Maybe this is just a rant but hopefully some other women are experiencing this along with me. It's been a long, tough pregnancy with morning sickness for over 7 months now. It's alleviated some but some days are bad and some are okay. I have had to cancel trips, plans and have in general felt very excluded and left out of many things. Mornings are decent for me so I try to get out and do things like exercise and coffee chats with other pregnancy ladies. Overall I've watched my husband go off to work (which he really enjoys), go out with friends to dinner and parties and social events in general while I stay home not feeling well. It really sucks! I don't give him a hard time about it but just think it's a really unfair aspect of being a woman and the one who bears the children.
I'm normally a social person and have been really missing this aspect of my life during these months. I'm trying to understand that right now it is my "job" to be taking care of myself but I can't help feeling angry and resentful of my husband (and men in general) who have no idea what it is like to grow a baby, much less be so sick the entire time. They probably take it for granted that they can just get up and go do whatever they want whenever they want. I'm trying to get out of this negative thought pattern and see the positive. Anyone else experiencing these types of things?
