Pregnant lady problems

I am having some pregnant lady problems the last few days!
- I wake up every night at 2am and I can't get back to sleep!
- my winter jacket just barely buttons up! I obviously have to buy a new one
- my chocolate chip muffin that I had for breakfast was way too good and way too small and now I want another one, right.the.heck.now!

Do you ladies have any pregnant lady problems??

Re: Pregnant lady problems

  • I got excited about Oreos the other day, just to discover that we were out of milk :-(

  • I wake up everyday at 4am every damn morning and can't go back to sleep. Now that I am on bed rest it's worse cause I am bored to death!!!


  • I have been getting terrible tooth aches the last couple weeks! I read that it is fairly common while pregnant but it bloody hurts! I hope it's not a cavity. In more positive news my cousin taught me this rubber band trick with my jeans so I figured out a way to make my regular jeans fit for at least a bit longer.

  • my back has been spasming a lot lately! it really hurts. I'm also starting to outgrow even my bigger 'normal' clothes and I see myself going full-blown maternity clothing soon, but I don't have money for it :( I keep trying to save for baby but every month I have just a tiny bit leftover in my bank account. it makes me super sad. I have a good job, but my student loans are crazy. I'm doing income based repayment for my federal loans, but the two private loans are what kill my monthly budget. Idk what to do about them....all the bill paying and saving is left up to DH and I love that he is a good provider but hate that I don't contribute :/

    • I have been having muscle spasms on my shoulder. 
    • I wake up at 4am and when I can finally go back to sleep it is time to wake up and I'm so sluggish and tired. 
    • I hate that I have to lather my body with so much lotion to avoid stretch marks that I dread showering. 
    • I cannot start my day without a donut. :@)
    • I'm not as fast as I used to be and I get winded incredibly quick!
    • My feet are so swollen that they are stretching my flats. b-(

  • #1 and #2 have been some of my biggest complaints thus far!  The other big "pregnant lady problem: I'm having are my HORMONES. Honestly, it's what I get for bragging up until now about how I "haven't been" hormonal.  HA.  That's what I get.  I've been a mess and crying/angry over everything.little.thing.  It gets better, right?

  • @mhilpisch10 have you tried using sensodyne? My dentist recommended that since I had just had a cleaning and they can't do xrays to find cavities that are still invisible to the eye. He said if that worked to take away the pain for more than just a couple of days it was probably just sensitivity.

     Check out consignment stores or Craigslist (depending on where you are). You can get great options that look like new for less than half the price!

  • @awhitworth926- thank you! I am going to try that! I hope it does the trick.

    @ntdane - I did the same exact thing last night! Hahaha your post made me laugh so hard. I went to go grab the stool and my husband was like are you coming to sit by me! :) (all hopeful) and I'm like sorry I was just getting the stool to sit in front of the stove.

    @torilea - yes! I have hairs growing on my stomach too!! They are dark and I'm blond! It's gross. I told my sister I now have a treasure trail haha.

  • I can relate with a couple. 

    I cannot sleep in the early morning. I was up from 1:30 am - 5:00 the other night. And then had to get up at 5:45. It sucked. 

    All of the muscles around my lower legs cramp constantly. I woke up this morning b/c some muscle right around my achilles was seizing. Now a muscle running down the side of my right calf is on the verge of cramping. They are just never comfortable. 
  • Crusty nipples!!?!?! That is what just crept up on me a few days ago. Also leg fidgets at night, still getting up to wee in the night, tired a lot of the time, bit emotional/want to cry at stupid stuff, craving sweet things and I love my savory....

  • Hubby told me he was watching cast away, and I cried like a baby because I told him the movie was so sad...he hugged me and laughed -.-
  • I've been waking up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep, either.  Luckily that past couple nights I've been sleeping through, but yikes!  It was hard being so tired in the morning, and I wasn't even anxious about anything, just wide awake.  I figured it was just some kind of pregnancy insomnia, which I've heard of.

    Eat another muffin!

    or goodwill.  I live in a community known for its 'snooty' folks, so the selection is a little higher end brands and the clothes are in great shape.

