    Default I WANT gastro!!! VENT

    So DH has gastro (although i am yet to even see him spew) and has spent ALL day in bed. Makes me think...i wouldnt mind a bad case of gastro if it meant i could spend the WHOLE day in bed.
    He get crabby with me cos im tired cos DD just had her 3rd birthday and ive been super busy orgainsing it, plus work and general looking after the kids, house etc.
    I ask him to change DS's nappy ONCE today and i get a rolled eyes and sigh!! He actaully said to me this morning 'i cant do anything, you have to just act like im not here'
    IM telling you RIGHT NOW, if it was ME who had gastro, id still be expected to cook dinner, clean the house (or it DOESNT GET DONE), change the baby's nappies and he'd probably even ask me to go fetch him LUNCH!!!!!!

    Sorry, i feel much better now!!!

    Nooo, you don't want it because you'd still have to go about your daily life! I'm one of the very few women I know who has a man who will let me sit on my bum at the mere sight of a sniffle or a tiny bit of PMS (which, incidentally, I barely get since I moved in with him).

    I don't know any other mums who have this same right to rest when unwell.

    I'll admit I've had gastro-envy in the past. The fast weight loss sounds good sometimes! Lol

    I want gastro, over a weekend so DH can look after the kids. It has to be bad enough make me lose at least 5kg. A nice bonus would be a reduced appetite for about 6 weeks afterwards. I reckon that would be good for at least 10kg

    Seriously tho that would annoy me jennibear DH does step up on the rare occasion i am unwell (once that i can remember since the girls were born, and my eldest is 4)

    I had gastro last week! You don't want it, I still had to run errands, look after 3 kids, breastfeed, no sleeping for me, still expected to clean I lost 2kg in one day I was super excited but I needed energy so I ate really well and put it back on so it was clear to me I just need to burn those kgs instead... You poor hun, I need a rest too!

    While I agree you don't want it - cos it sucks - when you're sick you shouldn't be settling for him to slack off and leave everything up to you! Totally not fair!

    I understand that sometimes he might not be able to get leave etc to care for the kids so you can relax... but when he IS home, he should be sending you to rest and organising dinner and baths and bedtime himself. Even if all he does is go through the maccas drive-through... it should be done so you can rest and recover.

    Hear, hear.

    You do NOT want gastro. I've had it more times than I care to remember, and it is the worst thing ever. I wished I was dead each time. My sister and her baby just had it last week, and my sister ended up in hospital hooked up to IV for fluids.

    I would be P!SSED if someone asked me to do something while I had gastro.

    Sorry that you have had a rough time.

    men are just so annoying when they are sick not to mention hopeless, but us mummies just keep on going when we are sick.
