    I feel like once we hit the 3rd tri, it's hard for us not to complain about work. I feel like I could write a book about how much I hate work right now. I know while I'm on maternity leave I'm probably going to miss being at work though. Funny how that works?!

    I am also on the my job is my bitch train. Basically any projects I have had have been taken away and I have the workload of what I had when I started 3 years ago. Maybe this is my boss trying to make me relax before I go on maternity leave, or it is because I am having a baby which is BS, therefore I am going to have the talk about wtf is going on. 

    Also, my boss who is always late, failed to do a reporting drill today, so her boss came to me to complete the task. I completed the task and not even a thank you from my manager, how about you show up to work on time and do your job!

    @adough27....yep, same thing happened to me. Basically, my boss took away my only major client and gave it to someone else about 2 days after I told him I was pregnant. I am so done with this place right now...

    The garbage truck came an hour earlier this morning and woke up DS1 with its crunching and beeping.  Disastrous because a) I was just getting back to sleep after an emergency pee and b) DS knew the truck came and that he missed seeing it, which caused lots of tears.

    My father-in-law and brother-in-law didn't come to my (co-ed) baby shower this weekend. I didn't find out until I got there, and being pregnant and having a soul and all, it brought me to tears. I understand some guys might be weird about baby showers, but brother-in-law had a co-ed baby shower for his only daughter four years ago, and father-in-law was there for that one. This is our first child, and the first boy in the family, so I thought that meant something to them, but my father-in-law's excuse was "Baby showers aren't my scene." He is usually a really caring person and we have a great bond, so that brush off was especially hurtful. I even texted him to let him know I wished he had been there for his grandson's shower, but he never answered and even stopped by our house yesterday to pick up some mail and didn't acknowledge that the shower had happened or anything. I know I have to get over it, but it's hard right now to see how I am going to without any kind of apology or ownership on his part.

    I feel like I'm in the opposite boat. My boss is giving me a bunch of stuff to do! I guess he thinks if I get it all done before I leave, it puts him in a good spot to have all this work already done. The last thing I'm going to do is stress about the workload though so I'm doing what I have time for and that's it. At least you can talk to your boss about it; mine probably wouldn't understand.

    We're set to have about 600 baby chickens at our office (hopefully tomorrow).  Normally, that would be one of the most awesome days of the year for me, but my everything hurts, and while I can definitely sit in the floor and sort the chicks into the main boxes, going out there and bending down to pick up 10-20 chicks for 39 different kids is going to be a nightmare.  I'm sure as heck not helping them pack the boxes to the car...

     So there's this boy. He kinda stole my heart. He calls me "Mom"

    Someone's feet in the OB waiting room stink so bad it's making me sick. Also there's a waterfall in here... A WATERFALL, as if I didn't already have to pee 24/7. 
    Haha! My office has one, too. Luckily, there are two bathrooms right in the waiting room so I just hop up and go before they call my name.

    Yes, I know I'm not going to get a fucking award for not wanting an epi. Stop telling me how much it's going to hurt and how I'll want one. Support me and stfu.

    AMEN!

    @PootsDragon I am in the same boat with wanting to drink rather than eat.  Smoothies have been going down so much better than any solid foods. Tropical Smoothie (yes, I know probably not the healthiest...) has a smoothie with bananas, chia, oats, dates, cinnamon, and almonds.  Also, these mango sorbet pops are amazing...

    On the topic of work... Woke up every half hour last night with an aching body, then took my 3 hour fasting glucose test this morning.  My body is all, "what are you doing to me??" Trying to focus at work this afternoon but that is REALLY hard... I really want to sleep for the rest of the afternoon...

    F work today.  and Probably tomorrow too.  I had indigestion all night so I slept with my head propped up and my neck is killing me.  I am in a weird blah/depressed mood.  And my lunch sucked.  I now feel sick and like I ate 100 pounds of food when all I had was a taco and some potato things.

    @PootsDragon @hreed7289 I'm having a super hard time eating lately as well. I've been downing lemonade like crazy, it's the only thing that sounds good. I'll force myself to eat a protein bar, but eating is just super hard lately! Any tips or tricks from other mamas on how to still get the calories I need to grow two babies?

    I keep having people telling me how fast my labor could go and it's freaking me out and making me angry! I don't know why such a thing makes me mad but I guess I just don't want to get my hopes up, and I'm getting irritated that I may not have time to throw my sheets into the wash before I go to the hospital.

    Same thing goes for everyone telling me I could have the baby early. Yep. I could. But why get my hopes up? I'd rather go with my method of telling myself, "8 weeks left at the most." (34+8=42)

    Add me to the ever-growing list of people OVER their jobs. Today one boss walked in, freaking out thinking I must have called in sick because he didn't see my car in the parking lot. I responded from my office, Nope, I'm here! He only proceeded to annoy me more asking certain questions he was too lazy to research himself, etc. Every question along those lines made me think, WTF are you going to do when I leave?!? Get used to doing your own research!! Then during our Monday staff meeting he asked if I was anxious to start my leave and warned me it'll only be coming with new challenges. I quickly responded, 15 work days left, but no, I'm not excited (sarcastically). I informed him, although I'll miss them, I am excited to not have an alarm clock go off every day!!! I am genuinely exhausted by Thursday. He then let me know, in a funny voice, Don't worry, we'll still call you! Sad thing is, I believe it. I also informed him at least once my new challenges begin, I can go back to having unlimited coffee and WINE!!! :)

    I am getting so tired of people telling me their induction horror stories. It really doesn't help my BP at all to tell me all this crap when I'm still not even sure if that's how my doctor wants to go about this. I have just about burst into tears a few times when people try to scare me and encourage me not to get induced; they don't even bother to ask if it's for legit medical reasons.

    I'm wearing maternity spanx today since I'm wearing a white dress. The size I ordered was based on my height and current weight (not pre-pregnancy weight). However, they are still strangling me and extremely uncomfortable. Never again!! I'd rather just look lumpy!

    If it makes you feel any better, I had 16 friends/family pregnant around the same time that I was pregnant with DD. There were about 10 of us that were induced (including me), and all of them delivered without issues (and also delivered vaginally)......except me (I had issues, and then had a c-section). So just because there are a lot of people out there that have the shittiest birth stories when it comes to induction, there are many, many, many ladies out there that are induced and don't have anything negative to say about their induction.
