I'm going to complain a little (a lot)

For the past 9 months, I have had a delightful pregnancy. I did not experience morning sickness, food cravings or aversions, back pain, etc. As of 3 days ago, that has all ended. I would describe myself as a miserable human being.
All of my problems surround the fact that I am UNCOMFORTABLE. I cannot find a position that works for me- I am dying sitting in this chair at the computer right now! Sleeping sucks- I am usually a hard sleeper: head to pillow, I'm out. Not so much anymore. I venture from our bed to the couch, and finally I think I just pass out because I'm so sick of being awake and uncomfortable. Seriously, I wish I could explain the degree of discomfort I am feeling. It is horrible.
I also have had a headache for the past 2 days- one that surrounds my head like a halo and sometimes pounds with the beating of my heart - it's awesome.
The last part of this rant has to do with the fact that I am driving myself crazy with un-motivation. I do not want to do anything but try to find a comfortable spot to sit down and close my eyes. Not nap per say, just be still and quiet with the hope of being comfortable. If you know me, you know that I am a doer. I NEVER sit around. I am always cleaning or organizing or outside, walking, yadda yadda, you get it. Not so much now. Today's big goal is for me to strap the car seat base in the car. Usually, this is a quick chore that takes maybe 15 minutes. Not for this gal- I am hoping above hope I can get my ass out there to do it! I also have a washing machine full of wet laundry waiting to get to the dryer- it's been in there for about 1 hour, which totally annoys me. I want some energy please!

Ok- I'll end with some good news from Tuesday's doctor's appointment: I am dilated to 1 1/2 centimeters, which is an improvement from the week before, when I was closed up like a clam. I also think I'm losing my mucus plug- so hopefully this baby is sensing her momma's discomfort and is working with me to get things moving! I hope so, this is not my cup o' tea!
