Ah, this is a great post : ) Most of all, I am sick of feeling tired all the time! I feel so worn out after I come home from work that I don't want to do anything. Secondly, I am sick of gaining weight. I have gained too much weight and have been told by my doctor that I should try not to gain anymore. How am I suppose to not gain weight when I am hungry all the time?!? I try to eat healthy, but when you are eating a lot, it's going to start to catch up to you. I am also tired of wearing maternity clothes. I have grown out of some of my pants. Thanks to living in a smaller community, I have to drive to get to a maternity store that carries tall. I am sick of shopping when I can't seem to find the crap I need! I am ready to feel like myself again : ) I hate having to roll out of bed in the morning, because my stomach is in the way. LOL.
i agree, good post! Jade_21, i feel you!!! I'm almost 36 weeks and feel SO huge!! I've already gained 50 lbs, which is depressing b/c i keep thinking about how hard it will be to lose it once I have him. I feel like i'm passed the "cute" pregnancy stage and now just look repulsive. Rolling out of bed is annoying, but less annoying to me than the constant back pain and the need for a back pillow everytime i sit on a couch. My feet are beginning to swell (midly) if i stand for too long, which at this point includes the length of a shower. I'm SOOOO exhausted, that I'm torn between feeling grateful that I'm not working (we moved to another state at 30 weeks) and depressed that I'm not contributing. I realize each time i go out, that people don't see "ME" they see a pregnant lady. EVERYONE looks at my belly first, then my face. Its karma, b/c i did this to other women too and I will NEVER do it again...i had no idea how it felt (i wasn't being mean, just curious). I miss sleeping a full night through, and worry about how tired i'll be when we have our son, and won't be ALLOWED to sleep, despite my ability to do so once i'm no longer pregnant. Everyday my feet feel like they have stone bruises, and when my husband and I walk somewhere, he tries to pull my hand and i have to yell at him not to pull me, b/c i can't walk any faster thanks to the pubic bone pain i have more days than not. I've outgrown my cute pregnancy clothes, and am stuck in the in-between stage again of pants that are too big and pants that are too tight. And I worry that the lovely hemmorhoids will rupture, b/c they feel so big!! (sorry...) It should suffice to say that I'm grateful to experience pregnancy first hand, for the first time, but I'm definitely ready to have him and start the "getting back to normal" process and meet my baby! Pregnancy should last 8 months, not 9. that extra month is just one too many in my opinion!
bioblock, I had to giggle a little at your post, because I know what you mean about feeling repulsive. I can't walk anywhere without people looking at my belly first and then my face. it's so big that I hit things with it when I walk, and i've been asked at least 5 times if i'm only having one. When random ppl ask me when i'm due, I shave a few weeks off because I just look disgustingly huge for only carrying one baby. ugh. I can;t wait for it to be done and over with. i'm even 2 weeks behind you.
I'm with you girls! I'm only about 33 weeks right now, but I'm definitely starting to feel huge. People actually tell me I'm still small, and I just kind of stare at them. Are they kidding?? If I'm small now, how am I going to feel in 6 weeks!!!??? At this point what I miss the most is being able to sleep. Now, I realize that I won't be sleeping much once he gets here, but hopefully even if I"m only getting an hour or so at a time, I"ll actually be SLEEPING at that point! I'm so uncomfortable all night that I don't sleep for more than 20 or 30 minutes, and I'm tossing and turning all the time. Each time I wake up my hands are numb (and then they HURT!) and my hips and shoulders are killing me. I just feel like no matter how much "sleep" I get at night, I"m not really sleeping.
On another note, I didn't think my feet were really swelling that much, except for one day where I had been on my feet for over 12 hours three days straight. However, I went to get new shoes this morning, because my only pair of flats were falling apart. And I had to get a size 10!! Which isn't too bad, but I wear a size 8!!! At least my feet are more comfortable now.
However, even when I'm feeling SO uncomfortable, and can't believe that I still have 7 weeks to go (!), I really do LOVE being pregnant. I love being able to have him with me all the time, and feel him kick and squirm around inside me :-)
lavenderinscience, I don't mind if you giggle....i was kinda going off on a tangent. Although I have to add something you made me think of. You said u're so big your belly actually hits things, which reminded me about the size of my growing butt. It is literally SO big now (it was already big pre-preg) that I hit it on things like corners and stuff when I walk by. At 33 weeks I impaled my *** on my grandmother's kitchen drawer handle as I tried to squeeze between the drawer and a chair. I was mortified to realize that I didn't even know the square footage of my own butt!!! :)
bluegenie2003, I'm right there with you on the hands/arms falling asleep and getting unrestfull sleep, if we can call it that. Just as I find a comfortable position and fall asleep, i wake up about 10 to 20 minutes later to limbs that have decided to play dead. It's these types of things that no one warned me about. Ever. It will all be worth it in the end. Repeat after me. It. will. be. worth. it. (mantras help sometimes, no?) :)
Ok, I am really getting tired of getting dressed in the morning. So some of my old pants are getting a little too tight, so I got some bigger clothes. The bigger pants are like tents on me! It's not like I want to wear tight pants when I am preggo, but I don't want to wear pants that I look like I am drowning in either. I really wish I could just start wearing sweat pants everywhere : )
im soo p!ssed off. but i have to say reading these post cheer me up lol..
for some strange reason i am extra fat today.im tired,ive got bad period type pains,and severe diarrhea the last few days,so i cant leave the house,not that i could anyway bc im worn out just walking out to the car. my eyes are burning from lack of sleep. im just fed up now. and again,the kids are driving me up the wall. not long left, not long left, not long .......
Today is just one of those 'bad' pregnancy days. I've been cramping with lower back pain for the past three days and haven't slept more than 30 minutes at a time. The BH contractions are starting to really get on my nerves and they are to the point they stop me from walking. I have no energy left and my 3 1/2 year old son wants to run all day long! Today we are stuck in the house because of thunderstorms and he so much wants to go outside and play. I think he's beginning to know something is 'up' as he has been very whiny and clingy lately. My hips are sore, my pelvic bones burn, and since the baby has dropped, I feel like I am peeing every five minutes!
Just a note on my achey (achy) hands for those who have them as well. I went to my OB this morning, and she said it sounds like carpal tunnel syndrome. Apparently during pregnancy the "carpal tunnel" fills with fluid, causing carpal tunnel syndrome, even though its usually caused by excessive motion. She said I can get the braces that they sell at drugstores as long as they have a metal insert that allows them to be adjusted so that my wrists are tilted back slightly. If I can't find those, then I'm supposed to go see a physical therapist and they'll give me some. She said they REALLY help though.
Also, Braeden finally moved! He'd been in the same position since at least 18 weeks with his head on my left side by my ribs, his butt down, and his legs in front of his face. He didnt' move head down though....now his head is on my Right side near my ribs, and he butt is on my left side near my ribs. So he's completley sideways. Such a stubborn kid!
Me too! I am so freaking tired. All I want to do is lay around. I have no motivation to do anything. My back has also been killing me. I figure I have pulled a muscle in my mid-back and it hurts to sit. Yet, I can't stand for long either. Now I have this numbing sensation at the top of my stomach. I figure it is the muscles stretching or his foot is pressing on a nerve. I am so done with being uncomfortable!
