So Frustrated with Pregnancy!

I usually enjoy or love being pregnant but this one I am totally hating.  I don’t know what my body is doing at times, either getting ready for labor or just being plain old annoying.  One day I have contractions all day long the next my head is killing me due to high blood pressure.  In all my other pregnancies I could tell when it is definitely labor but this one I don’t know when I am going to have to call the doctor and say I think it is time.  Last week I was in on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday I actually stayed the night there due to high blood pressure and throbbing head but got sent home basically saying sorry we can’t do anything for you.  I wish it would just stop and be over with, my doctor won’t induce me until 39 weeks nothing sooner unless a true medical reason comes along.  I have vicodin to take for my headaches but yesterday I took it and I felt horrible all day, my head still hurt and I was so dizzy moving around made me feel sick to my stomach. I can take tylenol but that won’t even touch the pain in the headaches.  They also gave me sleeping pills but that didn’t work when I took it so forget that.  My hands and feet are so swollen because of this but all of this is still not a good enough reason to induce me at least to my doctor.  She said if my blood pressure was even border line to preeclampsia than she would induce me but its not.  I have given up even trying to figure out how to get myself to go into labor because there is no point anymore.  I am just going to have to live with the pain the next two weeks.  At least the baby is nice and healthy.  Also my husband has been so wonderful during this time of frustration to me.  When I start crying in frustration he will come and comfort me, how sweet is that.  I love him so much and appreciate him.
