Am sitting here crying!

I know my hormones are all over the place but I just feel so feckin ropey it is unreal.

Due c section Friday and I know it not far away but I surely can't feel like this until then.

I have sciatica, serious reflux, carpal bloody tunnel in both wrists, pains from my boobs to my noonie, stuffed up nose and think my legs have decided they are not going to be responsible for carrying extra weight now. I feel sick too and had 2 hours sleep last night. Ended up sitting on the sofa crying watching Caribbean Cops and other such nonsense till I finally caught a couple of hours sleep.

Have to now get DS to school, go to community hospital and have bloods taken and pick up some drugs and them my lovely lovely friend is having a lunch for me.

Please give me tips to get through today. I just want to curl up and ray myself to sleep.

Gawd I know I'm being self indulgent but how can it be possible to feel so shitty!! hmm

Are you on your last week or so too. I really can't remember it being this awful at the end with the others!!

urtwistingmymelonman Mon 11-Nov-13 09:25:07

the heartburn was the worst its ever been last night.
woke up every hour on the hour to glug gaviscon and wee.
have had a sinus headache for weeks.

I have a c-section booked in 10 days and I have most of your symptoms.

Can I just recommend the smallest (and cheapest thing) that made a HUGE difference to my sleep? My consultant gave them to me and I was very sceptical but it's brilliant and works immediately.

You can pick them here or in a supermarket, where they cost about 3 pounds.

I'm sure my nickname tells you all it needs to...

I have 6 days to go and have tried everything to get this baby out...
I am so uncomfortable, the worst part is the under boob/top of bump area, like I am being crushed!!!

Good luck for the c-section, I'm actually slightly envious... I wish I had a definite date to aim for xxx

Sorry, forgot to say - just beg your doctor for some Ranitidine.
One pill and heartburn and reflux are sorted.

I suffered so much with heartburn and after starting on a course last month I could kick myself for not having acted on it before.

Oh and yeah omeprazole is the same for heartburn... Life saver xx

urtwistingmymelonman Mon 11-Nov-13 09:37:57

will definately be trying the nasal strips.
the only thing that relieves my heartburn is liquid gaviscon.
ranitidine,zantac or anything in tablet form just wont touch it.

Thanks everyone.

It's the night time that is so awful and lonely.

Just picked up my ranitidine to take Thursday night and saw midwife. She said all fine, not big baby and to hang in there!!

Oooohhhh didn't think of those nasal strip things. I'll get DH to pick some up for me tonight. The breathing through mouth gives me a sore throat and dry lips which then adds to the general shittiness of it all!!

Madamecastafiore Mon 11-Nov-13 11:25:39

Gawd, should stop moaning though with only 4 days left.

Have you tried raspberry leaf tea and only sitting on a yoga ball to bring baby as down as possible??

Midwife just told me will need to give myself injections for 7 days afterwards too which I am glad had already hah had a blub because would have had blood meltdown there and then!! And they only give you paracetamol and ibruprofen for afterwards!! Aaaarrrrggggjhhhh!!!!!

urtwistingmymelonman Mon 11-Nov-13 11:34:06

apparently raspberry leaf doesn't bring on labour but tones the womb and makes labour easier(always a good thing!)but you have to start taking it a few weeks in advance and quite a lot each day.
the only thing I think really has a chance of working is sex as sperm contains a natural chemical that softens the cervix and orgasms cause you to contract.
I think you have to let the sperm sit on your cervix for a while though so bum raised on a pillow.
a bit like trying to conceive!

Madamecastafiore Mon 11-Nov-13 11:36:18

Oh blimey!!

DH would be up for it. He gets this look every time I unleash the huge boobs that clearly shows what he thinks of them! I just want to punch him.

He is already talking about No 4 too!!!!

Have you tried curry or pineapple? Are they not supposed to help?

Big hugs.

I decided last night after getting 2 hours of br

Big hugs.

I decided last night after getting 2 hours of broken sleep that I'm not doing this again. All excitement has gone and I'm pretty much bed/sofa ridden.

urtwistingmymelonman Mon 11-Nov-13 11:43:29

lol.sounds like my oh.
sometimes I wish he was one of these fellas who didn't fancy it during pregnancy but no such luck but to be honest if its one of the sure fire ways to get baby here then im up for it!
I did read a story of someone who spent the day having lots of sex and eating loads of pineapple in between and she went into labour that night so maybe?
as for curry I avoid it like the plague in late preg as im likely to poo in labour and would rather it was a normal one rather that a loose curry induced one!
