To think DH should entertain toddler despite hangover

DH went on a rare night out last night and is still in bed. He'll be up soon and will be suffering. His preferred way of spending the day would be to lie on the sofa groaning.

I'm pregnant, absolutely exhausted and have constant nausea. I feel like I've had a severe hangover for 3 weeks and this is likely to continue for another couple of months.

DD 16 months is no trouble at all but does demand a lot of attention. She mostly wants you to either sit and read books with her or play football. I've been doing it since she got up at 7.

When DH gets up I'll make him a coffee and a bacon sandwich but then I think he needs to do a few hours of playing with the toddler so I can finish the book I need to read for my bookclub and switch off for a bit.
So who should get to relax today? The one with the hangover or the one with first trimester exhaustion and nausea?

Both of you should
Take it in turns

I think some turn taking is in order so you both get a bit of a rest.

I would cut him some slack as he hardly goes out

Can you finish your book when she naps or when she's in bed?

I think you have taken your turn since 7. When he gets up (let's say it's 10am) you would not be unreasonable to take 3 hours to relax.

Yy to taking it in turns, dh and I pre plan stuff like this grin and Im not even pregnant. We had his family round last night for drinks so planned that Id get up with the dc at seven, he could lie in til about 11 if he wants, then Im off duty and can go for a nap/lounge in bed/go out kid free, for a good few hours.

We all have hangovers today after the Eurovision! Myself and DH are as sick as small hospitals but we've been up since 4.30 and 6.30 respectively and he is currently at the playground with our toddler.

Make him a bcon sandwich? Are you having a laugh?? He's a parent now - a hangover doesnt mean you have to be a single parent for the entire day, FFS.

My feelings are blinkered by the fact that I have an awful hangover today. I too rarely drink but had friends over last night until late.

I am on my own this morning, with a 7yr old and 3yr old. Was woken at 6 and have been snoozing on the sofa ever since whilst 3yr old watches crap on telly.

I'm feeling sorry for your dh but he can get his arse to the sofa and entertain dd in the lounge whilst you have a bit oof time to yourself.
