pull yourself together woman and stop moaning

Mum2OneAndBump · 19/01/2006 14:13


Whats that then

jersey · 19/01/2006 14:13

Afraid I can't answer that as I need to know how to get through another 5 and a half months feeling like death with tiredness!

Any suggestions I would also be grateful .

Enid · 19/01/2006 14:14

I have done nothing BUT moan this week

am enjoying new role as victim

stop fretting over kitchen cupboards (ie nesting) and you might be less exhausted

sit down and have a flick through the channels/heat magazine/baby name books

"you think you are tired now, wait til the baby's born"

(and other equally annoying cliches)

The twee reply is "You will cope, because at the end of it, you will have more time to spend with your beautiful new baby".

But honestly, you seem like a great mum, who is suffering a little from pg hormones this week, and it will pass in a week or two.

Plus you have MN - you'll be fine

Enid · 19/01/2006 14:14

Ermm know the feeling i am 40 weeks today & have Zilch energy, even doing the washing up & taking Ds to nursery is nearly killing me!!

Must admit do have some good days though but today is a no no.......

Can hardly walk remember that stage ?

MissChief · 19/01/2006 14:18

swim? snooze? stop work early - get dh to do everything when you get home? work from home??

oliveoil · 19/01/2006 14:18

shall I get your small violin out that you played for me last week? Tut.

Pretend to work. Walk around with a file looking like you have somewhere important to go to and look vital.

Place loads of papers on your desk and tap on a calculator mindlessly.

Lonelymum · 19/01/2006 14:18

Know how you are feeling enid. I had that with all my pregnancies but I only worked the first so at least I didn't have that added pressure.

I now get that tired every month when I have my period (why? never did before! why now?) but at least it only lasts a day or two. Dh's line of sympathy was "And you want to go back to work?" as if caring for four kids is nothing.

Anyway, moan over. Sympathies offered. Nothing useful to say.

VeniVidiVickiQV · 19/01/2006 14:19

ooh err! recognise in a good way i hope!

was queenvictoria, and formerly vickitiredmum.....

im busy with the name changes....

give it 2-4 weeks and it'll pass - you will get a new batch of pg hormones then.

nailpolish · 19/01/2006 14:19

what is it you do enid? (if you dont mind me asking) could your boss help you out so you make it through to the end

(like me - im a nurse, and the sister gave me permanent nights and i used to fall asleep on my break and the others would let me kip for about 3 hrs, it was great)

maybe you could have a zedbed in your office. do you have an office?

Enid · 19/01/2006 14:19

lol oo you were going on holiday though. I already do that at work - spend ages on mumsent pretending am designing new brohcure

OP posts:
Enid · 19/01/2006 14:20

am thinking I might work from home next week for a few days if no better

OP posts:
VeniVidiVickiQV · 19/01/2006 14:20

Although, that may also mean that your energy comes back in a huge rush, and everyone will be ducking for cover as you flip into mad rages over nothing

nailpolish · 19/01/2006 14:29

enid are you physically tired, like sore legs and all? have you got a footstool at the desk?

your lights are not too bright?

youre not staring at the monitor for ages and ages?

expatinscotland · 19/01/2006 14:30

you can do it, enid! i hear ya! i stopped working one week and two days before i gave birth, so i KNOW how much it sux.

hang in there.

nailpolish · 19/01/2006 14:32

do you have a long commute to work? if so maybe you could arrange set days at home, working.

even the thought if it will make you feel better

VeniVidiVickiQV · 19/01/2006 14:43
