Urgh, I get you there! I'm not officially on bed rest but have huge difficulty doing much of anything nowadays. Even though I know I have to go at least another 6 weeks I can't imagine her getting any bigger than she is now and me still being able to move!
With stress between xmas coming up, registering our new car, the baby stuff... DH and I are NOT getting a long.. and the house being dirty is stressful stressful stressful for me and I can't clean it and I depend on him for it.. but he's busy with work (it's been a long work week).... I just wanna cry and cry and cry. I tried to talk to him and yesterday and today he's just kinda been a ****. :/
((((hug)))) Sorry things are sucky. It's not going to be this stressful forever. I know how hard it is to relinquish the control, but you need to because the additional stress is not worth it. It's only going to make the pre-term labor worse.... Accept that DH has to do it and will do it when he can.
Is anyone else super touchy and emotional and snippy lately?? I totally bit a shop-girl's head off today at the grocery store today and then I just wanted to burst into tears for being mean.
I definitely have been snippy the last two days. Dogs, DH, and DS are on my last nerve. Guys at work and all their complaining, which I usually just ignore, I have been speaking out about getting them to just SHUT UP or go to a different room to complain. Ah!
Good News - squishy girl is head down for the moment. But during my NST (I get twice a week u/s and NSTs) they kept me on for an extra 20 minutes. Something about her heartbeat not going up and down as much as normal. Then my blood pressure was slightly elevated. Ugh. Made me late for my GD appointment, so then I just went home and slept instead of going back to work. Frustrating day.
So my new dr's office called today and they tried to schedule my Csec but the first available date at the hospital wasn't until Jan 3rd!!!! ARGH!! I can't wait that long, even if I don't go 'early' like I'm supposed to!! I'm so stinkin' frustrated and upset because all of this is coming about because of the insurance change. With the previous insurance we didn't have to schedule ahead of time like this. Otherwise it would have already been done a month ago on the old insurance. You can bet that I'm going to be doing everything in my power to induce labor early!!
ARGH ARGH ARGH!!!
Ive been getting frustrated and angry very quick lately and staying that way. Specially at work. Its not a good thing at all. Yesterday was a horrible day and so glad this week is over. Went shopping with my friend tonight that is doing my baby shower on Sunday and got things for prizes and what not. Then out to dinner and finally home. My son decided since I was on the phone with my dad about tomorrow morning that he would try n run around outside. Not a good thing. They are all finally asleep over a hour and a half after their bedtime. Tomorrow morning we are going to see the movie Free Birds for free. A lady that works with my company(shes a realator) rented out a whole theater and she does donuts and juice and popcorn and what not. All for free. Before hand they will show the video they shot with alot of the businesses she works with like they did last year. Not sure what song they did this year. My mom is getting my oldest brother, his wife and their 4 kids plus me and my 4 kids tickets to the polar express for December 7. Im guessing its going to be part of everyones christmas gift or will be the whole gift. My kids will love it. Me it will be interesting with the 3 older ones and a newborn.
On a bad note. Im retaining water really bad tonight my socks totally left indents and when I pushed in on my leg it stayed for a little bit. Not a good thing. Hopefully it goes away.
So we are all extra emotional!? That's fantastic!!! I'm not the only one. I thought maybe depression was hitting but it seems to be a trend with all of us!
Sorry that everyone is feeling that way though. Definitely not very fun. Hope we can get hormones under control. Not too much longer to go.
Jana- sorry to hear about the hospital schedule. Hopefully they can get ya in sooner :/
Kati- make sure you talk to the dr if you keep retaining so much! Be safe
DH and I had a good talk about our feelings lately and such last night and he came and just snuggled me. It was really really nice. I wish we could have had sex but since I'm not Allowed we didn't. Lol sorry tmi.
We got DS yesterday. DH works a 1/2 day today and off site so I'll have Ds by myself. It might be intense. :/ ds was extremely whiny all last night so I'm hoping he was just tired but I down it. He often comes back crying anytime he wants something from his dads house. He even cried when I told him he's gonna have to help keep the house clean. Turd. I wish I could make eggs in a basket for breakfast and do my mommy routine. wish me luck this week. Hopefully I find someone to take him to school most days :/
Oh Maddie! It must be so very difficult to not be able to attend to his needs. It's bad enough that I can't attend to my FurBaby and DH's every day needs properly, I can't imagine not being able to make things better for my little boy.
Kati: that movie day-out sounds like so much fun! What is the Polar Express?
Jana: that is seriously the worst news ever! I hope they sort it out.
ARGH!! I am so over being pregnant! but at the same time I'm not I still like feeling her move around in my belly (when it doesn't hurt like a beast). I just can't imagine another 4-6 weeks of being this uncomfortable and knowing that she is going to grow even more!!! I'm not sleeping well; I can't sit comfortably or get up off the sofa easily; I can't walk for more than 10 min without the contractions coming on; I also can't socialise with friends and talk and laugh without contractions starting; and to top it all off I have been feeling like I'm getting a cold for about a week now. Help!
