Im not sure about the beauty bit (certainly do not feel like the glowing pregnant figure you see in mags/as depicted by everyone else) but am sleeping quite a lot these days.
Now those who knows me, knows that my fav location in the house is in front of the tv, where i am usually taking a nap or watchig ANTM (or Amazing race, if i was back home). But this is beyond ridiculous. I spent the weekend just sleeping 3/4 of the time.
I blame not having anything to do, no new ‘projects’, no exams to study for (yet). I have facebooked till boredom, reading or watching tv makes me go zzz. M is studying ALL the time for his exams so no one to entertain me. So bored was i that i ironed (almost) all of M’s clothes. ok i must admit now that i dont usually iron his clothes. This is due to the fact that I get up earlier than him for work (he gets AT LEAST half an hour more sleep) and that I work longer hours. This all means that between the two of us, I spend less time at home and when i am at home sweet home, am knackered.
That said, I tried to convince him to see me taking more than the 6 months paid maternity leave. He thinks ill just be bored. After 2 hours straight of ironing, he may well be right.
Being a housewife is a thankless job too me thinks!
