2 weeks until due date and starting to feel fed up

I'm not due for another 5 weeks and I'm already feeling like that!

Doesn't help dh is constantly working so I'm housebound with a toddler (only recently passed driving test and too scared to drive with ds) and bored senseless ... This morning I even questioned why I bothered getting dressed hmm

in regards to riding my horses have almost had a whole year off. My stallion slipped in the field last May, and had to have an operation on his hock in June, then on boxrest more or less until the all clear from the vet in Oct and by then I was not allowed to ride...the pony was driven all through the summer, but then I decided even that would be too much of a risk...both are now furry, unfit, filthy and bored rigid. I decided to let them rough it and live out this winter, access to deep littered fieldshelter but I have tried to minimise the amount of work they would require....It doesent seem to have done them any harm, apart from the stallion being a bit restless and bored but this spring and summer we will really get our arses into gear and get on with the competition side of things, so he might well find that this time off came in handy wink

I'm due weds too! Hoping baby doesn't make me wait too long but praying it's not tonight as both my nighttime emergency babysitters for ds are away til tomorrow, we have a couple of places we could leave him if we had to but they are unfamiliar and would cause angst for him and us. As of tomorrow, however, will be ready and waiting, come on baby!

Good luck all for a speedy end to pregnancy and meeting babies :-)

Just to make you even more fed up, at my MW appt at 36 weeks baby was 3/5 engaged. By the 38 wk appt she was free again angry . However, now I am at 4 days to go and I think she's back in position. Increasing back ache, hoping against hope that things are ramping up!

Aimeelou28 you're the first person I've 'met' with the same due date as me! Hope yours doesn't hang about either!

MrsHBaby3 Sat 09-Feb-13 20:50:03

Yes I'm convinced baby will be late too!
For the horsey peeps, how long did you ride for? I managed 20 weeks but my SPD has got progressively worse so by 30 weeks I've found it difficult to even walk pain-free.

I am almost at 38 weeks and came back from midwife yesterday and he 3-5 engaged, and I want to get back to riding, and feeling normal...come on baby...yesterday I thought I had my first contractions but it was only wind blush it sure is undignified this pregnancy business grin

Aimeelou28 Fri 08-Feb-13 19:24:33

Like stowsettler I'm due next Wednesday and totally fed up! if I knew it was only going to be those 5 more days I think I'd be ok, but I'm convinced the baby is going to come really late and make the wait even longer- as if 9 months wasn't long enough!
I don't have any signs or sense that she's ready to come out anytime soon and I've just about lost my patience with the constipation, tossing and turning in the night, leaking wee, exhaustion....
As some of you have said though it does serve to make the prospect of labour pain seem more and more desirable rather than something to dread!

Im 37 Weeks and feel great ,i'm almost 40 years old , 1st pregnancy 1st baby, was at midwife yesterday and she said baby is , 2-3 5ths

Lovelylace---I'm like you I'm still mucking out my horses and feeding cattle :-)

CailinDana Fri 08-Feb-13 13:28:47

Yup. Due in two weeks and incredibly fed up. I was the same with DS - I found the last few weeks absolutely torturous. One of the things that annoys me the most is just not knowing when it's going to happen - if someone said "it'll definitely be such and such a date" I could just forget about it and get on with things, but because I have no idea I feel like my life is somewhat on hold (though I do carry on for the most part - it's just always in the back of my mind). For example a friend of mine wants us to take our kids to the zoo next week but it's quite a distance away and I'd be in deep shit if I went into labour while were there as I don't know how I'd get home. So it's off the agenda. Blagghhhhh!!! Come on baby, get out!!

MrsHBaby3 Fri 08-Feb-13 12:21:36

I am counting the days too... Had rubbish pregnancy (pos little better in the middle, but not much). I'm convinced its so I look forward to being in labour.

Wiggy29 Fri 08-Feb-13 11:31:42

Interesting, I'm the opposite! After feeling pants and sleepy all the time in earlier pregnancy, I feel fab at 38 weeks. Loads of energy (which is just as well as just finished work and house is a dump) until about 10 at night when back really aches and I just head to bed. Not trying to brag or be annoying super woman- from around 16-22 weeks I was literally in bed at the same time as ds (around 7:30)!

Lovelylace Fri 08-Feb-13 11:19:04

I definately think there is something in that, I mean that you get so fed up that even the pain of labour seem preferable...This is my first so have no idea what I am looking for in terms of symptom, but any little pain or twinge I am hoping will turn into full blown labour...but no luck..I am off to the midwife today and i bet she will say he isnt even starting to get engaged yet...soo hoping he will make an appearance a bit early but reccon he will be late..just hoping it wont be for more than a couple of days though...My mum went over two weeks with me, that means i got another month of this...GAHHHH!!

Kafri Thu 07-Feb-13 19:42:34

Afraid so, I decided the last few weeks when I was really really fed up was my body's way of making me be ready and even look forward to the pain of labour. By the time you get to term you're just like 'come on get started already'!!

For me it was the not knowing when it would happen. I was symptom spotting for a good couple of weeks. Going off what people I here had said they experienced right before things got going. I had absolutely no symptoms til I woke up at 6am with contractions. Ds arrived a day early!

stowsettler Thu 07-Feb-13 18:57:31

I'm due next Wed and fed up to the back teeth. When I hit 36 weeks it's as if someone flipped a switch and said, "Right, the last bit is going to be shit. Live with it."

I've thought for the whole pregnancy that she was going to be early, but over the past week I've realised that this just isn't going to happen. She's going to be late and I'm staying in limbo forever sad .

Yup, sounds about right. I have 2 weeks and 6 days until my section and it can't come around quick enough.

Lovelylace Thu 07-Feb-13 16:36:36

Have had such an easy pregnancy, with no morning sickness, no stretchmarks, no SPD...just very straightforward, but now I am starting to feel fed up...mucking out the horses take forever, and leave me feeling absolutely knackered, not to mention walking the dog...Can't seem to get a full nights sleep, waking up countless times to go to the loo, and being starving at 3 am...nose is bunged up and I am feeling soo lethargic...is this how it supposed to be the last few weeks, or?
