Re: What are you NOT looking forward to?

  • I agree with the peeing your pants thing...

    my biggest fear more than what I'm not looking forward to, is bed rest. I have high blood pressure genetically and am on meds for it. Just hoping we can keep it under control throughout the pregnancy.  

    Started TTC January 2012

    I 2nd the bedrest thing.  Terrified of it.  My manager does NOT like people taking time off and I know I have FMLA, but the rest is up to him.  He's been known to deny everything past FMLA time and people lose their jobs.

    During pregnancy I am not looking forward to Braxton hicks, mine started at 19 weeks last time and by 33 weeks I was on moderate bed rest. They say they are stronger and start earlier with subsequent pregnancies, I can't imagine!
    After baby I am not looking forward to no sleep lol and figuring out breast feeding. I hope it goes easier this time.

  • Peeing my pants for sure. Also, hear that it can continue to be a prob post birth. Eek!

    Another thing: any kind of sleep interference. I get mean if I don't sleep well.
  • As a ftm I'm afraid of the unkown. I'm also dreading my commute to school in the later months of pregnancy. An hour with no traffic can easily turn into two and a half with construction. I don't want to be stuck behind the wheel and super uncomfortable.

  • Make sure you are doing kegels regularly to help avoid peeing yourself. It is so important to keep our pelvic muscles strengthen before, during and after pregnancy.

    I am not looking forward to
    PUPPS. I had a major breakout last time around the last 3 weeks. It was horrible, worse than labor and I had a 32 hr med free labor. There is no guarantee that I will get it again but I am not looking forward to the possibility.

    The drive isn't bad when ku, but when you take longer drive it can cause more Braxton hicks. James always kept still while I was driving, but was active when I got out of the car.

  • I'm a btdt mom...i am so not looking forward to swollen ankles! It was soo bad with DD that I could barely walk!

    But ibdi have a hilarious story to relate. I have a friend who has always been a sleepwalker. When she was about 8 months or so, she slept-walked her self into the living room and took a pee on her DHs lazyboy!  Payback! :-D

    I agree with everyone and peeing! Every sneeze is a guessing game if their will be pee or not. 

    I have a love hate relationship with pumping at work. I love that I get some moments of peace and quiet during the day (I teach middle school). But I hate missing lunch with everyone. In the end though its totally worth it knowing that I will be giving my baby the best nutrition possible.

  • I'm not looking forward to GD. Not only did the diet suck, but the insulin sucked and the stress sucked.

    Also not looking forward to constantly waking up to pee in the middle of the night and then not being able to go back to sleep.

  • Not looking forward to morning sickness, not being able to bend over to tie my shoes or paint my toenails, shaving my hooha blindly, and along down the road sleep deprivation with a newborn AND an almost 3 year old.

  • I'm already peeing 3-5 times a night... so can't wait for that to get worse :(

    I'll agree with the peeing your pants thing... doesn't sound fun!!!

    Also, the fear of the unknown... right now I'm just afraid of not hearing the HB after all these stories of missed miscarriages I have seen on TB..

  • Sleeping at the end of the third tri and attempting to roll your belly over when you want to switch sides. Then attempting to fall back to sleep and realizing you have to pee so you get up anyway.

  • Birth! I think about it everyday!! I had a c-section so I am thinking that will be my path again but vaginal birth horrifies me. Also the thought of not being able to pick up DD for 6 weeks after birth breaks my heart

    I'm not looking forward to the day I have to stop running. It's my passion, and the thought of eventually stopping it sucks.

    I'm also not exactly looking forward to labor and birth and all that.  I'm afraid of the unknown, and pain. 


  • Not looking forward to the pain in my pubic bone. I walked around with a heated rice sock in my underpants the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy with my younger DD. The pain was excruciating.
  • 3rd tri heartburn and the 4 month wakeful period ugh.

  • The act of getting out of bed feeling like an Olympic weightlifting event.

    That's good to know about the BH. I get lower back pain right now from the drive, even with a support pillow. I'm kinda nervous wondering if it might get worse. Then again, I'll probably have to stop halfway through to pee if I hit traffic.

  • The fear of repeat postpartum depression - it robbed me of really precious time with DD, i still get angry about it and i just want to do anything/everything that i can to minimize its effects if it rears its ugly head again.

  • I never had an issue with peeing my pants when sneezing, laughing, coughing, etc.  I guess the only thing I am not looking forward to is having to pee 3x a night towards the end.  And I apologize if this comes across as rubbing it in or bragging, but I had an awesome pregnancy with Sunny and I am actually looking forward to every stage of the pregnancy, including L&D! 
  • Delivery!!! 4th degree tears with DS and I'm horrified it will happen again. It took over a year to recover with physical therapy yep down there. Oh and I definitely peed my pants a time or2!
