    Default The Not So Serious Vent Thread #6

    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!

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.
    Hugs HeavenBlue. I understand exactly how you feel. I am sick, DS is sick, and I just want to curl up in a corner until it all goes away. I don't even want to lie down because I can't breathe.

    I went to the pharmacy to ask if there was anything at all I can take while pregnant and breastfeeding. "You can use the Fess spray. You could try something like sudafed, but you can't use that for more than 5 days and some pharmacists recommend not using it at all. Take some panadol and drink lots of fluids." (I know it's not your fault but) thanks for your help!

    I have to say DH has at least recognised how unwell I am feeling. Could have something to do with the paleness of my skin, the heart palpatations or my general lethargy. Not sure which one has done it, but I got a nap this afternoon, and DH actually kept DS quiet and away from the door.

    I hope you have a speedy recovery. Sending as much positive energy as I have x

    Hugs @HeavenBlue and @Tiny Dancer.

    We are so silly aren't we? We get sick and want someone to recognise that and offer. We don't ask. And then we struggle and blame ourselves for not asking.

    I don't know what the solution is. Its easy to say just ask for help but It's inbuilt I think to martyr ourselves in the hope people will realise how much we sacrifice to no available.

    Many many hugs. I hope you both get some rest. You will survive. Try not to make it too hard on yourselves and get brave and ask for help!

    I feel for you mumma's. Pregnant, sick and a sick little person is definitely a special kind of hell. I had it happen to me a few weeks back although it was my 2 under 2 sick and me just not coping.

    Please look after yourselves xx

    Thank you all for the wonderful kind words and support, it's more than I've gotten here at home.

    When I said that DP was helping out, I spoke too soon. 5 minutes later he was calling out to come and get a hysterical DS from the bath so I could dry and dress him. He did sort dinner but that was reheating some left over pasta bake and making a cheese toasty for me. He then just yelled at DS the whole time because he didn't want to eat, except some of my cheese toasty. I was happy to share because I wasn't able to eat anyway. I then got to do bedtime and came down to the mess. At 830 I declared I was going to bed and without even looking at me he just said 'k'.

    I came down this morning to a trashed kitchen, last nights food scraps still in the bin (because the Otto bin 2 meters out the back door is too far to go) and just general mess.

    Mil was very quick to excuse herself this morning from providing any help because apparently she has a headache and yesterday she felt a bit achy. She's not even sure she can watch DS on Thursday now when I'm meant to go to work.

    Sorry, this has turned into a massive vent again. I guess I'm just over it all and being sick has tipped me over the edge. I'm tired of being alone and doing everything on my own. I don't feel loved or appreciated one tiny bit these days and I generally just feel alone and uncared for.

    This is NOT how I thought I'd be feeling with my second child on the way. I'm genuinely considering leaving because I think I would feel more whole and happy alone rather than living with someone so selfish.

    Sorry, ranting again.

    Thanks ladies. I really do appreciate you taking time out to show a little kindness and empathy. It really does mean a lot.

    And massive hugs to you too. It's so bloody hard isn't it? I'm glad your dh is helping you out though. It makes a massive difference.
