How soon (if ever) did you feel "icky"? - Page 2

post #21 of 58
Thread Starter 

Oooooh, mamas.  A huge hug to you all.

 

Wish we could all just relax these last few weeks.  My kids are definitely suffering right now, too.  I am not in the mood for anything-- not work (I work from home, at night), the kids, the holidays, cleaning, cooking . . .nope.  Just want to do nothing!

 

I don't remember BH actually hurting before.  In past pregnancies they were uncomfortable but I could move around and they'd go away.  Lately I have found I am tightening myself up, and when I remember to relax, that helps, too . . .but tonight neither is working.

 

Can't wait to see pics of your beautiful babies . . .won't be long now!!!

my 2.5 y/o ds is driving me insane, i broke down crying at playgroup today when a mom told me that she could see the stress in my face, i'm 38 weeks hoping to have this baby soon....

Love this thread and I'm feeling more dependent than ever on this DDC. LOTS of pressure from baby's head today. I need two more weeks, then feel free to escape, boy! ;)

 

I am better with my kids if I just stop telling them NO all the time. Let them make a mess, let them have two cookies instead of one. Let them get up earlier in the morning. Saying yes is so much more pleasant..... for right this minute, LOL!

I don't post often, but glad I found this thread.  I am 36.5 weeks with #3 and after 2 straight weeks of insomnia I am just feeling well, "icky", big, tired, reflux, shortness of breath and crabby.  My legs ache, why?  Anyone know.  They are only a tiny bit swollen if at all.  Also, I spent an hour crying last night because I was so impatient with my little boys yesterday.  Everything was "No, don't, clean this up".  I am glad to know I am not the only one struggling with the toddlers/older children at this point in the pregnancy.

 

Thanks mama's for sharing.

This is so me. I just can't stand the mess. I need everything perfect all of the time. I feel like I spend all of my energy on maintenance so no headway gets done on actual projects. I'm SO tired of just treading water. I want everyone to pick up after themselves so the place stays nice and I can concentrate on other things.

Anyone else have an insane compulsion to vacuum? I wrote it out on the calendar to vacuum every 3 days.

Wow I'm glad I'm not alone in the daily crying, being mean to dh and impatient with ds crowd.  I'm yelling at dh all the time about everything and I feel awful that ds is listening to that.  Also feeling very icky. I'm super tender where baby's butt is sticking out like a huge lump and apparently he has no room to move because he has been stuck in the same place for a week making me miserable.

My house is a wreck.  bag.gif  I am not a neat freak by anyone's standards, but it's enough to stress me out.  The video circulating of the two boys playing in flour:  that type of event is regular around here.  My first & second graders are on break from school this week, and while they understand our rules perfectly. they have been breaking them every time I'm busy doing something.  I've given up on trying to do things because it isn't worth the disaster that will be waiting for me when I finish the task.  ... and the melt-down I will likely have once I see what they've done. 

I yelled at my husband the other night for not responding to me when he was half-asleep.guilty.gif  I probably got so worked up because he was sleepy.  He fell asleep in the 7PM hour on the couch... there is so much to do and I really need him to have the energy that I don't have.greensad.gif

 

Today, even though I have no idea when DP might be paid next (he's self-employed and his customer happens to be in the hospital with post-surgery complications), I am going to replace my favorite meditation cd.  I need to bring in peaceful energy...

This is my second pregnancy (almost 5 years apart) and by no means has it been easy, but it has been WWWAAYYYY easier than my first, so don't listen to anything you hear. Your second may be easier, the same or harder. It will be completely different though. Although this being our second one we still have decided that this will be last.

It is nice to hear that others are having a hard time controlling their emotions. My poor daughter has been so patient with me the whole pregnancy and yesterday I just went off on her for no reason, she is only 4. I made her cry and after doing it I felt so horrible and said to myself I cannot wait until this is over so I can feel normal again. Apparently, according to my mom, I get really mean towards the end of pregnancy. I hope this is all over soon.

