My bladder is crying

I dread bedtime. I know it’s going to be filled with pain, discomfort, having to get up and crawl to the bathroom at least 5 times during the night, stuffing pillows in between my legs, having to wake Tony up to push me over on my other side, blahblahblah… And now the baby is so big, she shreds my insides when she starts kicking.
I’m thinking she needs to come early. No way I can do this another 5 weeks. Just NO WAY.
I just want to sleep. And I can’t. Damn.

    🙁 Sorry, hon. Just hang in there a little bit longer. It’ll all be worth it in the end.
    Sorry you’re in so much discomfort!

    Here’s where I have been having a major concern:
    I remember early on in this pregnancy when you were having quite a bit of problems with your doctor’s office getting an appointment when you have some initial problems. They were saying stuff like you couldn’t get in for another month, or when you inadvertantly missed an appointment when you were going the first time, they said they had nothing for like another six weeks, etc. They sounded like they weren’t really on top of the situation, or didn’t care, or both, and I remember people telling you to go to another doctor. Lately, as I’ve been reading you, and I am NOT saying this to frighten you or upset you, it seems to me that what might be in order is some form of bedrest, something certainly not unheard of among many women in the later stages of their pregnancy. You seem to be going through too much pain to be walking around for another five weeks. I know you’re thinking, “WHAAAT??? Lay around in bed for FIVE WEEKS?? Who the hell is going to do anything around here???” But that is all unimportant at this point. What does the doctor think about this incredible amount of pain you’re having?
    I mean, sure, discomfort is totally normal but pain like you are describing probably isn’t something you should be walking around with. I wish for your sake you would demand an appointment and express this in no uncertain terms to your doctors. By now you should be probably starting to have a weekly appointment anyway.
    I’m wondering too, how much are they calculating she’s going to weigh?

    Yeah, why is your doctor being such a dick about your appointments? You ought to just go in and make a scene until they do something for you. Or switch. Hope your agonizing bladder pain relents soon. Or you could ask Tony to get you a shiny new chamber pot. Yuck. That wasn’t nearly as funny as I thought it would be.

    Yeah Melly, I thought about that too after I sent it. I totally empathize and understand the situation with two kids under eleven or so and another kid over 30. That is truly rough and I totally feel bad for her, but I wish she could get some rest.

    Doctor’s are dicks because they have NO frikkin clue what’s going on, I swear.
    And Yvonne, hang in there girl. The only thing that gets me through now is thinking about her chubby little face. If I don’t, I think I’d curl up and cry from the pain.
    Here’s to hoping your 5 weeks go VERY VERY quickly. 🙂

    I personally enjoy that feeling, once I get BACK to the bed after 100 trips before I can fall asleep, I get this “rushing” urgey type feeling….then I rush back to the bathroom and piddle out 1 whole drop.
    Wash, rinse, repeat every 10 minutes…

    Hey Yvonne, been reading you for a while now…The last few weeks are the hardest but just hang in there and it will be over soon and you will be STILL up all night and STILL longing for sleep.
