I Don't Wanna Play Anymore

I don't really like to complain and rant, given my half-assed attempt at working the "Secret", but I am spent. It's over. There's nothing left. I know it's not news that being 38 weeks pregnant is tiring, but OMG it's tiring! With my last pregnancy at this stage in the game, I started my maternity leave and went home to just lie there for a while. Not really an option this time. Pumpkin is really, REALLY trying my patience today, or at least it seems as though she is. I just put her down for a nap and am praying that it lasts 3 hours. We had an early birthday party for her on the week-end given that I'll probably be in labour on her actual birthday, and I'm thinking that we overstimulated her. On a positive note, it was a pretty good party. Pumpkin doesn't have many friends since she hasn't been to school yet, so I just invited close friends and family of mine who came with an assortment of kids from age three to ten. Somehow, they all ended up playing together, which was unexpected. Nonetheless, I now have an overtired, over-spoiled kid who isn't listening. I also have a very nervous dog who was frazzled by all the people and the subsequent thunderstorms of the week-end, who now won't leave my side, and trips me up every time I turn around. I'm just too out of patience to deal with it today. Try me again tomorrow.

Oh how those last few weeks can just get to you eh. When I was pregnant with my second child I went on mat leave 2 weeks before my due date. I had full plans of leaving my oldest in day care so I could rest a bit. Well didn't he manage to get a nasty case of chicken pox and have to stay home with me. There was me, full term and cranky, with a 3.5 year old cranky from being all itchy and sick. It wasn't a pretty picture. Not how I had envisioned the last few weeks of my pregnancy.

I can't imagine how hard those last few weeks must be when you already have a toddler - HUGS!

My complete sympathies are with you. Sending you lots of hugs your way!

Ohhh... not looking forward to that part. My sympathies, but also my congratulations on pulling off a good brithday party when you mostly likely just feel like leaving for a good nap, instead.

It's hard when you can't walk away and leave the tired behind, huh?

Urban Daddy said...

Ooohhhh. It must be really tough. So sorry to hear that. I hope you have some support to allow you some time to rest. It doesn't get easier to find time to rest after baby comes, but you have a new-found energy that overcomes you and lasts for 3-4 months.

Good luck!

I'll try you again in 6 months, when things calm down a bit!

I can't imagine how hard it must be towards the end with an active little toddler to contend with.
hang in there...

hey at least it's no longer 1000 degrees outside
a mini reprieve from all the humidity.
