ARG!

i did not have a good day yesterday!

my day at work was decent, no complaints, with the exception of driving to run an errand in this heat. i was gone 10 minutes and i came back feeling like i was gonna be sick thanks to the heat. luckily i only had an hour to go, so i chugged alot of water and made it through the rest of the day.

After that things got a bit hormonal.

at 4:45 i started MAJORLY craving a peanut butter and fluff sandwich (weird, i know). i got home to find out we had no fluff. i got a bit irritated as i crave very few things AND DD has a bad habit of eating stuff and not letting us know when we are ot of stuff (ie: Peanut butter, fluff, cereal, etc etc). at the same time i noticed that DD did not do a certain task that she was instructed to do (she told me it was done, but when i looked it was only partially done). So that made me more annoyed. i felt the hormonal breakd down coming on so i just yelled at myself and went to my room to try to calm down. DH went to the store to grab a few things, including fluff LOL so he came back and i had me my sandwich, still feeling quite miserable and hormonal. THEN we get the call from the idiot who we have been waiting on to schedule the installation of the carpet in the nursery. well after telling us that it would only be a week or so after we paid for the carpet, (we paid this past weekend so i was expecting to be done by this weekend) he tells us that he cant do it before the 18th :eek: needless to say, this did not sit well with me. i was highly pised off, finished my sandwiches and wentoff to clean my extremely dirty house, thanks to the remodeling of the nursery LOL so i sat down and cried while cleaning off the desk cause the thouht of waiting ANOTHER 2 weeks to get the nursery together was just, overwhelming. i have baby stuff everywhere and its driving me crazy ! dh pitched in and we did a quickie cleaning to the kitchen and LR. took a shower and laid in bed feeling angry, miserable and hormonal still. DH came in and laid with me for a bit and allof a sudden i starting crying my eyes out saying that he doesnt find me attractive anymore and that im worried that he gonna find someone else who is prettier and more attractive than i am. Poor DH, in my defense though, it is nice once in a while to tell you PREGNANT wife that she is beautiful when she cries about her belly and stretch marks. hormones are great!! Crazy

when it rains it pours i guess. oh the sily things that get us upset during pregnancy. thanks for reading if you managed to make it this far.

anyone else having a particularly hormonal day/week?

i'm so sorry that you had such a rough day. I'd be pissed too at the carpet guy especially if i'd paid in full. large bummer.
DH's need to remember to remind us that we are pretty.
But to be honest i find the immediate after baby harder than while pregnant....at least there's a reason for the large belly. but afterwards it just hangs and your boobs hurt and your whoo hoo hurts and you're feeling frustrated and exhausted and overly hormonal.
LOL.... sorry not trying to take over your thread. Hugs and i hope today is better!

YIkes, that is not good service with the carpet people. :angry1:VERY understandable that your upset about that. I would complain enough to have another room installed for free at this point. Your DD sounds like a lovely little lady, I wouldn't be to hard on her, Im just remembering when I would do the same stuff to my parentals. Wink I hope you enjoyed your Fluff sandwiches night! I've been wanting skillets with peppers and sausage.

I know how you feel, everything seems so urgent when you have a baby coming and men do not understand that! DH can't understand why i want to go get DS and DSS's school supplies and school shoes this weekend and when I try to explain to him that with the way I'm feeling, I'm not sure when this baby will be coming and that I don't want to be school supply shopping with a nursing newborn (they start back school the 17th of august), he still doesn't get it. Ugh! So frustrating.

LOL trust me, im worried abuot the "after baby" body too!

Jessica, DD is wonderful, im not normally that hard on her and i now feel bad. an apology will be given this evening.

As for the free room, we had free installation, so at this point we deal with it. i understand that ppl have schedule and they cant all coddle to ME, but damn, i sure wish they would ROFL

Awwww :bighug: Yep I've had a few emotional/hormonal days/nights lately too. Part of its stress too, but most of it is hormones. Poor DH gets the brunt of it, and then I end up crying (again) and apologizing to him after lol. Just a few more weeks... and then I'll be hormonal and frustrated and everything else that comes with having a newborn. lol. Smile

I hope you had a better day so far today. Give DD a big hug, treat both you and her to something (ice cream? candy? movie night?) and enjoy some time together.

