Confessions of a Pregnant Lady<br><br>
I saw this on another due date club and boy is this little exercise ever cathartic! Post your 'confessions' and feel better knowing that we all make mistakes!<br><br><br>
-I am being laz-y about packing my house up, and we are moving in ONE week.<br>
-I eat turkey and cheese sandwhichs at least once a day everyday.. And they are delicious!!<br>
-I drank two cans of coke today!!<br>
-I think I need bigger bras again and I'm in denial.<br>
-I tell my DH EVERYDAY how much I hate being pregnant.<br>
-I cuss at my DH at night when I'm sitting on the toliet for the 10th time and he's sleeping like an angel.<br>
-I am tired of washing and folding baby clothes.<br>
-I'm scared I'll end up throwing my mother and MIL out of the delivery room when I'm in labor.<br>
-I have smoked since I found out I was pregnant even though I know it's terrible for my baby.<br>
-I have looked online of ways to make myself go into labor.<br><br>
I'm terrible!! I know!! What about you guys?<br><br>
Any terrible confessions you wanna make??

Oh I'm game...<br><br>
1) I secretly desire drinking a couple of beers every night and the only thing that keeps me from drinking them is that my dh would not approve and if I were "out" I'd feel guilty doing it in public.<br><br>
2) I'm jealous every time I come out of my building and see the students smoking in between their classes (I teach/work at a University and it's the only time I ever smoke - when I'm at work).<br><br>
3) I sit on my butt and watch TV or surf the net instead of doing the dishes or folding laundry b/c I know if I leave it long enough, dh will do it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"><br><br>
4) I sit on my butt and surf the net instead of reading to my girls b/c reading a story actually makes me out of breath.<br><br>
5) I haven't used the stairs in my building (except to go DOWN) in at least 3 months.<br><br>
6) I want to slap every single person who asks me "How are you feeling?" (you don't give a crap when I'm not pg - why ask me now!?!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
7) I want to slap every person who says "I bet you're ready to be done, huh?" or some other such comment which means they're really saying "boy - you sure are fat - I hope you don't explode!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
8) I have weighed myself even though I said I wouldn't...and I weigh a lot!<br><br>
9) I can't wait to be done with work, but we really need the money so I should be happy to have it.<br><br>
10) What I really want is to just take one long nap and wake up when labor starts...even if that means I nap for the next 3 weeks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Confessions...I can get behind that idea. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
-Cookies. DH is a big baker and makes the best chocolate chocolate chip cookies imaginable. The latest batch also has M&Ms. They don't last very long.<br><br>
-I'm incredibly grouchy.<br><br>
-I harbor a secret wish to go into labor any old time now, since it's 37 weeks today. I get very cranky when people try to "reason" me out of this wish by saying I'm more likely to go at 41 or whatever, bla bla bla.

1) I'm now a day more pregnant than I've ever been (#1 was 38 weeks on the nose, and over 8lb).<br>
2) DH told me I couldn't have the baby until midnight yesterday because he wants another Gemini. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
3) My younger sister, whom I invited to attend the birth, had a ten-day business trip that ended at midnight last night...she called me from the airport across the country to tell me that I had to wait until tonight at the earliest, and no later than the weekend (because she's going to the beach). The other option she offered me was to wait until after my due date. HAH.<br>
4) Road rage. The world is full of stupid people. Bite tongue.<br>
5) My belly button can't take much more of this...I got one (1) stretch mark last time, down low where nobody could see it. Now I have two <i>over</i> my belly button. No wonder DS thinks that's where the baby comes out.<br>
6) A half-gallon of Edy's ice cream lasts me three trips to the freezer. At least it's the Edy's light...<br>
7) I'm not nesting - my mom is. She and my father came over a couple of weeks ago and spent about twelve hours over three days cleaning our basement. She went to the house this morning while I was at work (did I mention that I'm still working?) and cleaned up DS's room and the stairs. We have a walk-up attic, and the steps behind the baby gate turn into a dumping ground if I'm not careful, and if I were careful, I wouldn't be pregnant, now, would I?<br>
8) The pack'n'play and the baby seat just came down out of the attic an hour ago. I washed the covers for the car seat and stroller. Aren't you proud of me?<br>
9) I cannot call anyone I know. If it's a relative, I get a breathless "Did your water break?" and if it's a coworker, I get "Haven't you had that baby yet?" NO NO NO. When you hear relieved, hysterical weeping on the other end of the line, your answer will be "yes."<br><br>
eta: I'm carrying a bath towel around with me, starting today. And I put the *&%@# plastic sheet on our mattress yesterday. It's under the mattress pad, but it still feels yucky.

