Vent

I'm so happy to be pregnant and so happy to be having twins........but I just CAN'T get used to not being able to do things. I do almost everything around the house (DH does help, he has assigned chores!). I am trying to ask for help, but it's so hard for me. I'm having trouble bending over at all now, I can hardly get up and down, even from a seated position......I know it's all for a good cause, but it's really tough for me to swallow sometimes. DH and DD are being great and helping out - I just don't like to ask for the help! I know I have to, but it just SUCKS!

Ok, vent over.

oh i know, my boss wont even let me sweep the floor-rolls eyes-shes so paranoid and wont let me do anything since previous mc, she came back from lunch one day to me loading a case of water and yelled at me-it weighs way less than my son does so whatever. dh is pretty good at not letting me do stuff-which just reminds me that i need to clean the bathroom but we dont have a window in there so he needs to do it, but i just usually stop when people tell me to and pout a bit...but i wish my dh would wash our son more but he wants mommy and im more efficient at doing it, my hubby tends to rush things and not understand how my son wants things done, it just works more smoothly when i do it...

I know how hard it is for me to get off the couch or bend over right now so I can't even fathom how it would be with twins! I do feel your pain though. I'm frustrated with how hard it is to breathe. Honestly, I don't remember it being this achy and all with my other pregnancies.

I hear ya! Why is it so hard to ask for help? DH & DD are both awesome and never complain about helping me out, but I still hate having to ask them to do stuff I would normally take care of. I am glad they are so willing but I still have guilt about asking.

I'm right there with you Erica, we are on the home stretch!! My issue is shortness of breath. I feel like I can't catch my breath all the time. I don't know how I'm going to make it to September.....I feel gigantic right now!

Thanks ladies! I had a very emotional Saturday - I also cried at the mall because I couldn't find a dress for my baby shower!
