A Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day


You know those days when everything just seems to go wrong? Yesterday was just one of those days for me. I know I should be so extremely excited at this point in time....just 8 weeks left till my baby's due!!! And I am so excited about that. Work was pretty normal, but I was not in a good mood, so all the normal little annoyances that happen at work I took pretty hard yesterday. I started crying at least twice at work. All this hormone stuff is so much fun! :) I had a terrible headache, and just my luck, all the Tylenol we had at work was gone. I haven't yet stocked any in my purse just in case I need it, so I just had to live with it until I went home after 6. I had a doctor's appointment which should have been just a really quick check-up. Well, it was a quick check-up when we finally made it into the back...but we had to wait in the waiting room for almost 45 minutes! Then my normal nurse had called in sick for the day. Not really a problem, but it was just another thing that threw me off yesterday. And the doctor said I'm starting to get carpel tunnel. Apparently it's something some pregnant women get....and hopefully it'll go away after the baby is born. My hands have just been bugging me for a little while now. My fingers will go numb, and I can't grip things very well with my right thumb anymore. It hasn't become a huge problem yet, just an annoyance so far. Hopefully it doesn't get any worse! And I've decided that, at least for me, headaches cause me to be totally irrational and over-sensitive about everything. The really bad ones at least. Hooray for Tylenol! I took two as soon as I got home, and the world seemed to be a better place. After that and a bowl of ice cream of course. :) Here's hoping for less days like this for everyone!

Sorry you had a bad day, hope it's getting better now that you're home!
Do you guys want to go to the parade tomorrow?

Here's to hoping you keep feeling better and better. I had the same thing going on with my hands when I was pregnant and it's gone now, so don't worry.

Oh, I hear ya! I still remember when I posted a post about all the things that I 'loved' about being pregnant (with a lot of my favorite sarcasm present)...Yah, being prego is not my favorite. But, you just wait! that little baby is SOOOOOO worth it!!!

I'm sorry to hear about the carpel tunnel. Yuck. I hope it's better soon. And I know what you mean about headaches. I do the same thing. When I have a headache (pregnant or not) I'm just plain not at my best. Ok, so I'm usually at my worst. Doh. At least you have ice cream around to help the happy feelings return. :)

Yuck! I'm sorry about your bad day! Yes, being pregnant can make other little things HUGE annoyances. And I hear you about the headaches--I cannot function at all if I have a headache. I got carpel tunnel with Mierae. I had to buy a hand brace--you may want to check into that and see if it helps you at all.

Ew, I'm so sorry, Char! Those days are no fun--ESPECIALLY when you're pregnant. Glad you finally got some Tylenol and ice cream in your system. :) Hope you're doing better now! Can't believe you only have 8 WEEKS LEFT.
