All I do is lay around and eat. I think I'm starting to annoy my husband...oh well with that. I just have no energy. I did do the dishes twice today and I vacuumed the carpet in the living room. I'm done now. Parked on the couch watching reruns of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. I'm so happy to be pregnant and feeling so bad, but I feel like a bad mom and wife.
I feel the same way, although I don't feel too bad about it because I typically do most of the household chores. My hubby can take his turns My energy comes in (very) short bursts, one of which will allow me to unload and load the dishwasher. I'm normally passed out on the couch by 8.
If I had the option I would be doing the same thing. My DH works in the Gulf and is gone for 21 days at a time. I'm exhausted all the time and the nausea is starting to hit. I go tomorrow to pick him up and I know that most days he is home I will prob be on the couch. After doing it for 21 days by myself I think I deserve a little break lol
You are growing a baby and its exhausting...I'm sure DH understands
I feel like a bum, too. But the SO is being super supportive and hasn't really let me do much of anything. I only made supper tonight because he was napping and he didn't notice until half way through cooking. He's done the laundry, dishes, and has been making meals since we found out. I can't express how thankful I am for that because I know if I was doing it all on top of working 40 hours a week at a job where I'm on my feet 7 out of 8 hours, I know I'd be having a breakdown.
I've been useless for the past week lol, been so sleepy and just been laying around all the time, I still manage to get around and do housework but my house is not as clean as it usually is. Oh well DH hasn't complain and he better understand. I feel so bad for my DS who's been so bored. But this tiredness will pass as soon as the 1st trimester is over(I hope) lol
Same here! I did nothing all weekend except we went to get groceries but other than that it was football and reading for me. DH did all the cleaning and cooking, I did do laundry but he did a few loads of that too. Usually I'm up cleaning and half done by the time DH and DS get up on Saturdays. During the week I'm worthless after work, I seriously feel like I took NyQuil or something. Ugh!!! I hate it, I feel like I'm neglecting my kid
I came home today with the intention if eating dinner then going to Target to get supplies for gift bags for my son's birthday. I ate dinner then sat on the couch. I haven't gotten up. That was an hour ago. Uuugggghhh!
This post cracked me up! I can so relate. I have had two loads of laundry in the washer and dryer for the last three days. I don't want to move. Between chasing after my toddler, and all of this new bean's energy sappage, I am SO beat. Those dishes are staying in the sink for now, thanks.
Yeah, it hit me a couple days ago. I'm a total slug now too and I'm eating like crap because nothing sounds good, which is making it worse. And on top of it all, DH and DD have been sick and now I'm getting it! I was totally a bad mom today. Lots of TV time. Zzzzzzzzzzz...
