    They had to reroute a big Ironman competition through our area because the county just north of us was upset over $$. Normally we don't go out early on Saturday, but today DD had several school functions we had to take her to. All of the locations involved driving through the route. It is a pain in the ass. Who the hell wants to do an ironman in Houston in May? It's hot as hell and humidity is crazy. I guess I'm jealous that these people can actually do this stuff, while I would stroke at mile 2..
    Also disappointed DH gets to chaperone the school trip to the water park today. I wanted to plop my ass on the lazy river and just chill, but my OB said absolutely not. DH has never chaperoned a trip before, so I'm hoping these 4th grade girls don't crush his spirit too much.

    I dropped a pistachio and my instinct was just to bend over quickly and grab it before my dog came running to investigate. BIG MISTAKE. Pretty sure I snapped my pelvis in half. Why has my body betrayed me?

    This gif illustrates how I feel today perfectly:

    The dreaded little bugs call no-see-ums. The typical aches and pains of pregnancy have been rough, but they're all just background noise compared to this annoyance. Apparently the little bit of rain we had last week made the courtyard of apartment complex where I live their new favorite place. Number one thing on the menu for them was the prego lady (me) with all that extra prego blood flowing through me. I feel like a little kid with chicken pox again. :( Benadril cream is barely working (which in my forgetfulness I didn't even bring to work with me) so I have spent most of my work day so far desperately trying to NOT itch my arms, legs, and back.

    I just want to go home and hop in an ice cold shower in the hopes it will numb the itchiness for a bit.
    If anyone has some ideas on good itch relief, I would be super grateful!

    My complete lack of motivation is my bitch today. I need to clean the house and work on conference forms/assessments but I don't want to. At least I got the basement clean?

    Surprise visit from the MIL. Nothing against her, but my house was a disaster and I haven't showered since Thursday. Now I have to entertain, figure out how to feed her, and pretend I don't feel like a giant, disgusting whale the whole time.

    I've been very active all pregnancy, barely changed anything, but I worked out today and everything was just way harder... I guess at 8 months pregnant, it makes sense, but it's such a bummer :/ 
  • Options
    @rakel88 - Major props for staying so active! I'm sure that will help when it comes time for laboring and recovery. My endurance is totally shot. This time last year I was running my third half marathon. Today I walked a mile to get ice-cream and hated myself the whole time because I had to go to the bathroom and kept having BH :neutral: I think it took us an hour to get there and back!

    @rakel88 I feel ya. I'm not nearly as impressive as you in how much I'm doing, but have been consistently doing Barre for a while. Each new class now is a mystery in "What can I not complete this time?"  It's so discouraging to feel like I'm moving backwards instead of forwards, but it's made a huge difference in comfort and weight this pregnancy, so take heart. It's worth it. Hoping it helps with a faster recovery like "they" say it will too.

    My side hurts like it did with my first 2 pregnancies. It feel like my gallbladder is crapping out on me. Lucky me, I had that bad boy removed several years ago.

    @sboston06 yea thinking back a year ago is crazy.. But we just gotta remember, there's a baby growing in there! And this is all part of the process... 

    @jen11797 I hear you on feeling like you're moving backwards. I know for sure it has helped overall during my pregnancy, and hopefully like you said, it'll help during and after labor and birth.

    @theshannondee I too feel antisocial and extra awkward in public situations anymore, it's annoying. I'm ready to feel social and fun again!

    My bitchfest is this 40-50 degree weather + rain and hail at one point today here in Pittsburgh. There's also a rumor it's going to snow tonight. I'm over it.
  • Options
    @rakell88 @jen11797 Right there with you ladies.  I seriously felt great up until Monday and then it was like my body decided it has had enough.  I still have 8 weeks to go and want to remain as active as possible without being too hard on myself mentally for feeling like I'm not doing enough.  
  • Options
    @theshannondee I feel the same way! I vacuumed, entertained my inlaws and now  I'm exhausted!!!! We are having a BBQ for my husband's bday next weekend and I'm not sure how I'll make it through the day. It takes way too much effort to be social.

    DD barfed on our plane today all over herself, DH, and the floor. At least it didn't hit the lady next to her. Much screaming followed and there was a terrible smell for the rest of the flight because it was in the carpet. Sorry fellow passengers.

    @rakel88 I feel you on the body limitations. I've been staying pretty active this whole pregnancy with adaptations, but the past week or so I feel like every little exertion wipes me out. Walking the 3/4 mile to work everyday has me totally beat for most of the morning. I'm going to keep it up because I want to be strong for labor, but I also can't help but compare my current state to where I normally am not pregnant. Even though that's silly, because being pregnant is a HUGE game changer.

    I feel like I move like a sloth!! Required movements are a challenge. I'm not sure I'm capable of going above and beyond!! I asked for a Fitbit for my birthday and today is the first day I actually hit the 10k steps, lol!! I've never come close any other day. I'm a little nervous for what the labor process is going to be like if I don't pick up at least some stretching. 
  • Options
    Major props to all of you making an effort to stay active!! I really need to start walking or doing some yoga or SOMETHING in these last few weeks or I'm afraid my weight gain is going to go through the roof and labor will be even tougher! I've been feeling like a feeble old lady this week.

    I have a doctor appointment tomorrow and decided to go through my files after my last hospital appointment. A few pages in I see this new sheet has been added. It's another woman's details, discussing her loss @26 weeks. I am genuinely so mad for this woman, it includes her name and all her details. I know it was only a mistake for that to be put in my file but if I was her I wouldn't want anyone else seeing those details. The hospital will be getting a phone call tomorrow. I honestly feel horrible for this woman and if I knew it wasn't my information I wouldn't have read it! :(

    @lf93 I got a bill for another patient once but you being able to see personal details is much much worse. I would contact the privacy office of whichever overriding hospital or healthcare system is in charge. That kind of stuff is a big deal :(

    @sboston06 That's the plan first thing tomorrow, a bill I wouldn't care about but the other details are just a big no-no! Privacy needs to be respected especially through pregnancy. Hopefully another slip up like this doesn't happen again!

    I'm with you ladies feeling like a sloth lately.  Weekends lately I have been working on small projects around the house, like cleaning up the backyard, organizing the storage area / utility room, chasing my kids outside, carrying 5 loads of laundry up and down the stairs, putting together baby items, and even that makes me sorry the next day.  Mondays I can barely walk from the increased activity on Sundays.

    I regret not staying active, I have to hand it to those who are still staying as fit as they are. I wish I had done that too.

    When you have to take one of your dogs to the ER vet because she came down with HGE, there's really nothing I find to complain about. She's fine getting meds,fluids,pain meds and a sedative and spending the night but my husband and I lost in the car when we had to leave her.

    Maybe tonight, but I'm thinking tomorrow is more likely. Everyone in the house has been really down, the animals know one of them isn't here. I know Hugo has been extra good today because clarabelle isn't here.

    Thank you, she's doing a lot better, there is nothing scarier than being up all night with a dog that is just having bloody liquid poops. DH is finishing painting the last bit of the nursery and then we're going to see her. Maybe we'll be able to take her home tonight.

    @thepen15ismighty staying up all night with a sick animal is such a terrible feeling. It's just so helpless! I've been there with my dogs, bunnies, and chickens. I'm glad your girl is in good hands!

    @thepen15ismighty I'm so sorry you're going through this. I hope you get to bring her home tonight and balance is restored to the household.

    @thepen15ismighty that is heartbreaking! I hope she can come home soon. I am sure she would feel better snuggled up with you.
