Big yes, Leigh and Yoma!! The sibling rivalry shouldn't be an option until we're no longer pregnant!!
And the sweating... All day, all night. Then freezing for a minute, only to sweat again moments later. OVER IT!!
Chloasma in the armpits. Yes, brown armpits.
My 4yo daughter and 30yo sister telling me I'm "getting fat" and then proceeding to tell me where the fat is visible. (Thank you, I have no mirror...)
Miniscule meals that still result in heartburn
Not one single pair of underwear is comfortable, so going without, then finding the unfortunate side effect of a wet spot on the back of my dress after sitting down. Damn.
Crazy dreams that have begun interfere with the lovely nights of sleep I've been enjoying for this entire pregnancy. The kind of weird like, did I take a hit of acid before bed??
The baby's hiccups. Seriously, I hate them. All 3 of my kids got them daily during the last 8 weeks or so, and I despise the sensation. I could take kicks, rolls, lumps all day and night, but this tic, tic, tic, tic deep inside unnerves me.
No one feeling sorry enough for me for all the above mentioned sufferings!
My SPD is awful this time around to, but much better than with my last pregnancy. I see the chiro once a week and it makes the biggest difference. I am so grouchy again. Like in the first trimester. I just want to be alone, which is hard with two other kids and a husband. My kids are watching too much TV. I feel like I need to hire someone to come take care of them properly.
I'm seeing the chiro weekly but honestly should've gone twice last week. Hubby is going twice weekly right now for his crazy messed up back. It's costing us a fortune between the two of us already. :( I may have to give in soon and go in twice a week, at least for a while. So glad there's no more than 2 more months of this, likely a bit less. ;)
Oh you guys! All of this stuff!!!
Right now it is the low, low pressure and lower back pain that are killing me. At the midwives' appointment last week a new student midwife was "in charge" of my appointment while one of my regular midwives sat in and played with my DS. The student kind of bulged her eyes and asked, "Wow, does it feel like you are carrying really low?" To which I replied, "Yes, why do you see him crowning?", it sure feels like it some of the time!
And I just get stuck nowadays. I will lay down to read to DS, then when he is asleep I try and get up to no avail. Most of the time I just give up and go to sleep with him then. But sometimes I really want to get up and try for that elusive grown-up time with DH! But then I figure if I can't even roll my broken butt out of bed, how will I be up for anything more active than that?
A have never been 7+ months pregnant in the summer before, but it makes otherwise bearable pregnancy side affects truly awful! Like most everything you ladies mentioned above, and some I may have missed: chafing, swelling, sweating, moving around/exercise, stinking, and on and on...
Yep to just about all of it!
Crafty: All truly "rantable" experiences! I had to laugh about the "cruel irony" about how much could be done in the next month if not for being pregnant- right there with you.
Things that are annoying me about pregnancy right now: Maternity clothes- hate them right now. don't like the over the belly pants, or the under the belly pants, feel like i heifer in the dresses and if even try to wear a non-maternity shirt it doesn't go down over the belly. So ready for regular clothes without the extra gathers or elastic empire waists that clearly are maternity.
Not being able to bend over to reach anything in the bottom half of the fridge or reach up to grab anything in the high kitchen cabinets. belly is just in the way.
Darkening melasma spot on my cheek and cystic acne on my jawline. Yuck.
Being indecisive and unable to concentrate on just about anything. I am starting to annoy myself.
Sooo scatter-brained. We had a few of people over for my birthday BBQ yesterday and my mind could barely wrap itself around those little things that need to happen when you have people over for dinner. Like, it took me ten minutes to get a new towel into the bathroom, I kept going to go get it and then I'd get side-tracked and have to remember what it was I went to the closet to get.
I have the wet line on my belly from the sink too. Our kitchen sink is built into a corner, so there's a deep ledge behind it. It's great for the compost bowl and whatnot - except that I can't reach it anymore...should find a new spot for it...
I cannot believe people are so rude to you guys about your big bellies! Man, I am so tired of people looking utterly shocked when I say that I'm just over a month from delivery. I get it - I look like a "normal pregnant woman" at 5 months, but just listen to me, I feel EVERY DAY of my 32+ weeks and more. I am exhausted and hurting all the time. And no one cares because obviously I can't be "that pregnant" because my belly is "so small". BLERGH.
Sorry guess I needed to vent! And small or not, the dang thing still gets in the way of life. :p
