Feeling Down

What a crappy weekend for me.... I have been feeling very crabby and down the past few days. I have also been inclined to eat anything in sight. I am not even sure if I am hungry, but I feel like I have to have "that" to eat when I see something yummy. I need to get myself in check with this! I really do not want to gain a bunch more weight. I have already gained more than I wanted. This can definitely bring the mood down :/

With the crabbiness I have been trying to keep it to myself. I do not want to be "one of those pregnant girls" that is crabby and bitchy throughout her pregnancy. I have felt great up until a few days ago. I was only getting into these moods once in a while and now I feel like I am stuck in a rut. Yesterday I painted my toenails and I was exhausted after because it was so hard to bend to reach them. I am only 27 weeks! Why do I feel like a tub tub now?
I did manage to get them painted though - that is a plus
The one thing that is bugging me that I know really should not bug me, but it does is my baby shower. I am the type of person that feel bad when people do stuff for me. I have been good with the shower and not asked too many questions and let others plan it, but I wanted to be there to help set up so I did not feel like I was taking advantage of people. I know that they are doing it out of love and because they want to, but this is just how I feel when others do things. I was told that I could not help and I am down about that. Why? Good question. I am afraid that if I do not help do something I will feel bad during the whole shower. I wonder where this comes from? I have always been like this. I feel like I do not deserve all of this and I should have to help.

What a downer post huh? Geesh

Here is a picture of me last night after an almost meltdown because I could not find something to wear that I felt looked good.
I may be smiling there for the picture, but I was a mess before this. I am really trying to enjoy this pregnancy, but I am starting to get uncomfortable. My hips hurt when I am sleeping because I am sleeping on my side. My ear on the side I am sleeping on hurts because I do not move much during the night. It is hard to get comfortable and then when I do I have to go to the bathroom. I got up three times last night for a bathroom run.

I must say that I do feel better after getting those feeling out and expressed. Thanks for reading! I promise the next post will not be so mopey (word? who knows)

  1. Aw Ashlee.. cheer up! It feel like it's too early for me to have mood swings but I'm feeling pretty down lately too. I know what you mean about the shower. Everyone wants to pamper you. Do your best to relax and just enjoy it! On another note, I hope this isn't creepy but you have super adorable toes. Hahah. I know I said it on facebook but you seriously look fantastic! I got up to pee 4 times last night. I can't fall back asleep for the life of me! UGH!

  2. I know what you mean about the shower!! I feel helpless not being allowed to help or do anything. At least you know they are doing it out of love and you will have a blast! Let someone else pamper you because you will have a lot on your plate when baby boy comes!!!

    Sorry about the mood swings! I have no advice for those bad boys!
