So I had my 35/36 week appointment yesterday. Everything was great...bp was 110/62 & babies Hr was 142. Thankfully she sat still this time, last month she wouldn't sit still and she almost had the poor nurse in tears (it was her first day!) We did the GBS test, i'm a bit worried about it because I was GBS+ last time and i'm trying to avoid fluids this time around.....but if it's + again i can deal with it It's only 2 small bags of fluid and I can always ask to have the line heplocked in between doses so I'm not stuck to the bed this time. He did do an internal exam because I've been having so many random contractions and he said that I'm locked up like fort knox :eek:
i brought up the carpel tunnel stuff and he pretty much said "sorry, take some tylenol and it will go away when the baby comes" So I went out last night and bought one night time wrist brace to see how it felt. I used it for part of the night last night on the wrist that hurts the worst and it does feel a bit better this morning.
And DH's sleep habits are driving me up a freaking wall!!! So Dh has to get up every morning and out the door by 6am, i understand that. That's actually 30 mintues later then he used to have to leave before we moved. I know he works hard, he's a heavy equipment mechanic (think tractors, big rigs, large equipment) so I know that he's lifting heavy things all day and it's hot out. but every day he comes home and after 20 mintues of "playing with DS" he's asleep on the couch. And heaven forbid we accidentally wake him up....but he's asleep in the living room where DS is playing...how are we not supposed to wake him up. Then he usually sleeps for an hour instead of watching DS while i cook. Then hops on his phone internet and goes out for a smoke :eek:
So my biggest problem is that after dinner he starts drinking coffee (usually around 5 or 6pm) and then when DS goes to sleep he has to go in the garage to work on paintball guns. We own our own business and a large part of it is fixing guns for customers. i understand this but hes out there for hours!!! Sometimes it's well after midnight before he comes to bed but I just figured out that he's not in the garage that whole time, he's downstairs watching TV and eating crappy food. So now I'm totally frustrated because the reason he's too tired to help with DS when he gets home is because he chooses to stay up. Hes only getting 4-5 hours of sleep before work...I would be tired too. but I don't get to be tired because i stay home with DS, I don't even get to sit down and put my feet up until after 7.
So it all came to a head last night around 1:30am and turned into a huge fight. He woke me up for the 3rd time to tell me that I was snoring and I lost it. He was up watching TV in bed and i was bothering him.....It's our freaking bed....that's where i'm supposed to snore. I screamed at him to just go to f*#%^ng sleep and I wouldn't be bothering him. Which of course turned into him telling me how much he hates me and how all I do is ***** at him anymore.....so I went to sleep in the recliner in DS's room. Well now I have totoally swollen feet because i had to sleep sitting up (the recliner is loud and i didn't want to kick out the foot part for fear of having to deal with a toddler at 2am) Granted I slept pretty damn well and the carpel tunnel didnt kick in at all :eek: but i'm so tired of this wake up early, nap, too much coffee, stay up to late routine he is on. I'm so stressed out that he's going to be no help when DD gets here. I have no idea how I am going to deal with 2 kiddos on this schedule, it almost makes me feel like a single parent with a crappy roommate
Sorry that was so long but i felt like i was going to explode! If you go this far you deserve a medal