    • i hate my job, have for months, worse now that i'm hormonal (but i can't justify leaving until after the baby is born as i have awesome benefits)

  • Oh dear here we go!
    1. I cannot be bothered with work. I don't mind getting there in the morning but then u just want to go home!
    2. My back and hips ache and I can only stand for a short time - I too have gotten a chair to sit on at the stove!
    3. At my next antenatal app I am going to get another GT test request- I passed the last one and I just KNOW ill fail this one. I'm not ready to give up chocolate milk etc :( :(
    4. I feel huge!
    5. I have expensive taste in baby accessories and have certain things I feel like I cannot possibly live without!
    I better stop now!
  • Today was rough at work. I couldn't get comfortable. Between this weird side cramp I'm getting, RLP and what I think is the bub moving, it was tough to get stuff done. Even more tough to concentrate when I was working through something with someone. It's all uncomfortable and distracting.

  • 1. Pains, pains, and more pains.... hips, back, ribs, etc.

    2. Swollen feet, ankles, and calves.

    3. Peeing.... A LOT whether it be during the day or at night.

    4. Not sleeping well at all and having to get through a day with 16 four year olds!

    5. Just wanting to be able to be at home all the time instead of at work.

    6. Needing/wanting a nap but not being able to take one.

    7. Pregnancy congestion.... every single night.

    8. Knowing that sitting helps some of my pains but I can't do my job (for the most part) while sitting.

    9. Crying over everything... and once I start, I can't stop!

    10. Worrying about every little pain, cramp, etc. because I am super worried about missing pre-term labor signs!

     

    Okay.... I will stop with 10!

  • I have excruciating back and shoulder pain all of the time. I cannot stand up for long, which makes teaching my 5th graders much harder. I haven't been sleeping. I can't feel LO at all yet. 

    Oh, and my hormones are out of control! A cute 1 y.o. dressed as a teddy bear came to my door with his mom. He was so adorable, that I started crying.

  • 1) My feet are KILLING me.

    2) I am already sleeping inclined because of heartburn. Everything is giving me heartburn.  Including water, depending on the time of day.

    3) I am still really tired.  Not all the time, but when it hits, OMG.

    4) Acne.  My face looks like a teenager's.

    5) This stupid cold that won't go away because I can't take dayquil.

  • No one will give me a seat on the subway. Need a sign that says pregnant woman! I can't wait till I'm huge so people will let me sit down.
    This! And now that it's getting colder and I'm wearing layers... people really won't be able to tell until I'm almost in labor... ugh.

    Also, my hip hurts A LOT and I pee way too frequently. Luckily I'm not waking up in the middle of the night anymore but still..

  • 1. I'm still sick, can't take any of the good stuff. 2. While taking my kids trick or treating I was coughing and peeing my pants. 3. Other then that I've had an easy pregnancy! I can't complain too much yet : )
  • I can't complain too much. Although sitting too long at work is making my tailbone and entire ass hurt. I think it's swollen :)

    Oh yes! So gaining weight is normal I know it happens but it's not exactly exciting. It's hard for me. Little difficult to just be ok with it, so nothing fits anymore, my husband said my ass is getting bigger.... Like thanks tips! I am so emotional so of course I cried like a baby when he said thAt, My back hurts pretty sure I have a pinched nerve because from my left hip to knee has a burning sensation, I have a horrible cough, I am tired all the time, my job sucks right now, I am starting to struggle to put socks on lol my winter coat no longer fits, I have crusty nipples... What is that anyway??? And everyone thinks is awesome to tell me their horror stories about birth and being a ftm I am terrified! :( some lady was like oh I ripped clear out to my anus! Ouuuuuch!!! Umm what else pregnant lady problems galore. But I know it's all normal and that this baby is such a blessing and soooo worth all the issues. I can't even imagine if I already love him so much to be ok with the crappy stuff... How much in love I will be when our little guy is in my arms, but I will admit I am a crabby patty right now

    I have a headache every morning, I wake up to pee at 5am everyday (alarm set for 7:30), the baby's feet constantly kick at my cervix, I'm tired all day long, everything I eat feels like it's hanging out in my throat, I'm getting winded walking up the stairs.
    This. It's driving me nuts. Also, itchy skin, feeling fat instead of pregnant, and  nothing fits me right.

    I'm surprised no one said they can't see their vag anymore.
