Listen to me whine! *Official Whine Thread*

post #1 of 71
Thread Starter 
I'm a big baby, just indulge me.

I am so ready to not be pregnant anymore! Of course, I need this baby to keep on cooking since I'm not due till the end of Feb. But I am just so DONE. I never felt like this with DD...I was fat and happy right till I gave birth when she was 36 weeks. Right now I just feel round and tired (continually, utterly exhausted is more like it) and blah blah blah. I miss my lap. I miss my feet. I miss clothes that fit. I miss having sex in the usual positions

I want to meet my baby and put him in all the cute outfits and breastfeed again! I want to have my VBAC! And I sort of just want to get this over with....there has been so much anxiety over how DD will respond to her brother. Just ready to move on to it actually happening so I don't need to worry about it anymore.

Ok, I'm done for now. On to dishwashing and dinner making (I don't wanna!!!!) ok, now I'm really done

Feel free to add your whining! We all need a place to unload.

For some reason, I feel like this pregnancy is taking longer than it did with my 1st. Sure, it's all new and exciting when your preggers with your first and yu think 9 months, holy crap, that's a long time, but it flew by for me when I was pg with DS. Granted, he didn't appear until 40 weeks and 3 days, and I was much more miserable during that pregnancy than I am now, but yes, I cannot WAIT to meet this little guy. To get our family somewhat settled and in to a routine. To try breastfeeding again. To wear my mei tai again. To smell that baby smell again. To get my body back in order and get back in to my normal clothes.

Don't get me wrong, both of my pregnancies have been text book and I'm feeling great, but it's all about patience with me and the excitement of getting to meet a new little person that has me going crazy these days!!

I felt that way with my Son too, completely fine to keep on going with my daughter... I wonder if it has something to do with haveing a boy that makes you more uncomfortable.

But, for what it';s worth, I know what you mean! Take a your daughter on a few special dates before she is no longer the only one! Might be fun.

Let's see this pregnancy I have had or currently have...

Heart palpitations
Low blood pressure
Low iron and all that goes with that
False diagnosis of gestational diabetes
Hemorrhoids
Horrendous heartburn and acid reflux
Bladder spasms
Crotchal achiness
Sleep Apnea

SO YEP! For the first time in 4 pregnancies I am absolutely miserable and soooo very ready to be done! I feel bad about feeling bad because it is my last pregnancy and I would so like to enjoy it right up until the end, but it wasn't meant to be.
post #5 of 71
Yup, totally done. 4th pregnancy in less than 5 years and it's lost the glamor. Plus the not sleeping, the painful cankles I've developed this week, heartburn, fatigue, the stress with the landlord, oh, and the half a dozen people at church tonight going bug-eyed and saying "you are still here?!"....yeah I'm done. 2 more weeks (maybe less) since they are talking of inducing me on the 29th, but it seems like eternity...

Hugs to everyone! I totally get how you are all feeling and I think it is good for us to get it out!
Is this now a thread where we can share our whining/overwhlemedness? Cause I was just going to do that myself-

Feeling totally overwhelmed right now at the thought of - giving birth to a baby, nursing- everything that comes with having a baby and having no idea what to expect or what I am doing! Totally overwhelmed. Just had a birthing class and just got nervous about all of it. The birth, and mostly having a baby to care for- nursing, lack of sleep- everything! And also getting everything ready before then.

I'm so glad you guys didn't tell me to shut up and enjoy these precious moments! Hahaha.

Katie34, I'm going to make this our official whine thread
post #8 of 71
Yay Clicksab! An official whine thread- I love it! So I will go on!

Heartburn, shortness of breath,insomnia, exhaustion, uncomfortable to sit for too long, no energy to do anything.

It's funny- I am a few wks behind some of you and I remember some of you mentioning various discomforts and I wasn't quite there yet. Now at 34 weeks it is getting intense here in this body of mine. I totally get what some of you have been mentioning! And 6 or 7 more weeks to get even huger and for my lungs and stomach to compress even more!

