Hot Mess

Are you ready for this? The ultimate brain dump of all my brain dumps??? The truth is, I'm a mess right now. Yup, a genuine mess.

I can't keep a thought in my head.

I have dark circles under my eyes that are no match for any concealer known to man.

I'm uncomfortable at any given minute of the day or night.

I don't sleep well.

I have to pee every 5 minutes. (wish I was exaggerating)

My socks cut into my swollen calves by about 8:00am, I start cinching them down throughout the day and by the time I take them off I have a severe indentation around my ankles from the elastic. Therefore, I hate socks.

I hate pants.

I hate bras.

I'm ravenously hungry.

I have no patience.

I temporarily have lost my sense of humor.

My chair at work is broken so every time I sit down it "deflates" from the setting I have it at and falls all the way to the bottom. Suggesting that I'm "too heavy" for the setting I want it at. It's a very cruel and evil chair.

I ate a burrito last night with super spicy green chili in line with the "wives tale" that eating super spicy food can kick-start labor. I was left with heartburn and an upset stomach. Who are these "wives" anyway and where do they get off making up such lies!!!!

I'm sick of waiting. Period.

I'm aware I am being over dramatic and annoying but I don't care. I'm allowed. I've earned this right to complain. Yes, I'm lucky to be pregnant at all. I'm grateful for being full term. I'm blessed to have had two decent pregnancies. I am not taking any of this for granted and I hope you all know that about me by now.

It's just that I'm so very pregnant and so ready not to be. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to adjust my chair, my socks, my bra, my pants, eat my weight in cookies, choke back "no good reason" tears, and get back to being miserable.

Peace out.

  2. Ohhhh, Kendra--I just saw this. I hope you are well on your way in labor now and these days are behind you!
