The Dark Side of Pregnancy

Today is just NOT MY DAY. At all. I am sitting here at my desk, feeling so uncomfortable. My lower back hurts because my chair is a jank ass POS, and to top that off I am constipated and that’s putting more pressure and making the discomfort even worse. I’m tired and have a stuffy head/nose, and just feel worn out.

In addition, my BITCH factor is maxed out today. I don’t know what the hell my problem is, but ALL DAY I have been just a pain in the ass, straight up bitch. Everyone who has come into my vicinity (save for my husband) has probably warranted the look of death from me. I swear, if I could shoot lasers from my eyes this entire building and everyone in it would probably be incinerated by now. My coworkers are driving me insane, I want to throw something heavy at every customer I see and every time I phone rings I want to scream.

I love being pregnant, but DAMN! It sure does do some strange and unpleasant things to your body and mind sometimes. I’m seriously contemplating trying to get out of here a bit early today. I’m not doing any work because I’m so tired and just so over it (there’s not really much for me to do right now anyway) and could really use a hot shower and a nap. I have to go sing with the chorus tonight (already committed to it) and it would be nice to rest and relax before going out to stand and sing for 45 minutes.

Maybe I’ll try and make it to 3:00 or so before bailing.

On a slightly more humorous note, I just got an e-mail from the March of Dimes that said, “Protect Your Baby From Pertussis”, but I hastily read the headline as, “Protect Your Baby From Prussians”.

Colds, Indifference, A Few Days to Go

I’ve been sick with a cold since Saturday night. Stuffy nose, congestion, coughing, etcetera. I stayed home sick from work yesterday, but came in today. I thought I was feeling better but the longer I’m awake the more I realize I’m not feeling as well as I’d originally thought.

I’m really irritable and cranky, which is probably due to the fact that AF is due Saturday on top of the fact that I don’t feel well. Yes folks, I’m one of those pain-in-the ass people that gets cranky and surly when I’m sick. Guilty as charged.

I’ve had a bad morning, which in retrospect probably wasn’t really that bad but it only seemed like it thanks to my Hulk-like feelings right now.

I feel really drained of energy, I still have the sniffles and I’m slightly loopy in the head. I haven’t taken any cold medicine, I just think the congestion is making my brain slow. I’m also very hungry. One of the highlights of my morning was dropping the last half of my Slim Fast bar on the ground. I could have screamed. Oh, and I think my coffee pot is broken because the coffee this morning was just awful.

Not really feeling any IPS, I don’t put much stock in them, anyway. When it finally does happen, I probably won’t believe I’m pregnant until I see at least 10 BFPs.

AF is due Saturday, so we’ll see what we see.
