I have morning all day sickness, a stinking cold, and it's about 5 below outside. Bed seems a highly attractive destination at the moment.

However: I have chickens to clean out, an errand to run (although I can't go anywhere unless and until the car hand brake thaws) and my mum here who know nothing of my pregnancy. How to handle this?

Yeah, about 9 weeks (not holding my breath but looking OK so far). Thanks!

Blame it on the cold - stomach flu if you're puking too. Go back to bed. I am as soon as DS goes down for his nap! grin

Tell your mother you have norovirus and go back to bed.

The chickens won't mind for another day I suppose. I was feeling great this morning and cleaned the guinea pigs out (one weight off my mind). Having a cold is quite good actually cos it means no heightened sense of smell atm, and less queasiness. Not actually puking (lucky me) but more like indigestion.

go back to bed. also, not scare mongering but when i was PG was told by midwife NOT to go near the chickens espec. the poo.

Any reason you don't want yor mum to know?
don't know your circumstances so feel free to ignore!

She may have been confusing chickens and cats, manky... Although maybe chickens can pass on toxoplasmosis. Anyway I grew up in France scoffing unpasteurised cheese so am almost certainly immune to toxo (my sister was tested in London and is immune).

I was pg in france and afraid the Brie de Meaux was just too much of a temptation, for me too!!!!
