The One In Which I Complain

If you’re TTC, feel free to skip right over this, because I’m about to be ungrateful.


My head hurts and Tylenol is a placibo.

My back hurts and Tylenol is a placibo.

I walk like a duck.

I climb stairs like someone who really needs to jump on the spaceship in the movie “Cacoon.”

My belly feels like I binged on something.  Lots of something.  But I didn’t.  Oh, it looks like that, too.

I’m tired.

I’m jet-lagged.

And Tylenol is just a big fat lie.

I would love a margarita. Doc said I could have wine once a month, but I haven’t taken her up on it yet.  I don’t know that I will.  Another day like this and I probably will.
Thanks for listening.  Sorry for whining.

  1. It’s ok to whine. I don’t mind it a bit. Hope you feel better soon love. Maybe you can get A to give you a good head/foot massage tonight. xo

  2. dude, same boat. only add allergies that benadryl and sudafed to not alleviate. and a tailbone that i’ve begun calling “the tb”.

    my glass of wine a couple times a week has been salve.

    and my midwife recommended ibuprofen every once in awhile if tylenol isn’t doing shit. she said you need to take it for more than a day at a large dose every few hours for it to thin your blood. so you might want to break down and take 400mg or so.

    we will overcome.

    funny that your doc said once a month about the wine. i never bothered to ask my doctor, but took the advice of several friends/acquaintances who are MDs who said a glass (even two!) once or twice a week is a-okay. i found i appreciated wine MUCH more when my consumption was limited.

  4. I am so there with you.

    Must get good sleep soon or I’m going to go insane.

    Treat yourself to a nice glass of wine this weekend!

    whine and wine go great together. once a month?!? that’s crazy talk, ask anyone who lives in europe. you can have a glass as long as you’re having something to eat with it. no one likes a drunk pregnant girl!

  6. I agree that Tylenol is a joke. A big fat (and cruel!!) joke! Hang in there…

  7. so this is what I have to look forward to? I wouldn’t trade it for the world and I’m sure you wouldn’t either… but good luck anyway.
