Sorry for the ramble that flows and I know it's my own doing but I just feel really rubbish at the mo. it could be pregnancy it could be living with the in laws. I could describe it as a general lack of motivation at the moment, in basically everything. I look a mess, my skin is awful as is my hair and I can't be bothered to do much about it. When h is on nights I find if I dont get dressed before he comes home (6am) then I have to wait until he gets up (3pm) to get ready as he is asleep in our only room. I can't do washing, tidying or ironing when he is in bed as all our stuff is in there, in our own house id do it in the rest of the house. my maternity clothes are getting on my nerves as most were from my first pregnancy with c, we aren't in a position to buy more so I feel like a frumpy tramp. Then it's a vicious circle, I scant be bothered socialising because I feel minging.
Reading this back it sounds pathetic, but tbh that's how it is at the moment. I don't know if its just pregnancy hormones, or if I need a good kick up the ar5e. Anyone else feel like they have completely lost it during pregnancy? Or am I being a wet lettuce!?

Sorry to hear you are feeling rubbish hun. You are not being at all pathetic or a wet lettuce. If i was living in one room with H in the inlaws' house i would be in prison for murder by now!
Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Are you getting your own space any time soon?
I feel the same about my maternity clothes - all from last time and looking bobbly and old but no money to or not worth replacing now. My fuzzy pregnancy hair is scooped back with a hair bobble with short fluffy bits sticking up everywhere because i cant be bothered to straighten it! I made a real effort when i went out with some mummy friends on Friday and felt i looked good for once and i got jeered at in the street by a group of young lads so that made me feel pants again.
I really hope things improve for you soon. Could you treat yourself to something small just to pick you up a bit? Coffee and cake with a friend? A manicure?

Our house is supposed to be ready in September but in reality that could change. So yes there is a light at the end of the tunnel, thank god!

Oh and I took your advice and am meeting up with a pal for coffee and cake while C is at nursery. Now I need to straighten my hair and iron some clothes in prefer to leave the house!
