    I'm sick and tired of being on edge and watching how I spend my money.
    im sad you are not having a good holiday. We were in Ho Chi Minh City in april. I found some interesting places, and the crowds were not too bad. I don't think I will be too keen to go back. Much like any other Asian city, and we have done a lot of travelling around Asian places. I hope the rest of the holiday is a more relaxing time for you. marie.

    I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself. I'm sick.... Really sick and so is DS. I had MIL lined up to come and watch DS tomorrow whilst I sit my GTT but I was advised due to being unwell I should cancel at this stage. I rang MIL to tell her what was going on and I was hoping she'd say that she'd still come watch DS tomorrow, even just for a few hours but nope. So I'm 6 months pregnant, sick and chasing a sick 2 year old. Why is it I spend all my time worrying about everyone and what they need but when I need someone... There's no one to be seen.

    I just feel so sick and want to sleep. I'm in tears I feel so miserable. I'm tired of no one giving a hoot about me.

    @HeavenBlue huge hugs you sound miserable. I know I would have trouble doing this but could you call MIL back and ask her to help? I totally understand if you can't reach out if be a hypocrite if I said otherwise!

    Can DH take some personal leave to help?

    I really hope you feel better soon. Being pregnant sick and chasing a child around is a special kind of hell xx

    Thanks, it's actually nice to know someone took time out for me.

    I could call her but I'd feel so awful. She drives a minimum of 40 minutes to come here and if be asking her to come into a house where she's likely to get sick also. I just don't feel like I can ask her.

    As for DP.... Pffffftttt. He's NEVER taken a day off for me. He's used me as a fake excuse plenty of times but when I'm actually sick?? Nope. That place always comes first I'm afraid.

    I'd ask my mum but she has to work also.

    But you're right... It IS a special kind of hell. Poor DS.. He's being such a good boy overall though. I'm just feeling guilty over all the screen time.

    I get it - I am a shocker at asking for help including from DH.

    Try not to worry about screen time - DS2 has watched sooooo much TV since I fell pregnant and have sick for most of it! Doubt it will improve when I'm stuck in a chair nursing a newborn either.

    Maybe when your DH gets home hand him DS as he walks in the door and take yourself straight to bed. This is a case of do as I say not as I do!!

    Edit - you may already be doing this but when I'm stuck on the lounge and TV has lost its power to keep DS2 amused I get him to bring me his Picturepedia (an encyclopaedia of pictures) he sits beside me and we go through it together. Sometimes it will keep going for an hour! It's what we are doing right now 😊

    He's does bring me picture books and we go through the animals and sounds etc... It does help to pass some extra time and he loves it!

    I'll see what time dp walks in the door but I'm not holding my breath on any relief. He'll want a shower and then likely he will still switch his computer on etc. he has no understanding or sympathy to be honest. I'll be very surprised is otherwise happens.

    I just sent my friend a screen shot from another app and silly iPhone said "back to bub hub" in the top corner, now I'm sure she's going to be searching the hub for me! Second time I've done that, different friend though. I like my anonymity but I don't do a very good job of protecting it!

    He actually seems to recognize how sick I am for once. He's came home early (earlier than normal anyway) and has gotten DS some snacks, me a vitamin c drink and is currently bathing DS while I lay down. Yes he still switched the computer on but he is definitely trying to help out. I'm feeling very grateful right now. Not that he's doing his job as the other parent but that he acknowledged how sick I am for once!
