Uuuugh. So, during my three pregnancies I've been pretty miserable but never quite experienced this...I guess I caught a stomach bug over the weekend and it's been causing lots of cramping, pain, and contractions. I finally decided I had been wavering for days on whether or not I needed to go in so I wasn't going to feel okay until I did. Well, that was a waste of time. I'm having some contractions but they're mild and not doing anything. I didn't even get an ultrasound! I'm so glad at 34 weeks I'm not in real labor. I'm not glad that I'm already having really uncomfortable contractions though! But, here's the kicker- they tell me I'm probably dehydrated but did not give me fluids. I just weighed myself and I'm up 3 lbs from the weekend!!!! So, I've had a stomach bug since Saturday (and I'll tell ya it's not a bug I've ever had because I just feel crampy/pain/occasional nausea but still able to eat/needing to eat to keep heartburn at bay), I've got pretty consistent increased loose stools but not quite like in the bathroom all day diarrhea (tmi gross I know), and I'm still gaining weight at an unacceptable rate- *** gives???

I dunno- I'm just frustrated. As of that weighing, I'm up another 8 lbs in 3 weeks. That's following a 9 lb gain over 6 weeks and an 11 lb gain over 5. If there was a time though that I would back off on the weight gain- you'd think it would be when I had had a stomach bug for 4 days!!!! I feel like I'm an overfilled balloon on the verge of exploding!!!!! Make it all end! I've been complaining *so* much on the April board so I thought I'd spread the wealth I'm very grateful that I'm not on labor at 34 weeks, but otherwise, I'm just royally pissed off about this crappy, awful, miserable pregnancy! I know it could be ten times worse and I should be grateful that it's mostly petty things that are driving me batty but...come on- let me catch a freaking break!!!

Ugh that blows!! Being that sick is no fun,especially when pregnant! So weird about your weight gain! I had a pretty big weight gain jump too though and it came out of nowhere...I hadn't changed my diet at all and I was up like 8lbs between appts so I feel your pain.

If it makes you feel better, I have gained weight like crazy too. I saw a picture of myself a friend took while we had our kids at a museum a few days ago and it was hard to take in. Ugh! After the baby comes, it will be healthy eating and hopefully pound dropping like crazy. Just know, you're not alone!

It would be one thing if it was one big gain but it's like constant!! And I've swelled up really bad in the last week or so. I'm officially on a low sodium diet which really I should have been doing anyway. I have not been eating like my normal self this pregnancy at all. If I can drop a few of the pounds from healthy eating and manage not to gain more at this point- I think I'll be in a better place overall post partum. If I gain another 15 lbs like I'm on track to.... It will be rough.

On the bright side- I think my stomach cramping may be improving as of this morning. Remind me to stick to my guns on not being checked until 38 weeks and/or real labor though because I swear that kicked my contractions up a notch and made it even harder to sleep!!

I'm glad baby is good and not going anywhere. But I'm sorry you have been sick, that is not fun.. Hope those contractions stay away so your last few weeks aren't to horrible.