OMG! Yes, I'm right there with you on the hormonal week. So we're sort of in the process of buying land to build on. Long story short - we submitted and offer, the guy said he'd hold the note, we need to sell our house to get the money needed for the down payment to get financed through a bank. So, that was way overwhelming since we didn't know what was going to happen and we were dealing with the seller and our realtor (neither of which weren't listening to us - not that it matters, the seller countered with more than we were willing to put down so the deals off anyway). So, then I had the contractions on Saturday and my mom got me a little worried about over-doing it on the yard work. So, I called to tell her that I called the doc bc I googled some stuff and she got kinda snippy and told me that I don't have everything I read online (which I've seriously NEVER done). I've never worried about having something I read online. So, that turned into an argument with my mom because that turned into us talking about how she thinks I stress too much (referencing the land purchase - this time, its been about other things in the past) which then turned into me getting angry that she constantly says how I stress too much! So, I sat outside my work for about a half hour at least, crying on the phone with my mother, then crying on the phone with my hubs. So - I absolutely know where you're coming from!

my mom hates it that i google so much too! when i started having this pelvic pain i was talking to her about it and she *****ed cause i am working myself up for nothing. um, i would rather be aware of the what if's than get blind sided. and NOW here i am, having days like yesterday where i can barely walk! HELLO!! my doctor said it normal, but that convo is on a different thread. as for stressing too much, um, YEAH!! your pregnant and trying tofigure out how to get a new home while selling the old is stressful! we bought property 5 years ago, but we had family to stay with in the mean time. ok, staying with family was horrible, but we did what we had to do.

as for DH, we stayed up til almost midnight fighting. he is wonderful and supportive, and puts up with my hormones. i get that he needs to vent sometimes and blow off steam, but holy cow buddy, do you need to scream til you bust a blood vessel? which gets me screaming and then he wonders why im screaming :eek: which THEN makes my BP rise up and well, yo uget the picture. we both kinda gave up as we knew it was not good for me or baby to be that upset. guess he shold have thought of that at 6PM!! whatever, its friday and my plan for this weekend is NOTHING! no nursery work, no plans, NOTHING. the couch is gonna have my body print in it by the end of the weekend. the only i am going to think about is what im making for dinner. oh and did i mention the 25 navy recruiters who is going to be holding a training at my building today?? they asked if we had a field to play football in. i am a married woman with a baby on the way, this is true, but i am NOT dead. it will be hard to resist the urge to work outside today LOL

Ugh!! Tell me about it! I get that there are things out on the internet that we don't have, but I'm with you! I'd much rather know what it COULD be, then ask and be told its not, than to not know and possibly have a problem! When I was in L&D on Saturday, the nurse was saying that some women have their pelvic bone actually SEPARATE completely. She said its super painful! And we'd do the same as you did...move in with my parents while the house was built. Not sure how crazy that'd make me, but I'd have to deal Smile Not that it matters at this point anyway - we declined the guys counter offer.

Good for you!! You take it easy and don't do anything! It'll be nice to enjoy some time to relax before the baby comes anyway. I feel like we're always prepping for the baby to come so we don't ever have time to relax, and then the baby comes and we don't have time to relax! The whole last trimester I feel like is full of things to do and buy and plan. Sometimes I wish I was the hubs...you still get to be super excited, you still get to feel the baby, BUT, you don't have the exhaustion, the uncomfortableness, the sleepless nights, etc. Smile

let me put to it to ya this way, when w moved in with SIL it ended badly, to put it nicely. we then moved in with his dad, which lead to brian starting up smoking 8 years after he quit! but i guess it all depends on who theparent is LOL

hubbie and i went shopping for most of what we still need. got the monitors, the baby bather for the sink, breast pump (just a Playtex one, but it should do the job. we need the stroller and the changing pad, both will be bought @ BRU. they sell the changing pad, crib sheets, changing pad cover etc in a kit of sorts. after that we need to figure out what kind of bottles we will use. we even went and bought a new plush blanket for m e to take to the hospital with me, which will then be used in the nursery. it feels good to be almost done! now my back hurts LOL so i think i will take a nap. im sorry about the house Sad
