Whining thread

I am so grateful to be having a baby, things could be a lot worse, blah blah blah, but seriously, you guys, I feel like crap. I am SO uncomfortable. I don't remember feeling like this so soon with DS. I couldn't sleep last night because I couldn't find a comfortable position, my back is killing me, I feel so exhausted and a little dizzy, my heart keeps racing (normal, pregnancy tachycardia, but still annoying), I keep having BH contractions and my ligaments are super crampy today. I really want to do stuff around the house and take DS outside to play, but I feel too crappy.

Not every day is like this, but the last 3 days have been pretty bad. Just hoping I start feeling better again. Wah wah wah.

I know there are things I could do (chiro, massage, yoga) to try and feel better but mostly I just wanted to whine. Anyone else feeling like complaining?

Yes! My back hurts so bad and my doctor won't let me go see a chiropractor or my acupuncturist because I'm high risk. I mentioned it again yesterday to her and she just smiled and said it was a nerve and nothing she could do about it. Ugh! It's seriously killing me!!

Plus I've now been in bed for 6 weeks and am seriously going CrAzY!!!

I had the stomach flu last week, dealt with a headache for 5 days afterwards and then felt good for one day only to get a cold with a low grade fever. I just want to be able to breathe and feel somewhat normal. I am also sleeping worse and worse. I seriously think it's easier to sleep with a newborn because at least when we are sleeping we can sleep well instead of being uncomfortable. My knee kills when I wake up and I can't figure out how to get pillows propped up to stop it. Okay, grumble session over. Feel better ladies!

Owww, a stomach flu while pregnant has to be just awful. I feel so bad for you. Glad you are feeling better!!

UGH Yes I need to whine too!!! My allergies went haywire and I've been sick for 2 weeks now. It turned into a sinus infection & bronchitis. Plus I've had to travel the last 2 weekends to NY to my inlaws house and life has been crazy. I've finally been able to just lay on the couch for the last 2 days and I'm exhausted!!!! But now I need to get off the couch and clean my crazy house for Easter #2 this weekend with my side of the family that somehow I thought would be a good idea to host! What was I thinking when I volunteered for this!?!?!?! :bonkself:

OMG me too, having a horrible time sleeping. i have a body pillow on one side and another pillow on the other side for when I turn over and my back still hurts and my hips, its especially bad when I lay on my left side, which is the side we are suppose to be on, ugh.

THen, I have had acid reflux practically all day and night for the last few weeks, at first I thought it was particular foods I was eating, but then it was and is with everything and when I get hungry is the worst...it makes me cough and nearly want to puke.

Oh and recently I have had an itchy belly and I really don't want to get stretchmarks (at least not this early) and put cocoa butter on every morning and it is still itchy throughout the day. Do any remedies work for any pregnancy symptoms, I'm thinking they are all a bunch of consumer driven 'buy me and i'll work' schemes.

Let's see what else...lack of sex drive, feel huge, lack of energy and will to exercise, always want to eat everything, restless legs all day and I am sure there is more to come my way because I am only at week 25, but hopefully new aches will replace and not add to the old ones.

I feel a little better Smile
