Pour Your Heart Out - Fire in the hole! (or the back of my throat!)

Shell over at Things I Can't Say hosts - Pour Your Heart Out. It is a place to just get whatever is weighing on your heart out. Please be kind to all of the posters.

I have been a really shitty (pardon my french!) blogging friend lately. I think I commented on about 10 blogs in the past three days. I have 3 baskets of clean laundry sitting waiting to be folded. There is a sink full of dishes still waiting to be washed. I stripped the bed and haven't put clean sheets on it yet. Can you see what I am getting at here?

I really want to be able to do all of these things. I'm really not a lazy person most of the time. Unfortunately for me though one of the biggie side effects of the second trimester has kicked in with a vengeance. Before Jellybean I had never in my life had heartburn or indigestion. I'm not kidding you. I actually had to ask Joey what it was when I first felt it to verify if that was what I had. For the past week I have barely slept at night thanks to it. Before you ask - yes I have attempted to identify what triggers it... Pretty much any food or drink - really narrows the possibilities of eliminating it down. I am currently sitting straight up which is supposed to help it and I can feel the back of my throat burning. For those of you with GERD - my heart goes out to you. I could never deal with this on a daily basis my whole life. I would go certifiably insane.

So thanks to indigestion I am also exhausted like you wouldn't believe. My greatest accomplishment this week was getting to the grocery store - where I stocked up on a ton of microwaveable meals because there is no way I can make Joey his lunches right now. I have also managed to walk the dog and feed the pets. THAT IS IT! I wish I could bitch and moan about Joey not helping me out but he has been working every night after his real job in order to earn us some desperately needed extra money. I can't argue with that. I honestly have no idea what I have been getting accomplished at work this week. I know I am getting stuff done but even there I feel so incredibly unproductive. Being away over the weekend really messed my schedule up since as a general rule I have more energy in the mornings and that is when I usually get my chores done. Hopefully, Saturday I'll get caught up on everything and get back to my usual blogging, commenting, somewhat energetic self.

Til then - bear with me. Oh and send some Tums!

Oh girl, I really do feel for you. It's no fun at all. Gaviscon helps me - lots and lots and LOTS of Gaviscon - do you have that over there?

In a years time though, you're probably not going to care that you didn't manage to comment on blogs. It's not going to matter whether the laundry got folded, the sheets were clean or your house was dusted, because Jellybean will be here and all the side effects of the waiting period will be worth it.

Keep on keeping on, you'll get there.

Just calm down girl! You're prgnant, relax. Take care of you and that jellyboy! I know it's touch but try to enjoy your pregnancy cause you'll miss it when it's gone.
I never really had heartburn either before pregnancy. It wasn't super bad though but enough to annoy me at night. You might wanna try prevacid. Worked awesome for me and it actually tasted good unlike those chalky tums :)

I am with the others on this one, cut yourself some slack. I know us ladies are never very good at doing that, but sometimes we just gotta relax.

Cut yourself and break. It's okay not to get everything done.

I had heartburn with my third baby- never had it before in my life and didn't have a clue what it wa at first. Lived on tums!

Once you see that baby all this will seem like small beans.

Enjoy this time, you can't get it back.

Mine are older and I sometimes miss them living in my body, the baby stage, the toddler stage, yet no matter how much I miss it I can't get it back. I can however enjoy these new moments with them. Counting each as a blessing.

Like everyone has said, cut yourself some slack. You are pregnant. Life isn't what you're used to when you are. Things will get back to normal but for now, don't stress. Your bloggy friends are always here. No worries if you can't post/comment enough. You and family come first. Take care girl. xoxo

I hope you feel better, you shouldn't be so hard on yourself. You are busy making another person!
