Just need to vent Rss

I'm feel sooo emotional today. My DH has been away all weekend at a buck's on the other side of the state which has caused these emotions.

The issue is the buck is MY friend and so are the other attendees. I really think its completely unfair that just because I'm a woman I'm excluded from the party. Why is this still a thing in today's society. I feel like it's so old fashioned but no one else blinks an eyelid. I'm friends with more males than females and I don't enjoy 'girly' things. I found the concept of my hen's night bazar as the friends I'd normally go out with were at my husbands bucks so I had their girlfriends/wives at mine. I'd never even gone out with them alone before!

But since I've fallen pregnant I felt so excluded from my old life while DH is able to continue enjoying everything as usual. I have to give up drinking, eating, socialising even clothes shopping (because nothing fits any more and I HATE maternity clothes) while he gets to continue on as if nothings happened. I've had to deal with extreme MS, fatigue, heartburn, constant waking in the night to go to the toilet and gaining weight. I don't understand how anyone could enjoy being pregnant. I hate it. And everyone says it only gets worse and I should make the most of my time before baby get here.

I know it's not DH's fault but he doesn't understand how sad I'm feeling. My life is already completely different and I'm NOT enjoying it. And now I'm just feeling very unattractive and completely bored. What's it going to be like when I finish work?? I'll be even more bored and lonely.

Anyway, I just needed to get how I'm feeling down, so I'm sorry for my vent. I do wonder if others ever feel this way too though?
I hated being pregnant too. I love a social drink, and it sucked when I couldn't do it especially on Xmas and New Years last year!! I felt fat and unattractive too, and had all the same problems as you. But I gave birth 6 months ago and now I have this amazing little boy in my life, he is my little angel and I wouldn't give him up for the world! I have left my old lifestyle of drinking and partying behind me, but I have a different new life now, a family life and that's even better. When your baby gets here you will fall totally and completely in love with him/her and yes your life will be changed forever, but in the best way possible. Being a mum is the best thing in the world, tiring and hard work, but it's worth it. And you get your body back after baby comes. And I still socially drink, I just don't get blind anymore, I had a few coldies with my brother for his birthday yesterday, it was great and the kids all had a ball. You can still have a life and babys or kids. Best of luck.




Hi. I hated being pregnant as well. My emotions were all over the place and it made everything seem so much harder than usual. I also hated the first couple of months after my son was born however now I wouldn't swap it for anything (and we're trying for #2 even though I hated it so much). It's worth it in the end.

Anyway.... It's completely normal to hate being pregnant. Some people love it, some people hate it. Doesn't mean you'll regret it

Hope that helps.
I know you're 'supposed to' lay on your left side, but I found laying on my right side stopped all the unwanted getting up through the night to pee since bub wasn't resting as heavily on my bladder. Just be careful when you get up though.
