Ya know guys, people keep reminding me its easier to be pregnant than to have a new baby, but I beg to differ. Perhaps I'm lucky, my babies latched on without a peep and I never minded getting up to nurse. They got up less to feed than I do now to pee or roll over. If they got fussy Id nestle them in the sling, it just wasn't hard for me. Not at first anyway, I had challenges, dont get me wrong, but the NB period was always so blissful! This pregnancy on the other hand? Enough to make me want to not have a fourth...sad enough to say cause we were going to. I don't think my body could handle it, the kidney stones, SPD and everything else. Sometimes I become concerned that because I had easy pregnancies, birth and NB's with DS and DD...so does this mean hard pregnancy, hard birth, hard baby this time? I certainly hope not, but in my darker hours it's crossed my mind. Thankfully I am feeling more like myself this week. More energy, no major SPD and the wild urge to clean and nest. Although Ive got about everything done so I just clean and reclean and wait.
And that's why I aaaalmost didn't post my last post, because I knew someone would beg to differ. That's why I added "at least for me" at the end. Believe me, I feel bad for all you mamas with SPD and other painful conditions, and I totally get why you are done being pg even though you are not to your due date yet.
I am 41 weeks today and pelvic pain (but not nearly as bad as actual SPD) is only just now starting to catch up with me.
