Anyone else finding it hard to cope with the pain and discomfort? I just cried and cried yesterday, because I'm tired of it. I feel like a big baby because this pg is much less painful than my pg with ds1 (with ds1 it was constant pain, with this one it comes and goes), but it still hurts, and I'm just so so so done.
I'm tired of being in pain almost every time I get up to walk somewhere, I'm tired of having to wake up at 4am because my knees hurt and the only way to make them feel better is to walk around my house for 10 minutes, I'm tired of the ITCHING freakin' everywhere- my whole vulva itches, my belly itches, I have an itchy hemorrhoid. Even my ear piercings itch- I've had them for well over 10 years, and haven't had a problem with them for years and years.
When I stand up, it feels like the baby is stabbing me over and over in my cervix. It hurts- I can barely get from my couch to my kitchen without leaning over in pain. I really hope this sensation doesn't continue or get worse in labor
The one and only benefit I can think of is that I am soooooo not afraid of labor pain anymore. I don't care how bad it hurts, at least I'll know the whole thing will be done and over with soon!
There will be NO MORE babies coming from this body! (of course, that's what I said after ds1, and this baby had his own ideas, so...)
