Anyone on a second pregnancy (or 3rd or 4th?) wanna join me for some complaining? :)
I feel like with my first pregnancy I was MUCH better at being pregnant. Stuff didn't bother me, I didn't complain, read all the ingredients in everything, etc.
This one I just feel like I can't wait to be done. Don't get me wrong. I'm totally excited for my baby to get here. Hubby and I had decided a long time ago to stop at two, and I'm really excited to add the second little girl to our family. I can't wait to hang out with her and play with her and my daughter. But being pregnant? Ugh!
I miss having "my" body and wearing my normal clothes. Unlike my first pregnancy, I didn't completely cut out caffeine (the headaches were too much this time), but I still limit to like 2 a day....I miss being able to have whatever I want. I've been sick with a cold/flu since Wednesday and I miss real drugs, that are actually meant to cut stuff out of your system. I bought some herbal tea stuff tonight for sinuses and my mother noticed it said, "Call your doctor if pregnant" and was on my case about it. Because I'm sure me not being able to breathe is just as healthy for a baby as some herbs. I'm tired and I can't carry around my toddler anymore without getting winded or my back hurting and I missed getting to just pick her up and cuddle her.
And the questions! I'm due in April. Yup, April. Yes, I'm sure. It's a girl. No, it's a girl. Yes, I know my stomach is "round like a boy", but it's a girl. I'm about ready to punch someone. I don't think I was as annoyed with everyone with pregnancy number one!
I'm at 30 weeks, so not much further, but today I saw pics on Facebook of two people who I know who were due in February and both have babies and I'm supremely jealous.
And then I feel like, "Girl...this is the last time you are going to do this..you should totally be enjoying it".
Anyone want to commiserate about how you were a better pregnant lady with the first or have words of encouragement for my last few months? :)
