Twatwaffle Tuesday

Because I have been up since 4:30am, I thought I would get a jump on the weekly discussion! Who's the twat today?

Re: Twatwaffle Tuesday

  • My twatwaffle today is slow internet, data service. At my house and now at work everything is loading super slow, I feel like I am living in the world of dial up. Come on, ain't nobody got time to wait for email to load. 
  • Loading the player...
  • My TW is my body! It won't let me fall asleep until super late and than I'm freaking exhausted when I still have to get up early for work. Also TW is this awful acid reflux I woke up with today 
  • My cat woke me up at 330 making some loud noise and then I couldnt fall back to sleep..today blows already so tired! 
  • Constipation.  It's uncomfortable and driving me insane.  I don't know how to fix it :(

    The placenta previa and contractions are the major TW today... they're why I'm not at 4-H Camp (yes, I'm still moping about that). 
    Also, the gestational diabetes is a total TW too.  I'm 32+5 and freaking starving all the time... and I'm sick of cheese (never mind the constipation that accompanies eating a LOT of cheese - thank goodness for stool softeners!!!).  Carbs are generally not my friend at the moment, but all I want right now is a huge warm chocolate brownie topped with a gigantic scoop of vanilla ice cream and smothered in fudge sauce, caramel sauce, and pecans.  Oh and a huge stack of pancakes saturated in maple syrup.
    DH is being a little bit of a TW - he keeps putting DS to bed late (we lay down with DS at night until he goes to sleep and then we get up), and he expects that I will come wake him up at a "decent hour" to tell him to come to bed.  I flat out had to tell him this morning that I'm extremely pregnant and need more rest than I'm getting... between getting up at night to go get him from DS's room, not being able to sleep on my sides (hip pain, ugh!), and having to get up sometimes 2 or 3 times a night to pee, I'm not getting nearly enough sleep.  I'm waking up exhausted with lack-of-sleep headaches, and something's gotta give!!

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

  • My pain is my TW. My hip/lower back/butt on the right side is killing me and I'm limping around like I'm disabled. I thought it was sciatica but it doesn't radiate so I don't have any idea what's causing it. Heat doesn't really help, a warm bath didn't help, Tylenol doesn't help. Tomorrow I booked a pregnancy massage so I can only hope that helps. Last night I got a charley horse on my right calf and it took forever for the pain to go away. 

    I'm annoyed that we left things for the last minute and now I feel useless. We haven't washed any baby clothes, set up the nursery and haven't had our baby shower yet. I feel like I can't enjoy anything because everything hurts and I just want to lay down and relax.

    I'm not really sure what my deal is today (I'm not normally just a super cheerful person, like that annoying smiley bish that everybody is like wtf is she on) but I am that super happy weird person.  The cheer is kind of getting on my own nerves. 

    Edited because I apparently need my own personal editor and that all came out REALLY obnoxious. I am the twatwaffle.

  • @theshannondee I feel you. I am less and less into the chit chat these days. It'd be nice if people found things to talk about other than my pregnancy!! Monday was the official start of my maternity leave and I've already had three friends hit me up to come over, help organize, etc. Fantastic!! Who knows when they'll leave and how many hours I'll be subjected to all their pregnancy questions!!! 
  • Gwynnie Bee is a TW today. If you haven't heard of it, it's a clothing service you subscribe to. Based on the level of your subscription, they'll send you anywhere between 1 and 4 garments at a time that you "rent." When you're done with them, you mail them back, and they send you more. I decided to cancel my account in October - they don't have maternity clothes. I received no correspondence from them afterwards, so I was under the impression I had successfully canceled my account. Lo and behold, I get an e-mail from them today notifying me that my account is delinquent and I owe them $767???! They also claim I never returned one of the dresses. I called their customer service department, and she acknowledged the e-mail activity from October when I indicated that I wanted to cancel my account. The rep was unsure of their process for resolving a delinquent account. I sure as heck am not paying that, though! The e-mail notification indicated that if I don't bring the account current, they'll send my information to a collections agency. Can they really come after me for this money?
  • @soberkfell I would be on the phone till they resolved it!  That's crazy!

  • @theshannondee yes yes yes.  I have accepted the fact that I am basically just being a mean person and don't care anymore.  I've had some friends offer to come over and just "veg out" with me and watch movies, and I don't even want to do that.  Leave me alone, I'm probably walking around in my underwear and bikini top eating and don't want to try to be nice.
  • awww @theshannondee I totally understand. I'm not in the most social mood myself so I can only imagine how you feel being on bedrest and not wanting guests. I hope people understand and don't take it personally.

