I'm currently 11+5 and thoroughly fed up. I am ill, exhausted, bloated, blobby etc etc etc and can't summon up the energy to do ANYTHING. Can't even keep up with the laundry/cooking, let alone tidying up the tip of a house. Taking older dc to their after-school things is just about killing me off.
I'm sure I will feel a bit better about everything once we've had the scan and can at least tell people and hopefully get a bit more help with stuff. I'm hoping that even 6yo and 4yo dc might step up a bit wishful thinking
But when will I get that pregnancy buzz? You know, the one where you float around like Mary Poppins doing all the jobs under the sun. Or do I have an overly-romanticised view of what pregnancy was like for me last time? Maybe I was in fact a miserable sod all the way through and the memory has been clouded out by the lovely faces of newborn babies at the end of it
I didn't get that feeling last time and vaguely wondered if I'd missed out. It hit at about 20 weeks this time and was an itch/ache at the back of my head listing everything I needed to do, but without giving me extra energy to do it. At 3am it was just unpleasant and stressful.
I'm now 35 weeks and that feeling has stopped. Still loads to do to prepare but at least I feel like I can manage it all now!
Duggee I had that- I was too ill to do much but wrote lists for my dh and would lie awake picturing the contents of cupboards that needed organising. I am glad I got some jobs done before dd arrived though as there wouldn't be a chance to do them now.
I'm 24 weeks pregnant this week and have dispensed my cleaner 4 weeks ago, the thought of not getting things exactly how I want in my house drives me mad, I don't know if this is a nesting sort of feeling, the first 3 months of pregnancy I was feeling very ill so couldn't even cope with DS school run but now that I'm ok I spend a lot of time with my house, it's not something I can do easily , there are 5 floors and I have 2 dogs , I still send ironing to get done elsewhere but just seeing how sparkling clean the bathrooms and hallway marble floor is after I clean it brings me comfort.
Lol at 35 weeks... it wasnt a beautiful snow white and the forest animals clearing up job though... much more like "oh my god if I dont get this place looking exactly how I want to in the next few hours I'm going to cry and my head will explode"... it also involved throwing out a lot of things that probably could have been put to better use but just wanted them out of my sight 🙈
I'm 11w, cleared out the spare room and moved furniture from there to the living room etc. weekends of weeks 9 and 10, I'd like to think to pro-activeness will continue, but I doubt it. I get like this with everything in my life, really overly obsessively do something for a month and then swap to something else.
I'm 28 weeks now and I had it from around 20 to 23 weeks where so much stuff got sorted! I've now given up and OH is doing all the building of baby stuff and tidying and I am just waiting for baby to be here ...
