The One with all the complaining

Don’t say I didn’t warn you…

Do you find that when people ask you how you are doing or how you are feeling, you rarely speak the truth. This goes for when I am not obviously pregnant as well.

I am feeling crappy. Miserable, really. Usually I just tell people that, “Other than being tired, I feel okay.” It’s not true. Do not believe the lie.
This last leg of my last pregnancy, well… it just down right sucks. I am tired and cranky. I can’t bend over to tie up shoes, so I wear slip ons (whether or not they look okay with my outfit). I am barely fitting into my winter jacket now. I wobble when I walk. My stomach has some serious round ligament pain that I feel every time I try to change positions. Or if I get up too fast. Or sneeze. Or cough. It isn’t comfortable to rock Davilyn in the rocking chair. I can’t imagine that it is for her either. She mostly just lays across my bump, but her weight on my belly is too much. It has decreased our snuggle time at night before bed… thankfully she has adjusted and I can lay her down awake and leave the room.
My hips are sore (and so is my, err… crotch). Often times when the baby moves, it actually hurts. She is sitting Frank Breach… could this be why it is painful? With both Piper and Davilyn they were head down throughout most of my pregnancies. Instead of getting a foot in the rib, I am getting a whole head. She is bouncing on my bladder and that makes me visit the bathroom almost every hour through out the night.
My back aches. It gets worse through the night and by morning I am in so much pain that I have to get out of bed. Even though I am still so very tired, I would rather stay in bed and sleep. Or try to sleep. Toss and turn, really.
My blood sugars are not controlled well right now. They aren’t dangerously high or dangerously low, but my head never feels quite right. Too much insulin causes me to have lows… not enough and my sugars are high after eating.
I’m feeling crappy. Just crappy. I am hoping the next few weeks go by fast. I don’t want to wish away the tail end of this pregnancy, since it is my last. But I am so done. In a few days I will be 34 weeks. Three weeks ago, I never thought I would be this far. Just a few more weeks.
I think I can, I think I can…

Rumour,you can do it! I know how hard the last few weeks can be physically, but every week closer to term brings you less closer to the NICU! Yeah, glad you're still pregnant and hanging in there!

I also think this is God's way of tricking moms into thinking that getting up every 3 hours to feed is better than tossing and turning non stop.
