So my first tri wasn't great, since i was in bed most of the time, and my 2.5 yo DS had a hard time but we made it through with lots of support from DH and doing activities in bed (reading mostly).
While I am out of bed now, and trying to be more active with DS, I am still pretty fatigued, having round ligament pain and yesterday after taking him to swim lesson had several (what i think) were Braxton Hicks. This made me and DH nervous enough to decide i probably shouldn't be picking up DS as much (DS is about 35 lbs).
So this morning, DH went to get DS out of the crib instead of me and DS had one of the worst meltdowns i have ever seen him have. He was hysterical for me to pick him up. I offered to walk with him holding his hand to the kitchen for breakfast, or to come cuddle in my bed for a little to calm down. Nothing. This went on for what felt like an eternity. Finally i told him that i hurt my back, because it didn't want to make it about the baby. This seemed to help (he then wanted to fix my back with the new drs kit he just got :).
This is not going to be the only time he wants me to do something that I can't. I wish it hadn't happened so soon, and i am going to try to stay active so i am not incapacitated but I felt so bad for my DS this morning.
Any words of wisdom? How do I help him through this?
