post #81 of 134

I am also horribly cranky, - i just feel like hiding in a corner, or ignoring my kids and cleaning the house, which is what i did most of today, i also completely blew off our home school routine today - i have a long list for the weekend.. which i've decided is better than being bored like i was earlier this week .. i have a lot going on this week so i'm hoping it will go by quickly..

 

my belly feels more like a box than a round belly now - it feels like it has corners and a flat shelf on the top.. doesn't feel all that big, it just feels like there is a full size baby in there (cause, duh, there is) 

 

.. and 5pt harnesses on the couch sounds like the BEST IDEA EVER.

My crazy Ob offered me the option of have an induction whenever I want just to get it over with!!!!!WTH.  I seriously cant stand the American Medical establishment. so awful. I told her no thanks, I'll wait until the baby is ready

Jean- our kids sound alike! my older one (4) is very independant and pretty self-sufficient. My younger one (2) also used to be attached to me 24/7, but has started becoming a lot more independant lately.. partially due to lots of playing with his brother. :)

 

and I don't know that age has anything to do with it... I'm only 27! Maybe it is a 3rd pregnancy thing?

post #84 of 134

I think I'm blaming the aches and pains on age because I was 24 and 26 when I had my other two... so I feel so much older this time, even though I'm not really that much older!

 

Once my younger dude turned 2 he got so much more independent, too, and continued to progress in that way. So you have that to look forward to :). And I bet having a new baby will help him mature as well.

I am 32 now and I was 17,21,24,and 27 when I had my others, and I absolutely feel a difference,  so much easier when I was younger.

my mother just left. i can finally regain some of my sanity and nerves. what was supposed to be a 2 night stay turned into 7. surrender.gif

 

she likes to tell me that i am older for starting to have children. it may or may not drive me up a wall. i'm 27, and i cannot imagine having children at any earlier point in my life, i just would not have been a good mother or nearly mentally stable/prepared as i am now.

if it makes you feel any better (ha!), I'm 23 years old. both my mama and mother-in-law like to tell me how young my husband and I are to be starting a family... but they started their respective families at 19 and 21! I feel *totally* ready (in the whole "ready as I'm ever going to be, can't really truly prepare for it" kind of way) to start a family and have had a fantastic experience with pregnancy. 

 

there will be naysayers at any age, I think. eyesroll.gif

Yeah I'm 31 and still don't feel ready lol! I don't think you ever truly do when it's your first. I definitely have aches and pains even though its my first. My hip pain and pelvic pain started at 20 weeks and hasn't really let up since!

LOL!!!  my mother, whom i love dearly, is not welcome around me when i'm hugely pregnant!  i can call her daily if i want, but don't show up!  

 

i started at 25, and now, at 32 on my 5th, had a deep pelvic aching in the last 2 weeks that i never had before.  i don't think it's age.  i wasn't ready for kids before 25, and if i hadn't taken the chance, don't know that i would have been ready.  i would still be putting it off, or talking myself out of it for sure!  my hubby was only 23 when we got pregnant w/ our first and it was a bit hard for him!

 

that said, he says he doesn't think this round of pregnancy has been as hard as the end of last pregnancy, since he hasn't been kicked out of my bed yet.  so apparently, while i think i'm in pain, since it doesn't affect our sex life, it's not that bad?!?  nut.gif

 

okay- 2 more babies this weekend.  i wish it were going to be me.  started false labor last night and on and off today, but since i've never gone early, i just can't imagine that this one would choose a civilized time to arrive!  it's too cozy in there.  so someone, next one!

Well I finally called my mw about this yeast infection and she said to get the monistat 3 day. So DH is picking that up on his way home today. Hoping it works and doesn't cause any problems.
The acv seems to have been the most effective of the things I have tried so far, but I'm just ready for it to be done already. I'm terribly worried about pushing the baby out through this sensitive skin and tearing in the front. Seems like it would be dreadful to tear in that direction.

I'm SO looking forward to being able to sleep on my back again soon!

