Motherhood || So Over It

I have hit that be-dreaded point in my pregnancy when I am just truly over it. The sleepless, insomnia has hit strong and I feel like I watch all hours of the night tick through each time I roll over and check my phone to see if it's time to get up. Many mornings Jon wakes up to find me on the couch, finally passed out, just in time to wake up before Maddox does. I'm exhausted and ready for a nap by 3 or 4pm every single day. I can't sit and or stand in any comfortable position. My breathing feels restricted and heavy most of the day thanks to baby girl sitting high in my ribs and then my poor bladder takes the grunt of her kicks at night when I almost feel like she's low enough to be birthed.

See what I mean? All the whining over here.

I didn't hit this "over it" point until 35 weeks with Maddox. So I'm trying to prepare myself to go the distance these next 9 weeks before her anticipated arrival.

I'll tell you what I can't wait for! Breathing normally, a glass of sangria and to stop hearing that obnoxious grunting sound that escapes my lips when I bend over 50 times a day.

  1. Pregnancy can be SO hard! And I feel guilty to even admit that sometimes because I feel like I'm complaining when I'm getting such a big blessing at the end of it all. Anyway, I totally sympathize with you! Hope you somehow get some good rest soon!

  3. I'm 100% with you on being over being pregnant! I think the worse thing is knowing that it's not going to get any better until baby girl arrives! I'm just dreading swollen feel and not being able to lift my legs high enough to get my pants on. #preggerproblems.

  10. Could you be any cuter?

    The correct answer is "no."

    Hang in there, Mama! You know it's all worth it in the end!

  11. Well, she will be here before you know it! And you look super cute so there's that! And I can guarantee she's easier inside . . . LOL! I wish you restful and easy days ahead . . . I'm sure the heat isn't helping either.

  12. Well, for feeling less than wonderful, you look absolutely stunning. I'm only twenty-five weeks right now, so I'm still in the honeymoon trimester, but with every passing week I feel like I'm struggling just a wee bit more. Cheers to some sangria in the near future for both of us!

  14. With Bensen, I was totally fine with him staying in until 41 weeks (with the exception of the middle of the night bathroom runs and 5am wake up starving moments) but with this one, I'm ready.... She's been so low from the beginning (literally dancing on my bladder my entire anatomy ultrasound) that I feel like my bladder has started getting used to being kicked and almost conditioned itself. The varicose vein issues and pains that I've been having have been the worst though! I'm glad that we finally got Bensen to go up and down the stairs and walk on his own so that I don't have to carry him as much.

  15. Hi, My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
