Warning, this is a I hate being pregnant post. It is strictly for me to vent. Warning, there are a ton of gross pregnant stuff coming up. Read at your own risk.
I had a very easy first two trimesters of my pregnancy, probably too easy. Other than being tired due to my thyroid being out of whack, I was fine. And then Mr. Third Trimester came along and I’ve been miserable ever since.
Since then I’ve been constipated every day. I feel like a 80 year old woman having to mix medicine in my drinks so I can poop. I throw up everything I eat. Certain smells make me barf instantly. I have false labor contractions for hours every night. My crotch hurts so bad I can barely walk. I can’t breathe half the time. I haven’t slept in probably a month. And all this is normal. Seriously! Normal you say. At what point is this not normal anymore, at what point should I worry, at what point is someone going to do something about this?
I do understand that every symptom I describe above is a normal side effect of pregnancy. What I don’t understand is how they can all go on at the same time every day and still be just normal. It is so bad at night that I make plans around when I’m going to have my nightly contractions. I can’t hold my 2 year old in my lap because sometimes she puts an elbow into my stomach and starts the contractions. When I lay down, no one can even sit on the side of the bed because if it moves, I’m going to hurl.
So, I’m completely miserable pretty much 24/7. And I have no idea what to do about it.
