30 weeks - SICK OF BEING PREGNANT!!!!!

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 

OMG, I am so sick of being pregnant. Really. Today I am nearly jumping out of my skin. I want a smooth glass of Amaretto. I want skinny feet and ankles. I want to wake up with no back pain. No achy knees. My stretch marks even hurt! Agh. I'm so over this. 

 

And yet I don't want them born this early. I'm hoping to make it into the new year. At least past Christmas. At first my goal was Thanksgiving. Now it's Christmas.

32 weeks and in the same boat... The back and knees are the worst, and not being able to recline on my couch to read a book... And the peeing... All. Night. Long.  We're almost there, though!  Just a few more weeks... Keep yourself busy so time passes more quickly, it's all we can do.  :)

I was hoping my doc would find some clever reason to bump up my due date again.

But... nothing doing. I'm on bedrest so I can't be too busy. I've been going to work 

every day just to get out of the house.

 

What sucks is I'm not enjoying my life. I want 2012 to come so fast that I've allowed

life to slip right past me. I should be relishing these final days and all I can do is 

complain. 

 

30w 3d - one day at a time.

32 wks & in the same boat. Never been so sick of it before. My body is not coping well this time around & I'm sick of feeling utterly useless.

34 weeks and right there with ya!

Yes. Well, not so much sick of being pregnant, but sick of the worry, anxiety and stress. I don't want our little girl to be born right now (33wks) because it would be devastating to have to leave her in NICU. BUT, I wish I was 37 weeks right now and in labor (or better yet, just finished with labor) so this could just be over and I could have my alive and healthy baby in my arms!!

Also at 30 weeks and i could not agree more!!!  At my appointment last week i had my ultrasound and check up and they informed me that the little one is weighing in at 3lbs 11oz which puts him 15 days ahead of schedule. 

 

In my head I was thinking "Hell yeah, come out two weeks early little man! Please!!!"

 

I keep telling my husband"Once Christmas hits, this kid can come out any damned time."

 

With him measuring ahead of schedule, i don't feel so bad about wishing for him to make an early arrival.

34 weeks and I started to feel this way the last few days. The baby feels so heavy now and I'm getting more and more uncomfortable as each day goes by. I'm giving him 3 more weeks before eviction papers!

Oh my goodness, I wish! I'm 31w tomorrow and can't believe I made it this far.

I'm on bedrest, too, but in the hospital.  I get my BP and temp taken four times a day.  I have sores on my bottom that make it painful to lay down on that side.  After being poked for no fewer than 20 blood draws (with multiple tubes each time), they finally installed a PICC line into my arm, which itches.  My hip bones are sore from not being walked around.  I've been on magnesium sulfate three or four times. 

 

But all this will be worth it if I can make it to 35 weeks (when they'll induce me).

I'm at 34 weeks...and I'm exhausted. Exhausted from school, work, all the recent problems I've been having..I'm just..fed up. 

 

School is thankfully winding down, my last day of work is 12/20 (it's early but I wanted some ME time before baby arrives), and I'm hating taking such strong medication while pregnant. I'm worried about her. 

 

I feel so heavy..I'm out of breath all the time it seems, if I bend down and get back up I have to pee..sleep? what is that? Knock on wood the only good thing recently is my skin hasn't been freaking the heck out. But I have hopes that my labor pains will be less intense than this dental pain has been.

bow2.gif I had mag sulf once for PTL at 30 weeks. OMG that was so uncomfortable! Kudos to you, Mama, for giving your baby a chance to bake as long as possible! Sounds like a HUGE sacrifice!

It is 85 degrees today in San Diego.  WT...?  Here I thought I would get lucky because my third trimester was during the "winter", and now I'm ROASTING and uncomfortable and have some serious pregnancy rage at this heat (yeah, real productive to direct my anger at climate, I know).  My house is a mess, construction is not anywhere NEAR finished and my husband keeps inventing new additions to the construction, and I just want to get everything settled for the baby to arrive into a somewhat organized environment.  I woke up EIGHT TIMES last night to go to the bathroom.  My back and hips were hurting a ton and I've been having crazy dreams every time I fall asleep.  irked.gif

 

I can see why some women induce as soon as they hit full term (not that I ever would).

yeahthat.gif I want the whole world to stop so that I can get things done. I feel like telling everyone and everything in my life that I'm on strike! Because I need to wash baby clothes and knit and sleep. Soon enough...

Well, I didn't make it to 35 weeks.  Little guy was born this morning by emergency c-section due to a complete placental abruption.  25w5d

Congratulations on your little man, mama... although I'm sure you are (both) just exhausted from everything you have been through, I hope you & he continue to get stronger and feel better!

post #17 of 36

Thinking of your sweet boy and you tonight!  I hope he's well!

post #18 of 36

35 weeks as of today (it's technically Monday), and I'm over being pregnant.  This is par for the course for me in any pregnancy, but this time around, I've had a LOT of contractions, things are REALLY tight in my tummy, and I'm in a decent amount of pain.

 

However, DH is more ready for this to be over with than I am, I think.  (And I am SO ready to be done!)  He has been SUCH a good sport about doing stuff for me while I sit and whine (and he seems to genuinely appreciate what I'm going through when he has his hand on my tummy and can feel the beating I've been getting!)

 

My midwife has me starting evening primrose oil and, er, semen "donations" this week....the end is in sight!

post #19 of 36

At 32 weeks, I'm starting to complain for sure.  My back hurts most of the time, there is no comfortable way to sleep, etc.  The biggest thing at this point is how much I am OVER the pregnancy "don'ts". I want some wine! I want some sushi! I want to color my hair! Sigh... 8 more weeks....

post #20 of 36

Ooooh, I had such a bad day, one of those days where your belly feels like a giant, hard water balloon waiting to burst!  I had to run errands and got a bunch of pitying looks from people - I must have looked very uncomfortable in my own skin!  My SIL is arriving in 30 minutes to spend 4 days with us, and I have to make dinner, but all I want to do is crawl into bed.

I can't imagine anyone more ready for this to be over than my husband.  I try not to whine and complain too much, but sometimes I just feel really out of sorts after a night of not sleeping, and I can tell it's starting to wear on him.  I guess he appreciates what I'm going through, but I haven't gotten any appreciative comments from him and sometimes when I'm hormonal it makes me so sad... :(  I know he has a hard time expressing himself, and his actions speak louder than his words, but it's just hard sometimes.  :(

 

I hope you guys had a better day...
