Ftm here and I'm just at the top of the spiral staircase headed down into crazy land. Hoping someone can talk me down.
The last two weeks have been almost unbearable starting with excruciating left rib pain. Saw obgyn last week and sono confirmed nothing out of whack, just uterus pushing out of place. In addition to that pain, everyday I wake up with something new: pain in my fingers so bad that I can't make a fist, headaches, pelvic pain and zero sleep. I keep taking days off of work because I pretty much can't function. I've been at my job 7 years so I feel fairly secure that even if I blow thru the vacation time that I planned to take on top of my std mat leave that they stI'll will allow me time but I just don't know how I will get thru another 6 weeks of this. I miss shaving my legs and pooping without needing an engineering degree to figure out the best way. I miss long runs after work. I miss feeling happy and not feeling hateful cranky and miserable. I miss not hurting all the time. And I miss not complaining! I've been crying all day feeling so guilty that I'm so blessed to be having this baby but at the same time jealous of others who sail thru preg with zero complaints. I knew 3rd would be hard but not this hard. Thanks for indulging my meltdown.
