Pardon my whining rant

Ohhhhh goodness. Only 2 days until my due date! Thank the Lord for that! Because I honestly don't think I can hold out much longer! I'm sure my three boys are sick and tired of my whining, but hey, if you can't whine when you're 40 weeks pregnant ... when can you??
I even had to leave work early last night. There I was, working at my desk, sweating profusely, when I felt the need to use the restroom...for the 20th time that day. So I casually stood up, took one step, and almost fell over, the pain in my lower back was so intense. Wonderful. With my fingernails digging into my palms, and biting my lip to keep from whimpering, I managed to waddle to the restroom, most gracefully. (yeah!) But by 9 p.m. I was hurting so badly, I decided to check out early.
So when I got home, the plan was to go to bed early and try to get some rest. But did that happen? NOOOO! Because now, at night, when I sleep on my side, my hips hurt like MAD and keep me awake all night. (Who knew that hips could hurt that badly!!) I think MAYBE, I got 2 solid hours of snooze time last night. It was ridiculous. So today, I'm in a snarky mood, sick and tired of being the size of a naval ship, and quite ready to be DONE. I keep thinking of the TV show FRIENDS (one of my all time favorite shows!) and the episodes when Rachel was pregnant and cranky and Pheobe made the comment to someone else .... "Good God man, don't anger it!" Well, that applies to me today, dear readers. I am the "it" that no one in their right mind would want to anger. I am huge, and hurting, and mega cranky.

Pardon my whining rant.

(the photo of the boys was taken last week when I made chocolate chip cookies. They're enjoying their first round of "beaters" together. I remember doing this with my sister as a kid!)

i feel your pain and am so sorry. there's nothing worse....well except maybe labor! :)

will you be induced if you go past your date?

sending good vibes your way!

Yeah, I'm scheduled for a c-section on Monday morning. I hope I make it that long!!! Thanks for the "good vibes"!

Well, if you don't make it to your induction, I can't imagine that labor/delivery is any worse than a c-section! They'll still give you the epidural if you want it. I wonder if they would give you one right now?? :)

Hang in there ... she's almost here!

KatHarrmann said...

Yeah, apparently if I go into labor, they just go ahead and do the c-section immmediately. I kinda hope that happens! It would be weird to not be in labor at all ... ever ... during the whole process!

Hang in there! Nothing worse than being at the end of a pregnancy! I wasn't sleeping very well at the end of Emily's pregnancy, either!

I sooooo remember the hip pain! Not fun! We love your blog and hope all goes well on Monday! I had a c-secion with the twins and I wasn't in labor.. I was just glad when they took them out so I could breath again! God bless!
