Re: just a vent - I'm never going to sleep again!
I agree with Keen wholeheartedly. Right now, you are doing you and your children (including the unborn baby) no favors by staying up constantly in effort to avoid the crying. Crying is not the worse thing in the world and for most kids, in my experience, it really isnt more than a tough week of transition before things are WAY better. Please consider that at this point, some crying in order to transition to better sleep habits IS what is best for the whole family. You wont be able to continue at this pace forever.
