So I finally went back to work yesterday for teacher meetings before the school year starts. I was exhausted yesterday after work and then in the evening I could feel my my bottom baby making moves to get out of a crouched position by my cervix -- (s)he must be getting too big! My belly is suddenly larger again and the top baby feels higher up. Today about halfway into my hour and a quarter commute to work the top baby did some sort of punching bag action to my stomach and I projectile vomited ALLLL over my car and dribbled all down my clothes. I cleaned up as best I could with baby wipes that I happened to have in the car and I smelled of vomit all day. It was so gross!!!
You poor thing How long are you planning on working for? I'll be honest, its hard. I planned to work till 35 but went off this week (mainly because of the itching). And I don't know how you can drive so long by yourself, I'd be falling asleep half way there! You're a strong women.
Oh, that sucks! I am sorry! That is a long commute. I am pretty sure it is one you won't want to make much longer. I started leave at 32 weeks, but I worked from home starting at 28 weeks. It was more because of swine flu (H1N1) than my commute, but my doc told me that he probably would not let me drive that far much past 32 weeks. I was so exhausted that I am not sure I could have done much past that anyway. My commute is only 40 minutes, but there were times that I had to pee halfway home. It was rough. Don't push it with work and the commute. Healthy babies are more important than your income. It creates anxiety, I know. Best of luck to you!
yuck! I'm sorry hon!