I've also been more irritable/easily-stressed-out lately. And weepy. Ugh. I'm glad I don't have any kids already...just an extremely patient husband! Lol

It's amazing how these last few weeks feel like months!

 

Amanda, I hear you on saying "yes" more.  This works for me, too, in general! 

 

I had to clean the house yesterday (we had people over) and I felt SO much better this morning, knowing everything was still pretty clean.  I wish I could not care what the house looked like .. .I've tried, but I have far more peace when things are in order.  They are never, ever perfect, but I just don't want disaster!

I'm the same way. People roll their eyes and do the whole "oh don't worry about it, you're going to be a mom, you have to get used to it", but I honestly do feel better and more relaxed after I've taken the time to clean up.

^^^ +100000000000  

 

Plus I have 3 shedding animals in a teeny tiny house.  Cleaning is just a part of my daily morning routine.

YES! I need everything perfect, too. My 8 year old is my little slave. She's such a good one, though, ;) never complains about the things I ask her to pick up, is generally cheerful and likes things where they belong as much as I do. My 6 year old helps, too, I make them follow the 2 year old around the house all day long. Squatting to grab stuff off of the floor is NOT working for me right now. I will do dishes and vacuum tonight, then watch netflix for an hour to recover. ;)

 

I also ran several errands today and cleaned out one last closet. It felt great to drop two bags of junk off at the Goodwill.

I told my sister that I think I'll have this baby next week. He is SO stinkin' low and the Braxton Hicks are very, very regular...

 

I want all things in their places and I am dreading coming home from the hospital to a disaster. I will probably leave a list with the 8 year old and tell her to ask daddy to help with it before he picks me up. ;)

 

Love this thread!

I just slept most of the day. Ok, no, just for a few hours, because I've been lying awake for 4 or so hours in the night, not wanting to get up and do things and make noise so DH can't sleep. But I feel like crap because I didn't do anything but eat and sleep all day, the floors are desperate for sleeping, the bed is unmade, and the kitchen is a total wreck. Yet here I am reporting to all of you...all my energy is just gone today. But! There are blonde brownies in the oven (Dh has been asking for them). So I'm not a totally worthless wife.

 

Also, my belly is super achy, a sort of muscle-achiness. What's that about?

 

And for the last week or so, I have had the most insane sweet tooth! Usually EVERYTHING is way too sweet for me, but now I'm dreaming of juices and chocolate and cookies and more juices. I've read that a sugar craving usually means the body actually wants protein, so protein is pretty much all I've been eating, with a few little indulgences. What do you do about a crazy sugar craving?

 

 

Dear baby: Please come soon. I'm tired of being pregnant and I'd really like to carry you around without your head being between my legs and your feet in my ribs. Love, Your Mama

 

(Eeeee....almost someone's mama. Oh, holy crap)

Hehehehe! =D

 

.....I am, apparently, really effing peevish today. Went off on one friend who thought it was funny to mock me when one of those lovely dilation-cramps caught me off-guard and made me wince. Later went off on another who, when I mentioned that my insurance carrier resets their fiscal year on December 1 and therefore I'm hoping baby comes in a week early to save myself a new deductible/copay, went off on one of his usual long-winded rants about how the US's health care system sucks and everything is sparkles and magic ponies over in Canada.

 

I'm normally pretty patient/tolerant/good-humored, but... Are people trying to piss me off today?? >.>

I have no sweet tooth normally, then through most of the pregnancy it was curbed with lots of yogurt and berries, but it was raging out of control for a while so I gave in.  I just baked a lot for about 2 weeks.  Now it's gone again and my husband is sad, lol.  I really don't think it was protein-related for me.

post #40 of 58

I just polished off another batch of oatmeal M&M cookies, made them two days ago, my kids have only had a few.... Fully expecting another 2 pound weight gain this week. But, I don't think its a protein issue with me, either. I had LOTS of protein today, a double burger (yikes!) full fat cottage cheese and peanut butter. Wow, no wonder I'm a cow, LOL (and wincing at the same time!)
