Feeling poopy

I slept the whole day yesterday. I had not strength. I contracted all night. It woke me up. I called the Dr. this am. She said that I need to rest and drink more water. Call her if it gets worse or persists. Sad I am bored, and tired and so are my kids. Pray this "rest" makes it better so I can busy the kids later.

Ugh, sorry to hear it. Doing absolutely nothing is definitely slowing down the contractions for me. If I were you I'd count on other people or even the TV to keep the kiddos entertained for the time being; contractions really suck.

I am still new to Dec. I'm a straddler.

I can't believe you are both already having contractions. Oy vey.

Hope you are feeling better soon. I know what you mean about feeling frustrated about not being able to do stuff with your kids. I had all kinds of fun stuff planned for the summer, but then I started having problems with the pregnancy and now we're lucky if we make it to the park a couple of times a week. But just remember that after we have our babies we can get back to being active again.

Glad you are feeling better? How long do you have to keep it low key before you can try to increase your activity level again?

Man, I really feel awful again. I am not having contrax but my stomach hurts and all my muscles hurt. I feel like I just need to lay in bed all day.

That sucks! I don't get contractions but I have been getting the muscle aches from day 1, getting worse in the last few weeks. It got better when I started taking more iron. Have your levels got checked? Do you think you caught a cold or flu?

I hope you feel better soon Joy!! I hate seeing you not feeling well. We are supposed to be able to enjoy pregnancy not have 9 months of yuckiness! Maybe talk to the doctor about it and see if they can give you any answers. Hopefully you don't have some sort of infection going on.
