The whining thread

Post your complaints and whines here. It's like therapy but free.

My ultrasound got changed from 1pm to 10:50pm. Wth?? Not happy!!!

My washing machine was disconnected for three days and I now have nine loads to do! It's all sorted and I'm on number four but I'm not impressed.

My legs get sore at night from sleeping on my side.

My daughter has started having nightmares and screaming fits at precisely 3:09 am every night. Once awake I can't get back to sleep until five and she wakes up at six thirty.

That is all.

For now.

Please post, I can't be the only one needing to complain. Lurker welcome.

My husband has to travel again next week. My son isn't going down for his after lunch nap. I am almost out of gas in my truck and hate getting gas because it costs me so much to fill up. Our stupid flexible spending benefit company won't tell ME why they have put roughly $360 in reimbursements for ME on pending status--they are for chiropractic copays. I submitted the reciepts close to TWO months ago. My house is a mess and I want someone else to clean it for me and I am worried that DH won't vacuum after the baby is born and I'll have to do it the day I get home from the hospital with a fresh c-section incision (I have to vacuum every other day and swiffer on the days between due to an extremely sheddy dog.)

Between my two jobs, I work from 11AM to 10 PM Mon - Thur and I am exhausted!

My tailbone is KILLING ME

First two trimesters, I craved nothing but healthy foods with the occasional ice cream treat. Now, in third trimester, I want to eat EVERYTHING bad! I'm trying to stay good, though!

My nesting instinct is on high alert, but I'm too exhausted to get anything done!

Whew...thank you!

HEARTBURNNNN Sad I never ever get it except when pregnant. And it's starting and I can feel it ramping up uugghhh it keeps me up at night I hate it! Blah!

Nothing is done. Holy crap someone come paint and clean for me? Pretty please?

And this is just a DH vent. We've known we need to waterproof our wood deck and fence. This is not new. DH has not done it. I didn't nag all summer. Brought it up a few times casually he knew he needed to do it blah blah. OK. Now it's sept, we've had rain and cold and what do you know it's been too wet or too cold to do it. Ummm time is almost up dear. I'm annoyed he didn't do it sooner! We have had a VERY busy summer I know that but still, ugh.

My Midwife was very impressed yesterday just how low little L is hanging out. Like, I've REALLY dropped. Ergo, My front pelvic bones feel broken, my cervix feels like it has a 200 lb man sitting on it, and my inner thighs feel like they are being shredded. I also don't think this means I'll be getting a baby anytime before his due date. bleh.

Oh, and I have too much to do today.

Tamara, I hear you about the junk food.

Oh, me, me!!!!! I need to complain for a bit.

Facebook is stupid. Why do they keep changing it? It's dumb.

DS got up at 4:30 am today!!!!!! :eek: He then proceeded to roll around in our bed, prohibiting DH or I from getting any more sleep. Finally at 5 am, I got him a sippy of juice and attempted to put him back in his own bed. He started screaming and so I brought him back to our bed (DD shares a room with him). Finally around 5:30 DH took him back to his bed, and slept on the floor in there so that he wouldn't scream. At 6:30 am, he had to move DD to bed with me because DS was freaking out, tired, and grumpy. He moved DD in with me, and locked DS in his room until he fell asleep (after screaming at the top of his lungs for 10 minutes). Then he slept until 8:30 am.

Let's just throw a newborn in the mix too, shall we?????????????? :mad:

I was supposed to get bloodwork done last week at the same time as my U/S, but I forgot until this morning. Which means I had to go to my OB appt today without having done the bloodwork she asked me to do! Crap.

I second the "deck problems". We power washed and sanded our deck this summer and it was never stained. Now it's too cold to do it, and winter will be here next month. What a waste of time, now we'll have to wait until next summer and start all over.

My DS is an absolute monster lately! I can't take him anywhere without him throwing a fit and screaming. Today I had to take him to get bloodwork done with me, to Walmart to run errands, and to my OB appt. FUN. Not.

Oh my goodness....yes!

I haven't slept a wink in weeks. Literally. I was sleeping (relatively) comfortably in the recliner until recently. Now, I can't get comfy in bed or recliner due to aching back, shoulders, neck, swollen feet (I call them my FIONA FEET--from Shrek), carpal tunnel hands and horrific hearburn. Peeing is CONSTANT at night as well--is it because they are pushing on my bladder? Oh, and yes nearly constant contractions! I am on Procardia every 6 hours and it helps keep them not as bad, but they are still there and after about 4 hours it is as if I didn't have any.

Then the house. Not ready. DH is trying, but goodness gracious we do not have that much time left. He keeps saying "don't worry" but with twins and my constant contractions I need to feel more ready than we are. I am not too picky, but, um, could we set a crib up or something?!?! Aaaaahhhhhh.....

That's the highlights. I could go on, but I will restrain myself.

we have been back from vacation for DAYS and i still haven't gone grocery shopping. so we've been eating crap all week. i can't stop eating. and the heartburn is not helping. AND i just finished a bottle of tums.

our across the street neighbor was hit by a car on monday and is not doing well. he has a 1 year old son. i feel so terrible for the family and can't figure out what to do to help. i've offered a million times. i guess that's all i can do.

i just can't wrap my head around having another kid. i'm really worried that this will result in post partum depression. we have done absolutely nothing to prepare. but part of me wonders what we really need to do anyway. all the kid needs is a pack n play, diapers, swaddlers and a boob for the beginning anyway. i'm so worried about how my DS will react to this baby. he is so attached to me. will he even LET me bf?

and i don't even want to think about what this stress is going to do to my and my DH's already strained relationship!

god, i have issues...

