If so - how on earth are you managing?? Every step I take hurts and I can barely be on my fee for 5 minutes before I need to -lie- sit down. Having to fill a morning and an afternoon for my 18 month old is proving rather challenging!
No but I'm whale sized and looking after 2 year 3/4 old and 4 1/2 year old with dh away if that helps (I suspect not)! If it was me I would take your lo out to toddler group and sit there/soft play/friends house (or invite friend to you)/stick tv on or get lo into nursery!
You are going to need to get onto the 2 under 2s thread aren't you - good luck!
I had this when pregnant with DD, DS was 21 months by the time DD came along and he was in a phase of running away (or shall I say expliring his boundereies!) and being a handful.
I went to see an acupuncturist (for different matter) and told her about the SPD and she asked if she could try to relieve it. It worked BIG time and I was nearly pain free for 2-3 weeks at the time, wish I had known earlier!
Sorry for not replying earlier - I lost my own thread .
I am so in awe of you looking after 2 DCs whilst whale like - I would love 3 altogether but have coped embarassingly poorly with this pregnancy.
I have to say - I am thoroughly enjoying my maternity leave - I am refusing to do anything except lie on my side reading books and snoozing while DD is in nursery until mid afternoon 3 days a week. Utter bliss.
VS - Am very unamused by the current situation is how I am. I am going to the hospital AGAIN tomorrow - the only positive note is that I have negotiated a birth plan I can live with with the SoM which goes along the lines of 'if this baby isn't out in two weeks, I'm serving an eviction notice and if, despite me apparently having the most badly behaved uterus in the history of womankind, I do go into active labour I can have a waterbirth, minimal monitoring, no doctors allowed within ten feet unless I bleed out blah blah blah.
What is going to happen now will depend entirely on whether the BP meds work. I've been in hospital every week now for the last four -and the food sucks as does the company - they are full of mewling babies and women who seem to think having a caesarian means staying in bed buzzing the midwives every time they need assistance to fart .
Have PMT from hell or something too - am really cross all the time, have permanent backache and wicked BHs which seem to be lasting for four minutes at a time. Oh and fat feet, but everything else is now really thin because I've lost all my excess water thanks to these stupid pills which are making my head hurt, and apart from having almost constant D&V from the tightenings I keep falling asleep for four hours at a time. Which would be nice if it didn't feel like I was about to explode at any time in a big puddle on the floor.
Moan, moan, whine etc.
You can see why I'm not posting much on here - far too depressing!
Do you remember Muttley from Wacky Races? That's what I'm like at the minute. DH is trying hard not to laugh at me swearing under my breath at everything. Babymoon? Pah! With a breastfed toddler and a new baby?
We run our own business which we have pretty much closed down until further notice except for clients we know won't mind if we cancel at the last minute. This baby is eagerly anticipated by quite a few folk desperate to make their albums! DD also got cited on quite a few record sleeves so to us this is fairly normal.
Taking DD to bed doesn't work really - she sleeps all day and stays awake all night whingeing if I do that. Mind you, she's a whingey little mare at the minute anyway because whatever mood I'm in, she copies
