I just have to vent a little...I know I am really lucky to have had a fairly smooth pregnancy, although I did suffer a miscarriage previously before...but I am just so sick of being pregnant.
I feel like a whale...I can't really shave my legs (I just tried...I missed the left side of my left leg...guess a job for DH to do when he gets home from work)
I would love to go out and enjoy my final days as a childless woman. But I really don't have the energy and don't much enjoy looking for a toilet every hour or so. Not to mention the heat isn't exactly kind to pregnant women. (note to self...don't ever have another summer baby)
The house is fairly tidy...I would love to do the whole thing top to toe. But after only a short while my back gets really really sore. I am really looking forward to not being so weighed down.
I know labour and childbirth is probably going to hurt so bad...but I'm hoping I can cope knowing that not only do I get a beautiful baby out of it all...but I also get my body back to myself! (Well sort of...I do want to breastfeed)
I've been hoping everyday since I was officially 37 weeks that I would go into labour. Really hope it happens soon!

Awww hang in there, not long to go
Besides, I noticed your EDD and have to say February people are awesome, I am one
Good luck with your birth when it happens!

Hopefully it is not too long now! Just think at least it is only 9 months not 2 yrs like elephants

I feel your pain Electric_blue, I'm almost 36 weeks with twins and most uncomfortable. Counting down the days till I meet these new bubbas.

i could have written your post OP!
today i've just cracked it and have decided enough! ive experienced being pregnant and i want him out now.
i have had a 'perfect' pregnancy, so nothing bad to complain about, im just over it.
and i can't stand suprises and not knowing what is going to happen, so these last few weeks are my worst nightmare! waiting, waiting, waiting.....aaargh!

I know how you feel. Ive got just over 3 weeks to go and struggling.
I also have 2 kids at home. Some days i feel like i wont get through.
Come on little baby!!!

I know how you feel and I am not due until May!
Today I feel hot, cranky, hormonal and sick (HG pregnancy).
Hope your baby comes out soon

You're on the home stretch! Hang in there.

Well not sure if it was the venting I did yesterday...but my waters broke last night and I've had contractions on and off this morning...finish line is indeed in sight now!
Posted 22 January 2013 - 08:34 AM
Good luck OP, im due this Friday and well and truly ready to meet my baby.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 08:47 AM
Wow how exciting. You will be meeting your bub so soon. I might start venting if thats what worked
Posted 22 January 2013 - 09:09 AM
Great news Electric_Blue!
Baby must have heard you...
Should I continue stalking for a baby pic?
Posted 22 January 2013 - 09:51 AM
Fantastic news! Good luck!
I'm due this Sunday and know how u feel. I've started having some prelabour signs the past couple of days and back pain this morning. Hopefully ill be as lucky as you and baby will arrive early.
Looking forward to reading your announcement!
Posted 22 January 2013 - 10:25 AM
Oh I hear ya. Ive got much further to go though, Im not due till the very last day of Feb and my babies always like to hang out in there for longer.
I am hot, sticky, tired, and very sore with SPD. I want to clean my house and be a more fun Mum for the girls on school holidays but I simply cannot do it. I feel bad for DP as he works in this heat and then comes home and does all that I cant do. So over being preg, crappy Mum and crappy partner, and AGES to go.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 10:28 AM
well clearly I didnt read the second page!
Good for you OP. How exciting. I cannot wait for my turn.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 12:42 PM
Soo...waters have broken I have irregular contractions but haven't gone into labour just yet. However, I am booked to be induced Thursday morning if nothing happens before then.
Hopefully give me a chance to get some more Zzzz's....I am wrecked from last night.
Thanks for all the well wishes...looking forward to sharing some good news in the very near future. =)

all you "ladies" complaining about the fact that
you cant shave your legs cos your bellys too big
you need to pee every hour
you feel like a whale
u know what?
i wished i could complain about all those things
i MISSED out on all those things
cos my bubba came out at 24 weeks
try sitting in a nicu for 4 month, fearing THAT call in 3 in the morning... fearing that your bubba wouldnt make it, or there would be something wrong!
go to the preemy pages and look at other people who NEVER had those things you are complaining about!!!
count your blessings!

I get your frustration elmo_mum, but your vent is misplaced here. You can whinge about your lot, just as pregnant women can whinge about theirs.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 07:00 PM
OP any update.
Posted 22 January 2013 - 07:20 PM
I 100% understand where you are coming from being a woman who has actually lost her son at 22 weeks i get it. But ubermum
is right and i am sure the OP is extremely grateful and happy and appreciative that she is pregnant but it's important to take a step back and try and see it from their perspective pregnancy isn't easy either none of this is.....
It's all very hard and i know I am also sensitive to these threads my first thought is the same as yours but then i think No they have every right to WHINGE and i would never wish for anyone to be in our shoes
