I am having a few issues over here that are leaving me confused, since the days before Dante was born were a blur even before I was presented with a tiny bundle of joy I had no idea how to take care of.
First, I am taking bathroom trips more frequently than usual. Not the kind we get credit for, the kind pregnant women NEVER get credit for. It hurts, since even though I have yet to truly be blocked, I still have the battle wounds, if you will. It strikes me as odd. I think I have evacuated more than I have consumed.
Second, I am even more tired than usual. I have been sleeping through alarms, snapping at poor Dante, and for the last couple of days, actually sleeping almost 3-4 hours between bathroom trips.
And can anyone actually remember what contractions feel like? Yesterday, I know I had a good few that made me feel like I was a tube of toothpaste getting to the end, just squeezed like no other. But yesterday during my non-stress test, one of the medical assistants couldn't believe that I couldn't feel the contractions that were showing up. Huh? I am very confused.
One more problem I've been having: mucous! Out of nowhere, it feels like there's a sneeze in my draws and it's making me a little nuttier than usual.
So, if you can weigh in, please do. And let's keep this discussion off Facebook since I have so many male friends, please!
