post #181 of 224

No real issues to whine about here, just so, so tired.  Fighting fatigue every day.  If my nutrition flags even for a few hours I feel it, or if I let up on my water consumption.  And all I can think about is how much more tiring the post-partum period is, and how will I possibly manage then if I'm barely making it now. 

 

Well, that's not ALL I think about.  I also worry about labor and going into that with such a low energy tank. 

 

Better get some rest so i can struggle with this again tomorrow. 

 

At least post-partum I'll be home for a while.  And when I'm not feeling the fatigue, which is like 80% of the time, I feel wonderful.  So glad to have this community to share all this with!

So frakking tired. Took TWO naps today and still exhausted.

 

But the worst thing is that my SPD pain is starting to become unbearable. It's almost impossible to find a comfortable position. I almost wish I could be put on bed rest for it, just so I had a good reason to refuse walking or moving. I'm seeing the chiro tomorrow, but I don't know how much it will help. It seems to help less and less with each subsequent adjustment.

 

And I'm starting to feel like I'm losing my mind (partly from exhaustion, I'm sure). I just don't feel like I can handle anything.

Well, I have a whine now, so I thought to include it.

But first, I feel so bad for you other mamas with Pain (SPD, sciatic, etc.), disease (yeast, pinkeye, etc) and other justifiable complaints of late pregnancy. My issues are bladder issues now.

I woke up from a nap at my office and could not make it across the hall to the bathroom*. In fact, I could not make it beyond two steps from my air mattress! Luckily, dh was in the attached office and heard me and brought an empty Costco biscotti container for me to pee in.

If I wasn't in late pregnancy I would find this hilarious and mortifying, instead I just feel dragged down.

* Usually I work from home since all I seem to do once I make it to the office is sleep. May as well get work done then nap rather than waste time in the car!

Wahhh. I've been having BMs since I woke up this morning and they aren't slowing down. I thought I was in the clear and ran out to get DD some much needed items and I barely made it in the store before I had to go to the bathroom again. Then I didn't even get the items I needed before I had to turn around and come home. Now I'm here and I'm feeling the need to go to the bathroom some more. How much can there be in there? Guh. I have to go get DD in less than an hour and I'm scared to leave at this point. 

 

Edit to add: Was pooing right up until I left to get DD. DH was ready to go get her for me but I had already left. Got there and sat in the car until the last second but then could barely walk up the 2-3 little steps to the door without feeling like my pelvis was splitting in half. Getting down the steps was even more painful and the poor guy waiting for me looked scared. I practically threw DD in the car and drove home while distracted by radiating pain in my thighs. So now we're home and eating lunch. I'm going to nap when DD does and see what happens. Just sitting here I have a lot of discomfort in my bottom so I dunno. I'd like to think this is something but I just can't help but think maybe it was something I ate yesterday and then the pain is a result of all the BMs. Baby is making big movements so I know she's doing okay. Just can't help but wonder what is really going on here.

Keeping an ear out for you, Tiff4ny. You've ben making progress the past week or so. Can you soak in a tub? Do you have a chiro you can visit?can someone do some hip presses for you?

I called my SIL who is a L&D RN at the hospital I will deliver at. Told her everything and she said "it very well could be the beginning of something or it could just be practice labor."ROTFLMAO.gif Thanks J! Haha.

 

Any way, she agreed I should lay down and pay close attention to what happens. Also I guess I'm to go straight in if I feel like I begin leaking even just a little bit. If the waves of pain get more consistent or stronger I need to go straight in as well. I'm glad she's working tonight and tomorrow night in case I need to go in, but we'll see. I'm not confident this will amount to anything.

Well, as expected I woke up from a short nap feeling achy and sore but nothing like I had earlier. I haven't had anymore throbbing pain or contractions but instead I just feel really worn down and mentally drained. I hopped in the shower and had my left arm go numb just standing in the water. Then when I got out I realized my ring was tight on that same arm and had this super overwhelming feeling of panic sweep over me until I wriggled it off. I'm just so over today... Feeling rather sickly now and not in a birthy way. Phoooey. What a rough day this has been. 

post #189 of 224
Ugh I'm sorry you had a lousy day, as I was reading the updates I was hoping it was going to turn into something!

Tiff4ny, here's hoping today goes better!
post #191 of 224

Thanks ladies. Last night got a whole lot busier in terms of feeling "birthy" but it petered off when I went to bed. I'm still dealing with residual stuff this morning. Going to relax and see what happens. DD is sick so she's home today so I don't even have to get out of my PJs and I certainly don't intend to. 

 

I told DH last night that in a way I had hoped it really was something. I'm just ready to do this. But I know I don't have control so I'm just going to roll with the pelvic punches.

Does anyone have excruciating pain in their pelvis that makes it almost impossible to walk? I've just gotten it recently, and it's worse in the evening (I'm guessing after being up and about all day?) It's off to the right of my pelvis, not front and center. I have a maternity belt and it kind of helps....but I wore it all day today and the pain is pretty unbearable tonight.

Do you think it might be round ligament pain? Have the babies been moving a lot? I get terrible, stop you in your tracks, shooting pain under my belly around the sides. It's not constant, but can last awhile. I rub it and warmth seems to help alleviate it. It's especially bad at night and seems to "catch" when I try rolling over.

Hmmm they have been moving a lot, not like rolling movements but lots and lots of wiggling. I guess that would make sense because baby A is way low on my right side where it hurts most (baby B is up higher on my left side). It totally hurts when I roll over, too! And when I first get out of bed, a car, etc. Ughhhh!!!

I woke up in the middle of the night with indigestion. More today too. Sigh.

It was the same for me with Baby A low on my right side. A week out from delivery it will be a distant memory. It's like someone took a hundred pounds off your pelvis. So excited for you! Life with twins is incredible.

I am so sick. Headache, coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, runny nose kind of cold. I'm drinking lots of tea and staying home as much as I can. All the coughing has caused something in my lower belly to pull and now it hurts.

Feel better soon! Being sick is the worst. Sorry to hear it. Rest up.

I hurt pretty badly, and lately my ectopic scar just stings all the time. It is about the size of a c/s scar (mine is 5") but different since it wasn't cut on stretched skin (so it is extremely tight) and is slightly higher on my abdomen. It hurts and sorta causes some depressing emotions to surface.

1babysmom, I am sorry about your scar. Do you have any vitamin E capsules you can break open and rub into the scar and surrounding area? If you like chocolate, let me recommend this edible skin food product which is cacao butter and coconut oil. Add something positive, some self-care and/or ense of play to your other memories.
