My Future Brother-In-Law just got married Oct 28 to his long term Gf. They were orignally supposed to marry May 25, but found out in Sept that she was Pregnant, so they married at the courthouse for the insurance and whatnot. Anyway, his wife, who we”ll call K, has always been the needy type, both with my Future Brother-In-Law and his family. Many of his family members dont like her, but they Love him so they deal. Ever since she has gotten pregnant she has been the laziest person i have ever seen. Maybe i am over reacting because i have never been pregnant, but i have seen friends, my SIL, aunts and Sister all Pregnant and very active, healthy, happy women. She complains ALL THE TIME about everything from not being able to eat this and that, to cramps, to being tired. Now i am not saying she isn’t, I am aware that pregnancy effects women differently and yes you will be tired with cravings and cramps, but this girl takes it OVER the top. shes only 4 months pregnant talking about its hard for her to get up, she barely has a belly and how she has to go to bed early because the baby is tired. Like STFU oman its so annoying. I just don’t get how Some women turn pregnancy from a blessing, into a disease
Ok I feel better now:) thanks for reading

I’ve not been pregnant but my sister has been thrice and I’ve been around the whole time – she almost NEVER complained! And with the first one, they were telling her she could die because of a blood disease they thought she had – she actually doesn’t – and she NEVER complained about it! In fact, she would try cleaning and stuff and I would be like, no go sit down, it wasn’t until like, the last month of each that she would be really lazy. lol
Your Future Sister-In-Law is too dramatic. Her poor children, and your poor FBIL! I hope things have gotten better!

Now every woman is different and pregnancy effects them in different ways, but I have been there, with very problematic and high risk prenancy and I dont think I was ever like that. That being said, maybe she just likes/ wants extra attention and feels like thats the only and or best way to go about it. I’d try to take with a grain of salt and let her have her “moments”, but I definetly feel like shes pushing the envelope a bit. Good luck!

I am 11 weeks pregnant and I can tell you that these early months are a killer tiredness-wise. I literally wake up and am ready to go straight back to sleep – the sleep thing luckily is the only thing I have to deal with. One friend with her prgenancy was no more tired than usual, but vomited contantly, and was hospitalised because of her MS, whilst another suffered like me with tiredness as well as sickness. Each person is different with their pregnancy. Some do overplay the whole thing (My SIL was too tired to do any housework or care for her other child, but if you just mentioned shopping or a night out – and BAM she was instantly better!), but for many others, pregnancy really is not a walk in the park – I think it’s safe to say that your cousins and aunt sound quite lucky!

I haven’t had to spend extensive time with pregnant women, so I don’t really know what’s excessive. There’s definitely a limit though; lots of women get pregnant, and most of them still have to work, spend time with friends, pay bills, do basic housetending things, etc. From the going to bed early, that kind of makes it sound a little more legitimate. But having trouble getting up with barely a bump, I dunno.
Can’t really speak to the matter. Never been pregnant myself.

@buzzyplush: Oh how I wish tiredness was just in my mind lol…. To be fair I am working min 10 hours a day, 6 days a week in a really hot and humid climate so my sleep isn’t too great. We were actually discussing last night about DH’s cousin who’se one month ahead of me. She’s quit work as soon as she found out, her mother is there at her house daily, cooking and cleaning and she literally sits around and “rests”. That, to me, is a little over the top… If she was a high-risk pregnancy I’d get it, but nope.
