YANBU. All justified reasons for ranting.
My only rant today is about how cold it is sad angry. It isn't even September yet and I've got the heating on [bloody cats won't sit still long enough to warm me up]

You know people are only ever nice to you in your first pg. I'm getting crappy comments too, I should be able to get loads done with dd here even though she doesn't sleep, even though my mum always moans she can't get anything done when she's got dd, oh and her dig gets her up at 5:30 confused

Reality someone is going to come and tell you not to mix work and family in a minute grin

Rant away, being 37 weeks pg is vile whichever way you cut it. Can you just retire to bed for the rest of the weekend?

Re the first bit-people can only comment on such things if you give them details!

And people taking children out-part of being a CM, surely?

sorry but at 37 wks pregnant I wouldn't want you looking after my kid, what if she starts running away, you'd hardly catch her

I know at 37 weeks I couldn't run round after my 2 year old, so we didn't do much at that time, watched a lot of tv and stayed in the garden. If I was paying a childminder I'd expect a lot more than that for my money.

As you well know, looking after your own kids is different from paying a childminder to look after them.

Give her a bill to cover your maternity leave grin.

Go back to bed it is beyond grim to be 37 weeks pregnant.

ssd Sun 28-Aug-11 09:04:25

sorry, am snippy too!

at least you have pregnancy for an excuse grin, I'm just a nippy cow

Tee2072 Sun 28-Aug-11 09:04:34

I think it was around 37 weeks that I announced I now knew why women went into confinement and refused to leave the house.

Of course, I wasn't a child minder!

<plumps up reality's pillows, strokes her hair and utters 'there there, it will all seem better after a nice rest'>

ssd Sun 28-Aug-11 09:07:22

also, why do you want a homebirth, isn't it a bit gruesome messy? don't you worry you might need a bit of medical intervention?

I don't like toast crumbs in bed so giving birth in it, yuk!

your sister could be jealous of you, you know

you get to spend all day with your lovely kids and new baby to be soon, and also spend all day with her kids, and all she has is money and a good maternity package to crow about

although I do honestly think mixing family and business never works, although I fully appreciate in these tough times you might not have a choice

take care, try to put your feet up
