There is still 3 weeks till Bump is due, but I am over this pregnancy- the heartburn (and occasional vomiting due to heartburn), the battle to put on shoes, the lack of sleep, the pelvic floor issues, the waiting for root canal. ARRRRRRRRRGHHHH.
Anyone else over being pregnant??

It'll fly turnip!! We'll have our bundles before we know it! I'm not quite at your stage yet, although I still have 5 weeks to go. I am a bit over not being able to sleep though. I know I won't be able to sleep once bubs comes, but right now it's because I get a sore back - at least when bubs comes there will be a better reason for it!!

Yes. Surviving on about 3 hrs broken sleep a night. My boy pregnancies were never like that...still got up a lot to wee, but could get back to sleep easily.
Was going to work another three weeks, have cut it back to two, now considering throwing the towel in altogether after working the late shift on Friday and having painful Braxton Hicks for the last 3 hrs of it (also did not have this with my last 2 pg...must be a girl thing).

Oh yep, I am in the same boat. I HATE pregnancy with a passion. I am over constantly vomiting, feeling sick, heartburn, back pain, SPD, not being able to cut my own toe nails cant dry my feet and ankles properly after my showers, etc etc. I could go on forever.
I have started trying natural induction methods, DTD, but my goodness it hurts with SPD. Went for a 4.5km walk today and still waiting. Bring on the curries this week and eating pineapple
Oh also very over the contractions that are going no where, and no they are not just braxton hicks, they are real ones too. I will see this bub eventually, even if it doesnt feel like it at the moment.
Thanks for the vent girls

I don't like saying in over pregnancy as it was a battle to get hear, but i am so ready to start the next chapter of our lives with our little man!
Still have 4 wks and 3 days to EDD but bring him on anytime im ready!!!
Sleeping is getting hard, and if im going to be awake I would rather be looking at my baby then my ceiling!
I have been drinking the raspberry leaf tea for 2 weeks having BH but that's it, but I have my first round of acupuncture this Wednesday! Then another lot at 38 then weekly till 40 and x2 weekly till he comes! Hoping just to get to 38 lol don't like my chances!!!

I love my sleep and I usually sleep really well, but I've started really struggling. Had the worst night sleep last night and I'm already so tired so hate not sleeping! I'm so irritable all the time I just don't want anyone to talk to me because I know they'll p*ss me off. Poor DP's really feeling it. I got stuck in traffic on Saturday and it made me cry! Not happy about having 2 weeks left of work as I also have a uni assignment due on Friday and I'm really struggling to get everything done! Right now just looking forward to finishing work, but I'm sure by the time I get there I'll be really wanting this baby to come. Getting to the pointy end now ladies!

I hear you!!
On the whole I have had a really smooth, great pregnancy throughout and have actually really enjoyed it. But I have had a damn cold for the last week which is making me really tired, combined with bad pelvic pains means Im not getting any sleep and feeling very sorry for myself!
I know sleep deprivation will be the norm once bubs arrives but at least it will be more constructive loss of sleep - not because my body has decided to shut down!

I still have 5 weeks to go, so far I have enjoyed being pregnant...guess I have been really lucky, had a few weeks of morning sickness to begin with then all been good since..get sick of getting up to go to the toilet numerous times a night tho. I'm so looking forward to meeting and holding my baby girl..

I'm with C.Lever, I don't want to say I'm over this pregnancy because of the issues I had last time, BUT I will be looking forward to meeting the little one sooner rather than later and an end to SPD and the nausea and vomiting
