i know show. who cares thats its retail and he'll only get one day off over xmas. He is WORKING, how amazing is that!
tbhj i am struggling without him here in the evenings. am feeling a little lost. he didnt get in till midnight last night as they had to wait for someone to fix a backdoor as couldnt secure the shop at the end of the shift
i am now begging he stays in till friday at the earliest!
bump has dropped overnight, even dd1 mentioned it this morning over breakfast. Not got as much pain in my ribs but instead am sitting down carefully as feel like i have a beachball wedged in between my hips.
dd3 play this afternoon, then two more this evening for dd1+2. then one tomorrow and two on weds.
I feel your pain. I am 36 weeks and I can't wait for it to engage, or just bloody come out. I actually cannot find a position to sit/lie in without it hurting it feels so squashed up in there. And I am grumpy. And I feel like I can hardly move most of the time. And I am tired. And I am still working, and whilst I get to do it sat down, sitting down isn't even that easy. And I am always hungry but I can't fit any food in. And I get heartburn 24-7. Rant rant, moan moan!
Glitteryballs, i feel your pain. I am on a diet of Gaviscon. Its what gets me through the day. I forgot to take it with me last week to my mums, and regretted it, as my mum had the peppermint stuff in her cupboard. it was gross. i almost decided to live with the acid heartburm that day.
I am so with you! DS2 due on the 19th and I am so fed up with waiting-painful contractions every 10 mins every night for a week now but they go away after 2 hours or so...I have become an uncomfortable, fat, bloated, gaviscon guzzling, emotional wreck who cries watching the news!
I am NEVER NEVER EVER doing this again. Seeing doc on thursday-it can't come soon enough!
I've graduated on to the ranitidine - gaviscon aint even worth bothering with IMO. The dose it up to 2 a day, but last time I saw doc she said try just to limit it to one when I can - always end up having to take 2. I ran out the other day and it was a saturday - that was my whole weekend ruined! It's the reflux I can't bear even if it doesn't hurt. I will be quite happily sat on the sofa talking to dp and then without warning I am literally sick in my mouth. Lovely. x
I feel your pain misdee. I'm 38+2 today and I'm so sick of being pregnant. Plus I am absolutely dying to meet my baby. I am ridiculously hormonal and uncomfortable and it's such a pain in the ass not knowing when things are going to get moving. If I go over then I could have 4 more weeks of this <sobs>
Ooooho ive seen ranitidine mentioned, please someone reply, the only thing that works for me is zantac/ranitidine, but, some doctors are saying dont take it, as are a couple of pharmacists, but others say its fine.
Im 35+3, huge elephant feet, rotten heartburn, uncomfortable, told im having a too small baby, its crap!
Feeling your pain too girls and sorry for the hijack
Oh Im FEELING this!! Im 39 weeks on thursday and was told at 37 weeks not to bother booking another appt because he would be here before it came to now so spent ages trying to book an appointment today.... my little girl was 8 days early- technically 'born tomorrow' in terms of how long I have been pregnant and I am so fed up! At 37 weeks he was measuring 41 weeks and APPROX 9lbs, my daughter was only 7lb12.5 cries
I was first put on ranitidine when I had a vomiting virus at 28 weeks and experienced a lot of gastric pain afterwards, so they gave me it to reduce the acid and allow it to "heal". Of course I noticed that it also helped my heartburn a lot, so I asked my dr if I could carry on taking it. She said to reduce the dose to 1 a day and only take it if I really needed to - not because it was likely to cause any harm but because it is just wise to only take anything in pregnancy when it is absolutly necessary, so if you can manage without, you manage without IYSWIM? However, most days I need to take two tbh. I try to go as long as I can before I take each dose, but sometimes I'm in agony. I think heartburn is seen as one of those things you should just "put up with" in pg, but I get it really badly and find it quite draining/exhausting
I'm on the ranitidine too, my gp said my gaviscon intake was getting a bit high! Hes put me on 2 per day, have been on it almost 2 weeks now and I'm 38+1. I am still slugging back the gaviscon occasionally though as the ranitidine wears off! Can't wait for my baby to arrive either, getting so uncomfortable, I'm sure hes dropped down today, and dd arrived at 39wks so hopefully this one will be here by then too, this pregnancy lark is hard work.
