Before I begin, I just want to say that I know I shouldn’t really be moaning about pregnancy and I should be grateful for being able to carry such precious life, and I am don’t get me wrong, I know there are many women out there who aren’t able to conceive and carry children so please know that I do understand. I am simply just sharing my personal emotions and feelings as of the present moment. Let’s face it I’m just one hormonal bloody mess at the moment.
Currently, I am 36 weeks and 1 day pregnant with baby number 2, roll on December 30th, though I am definitely feeling like I want him out right now, with all these aches and pains, wish they’d just subside already!
As of last week, I’ve been having these awful Pelvic girdle pains when walking, rolling in bed and getting about, in general, has been a task and a half, this pain is new to me as I never experienced anything like it with Logan’s pregnancy, I can only put that down to the muscles and joints in my pelvis haven’t fully recovered from carrying and delivering Logan into the world.
It’s getting especially difficult chasing around after Logan, as he’s just so into everything, even though he has gotten really good at just playing with his toys, i feel guilty when i cant just take him out in the pushchair because im in constant pain when walking.
When I mentioned being hormonal, it’s not all the time, but I’ll get these flood of emotions override me at once and then I end up teary-eyed and welling up over the littlest of things, and I’ve noticed I’m overthinking everything and overreacting a lot more! For example, me and rob will be watching something on Netflix, I’ll look over and he’ll be on his phone (again), and then I’m thinking he ain’t bothered about watching this etc etc.
I’ll also get annoyed because I’ll think he’d rather spend his time talking to his friends from work than talking or spending time with me, pathetic I know but that’s what crazy pregnancy hormones do to ya! (You’ve been warned) The worst thing about being an introvert is the fact I keep everything bottled up to a point where I break down crying, but I put that down to my past and bullying from childhood.
Sorry about this negative post, but sometimes you just need to vent and get your feelings out there, even if you might end up regretting half the stuff you say, it’s better out than in, that’s what I’ve learnt.
All in all, I feel well, apart from the aches and pains, I really couldn’t have asked for a more straightforward pregnancy. Yes I’m a bit more hormonal than usual but you kind of have to expect that when you feel and look like a beached whale, and the only thing to wear that is comfortable is those 2 quid Primark leggings and an oversized men’s Tshirt because you’re too cheap to buy actual maternity clothes (No offence, Primark leggings and oversized men’s t-shirts are actually really comfortable!)
