I'm still exhausted from yesterdays Dr appt for dd, left at 11am, got there about 1 (traffic was light) but then found it didn't matter because they screwed up and scheduled ME for an appt as a new patient when the darn thing was for dd who's been going for a couple years and it took a while to straighten out. We finally got out of there around 5pm and I think I walked the whole dang time around the hospital and got to deal with LA rush hour traffic going home, its insane when your stuck at the corner of Wilshire and Westwood for 15 min because they shut down Santa Monica and are diverting all traffic down the one street you need which also happens to be the only onramp to the 405 freeway and oh yeah, why was traffic so dang slow? Because a flipping traffic cop wouldn't get the *blank* out of the way so people could turn the corner even though it was a green light and safe to do so thanks to city busses blocking the intersection. We finally got home around 8pm and I was drained. Of course dd took a 2 hour nap or so on the way home and was ready to party till midnight when we finally got to bed. I got to sleep till like 11am but today I am exhausted, my eyes feel like sand paper and I just want to sleep. I have no energy and I am feeling like I am so ready for the pregnancy to be OVER and I've got at least 6 weeks to go minimum, I feel like calling up the OB and saying schedule me for a repeat c/s on May 24 which is the day I hit 37 weeks just so I know there's an end in sight and I won't be stuck pregnant for another 11 weeks if I'm cursed enough to go to 42 weeks. I won't of course but today I just want a decent meal which I'm to exhausted to cook and some sleep! dd is bouncing off the walls and has been since she got up so even laying down and resting is not an option for fear she will do something dangerous in this kind of mood. oh yeah, I feel like I'm getting sick so my body hurts, I have a headache, sandpaper for eyes, short of breath and just plain exhausted and I don't know what this kid is doing in me but I wish she'd stop because it hurts! ugh, tomorrow I get to go see the peri which is going to be great fun, I missed my last appt 2 weeks ago and never got the labs he wanted done because he insists they only be done at the hospital there and considering the fact that its an hour drive each way, then I spend 2-3 hours just waiting to be seen (did I mention the fact it takes half an hour to find a dang parking spot and its never near the clinic) then another hour with him with half the time residents running around looking for your labs wasting time because you didn't get them done yet but they don't tell you that's what there looking for. So by now its noon and your appt was at 8am and your just getting the hell out of there and now they want you to go to the lab where you will spend another 1-2 hours and your babysitter (grandma) is getting crabby as heck calling and wanting to know when your going to be home because a Dr appt should not be taking this long so you have to skip the lab because she threatens not to watch your child next time (which would mean a really hellish visit) and you still have an hour drive home and desperately need to eat because you haven't eaten since 6am and your blood sugar is getting dangerously low and your ready to rip someone's head off so you eat and go home and by then its like 3pm and your entire day has been shot by a single Dr appt!