Love the whining thread!

DH has been here for 2 weeks, then in China for 2 weeks for the last 3 months. That and the pelvic rest since June is doing wonders for our marriage. Sad

I am exhausted cause the kids keep waking up at night & acting crazy and wearing me out. Oh, and it's 95 degrees and I have no AC and I am dying from the heat!

WE HAVE NO NAME. This baby is coming in 9 or so weeks and he has no name. And we aren't even talking about it. And I think it may lead to an irrational meltdown from me it may include tears.....I kind of feel that irrational freak out building. I need to name this baby.

I have SOOOOOOOo much to do at work. They have no real plan for who is going to take care of my stuff while I'm gone. I'm going to come back 12 weeks later at the end of our fiscal year and my fantastic results are going to be shot to hell. UUGGHH I can feel it.

12 hour shifts are kicking my butt.

Braxton Hicks contractions are the devil.

My cervix feels like its been beaten up.

My hoo-ha is so sore.

I can't get in a comfortable enough position to sleep.

I am constantly dropping stuff on the floor then getting pissed because I have to pick it up.

I'm gaining weight like crazy and when you're only 5'3" there isn't too many places for it to go...except my face. UGH

I think this is great that we can let it all out!!! Good job ladies.

My hoo ha and area are so sore that I literally spend part of my day in tears.

I miss more intimate times with DH...to him I am a baby machine right now not a woman

And the appts...they all want me to rest...how am I supposed to do that when I am heading in for appts and tests all the time. Although for this one the fact that my DD is doing so well at all these appts and tests makes it worth while.

And I am still trying to get the right mix for DS in school. There are days when I just pray he will talk and help me to make these decisions.

Oh Goody, this is a threa d I can really get behind:)
I am too tired/border-line depressed to do more than lurk here.

My nocturnal asthma is getting worse but I am too tired to go to my Dr about it. The stairs at my new house make me lightheaded and breathless and my SO complains that I do not organize the toys that my DD has strewn around the house.

I have all ready gained 30 lbs and I was sure that I was more active than last time but I guess my diet and metabolism are working against me.

My friend an ex-stylist gave me really bad highlights!:eek:
My shower is next week and I see that much of my registry is n-line only and my friends are the type that do not rsvp or buy things until last minute,lol!

I have very limited creativity and energy and I am not interacting with my DD very much, she is watching Bubble Guppies right now.:rolleyes:
My belly is super hard a couple times a day for 2 hours and my DR says that means I need to rest because it could be a sign of uterine rupture. It happens after I eat so I am not sure about that...
Our new sofa will not be delivered until mid late October, I am thinking the baby will get here before then.

AH where to begin??
The kids must all 5 think it is a full mood cause they have been evil( I guess the honeymoon stage of life being like a mini sleepover is over!)
Going from a 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath apartment to a 5 bedroom 2 full bath home with family room has about killed me! Nesting instict has me cleaning non stop which is leading to my next complaint.
MY BACK. I dont care what I do my back is killing me.I cant sit cause my tailbone hurts,I cant lay cause my hip hurts, I cant stand cause I feel like this baby is falling out!
Headaches are unbareable at times. UGH!!
I cant get enough to eat.I swear I feel as if I eat most of the day.
I will stop at that for now but I can go on more and more if I need to lol

I do this, but I have a toddler who is willing to pick things up for me. He thinks its fun. But of course, when he drops something...

I feel ya on the dog shedding! My DBF has a husky and has not been the best at keeping the hair cleaned up before I moved in so now I am running the sweeper 3 times a day and still feeling like I am never getting it all.I think I am having OCD with fears of the dog hair around the baby when he comes.I had to go buy a new vaccum cleaner cause I was afraid running the old one so many times a day that is might decide to go out on me and I need to have one around lol.

OMG my six year old is getting out of control! For years I've been wanting to have him tested for autism/aspergers, but was scared of what the results might be. Bear with me, if he does have one of these, it's the lowest degree at the very bottom of the spectrum, but there are various symptoms of both that are there, and it's getting harder and harder to deal with the older he gets. Thank God he has a very sweet and loving teacher that understands kids like him... so now I have to call his pediatrician and get a referral to a specialist and have him tested... uuugghhh.

It's my Monday and I'm so sick and tired of this job I can't hardly see straight. I know it's asking a lot, but why can't DH just get a second job so that I can stay home the rest of this grueling pregnancy, and just take care of our babies from here on out and be a SAHM?? I hate being away from them, and the thought of having 4 kids and working full time terrifies me. The only nice room in our entire house is the nursery, and that's only because I just finished it and I keep the door locked so that the kids can't go in there and wreck it! It's because of us both working full time that it's a disaster, and I'm just too big and tired to clean it all up after 4 other people now!

And I'm tired of being broke!

OK... I think I'm done... for now...
