I'm tired of the "how do you feel?" question every 10 minutes from my family. Which is really wenchy of me -- I know they're only asking because they genuinely care and they genuinely want to help. But each time they ask, I want to yell, "I feel pretty damn pregnant" and throw something.
I admit, I am completely hormonal and want to hole up in the bedroom, watch stupid TV, and cry all day long. The REALLY awful thing is that if they were NOT asking me how I felt, I'd be upset that they didn't seem to care.
On top of this, I have to inject myself with heparin (a blood thinner to prevent clots...I had a nasty clot during my first pregnancy) twice a day, and I'm supposed to stop or delay a shot if I think I might be in early labor. Well, I've been feeling like I'm in early labor each day for the past 2 weeks...so I figure I will just go ahead and take each shot no matter WHAT I feel like, it's better to risk losing too much blood and needing a transfusion than risk getting an undetectable blood clot and a pulmonary embolism. Arg.
And then I feel guilty for being so grumpy. I am genuinely thankful that I am about to have another baby, and I'm really excited about that and happy.
Hormones, hormones...moods are up, down, all around...
