I am having my first real irrational/hormonal/teary night tonight and DH does not know what to do with me
Im feeling so fat and frumpy, my clothes don't fit, my shoes aren't even comfortable and Im tired and my body is aching from carrying around the extra 10.5 kg, and DH doesn't tell me im beautiful (not that he ever has been the type to say things like that off the cuff)
So what do I do, cry, don't finish my perfectly healthy dinner and then eat chocolate and ice cream OMG I am my own worst enemy
Thanks for listening to my vent.

Miss XamX- thank you for your birth story. I can relate to you on a couple of things. First, the pushing. I struggled with this too and felt I was tensing up against the contractions for the first part of each one as the pain was immense. Despite all the hypnobirthing practice! I never really had the urge to push, that bearing down you hear about. But my midwife said for first vaginal births it can take women a long while to get the hang of it, so don't beat yourself up. I was only pushing 15 mins before I required intervention due to her heart rate, but also felt I let myself down by needing the vacuum then forceps. I've come to terms with it now and know it wasn't me, I just didn't have a chance to learn how to push due to her having difficulties.
Also, i never felt that immediate rush of love for either of my babies at birth. I thought Meadow looked odd at first too. But it didn't last long.
I think its good to talk honestly about these things

MissX, thanks so much for sharing our story, and for your honesty. It's sounds like you had a rough time of it. Just remember you are amazing!! You brought a baby into this world, that is a fantastic achievement. You have nothing to be ashamed of. And I completely agree about the epidural. I will definitely be having one next time.
MrsLA, I hope you are feeling happier soon. Pregnancy messes with your hormones big time. I'm sure you are looking gorgeous. I'm sure your DH thinks you're beautiful, he just isn't one to say it. Eat as much chocolate as you want.

MissX thanks for sharing. Sorry you had a crappy midwife to begin. Don't be ashamed of anything you did, birth is so frustrating when you are trying to explain things and people just don't get it. You did great!
MrsLA Anyone growing a baby is beautiful and has permission to eat what they want whilst pregnant. Be kind to yourself!\

MrsLA, my dp is a bit of a sausage too and just has no idea how to say the right thing! Enjoy your ice cream :
No word from the hospital so I hope that means I'm clear! I'll probably be nervous until Wednesday though.
I didn't have to fast for the GCT. I ate dinner as normal, then brekky (porridge) about 2 hrs before the test and then nothing. I wouldn't eat a bowl of fruit loops before it though!
