Just a few days from term and I'm feeling sorry for everyone around me. I'm uncomfortable, my coochie hurts, the heartburn is killing me and I'm just super emotional. I feel like a big ol whiny butt! And TMI but the lack of sex is making me feel more disconnected from DH. I miss the intimacy. And knowing its going to be a while after BB gets here makes it worse. The problem is my pelvic area hurts. And I'm sure he will think I am just trying to kick start labor if I tried despite the discomfort.
Basically I'm just a big ol ball of whiny and emotional and feel like I could cry all the time for no real reason at all.

I am right there with you. I am not having many pelvic pains yet, but I am whiney all the same. My BB is always on a nerve, I am not sleeping well, not having sex, too tired where I am going to bed at 8pm every night, but then tossing and turning most of the night, having way too much acid reflux and feeling a tad sick to my stomach every time I eat. I have no real signs that she is even close to coming and I am just tired of feeling so big and tired.

I am right there with ya Sista.

Oh the joys of pregnancy. This pelvic pain is killing me. I hate complaining but it really sucks. I'm right there with you ladies. I seriously feel like doing this right now especially when she's using me as her personal trampoline.

I told DH I miss the closeness and intimacy and he says just remember its worth it when we get to hold BB in our arms. I know that's true and I'm so lucky to have a husband that responds like that instead of complaining about not "getting any" but it honestly didn't help me feel better. I guess nothing he says would if that didn't.

Its a good thing I'm at work or I would probably just cry instead of trying to hold it together.

First of all, bless his heart. He's right, and it's kind of him to respond that way.

I know it's not the same, but have you tried having a really good cuddle, or a back rub, or anything on the list of stuff your high school health teacher tells you to do so that you don't have actual sex (even though it all just kind of revs a teenager up and makes not having sex harder)? Sometimes the other intimacies can be really nice, too.

I'm a wreck, too. I'm trying to hold it in, but it's a lot of work not to lose it. I hope you can find something calming and connecting you to DH.

Amen, to the snuggling. Work has had Dh away most evenings but last night I got a foot/back rub and we passed out all snuggled up and I felt very at ease and taken care of. Anyways, these pains are no doubt way worse this time and trying to keep it all together in front of him and Madison is taking a toll. I usually have a good cry when they leave in the morning and fall back asleep. I am not sure how you and the other ladies are still working.

the 19th is my last day, unless she comes before then. When we first got pregnant I said I didn't want to rush it, I wanted to enjoy every second because its the last time I will be pregnant. Now.....I'm looking for signs and so ready to be done!

Yup, right there with ya. Last night after dinner, we were sitting on the couch, and I talked AT DH for about an hour complaining about how I felt. Not really complaining, but just explaining to him how I feel. He just sat and listened. Poor thing.

Ugh girl i hear ya! I'm seriously having my own pity party over here this week - great example the rambling post i just created about work!

Luckily i'm not having the pains to the extent you are - you're a couple weeks ahead of me so we'll see!! But i'm just all around feeling stressed and crappy about myself.

I'm in no mood for sex, but i seriously think my husband had pity sex with me two nights ago because i was so down on myself. I was getting ready for bed and was in the bathroom with just undies on when he came upstairs. For the first time ever i slammed the door on him because i didn't want him seeing me. He did do a good job of telling me and making me feel beautiful, but i still feel crappy about myself. It's probably the exhaustion and hormones really.

But really, that's what it is - i miss the intimacy with my husband and i think not getting that makes me feel even crappier about myself and lonely.

it does make you feel lonely. DH and I cuddle and stuff but its just not the same. I love him for not wanting to make me uncomfortable but at the same time want to feel like he still wants me while I look like the goodyear blimp in the midsection.

I'm just overall cranky! Poor DH has to deal with snippy me whenever I get my hormonal moments (which are coming more frequently now) and I just sit there and cry on a whim! I had a bad doc appt yesterday where I really didn't like the doc and I ended up taking it out on DH. Then I can't sleep well so I don't feel like doing anything and I feel bad about doing nothing and I become a crying mess! I don't have the pain associated with baby getting big (because Parker just won't stop being stubborn and grow a few pounds...yes I am blaming our baby lol), but my emotional roller coaster sure is in full swing!

Michelle it's like you wrote that post for me. I am the same way (but not even full term lol). I feel just in a state of anxiety panic. I am emotional, I almost don't want to work in fear of not having it in check, I'm overwhelmed, and I just feel like crap. I'm nauseous, it's hard to eat normal meals, acid reflux is my nemisis, I don't sleep well, my coochie kills, and my hips feel like they are going to fall off. I am just so over it. And I hate to say this because I know this little girl isn't doing it intentionally, but it's really wearing me down.

I didn't even think about sex. We haven't done it in weeks :/ I feel like a bad wife but I hurt so bad and how can I think about sex when I feel like I'm breaking bones down there and I have acid reflux? Maybe I should try harder because I agree, there is something missing from the marriage without that intimacy and it might help, but at the same time, I don't want to attempt at all.

Gah
