    hi

    just wondered if anyone else is struggling to do things already. when i was pregnant last year with my little girl i worked full time in an office so i didnt really do a lot of physical work. when we lost our little girl we started a massive DIY job in our flat. we still have odd jobs in each room to do but we are on the last room which is the front room and its has a little hallway as well. before i fell pregnant i would of painted that in one day on my own well within about 5 hours. i aimed to do that today but by god i have struggled. i just ended up doing the little hallway and thats it :dohh:i almost fell off the ladder because i was balancing and i think i strained a tummy muscle too :nope:

    also almost tripped in the front room as dh and his dad have left it like a bomb site. when i asked him to tidy it tomorrow when he and his dad work on it i got a load of sh*t off of him. said i could do it myself would you beleive!! i ended up having a right go at him. i dont know many women who would be up at ladders 19 weeks pregnant painting especially when they have had a stillborn baby last year!! argh men

    sorry that turned into a rant anyway are you struggling to do things that you once just found so easy xx

    i am struggling to even tidy up hon. and stop going up bloody ladders. it really isn't worth the risk. tell them to pick up their own crap. i want to rant along with you now.

    i sit on the sofa and look in despair at all the things that need doing in my living room at the moment. we've been sorting things to get rid of and there are boxes everywhere... but i just can't bring myself to get off the sofa and do anything about it...

    Laundry is my biggest struggle right now. i certainly wouldn't even attempt a ladder though! My balance is all off.

    Go on strike! Or get your midwife to tell your guy that you aren't allowed to be on ladders because you probably shouldn't be at this point since your center of gravity has changed.

    With my DD i was at college full time 5 days a week (until 33weeks) and working 9-5.30 (until 36weeks) at weekends then coming home, doing housework and STILL managing gto find energy to go out and buy baby things etc.
    THIS time round i barely have enough energy to play with my little girl and cook dinnner let alone anything else! Lol
    I think it defiantly does get a struggle! And i know what you mean abiout OHs mine is just as bad if i ask him to move anything! :growlmad:

    Yeah I struggle to.. No one seems to understand though lol. One minute I feel fine the next it takes me half an hour just to get off the sofa to go and get my PJs on.. And you wanna tell your OH if he wants the decorating doing to get up that ladder himself and do it instead of getting you up there!!!!

    Ugh me too. I made a killer "honey do" list for my hub. It was stuff I could totally do, but don't want to. I find watering the Christmas tree a bit tricky with this belly in the way, I'm just not coordinated at the moment!!

    I work at home, too, and look around and see all the tidying that needs to be done, but I don't do it. Much.
