Upset, frustrating, irritating , What is it that bothering you .

Spill it out Ladies What is it?

So i looked and search and found a diaper bag I wanted to get For Candace and it matched
her car seat. it was only on walmart.com. It was ready to pick up after 2 weeks. Go to pick
up yesterday and its not what I ordered. i'm so very upset. cause they don't have nothing in
stores that I like and now have to go driving around to find something I like that will match her
Car seat. I'm afraid to even order something online for the fact that I could get sent the Wrong thing.
So as I though I was done shopping. i still don't have a Diaper Bag.

I'm sure you have tried Babies R Us, do you have a Buy Buy Baby? We just got one here and they have an awesome in-store selection (a tad more expensive than BRU though), not sure about their on-line selection:
http://www.buybuybaby.com/default.asp
(diaper bags) http://www.buybuybaby.com/nodePage.asp?RN=7160&
Also, if you can find the fabric to the carseat (what is the design name of it, mine is Laguna Bay design), you can search for it and many WAHMs on etsy can make you a diaper bag if you send them the fabric (not sure if you want to go to that trouble):
(this is just one I found, there are more) http://www.etsy.com/listing/65622712/owl-big-bag?ref=sr_gallery_26&ga_search_query=diaper+bags&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade
My last suggestion would be to just pull one of the solid colors from the carseat fabric and buy a solid color diaper bag/bag.
Hope you find one!

ive been feeling really out of it, tired, and dizzy the last few days...even some episodes of blurry vision Sad I haven't told my doc because they kinda brush stuff off (which I'm sure bc things are almost always.fine and complaints are normal in pregnancy) so I'm just hoping it goes away soon. I feel so weak that at times when I bend over I don't have the strength to stand back up. I am having Bloodwork done with my glucose test today so I'm sure if something is wrong it'll show up.

for a diaper bag...we got this just after Isaac was born. and i LOVE it.
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dbaby-products&field-keywords=columbia+diaper+bag&x=14&y=23
i got mine in the store at BRU, but here it is on amazon its cheaper at BRU though

My fear of having an intervention into my labor. While my doc seems totally supportive....i just worry. so after discussing my birth plan with him and he said i have to have constant monitoring but the monitors will allow me to be on teh birth ball or up and moving around its just more reason to not go in too early.

My fear is that I am not going to make it to July 8th. I am having contractions - not regular or very strong yet but I did not have early contractions with DD so it makes me nervous. I also know the boys are dropping due to changes in my appearance and the extra pressure down low.

My body is my complaint. I am huge, uncomfortable, ackie, not getting good sleep, peeing every hour at night, when I get up at night my hips hurt so bad the first couple steps are almost unbearable. I am exhausted but tired of sitting. I need to get things ready for the babies, but I just don't have the energy. OK - vent over.

@Anne - pls tell your dr. about your symptoms. I know the dizziness and blurred vision are signs of pre-e. Do you check your blood pressure? Are you having headaches?? :confused: I don't want to worry about you girl, I want you feeling good. Please please tell them what's going on.

@Jennie - boy oh boy am I right with you. I think my hubby thought I was crazy this past weekend literally rolling out of the bed, holding onto the dooorknob for a second before being able to hobble to the bathroom. Just know that what you need to get ready for the twins can most likely wait until after they are here...in a few more weeks that is.

My complaint of the day - I am sooo not allowed to serve eviction notices. They won't even admit me to the hosp. Sad Yesterday was my 32 week check up with my ob. My bp was high and I was feeling sickly so I went in and got hooked up to the monitors. 3 hours later was sent home and they increased my baseline bp! Now I don't go in unless it's 150/100. My biggest complaint right now would be the swelling and rash. If that would go away it would be FAB.

Hang in there girls!

You know what I hate telling my MW things at times Cause she just look at me and think I'm complaing and I'm a Big baby, Why even ask me do i have any concerns then ?

you girls with multiples are amazing! I can only imagine with as uncomfy as I am how you are feeling with 2 or 3 in there! I saw a baby show today where the mom had triplet boys at home and was delivering twin boys on the show....my hero! Phew, hard work!

