Ok, so I've spent too long cruising through MN, I'm still rather poorly with m/s and feeling very fed up of being stuck indoors. I live far away from my family and friends don't know im preggers yet so awkward to socialise.
Luckily (unluckily?!) I was made redundant a week before I've found out I was pregnant and when the worst of the sickness hit, so I've been able to rest up whilst ill but it's starting to get old. Any suggestions for what I can I do to pass the time/ feel less cabin fevery when I still feel this sick?!
Note I am job hunting but not with much luck and I dread to think how an interview would go as I tend to turn a bit green when out and about!
Tiredfeet Thank you! Mumsnet has been my lifeline, Im so glad for all the lovely people on here and some of the silly threads have kept me up when I've felt my absolute worse.
I honestly thought pregnancy would be accompanied by glowing skin and ethereal beauty but alas, its mainly consisted of people telling me I look awful and carrying round my trusty sick bowl wherever I go! Starting to be able to laugh about it on my good days so I hope that means it will be getting better!
I hope you feel better soon as well, I'm a first timer but at least you know how worth it it will be. I have utter respect for anyone with HG AND kids already! you must be a hero! x
Awww I really feel for you. I have suffered with bad morning(why they call in morning when it lasts all day)sickness up until 30 weeks and been stuck at home. The good news is most peoples sickness/nausea stops after 12 weeks, so fingers crossed this will be the case for you.
I know when ive been stuck at home I have been doing lots of reading about having a baby and really educating myself on what to do when the babys here, so i feel really organised upon his arrival. I know reading things online and in books is slightly different from the reality but it has made me feel much more confident as this is my first.
Ive also done alot of online shopping(slightly dangerous,haha) but its much less stressful than going into the shops on busy weekends.
I agree with a few other people who have mentioned knitting, that will be fab to do and also you will feel really proud of yourself once you have finished your cardigans/blankets and know your little baby will be wearing them.
how are you doing sickness wise, are you managing to keep some stuff down I hope?
I have just bought a colouring book today and some felt pens as I kept stealing ds you can get ones for adults / older children on amazon. nice when my brain is fuzzy and I can't face tv / computer/ noise and its quite soothing I find.
llike babyfev last time round I did a lot of reading about pregnancy and birth and babies. it did help me feel a bit more prepared and to focus on the positives of why I was going through the horribleness.
