30 weeks - SICK OF BEING PREGNANT!!!!! - Page 2

post #21 of 36

I'm just shy of 35 weeks and I am DONE! I seriously feel like my skin is going to burst. I can't sleep to save my life. School just needs to be done with..and work..oh lordy work I am SO cranky I'm not sure I'll make it til the 20th. And I am so uncomfortable..does anyone else feel that way? Like seriously..my bras have become the most awful torture devices ever. I can't stand to wear one. My bed seems uncomfy, clothes, bras especially, just everything. I know I'll miss being pregnant..I'll miss being able to carry her with me everywhere but oh my gosh..I feel wiped out.

I agree with all of you ladies.. glad to read I'm not alone. I'm 34 weeks and cannot breathe anymore! Sitting hurts, laying down is impossible, getting up UGH, heartburn, constant hunger! The baby is filling into my rib cage more and more now.  I'm so exhausted, so achy, so cranky.. I just yelled randomly because all I want to do it lay down on my freakin' stomach and be comfortable for a minute! Sigh, I feel like it's not going to get any better after the baby comes though... I'll still be uncomfortable, just in different ways :/

Bras are my enemy. I change mine all day. I can't stand wearing one and I can't stand not wearing one.

Oh..imakecutebabies..I am so with you..I hate complaining about being pregnant..I know some people would just kill to be pregnant but I just feel so...huge. It's hard work even getting out of bed. I feel like my body is failing. I would LOVE to lay on my stomach..oh my favorite sleeping position.

I hate complaining too! Which is why I try to do it in the relative safety of MDC... I went through many years of struggle with NOT being pregnant so now that I am, I'm kind of shocked at myself! For example, my latest rant

 

I'm 34 weeks as well and sooo frustrated. My feet got really swollen again today just from walking around and then sitting on my computer chair (which I see now really cuts off circulation to my lower legs, so no wonder)... so I tried the recliner - no dice, got dizzy from the giant uterus pressing on my veins (I have really low bp); tried lying down on my side, but couldn't get comfortable enough to work on my laptop, tried sitting tailor-style on the floor until my back hurt, tried taking a nap because this was a few hours of trying different things and getting very little done - couldn't sleep because my hips hurt and couldn't find a way to be positioned where they didn't hurt...

 

started crying at that point, ate some junk food out of sadness, which somehow triggered HORRIBLE diarrhea during which I thought I was going to pop the baby out, so I was trying to kind of hold back but what a TERRIBLE feeling that was... 

 

Currently back on the recliner but propped up almost upright with pillows, trying to concentrate (I have a paper due tomorrow) but it's not going well, because, you know, pregnancy brain. Plus, I'm getting stupid leg cramps because I missed my long walk today (it has been the only thing keeping me sane but I thought I'd better take it easy today). Going to be a long night. At least I'm used to not sleeping already!

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



So I ended up having him about 12 hours after this post (see siggy).  And now, I would much rather be suffering ALL the discomforts of pregnancy than recovering from an emergency c-section. 

 

I hope you all's pregnancies are comfortable.  Keep the babies baking.  :hugs:

I don't color my hair, so I have no advice about that, but I have had half a glass of red wine a couple of times, and have had sushi as well.  Red wine is perfectly fine to have occasionally during pregnancy, in small amounts (when my cousin's baby died this summer, while everyone was doing tribute shots of Jager for him, I sipped a shot of red wine.)  And as my old OB in Hawaii used to tell me, "What do you think, pregnant women in Japan stop eating sushi just because they are pregnant?"  Just stay away from the ones that are high in mercury and make sure it's fresh (I'm in a landlocked state...I asked our local sushi place what day the fresh stuff comes in, and make sure that I'm there within a day or two of that.)  Or opt for the non-raw version - shrimp, veggie, etc.

I am also ready to be done, And it stinks because it took us 7-8 years to conceive this baby so whenever I complain to anyone but DH all I get is "Well you wanted this". Ugh, not what I need to hear. DD, 6, is terrible with loving up my belly and while it was cute at first I now just want her to leave my belly alone. Sleeping is uncomfortable and I had been having bad back pain and went to the Dr. and she thinks part of my cartiledge has torn in my pelvis but of course there is nothing I can do except hope it doesn't seperate completely. Everything else checked out fine and we will do one last ultrasound on Dec. 30th to see how big she is. All I could think of was thats a long time away considering she thought she was a little over 4 lbs. now. Also Christmas shopping is not fun because walking hurts after a while, I think I am giong to be a in a motor scooter soon!

Added carpal tunnel syndrome to the list of woes. I've never had it before and it's completely ridiculous. (Due to swelling in my hands from water retention I suppose...) Not only am I now waking up to pee, because of hip pain, because of general insomnia, (attempting to sleep is basically pointless) but now I get to wake up because the thumb and first two fingers of whatever had I'm sleeping on are the source of pain. Or they are completely numb, and it takes a REALLY long time to get feeling back into them!

 

I can't knit, hold a fork, pen or anything else requiring "gripping" for very long (probably for the best in the case of the fork ;) Typing is alright because I can keep my wrists flat. Using a mouse is okay for a little while. I have so much more sympathy for people who suffer from CTS regularly. I could not imagine. It would ruin my life.

 

So, pregnancy? I've REALLY had it now! I'll be 36 weeks on Tuesday, and the thought of going past 40 doesn't even seem real.

Well the trips are here. Arrived Dec 2nd. The boys came home 11 days later, my girl just before Christmas. All

are EBFing. I made sure of that before we left the hospital. I am lucky if I get more than 2 hours of sleep in a row.

None of them sleep on the same schedule. Preemies are tough. That's for sure. We ventured out yesterday and

went to Disneyland. Had a wonderful time. They seem to enjoy the outdoors. And so do I. My PPD was very short

this time around. I didn't have much time to pity myself while they were in the NIC. 

 

I delivered at 32 weeks. The boys were roughly 4.5 lbs a piece and my daughter 3.6 lbs. My GD caused them to be

so big but it worked in their favor so I'm not too angry at my post-pg body. I'm down to 168 lbs and ready to start

exercising. I just don't have the time. Oh but it's fine because I love love love my huge beautiful family and having sons. love.gif

 

Congratulations to all of the other new moms on the board. I'm sorry I can't update more often! I hope to keep in touch!

Many congratulations, Smurfette! Amazing work.

Congratulations!!  How exciting to have them here. :)

post #32 of 36

Congrats on your new (much bigger!) family! It's good to hear that they are home and eating/doing well! Feeding one is hard; there is no way I could even imagine being in your shoes :)

Congrats! 

I am surprised you took 32 week preemies to disneyland with two other babies?  What was the point?  Did you just walk around all day - or sit on a bench feeding various kids? I can't imagine that either you or your husband got to go on any rides - because who would leave someone with 5 babies?  Did you have other people with you?   When a friend of mine from high school had triplets after having twins (last year) she was in the newspaper.  Did you get any press?

Congratulations!
 

Wow, discharged after 11 days?  That's truly a miracle!  My DD#1 was a 32 weeker with no major issues other than the A's and B's, she was mostly a feeder and grower but she was in the NICU for 23 days, and she was only a singleton! 

 

Also, I see you also have PCOS.  You must feel so fortunate to have been so fertile, since a lot of women with it have fertility issues.

 

I couldn't imagine having newborn preemie trips who have just been released from hospital and taking those and your twin babies to Disneyland!  Your story is truly inspiring!!!!!

post #35 of 36

Stop being silly, we took 3-week-old quads on an African safari.  It was the trip of a lifetime; the kids loved it and still talk about it when we see them.  mischievous.gif
