Any Mommies with Gripes?

This board was so great for me while I was pregnant (had my LO in Feb this year). I enjoyed venting with the rest of the expecting mommies on this board and found so many of us had the same gripes.

Pregnancy and parenting can be so difficult when it comes to dealing with other people and how you have to interact with them. Check out our blog where we will discuss ongoing challenges!

I have a few gripes and i am sure I'm not alone in this, but I guess no one else wants to sound like pregnancy isnt so wonderful.
Don't get me wrong knowing that I have a little man growing inside me is the most amazing thing in the world but it really isnt all peaches and cream.
This pregnancy has been miserable. This is #2 for me and with DS1 i had a total of 4 stretch marks when he was delivered & with this one I feel like the whole bottom of my belly is covered with them - eww... I have had some mild acid reflux this time so eating or drinking before laying down is a complete no-no, which sucks when you are anemic and want to chew a whole cup of ice before bed every night.... Also a result of being anemic, I have been put on Iron supplements which have helped with the dizziness but omg I have never been constipated before in my life and it sucks(TMI)!!!!... The heat has made it impossible for me to play outside with energetic DS1 (3). So although I am being lazier this time around, I feel like this little man takes up all the room and half the time if we eat out i get a kids meal and struggle to get that eaten.
I love this LO to pieces and will do everything to make sure he is healthy but I am seriously ready to get my body, my energy, and my appetite back...
I'm sure there are other gripes but I wont get into them right now, instead I will give someone else a turn! The final count down is on and I have 32 days until EDD
