I'll feel better after I type this:

 These last few days I have really been in a lot of pain...not so much contractions like last week, but more like I just can't sit, stand, walk or lay down...that's allNothing is comfortable; in fact it's pure pain. My pelvic bones are shifting & keep popping in & out of place. All day today I kept getting stuck in certain positions & didn't know how to get myself out of them.

And when this boy stretches or pushes down, it literally takes my breath away...and I let out a little dog-like yelp. I am fairly small as it is, especially when it comes to my torso. I'm telling you there is no more room for him except maybe out & then I might just burst! I'm thinking he might come out giant! This sweet thing is down so low pushing as hard as he can against my pelvic, pubic, hip, tail & any other bone that I'm leaving out down there. I've been consistently on Tylenol. (I even called my Dad, a P.T. who is out of town & hard to reach right now, to see if there was anything I could do...He gave me a few suggestions.) He said I am most likely also having sciatic nerve pain. That's the real ouch!

I hurt! -crying tears I tell you. Am I not seriously bugging you yet with all my bellyaching?? Oh well...And Yes it feels better when I complain & even more when I get sympathy. Hey..even Tim has given me sympathy recently & that NEVER happens! 

*I have to keep reminding myself how long we waited for this baby & what a miracle he is. Just look at this face: Precious! Never did I think that this pregnancy I could be a whiny baby...but I am. Pregnancy emotions are not helping the situation either. Plus, all the fears of the dangers of the end, a husband out of town, & just getting up to answer the phone...Ahhh...another tear. 

And then I read this (from nienie)
& just couldn't feel sorry for myself any more!

Oh...I'm sorry Audra. It really stinks when you're so close to the end and your body just is all worn out. If you need help with anything please call me. I can be your maid servant while you sit back with a lemonade and make orders. :)

Carrie said...

Hang in there, Audra! I so remember those pains, and I have heard they just get worse the more kids we have! Aren't we so lucky??!! NieNie truly is an inspiration! Good luck with the rest of the pregnancy!

Oh you just made my day! I can't tell you how I feel like I've been saying such similar things for the past week..like a broken record. I'm tired of hearing myself complain at nights especially. If it helps, you just helped another fellow pregnant girl not feel so crazy. Hang in there! Not much longer till it will all be over and you will have that sweet boy in your arms instead of pushing on all your nerves and bones.

Becky said...

Audra I'm so sorry to hear that you're in such pain. Sounds miserable. We'll keep you in our prayers. Only a little longer. Hang in there.

Oh, Audy... Nothing I can say makes the pain go away or time go faster. You know, as we all do, it's soooo worth it, but that doesn't really help now. Almost done, almost done can be your mantra. Soon, you will forget all about this wicked discomfort!

Very soon you will be holding that little man in your arms....I am soooo sorry to hear what you are going through!! We all seem to have our "war stories" of pregnancy...but it's just so true that it is worth it - we sacrifice so much for our little ones to come in to this world, and we love them all the more for it!! Rest, rest, rest!!

It's all worth it I promise. Kind of funny. It was only 3 months ago and I've already forgotten, but seen how worth it it is. Good luck.

I had that with Carson and walked with a limp for months..it was wierd I had little control of my leg and couldn't sleep at night. It was like a stabbing pain. Mine went away. Yours looks like its there to stay...it will go away and you ..will have the cutest little baby in its place.You are sooooo close...can't wait to meet the little guy:)

Hey sweetie! I am so sorry! I can't even imagine what that would feel like (yet) but I am proud of you for sticking it out. You'll be blessed for all this pain, and you can come out of this experience stronger, both emotionally AND physically. I'll pray for you! Let me know if there's anything I can do from another state. :)

Ok i feel a TON better today (even though it's still terribly hard to walk & drive, and get in & out of the car) but I do feel like a brat for complaining so much. Man those pregnancy hormones make me feisty! :/

A day in the life of the Campbell's said...

Just a little longer and he'llbe here and it'll ALL be worth it. I would always wish that Brian could be hge and pregnant for 1 week just to walk in my shoes..but oh well, at least Tim has been sympathetic!

Hi Audy, I am so sorry, it has been 9 years since I have felt that pain, I had it a little with Kenz, but nothing like when I was preg. with Skyler, it was SOOOO bad, my pelvic bones ache just at the thought of it. I remember I told Jeremy I would race him to the car and I took about five fast paced steps and then it felt like my whole pelvic area literally shattered, I felt like I was going to die, I hunched over and I couldn't stand back up, I stood frozen whimpering. Jeremy wanted to get me back in the house, but I seriously stood frozen for like 10 minutes, he was debating calling 911, but eventually I made it down to all fours and crawled back into the apartment. From that moment on, I was in so much pain until Skyler was born, I remember lowering myself out of the bed adn literally crawling to the bathroom at night. Oh Audy, I can't wait utill your little miracle is here and you feel better, I love you!

Oh my gosh Audra, dont' send a pregnant hormonal girl to nienie's site with that post. I'm drowning in tears now. I need to shut up too...I just complain about how many rude comemnts I get...daily, but how blessed I am to have this huge belly. Ug! I'm a whore! Whatta brat! UG!! Seriously that's changed my day. Don't do that again, and thanks!
