How hard this would be near the end. Seriously. When you're a FTM every tells you how hard it is when you're *really* pregnant, but I guess I was kind of naive about it. I am a mess. Physically, this is just plain hard. I mean, I knew it wouldn't be easy working full time up until my due date, but this is ridiculous. By the end of the day, I can barely walk...I feel so heavy, my ankles are swollen, my back hurts, etc. And don't get me started on my emotions. I have pretty much one way of dealing with stuff these days, I cry. When I am happy, sad, or mad. I don't know how DH puts up with me.
I had my 37 week appt on Monday and I think my OB could see how miserable I was, because she told me not to go back to work after Thanksgiving next week (my school district gets the whole week off for Thanksgiving). So I have two more days of work, and those can't go by soon enough. I nearly lost it today at school when my kids were being crazy today and tattling on each other constantly.
I feel kinda guilty because I feel like all I do is complain lately, and there are women who try for years to have babies and can't, and would give anything to be in my shoes. But it's so hard. I don't know how some of you are having your 3rd or 4th babies, lol. At this point, I can't see myself going through this again.
People keep telling me that after the baby comes I will completely forget how miserable I was....is this true? I guess I just need some encouragement.
