    Default Scared of not making it....

    I keep looking at the calendar and I feel like there's no way I will make it to January.

    Every movement feels like a struggle these days. I'm out of breath constantly and just now starting to get sore in my joints. I tried to do some cleaning yesterday and I barely got my bedroom clean and one bathroom (plus made dinner for our house of craziness). I ended up watching 4 episodes of "Orange is the new Black" on Netflix all afternoon instead (I had yesterday off).

    My commute is a struggle, as is my shift work. Having to take transit with several stairways and long walks is making me not want to get out of bed in the morning.... This week I'm working 7-3 which means getting up by 4:15AM. It's frigging cold in the mornings too which I already have problems with, and I can't even wear my big super insanely warm arctic coat! Next week I'm on 4PM-12AM. I get to work from home, but as you know my house is crazy right now so the prospect of working from home is depressing because it means I have to be around all those people all week long! And I already have problems staying awake past 8PM!

    And getting out of bed, that's a whole other story! We have a king and most nights I get cocooned into the middle with DH on one side and the dog on the other. I feel like I need a pull bar from the ceiling just to sit up and crawl out from between them! Not fun when I have to pee multiple times a night!

    I keep telling myself - just need to make it 7 more weeks of work, then I can relax. At bare minimum I need to make it to December 23, because I need to be an active employee on that date (not on sick or mat leave) to receive my bonus and I NEED that to pay for baby things!!

    Hey! I have not been on for a LONG time, but I remember following your struggle when I was going through mine!! I'm so excited that you're pregnant!!! I hope all goes smoothly - the last 10 weeks are the WORST. T&P!

    It's rough, but hate to say it will get a lil more tough! I contract constantly and feel like the baby did a swan dive deep down in my pelvis and am now having lots of pressure and nerve pain. I work 12+ hour shifts and it is tough. You can do it though! If this was my first preg, I would have been delivered today :0 Hang in

    DH tries to help but I don't think he fully gets how uncomfortable I am. Last night the dog was misbehaving and I asked DH to take care of it but he didn't want to (then again, it is my dog and he does listen to me better and pretty much ignores DH). It was annoying having to get up and down off the couch several times to discipline the dog. Once our house guests leave though, I plan to use the bath tub again (right now it creeps me out people using my tub so I am going to thoroughly disinfect it after everyone leaves and then have a nice bubble bath!)

    OMG! Welcome back! Haven't seen you around in forever! Are you back on the TTC wagon! Yeah, the last bit is really trying my patience already!

    12 hour shifts suck. I used to do that and hated it. Shifts of any kind suck. I would love a regular Mon-Fri 9-5 job! What sucks is when I come back from mat leave my job will likely have moved to a 24 hour rotation.

    Right now it's the baby back on bladder that I hate. I pee when I wake up, pee before I leave for work, and when I get off the train I waddle all the way to work where I have to pee again because baby is stuck there on my bladder. Ug... so far no contractions, BH or otherwise that I can tell. Just the odd side cramp (like if I ate food and then exercised too quick after). Once I slow down it eventually goes away...

    Ugh, feeling your pain! Hopefully is DH is understanding enough to let you lie on the couch all day if you need to, or to pick up slack.

    I work the 12 hour shifts too, and while I normally am not scheduled this way, this week I did three in a row. Yeah, I think I'm done with that many back to back! I was completely wiped out and definitely not on my A-game by day three!

    End of pregnancy is just not comfortable! The end is in sight though.. And I think we have an advantage since we all have holidays coming up. I think that will make it go a little quicker!