@ steph- I have had headaches but they actually haven't been bad this week. I'm already on watch for pre-e because of some episodes of high bp, but it has been good recently. I had a toenail removed Friday bc a piece of it fell of and it got infected...I bled A TON and so I'm thinking maybe it's from that? I'll call my doc if it continues, promise Smile

I agree...its like If you are going to brush me off don't ask! My perinatologist is much better and takes my concerns seriously. I see him once a month (Tuesday next week is my appt again) for monitoring of a liver condition and the 3rd trimester issues I had with my last pregnancy. He has put me on watch for pre-e and preterm labor since I have been having a lot of contractions as well (most don't hurt but I dialated early with my DD). He's an angel Smile

I am tired of people telling me how much I've dropped and when am I going to have this baby. I'm tried of feeling crappy. I'm so damn tired of not sleeping well. I have so much left to do to get ready for baby.

My MIL watches DS here at my house 2 days out of the week and she does NOTHING around the house. Not that she should clean my house but she doesn't even clean up after her and DS. Today she told me when I came home that she had a friend stop by. HELLO?? My house is a wreck. She left her friends leftover Sonic ice cream shake on the counter, she left the container of ice cream on the counter (her and DS ate the rest which is fine) with the spoon in the container. I would NEVER ask her to clean my house or od anything but it if were my mother I KNOW she would be doing stuff around my house to help out with my being pg.

I'm frsutrated that DH hasn't heard back about his big promo he's supposed to get. It's stressing DH out which is making him irritable. There is enough irritability going on in this house.

Okay. Vent over.

Thanks!

My chief complaint besides not sleeping is being so sick to my stomach. I had my 31/32 week check up and all I got was well, it's because everything is pushed up from the baby. So, be nice to me, feel bad for me, Doc. I know you see hundreds of women, but come on.

That and I have been so moody. Sometimes I want to slap my DH for not helping me more, like I have to rem on him or tell him to do this or that. Just do it. Then I feel bad later for getting upset with him. So I yell, scream and then cry. It's a vicious cycle, lol.

I hate people telling me I'm getting big. I really want to say, oh so is your face. On one instance I was so angry about a lady telling me how big I looked I just looked at her and said, "I'll pray for you." What I was thinking, "I'll pray for you to keep your damn mouth shut and you look in the mirror before judging anyone else."

Oh and I hate when people comment about what you eat or drink.

I am sorry ladies for all that ails each of us. I hope that it gets better but I have a feeling that it will only get better when they are out of us. Smile

My vent is about my mom...she and dad have been divorced for 36 years and I just started a relationship with my dad about 7 years ago. At my baby shower, thrown by MIL and Step-Mom, my mother was overheard saying that he and his family did not "deserve" to be there when the baby was born and she would not be if he and they were. WTF is wrong with her? It has been 36 years...get over it!!! Also, I am the only one who gets to decide who "deserves" to be there (and no one but me and DH will be in the room). The hospital is big...find another waiting room if you must but SUCK IT UP. This will be her only grandchild and she is still that hostile and she cannot put it away for a few hours? She also said that she would not go to my wedding if my dad walked me down the isle so he did not and that still pisses me off, it was my wedding and should have been my choice and she should have found a way to put me first instead of herself.

Vent over and thanks for reading. BTW, I hope that I am a better mom than she who raised me...

Don't understand why Grown people act like that. And why in the world would she not come to your wedding... how selfish ...he has nothing to do with her and that's the one time you would really want her support at your wedding.

