Hi! I have been pregnant 15 out of the last 16 1/2 months. I am sick and tired and ready to be done being pregnant! My venting is really random, all of the place peeves I have about...well...everyone. My co-worker, has a 4 year old. She calls in sick at LEAST once a week, and says her son is sick (we get unlimited sick days when it has to do with your child)...or she goes home early, or she is complaining that she does not get any sleep because her 4 yr old woke up once in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. I have called into work sick once 9 months ago when I thought I was going into labor, and then twice since then for double ear infections my baby developed. I am 31 weeks pregnant, and have an almost 9 month old at home, who wakes up a lot still at night, I am uncomfortable, not sleeping, but yet, I am always here at work an hour before her (she gets to come in late to drop her child off at school). Yet, I drive 40 minutes to get to work, while she lives only 10 minutes away, and I am still here at 7:15 a.m. She picks on random things at work because she is controlling, but yet I am still doing everything at work that needs to be done. I cant wait to get away from her again on my Maternity leave, which is only 7 weeks, but still....
My other rant...my mother. She watches my son every Friday and sometimes takes him overnight for me if I really need a good nights sleep. He does not have any teeth yet, but I have slowly been giving him PUFFS to taste/try. She knows this, but then I find out she is letting him try table food and Cherrios. Grrr.
My MIL. Well, before we knew we were pregnant, again, my husband said he wanted everyone in his family to come to our house for Thanksgiving this year. I agreed...and now, there is going to be 8 people coming to our house, staying from Tennesee, and New Orleans for Thanksgiving, plus, I get to cook it all. I am shocked that nobody, besides ME, said anything like 'Hmm, she is going to be 33 weeks pregnant, chasing after her baby, and having 8 guests stay, and she is going to cook for us??...maybe we should grab a hotel!'. NOPE. Not one of them. And the sad part is..my husbands brother and his wife live 5 minutes away from us and the refuse to offer help, or have anyone stay with them, they are just planning on coming over for the food. I am still pretty livid about that, but I hope I can just get through those 5 days. It would be different if my husbands family were really helpful , but they are not, they show up and truly expect to be waited on.
I am having so many resentful feelings towards my two male bosses for letting my coworker leave all the time or not come in. They actually try and make small talk with me about how I am feeling, and I am to the point where I can hardly respond to them.
Bottom line - I dont even feel like I know who I was anymore! My hormones have taken over my body for almost 2 years now when this is done. I am sick of being moody and crabby, I just want these next few months to be done with so I can actually be 'myself' again...if I can find her.!
