So here I am, posting at 11:00 pm! Why so late? It's not because I'm not tired, I am pretty tired, but I don't WANT to go to bed. Sleeping hurts. I start out laying on my left side, get all my pillows just perfect - I think I have like 4 or 5- then about an hour later, I wake up having to go to the bathroom. So, I try to sit up, which is very difficult at this point, lug myself off the side of my bed and go pee. Then I go back to bed, I have to switch sides because my hip/back/everything is hurting from laying on the one side. So then I have to redo all my pillows, not to mention when I lay down on my right side I get a pain in my side. It feels like an ovary pain, but I'm pretty sure it is round ligament pain because I'll push a little above the ovary area and it still hurts. Oh, I forgot, before I lie down I also have to drink water. So then I go back to sleep for about another hour and repeat. It's so fun. Last night I think I went for a stretch of 2 hours and I was so happy!
I think I forgot to mention that I have moved out my bedroom and my bed and moved into the bed in the nursery. My bed has a mattress that we just bought back in September. At the time, I loved it! But a couple nights ago I had the worst time sleeping and the mattress was just way too soft for me. I even contemplated sleeping on the floor! The bed in the nursery is firm and doesn't have a pillow top and is a lot lower to the floor, which is nice! So even though my back still hurts constantly, it hurts less than when I was sleeping in my bed. Hubby is somewhat glad I moved out too, because I took up the entire bed with all my pillows!
Since about Thursday or Friday, it has gotten really difficult. Constant pain and now I'm moving even slower than before, which I didn't think was possible! And honestly, I hate complaining because I know how lucky I am to be having twins! And I remember everything I went through to get to this point. It's just very difficult right now. I'd be ready for them to be out now, if it wasn't so early. Hubby told me to take it one day at a time, so I'm trying to do that and trying not to think about how many weeks are left.
The other frustrating thing was my Mother in Law. She always has comments to make, and hubby mentioned how he was working and doing everything at home too because I can't. Well, she wasn't too happy about that. She couldn't believe I wasn't helping out more! Well gee, it's not like I'm on vacation here! I'm pretty much homebound and can't do much at all! Hubby tried to explain to her that I was full term size a couple weeks ago, but I doubt she even remembers what that's like. All I know is, she better be prepared to help out when she comes to visit us! If not, oh boy, my temper is even worse now that I have all these hormones! I can only imagine what I might say if she makes me mad while she's here! Hopefully she will surprise me and help out, but we'll see.
