom, but this “before baby” has me wondering what to do with my time. I’m starting to get depressed because I have skills and talents but instead of using them, I feel like there is not much I can do at home. I don’t have a lot of joy right now. I do attend daily Mass, which helps me a lot.

My question is: what do stay at home wives do? What can I do that might make me feel worthy of staying at home right now?

My prayer request is to pray that I can see God’s blessing in all of this.
