I try not too whine too much about whatever pregnancy issues I'm having, but it's a day for it - so here's a thread that anyone can add their current whining about.
My kiddo was having a rough couple of days, and Saturday night woke up at 12:45am screaming and crying, we pulled him in our bed for the first time in 3ish months. We all slept awful.
I felt like CRAP yesterday. Dizzy, exhausted, lightheaded, etc. Barely got ANYTHING done that I needed to do.
Last night, I couldn't get to sleep, then kiddo woke up crying and put himself back to sleep within a minute, so I wasn't concerned... but then he woke up at 6:30am (usually sleeps til 9ish), screaming and crying so so hard - it was obvious something was wrong. My husband went to check his diaper to see if that was the issue, it wasn't. I wound up pulling him in bed with me and fed him, gave him teething liquid, snuggled him and it took him over an hour to go to sleep, but he finally did and we went back to sleep til 9.
I've thrown up three times today... and hadn't in at least a couple of months. I can barely function, and I'm so exhausted. I'm having issues getting anything done... thankfully the little guy takes a good long nap, so I'm off the hook for awhile. But we have a pot luck to go to tonight and I have a little cooking to do for it.
I don't know what's wrong with me! I feel like I do in the first trimester, not this late on in the game.
Anyway, there's my whine for the day. Feel free to share yours.
I'm sorry you're feeling so yucky! I still throw up occasionally as well... so frustrating when you think you're done with that nonsense!
I've been feeling really dizzy/lightheaded and my eyes start clouding over like I'm going to pass out. It's something I've dealt with my whole life due to low blood pressure, but it's been WAY worse than usual lately. I don't think it's been this bad since my early teens. Yuck. I have ZERO energy can't get everything done that needs to be done! DD has been getting up between 3 and 4am every day (when she usually sleeps from 7 to 7) and I just want to REST!!! She's been really disobedient today and I'm out of patience. There, that's my whine .
Oh how I needed a thread like this today I know I don't post here much...I'm lucky to get 5 minutes to screw around on the computer anymore!
These past few days have just sucked. I'm having a bunch of trouble with insomnia and anxiety these past few weeks...I've had this with my other pregnancies, I guess I was just hoping to avoid it this time. But I guess not! So, I'm tired, cranky, and have NO patience for anything. So, of course my girls have been off the hook...screaming, crying, fighting over EVERYTHING. I feel awful, but I'm so thankful for bed time each night. My youngest has been an absolute whinny mess the past few weeks. She's cutting her eye teeth so I don't know if that is it, or what the heck is going on. I broke down and took her to the ped last week because she's usually fairly easy going...starting at about 4:30 the wheels fall off and she is a crying screaming clingy mess. She's still napping the same and she goes down by 7:30 every night. Maybe it's just a phase...I just hope it passes soon Last night I was doing laundry because DH was complaining that the house was a mess...as he sat on his butt...and I realized that I washed the last set of ultrasound pictures and they were completely ruined. I can't believe I did that...I don't think I can get copies of them. Makes me so sad that I ruined pics of my baby I'm actually feeling well pregnancy wise. I'm anxious to get my ultrasound this Wed to see if the placenta has moved...a month ago I still had a complete previa. I'm thinking nothing has changed because everything still "feels" the same...not sure if that makes sence. I am feeling this baby REALLY low which kind of scares me. I never felt my girls this low they were always kicking high...I feel most of my movement down in my pelvic region.
I am just tired of feeling like a grouchy mess. I love my kids, but I really hate being preggo. Hope everyone had a good week!
Ok. I'm going to whine and I too usually hate whining about this or that but ugh!!
The pelvic pain that I mentioned I had a little bit of, is now full blown like how it was with Hailey . I now can no longer roll around freely or comfortably in bed or walk normally most of the time. My back is also getting sorer and I hate it. Contractions are still coming daily, some slight, some fairly strong - strong as in, they feel like a real contraction . I have my dr's appt in a few hours so I'll be mentioning all this to her. I have a feeling I'll be told to sit back and relax while she tells my hubby and boys to pick up the slack around here - something else I also don't want. All of this is setting me up to make a decision like I did last time and I DON"T want to go that route again. I told hubby no matter what pain/discomfort I'm in NOT to let me say ok go ahead. It'll be hard for him to do that because he hates seeing me like that at the end, but he also didn't like how things were AFTER I got home from having Hailey, either.
Oh another not so prgnancy related note, MIL is driving me fu***ng batty. I wasn't gonna say anything else about her, but UGH. She did call last Sunday as we thought she would and as hubby said he'd do he DIDN"T answer, and we went out, just as he told her we would be. She then called 3 times while we were out, and left a snotty message saying "I guess you're out. BYE" . She called when we got home and he answered and she bugged about THIS weekend. What is he doing, will we be home blah blah. So he asked me what we're doing I said well, it's a weather permitting type of weekend. Tomorrow is Canada Day so we'll be doing some Canada Day things starting around 5, it'll be too hot in the morning/afternoon to go to what we want and Hailey dont do well in the heat. Saturday, the Mine at the end of my road is doing a free tour thing and whatnot, so since we missed it last year, I want to take the kids there, this year. So she said she'd call this week .
