Ready to be done

Any one else? :confused:

I just am NOT feeling happy anymore. My back is hurting constantly (and I know it's NOT labor). I'm exhausted. I've lost interest in food. I can't DTD, there's either NO libido, or DH is sick, or our bed is too squeaky and we have a house guest for Lord knows how long... The weather is crappy so I have no desire to go outside. I can't sleep because of my back, and even when I do manage to get comfortable enough to sleep, then the two year old has a crappy night and I'm up dealing with him..... I could go on, but then I'd sound like I'm complaining or something Wink

Come on 3rd Trimester........

I think you need some vitamin D!!! Wink This Oregon weather pretty much requires it. Blum 3

We had a nice day up here on Tuesday! It was sunny and almost 70. Apparently it didn't make it down to you.

You should attempt a chiropractor for your back. I did this time, and went in on my first appointment and said "all I know is that I don't want to feel the same way I did last pregnancy!".... and I have felt at least 5 times better.

I definitely have my moments, but I'm not eager for it to be done anytime soon. Unless I can get Chris to change his mind this will be our last baby so I want to savor every minute...plus with one preemie I'm hoping to go as long as I can. Although, I'm only 22 weeks right now, so I might be singing a different tune in a month. Hang in there Janelle, I know you've had a rough time this pg.

Thanks ladies.

I have to wait until we get our new insurance before I can see a chiropractor other than the one that I have been seeing. The last two times I've seen my regular chiro, I've ended up in bed with pre-term sypmtoms. As much as I want to be done, I'm not THAT stupid when it comes to pre-term symptoms. Lol

I stretched and my back popped, then baby started pushing away from my ribs (:ouch:) and making my stomach churn (:puke:) and now my hips and pelvis are aching bad (and I'm cramping a little). Perhaps it's not the chiro's fault after all. Def gonna bring this up with the doc on Tuesday.

I'm having a grumpy day today.

My 3 year old is pushing back against me lately, and I do not have the patience for it.

Today alone, we had arguments about whether she needed to wear a jacket outside, where the carseat buckles need to be, whether she needs to go potty when she is squirming around, etc etc. Normally I am super laid back and patient, and each back-and-forth just irritated me like crazy.

I have little mantras I have to repeat to myself..
This, too, shall pass.
I'm going to miss this.
Cherish each moment!

Did I convince myself yet? Ok, repeat again. Wink

I have my moments Wink This is definitely, without a doubt, our last baby so I do want to try and enjoy it but I'm just not. I guess the only reason I'm not ready to be done is because we need to finish getting things ready for the little guy...after that is done I'm sure I'll be right there with you.

I get really impatient with all the aches and pains of pregnancy as well, and I get really frustrated with the physical limitations. Bottom line: being pregnant is hard work! Complain all you want if it helps you feel better for a bit ;-). I hope you get some nice weather soon so you can spend some time outside! The weather is really nice here, but we have the 13 year cicadas swarming the area, so we're all pretty much hiding inside! Gross!

I started getting BH contrax last week and yesterday I cleaned a ton before the ILs arrived late last night and my stomach was contracting the whole time. I HATE BH contrax. I'm ready for LO to be here too... I don't have much to do to get ready, just need to sort through cds and newborn clothing. But, I know its way too early to be safe if baby came now. I have no libido either atm... poor DH. I'm just thankful we have reached viability! I remember feeling this way with my last one for a week or two and then things got easier again. Hoping that happens this time around.

I don't know why, but your response made me cry (it touched me).

I know I'm not the only one who's miserable at the moment and it's not that everyone else's responses weren't helpful or supportive... but I'm crying now. :cry:

I too am thankful to make it to viability stages, though I have a RLF that had her baby at 26 weeks and it was a HARD road. Her daughter is just perfect now (2). A little on the small side, but happy and healthy and.....

If I can make it through this week, then I can have hope for the next week..... just take it one week at a time.

I've been feeling that way lately...I feel quite large...this is my 3rd and you'd think I'd remember by now how I normally feel during this time but I don't remember. lol. I feel further along than I am. Not to mention I've had way too much stress lately, which makes me a basket case and extra tired. I am excited to get to week 30. then I can really look forward to start counting down lol. 24 weeks feels far, but in reality i still have 4 more months. its like ahhh! Lol

I am with you on this. I'm completely uncomfortable and huge already. I had to go buy new shirts today and nothing fits right. Either too tight or too big. I'm up 3-4 times a night to pee. Not to mention that I have been eating Tums at night. I have BH all the time. My hips and pelvic bones hurt. BLAH! This is my last pregnancy!! I don't want to deliver to early but I hope the next 3 months goes by fast! I can't take this much longer!

I hope you get to feeling better. Maybe we should start a complaint thread. LOL!

I am not ready to be done yet, maybe b/c this is our last, but I really could do with a few of the symptoms being gone. I had a pretty good first trimester but early second was met with lots of stress (dh got a promotion, but with that came a move, NT scan wasn't ideal, etc) and I started feeling pretty sick. I am hoping it is getting better now so I can enjoy the last half of the pregnancy

I hear you, I am totally there too. I DO NOT enjoy pregnancy at all. It's a means to an end, in my opinion, and this is my last time. This time around I can't enjoy it at all because I'm always worried that something is going to happen - with my previa the midwife said I have to be careful how much activity I do and I have to be prepared to go to the emergency room immediately if I have any more bleeding, so that kinda screws our plans to do any travelling this summer Sad
I also can't work out, so my back is really starting to hurt - normally I'm quite active. I'm also on pelvic rest, so we haven't DTD at all since I got pregnant, and just to top it all off, my insomnia is HORRIBLE. I wake up in the middle of the night so often and I just lay there for hours.
It's pretty miserable. I'd have the baby today if I could, but logistically we're just not ready yet. I can't wait for September to come.
Sorry I'm a downer today.

Yes... I'm trying to take it one week at a time also and hoping I start feeling a bit better to enjoy it more. I mostly enjoyed being preggo my last two times. This time, I'm not really digging it. I just want baby to be here already. There is simply nothing more to do to prepare for her arrival really (I have the bedding, I have the clothes, I have the diapers, I have the carseat, I have the stroller, I have it all)... but, to sit and wait 3 more months. God will get me through... and on the other end I know I will look back and think "Wow, that went fast." Wink Anyways... that's my prayer.