Totally not helpful! I'm 32 and still one of the few in our circle having kids and here in our expat community i'm 5-8 years younger than all of the other moms-to-be. I actually get a bit left out of stuff like I'm the 'kid' of the bunch. Was not expecting that!

I feel like a crazy person, wandering restlessly from room to room and snapping at anything that moves or talks. My back hurts all the time, the dark, freezing weather is making it so that I can't go outside, and the "did you have your baby yet" questions have started rolling in. DH keeps insisting that it's too early but it just makes me resent him for holding on to his freedom for longer while mine was given up a while back.

 

I was doing so well and was so comfortable, but it's like a switch suddenly went off this morning and I want to have this baby NOW

post #93 of 134

kellybeth, especially nowadays, I can't imagine thinking 27 is "old" for starting to have kids! Most of my pre-kid friends are not even close to having babies yet and I'm a few years older than you. Hopefully your sanity and nerves are improving :).

 

odinsmama I hope your YI gets cleared up. You poor thing!

post #94 of 134

i think because my family and my husband's family got started on the baby making when they were both 18 & 19, it makes us look older in comparison, but who knows. we're one of the firsts among our friends to get started. 

 

odinsmama-hope it gets better soon!

 

got into bed early tonight just to have my first back pain contractions. very intense couple of minutes there, but still have tightening on my abdomen and the stabbing cervix thing going on. it's not like a pain i have ever felt before, it's just intense, not painful. very strange. i'm totally ready to have this baby if she wants to come now. i can't imagine there is very much room in there with how she's beating me up from the inside with those feet, hands and butt. bustin' outta this joint.

odinsmama - hope the monistat works! (and quickly!) 

 

I am (obviously) older than i was for my 1st 3 pregnancies (32, was 25 for the 1st) , but this has been my easiest overall .. my first was the worst, 3rd probably 2nd worst.. either way, this one has been dramatically better - my 1st trimester was hard, and the past few weeks have been bad but the middle? amazing.  this has been my 1st pregnancy with a dramatically different diet though, i think it must have helped.. i also know my chiropractor has REALLY helped, but i saw him through my last pregnancy too and it was pretty horrible overall.. 

 

I think they may have slowed down a bit now that i moved to my birth ball, but i was laying on the couch for the last hour having pretty strong BHish ctx every 5 mins ..  almost starting to wonder .. its probably a combination of the stronger RRLT i started drinking today (always makes me have lots of ctx, though usually not this regular) and the full moon/upcoming weather change..

I have this crazy wide-wake thing now. I can't sleep till 1 or so then I'm up at 6 feeling like I could walk on water and other than a short nap for maybe an hour that's all my body wants. I'm totally wired. No idea why. Usually I don't function at all on less than 8-9 hours.

Sounds like we might have more babies soon! orngbiggrin.gif
post #98 of 134

I was crampy and having pretty decent contractions all afternoon/evening yesterday, and a lot in the night that kept me from sleeping. Still feeling crampy this morning..... Like I am about to start my period. COME ON BABY!!! I can't do weeks of this (after already doing weeks of braxton hicks! all day/night)..... I will be 39 weeks tomorrow!

 

waywornwanderer- I was 23 when I had my first as well. :) I was completely "ready", but I have always been an "old soul" I think. Was married at 19, etc. Most of my friends with babies are older than me, and most of my pre-kid friends that are my age also don't have any children (many aren't even married).

post #99 of 134

ctx lasted til the early morning hours.. then stopped.. so dumb.  i thought i'd be pretty worn out and sore today but i feel ok so far .. i'm going to try repeating to myself about how these 'practice' ctx are a good thing..  that was just the first night when they demanded my attention that will probably going on for weeks.. 

 

I've been having REALLY weird dreams the past couple nights ...

I also had cramping and contractions last night and the baby was pretty low. Oh, the lovely feeling of your bladder being about to burst and all you pee is a trickle, lol! I still think I have a little while yet. Baby just feels comfy in there. Since I'm just 37 weeks that's perfectly fine with me! :) Can't wait till we have more babies!
