I've got lots of sympathy too - poor you!!

Don't worry - I shared with my brother until I was 11! Ikea have some pretty amazing space saving ideas for kids rooms if you have a little spare cash. Not the same as being there but I have heard of family skyping into weddings if they couldn't be there in person, is this an option?

Don't beat yourself up, worrying is only going to make you feel worse.

Oh poor you sad I have no advice but lots of sympathy!

Just to say that it is perfectly possible to raise 2 children happily in a 2 bed house, even if the second room is tiny, so don't feel bad about that. Take it one step at a time and focus on getting through the rest of your pregnancy. The good news is that you have made it to 32 weeks ie through the critical viability period. Things will work themselves out.

Sorry for a woe is me post but need some cheering up sad
I am 32 weeks pregnant with DC2 I have complete placenta previa completely covering the os and an irritable uterus have had a few bleeds and hospital admissions and am on limited bed rest no lifting no walking no pushing no anything which is hard with a 2 year old.
Been like this from 22 weeks had a happy 4 weeks before this and before that had terrible sickness. I feel so guilty that I am neglecting my DS who is way behind in his speech and I feel like if I was well and not pregnant I could help him more.
Today I found out that even though I have been working from home my official maternity leave may not be possible. I have my own business we have 7 employees but the way we work out our salary and dividends means it will cost my business money for me to go on maternity leave as well as me losing out in money and we wouldn't be able to afford cover ATM which means I will have to work right up to having my baby then find someway to care for a newborn a toddler and work and have the pressure of making sure we can afford to pay our employees.
We have a 2 bed house and trying to re mortgage my DH decides to tell me the. 2nd bedroom is too small for 2 to share which was the original plan I know we have time but have looked at moving to a bigger house but doesn't seem affordable in this climate.
I am just so miserable wish we had not got pregnant we had to cancel our first holiday in years and first as a family as doctors wouldn't let me fly we also probably can't go to my sisters wedding again for the same reason I am counting the hours as the days and weeks are dragging in.
I know I should be grateful as we are lucky to be pregnant and many people have bigger problems than me I just feel poo sad
Sorry for the mini essay