My complaint(s) are waking during the night to pee every 2 hours feeling like I am about to explode only to have to sit there and wait for it to come down. It happens at work too. Tired of being told by a co-worker about how much she peed when she was pg with her son and how things went with her pg. Making a inference that mine should be going the same way. Tired of another co-worker telling me everyday that I am getting bigger by the day and that she doesn't think I am going to make it to August 1st. Tired of having to hear about the Casey Anthony case by all of the junior detectives and pro bono lawyers in my office. Having BH in the middle of the night and the fact that I think she enjoys moving around every morning at around 2 am and kicking me in the bladder and cervix(which really hurts by the way because of the cerclage). It's too darn hot. My feet are super swollen. Also I can't wait until next week so I can get the last shot of progesterone. I am tired of being stuck. Okay I'm done.

this may be a little TMI, but this is MY gripe at this moment! i am tired of no matter how much i talk, hint and suggest, i just cannot DH to lay a hand on me. i mean how hard is it to get a guy to have sex?? 3 weeks its been!! SERIOUSLY!!!!?? and he isnt the kind of guy who is afraid of it during pregnancy either, so that isnt an excuse! talk about making a girl feel unattractive (and yes, i've told him that is how i feel about 4 days ago, and STILLnothing) Sad

I think that my DH has the same complaint as you (understandably). We have only had sex about 3 times in 7+ months. I just have no desire and a really bad infection that will not go away. He hints and tries and I literally tell him "no way". Poor guy.

As to your situation...just attack him when you guys wake up (there is less fight in them). Smile I used to have to do this when he worked too much and was always too tired.

that was actually my plan for Sunday morning, but he wasnt in bed when i woke up. being on the computer is priority. atleast you have an excuse! he knows that i feel as if he finds me unattractive, i told him my feelings on sunday. he says its not the case, WELL PROVE IT!! GRRR. and i happen to know for fact that for him, sex is 10x better since i got preggo, especially the last few months of it...i go to bed early, and he wont come near it until he is too tired and ready to sleep. and he wonders why i feel insecure. arent these men supposed to make us feel beautiful during pregnancy?? isnt that in the rule book for dads to be? LOL

Men are dense. I am sorry. You are beautiful!

Is it possible he is scared? DH was in the beginning (when I was willing) and was physically unable to a few times until we discussed it together and with the MW.

Im in the same 3 week boat as you!! Im going crazy!!! I know its because he is scared to because we have had some episodes of bleeding, and had to go into OB triage. But at my last appt, the Dr said it was fine!! I refuse to go another 5 weeks (til her due date), and then another 6 weeks after she is born!! Its not fair!!! And youre right...it makes me feel soooo unattractive!! And as for your other post...there IS a book!! Its call "How to be a pregnant father". My mom got it for my SO, and it really does have some good tips on how not to be an A** while we are preggo lol.
I swear if it doesnt happen in the next week, there will be handcuffs involved hahahaha Wink

Hope it gets better for you too!!!

Well I tell ya what… I blame my doc for the lack of love in my bedroom. After Tuesdays doctor visit with the unexpected cervical check, my hubby won’t touch me. He said when the doc put her finger in to check and said she felt the head and so and so dilated/effaced, he said he would be grossed out even thinking about it. I was going to avoid it anyway to prolong baby baking, but STILL! Its nice to say No, that way you feel wanted right? He’s got another thing coming though if he even suggests something else without my “happiness”. Like Laura said.. "who needs a man!" Smile

You girls make me smile. I feel so bad for my DH and it is funny to hear it from the other side. I even said last night that it could be another 15 weeks until we can and he seemed unconcerned but seriously...15 more weeks...I am not sure I can put up with that.

Each of us is beautiful and we are doing the most amazing thing...we are growing a person. Do not let them think you are not beautiful, you are!!

i have NO medical reason at all for not DTD! that is what is so frustrating! i am insecure anyways, so the lack of lovin is taking its toll i am proud to say that after 10 years we still got it, im afraid its going though Sad as to the "who needs a man" comment, they make items to help us go without em. Wink i could get the book, but he would NEVER read it.

