Delights & Discomforts: Pregnancy & Beyond


My emails blocking feature sends the emails to the junk file. But after setting it up so that would happen, I’m still getting them to my regular inbox. I’m going to try again and hopefully it will work.
I told him about 2 weeks ago to stop contacting me but he hasn’t listened. My mom thought it might be a good idea to say it again, and if he ignores it then have the police or an attorney contact him.
Thanks for the response. I appreciate the support :)

So my “dad” won’t leave me alone and I don’t know what to do about it.

He’s in the US right now, and he keeps emailing me after I have told him to stop contacting me. He is also trying to contact me through an Aunt who lives in the states.
I don’t know what to do, but I’m tired of being harassed by this guy. I tried blocking his email address but I don’t think my email has that feature. So I was thinking about asking the police to contact him and tell him to leave me alone.
It’s so frustrating. If this was an abusive ex boyfriend everyone would be livid that he’s ignoring me and continuing to email. But because it’s my “dad” I’m supposed to just deal with it and be okay with it.
I do not want this man around myself or my child. He is emotionally and physically abusive and I’m not taking the risk of meeting with him and having him hurt me, especially while I’m still pregnant.
I want him to leave me alone.

Does anyone have any suggestions or maybe a better understanding of how the law works?

At this point I don’t really know what my options are. He’s not a US citizen, and he should only be in the US for another month. But I don’t want to be harassed for the next month… My due date is in a few weeks and I really don’t need the stress.

I had my 36 week appointment today

I did my GBS test and they rechecked my blood work to see if my hemoglobin and hematocrit have increased. I’ll get the results for both at my next appointment. Here’s to hoping everything is fine.

Baby looked great. He’s still head down just like at the last 2 appointments (I have a fear that he’ll randomly decide to go breech so I have them check at every appointment). His back is still against my left side. His heartbeat is good and everything is measuring right on track.

No more pains or contractions today and my belly hasn’t been as tight. The midwife wasn’t worried about any of the symptoms I had this weekend. But my husband also said I may have been too nonchalant when describing my pains. I’ll keep that in mind next time.

Side note: I keep vomiting a little when I lay down. Idk if this counts as indigestion or not, but I keep feeling like I have to burp, and when I do I vomit. It’s such a pain >_< it makes sense though since my stomach is squished.

Also, my mom got me a nursing pillow :]

So yesterday I was having cramps for most of the day. Not like contractions, but dull cramps (like menstrual cramps) then sharp pains. Around 10 or 11pm the pain got worse and it was constant, but it was mostly on my right side. All yesterday my stomach was really tight. Today my stomach is still tight, but none of the other stuff. So I don’t really know if it was early labor or not. Baby has been really active and moving around just fine. I’ve been make sure to drink lots of water and to eat something small every couple hours. I didn’t want to call the midwife in the middle of the night and I also have an apt tomorrow anyway. But I don’t want them to get nervous and send me to the hospital because I’m only 35 and a half weeks. I’m not nervous or anything, I don’t feel like he’s going to come for at least another couple weeks. I just feel like my body is doing some of the work early. My mom and grandmother were the exact same way with their babies, so I’m not the first to have symptoms like this.
My mom started dilating around 34 weeks with my brother and I. So she slowly progressed for the last month of her pregnancies, then had us both within 2 hours of her water breaking/feeling like she was going into labor. I’m thinking I’ll be the same way.  


I used to do that before I moved last year lol now I just have no friends who live anywhere near me. Atleast people on the internet understand me <3 

Me when I’m stuck at home all day and painfully lonely: “I wish I had a friend to hang out with and go places with. I wish I had someone to watch movies and sit around and eat snacks with. I hate being alone.”

Me when I go out in public: “Ew I’m so awkward. I really hope no one tries to talk to me today, I just can’t handle it.”