Cool thread!<br><br>
1) I eat out at least three times a week, because I don't want to cook.<br><br>
2) I have smoked since finding out the news... more than once.<br><br>
3) The only reason I haven't smoked more is because I'm embarassed to buy cigs while so obviously with child.<br><br>
4) My lactose sensitivity doesn't stand a chance against cravings for chocolate milk and Blizzards.<br><br>
5) I stopped talking to most of my friends because I don't want them to be around to influence my son.<br><br>
6) I sometimes wear the same three pair of pants for two weeks before washing them.<br><br>
7) I ask people if they think I look fat because the look of fear they get on their faces makes me laugh.<br><br>
8) I am jealous of pg women w/ a DH or SO.<br><br>
9) I have a deep seated hatred of pg women who asked extremely stupid questions (on another board).<br><br>
10) My desire to kill people during my commute had nothing to do w/ pg hormones. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br>
11) I'm terribly afraid that I'll be the worst mother in the world, if he ends up being a Cancer.<br><br>
12) I don't want my extended family to have a lot of influence on my son.<br><br>
13) I don't think that putting together the stroller and carseat was THAT difficult.

Oooh, this looks like fun!<br><br>
1) X-treme Laziness is my sport of choice. I haven't exercised in months and don't intend on it.<br><br>
2) Soda. I'm not a big soda-drinker, but for some reason during pregnancy...I don't know.<br><br>
3) I still drink wine, beer too, a couple maybe once or twice a week.<br><br>
4) I'm not taking the sugar-water/take your blood test, only because I don't want to, and not for some anti-medical reason.<br><br>
5) I'm psycho and yell at DH on an almost-daily basis.<br><br>
6) I trick DH into doing chores that he doesn't know I can do.<br><br>
7) I also fear having a Cancer baby, and am crossing my fingers for an early delivery so I can have a Gemini. (I'm and Aquarius, so...)<br><br>
8) SO, SO sick of, "Are you due any day now?" and the follow-up, "Is it twins?"<br><br>
9) I could sleep all day long.

Aquarius? Me, too. And water signs kind of freak me out.

11) I want to slap the people who ask if I'm having twins, not once but twice...and step on their toes as hard as I can...especially when they are overweight and not even pregnant...then I also want to say (after I slap them and squish their toes) "so I'm gestating another person inside of me and yes, a little overweight - what's YOUR excuse?!?!?"<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

Count me in:<br><br>
1. I eat more ice cream then any person should. Pregnant or not.<br><br>
2. I'm depressed with how much weight and how swollen I am. I hate any photos that include my face or legs. I wanted to do professional pregnancy photos with this babe but now I feel like I look so bloated in the face that I'm thinking I don't want to remember this look anymore. I'm torn on what to do and I'm also afraid I'll regret it if I don't take professional photos but I'll probably hate them if I do. Ugh. Feels like a no win situation for me. I have only one pair of shoes that I can wear. Flip flops. My feet have outgrown all the other 20 pairs of shoes I own. I can't justify spending money on new shoes that will only fit for a short time. Same with clothing. I'm running out of clothing to wear once again.. and well... She's almost here and I can't justify buying more clothing either. Depressing!<br><br>
3. I've been hoping she comes early just as everyone keeps on telling me.. but I know deep down she probably won't. I have no patience waiting for her to come. I want to see her, smell her, count her fingers and toes. See who she looks like and get to know her. I secretly wish I could have another Ultrasound just so I could see her again.<br><br>
4. I'm in more pain than I say I am most of the time. I don't want people to worry about how I feel anymore. It's getting old answering the same questions over and over. I don't want people to feel sorry for me because I'm excited to be having this girl even if I'm in the most pain I've ever been in!<br><br>
5. I wear the same clothes over and over a few times before washing them.<br><br>
6. I've invited my SIL, MIL, and Parents to the labor. I was excited to share this with them in the beginning.. Now I'm starting to wonder if inviting them was the right thing since I now feel like I just want to share this with my husband and son.<br><br>
7. I get annoyed at my husband when he complains about his back and how he's not able to sleep. Then I feel bad that I'm annoyed at him.<br><br>
8. I feel like my body is no longer mine. Babe has taken it over, water and weight have taken it over, everyone including strangers think they can touch me when ever they want. Ugh.<br><br>
9. Baby's room is still not fully put together. Matter fact, It's a mess.<br><br>
10. Still have not washed all the clothing we got for her, and the bedding...<br>
Overwhelmed at the thought of it. She's already got tons of clothing!<br><br>
11. I can't stand clutter.. I've been like this for years and having all this new baby stuff is overwhelming.<br><br>
12. I get annoyed with FIL when he says things like "Hurry up and have this girl so I can take the boys on a fishing trip/camping trip for a weekend or week". (The boys: My son and Husband) Ahh no. My boys will not be leaving me when I have this babe! Nothing like wanting to make me insane!<br><br>
13. I secretly dislike that my husband has taken on more hours at work for the next couple of weeks. I want him near me at all times although I know he needs to work and make money. I don't like to be left alone all of the sudden.<br><br>
14. I wish I could have a Margarita.

