I'm 26 weeks pregnant and DH is away for the weekend.
There is a massive storm outside and i have a power cut. And I'm feeling a bit pathetic. And I only have 10% battery left.

You are fine, feeling over sensitive and anxious can be part of pregnancy (prepares you for parenthood!).

Not got the storm up North (Yorkshire) yet so blow it up our way.
Snuggle up in bed and if you've any ear plugs might be worth a try.

I'm awake!
I know it feels really odd when there's a power cut, everything feels somehow extra dark, doesn't it?!
Are you cosy, if not can you get yourself up to bed and tuck yourself up?
Everything's ok flowers

I'm up. DC1 has just turned 18 and is on her first proper legal night out <<sob>> she usually just goes to Wetherspoons and another music venue type pub and comes home, but tonight she's gone full on clubbing and drinking.
I feel a, old (I'm 37) and b, worried.

Hope your power comes back on soon flowers

I’m up, woken by the storm

TitsNnails Sun 27-May-18 00:52:27

Can you rustle up some candles? (I'm at work, here all night)!

AnneLovesGilbert Sun 27-May-18 00:56:02

You’re alright OP smile

Darkness can be so comforting and cosy. And you’ve got friendly company here. The storm will pass. Try and get some rest flowers

Omg op does your name meant you didn't count Mississippily??!

Have you got a torch, keep it by bed if so. Also I'd save battery and go to bed.

ScreamingValenta Sun 27-May-18 01:08:11

flowers Hope your power is back soon.

Illusive01 Sun 27-May-18 01:16:02

Power will hopefully be back up quickly, dropped a few times here but back up and running 👍

SneakyGremlins Sun 27-May-18 01:21:11

I want the storm to come up here sad

ScreamingValenta Sun 27-May-18 01:23:38

Goodness, I don't want it coming up north, SneakyGremlins. I was hoping to mow the lawn tomorrow! grin

SneakyGremlins Sun 27-May-18 01:26:18

But we haven't had one for YEARS sad

Can't you nip out and mow it now? grin

LanguidLobster Sun 27-May-18 01:27:16

Had thunder and lightning earlier. Why do you want that Sneaky?? Cat has gone bonkers, she looks like yours.

It's ok OP.

SneakyGremlins Sun 27-May-18 01:28:22

I love thunderstorms so much!

And it sounds like your cat has gone mad and changed colours as a result to look like mine grin that'd be impressive

LanguidLobster Sun 27-May-18 01:30:29

No mine's resolutely black like yours smile

I'd be quite impressed if she did a boy george however

SneakyGremlins Sun 27-May-18 01:32:04

I hope OP has fallen asleep smile

I'd love to but it's the weekend which means drunks. Yaaay. <bitter>

ChangoMutney Sun 27-May-18 01:34:15

Another one waiting for an 18 year old. I'm shattered and want to go to sleep

LanguidLobster Sun 27-May-18 01:35:14

Is it just down south that we've had the storm? Actually I can hear a fair amount outside

ScreamingValenta Sun 27-May-18 01:35:36

SneakyGremlins I feel an AIBU coming on: AIBU to mow my lawn at 01:35 am?

QuestionableMouse Sun 27-May-18 01:39:23

If you have a laptop you can charge your phone from that. It isn't be great but it might help.

Bloody freezing where I am in Sunderland!

SneakyGremlins Sun 27-May-18 01:42:03

ScreamingValenta don't forget to add "because another MN user told me to?"

ScreamingValenta Sun 27-May-18 01:45:27

SneakyGremlins Of course.

Then we can sit back and wait for the appearance of 'AIBU to be annoyed that my neighbour is mowing her lawn at 01:35am (because someone from MN said to) ?' from the people next door. grin

Illusive01 Sun 27-May-18 01:47:36

My internet sucks after the storm!

SneakyGremlins Sun 27-May-18 01:47:48

grin perfect!

I always see you around a lot, but never really said hi before because I thought it'd look weird blush especially since you're on many threads!

Taken some painkillers, got a massive headache hopefully sign of impending storm
