if you don't want to read a post from a whiney pregnant woman, read no further.
i am tired of being pregnant. this pregnancy has really taken its toll on me.
i am irritable. i am impatient. my children look at me as if i have grown 3 heads and am going to eat them alive.
i just might.
i had a dr. appt yesterday and, of course, my cervix is unchanged. so, she kindly stripped the membranes.
it started the contractions in earnest a few hours later. first they were 6 minutes apart, and within a few hours we were headed to the hospital with contractions at 3 minutes apart and painful. once we get there, they confirmed the contractions, but the cervix wasn't going anywhere.
so i walked around for an hour.
lovely hospital gowns (one on front and one on back, ya know, to cover up the wide load). flip flops, and a tour of the lovely hospital grounds.
the KISA ate a cheeseburger and sweet potato fries while i did a circuit around a big copper tree.
is it a bad thing that i rejoiced when he accidentally threw away his cookies with the trash? esp since i was only allowed ice chips?
back up to L&D for another check. no change.
have to walk outside for another hour. thank goodness the weather is nice here.
i haven't walked this much since before i was pregnant!
back upstairs. painful contractions 2 minutes apart, can't walk through them.
call the doctor.
go home? when do i come back?
"when your contractions are close together and painful."
you mean, like they are right now???????
oh, well. at least i got to lay in my own bed to get through them. and eat.
eating was nice.
i am tired of the contractions. they are tiresome. they wake me up frequently. i don't need any practice for after the baby comes. i need sleep.
i am discouraged.
i am whiney.
i am impatient.
i may just eat one of my children today.
