You guys, I try not to complain too much. I don't feel like I get to complain too much about a pregnancy that I wanted so so so much. But I am having a serious "I am OVER this pregnancy kind of day." I'm sooooo uncomfortable. My back hurts, my entire groin/pelvis area is super sore and achey, I can't walk right (but I have to, because I have to walk to help manage my gestational diabetes) and OH don't even get me started on having gestational diabetes! I just realized that I got diagnosed at 24 weeks, so I have basically been doing THAT whole thing for like 3 months now, and I was trying to watch it even before then because I knew it was likely that I was going to have it. I don't even care about the testing, even though that involves drawing blood. If testing was all I had to do to make it better, I would test 5 or 6 times a day and that would be fine with me. I'm just sooooo tired of having to be so vigilant about what I eat. Like really? I really can't just go and have some freaking french fries or some cake or a brownie or something? Some garlic bread? Lasagna?!? No?!? And then always with the walking. I walk like 50 or 60 minutes a day, I have to or else my blood sugars go too high. You guys, I am a freaking whale. WHALES DON'T WALK. But I walk, every single god forsaken day, I walk, so I can keep NOT eating french fries. Even though my spine is seriously going to snap under the enormous weight that is anchored to the front of my body, and my hips are all wonky, and everything "down there" feels like it's going to fall out, I keep walking. That girl is a walking fool! AND, I can't put on my socks like a normal person anymore. It involves sitting on the bed, putting on one sock, and then, like, getting completely up and turning my whole body to shift my weight to the other leg so I can put on my socks. It's March, in CO. I need socks.
Okay, I feel better now. Sometimes it just helps to get stuff off your chest. I can do this for 4 more weeks. I can do this. I can, can't I? Yes, I can. *Calming breaths*
If anyone feels your pain, mama, I do. But like you said.. You CAN and WILL do this!! It's.. PFT!.. 4 more weeks TOPS!!!!!!!!! Child's play.. You're strong.. you're determined.. but you're human. And that makes it all a challenge.. but you and I both know it's all worth it in the end.
You. Got. This!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm so sorry girl that you have been feeling miserable. I can definitely feel you on some of those pregnancy pains. But just think, not much longer and then your little bundle of joy will be here I really hope everything gets better. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
Many hugs coming your way. Wanted pregnancy or not, you have the right to complain about anything you want. I tell my hubby all the time, even though i've wanted this pregnancy for the last 3 years at least, it doesn't make it any less painful or frustrating at times and he just needs to accept it. LOL
I feel you on the socks....oh and shoes...I don't know how many times i've just sat down and told DH...you do it-and he does it too. Hahaha!
Yes of course you can vent, vent away! I'm sorry you are so achey these days and can't eat what you want. I have pain, but at least I can eat what I want (well in moderation). Loved the sock comment. I told DH that he's going to have to start helping me with the socks and shoes. My shoe came untied at the park the other day and I swore off shoes with laces for the rest of the pregnancy. I wish it would just get warm and stay warm so I can wear flats and flops.
Anyway, hope tomorrow is a better day. Can't you just sneak a little lasagna? I won't tell.
This board is for venting so go for it!
I can't imagine having to keep up with exercise and eating right so much. Do you really have to walk that much per day? I would probably die, really.
But you are SO close mama! I'm sure he will be here really soon!
I can usually get away with wearing boots (the looser ones I can slip my feet into), clogs, or tennis shoes that I don't have to tie/untie. I hate high maintenance shoes already so I don't really wear them if I can't get them on quickly.
Thanks ladies! I feel much better today. I'm still uncomfortable, but not like I was yesterday. In retrospect, I probably completely tired myself out this past weekend, making my body hurt more and also making me grumpier/more emotional than usual. I was NOT in a good place yesterday. LOL I am feeling much more able to cope with any discomfort and the challenges of managing my GD after taking it easy last night and getting a good night's sleep. Sorry to go all "I can't do this any more!!!" on you. LOL Thank you for letting me vent and not calling me out on acting like a big baby. LOL
I'm feeling much more cheerful and ready to get back to enjoying these last weeks of what is probably my last pregnancy.
