Sometimes I Just Need to WHINE!!

I just feel the need to vent about how awful I am feeling! Three weeks to go, and I don't feel like I can make it. Here's the latest and greatest of what pregnancy is doing to me: I have been having this very weird pain to the left of my belly. Its always in the exact same spot. I feel like I have to keep my hand on it so it won't hurt. I thought at first maybe Cruz was kicking me there and making it bruised, but the longer its gone on I realized it had to be something else. I told my dr. about it today and she said that it sounds like my muscles are so stretched that I probably have a tear in my muscle in that spot! Doesn't that sound fun!! What makes it worse is having a 1 year old that I constantly am picking always gets worse when I'm lifting and bending over. She told me to take Tylenol for now and if it gets worse they will call in some pain meds for me. I'm tempted to just say, "ITS WORSE" so I can get some real medicine!! :)

I'm also scared that it WILL only get worse, since I am only going to get BIGGER! Ugh. Only good news from the appointment: gained no weight this week, which I couldn't believe after the mass amounts of Halloween candy I have consumed....and cookies...and chips...and any other junk food I have been able to get my hands on!

Here's my other thought about the muscle seems weird that it hurts this bad with baby #2...which leads me to think maybe Cruz is a BIG baby!! Dr. didn't say this, but of course the thought has run through my mind!! So needless to say, I feel like I am in bad shape. I know it could be way worse, but I'm pretty good at feeling sorry for myself! Not a great day today....BUT, want to know one of the things that can still totally make me feel better and take my mind off my misery:

Yes, my little stinker is such a Momma's boy! I taught him to say "yes" whenever I ask him if he loves me! It melts my heart everytime! He also says "mama" ALL the time, too. Its really sweet when he's tired and comes to me and really pitiful says "mama" for me to hold him...I love the lil guy!!!!

I'm so sorry you feel so badly! Hopefully little Criz will come early so you don't have to wait 3 more weeks! Your little guy is a doll! What a precious age...

Sorry are so close!!! The fact that you are still up and moving around is impressive...with Owen, I literally just sat on the couch the last few weeks...Claire sitting with me =).

Get the good meds...=)

Oh Amy! I feel your pain!! The last weeks are the toughest - it's okay to whine a little bit and eat Halloween candy and chips and whatever else you feel like!

The Bells said...

Amen, Sister! I think you have every right to whine. I can't believe your body has done this twice in two's exhausted! Hang in there...I'll be thinking of you the next few weeks. And you know it will soooo be worth it!

I am sorry you feel so bad, let me know if you need me to bring you food or anything (to take a load off).
You have every right to whine, I know the feeling of that sharp pain (I had it on both sides) not fun.
hang in there!

Amy, I do WISH that you feel better!!! I promise in your pics you do not look like your muscles are stretched to the limit. If it's any consolidation, I know at this point it's not, you still look GREAT! The video of Maddox almost made me forget your grief, he loves that mommy :) At least there is light at the end of the tunnel!
