Re: I know I have 2 more months yet, but I am DONE!

OMG, this kid thinks he's freaking Alien, and going to climb straight out the side of my belly. For the first time, DD2 saw him moving and it kinda freaked her out a bit. It hurts. Baby boy you can NOT just claw your way out the side of my belly.

DH's family annoys me. FIL and SIL came over today. Which is fine except there's never any plan. They show up, sit around, watch the girls run around, that's about it. They just kinda show up whenever, sometimes at lunch time, this time it was dinner time. But, they don't want to eat. So then we end up eating in front of them. And SIL always has something to complain about, never anything good to discuss. OR, if she does have something good to discuss, she makes a GIANT mountain out of a little thing. Like she will talk about how excited some 2 yr old in her church's nursery is potty training. As if this is her own child and not some total stranger that she sees for an hour a week. But today it was all about how she's not working AGAIN and what's wrong with everyone ELSE that she can't find a job. Never mind that she's had several already and keeps getting "let go."

DH then proceeded to make it all my fault that it's hot in our house because I don't want to rearrange our whole budget to buy a bunch of box fans when I have plans to buy us a new thermostat.

I am tired of being sick. It's just a head cold, but UGH.

I am p***** off at the bank and one of my bills. I am mad at the bank because DH had to get a paper check due to direct deposit changes and the bank didn't give us access to the whole thing and since it was the weekend we have had to wait all weekend with only $100 of this paycheck, instead of paying the bills we have to pay.


And one of my bills that comes out automatically charged the wrong card, the old card at the old bank that was due to be closed on Monday, and there was no money in it because it was supposed to be closed after the direct deposit was ended there, so now we are going to be hit with overdraft fees.

GRRRRR

ITA!

Especially the hips and the peeing!

This is our 4th in 6 1/2 years and I'm worn out and ready. I am not ready to care for a 4th babe but I am ready to have my body back.

YOUR NOT done!!

I have been on bed-rest for 9 weeks with my twins---I am hoping to keep them in every single day, I cry when I think about my premature babies hooked up to a zillion tubes.

I was 80 percent effaced, zeron station and 4cm last time I went in, I avoid sneezing---LOL.

NO one is done here ladies I hope we all have fat healthy babies.....

Sending lots of love!!

I think venting is ok and healthy. Not everyone has a kitten and rainbows pregnancy and for some it is down right miserable.

No one is implying they want a preemie.

I pray you're babes stay put until the end!

Re: I know I have 2 more months yet, but I am DONE!

I hear you...totally don't want a preemie and want this baby to stay put as long as she needs to, but I am definitely looking forward to having her out

And wrappingmama - WOW! Way to go! Bedrest is SO hard, but it's awesome that you are doing such a good job keeping those babies in!

I totally get what you are saying. I've had 2 sets of twins. I've been on hospital bedrest and I've gone into PTL. I've been significantly dilated for several weeks. (I was 3 at 32 when I went into labor, then 4 33, then 5 at 34 which landed me in the hospital. I delivered at 36...this was my second set of twins. I was on bedrest with the first set also, but only in the hospital for 24hrs.) I get what you are feeling. The sheer terror of knowing that any minute you could deliver and your babies aren't ready yet. When I realized I was in REAL labor at 32wks, the panic that set in was extreme. Even when my first set was delivered at 35 with no warning at all, which is considered a "safe" time for twins, panic set in that I wasn't far enough along. My discomfort was extreme especially with the second set. I was contracting (hard) frequently and consistently for many weeks (started around 18wks with the second set and they were strong and frequent by about 26). With the second set, I swelled so badly that even the nurses would comment that they had never seen anything like it. I was in serious pain. By 33 or 34wks, I was done...just done. Did that mean, I wanted them to actually be delivered? NO WAY!!!! But, I was very ready for it to be over. When I had to have my water broken at 36wks (which by then I could hardly walk because of the swelling) because of pre-e, I really didn't want to do it. I was in SO much pain from the swelling and contractions, but I did NOT want my babies to come before they were ready. Unfortunately, it really was time for me to give in. So, I totally understand what you are saying. Twins is hard. But, even one baby can be pretty uncomfortable. (Believe me because I'm pregnant with one this time and I'm miserable despite feeling like that is ridiculous since I only have one baby in here.) Just because we are ready to be done with the pregnancy does not mean we actually want preemie babies or to deliver early. We just want to complain and then get this over with through gritted teeth as fast as we can make time fly. LOL.

Great job keeping those babies cooking!!! Keep them cooking for as long as you possibly can. 36wks is average for twins and usually babies that gestation go home, but I had one have to stay in the NICU for 11 days. He wasn't ready. I know you are doing all you can. I just wanted to remind you of how important what you are doing is. And, please feel free to PM me. Like I said, I've had 2 sets of twins and BTDT. It won't be long now and it's SO worth it.





OP - I completely agree. I actually feel completely guilty for feeling this way. My previous 2 pregnancies were twins. I feel like this should be totally easy and I should be breezing through. Nope! I am miserable and I unhappy and cranky. My uterus is SO super sensitive and I'm sick of it. I have a LOT of contractions which is part of my history. I can't be touched because if anyone touches me anywhere near my uterus I contract and it hurts. This is my 5th. I have 28 month old twins. They are all over me all the time and I just want to push them away. And, I get some sort of sensory issue when I'm pregnant. It literally makes my skin crawl to be touched, especially on my legs. I feel like this correlates to my restless leg syndrome that drives me bonkers. I don't have any real issues either. We expected that my BP might go up because I have a history of it, but it hasn't. I failed my one hour glucose, but passed my 3 hr with flying colors. I feel like I should be "good to go," but I'm so uncomfortable and miserable. Other than the swelling mentioned above, I feel like I'm just as uncomfortable as I was with my twins. How can that be??? Ugh! So, I feel you. You definitely are not alone in your "doneness."
