I think I'm having some full blown sciatic pain. I just want to start off saying my first pregnancy was a breeze. I wasn't begging to go into labor at the end; I felt just fine until the real contractions hit. But I had sciatic pain the entire pregnancy with Bumble Bee and was miserable in that aspect. I was ready for her to come!
One thing I've learned as a mother is that we don't give up! When we're sick or in pain we keep being a mom. I got so much done today, which makes me proud, despite the fact I couldn't get comfortable.
I am regularly not a light sleeper. But I have been sleeping so lightly recently that I feel like I never fall asleep. For one, I can't get comfortable. And two, I don't get up in the middle of the night to pee (I drink water up until my head hits the pillow, too). So I'm thinking that my full bladder in that early morning hour is what keeps me sleeping lightly.
But I feel like things are going great. I am not complaining so sorry if it does come off that way; I just want to be true to my symptoms and experience and sometimes the symptoms with pregnancy aren't all sunshine and rainbows. I don't feel grouchy or short-tempered. Though I do have to admit that I'm ready for some helping hands around here (*ahem*Daniel*ahem*) because my back probably can't handle the vacuuming or bending to put clothes in the dryer.
How are y'all feeling?!
