Miserable.... Rant

This weekend has been awful!!! Friday night we were at my mils coloring Easter eggs and by the time we got home I was so swollen and tired since I was up for 2 hrs thurs night for no reason. I took some Tylenol pm because my doc told me to for pain and to sleep and woke up thinking it would be good. Nope I was a wreck yesterday. So tired and sore and I can feel the swelling. The pain is unbelievable. All in my pubic area but at this point just dealing but not dealing well. Relaxed all day yesterday and worked on the sideshow with my feet up in recliner. Slept horrible again last night and today the same. Did a little more today but so worried and nervous I am not making it 12 more days. With my daughter I was out of work from this point on because we had our spring vacation before even though I am having them on the same day gestational wise. I hate feeling like this and poor DH is doing everything. My house is a mess and I just keep thinking it can all wait the couple weeks until baby is here and after when I can do stuff.

Sorry for the rant. I just need it off my chest and no one really understands. My friends with kids don't get it because none had pain like this and my closest friends actually don't have kids.

Sounds miserable! I hope you can get some good quality sleep soon.

I think at this stage we just need to take one day at a time. I get so overwhelmed thinking about how many more days, how will I get it all done, etc. In the big scheme of things if your house is a little messy or things aren't perfect- then so what.

Vent away! It makes me feel better that I am not alone! Smile

Sorry you had a rough weekend. Stinks when you look forward to a relaxing weekend and it ends up exhausting you more. I hope your pelvic pain goes away, call your doc if you are worried. And try the chiro, I swear its doing wonders for me.

Thanks ladies... Wide awake at 330 am right now. Grrrrr

Doc is not worried at all and the chiro worked earlier but with so I'll time left I didn't want to bother. When it got bad again basketball was during times I could get an appt and now with 11 days I figure I will deal somehow

Man, that sucks! All I can say is rest rest rest and drink liquids. I had a couple really rough days but it was just from a really busy week. Maybe just resting for a few days will help.

well I am feeling a bit better today... still sore and more so on one side of the pelvic region than the other but I can totally feel that she is lower today. Made it one more day of work which is great and I can totally feel the swollenness getting worse as the day goes on but I will be done by 3 so in an hour and can go home and relax... dinner is in the crock pot so that won't be bad tonight and hopefully the little one will be in a good mood and cooperate with relaxing Smile

Yes, this sounds JUST like me! My pelvic region hurts, especially when I stand up/walk around. If I walk around enough, it seems to lessen, but then my back hurts. I also think "Okay, got one more day of work accomplished today". I don't know when I'm going out, so every day is an unknown if I'll go/finish ...lol. And, we had pizza for dinner. LOL I hurt so bad today, the last thing I wanted to do was come home and cook dinner. DH was fine with it.
On a plus note, when he got home - we were ..snuggling? I guess and I put his hand on my belly and she was dancing around in there. I think he's felt her MAYBE 3 times the entire pregnancy, so it was nice for him to feel her REALLY moving. He was like...wow! Smile
