    Default I'm pregnant not disabled...

    Dear paranoid friends and family,

    The last thing I am going to do is put my pregnancy at risk, but I am also not going to wrap myself in cotton wool and act like I have paper bones!

    I can mow the lawn, I can vacuum, I can even rearrange the house if I want, and I promise I will be fine at the end- trust my ability to care for myself appropriately...

    Lol sounds like my DF! He snatched the vacuum off me every time I got it out this week and then told me 2 days later how unusually lazy I've been this week. EXCUSE ME!?

    Ditto! No special consideration here either

    Shhhh! Don't let my DH see this!!!

    Iv convinced him pregnant women arent allowed to vacuum or mow the lawn, or be near the oven/stove top for too long, or stand up for too long.

    Tell me about it! I tried carrying a tray with about 4 drinks on it at an engagement party last night and had two people try to take it off me and say "you shouldn't be carrying that you're pregnant!"

    Aww. I want this problem! At 36 weeks I'm still lugging around my toddler, moving heavy things and not getting offered seats in public. I want my DH to get the memo... He complains when I don't do things to my usual standard. I'm exhausted!

    Yep opposite problems here. Every time I'm pregnant, even with twins, even looking after 3 toddlers, I am meant to carry on as usual.
    But I can see why you are frustrated though!
