Crabby and Cranky: leave your whining here - Page 3

post #41 of 54
I'm itchy - sweet mother of pearl how I itch

I'm tired of GD food- I want CARBS - cake, pie, ice-cream, pasta. I really want stuffed shells with really good red sauce

I'm tired of testing my blood sugar 4x a day

my hips feel like they are unscrewing

I'm only 37 weeks tomorrow but I WANT TO MEET MY BABY!!!

why did I not find out the sex??? I wanna know NOW!

and yet nothing is organized! I don't have my HB supplies ready and I still have school - lots of school

How can I simultaneously want the baby to come now? and wait another 5 weeks....

I am crabby! BabyGirl is *still* ROP with a totally undescended head. Not just not engaged but floating! I'm sure it's because of her position. I am trying to do everything I can to help her get her head flexed but all the good positions are uncomfortable, hard to sustain and make it impossible to do anything else like read, sew etc etc. Most of them also involve being on the floor which is hard to get on and off and my feet go to sleep in about 2 seconds.

And the Spinning Babies website is annoying me too. In my current mood it seems vague, inconsistent and hard to navigate. Just what I need.

Grrrr. Sorry for the whine.

My babe just flops from ROP to LOP & back. And I have the same feelings about spinningbabies.com. Nothing seems to work. I feel helpless and hopeless.

arg! I'm so frustrated
DH has started up the I can't have sex with you because I'm not in a hurry for baby crud WEEKS back...this last week I don't want a baby but yes I want to DTD...finally he's in the mood this morning and I wasn't but well I thought well shoot I better go for it...and well it wasn't much because of course he's afraid it'll start labor..and he basically laid there...how fun . Who cares buddy I'm losing my mind in frustration...I haven't had my drive in 7 months and it turned on 3 weeks ago and he won't touch me with a 10ft pole...I'm nearing 39 weeks and won't get to have sex for WEEKS....Ugh Men.

Not at you...but I can so relate. Except for us it's rather fast these days when we do finally have all the stars aligned. He doesn't want to smoosh baby, but he knows I'm in the mood and also like the "labor encouraging effects" of sex so he consents. And then about two minutes later(when he's done and I'm just getting in the groove) he complains that we don't do it enough and he can't last so long anymore. Now there's some frustration for ya!

Let me say this since sex is the subject. Don't lay on your back. I was sick of other positions and thought-gee what's a minute or two on my back? I literally started to get tunnel vision and black out! I rolled over to my side and told DH what was going on and that pretty much sealed the deal that night.

I can't wait for normal sex.

I am right with you, mamas. How is my LO moving this much? She's just floating wherever she pleases. I feel hiccups in my hips, under my ribs, etc. She's so tricky!

Bubblette--If I eat chips or a tortilla w/cheese and beans, it doesn't mess w/my bG at all. Mexican food, thank goddess! However, I still dream of huffing down Girl Scout thin mint cookies.

Okay I've totally posted enough to this thread...but I just let off some anger at my mom in an email. She keeps flopping between being great and being in massive fear over our home birth. She just sent me a bunch of pictures along with a "horror" story about a lady she works with that had a ten pound baby...mind you mine come out 9.3oz ish...and even in her horror story it was a vaginal birth. She ended her letter with concern over the "12 pound baby you're carrying"

After how she acted on Mother's Day on top of it...I had it. It's like she's on a mission to piss off everyone in my family or hurt people's feelings. I told her that I'm just not up for all the negative energy and fear and calming other people's feelings for MY birth...where I need to be supported...I basically said I hope she can find her trust and faith before this little one decides on a birth date.

The last month is just whacky. It seems that when I'm in a good space, other people around me aren't and when they finally get a grip, I lose it!

DS seems to be coming down with a cold too! I'd like to leave the cranky crabby thread now...where's the Zen? You know, I think I see it in the quesadilla mentioned above...mmmm

I need to resurrect this thread....

Last night I was up between 1:30-6:00 am for no reason. I was just AWAKE. So I got a total of about 4 hours of sleep. Went to school, functioned (kinda). By the time I got home I was exhausted, dehydrated, and having regular some painful some not painful bh. Oh and found out my midwife has fallen ill....

So I drank a bunch of water, and took a nap, could only sleep for about an hour. I felt better. We had dinner, all was well. I took a hot bath and drank some tea. I go to get in bed and now I'm nauseous...... my intestines are writhing around and my stomach is turning flips. I've got chills... I feel like crud. It's past midnight. I need SLEEP....

I've got 4 more days of classes, and I've got 6 finals to study for. I could keep plugging along if only I could get some sleep.

I'm afraid of going into labor.... how can I possibly do it if I haven't slept?

My daughter found the cat had barfed down the stairs. And he must have walked in it because I found traces of it downstairs in the living room. Why does he only do this when my husband is at work?

It was so nice and cool over the weekend but now it's back to that muggy, getting hot way. So over trying to wear clothes.

I got on to stalk down this thread and it was already bumped. :-)

Wanna talk irrational crazy and bitter today? I think I would administer my own pit drip this very second if there was one accessible without me moving from my recliner. That I just sat down in after fighting my 2yo for TWO HOURS to go down for a nap. And my MIL to 2 hours off her demanding job to come spend quality time with her, and now she will be sleeping through it. It also means that my normal 2 hrs of nap or house stuff is gone because now I have to shower and get ready to leave before MIL arrives. But still have to clean enough that she isn't appalled.

I truly don't have life things to complain about, but I am not a person that enjoys being pregnant and on a discomfort scale of 1-10, I never exceeded a 5 with my first two. This one is like a freaking 9 every day that this point. My hips feel dislocated. My lower back is shot. Pubic bone is splitting in two. And when I got DH to DTD last night, whatever motion I was engaging in was causing this gawd awful repetative cracking/grinding sound in my hips and tail bone area and now he is afraid that DTD will paralyze me. Who the hell knows, maybe he is right.

I am considering pulling a Forest Gump and just heading out walking and not stopping until she comes out.

So if you see a very pregnant woman, with a scowl, waddling through your area, feel free to join me.

I am so, so very grumpy today. I'm not sure where the impatience came from. I'm hoping that it's gone again tomorrow. But for today, I just want this kid OUT OUT OUT.

I want to meet my child and to know that this one will actually make it. I want to finally be a mom. I want to figure out what's next. I also want to be able to lie on my back and roll over without pain. I'm sick of cleaning, sick of nesting, sick of reading the internets, sick of time to myself, even. I want to be overcommitted and pooped on and to know that all of this has actually been for something.

My due date isn't even until this weekend, so I don't have any good excuse to be this impatient. I just am.

Hi ladies,

Glad there is a place to whine. I have been up and down, having a great day and then a down-and-out day. This morning I did 15 mins of work and feel completely wasted. No real labor symptoms. I'm due on Mon and I'm also crabby b/c I know, based on last wk's appt, that they will start talking about induction. I even have a MW and I am feeling really stressed about this. They aren't pressuring me to do anything now, but they will if it goes too long. Then one of my friends started asking innocent questions about it and I just took it too personally. I just feel like my feelings or wishes are being invalidated. Why make going over 40 wks something so awful? Argh.