Last night, she calls. Just before 7pm. Are we going to be home Saturday, he said I dunno, the Mine has something going on that we want to take the kids to and it's from 11-4. So then she got mad I guess, and asked him what time he gets off work today. He said well, whenever I'm done, but I have a Dr's appt to go to right after I get home and shower (my prenatal). She then had to be nosey about what time THAT was. So she asked if she could come TONIGHT after supper so he said "well, I guess so". THEN, he said you know, if you would have come 3 weeks ago like I told you to, you would have had it all back by now (she needs her income tax done, shoulda been done MONTHS ago). She snapped well you told me you weren't going to be home, he said NO, I sat around all weekend waiting for you to call to come in and you never did. I TOLD you to call and we'd do it then. So then she does her whole "Well it HAS to be done, I NEED it" bs story. So he said fine, come tomorrow (now today) and we'll get it done. Oh boy he was NOT happy when he hung up. He said she can come tonight, get it done and leave us alone for the weekend since we have things we want to try to do as a family.
THEN, get this. Not 5 mins after he hangs up, she calls back, making him even MORE annoyed. She asked him "are you home now?" Well duh, you're talking to him on our LANDLINE helloooooo! He said uh, yeah. She had the nerve to say, well I can come now and we can do it now. He said no, I don't think so, we'll do it tomorrow. Sh!t, it's 7pm it's a half hour drive from her place to mine, so she'd be here at 730ish, then however long it would take him to do it, since she has this paper, and that one, and NOTHING is in order etc, so we'll say at least 9pm when he's done and she leaves. Yep, there goes my night with hubby. Even he said when he hung up, it's MY time to relax. I worked all day this is my time to relax with you (me) I don't wanna be hounded by her. And we KNOW she's going to do nothing but be loud and b!itch about everything. Hopefully he can do it as quick as possible and get her out of here. I hate seeming to be so mean but ugh, even he's getting annoyed by her.
Why do inlaws have to be like that for, and why do people wait till they actually NEED something done because they need it for something else? Sigh.
wow, i dont know how you deal with a MIL like that! i would go insane!! My IL's are divorced now for 40 years. my FIL judges everything we do or decide, why do we do XYZ or why are we doing ABC. but he only comes around when he needs something so its not TOO bad, but i wanna just look at him and tell him to stop being to GD judgemental and have a little faith in OUR decisions. there is no "family" time where he is concerned. we know that when the phone rings, he wants to put us to work. luckily, since the few months he has eased up on us, know im pregnant and we have had SO much to do to prepare for her arrival. my MIL doesnt bother at all. until brian's brother passed away a year and a half ago, we hadnt spoken a word to her in 6 years and we LOVED it that way! now we talk to her occasionally. back in march when i told her about my gender scan and the reveal party, she yelled at me cause 1) i didnt invite her to my u/s and my mom is going (um, yeah, that is MY mom) and 2) cause i refused to tell her the gender until the party. and THEN during the party, in fron of my entire family and friends she hollered again and told me that i was NOT allowed to name my baby Kendra MARIE cause she hates themiddle name Marie (thats her sisters name). i very nicely reminded her that its MY middle name and my moms middle and therefore will be my daughters middle name too. that was on april 1st. now, let me just add that this woman has her favorites where grandchildren are concerned and our kids have NEVER been any sort of priority. 11 years i've been here and she has NEVER bothered with us unless she needed something. it has already been decided that she will make the effort with this one, otherwise there will be no relationship there. there is only a certain amount of effort WE can make, KWIM??
I dunno how I deal with ANYONE like that, nevermind a family member lol. Sorry you get so much flack about her middle name being Marie. When we named Hailey, to me the only middle name that sounded good with it was Marie - also MY middle name. I also felt it only fitting to have one of my daughters share apart of my name, since my 2nd born's middle name is Alexander, same as hubbys. Once I told my aunt what I named her, she said "Oh, you kept the Marie going" it's a family name... it's Hailey's, mine, my aunts, my mother's is Maria but close enough, my grandmother's and it goes on. I hadn't really thought of that when naming her, but it's kinda nice to have the name carry on, kwim? Especially since my grandmother is no longer with us, it was one of those things that made you feel.... erm, I can't think of the name, but for lack of better words, good.
That's alot too why we keep the name to ourselves till baby is born, we just don't want to listen to "Oh, I know/knew someone with that name, what a real prick he/she was" or "what kinda name is that"... you get the idea. If I had to go through with that, especially with someone who I didn't like and get along with, I wouldn't hesitate to tell them exactly where to go. It's YOUR baby, and if they don't like the name, then they know where the door is and they do NOT need to associate with you, hubby or the baby.
Also I hear ya on the whole, people only talk/call/come around when they want or need something. For most everyone we know, family included, that's how it is. Hubby made friends with an older guy he used to work with and he treats us better than hubbys family does AND we all talk/visit on 'just because' basis. He has helped us out so much in tight times, more so with our van and we're so very greatful. If it weren't for him, who knows when or how our van would have ever gotten fixed, because as Murpheys Law would have it, things like that ALWAYS happens when you don't have the cash, don't have near enough of it, or simply don't have the right tools for the job and can't just go buy your own, so you borrow. Family has helped too, but they would never help in the ways he and his wife has helped us, and if they did if it involved money, they'd be on the phone hounding us as to when they were getting paid back. Our friend is a "whenever you can pay back, do it. Don't put yourself short just to pay us back" kinda person.
Oh well. MIL came and went on Thursday, though she apparently STILL has some other year of taxes to do... WTF. She said when she found her T4's she'll be back for him to do it then... uhh, thanks for the warning, but if it's not a necessairy thing, you're NOT coming back to hound me for hours on end because you're stupid. Starting next month we'll be getting the crib set up and other things going on, plus we want to paint our bedroom and the living room, I have NO time for annoyances like that!
