Drooling, back pain, insomnia-oh my!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I feel like Dorothy on the way to the Emerald city-all the horrible things I am dealing with in these last few days....

I have been drooling uncontrollably...weird!

I have been having the WORST lower back and pelvic pain...

And I can't sleep more than an hour and a half at a time!

I am SO ready for this baby to come-I can't wait to get back to SOME semblance of normaility with my hormones(and for the relaxin to be GONE so I can hold a chiropractic adjustment!!)...

BUT-he cannot come tomorrow...my brother in law's birthday is tomorrow and I can't handle him sharing his birthday..lol..but the 8th is JUST FINE

In fact, (no pressure here) my father is convinced he is coming at 08/08/08 at 8:08..lol..let's see!

8/8/8 at 8:08 would be pretty awesome!

Ok, so this made me laugh out loud, and it takes a lot to make me laugh. I might smile inside, but rarely does a giggly noise come out of my mouth. You did it, Shiloh

Upon reading this thread, I realize I've been drooling in my sleep too. I remember now that I had to turn my pillow over in the night because I found myself sleeping in a wet spot. Hmmm....

Wow, and I thought I was just drooling extra for no reason...I usually drool a little in my sleep anyway but I've been soaking my pillow lately! Never knew it was a pregnant thing....

And I second the ridiculous farting...I have never been so gassy in my life. It's embarassing. I sound like an entire brass band is coming out of my butt.

I had the drooling early on but it's under control now (I think!). But boy, my BUTT HURTS all the time. From rectal pressure, from constipation, from hemorrhoids, from my pelvis falling apart.... my butt just can't wait for this baby to be born.

My (and DH's for sure) chief complaint is the SNORING. I've never in my life snored and now it's like a freight train. I wake myself up so it's not hard for me to believe DH when he's imitating me in the morning.

Hey there's one thing I don't think I have been doing - snoring!
post #15 of 23
A million times a night it seems I'm waking up with drool all over my cheek, down my neck, and in a big puddle on the pillow. Yea, for muscles so relaxed that they won't hold my jaw closed so I don't drool constantly. Bleh.

Between that, the perma-heartburn, and the non-stop belching, oh, and the billion trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I'm surprised my DH hasn't gotten a hotel room for a decent night's sleep.

Then there're the nights where we lay down to sleep, and I can't. I try to lay still, but the baby's kicking and moving, my body won't relax, the heartburn's threatening to burn a hole out my chest, and I wind up very restless. I don't want to sit up and disturb his sleep, but I'm not sure that my laying there is any better.

I'm huge as a house, and everytime I roll over, it's like trying to relocate a beached whale. Actually, I think moving the whale might be easier.

Okay, baby, it's time for you to come out... I need my body back.

Thank you ladies!!: I seriously needed the laugh! I'm feeling ALL of the above except for the heartburn. Dried papaya works wonders!

This thread made me feel much better about the way I have been feeling lately! Even with all these weird end of pregancy symptoms, I just don't think I am ready to endure labor! Everyone else seems so ready and willing and I just want to wait? Is there something wrong with me, lol? Last few nights I have gotten no more than 2 hours of sleep at a time before fanagaling a way to get up and go potty. It is misery trying to get out of bed and then falling back in bed in my little surrounding of pillows I have going on. Tonight baby is moving so much it is painful (or maybe contx?) at times. So I just took a bath and was trying to get sleepier reading on this forum. I swear it has been such a blessing this pregnancy to come here!

Oh this is sooo me! I normally don't get hot let alone sweat, I usually like the temp in the house to be in the 80's but now I sweat when its like that. I have to have the fan on everynight and the ac on during most of the day (energy bill is gonna suck). I can barely sleep because of trips to the potty and then tossing and turning then I have my 4yo hop in bed and try to cuddle up (ugh its just too hot for that and I really dont want to be touched right now) oh and when he's not cuddling he's kicking me during his toss and turn session, then hubby is snoring up a storm, then I'm sweatin even with the fan on so I can't sleep, or I'm thirsty AGAIN, or heart burn is killing me, ugh the list goes on and on.... I've been feeling content lately with her taking a little longer although truth be told I'd really like her out tomorrow.

"Come out, Come out, tomorrow please!"

I told my hubby about this thread and specifically about what you said and he replied, "ah, so now he knows what she puts up with every night!" lol
