    Default How do I make them see??

    I'm 27 weeks pregnant and feel like death most days.

    I have no energy, I feel constantly nauseas, I have sore hips, I'm not sleeping well.

    Yet my parents, with whom I live, honestly think I should just push past it all and clean, or cook or go shopping.

    What they don't get is that on the days that I feel half way good, I do! It just happens that these are maybe 2 out of 7 days!!

    I'm just having a whinge and I know there's a billion people out there worse off. ("wait till the baby's here", "at least I don't have a toddler to look after", blah blah....)

    I get it all day!! Lol

    I'm sick of having to say I'm
    Sick too, why can't they just accept I feel sick, very sick most of the time and will do things when I'm feeling good?!

    I suffered from debilitating pregnancy exhaustion. It was dreadful. I feel your pain. And for the record I felt 100 times better within 3 days of my dd's birth.

    I don't think you can make people see. I have just stopped saying how i really feel (sick and exhausted) because it always gets dismissed or minimised which makes me feel so much worse.

    This!!

    What makes me upset then though is the attitude at why I'm not doing cartwheels of happiness all day!

    Unless you have felt THAT bad, I don't think people can possibly understand.

    I have been there and you have my heart felt sympathy. Really.

    Be kind to yourself, and try not to let it get to you.

    Chances are good that you will feel a lot better when your baby is on the outside.

    HUGS.

    Peaze... I'm here for you!!! Most people who have never felt crappola in pregnancy just think suck it up and get on with it! Ahhh if only it was that easy. More annoying though that it's the support system around you. Remember to just rest and ignore it. When the baby is here your parents will probably jump up and love to help you out, hopefully and the stinky attitude will be a thing of the past.
    I get this attitude all the time from people. I will never ever treat anyone badly like that.

    You know what you cant change other people or make them sympathetic, just try to explain it to them and then if they are still unsupportive in that way, try your best to shrug it off xx
