I figure it's about time I whine. Until maybe 3 days ago I was perfectly fine with the baby staying in for as long as it wants. Now I think I am ready for the thing to move out!
My back gets so tired I can barely stand long enough to do the dishes. I can't find a way to sit comfortably or read in bed unless I am on my side with the belly propped up. It has also started to get more painful again.
I am peeing every 1-2 hours at night even though I try to hydrate myself all day and then stop drinking much past 8- I'm sure I pee twice as much at night as during the day!
I have some sort of tendonitis that has come up in my wrist(s) and I think it was originally from using my hands to heave myself into/out of bed/sofa off of toilet and while my left has improved a lot since I've started to be careful of them it's been about 3 weeks and my right wrist is still very sore if I do something like pick up a bowl of cereal, turn a doorknob or try to wipe after using the toilet (like I could even reach anyways!). I have been icing it and wearing a brace but it's still in pain! I haven't been able to go back to yoga for weeks now. I sure hope that it's just some sort of pregnancy inflammation that goes away the second the baby is born I can't imagine having to hold a baby with this wrist!
I am scared that if I keep baby in too long my blood pressure will go up and I will lose my home birth (which is almost all lined up but for the MW visit on Friday) and be sent to an OB.
My Grandma (whom I am quite close to and one of her primary caregivers) fell and broke her hip over a week ago. Nobody wants me to go visit her in the hospital because of the germs but while I am sort of cherishing the break I am also feeling very guilty. Not that she really remembers who visits her when. I think I'd be too stressed out to visit her though because apparently her dementia has increased greatly since the break- I hope this is only a temporary thing because I've had to help her move 3 times since January and if she's gone this crazy we will have to move her as she'll need more assistance than she's getting. I am also scared much of the time that she's going to die from something (pneumonia, infection) and I will not get to see her again. If it's her time it's her time but I am still not sure how I feel within myself if I don't get to say good bye. My mother is also trying to get her house ready to sell and now being the only caregiver for my Gma and I feel a bit guilty about both the fact that I am not helping my mother with her house or with my grandma.
I could go on now that I've started but really, why bother! That seems like plenty of whining to me
