So Sunday I had contractions just about all day, nothing steady enough to make me go in, but they lasted for over 12 hours, sometimes 5 min apart, sometimes 20 min apart and were strong enough to take my breath away and make me stop every time they came. Basically all they managed to do was leave me exhausted and grumpy.
Yesterday I was still tired and just didn't feel well, I felt like I was carrying a sack of bricks around with me everywhere I went, it was hard to walk, hard to breath and I had to put forth way too much effort into everything I did. But it was one of the only days my Mom could come over and take me shopping to get the rest of the baby stuff I needed. We drove all over the city and went to a lot of stores but finally found a dresser I liked in my price range and a few other smaller things that I still needed. I came home and was in bed by 8pm last night. Not that it did me any good, I watched every single hour go by, I think I slept for 2 hours total last night.
Needless to say I'm exhausted today, I got up this morning and promptly started throwing up, I wanted nothing more than a nap this afternoon. Of course that didn't happen. I got a call from DD1's school, her rash, which I thought was just heat rash is worse and she's scratched it so bad it's bleeding, I'd better pick her up and take her in to see someone. Nothing makes me feel like a bad mother more than having the school call me to tell me to take my daughter to the doctor! Found out from the dr that my DD is allergic to the cream I was putting on her rash and thats why it was getting worse not better. Great! I am a bad mother! Why didn't I notice that and take her in without having to be told to?
Fast forward to this evening, I go upstairs to bath the girls for bed, there is water all over the bathroom floor, I mean it's flooded! The toilet is over flowing and there is crap everywhere! My 4 year old had an accident and in trying to clean herself up, used an entire package of baby wipes then tried to flush them! Then she didn't tell me about it! This is not what I needed! I'm way too tired for my own good, DH is of course at work and I still don't feel good.
I know this is long, but I needed to get it out, I'm not a happy mommy right now.