I'm opposite of you gals. DH tries to start stuff with me and I'm just never in the mood or too uncomfortable. I'm also not up much of the night peeing. It's really bad during the day though. I sit at a desk all day and as soon as I stand up, I have to go. But it's not so bad at night.

ugh I hear you! My DH came home from work and hugs me and gives me a kiss and said I just want to take you in the bedroom and says he missed me so much. (I was gone a day). This after I complained how terrible I felt for driving for 3 hours. don't get me wrong sometimes I'm up for it, but not all the time. I would love it when I say my back hurts or itches if you would take care of it. Then we can talk about DTD. Not only that, but it's not like it's that easy to do now and I feel gross and ugly.

I'm with you on all of this girls! Men are so crazy. My friend was telling me not long ago that her husband finds her more attractive when she's pregnant- he loves the boobs and the belly. I was shocked because I just assumed all men hated the pregnancy thing as much as my DH did. I seriously just want to cry I am so frustrated some times. I've quit even asking because I know he'll have an excuse...he's told me that my belly is a huge turn off for him. Thanks, Dear. As if I need someone else to remind how unattractive I am right now. Lately I've been telling him how some studies show that women who have sex in the last several weeks of pregnancy are more likely to go before or on their EDD than those who don't (which is true). So he's acted a little more interested, but I doubt I'll get it more than once a week.
Since this is a vent thread, I have to say I am completely sick of people commenting on how swollen my ankles are and how bad my varicose veins look. I don't need someone to tell me that I am water balloon. I already know that. And, no, I don't get to put my feet up very often. I have two young kids and many animals to take care of on top of working part-time as an RN. And sitting around makes it WORSE, not better.
Ok, I feel better now. I sometimes just wish I could hide in the house for the next 5 weeks.

I got a horrible sunburn over the weekend and on Tuesday night DH was trying to get me to mess around. Are you kidding???? Not only am I in pain from this baby but my arms and shoulder and chest are killing me and you want to have sex? :eek: I gave in and said we could try but it just wasn't working out. I told him I could take care of him and...sorry, TMI....but he kept wanting to do things to me. I was definitely NOT prepared for anything in that area. Completely dry and swollen. And then he comments on how I'm not turned on. HELLO????

I've quit even asking because I know he'll have an excuse...he's told me that my belly is a huge turn off for him. Thanks, Dear. As if I need someone else to remind how unattractive I am right now. Lately I've been telling him how some studies show that women who have sex in the last several weeks of pregnancy are more likely to go before or on their EDD than those who don't (which is true). So he's acted a little more interested, but I doubt I'll get it more than once a week.
Since this is a vent thread, I have to say I am completely sick of people commenting on how swollen my ankles are and how bad my varicose veins look. I don't need someone to tell me that I am water balloon. I already know that. And, no, I don't get to put my feet up very often. I have two young kids and many animals to take care of on top of working part-time as an RN. And sitting around makes it WORSE, not better.
Ok, I feel better now. I sometimes just wish I could hide in the house for the next 5 weeks.

I don't understand men like that either. DH doesn't get more turned on by me being pg but it doesn't turn him off either. It did when I was pg with ds but not this pg.

People tell me all the time that I'm not going to make it to August either. The one person who always does is my mother. But I expect that from her really, it just irritates me.

Wow ladies! :bighug: to all of you!!! I'm right there with you all on most issues lol...

Re: Peeing all night - my secret is that I pee a TON the hour or 2 before bed and then I get away with going 3 or 4 hours before I need to pee again. lol... some days it works better than others.

Re: sex - i'm interested but not getting any either. many reasons for that, stress of the move, etc, but its been a couple weeks. Frustrating!!!

Re: comments - Im sick of the "when are you due?/ you'll never make it" comments too. ugh!!!

My vent now is family related too - 3 days of staying with my folks was enough. Love them dearly and they were a huge help taking care of DS while we moved and helping with things, but I'm soooo glad to be out of their house and away from them... lol. As My DH says "What do fish and houseguests have in common? They stink after 3 days!" lol
