38 weeks with a BV and yeast infection- just ranting
RobynMia posted:
Ugh. This just seems to be going on and on. I am 38 weeks and still working 4 days a week (2.5 hour drive to and from work daily). I'm wiped. Today I went into the doctor- I'm 2 cm dilated. I have a BV and a yeast infection. The yeast is making me a bit nervous because the last thing I want to endure is thrush! Between the pressure and the infections I am swollen double in size.

This last week has been nothing but miserable. I've picked up a cold, a rash on my stomach and back, and 2 infections. Really?! Not to mention, I have had all sorts of menstrual like cramps and BH that are NOT painless. And, despite the fact that my little guy has dropped he has still managed to keep his little feet hanging in my ribs (which he has literally bruised).

I may just punch the next person that tells me to enjoy pregnancy. Sadly, I told my husband that I am looking forward to the hospital stay so I can get some rest.

Rant away! May I say, it sounds like you could use some extra rest, it sounds like your system is wiped out! How soon can you start your maternity leave? I understand wanting to wait as long as possible, but I bet you could really use some time to put your feet up before baby comes! Best wishes, Christina.

RobynMia replied to ChristinaTT's response:
Lol. Thanks, Christina and Iceechic!
The cold has moved to a bacterial infection. I guess it's a good thing I've been given antibiotics for the BV. That way I get to kill two birds with one stone!

I told my husband that I give up. My last day at work will officially be Tuesday, 11 Sept!!