    The insomnia is my TW. The night before I slept almost 10 hours, it was a complete miracle! I was so happy but then last night I was so hot and achy that I couldn't go back to sleep after my bathroom break. I think a mid day siesta is a must.

    First off, this sounds like perfection. Second, you're doing the right thing! It might be a while before you can get some real, solitary, "no one else needs me to do anything for them" relaxation. Enjoy every minute. You'll want visitors again at some point after LO is here. They can come then.

    So nice that they don't correlate until they want money! You established cancelling your subscription and that's on them! I hope you saved your emails that far back but even if you did not, you haven't ordered anything since October! Do they supply the postage to and from your home? Assuming it's them, the United States Postal Service, Fed-Ex or UPS should be at fault for losing their merchandise!

    I feel you! Have only been dealing with GD for a few weeks now but I am on edge when it comes too food. I've been eating so many vegetables I'm bound to turn into one! And don't get me started on a glass of milk. All I want is a tall, cold glass of milk but that would take up all of the carbs for one meal... I know this is all for baby's health but my goodness. Our world is full of carbs! This is coming from a girl that was craving fruit before GD reared it's angry head.

    It's the local car dealership for me...we took our car in last week and found out it's a huge engine issue (that has happened once before). The fix may be covered under warranty but until that is approved they won't give us a courtesy/rental car... so we've now been without a car for over a week becuase the warranty hasn't been approved yet! 
  • My hyperemesis is a TW today. I told work I'd be back at noon, I may not be back at all. 
  • @honeybear40 I love veggies, and green beans are one of my favorites, but I can only eat so many green beans.  We eat a lot of meat at our house, but I miss having my favorite sides to go with them.  I miss huge loaded baked potatoes and corn on the cob.  I've been slurping down the Fairlife Chocolate Milk for bedtime snacks and to help with the chocolate cravings, but I want a tall glass of white milk to go with my breakfast too.  I want a glass of sweet tea with lunch and supper - I can drink unsweet, but it seems so wrong to this Southern girl to drink tea without sugar in it.  I'd love to sit down and eat half a bag of grapes.  Strawberries are fair game, but again... like I said about the green beans.  Any way you look at it, GD sucks.

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

  • @lucy2113 Aw man that sucks. I have HG too but it's been pretty manageable lately. Are you at one of the common relapse weeks?

    I put splenda in mine! its definitely not the same as good ole sweet tea, but I cant really taste a difference anymore!! and it doesn't seem to raise my bs, so its a win win!!

    @shanparadise not that I know of. But it's becoming a weekly occurrence. If you don't mind me asking, what medication(s) are you taking??

    eta: I only ask because I feel like mine aren't cutting it anymore.
  • I do splenda or stevia for unsweetened....whichever is avail! Love sweet tea and sadly have been gulping the Gold Peak & Pure Leaf brands but I can't help it because it is so good and I can't get enough of it!

  • @lucy2113 I take 4mg of zofran every six hours, 25 mg of phenergan every six hours, reglan with meals and before bed, Diclegis three times a day, and Prilosec before bed. It's a lot of medication but it's kept me stable for months now. 
  • My headache is a TW. 
  • The amount of stress I'm under right now is my TW. I've been dealing with contractions and cramping since Saturday, and a visit to my perinatologist yesterday confirmed that while they're not doing much, they are doing something, and 32+3 is too early for these twins to come. 

    Biggest issue? My sister is getting married this weekend and I'm the matron of honor. Her ceremony is outside, and it's supposed to be 101 degrees. My doctor, DH, and mom all think it's unsafe for me to be outdoors for an extended period of time in that kind of heat. The ceremony is small, maybe ten people, but the reception after will be larger, and indoors. I have another doctor appointment Thursday morning, so I will ask again, but I fully expect having to tell my sister I won't be able to be at the ceremony. I just have to keep what's best for my babies in mind, no matter how much it sucks. 
  • @shanparadise - I'm sorry :( that really sucks. You are right that you have to do what's best for keeping those little babies inside! Hopefully your sister will understand.

    I totally meant to reply earlier. It sounds more like your SI joint is the culprit. That was my issue, because the pain didn't radiate down my leg either. I couldn't walk and when I'd go from sitting to standing, that whole area would just kill me. The only relief I got was after a massage. It sucks because the joint and ligaments are sooo deep that it is almost painful how much they have to massage it. You will be super tender and sore for a couple of days, but it is almost a welcome relief from the pain you're experiencing now.
  • @PootsDragon I tried denial to no avail. Apparently my body thinks 3rd tri is a good time to revisit any ailment I've ever had and add in some new ones for fun too. My roommate was burning some really nasty incense in my basement and I almost threw up in my washing machine. 
  • @stellaluna14 LOL now that would be a b!tch to clean!
