    im feeling so horrible today i wish i didnt have to get out of bed. my lil boy is in some sort of do anything to annoy mummy mood, he even woke up way to early he woke up at 3am, if he dosent have a sleep today im going to scream.
    my house is still a huge mess after the party on sunday, ive been in so much pain, i have to clean it up today tho or dp will have a mental, and i dont want to listen to it. he was already in a bad mood this morning because he had to get milk, yeh i made him go i wasnt taking the boy out in the rain. so it was my fault he had to go get it.
    im sick of this rain, i cant even put my lil boy outside for half an hr to get some peace, instead he just stands at the back door screaming at me cause he wants out. a part of me wants to let him out anyway.. i mean its only water.. but its too cold and im not dealing with a sick kid, i just wont.
    well we find out on thursday if dp gets to keep his job, probation for it is up then. so lets hope.
    i cant belive my phone has toatally died, so now i have no actual people at all to talk to. just the internet world, oh well kinda good knowing no one will interrupt me other then my boy.

    well i hope everyone is good.

    Rain does tend to trap people inside, and test patience! It rained here for two weeks in school holidays. Bs ended up sitting at the window waiting for the rain to stop for five minutes. He would go out and play, then come in when it started again.

    Turning off phones is good. Keeps everything quiet!

    Oh I know isnt this rain ridiculous. I have given up and let my DD out in it, she loves to play in it.
    Its not a bad thing with a dead phone, just means you have to put up with us instead and we love you so dont worry, lol
    I hope your DH gets to keep his job, do you have any doubts?

    where are you, better not be eating pikelets without us, lol

    Stopit Caz youre makin' me hungry


    Ok question time ladies.
    I know some of us are not feeling any kind of connection/love towards our babies in utero, just wondering if we are ALL feeling like this? And any ideas on what to do about it, if anything?

    I just dont think about my baby. And when it kicks, it annoys me instead of making me smile. I havent bought anything for him, and have no desire to though some of that is because i cant be bothered going out in public, I dont think about him or wonder the usual stuff like what colour his hair might be or what name to pick, Ive told DH to pick a name and I dont care what it is...WTF???
    My head tells me to do all the right things, but my heart isnt there yet...why is that??? IF you see my ticker I went thru IVF to get my DD and to fall preg naturally is a freakin miracle, and I was overjoyed at the beginning but its just vapourised into thin air... I dont wish I wasnt pregnant or anything, just feel no emotion or love...just going through the motions knowing that I have to start making an effort for the bubs sake but its my brain telling me that not my heart kwim...

    any thoughts girls?

    I dread going out in public at the moment even though everyone keeps telling me the fresh air and company will do me good. Well it doesn't. I have to put up with all sorts of questions and comments about the baby and I just don't feel like it.

    I am still not feeling a connection with the baby either.

    I haven't even thought about names or what baby looks like or even what gender baby is.

    It is a bizarre feeling and one I don't like but just can't seem to help. I have so long to go too.

    I feel some connection, because of the kicking. But Its not what I would expect. I think too though its because DP isnt that into it, so its a bit disconnected. However, I have been fighting to connect with the baby from the moment I found out I was pregnant. We named it squishy, so we didnt have to say it, and now we knows its sex we actually have a name, so thats good. I left work to protect my baby. So that helped too. But.......I kinda dont see an end to it?!?!? Like, Im pregnant, but I tend to forget there will be a baby at the end. If that makes sense.

    shhh, Im tired and my pelvis hurts too much today.

    Having a not so good day today. Woke up in the middle of the night worrying and feeling that sadness hit and to top that off I had my little fellow sick with a fever last night and then this morning my other two have complained they are sick too so I have all of them home today. I am still not feeling well myself so it's tricky but I'll cope because that's what good mummy's do.

    Do you guys feel that even though you have your children and partners or family members around you, you still feel lonely?

    Depression is such a lonely thing to go through I find

    I just don't think anyone knows how I am really feeling.

    I know exactly how you feel Caz. I went through similar sort of feelings from about 10-20 weeks. I am much more connected with bub now that i am 33 weeks and also that i am out of the situation where i felt like i wasn't allowed to love the baby

    Aquamarine- Lots of hugs to you
    Depression is lonely because only those that have been through or are going through the same experience can truly understand what it's like.

    Same here Aqua,
    I know what you mean. And just being tired and sick yourself can really make you sink low, it doesnt tkae much to bring you down. IT really is like a yoyo effect - a few great normal days then BANG! sinking ship again.

    And yes I dont speak about it to anyone because they wont understand, it is a lonely thing.
