I'm Melting. . . I'm melting

I feel as though I'm wasting away. I do my best to keep busy around the house. But not working is killing me. I have heard a lot of people say things like, "oh, I would give anything to stay at home and do nothing" or "you are so lucky" or "take advantage of it. This time will never come again."

BUT all I want to do is scream. I've become more and more irritable and ornery. (my poor husband)

I want a job - baby coming asap and it's probably just not a good idea.

I want to exercise - my favorite time of year to boost my exercise regimen and I can't. . .YET.

I want to be involved - again, I don't want to commit to something that in days or weeks I can't fulfill because I'm a recovering mother from the birthing process.

I know. I know. I "shouldn't" complain. "It will all be worth it" right? (I swear, if I hear one more person say that they will probably get a fist in the face.)


I thought that I needed some lightening up. So, I changed the background of my blog. What do you think? Hopefully it will help.


Maybe this orneriness is just hormones. Maybe it will go away. Do you think?

Kudos on the background change. I like.
I've come to the conclusion that people just say really stupid things sometimes.

A. You're entitled to 'complain' at this point.
B. If they don't like it they should kiss off and stop listening
and C. Don't they know to not piss off the mama?
Good luck with delivery. I expect pics up ASAP. :)

sorry steph, hang in there....only a few more weeks. As much as it sucks to not be able to do anything until the precious little one comes, some people can't be a mom without a Dr's help. (me) I would take your misery anyday!

I know. That's the only time I feel guilty about complaining is when I think of the many women who really want to have kids and are dealing with complications.

Really I have had a great pregnancy. No real problems. I even get 8 hours of sleep with usually no interruptions. I have just passed the holiday business and have sewn all the things I can think of. (within my ability-straight lines people) I am in the waiting/boredom stage. You know the one where you don't feel like you can start anything because it will be interrupted, but you don't want to sit on your butt letting the darkness fill up around you.

I've never been here before and I don't quite know how to cope.

Take some pictures of yourself right now and start that baby book. Oh and go through the list and make sure you have all those "little" things that you won't have time to go out and buy. Maybe even a couple of new movies that you can watch while you're nursing. Love ya! Mom
