to think that just because your pregnant does'nt mean you can be lazy?

My friend is 20 weeks pregnant with her 3rd child. She appears to spend a lot of time lying about or sleeping. AIBU to think this is lazy?

Do try harder.

RustyBear Sat 01-Nov-08 15:11:31

Yes YABU - you can't possibly know how tired she is feeling.

BBBee Sat 01-Nov-08 15:11:59

maybe she is having a tough time, maybe she finds pregancy tiring.

whyh would you need to have an opinion on it - unreasonable or not?

dontbelazydaisy Sat 01-Nov-08 15:12:30

Its a serious question. I am slightly miffed that she seemd to be reating so much.

dontbelazydaisy Sat 01-Nov-08 15:13:37

BBBee, because I did'nt have a rest when I was preganat, like lots of others i just got on with it.

I felt like shite when pg.
If you are 'concerned' then lazy is not an appropriate word.

Im 32 weeks pregnant and still in my PJs, DH does 90% of everything in the house at the moment,

in his words...' well its the ONLY few months you get to be lazy and relax, the rest of your life you'll be dealing with 3 kids'

Just how does this affect you may I ask? Unless she is also your childminder or employed by you in some other capacity it seems to be none of your business to be quite honest.

Why on earth are you "slightly miffed" How odd.

that is ridiculous, the tiredness you can feel in pregnancy is not something you can physically try to oppose

nickytwooootimes Sat 01-Nov-08 15:14:37

Oh, well, good for you being a martyr.

Not everyone can get on with it.

lazy old heiffer kick her

Some people really struggle when they are pregnant. I did - I was either throwing up or feeling knackered.

Why are you miffed about it?

onepieceoflollipop Sat 01-Nov-08 15:15:08

I had such severe sickness I was hospitalised. I literally could not eat or drink for many weeks (was on a drip). So excuse me for saying so, but I was knackered by 20/22 weeks and deserved every bit of rest.

EnchantedWithEdwardCullen Sat 01-Nov-08 15:15:12

With my first pregnancy i just 'got on with it oo'

My 2nd aswell,

this 3rd pregnancy has been hellish! You don't know how she is feeling... Im STILL throwing up, have SPD and dizzy spells!

YANBU. You are being a troll.

And a really boring one, too.

onepieceoflollipop Sat 01-Nov-08 15:16:13

custy gives good advice. If it is such a big deal ring her up and say "you are a lazy cow and I am not your friend anymore" She would be well rid tbh.

My MIL had a bit of a dig when I was carrying DS1 (over hoovering ffs).

What she didn't know was that I'd had a threatened miscarriage and raised BP, so HAD to rest.

And whilst carrying DS2 and DS3 I had to do whatever necessary to reduce the risk of raised BP to avoid hospitalisation (I was hospitalised at 31 weeks with DS1).

mamalovesmojitos Sat 01-Nov-08 15:16:41


pregnancy is different for everybody. i hope this is a joke.

dontbelazydaisy Sat 01-Nov-08 15:16:52

I don't think it is fair.

onepieceoflollipop Sat 01-Nov-08 15:17:03

Hope you are not resting expat wink your only 40+1 you know. Should be washing the roof or something. grin

misdee Sat 01-Nov-08 15:17:09


i am ehausted this time round. no idea why as my stress levels are lower. but spend a lot of time asleep.

unknownrebelbang Sat 01-Nov-08 15:17:31

And a colleague sneered at me about pregnancy being a "condition not an illness", the week before I was signed off sick by the GP.

nickytwooootimes Sat 01-Nov-08 15:17:37

Fark off now, there's a dear.

findtheriver Sat 01-Nov-08 15:18:06

Beat her around the belly with a blunt instrument. That'll make it fair.
