I’m so sorry you’re going through this!  I’m in my last month of pregnancy and I’m feeling pretty blah myself.  I don’t really have any advice, but I hope you feel better soon!

Seems to me like the big problem is mom! That sounds like a situation you still need to address. Not an appropriate comment from her, at all.

@Quietserenity:  How RUDE!!!  I’m sorry you have to go through that.  It sucks that your Darling Husband isn’t around as much to support you.  It sucks that your mom is so rude.  It sucks that you are yacking again 🙁  Throw yourself a little pity party, find a sitter, and have a hot date with your husband this weekend.  Lord knows you deserve it!

@Quietserenity:  Awe!!! Your mom seems like a ball of flipping sunshine! (insert eye roll). That was horrible of her to say! I sure hope you can get past it and know that your healthy and look wonderful and the most important person, your Darling Husband, thinks so as well. Cheer up love! The end is in site!!!

@Quietserenity:  Sweetie, I’m so sorry, that’s awful!! Congrats on the weight loss/maintenance during this pregnancy – I can’t even imagine how hard it is to lose or maintain weight when you have all those cravings. It sounds to me like you’re doing great, and hanging in there with your DH’s long work days – I get lonely after even an hour or two of being alone, so I 100% understand how difficult that must be. I agree with the PP – hire a sitter and go out on a much-deserved hot date!

Oh my gosh, what a horrible thing for your mother to say – even if it was the case, which it sounds like it’s deifnitely not, why would a mother say something like that just to make her child feel bad?!

I think you should compromise this weekend – go get a haircut and your nails done, relax, but then maybe find a babysitter so you can go out to eat and/or to a movie with your Darling Husband. And tell your mom that if she ever makes a rude comment like that again that conversation/visit will be over.

@Quietserenity:  People who say the kind of things that your mom did have issues that have NOTHING to do with you.  It’s hard, but try to remember that no sane person would say that to any woman- let alone a pregnat one!  If you (and your doctors) are happy with the way you’ve managed your weight, than that’s all that matters.  Negative people are the worst=( Maybe run away for a couple hours and do something to pamper yourself, then spend the rest of the day with your Darling Husband.

@Quietserenity:  Your mom is a big, old B-word LOL

Please do not take offence to that – a lot of mom’s are. I’ve had my mom say nasty things like this to me (starting at early as 8 years old) It’s like they forget you’re their child (or maybe they feel more entitled to saying these things BECAUSE you’re their child) but ignore it 🙂 Your doctors’ opinion, and our DH’s opinion matter. Not hers!

Also, congrats on the weight loss! You work it!

Is there anyone (friend or family) who can take your Dirty Delete overnight, maybe Saturday night?  If you dropped her off early Saturday evening, you could have a relaxing night with your hubby and then enjoy a leisurely morning before picking her back up.  One of the hardest things to do is to ask for a break when you need it, but it sounds like you need it, and I’m sure someone would be more than willing to help.

((hugs))

@Quietserenity:  Holy hannah, can I come give your mom a talking to?! What is her problem?! Sweetie don’t you take those mean words to heart! You sound like you’re doing amazing. Keep all the positive words in your heart and mind, and push crabby mean people aside.

I agree with the PPs, hire a sitter and take some me time, or have a date night with Darling Husband. Do what you need to to make YOU happy. (((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))

@Quietserenity:  You should totally go run off and have a day all to yourself & do whatever you want! Seriously!!

And I’m really impressed that you’ve been losing weight/staying the same throughout your pregnancy… now that I’m pregnant I understand how practically impossible that is to do.

Can you get a babysitter and go out on a date with the husband?? I think that would be a great idea.  Maybe make your mommy dearest do the babysitting.
