32 Week Checkup

Everything went good. Up 1lb so total of 14lbs gained. This diabetes diet can get old but it works! I talked to my doc about the fact that I've been having uncomfortable contractions lately. Nothing too regular but more than BH. I don't remember having anything at all painful with the others. She said she wasn't surprised since this is #6 and that as long as I'm not having more than 4 an hour, not to worry. She said to drink lots of water and rest if they start up. She's on vacation in 2 weeks so I'll go back in 3 and then start weekly appts. I had a mini meltdown with DH this am. I have always loved being pregnant and don't want to complain b/c I feel so blessed to have this baby but I'm just so tired of feeling tired. There's so much I want to get done but my body just won't cooperate. I got up and got dressed, did some laundry and cleaned up the kitchen and I was exhausted. All I wanted to do was lay on the couch. I don't want to rush this pregnancy since it's my last but sometimes I just want to fast forward the next few weeks.

I am tired, so I can't imagine how tired you are.... you can complain just as much as anybody here if not more...this is your number 6!
I hope the next weeks go by quickly for you!! (((hugs)))

I know what you mean! My husband took the older kids to his parents for this week so I have been using it as a final push! I put the nursery together, did some other projects, packed my hospital bag, and preregistered at the hospital. Hopefully that will free me to relax through these last few weeks!

I am right there with you. I know this is more than likely my last, and I am trying to enjoy it as much as I can. I just am also ready to have my body back, and to be comfortable. Hang in there mama, you are getting closer Smile

Glad to hear the GD diet is going well for you and that your Dr isn't concerned about the painful contractions. I agree, I am exhausted and this is #2. I think its understandable for #6!

I am there as well. The closer time get's the more tired I am. I have to break each task down with a 20 min break in between just to get up the energy to keep going.

I can't believe you are already at 32 weeks! Not much longer... Glad your appt went well. WTG on the weight gain! I hear you on being exhausted. We have been reorganizing and trying to get ready. We started cleaning out our master closet and bought a closet organization system. Our closet is stacked all over our bedroom and I just can't make myself go in there to work on it. I know I have to have it done before baby gets here because she'll be in our room. We only have 10 more weeks, but I (like you) just want to lie on the couch!

Way to go on the weight - that is awesome! I have started to pack it on (always this way for me in the 3rd trimester, no matter what I do!)

I can only imagine how tired you must be feeling with #6. I'm tired being pregnant with #3! Also having a lot of contractions here, and they keep telling me not to worry unless they stay regular. I get them often for a time, then they slow down and I don't feel so many, and then they start up again. Seems to be that my body just wants me to rest, rest, rest. I know what you're saying about not wanting to wish it to be over, but being uncomfortable and so tired that you're looking forward to the end. I'm realizing that I need to pack my bag just in case, and start getting those things done around the house that I have been thinking of for months now! It will be here before we know it - WOW!
