Pro- I say get away for a bit, then come back for a big talk. If you two can't work it out, I know counseling really helped DH and me. You deserve to be treated well and so do your kids. Do it for them if you cant do it for yourself.
Feel better soon shell and Annabelle! I finished my z pack last week. Feeling better, just can't shake the cough.
Powell- your mil sounds like she has one of the same issues as mine: entitlement. I'm thinking of confronting mine sometime soon. Get this monkey brat woman off my back. think you could ever do that with yours? Maybe we could compare notes?
arghhhh to MILs!! They can be very annoying, in general mine is but she knows better than to ask too much, although she did start going on about when could she come down when the baby is born again! And she also asked if I wanted to visit their house on the 28th may - they live by Liverpool and the baby might only be about 10 days old then! I was quite definite on saying no to that!! Weird to even think I'd want to sit in the car with a newborn for 4 hours to see them!
She's staying right now so I'm having to be really patient with her and not get too annoyed. She is trying to help but she's also very trying!!
Nearlythere - sorry about the lack of kicks, it's because your placenta is anterior though isn't it? You will hopefully feel them in a few weeks. My kicks are there but very gentle.
Up at 5.30 with DD, off to the dr with her this morning just to get her checked out. She had something similar last year and I didn't take her to the dr and it progressed into broncilitus which she then had badly over Xmas and was really poorly for it so want to avoid that this time!
Hann my lo is the same. He's unofficially asthmatic, won't diagnose til 2. But he spent most of last winter with chest infections and bronchiolitis. We were kept in hospital 3 times over December and January as he developed pneumonia......he's wheezing already so i am just dreading it. Hope your little girl gets better soon xx
I hope I start feeling more movement soon. Don't feel as much when I'm lying down as that's when baby normally gives me flutters. Did feel something when I was sat up yesterday... Think baby didn't like me sat like that as it felt like a tiny little kick. He or she is still preferring the right side of my uterus when I'm laid down too.
I sneezed this morning and it really hurt! But over the past couple of days my bump has felt achey. I'm hoping its just more growing pains!
I am wishing I could feel babies move more. Definately have felt them, but wish it happened more often. I guess I should hold my tongue for now, apparently with two, I am gonna have more than enough kickin and squirming.
As for MILs, mine is wonderful. Super understanding and respectful - love her to pieces. She asks for permission for anything related to the pregnancy and gets mad at her son if I am upset over anything lol - wonderful. I wish you all had MILs like her. (Sorry if that seemed like bragging)
Has anyone not got much of a bump yet? I feel that at 17 weeks I should have more because in 3 weeks I'm half way through and still don't look 'pregnant' just a bit fat haha! The girls at work have said they were really small in their pregnancies and then the last couple of months: boom! Big baby bump! So that's a bit reassuring.
Wish I could stop worrying! Have ordered a Doppler because I'm hoping it'll give me peace of mind when I start worrying and plus I loved hearing the baby's heartbeat!
Oh Hann! I was going to ask how it was going last night. It really stinks how much of a difference a good or bad mil can make. I had such bad thoughts of mine last night that it kept me up til 2 am. I hate that she has so much power over me.
I'm so jealous of those of you that have nice ones that are respectful and understanding.
Hope all of your babies feel better soon.
I'm also feeling pains. Weird ones at that. I'm telling myself the pain is LO doing her thing in there. Makes me feel much better about feeling not so hot.
