It's ironic how I needed the most support with cleaning, cooking, work etc during that period of exhaustion during first trimester but as I wasn't showing (and most people don't know) a lot of help is not forthcoming. DH always thought I was bunging it on. I remember stumbling into bed 7-8pm every night.
Around 9 weeks was when the exhaustion hit with me too, for all three of my bubs. I used to get home from work and just collapse.
Yeah poor DH, I'm sure he feels like I'm bunging it on. I keep saying it's hard work growing a human. Combine that with my complete inability to do normal people things at the moment because of my sunburn (I'm hobbling around because it hurts to walk, which means I can't be trusted to carry things like drinks etc at times when the pain is really bad). In saying that, he's been pretty good and we've had a lot of laughs at my expense. Despite spending most of the morning dozing I was still ready for bed around 8:30. Managed to stretch it out till the end of Oceans 11 though cos I wanted/needed to be able to take more panadol before going to bed!
Happy but sad DS is 6 today where did my baby go!
Happy birthday little guy X
I am wondering if there are any photographers amongst us? My brother is an amateur photographer and I'd really like to get him something special for Christmas. I can't remember what camera he has now, I know it's an. Olympus. He has a FB page of his images, not for selling or anything, just for fun. I could probably spend $200 on him as I didn't get him a birthday present
I am sitting in a motel room, by myself, 5.5hrs from home. Watching a movie and eating Red Rooster in my first night away from the kids.
I feel so lonely
Defeated... You both beat me today little ones.
