  • Ok someone needs to tell LO he has to arrive before I run out of belly butter.  This is crucial.

    Are you talking about something for stretch marks? If so, I seriously gave up forever ago...haha. Nothing I used was helping at all so I figured why keep trying.

    I was told nothing really works and it's all genetics. I'm wall to wall stretch mark city. Oh well

    No, I'm talking the belly butter I use to keep my belly from making me look like lunatic from all the scratching I do otherwise... But it's so itchy!!!  The other belly butter I have smells like tangerines, and the scent burns my throat.  I'm not sure why they would even market it to pregnant women with heightened sense of smell coupled with heartburn.

  • Ugh. I'm so irritated/sad/frustrated. Almost 24 hours of contractions, furthest apart 10min, but most 4-6 mins apart, but varying intensity, not getting progressively stronger.  I hate going to triage to get sent home so I promised myself not to call it in till I knew for absolute sure I was in labor. Of course they finally stopped. No "real" labor for me.  Scheduled CS on Tuesday so I know I should STFU, but having trouble waiting.  This is already way longer than I was pregnant last time.

    I think I'm going to stop working for good today and either make an IKEA trip or go to the cinema by myself today. Both excellent cures for the blues.

    This is exactly my situation too! My stomach gets sooo itchy and I probably only have a weeks worth left.

  • @smushi - just to update you quickly on my dog saga, the pup seems to have totally recovered today and went on a long walk with no limping and keeps wanting to play fetch with us in the apartment, so he's clearly feeling better.  So relieved.  We canceled our vet appointment and told them we would reschedule if it seems to come back.  We did try a bunch of different diet options when we first got him, but nothing seemed to really help with the licking, and since it's not THAT severe we've decided to just live with it.  We do give him Benadryl sometimes, per our vet's recommendation, if he seems extra itchy/uncomfortable.  Ok, I will stop subjecting everyone to hearing about my dog now.

    Sorry, need to rant.

    So much acid. I feel like if I'm threatened I can spit it into someones face. I'm turning into a lizard queen. Not that anyone would even attempt anything with me right now. Haven't slept well for a few nights because I feel constantly like I'm going to vomit from it. So I've been extremely pleasant to be around. Add to the fact that I'm not supposed to do anything and I go stir crazy at the drop of a hat.

    I've been on 150 Zoloft Zantac twice a day since like week 23. Nothing is keeping this acid at bay. I see my OB on Tuesday, I can make it till Tuesday. I have a history of ulcers and stomach issues so I really don't want to be dealing with ulcers and the last days of pregnancy at the same time. I'm going to sleep sitting right up tonight (a position I actually find comfortable) in the recliner to see if I can sleep for more than 10 minutes at a time.

  • Anyone else feeling super anxious? It's just a general anxiety not even baby specific I just feel so high strung ahhh
  • I have been feeling super anxious about everything, especially today for some reason.  Also feeling some separation anxiety from my DH.  No idea what to do, trying to focus on other stuff, but it's so hard!
  • sorry i'm late here, but huge congrats, @smushi! <3 hope you are feeling wonderfully!

  • Stupid pregnancy brain is getting the best of me every single day.  Today's issue?  I forgot to cancel an automatic payment for my student loans.  I paid it from another account because I didn't have enough in my usual account, so ended up double paying it, plus getting 3 overdraft fees from very small automatic withdrawals.  And my credit union is very far away (in my home town), so I don't have a way to get cash into it today. I'm just hoping nothing else comes through until Friday.  Stupid stupid stupid. ....All because I forgot to take into account that my paycheck is 75% right now because of work restrictions.  Argh stupid vent!

    So dh are moving in april/may and this weekend seems like a good one to continue apartment hunting its easier to go with just a toddler & without a newborn  but im 38wks2days second pregnancy and I feel pretty good not really in pain just a little uncomfortable but its a 2.5 hr.drive each way... What would you do stay home or go ? 

  • @Katherine8908 If you trust DH's judgment, then I would say stay (especially if you will have to bring your toddler along with you), but I personally would go.  I just like to see the place because we make a decision so I don't hate him later.

  • TGIF and last day of work!!!! Woohoo!!!!  I'm 36 weeks and 3 days.  I'm hoping LO doesn't come out for at least another two weeks so mommy can have some relax time and see some friends while big sis is at daycare.
