I'm right there with you. I just want to cry all the time, mostly because I am just in so much pain and I'm exhausted from not getting any sleep BECAUSE of the pain. Between my sciatica and all this pelvic pain, I have no idea how I'm going to keep teaching for the next 3 months. I feel so rotten because I whine so much. It's my third pregnancy and I think I whine more than BOTH the first time pregnant ladies in my building. I don't mean to complain, I just hurt so much : (

This afternoon, SO miraculously got out of work at a normal time (meaning before 7:00) so after a disastrous trip to Walmart with the kids, I let them out of the car, told SO I had to run to the bank, and really just drove around aimlessly blasting my radio for a good half hour. It was kind of nice and kind of sad at the same time...am I really so stressed that I have to lie just to get a few minutes of peace and quiet??

I actually broke down crying a couple nights ago. I had gotten both kids in bed and was about to lay down because I was really sore and tired, when ds walked out of his room saying he couldn't sleep. He was being loud and it made dd get out of her bed too, refusing to go to sleep. They're both so little, that I'm always having to get up to get them something or help them out. I felt completely dejected knowing that there was no way that I'd be able to just lay down on the couch and not move.

Hugs to all of you. I only have one little one at home but I still get the same overwhelmed feelings.

No to turn this into a man bashing thread, but with all the tiredness and pain I have, SO constantly feels the need to tell me "Well YOU wanted to get pregnant again." Well, yes I did, but that doesn't mean that I can't have a moment now and then and I am having a really difficult pregnancy as far as comfort levels go. I don't see why I should be punished or not get any sympathy just because I wanted to have another baby, right?

*grin* to save us from a man-bashing thread: that would be the response of my MIL with a slight twist.

I don't do pregnancy very well, either. I tend to be a bit of a whiner and SO fully knew this when he consented to trying. Howevery, since it was "my idea" it appears as though all complaining is supposed to go out the window. Sheesh...I would love to see him have to hobble around because his back/pelvis was in too much pain to walk properly.
