I have been feeling so terrible since 5 weeks- nausea, exhaustion, constipation, headaches, achy muscles, bloat, rhinitis... you name it, I've got it. Until this past weekend, no one else knew I was pregnant so I could only talk to my husband about it. We live in the town I grew up in and all his friends are oversees, so he has no one to grab a beer with and talk or laugh about the tribulations of pregnancy. Sunday I got him a funny dad-to-be book and he's reading that now, but I feel like I am a constant drain on him. I told him all of this yesterday, but he didn't really say much like "It's ok, I know you don't feel well." He barely said anything at all, just listened. I don't know what I was expecting but it didn't make me feel much better. He is doing about 90% of the housework right now, and I can only cook sometimes. He has never once complained or acted like I was a burden or that he was angry he had to do more.
I want to do or plan something nice for him so he knows how much I appreciate his support, but I also want to give him a break from me never being in good spirits. I am not moping around all day, I just am quieter and not peppy. Not to mention I am super emotional just the last few days, and feel terrible, like I'm doing this to him. I know everyone will say not to be hard on myself, but I need to do something for him so we both feel better about everything. Any ideas?
