I know just how you're feeling. I've been on maternity leave since i was 10wks pregnant - i had low blood pressure and was really dizzy all the time, so left work early on doctors advice.
At first it was alright because my boyfreind was off work as he'd had a big operation on his shoulder and was recovering. Plus we were moving. Then he was home for a while, while he was looking for a new job.
But when he started work, i had to spend all day, by myself, with nothing to do. Id just sit around and twiddle my thumbs thinking 'i wish i had something to do' or 'i wish i had friends to visit' as all my friends work too.
I felt lonely and depressed too for a while and some days i still do, and i still cant wait till pregnancy is over and i have a little baby to play with or at least talk to, or wear me out so i can complain i need sleep!
Ive found going to the library and getting out books to read about babies, pregnancy and labour keeps me amused for a while, n helps with the excitement - you read all these things and think 'oh - i cant wait till i can do that!' At the moment i have books called 'The Pregnany Body', 'The pregnancy and Birth Book', 'Baby Massage', 'Every Parent' and 'Back in Shape After Baby'.
I think its probably normal to feel this way toward the end of pregnancy. And you only have 6 weeks to go! Same as me! So just keep your chin up and if you want to chat and have msn, add me ... [email protected]
-im usually on there.
