I am secretly glad I am starting to feel crappy from my flu injection yesterday, cause I really cbf going to work tomorrow, would much rather relax at home while dp is away camping all weekend. How desperate for some time out for myself must I be!
If I don't want dh to try and Dtd with me I say I've got a sore back and rub some heat cream on myself- he can't stand the smell so I know he won't go near me ☺️
I also have tiers for dirty laundry so I can wear them several days in a row. So for work days where I know I'll be working with other people I'll wear 100% clean clothes, for work days where I know I'll just be alone in my office all day I'll wear something I've worn once before. And for days that I'm home with DS and just going to the park or shops I'll wear something that I've already worn 2-3 days. (So long as there's not obvious food stains or something of course! And always clean underwear each day!)
I also wear the same socks all week which sounds bad but hear me out! I only wear them for 1-2 hours per day (I take them off at home or once I'm at work), so if it's ok to wear socks continuously for one 12-hour day, then it should be fine for me to wear them for six 2-hour days.
Anyway, it means I get through the week with just 2 shirts, 7 sets of underwear, 1 pair of socks, and 1 pair of jeans (that I wash about once a month).

I know, I even asked the GP last preg and this preg too. Last time she said she had never heard of no coffee in pregnancy. I wasn't working last time, so I did give it up (still had 2 cups of chai though)
This preg, I work full time, have a 2 yr 4 m old who hasn't slept through the night eve. So I am running on 3 years of sleep deprivation, I need my coffee to function lol.
when I was preg my dh pretty much gave up all the forbidden food plus alcohol with me. I think that's a nice touch
