I'm just about 7 weeks along and for the last 2 weeks or so (since before I found out I was pregnant) I've been feeling progressively ill every day. I haven't actually thrown up, but I feel nauseated a lot (kind of like motion sickness) and haven't had my usual energy because of it.
Don't get me wrong- I'm still 'functioning'- still keeping up with all of my chores and I do all of the housework (we're in the process of moving so I left my job some months back) but I haven't got the same go-go-go momentum I'm accustomed to having.
Anyway, my husband and mother-in-law are making me feel SO guilty for wanting to rest more than usual. My mother-in-law didn't have Morning Sickness with any of her pregnancies and she's convinced it's just something other pregnant women make up as an excuse to be lazy...
Based on her experiences, my husband has been MAJORLY guilt tripping me every time I want to lay down or claim I'm not feeling well. He keeps telling me it's "all in my head" and that there's no such thing as morning sickness! He is REALLY making me feel awful about it.
I know this isn't in my head. But I just don't know how to respond to him (or my MIL for that matter- who called me again today with her no-such-thing-as-morning-sickness rant).
The whole thing is just really irking me, and causing a lot of unnecessary negativity between myself and my DH. I would understand if I was slacking on the housework or laying about 24/7 but that's far from the truth.
Any suggestions or words of wisdom?
