People want to help and this is one time in your life you need to take it!  Imagine how guilty you would feel if you lifted something heavy, fell, and hurt the baby (goodness forbid!).  Trust me, the guilt you are feeling now is way better than the alternative.  Just think of it as part of being a good mommy.

I’m with you! I’m almost in my 15th week and am waiting for this supposed burst of energy to come and for MS to end. I’m a teacher and have been sitting down a lot and having students come to me instead of the opposite. My husband has to cook all of our meals because I can’t stand the smells in our kitchen. Seriously… I’m ready to feel a little more useful again.

I’m the exact same way! Just keep telling yourself that 1) this is good practice for asking for help, which you WILL need once the baby is here, and 2) this is the last time in your life that you will get a break; after this you will be someone’s mom and you will never again get to ‘take it easy’. Enjoy it now.

@Songbird29:  I’d enjoy it while it lasts! People LOVE to help pregnant chicks. And you get to tell them al about your sweet little baby! It’s win-win!

Do  you get a nice feeling when you help someone? So does everyone else! You are helping them be happy! It’s what makes a community nice and everyone who participates and observes it is better for it.

I totally hear you on this!  The other night I didn’t want to be a nag, so I dragged our new (fake) Christmas tree in from the car.  It was awkward and moderately heavy, but I could still handle it (or so I thought)… I was so winded from carrying it 20 feet.  And the next day all of my muscles in my midsection were sore!  DH made me promise that that’s the last time I do something like that.
