I'm currently 12 weeks 3 days pregnant, after ongoing daily arguments with my boyfriend I asked my mom if I could move back in with the family around my 8-9 week mark. My hope was that even though I had gotten pregnant so young (I'm only 18) my parents would still love me and help me through these soon to be very rough months of my life. I guess that was too much to ask of my family though. My dad is constantly yelling at me on a daily basis for the most ridiculous things! He tells me that I sleep too much. I'd just like to knock on his hollow head and say helllloooo? I'm pregnant! I sleep about 7-9 hours a night and usually take a nap in the afternoon because I'm so exhausted. And since Tuesday I've had a horrible sinus infection that is giving me migraines, ear aches, and a swollen throat that makes it difficult to eat. BUT he'd rather I be up doing yardwork and cleaning the inside of the house while he's at work. He has no respect at all for what I'm going through and how I feel. I cry about EVERYTHING(!!!!) and he looks at me like I need to get over myself. PLEASE anyone with advice on how to handle my dad would be appreciated! I can't handle the constant stress between trying to avoid him being mad at me and feeling like if I don't nap I'll throw up from exhaustion!!!!Answer Question

Sorry you are not feeling well & arguing with your Dad too- that's alot to deal with when your emotions are already all over the place with being pregnant- i would just tell him that you appreciate him letting you move back home & the last thing you want to do is disappoint him but, you really are doing the best that you can right now- and then everyday; try to do a little extra when he is not around- he will notice & he will cut you a break- every time a argument starts- just let him say what he needs to & let it go.. he can't argue with himself! LOL:) wishing you lots of luck with your new baby!

Did anyone else have trouble sleeping the day they gave birth?
