So, today is the day when nothing is good. I think I've officially hit the stage where everything sucks. I don't want to go anywhere, do anything, see anyone, eat anything, talk to anyone... you get the picture. I'm incredibly restless and, well, just plain bored. I know I have things I should be doing (so many things I *should* be doing) but I have absolutely no interest in doing any of them. I just want to sit and argue with my husband. And occasionally throw coasters at him.
I called a friend who recently had a baby, and she reassured me that this happened to her, too. I don't seem to remember this happening with the Bear, but I was so damn depressed the entire time I was pregnant with her, I don't think that my recollections count for much, really. I just want to curl up and hibernate and not think about anything. For at least 7 weeks. Can I do that? Please?
On a similarly irritating note, everyone I see seems to think that I'm not going to hold out for another 7 weeks. They keep asking me if I'm sure I got my dates right (yes, moron, I *can* count), if I'm having twins (no, jackass, not anymore), etc. etc. etc. ad nauseum ad infinitum. Yes, this baby is carrying a lot differently than the last one. Yes, this baby is decidedly lower and perhaps a bit larger than the last one. No, I haven't gained nearly as much weight this time. Yes, the baby is already so low that the midwife couldn't find her head last week because it was already below the bone. But is she going to do us all a gigantic favor and get the hell out of there anytime soon? Of course not. Why? Because she's my kid, and being difficult is her genetic birthright.
So, is it just me? Has anyone else ever gone through the pregnancy phase where everything is just supremely annoying and you're all restless for no apparent reason? Or have I officially gone around the bend on this one? I know that delurking week is over, but if you have any words (of wisdom or otherwise, I don't care) on this subject, I'd be eternally grateful. Cause I think Husband is ready to divorce me any minute now...