LOVE IT!

I am adding to my whine!

I am so tired of getting up every hour (sometimes every 1/2 hour) to pee all night long. I don't have to pee that often during the day... it's just plain wrong!

I am so sick of the heartburn! The other night I was sleeping just fine when a wave of acid came into my mouth, my nose, my eye and my ear... it was horrid... I am living proof all those organs are connected!

I will have more before this pregnancy is over!! I so needed this thread... :-)

And do people really not know how stupid they sound when they ask the (very obviously about to pop any day now) pregnant woman "you haven't had that baby yet?"
post #12 of 71
Allowing me to complain? heh You asked for it

Im sore EVERYWHERE! My hips, back, stomach, legs, it all hurts constantly. I am mean and irritable to the ppl I love and I feel horrible for it. I told my SO today that he could compare me to a wounded wild animal...approach with extreme caution because I could strike out at any time for any reason or no reason at all. Its uncontrollable! I'm having constant contractions or so it seems but when I time them they are all over the damn place. I had a dr appt on Monday and there was no dilation and the stupid dr was trying to convince me to just do a repeat c-section and I want my VBAC soooo bad. I'm not going down without a freaking fight either! I cant sleep, and when i finally sleep I have to get up to pee, or my daughter is up for the day etc. I am so miserable and HUGE that my skin is actually ripping in places....I just want to cry and I dont even have teh energy for that!
post #13 of 71
Great thread idea!

Here's my whine - I really miss sleeping on my back! I can't get comfortable at night because one hip hurts, then I switch sides and the other hip hurts...and every time I roll over I feel like a beached whale flopping around in the bed, lol. So I'm really lethargic and tired during the day, which isn't good with all the deadlines I have in the next couple weeks.

*whine* I wanna whine, toooooo!

How come nobody ELSE is up nursing in the middle of the night?!

My term babies, I could just latch them on and go back to sleep. This preemie, I've got to wake up all the way and stay awake until she's done. Borrriiinnnnng!

Why would they expect dilation at just 35 weeks?

Here is my spoiled brat whine- forgive my overindulgent spoiled brattiness on this - dh and I just spent a bunch of money on a new mattress and box spring- felt so proud of ourselves for getting a really nice one. But we got a queen sized. Now we think we should have gotten a king since we will likely co sleep. ( I am getting a sleigh bed arms reach co sleeper but many say we will end up with baby in bed more than the co sleeper)
But we can't return the queen and can't get a king now cause we spent lots on a nice queen. So now I am worried that we won't sleep well with the baby! And sleep has already become so much more fragile than ever and will more so with the babe.
There- spoiled brat whine cause I know I am so damn lucky to even have a nice queen sized bed and a nice lovely wonderful husband to share it with and a nice wonderful baby on the way.
But I still had to whine about it!

wow- whining really works! I feel better and more at peace with this already- like 10 minutes after posting it!

Oh, good grief, I know. I remember when I was pg with DS and the last week everyone and their freakin' dog was asking "you're still here?". Nah, I already gave birth, he's at home with DH and I just decided to return back to work early - oh and my uterus hasn't gone down just yet, but still, I love you guys so much that I thought I would come back to work 11 weeks early!

Get a clue, people!!! And it was ALL older women - older than 45/50, maybe?
Now, I've got my MIL just thinking and be a know-it-all that I'm going to come early. She said the exact same thing with DS and he was 3 days late. He'll get here when the good Lord decides!!

Yes - why is it always other women, and usually women who have had kids themselves? And I got another phone call this morning from my friend - at like 730 in the morning so I let the voice mail getting it. The thing is - she texted me two days to see how I was doing, I replied fine, not much going on, baby was big and we were inducing at the end of the month if he hadn't come on his own. Doesn't she think that if I somehow had managed to have the baby in the last two days I would have called her? I'm just now full term today!
