Woohoo, congrats Twag and welcome to the world Elliot. Looking forward to some pics and more birth details.
The house is messy as hell and hubby says he's too tired to take care of it... it's driving me nuts and keeping me from relaxing. How much activity is acceptable a few days postpartum? Is cleaning the house OK?
Just listen to your body Flower. If you want to do a bit of light housework it should be fine but not if it hurts you or causes you to bleed more than you have been.
House work can wait. Just take it as easy as possible. Tbh I think men are pathetic. You have been through all that and THEY are too tired. It's a joke. My oh is useless at night. He said to me to wake him if he fell asleep. I'm like hello, you should be looking to make sure I don't fall asleep when I'm up all night feeding! Gets me so mad I just tell him to go to sleep cos I stand seeing him fight it and look so pathetic. Probably hormones but it drives me mad.
Flower, I'm the kind of person that always over does things...so id say light house work is fine. Maybe if he sees u doing it or sees the product of u doing a bit, he'll offer to help.
happy one month bday to my baby!
Happy one month to you wee one goldstns. That's flown by xx
Have all the Jelly Beans been born now?
Not yet!! We have a handful in the facebook group still!
ugh I couldn't agree more. DH thinks because he goes to work all day that he doesn't need to do ANYTHING. He told me he'd help me with DS1 bath and bed time. Does it happen? Nope. When I mentioned it last night, he said "but I gave him a bath the other night" as if that means it bought him a few more weeks/months of not doing it And while I did bath/bed last night, DH took a nap on the couch. When I came back downstairs after showering myself, he was awake and the living room was still a complete mess from DS playing all day. You'd think he could at least pick up the clutter while I do everything else.
Sorry, we just fought about this last night so it's still fresh.
Flower, I would be ok cleaning, just don’t do too much at once.
DH did a half day yesterday because our toddler was stressing me out. So when he got home he made himself lunch and took the baby and laid down on the couch with him to "put him to sleep". Which meant he was going to try and nap with him. Oh, I let him have it! He acts tired a lot...even though he sleeps through the night while I am getting up to nurse and change the baby. Drives me mad! He at least does help with cleaning. I just need him to make sure I am taking care of myself.
I found the first couple of weeks it hurt to do too much but this week I have felt much better. I would leave it, let it get messy and you will naturally feel ok to do more. If it really bothers you ask OH or your mum or a good friend to help you. I know what you mean, mess still stresses me but I try and tell myself it's not important, my health and baby are priority!
My OH has been amazing,I do need to ask him to do stuff instead of it just getting done but if I adk he does it and he is so involved with his son, he even does one of the night feeds when he has to go to work all day. I am extremely lucky I know! But I do still find things annoying like he will give baby a bath and I will go into the bathroom and the bath is still full, dirty clothes on floor, nappy in bag on floor etc etc and then I do the clean up operation! He thinks he has done me a favour, he doesnt realise that when i do bath time i clean up too. But that's men for you they can't be as good as us!
3weeks after, mastitis 3blood transfusions, a blood clot and both of us with colds we are on the mend. Unfortunately my husband got a week off work so I was on my own with baba my DH works from 6.30 to 7.30 so we do be like the walking dead come evening. We love our little guy so much and we went for lunch and dinner on Tuesday for my 30th birthday!!
