Thread of insignificant pregnancy complaints - Page 2

post #21 of 38
I definately have placenta brain. I just, somehow, erased a whole memory card on our camera, on accident. Then proceeded to cry a river about it....Im back to normal now. But, heck, how did I even do that? Ive never erased pics from the camera. I cant even remember what I did to try and figure it out!!! I am just getting so stupid.

And, I totally get BH when I have to pee too, so i go 103 times a day. But, I might as well just pee in my pants intentionally when I feel I have to go, because thats what I end up doing every time I walk briskly, laugh, cough, breathe...lol!

And Im just so damn tired. im anemic and have uped my iron intake (food and supplements) but it isnt helping.

But...I reallly do love being pregnant. My dh always says "I dont know how you can say you love being pregnant with all this pre-term labor, and peeing in your pants, and no sex rule " But...I really do.

I know it shouldn't even be a complaint. I know it's a blessing. But the roiling, heaving, bumpy mass that is my stomach can be so uncomfortable. This baby is so active so often and so vigorously and forcefully that I actually interrupt myself while talking to say, "OOPH!" or "EEP!" or "OUCHIE!" And when I finally get DD down to sleep and lay down in my bed, I feel like i'm hosting a 3-ring circus featuring eels, guinea pig gladiator fights, and cervical jousting. DD was so quiet and soft, comparatively!

Also, the not being able to bend over and pick up stuff is getting to be a bit trying around the house. But overall, I know I can't and shouldn't complain.... but still.... sometimes I do.

so I think this is a mixed blessing, my hair and nails grow wildly when Im pregnant, but some "hair" grows so much that I think I need a special team of stylists or "waxers" to tame it....anyone else, geesh!

Here too. I'm constantly getting "reminders" to give her more space or to not put pressure on her. Opinionated little thing!

I'm also part of the don't ask, don't tell hair club for preggo women.

You ladies still have toenails?!? I'm assuming the eclipse of my belly made them disappear 'cause I haven't seen them for a while!

This is so me. Although I really do love it. I interrupt myself sometimes too. Dh says my tummy looks like I have Bugs Bunny tunneling around in there.

I totally understand this. This baby is so much more active, and when he/she starts all that flipping around it hurts!!! Following that it likes to kick while turning 360 degrees. One minute it's my cervix, the next my lungs and right back to the bladder. It's awful. Plus this baby hates when we are in the car. It does not like pressure being put on it at all. It does not seem to understand that there are things that must get done everyday and I cannot spend life laying down to give it as much room as possible .

Then there is the whole BH when having to pee.... No leakage yet, but man I have to hurry there. I do find that I sweat so much more, especially downstairs. It has drove me to going through mutiple pairs of underwear when home or wearing a cloth pad when I go out to help stave off wetness.

I am also bummed by how limited I feel in this pregnancy. With ds I felt so much better till the day I had him, but with this one at 27.5 weeks I am tired, my feet hurt, I get BH doing normal household chores and have to stop what I am doing. It is hard to even keep the house up and chase after ds. I remember completly re-landscaping the front gardens at 39 weeks with ds, and not even being sore later. But a walk around the aquarium and I am hurting for a day. I feel bad for ds because his outings are being more limited or he is having to go to the smae places over and over as they are air conditioned and do not require a lot of mommy interaction .

Pelvic pain..... I never had this with ds, so it is all new to me. It is not painful when sitting, but while walking sometimes it is exteremly painful. This one worries me most as I know this baby has many more pounds to add to itself and it is not even head down yet. I cannot imagine how I will feel soon.

So I am kinda whiny right now, thanks for listening. DP just doesn't get it, as all she remembers is how energetic and easy going it was with ds, she doesn't seem to understand this time it is all different. Especially with the adhesions I know have from my c-section. I can feel them pull, and that is an all new kind of pain. I am sure they will be lots of fun during labor :

I had to have DH scrub my feet the other day when they got really dirty outside. I can't reach.

Feet in the ribs

Swelling...the legs, the cankles, the huge face. Yuck!

Jumping on my bladder in the middle of the night!

Time to give this a !

* Having to sit so far away from the table, causing me to have to lean forward awkwardly (which hurts my back) to take a bite, or risk dropping food on my tummy while eating.

* I only have an inch between my belly and the steering wheel in the car. I try to avoid driving whenever possible, but sometimes it is necessary.

*nods* And there's not enough room in my tub for a belly and my ummm, rather enlarged posterior

I'm sick of people pretending to call me for other reasons

People who ask if I know what gender my baby will be. Okay, I realize I have been overtrained by academic liberal minded linguistic political correctness, but I won't know what gender my baby is even after I know what sex it is. That's something my baby gets to figure out on its own somewhere down the road.

And also, nookie is sometimes too difficult to deal with. Finding the perfect position that doesn't hurt one of us - and also is going to lead to, um, success...argh, it's hard!

You mean you can still get OUT of the bathtub??? I've started avoiding baths like the plague, normally I love them. But it's just too hard to get out of the tub

Yeppers, I get up in the morning and I can't even hold my mug with my right hand.

It's very sad, but I no longer care very much if I don't get nookie. This is so unlike me. Thank goodness, sort of, DH has been sick, so he hasn't been in the mood, either.

Reading through this thread made me laugh. I was complaining like 7 weeks ago about not being able to see my whoohoo? I dont' even think I still have one, although I do hope I do, otherwise how is the baby getting out?

At nearly 35 weeks, I'm thinking I had no right to complain back then.

Getting completely out of breath from walking a few steps...

Forgetting that I can't "squeeze" into tight places and then banging my putruding belly button on whatever is in the way.

HEARTBURN!!

Clothes not fitting

Trying to get out of bed (yikes!) Its really an acrobatic scene!

And lastly,: wanting to eat EVERYTHING in sight!! Especially junkfood....oh Halloween is only a week away:

Oh my goodness, I've done that more times than I can count. I'm just not suppose to be this big! Right now I have a sore scrape on my belly from an incident with the door yesterday.

Yes! Getting out of bed to rush to the bathroom in the middle of the night is so hard now. I have to like rock back and forth on my back to get enough momentum to swing myself up and my legs off the side. I look and feel ridiculous.
