I am so uncomfortable

I am so sorry I complain so much here. I think I just really over did it yesterday. I drove for about 5 hours to take my son back to his dorm. Then we DTD last night which was awesome, but I woke up an hour later having really uncomfortable BH. I was up most of the night because of the BH and cramping, nausea and diarrhea. I am having a muscousy discharge, but I think it is from DTD??? I thought getting up and eating would make me feel better. So far I am still hurting. I just want to cry Sad I am so whiny today, I feel horrible. You are the only people who can relate. DH felt so bad going to work today. I truly feel like it is just false labor and overdoing it. I am going to drink a ton of water and see if it goes away.

More power to you! I couldn't even imagine DTD right now!! Sorry you're feeling so bad though. Drinking lots of water and just lying down on my side really seems to help me. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Last time we DTD I was crampy for the rest of the day and into the night. I don't think we will attempt it again until I am full term. I hope you feel better soon.

We did it the night before, too and nothing happened. None of this at least. So I am pretty sure it was not that?!?!?!

Aren't these signs of oncoming labor? Nausea, diarrhea, discharge, etc..... Oooo Joy, I know you are uncomfortable, but keep your head up!! All of this means THINGS ARE HAPPENING!! They are all good signs.

I feel like it is just from over doing it. I would love to keep him in until at least a week from today. I felt like poop for about 2 weeks before Bella was born. And I mean horrible! My son has a multicultural pot lunch at school today, I feel terrible I went to Costco and got sushi. I hope the kids will eat it. PS it was what he he wanted.

Oh joy I can relate! I was feeling bad for DH yesterday, its been a month and once the baby comes it will be another 6 weeks, so we DTD at lunch yesterday. Not again!! The pain after was horrible. The pressure down there was awful. I couldn't stand for more than a minute or two for seriously 5 hours it hurt so much. No more sex till six weeks out. The pain was awful.

Could be a combination of the activity and then DTD on top of it. I find simple things like folding a load of laundry will start my contractions. It's so annoying only being able to do one task as a time without having to stop and rest.

Water should help... and don't ever feel sorry for complaining... that's what we're all here for, and we all do it lol! I think the cramping might have been from DTD, because there's a hormone in semen that can cause contractions, as well as if you had an orgasm, which can do the same thing. I hope you're feeling better now!

Oh I can totally relate. I started feeling like crap about a week ago. The pressure and pelvic pain are killing me. And I stupidly agreed to go to a conference for this week so after a 6 hr drive on the weekend I am now sitting on uncomfortable chairs all day long. I don't know what I was thinking - very bad idea!! And I will have to work all weekend and next week will be crazy too... the thought of it makes me want to cry.

Don't feel bad about complaining - we won't get tired of it because we all feel the same Wink

Dang, can you survive that drive?! And sitting up all day? I was DYING on the ride to the hospital today for my appointment. It took over an hour in traffic and I thought it would never end. I was moaning and shifting and trying to keep from hurling from the contractions the entire time.

Driving long distances is definetly out for me.

My kids like sushi too Biggrin

Don't feel bad about comPlaining. A lot of us feel the same way and can sympathize. Besides where else can you complain and people will listen and understand?

I am not sure you would say I "survive" the drive it takes me days to recover! I have to go again on Tuesday!!!!! I kind of want to scream!

The water seemed to help tons, I did not "slow down" much yesterday. But drank enough water to drown a fish and feel better. I am still having the mucous discharge though and contractions from time to time that make be want to hurt people who are talking to me or touching me. FUN!
