    The struggle is real

    So I've come here for a bit of a winge/whine but not so much a vent.

    My partner is orthodox and they follow a 40 day rule when it comes to certain life events. Childbirth is one of them. So I'm not meant to go out (and nor is bub) for the first 40 days except for medical appointments. So I'm stuck at home. For 40 days. Unless one of us requires medical attention. And nobody besides family and maybe a few close friends are meant to be in the home to visit. For 40 days. I nearly went mad last time when I had DS. I don't know how I'm going to do it this time. Maybe lucky this house is 2 storey and I can spend time up or down or at least enjoy a view of the park from the 2nd storey. Anyway... that's my whinge/whine. Thanks for reading.

    40 days?? Eeeeekkkkkkk!!! I quite like the idea of 40 days off of from things like school/daycare runs, shopping, chores etc, but not leaving the house at all would send me crazy! And I am a homebody!

    I can't say I'm upset about not having to do the shopping etc but yes, 40 days is a long time to watch everyone else enjoying their lives on social media etc!

    Wow @HeavenBlue. I'm orthodox too (Serbian). I remember you saying once that your husband is also. That 40 day rule is pretty old school. I know that we went to church with him after 40 days but there was no way I wasn't leaving the house! I planned on staying in for a while (more due to my own anxiety I think) but cracked it after a week and had to get out. Do you have to? What would happen if you said you just had to?

    Yep it's old school and his family like me to follow it. I asked him if I could maybe walk around the park across the road a bit. He ummed and erred but he really didn't like the idea. I'll be working on him though as time passes! It's so funny, he doesn't attend services regularly or anything but is very traditional on some other points.

    My dad is Orthodox (Greek) and there are a lot of 40 day traditions there too. He wouldn't expect my mum to follow that one as its his tradition. Shame you can't swap and make him stay home for 40 days. Would his family even know if you walked around the park or around the block even?

    It's not that big a deal right now as I'm recovering from a c section and I'm having massive pain issues. Problem is, DP is as adamant that I not go out as his family is. Meh... I guess I'll just keep working on him.

    Wow that must be weird @HeavenBlue! I find it all very interesting, I love finding out about other religious/cultural traditions. I'd definitely go crazy though! Can you leave the house without Bub?

    I'm at swimming lessons with the kids. DS1 has moved up a level :-) They whinge every time we come but I told them they have to be confident swimmers because water is very dangerous. So they're ok with that for now.

    @HillDweller I just love your writing style. Your pregnancy journal is awesome. Please keep it up even after you've had your little girl. Just make things up for me ok?
