    Stressed out- wedding-prego pains

    Morning ladies, sorry but ive got to vent, and i'm sure most can relate in some way. Im 17 weeks pregnant and with my second and this LO has put pressure on the nerve in my back so my hips get shooting pains if i move wrong. its got a name but i forget it, but its crippling at times. with that trouble i have to chase after my 2 year old who's most defiantly into the horrid 2's.
    Its 4 days til my wedding, my dress still is NOT here. I have all of our family joining us on Tuesday. its a low budget wedding and im organizing and paying for everything. Ive been planning for months, food, flowers, invites and yet i planned for an outdoor wedding. But gotta love the Montana weather! its supposed to rain! i wanna go curl up in a corner and cry but ive gotta keep a happy face.
    The only thing that keeps me happy is when i can feel my LO move. already i feel little kicks and movement and cant help but smile.

    sorry to vent but its all so stressful and i cant wait for the wedding to be over at this point. Thats what i get for trying to please everyone! at least i get to see my family. /sigh

    I know EXACTLY what you're going through. I just got married on the 23rd and had similar experiences. 1st call or track where your dress is, if you are not able to do that call the company and see what your options are. I know you want your dress but if worse comes to worse they HAVE to provide you with a temporary gown. Secondly. You cant control the weather, so dont stress yourself out over it. Do you have a backup plan? Is there a close by venue you could possibly use? And thirdly. Im a pharmacy student, I know the symptoms youre talking about but cant remember the name either (due to this pregnancy I seem to forget quite a bit of what Ive learned lol) try getting a body pillow from walmart ( $10) while asleep it relieves the pressure on the nerves allowing for less pain throughout the day. Hope this works for you.If you have any questions feel free to contact me !

    no i ordered it online so they dont have to give me a filler dress. im SOL if its not in by today to have it fitted. I also didnt plan for bad weather because its normally 70-80 by now and no chance of rain. i did rent a covered area for the lunch after but its not really set up for the niceness of vows. As for the pillows ive already got a stack of them for just that, but not a full body pillow. oddly its when i move my hips to fast or in an odd direction, that or when i get up wrong. lol one day i will look back and laugh right?

    well today is my wedding day and i already wanna kill one of my in-laws. I think that may be the real reason we are supposed to get married before hand lol cus im sure the hormones dont help. But what can i do? she is his sister who is a vile, ignorant and vain little wench and i cant stand her, but i cant tell her she cant come or the family will be pissy with me. so much for anything about my wedding being about what i want! that and its raining, cold and i have no idea who is coming because of that. can i go cry now?

    thank you for your support. it went alright. nothing like i planned or wanted, but we ended up having fun seeing family and friends. but i couldnt help but completely ignore his sister and attempted to give her the cold shoulder of unwelcome, but shes too stupid to catch on. i mean if you were not invited shouldnt have that been a clue in its self? Baa cant stand people like that. anyway thank you and now i get to look forward to the second US on the 5th to see if we get a baby boy or girl ^_^
