My biggest one is that I don't have a car! Provided, I don't have a license either, but still. There's a bunch of shopping I want to get done since I'm on Spring Break this week. I need to get this place super organized and downsized (haha, shopping so I can downsize) and I can't really do that when I have no vehicle. All I can do is clean and make lists of stuff to get for tomorrow and Wednesday.
I am so tired! It's bad enough when I'm up every 90 minutes to pee and change positions at night, but now I can't even fall asleep. It took me 5 hours to fall asleep last night, which means I got 3 hours of sleep. The closer the date of my inducement gets, the more I have going through my head constantly. And LO is getting so strong. He actually wakes me up in the middle of the night with his rolling and moving. I can barely function at work today and am considering leaving work early to go home to sleep. I hate to take more time off when I already take time off for weekly visits now. And the sciatic nerve pain....on a good day I have to get up every hour or so from my desk to try to stretch it out. At it's worse, I am getting up every 20 minutes. And it's starting when I am driving now too. I have 40 minute commute and it's in my right leg. I wish I could convince my OB to put me on bed rest so I can sleep throughout the day as I can and avoid driving with sciatic nerve zingers running through my right leg.

I am thrilled to have started my new part time job. It is a new locations, so they have 300 of us going through training right now, and we are scheduled for 40 hours this week. After being off work for the last 2 1/2 months it is hard to have to go for a full day, and I can't just pee, eat, or nap as I please. Really my only moan is that the conference chairs we are using are so uncomfortable that my poor pelvis is in a massive amount of pain. My waddle gets worse by the end of the day. Yesterday I almost fell down when I stood up to leave at the end of the day, due to the intense pain in my left pelvic-spine joint (it doesn't shoot down my leg, just stays in that one spot, so I am not sure if it is considered sciatic).
I am tired and grumpy and sick of being tired and grumpy I was doing so well up until the past week but apparently my days of having energy and feeling good are over. Unfortunately I still have a huge list of things to do including spending time with a very active 5 year-old.
I took a PTO day since I had to be open to any ultrasound appointment that the hospital had, and I had a dentist appointment scheduled. Hospital got me in early for the u/s, but then I found out that apparently I never had a dentist appointment, despite scheduling it weeks ago. Initially I was pissed off b/c I wasted a 1/2 a day of PTO. Now I'm over it b/c I ended up getting a ton of painting done and vacuumed out the cars!
I'm tired My body has recently decided that I need to wake up at least 5 times a night and it's making me grouchy. I have the strongest nesting urges, but can't clean much at a time because I get nasty BH & DF doesn't want to help clean and organize.
I'm over waking up all night for a million different things. I feel like I'm doing a sh!tty job at work but I am just too **** tired, sore and just meh to run around doing it all. There's nothing wrong in particular but for the last few days I've just been... off. It's about all I can do to just stand in the yard. I do the rest but I have nothing left by the middle of the day and run on pixie dust. I'm so ready for home a few hours in.
I took my class on a field trip yesterday to a botanical garden. I have severe allergies and I'm in my third trimester. What was I thinking?! I had to take benedryl so by the end of the day I was a walking zombie. I had to take a long nap when I got home.
