Hello Im new to the forum so thought I would just say hello! I am currently 24+2 weeks pregnant and not having a great time this is my first child and was not planned, although not planned, me and my partner of 3 years are over the moon as are our families
My pregnancy hasn't been so straight forward, luckily I have had a lot of morning sickness, still am and lot of fainting which is down to me not being able to keep anything down! My partner is fantastic and really helps a lot, but he works 13 hour shifts, 7 days a week! He helps as much as he can but is very tired as you can expect! I am currently not working which really upsets me as I have worked since I was very young. I left my job to start a new one two months ago, but the job fell through for certain reasons and I am now jobless and really really struggling to find another job, I cant go back to my previous one as they have already filled my old position. It is so upsetting, and we could really do with the second income to make things easier, especially as their is going to be a third mouth to feed! But as I am finding out... not many people are keen to take on the 6 months pregnant woman.
I am so bored and I just feel completely useless. I worked so hard for the job I got and when it fell through I just did not know what to do with myself. My family are so supportive and keep telling me its a great time to not have to work, but like I said, cost of living isn't cheap these days and could do with a second income!
On a better note, we know we are having a little boy and are over the moon Im sorry for the down post but it does feel so good to get off my chest!! I hope you are all well