Just wanted to respond to this. First: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2"> I SO hear you.<br><br>
Second: I have two thoughts on photos of me pg. On one hand, I always feel better looking at them after the fact b/c if I feel bad about the way I look/my weight, I can look at them and say..."at least I'm not THAT fat." <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> The other thing is a professional is going to be able to play with angles and light and should be able to take some photos that will not show a double chin or a bloated face or at least make it less so. You might be pleasantly surprised!<br><br>
Third: You're lucky in that it sounds like your feet go back to their normal size. I was a 7 1/2 or 8 before I had my first. An 8 1/2 after her. A 9 after dd2. A 9 1/2 after dd3. I'm hoping I don't make a size 10 this time around...we'll see...<br><br>
Anyway - just had to say I'm right there with you mama!

1) I have a Dr. Pepper addiction.<br>
2) I think I've managed to get myself out of washing dishes for at least two weeks now.<br>
3) I think I'm in complete denial that I'm about to be a mother of TWO children. It's like I psycologically have my fingers plugged in my ears and I'm humming as loud as I can... nope... not me... I'm not going to have another baby any time soon!<br>
4) Because of #3, virtually nothing is done. I've not gotten out any clothes for this poor kid, I have no idea where he's going to sleep. The only thing "done" is his carseat cover is washed.<br>
5) I've not done one single thing the m/w asked me to do as far as getting things ready for the birth.<br>
6) I'm really annoyed that no one is giving me a shower this time around (I had 4 last time). Just because I want the attention and all my other friends have recently had showers for second babies.<br><br>
And to think... this babe could show up any time between now and a little over a month from now. I'm in so much trouble.

12) I've eaten 2 chocolate muffins today and there are two more under my desk that I'm pretty sure are not going to make it home... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I'm also an Aquarius but I actually have a Cancer dd. I was kinda like, "uh oh, a cancer." (Because I used to know a cancer...VERY emotional and all kinds of other stuff) But seriously, she's amazing. I will say sensitive though! FOR SURE! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

4. I only wear 2 different pants now...and my dh's shirts and wear them repeatedly before washing them.<br><br>
5. I chew gum ALOT.<br><br>
6. I secretly wonder if I'm having twins. (One of my mw's thinks I am.)<br><br>
7. I wish I had something to hold my belly up so I didn't have to carry the weight.<br><br>
8. I want to get rid of my dog. (Yes I know...it sounds terrible. And it IS terrible.)<br><br>

Okay, here goes.<br><br>
1. I secretly hate being pregnant. But, damn, I love my babies.<br><br>
2. I was eating at least one whole chocolate bar a day until a week ago when I lost my appetite altogether. One day, I ate a WHOLE BOX of Tofutti Cuties in one sitting.<br><br>
3. I drank Coke, a lot, during that oh-so-vital-to-development first trimester.<br><br>
4. I pass gas, and I blame it on the kids.<br><br>
5. I had a margarita last week! Yum! As an aside, I mainly drank it hoping it would calm my nasty, painful ctxns, but it did nothing to them at all. Ugh.<br><br>
6. I have gained HALF my body weight with this pregnancy.<br><br>
7. My mother promised she would come for a whole week when the baby was born. She downgraded that to "a week in June." Then she downgraded that to 4 days during the second week of June. And she's going to bring my sister, who will have just had surgery and be recovering.<br><br>
8. I'm really a pretty gender-neutral person, but I am soooo glad I am having a girl <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><br><br>
9. Even though I am in a lot of pain and discomfort, I'm not psychologically ready to have the baby yet.<br><br>
10. God, I'm horny.

Yeah, dd is technically a Pisces, but she was born Feb. 19, so I sort of think she's got some Aquarius. Either that, or water signs aren't as scary as I thought. But my friend has a Pisces son and a Cancer daughter and they are a handful, so much emotion.
