A major whine here:

I feel like crap. Nothing is going right and I have no energy to do anything. I hve constant pain in my pubic bone and am contantly leaking stuff (sooooooo gross) I pee all the time and am getting absolutely no sleep at night. I feel bad to not be all excited this pg. I am happy about the baby but just keep thinking when is it over!! My kids are driving me nuts. I feel like DS has watched way tooooo much TV lately but I have no energy to play with him. At least DD gets to go to school and play for a few hrs each day. But it takes almost every ounce of energy I have to walk and get her (DH has the car) and its only about 2 blocks! And the biggest bummer is my mom who was moving to AK on the 17th found out the ferry is full and has to leave on FRIDAY! So I am so upset about this. She won't even get to see the baby. Okay I know I could go on forever so I will stop now.

Awww, I'm sorry you're having a rough time! I have days like that too. I'm SO glad to be pregnant, and so looking forward to this baby joining our family, but other times I just feel SOOO tired/sore/emotional... and ready to be DONE with pregnancy.

For the trouble sleeping, have you tried taking calcium and magnesium? I find if I remember to take my cal/mag in the evening I sleep better than if I forget. It's a 2:1 ratio cal:mag so it's 500 cal/250 mag and it REALLY helps with muscle achiness/cramping and difficulty sleeping. Your body needs both of these minerals anyways, so it couldn't hurt to try it!

I hope you are feeling better soon!

i hear ya. i bet the weather here lateley not so much helping, no? (i'm in snoqualmie)

I've managed to get thru a lot of the poopiness by just literally living second by second. i try to not think beyond that.... kind of like suspended animation in a way....

anyhow, VENTING sometimes helps, so go for it!!! we'll send hugs right back!

Hugs. Yesterday I was exhausted and had to resort to a second cup of tea and wondered how I would get up the next day.

I still have a lot of tasks at work and at home, and it can be overwhelming to think about, so I try to do one task at a time, then rest, pray and relax. Then the next one...and try not to think about that Greek mythological character pushing the boulder up the hill, LOL

I'm starting to feel sick of it all though which I guess means I'm closer to the end.

I'm sorry you're having a rough ttime. But you're not alone at all.

Have you been tested for anemia? I found out that's why I was so utterly exhausted all the time.

Bless your heart -- it won't be too much longer.

Oh baby, I understand. I have bronchitis right now and am just miserable. My sister was teasing me that maybe we should name the baby "Nick Jr." after all the TV the kids are watching.

Just keep reminding yourself... this too shall pass.

Thanks everyone,
It was nice just to vent. I have been tested for anemia and my levels were great. So thats not it. If we are naming after shows then my DD will be DORA and if its not a girl then it will be either Bob or Diego. LOL I am feeling much better today so thanks everyone!

When my 8yos was a toddler, he named his favorite teddy bear "Hot Lava". I'll not be taking suggestions, thank you! LOL! (((((HUGS))))) sandi

My son insists we are naming the baby Rachel. It is a boy. He doesn't care.
