I Need a Nap!

I feel awful 99% of the time; the other 1% I actually get to sleep! I know pregnancy is not supposed to be a walk in the park and it's very VERY fortunate that I actually get to experience it....but it really stinks sometimes.

Today, we went to the hospital because I was sure "this was it" and Jaimee was nice enough to keep Sean. When we got there, the contractions were intermittent b/c I was dehydrated. I am dilated to a 3 and 70% effaced and it didn't change after 1 hr so they sent us home. I feel like a wimp! It didn't help that Mike was really excited and kept saying, "I know this is it!" It also didn't help that the way I was feeling was not displayed on their little "contraction" machine. I feel constant back pain, pressure like crazy, and I am HUGE! I am always sweating like I just ran a marathon, my face always shows how much sleep I get (none!) no matter how hard I try to hide it, and I now feel like an idiot for even thinking "this was it!" I feel like I should already know exactly what to expect b/c I have done it before- but my water broke at a 3 with Sean, I got an epidural at like a 5.

So, we drive home with me wanting to stop to eat something really really fatty but of course, it's Sunday! I'm in tears all day- and nothing went right for the rest of the day! I like to bake when I'm stressed so I tried to make cinnamon rolls (no yeast) tried to make peanut butter bars (no chocolate frosting) tried to make bread (no flour!) AND to top it ALL off- they announced in Relief Society that I was in labor- dang it! Now everyone knows I'm an idiot:)

Oh well, life goes on. At least, I know the little guy is doing very well!

No need to comment- I don't really want pity (except from Mike)! You guys are all so nice all the time anyway. I have awesome neighbors, friends, and family!

I will respect your wishes and not send you pitty EXCEPT to say if you need to borrow flour or yeast give me a call! I can run some over or take Sean for an afternoon for you.

BTW: Nobody thinks you're an idiot. We've all been there at the "false alarm" stage. No worries.

Yeah, I got sent home two different times with Emma before the real thing. So humiliating. And frustrating. And who-are-you-to-tell-me-my-contractions-don't-hurt...ing.

Um, I am going to comment...
1. I probably would have mad Aaron stop and get something fatty, yep I will probably go to h*%#$.
2. I have everything you needed...will you please call next time.
3. You're not an idiot...they probably should not have announced such things.
4. I love you to death!!I will even rub your back for you...tennis balls work miracles!

I swore my water broke 3 weeks early, but after heading to the hospital and meeting my in-laws there cuz they needed to take the dog at 10:30 at night, I was told that my water had in fact not broken and that it's normal to have stuff running down your leg for the whole last month. Sorry for the details, but you are definitely not alone. It really does suck.

Uh, I really like you, your overexcited husband, your crazy little head butting toddler, and little unamed in the belly! So if you ever want to vent, just let me know!

Jaimee said...

No pity from me, just a reminder that I love ya and to have a false alarm anytime because we LOVED having Sean over!!!

You are FUNNY! No one is as humble as you are Lori. I bet since you're already at a 3 you'll go today. So this comment doesn't really mean anything... Love ya! See you in the hospital :)

Julia said...

Oh, Lori! How miserable! Those last few weeks and days feel like months! I really hope you get to have that baby soon. I wish I EVER felt like baking these days. ;)

You should come see the puppies before they're gone! I'll be home most of the day tomorrow and Sunday. I don't know if you're up to it being on your last days and all... but there's the invitation!

Kiley said...

Thanks for reminding me that I could look at your blog. I love it (I'm glad you're really getting induced on Friday). It was good to see you yesterday! Good luck with the last few days!
