Noodle - November 2

im 34 weeks pregnant and have had severe spd since i was 17 weeks. I find it so painful to move i cry most of the time. i cantturn over and can barely wipe myself after using the loo (sorry tmi). i have to use crutches and my husband seems like he just doesnt understand how much pain im in. he says oh well your ok your used to it. i was rushed into hospital as i had severe epigastric pains, and headaches, blurred vison, and swelling.my blood pressure and protein levels are normal - so it wasnt pre eclampsia. but i am actually a bit gutted. because yesterday when i came home and didnt know my results, my husband actually did the housework, and he let me rest, and i felt like finally i have some understanding that im not well and cant do everything. but i feel dissappoinment that now i have my results its just going to go back to what it was. i have a 19 month daughter and i find it hard enough just sorting her out, and i just cant stop crying. i really wish i had pre eclampsia - am i wrong?

I don't know what spd is, but it sounds like you're in bad shape. I know how you feel about wishing you had pre-eclampsia - that's not wrong of you, it's just easier soemtimes to deal with something when you know what it is, and you know how to help yourself. Since you don't have it, it's like you just have to deal with it! And that really sucks. I have not had anything like what you are going through, but I have started to have tremendous sciatic pain, and my Dr. basically said I need to deal with it, that there's nothing i can really due beyond some simple exercises and tylennol, which doesn't help at all. But the difference with me is that my DH has been incredibly helpful. I can't believe your DH is making you even lift a finger. He should let you rest as much as possible. Do you talk to him about it? I mean not just yell and complain, but really explain to him how uncomfortable you are? Maybe if he came with you to the doctor. My DH became much more understanding after we took a pre-birthing cla__s and he saw diagrams of how squished up my insides were and what my sciatic nerve is and why it hurts so badly. Since that cla__s, he has been wonderful to me. Maybe your DH just needs to be more educated on what's happening with you. I hope you find a way to feel better, but don't get too down on yourself. It'll all be over soon, and you'll have a beautiful little baby to help you forget about how bad this part was.
