    just came over me on Saturday!! And today in work I wanna be left the hell alone. My new maternity clothes (trousers etc) are already to small so decided to pop to asda after work and pick up some nice stretchy maternity leggins and my hubby called me and said his mum wants to come with - dont get me wrong love her to bits but just wanted to dive in and out half hour on my own! Grrrrrr nearly burst into tears when he said! And people are nagging me no more than usual in work and i feel like saying "F Off" the lot of you!! Anyone else feeling like this?!:cry::cry::cry::growlmad:

    Big hugs :hugs:

    Nope, not yet... BUT I have noticed that my social calendar is beginning to look like a full time job... :wacko:. Don't know if it is complete coindicence or, if being pregnant, I am suddenly more in demand... :shrug:

    Your body and mind are going through a LOT of changes at the moment, the most important thing is to get some space and to learn to say "No" (politely but firmly). Just say (for personal things) that you are a bit frazzled and tired at the moment, so would rather just go shopping (or whatever) on your own. With work (well depends on your position and what you do), but you also need to set expectations and not take on more than you can manage ("yes I can do it for you, but it wont be done until..." etc).

    Learning to say "No" is very important: things will only get worse and, once the baby is born, EVERYONE will want a slice of the baby and you. I already have people asking me if they can visit me in the hospital (and I am only 17 weeks!). I am trying to learn to be more positive with the answer (they mean well), but - to be honest - I am trying not to think that far ahead at the moment... :wacko:.

    So learn to set boundaries and learn to ensure that you (and husband and baby) get the time alone you need NOW. Then it should be easier to say "No" later on :winkwink: AND you wont feel so "put upon" :hugs:

    hey hun, i was on here yesterday, feeling very emotional, ive took the advice of the girls on here on board and have been feeling a bit better..

    just remember its ok to say "No" and make your feelings known, tell your OH how you feel, but know that you are not alone :)
