I don't know if I can do this

Postby megan6912 » Mon Sep 02, 2013 7:44 am

I'm only 32 weeks so shouldn't be complaining, but laying in a hospital bed all day and having constant contractions are making me so miserable I just woke up today and cried. I can't believe the difference a month makes, at 28 weeks when I first got here I was having fun shopping online and enjoying being able to rest and relax on doctors orders. Now I just want these babies out!! It's way to early to be feeling this miserable right!?!? If I sit up, my back hurts, if I lay down my hips hurt. Thankfully I'm in the home stretch. I should be getting 1 more round of steroids this week and then home in 2 weeks (if my doctor lets me and doesn't induce). He is pretty strict about not letting me get past 36 weeks, and said that at 35 weeks I may get the choice of inducing since I will have been on bedrest for 7 weeks at that point with contractions everyday. We have had to stop ptl 4 times now cause my body just wants to contract. 3 weeks. I can do 3 weeks. Heck once I get to 35 weeks maybe I will feel like super woman and extend it a few more days. 36 weeks is my husbands med school midterm so that day is out and at this point I'm done being a pregnant woman and I want to get back to being a mom to my toddler. That's my rant. Oh and I can't even have cake or cookies brought in to make me feel better cause I have GD and I can't have any meds to make the contractions stop cause I have SVT. Anyway, I guess I better get off of here and get busy doing nothing at all except sit here. As soon as I recover from having these babies I'm gonna go sit in a hot tub for a couple days.

That must be soo hard and so uncomfortable. Have you watched a lot of Netflix? I think that would be my go to for a time killer. Just blow through various seasons of tv shows. It gets boring, but it's better than just sitting there. If you need recommendations, I watch way too much tv and can list off a ton of them.

So sorry you're having such a hard time. Your doing great though and hopefully the next couple weeks will fly by. And it will all be worth it and a distant memory once you have your sweet babies in your arms!! I have no experience with what you're going through, but we are all here if you need to vent. I second the Netflix, I think it would help pass time and some seasons are so addictive.

I was pretty miserable at 32 weeks as well. That's when my pre-e was starting so I guess that had a lot to do with it but I kept thinking about how bad it could be if I had the babies early but at the same time I was ready to feel better. I don't have much advice since I went into labor the day I was put on bedrest but I hope the next few weeks fly by! I know it doesn't feel that way now but those babies won't be inside you forever. Eventually they will come out!

Complain away! You are in a very hard place right now! I was getting pretty miserable by 32 weeks myself. That's when things really started to hit me. GD, swelling, only sleeping 45 mins at a time...etc, etc. I can't imagine how hard it must be to be on hospital bed rest. My heart goes out to you!

Megan, you CAN do it!!! You've been doing it for a month already and you only have a few more weeks before they send you home or those babies arrive. I feel miserable every day but I get to be at home, so I can only imagine how you must feel. Just hang in there, your little girls will be here before you know it! Thinking of you, KUP.

I am so sorry mama. HUGS! You CAN do this. 32 weeks is when I started getting SUPER miserable, you're right on cue. Hang in there. Sending you lots or T&Ps. Also, check the Q&A Sticky it has some advice for bedrest mamas!
