Re: what is making you uncomfortable?

  • So far it's just the heat and the fact that I get short of breath more often than I would like to.  I'm not looking forward to possibly getting swollen feet again either!

  • I would say finger pain due to swelling. It is the worst in the night/when I first wake up. Luckily it is tolerable but more of an aggravation. Sleeping isnt awful but turning often makes it slightly uncomfortable for a good nights sleep.

  • Oh boy... which end of the list do you want me to start at? 

    At the moment, BH contractions are driving me nuts. I always have a ton of them at night, especially on days when DH works and I have to carry around my 35 lb 2 year old half the day. Seriously, they're boarderline timeable. Lovely. 

    Shaving sucks.

    Sleeping sucks.

    The heat REALLY sucks.

    I can still put shoes and socks on, but it's not pretty.

    DH is definitely going to have to paint my toe nails from now on if he wants them to be pretty.

  • Im not even sure I am technically in the third tri yet, but my hips are really starting to ache! Im trying to walk more to loosen them up, because I know it is only going to get worse!

  • I second the HEARTBURN!  I've been eating tums like it's my job.  Also, it's like my body flipped a switch and I have to pee all the time... guess there just isn't room left in there.  I never used to wake up to pee and now I get up almost like clockwork at 3:30am.

    The problem may very well be that your hips are too lose already. Damn relaxin!

    Oh, and I forgot to add heartburn to my list. TOTALLY. It's killing me this time around.

  • Definately the heat, lack of sleep and feeling big/swollen/uncomfortable in my body...

    Thankfully, the heat has broken here in NorCal so I'm feeling much better today!!!  =)

  • I could go on and on, but the biggest one lately is peeing. I swear I am normally like a camel, but with this pregnancy I feel like I have to pee a lot. The problem is, when I pee, there is like nothing coming out. Then 2 minutes later it feels like I have to go again.....barely anything again. It is so annoying. I just ignore it now!

  • I gave up on shaving a long time ago but mainly cause my legs don't need it (preggo perk!). Getting in and out of my car is really difficult for me, esp if I just worked a long day.
  • for me its the fact that i can never get comfortable at night and just when i am about to drift off i have to go pee. and the heat! the heat index was up to 114 degrees today. no fun at all...
  • Having to constantly drink water to stay hydrated in miserable Florida heat, but then getting heartburn from the water and having to pee constantly.  The sciatic nerve pains, constant back aches, baby's painful squirmies, and my miserable hips at night that don't let me sleep.

  • Walking. haha  I have pinched a nerve associated with the area on the inside of my groin, so I have to walk like a zombie... Place left foot ahead, drag right foot behind. Place arms out in front, "uhnngggg, brainsss."

    Aside from that, I also have a pubic symphisis that likes to shift around painfully, so night time is a night mare. I actually made DH drag me by my feet to get me to the side of the bed this morning o.O  Then he dropped my feet, which was painful... Eek!

    Cervical punches are also a huge pain! So damn uncomfortable!!

    I guess I'm lucky, though, because my belly isn't terribly big so I'm not short of breath, though I can't put socks on very easily. Sandle love <3

  • Lets see....  tiredness, the heat, heartburn, can't breathe, generally feeling large and uncomfortable from that, can't get comfortable sitting, standing, or laying down, and joint pain, especially my wrists. Im a mess.

  • The heat and humidity!  Ugh, our AC cannot keep up with how hot it is.
  • heartburn, LO kicking me in the ribs, and being tired all the time. also i hate that hormones make me more emotional, so i cry more now than ever before.
  • Random feelings of faintness...nothing like being in public and feeling like you're about to hit the floor :/

  • My super swollen feet and ankles. They hurt so bad and never really go down no matter what I do! DH snapped this pic at the doctors office last week:

    Pretty distgusting huh!!

    Mine look about the same.  They have for about 2 months.  I also have swelling in my calves up to my knees and if I'm on my feet too there is no shape to my legs whatsoever.  BH in the middle of the night, but they are getting things started so I'm almost thankful for them.  The heartburn is horrible.  If I sit too long my back hurts, so relaxing and propping up my feet only lasts so long.  But in the end, it's all worth it. :)

  • Heartburn associated with vomiting (I can barely bend over the toilet anymore... tmi I know, but oh well).

    The heat. Down here in Houston it is getting ridiculous. And then having to drink crazy amounts of water (it really does wonders on making the BHC's stop!). But seriously I am having the hardest time drink 4 Liters of water a day.

    Finally... Sleep! The process of flipping over and getting comfortable combined with having to get up to pee and positioning myself in a way to alleviate some reflux pains. But I am starting to get the hang of it- so hopefully I can still get some quality rest before our Little Man arrives.

  • Not being able to sleep due to so much pressure on my back.  Even with two body pillows, I am never comfortable.  Also, when your baby drops, there is a lot of pressure everywhere you walk.

  • Well let's see...

    Pee'ing allllllll the time. Just when I go, and leave the bathroom, I feel like I have to pee again. This includes night time when I'm trying to sleep. Which leads me to...

    Sleep!!!!!! How freaking hard can it be?? The first two trimesters I slept like a log. Which actually was a nice reprieve from my pre-pregnancy sleep, when I needed a sleeping pill every night for more than 4 hours of sleep. But now, I lay there wide awake for at least an hour, while DH snores away as soon as his head hits the pillow. When I need to turn over, it's a process that sometimes includes waking my husband up for help. It's painful and uncomfortable and sometimes I just can't get it done. Then I have to get up and potty, usually 3-4 times a night. Sigh.

    My right thumb is freaking killing me. I don't get it! Why just one thumb? I can't even bend it most of the time. I can't grip a pen to sign my name or do anything else. It's so weird.

    GD is kicking my butt. Breakfast is the worst- if I have to keep eating eggs every morning for the next 9 weeks I am afraid I will start gagging and throwing up. :( It's such a strict meal for me (as is the case for many other GD sufferers) and historically it's been my "comfort" meal- cereal and milk. Those are out for me and I am already sick of eggs, toast, and peanut butter. Blah.

    Ok I think that's enough for today. LOL

    I agree the heat is terrible! Everyone else around me will be chilly in the AC and I'm sweating. 

    The hip pain at night, swollen feet/ankles, and the fact that my baby is breech and her head constantly crushes my ribs are all not fun either. I definately can't bend over far enough to put on socks anymore.

  • Heartburn! It's terrible, especially at night. My back and legs are sore, they ache the most right before I go to bed and it's so annoying and uncomfortable that it makes it hard to sleep. When I do get to sleep I have to get up to pee or take tums. So, this is mainly it along with the heat that makes me a little nautious. K, finished whining. :)
