Almost there! (venting)

had my last 2wk appt yesterday and had the Gb test yesterday as well.. He checked my cervix and it's high and closed..Im just soo exhausted at this point..I asked him if it was possible for him to give me clearance to take maternity leave on the 31st of this month because I want to be home atleast a week before the baby comes plus my baby shower is on the 1st and Im getting things ready, and he said he wont because basically I might go later and he feels it wont be fair because I wont get paid and blah blah blah...Im freaking tierd I want to rest and I feel by the 31st I should be good I will be 38wks...ughh Im sooo fustrated because I can't sleep, my feet are killing me, my siatic nerve is gettng worse..Im sorry If I sound so aggravated or annoying im just soo over being pregnant..I want my baby already...And hubby hurt his back at a new job he had started a few weeks ago and he is been in pain..he got another Job since then but he still feels bad, I was in the ER with him yesterday and I just feel soo bad for him because he was out of work for so long before all this happend and I know he feels bad about already leaving early and having to call out today on his new Job..Ughh if it's not one thing its another..Im just ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh stressed at this point!! Ok Im done!! thanks for letting me vent girls!!

I'm so sorry you are feeling miserable! These last few weeks are always the worst, they drag so bad. I'm also working (on my feet the whole time) and am now starting to swell.....Gotta love it. I can't believe your doc wouldn't give you a note to get out though. My last day is the 31st. I can't imagine working past that. Just keep reminding yourself that it's almost over and you'll be home with little baby soon! I hope your hubby feels better soon!

I'm still at work too, I have a desk job also. It's been a struggle some days getting here, but most of time, once I do, I'm ok.

I understand your vents! I'm ready, willing and able to go anytime! I have an appointment today, so I'm hoping to get an end date - I might even beg! LOL
