Not so new fun pregnancy symptom

I say not to so new because it's not like I haven't had this before, but over the past week, I've been experiencing incredible amounts of gas and gas pain, along with awful nausea at night.

It is uncool, I tell you. The nausea is interrupting what little sleep I already get. So now it's more like, if I'm lucky, a half hour of sleep followed by waking up with hip pain or to pee, and then spending a half hour trying to ignore the nausea and falling back to sleep, only to awake another half hour later.

But the positive side of this is that he's coming within 3 weeks! (because they won't let me go more than 1 week past my due date and they do inductions on Thursday and Fridays, usually). So...he's almost here! Which means I'm so close to being not pregnant again, ever! ;)

Am I nervous? Only when I watch One Born Every Minute and the women scream at the top of their lungs to GET IT OUT RIGHT NOW!!!! But really, I'm so, so, so anxious to be not pregnant anymore, that I'm not afraid!

I had a dream last night my water broke. I was SO EXCITED. Then I woke up to pee, and realized it didn't. So disappointed. Like a really great sex dream you wake up in the middle of.

  1. I was about to IM you just to tell you that I have horrible airbubbly gas pains today and I don't know why. But then I realized I should not be complaining about anything to you! :-)
    But now I know why... sympathy gas, I has it!

    And, not that I would EVER in a bazillion years wish the pain and discomfort that you've been in on you... it is almost kind of a good thing that you've been so miserable, because its taken a lot of the fear of labor away, because you're just wanting to get it over with so badly! :-)

    3 weeks, I can't believe it myself!

  2. Aw, you can complain to me! :) I relish complaints from other people, makes me feel less bad about being a constant complainer myself.

    I'm sorry you have awful gas! It's the worst!

  3. I know! Because it's not coming out at all.. no toots or poots or nothing!
