I'm due Thurs, I have a strong feeling I wont be going into labor anytime soon.

I go to bed quite early to rest and watch tv, it doesn't take long for the pain to kick in, the shitty pain that feels like you've just been kicked in your vagina apart from that, absolutely nothing!!

Fed up of having to fake a smile when people say 'he not here yet?, or aww he'll come when hes ready' I know that but MY body is ready NOW!!! arggggggggggggh...................

Hi sleeping, I am 40 plus 9, and seriously fed up. I have had so many false starts, my bag has been ppacked for a month and my two children have given up on asking about the baby. Due to be induced Friday.
Know what you mean about pains in the fango!
Hope your baby comes soon xx

honey86 Tue 22-Oct-13 10:26:21

nearly... my scan due dates in 2 days but hospital chose to go by lmp hmm which would make me 38+4. been in n out of false labour for weeks sad

Lj8893 Tue 22-Oct-13 10:29:53

I'm due on Sunday. Really really fed up now.
Constant braxton hicks and loads of cervix pressure.

And don't even get me started on the discharge!!! Yuk!

Smerlin Tue 22-Oct-13 10:31:21

Due today and nothing happening! Feels like such an anti-climax after months of waiting! Still time though ( fingers crossed!)

Excited85 Tue 22-Oct-13 10:37:11

Yes yes yes. Four days over and feeling like a bit of a failure to be honest! Everyone has been asking for updates for about the last 2 weeks and I'm soooo ready but clearly baby isn't! Hang in there, I figure they can't keep cooking forever!

TruJay Tue 22-Oct-13 10:45:00

I've got 11days left, bump is dropping daily and the pressure is increasing daily too, was up all last night cramping and dull back ache all morning, I've had Braxton hicks for weeks now, I can't see me lasting the whole 11 days but u never know. I just want a newborn cuddle, to find out if we're having a boy or girl and let our little boy meet his new baby sibling, so exciting!! But my bloody back is killing me!! And I am very very ready now, c'mon baby! Hope you're all not waiting too much longer smile

purple84 Tue 22-Oct-13 12:22:27

I'm due on Saturday, so utterly fed up, I have just this minute started to cry because I have had my daily text from my dad, asking if there are any signs?
I know people are just worried and want to know but I will text people if/when it happens. I just can't handle the constant pestering for information that isn't here.
Good luck everyone x

SleepingWithABrokenHeart Tue 22-Oct-13 13:11:01

Ouch, sympathy for those that are overdue! I'm not even overdue and I've already had enough!

Even DD who is 3 is fed of of waiting and telling him he has to come out now haha!

If I don't answer my phone, which sometimes I'm just in such an arse i can't be bothered to speak, everyone assumes I've gone into labor, so I have to answer it grr.

And why is it people only ever wanna ring at the most inconvenient times?

Excited85 Tue 22-Oct-13 13:40:39

Oh purple I know how horrible that feels. My MIL has rang every day for nearly the past two weeks now asking if I've had any 'twinges' and am only 4 days over now. I've stopped answering the phone now as she is making me feel upset and like a failure - I know she's eager to meet her grandchild but seriously... What am I meant to do about it?!

BiscuitBeast Tue 22-Oct-13 14:26:07

Due tomorrow and have fingers and toes crossed that I'm not going to go over too much...blatantly will!

First baby and cannot wait, it's been a long 9mths and even longer last few weeks now. I'm so impatient grin

Have been having increase in sporadic BH over last week but no sign of any show or plug. Chronic back/pelvis/hip pain meaning resting AND moving is hideous <rolling eyes> but no sign of any contractions yet...I'm going stir crazy!

Hope you ladies aren't waiting too much longer for your little ones x

purple84 Tue 22-Oct-13 14:49:37

This really is the most annoying point of pregnancy, I told myself I would never complain about any bit of pregnancy as it took nearly 3 years and 4 mcs to get to this point, but basically this is the worse bit, like biscuit my hips are killing me they hurt when I sleep on my side (cant bloody sleep on back or belly obviously!!) so no sleep and yes I know we are gonna have sleepless nights soon but the thought of getting up for baby seems more worthwhile than having no sleep because I'm in pain, if I go for a walk they hurt, if I sit too long they hurt........what to do?
As well as the constant pestering for information what really gets to me is having nothing to do, nowhere to go, my DH at work all day and I have nothing to do, I really wouldn't have started mat leave 4 wks before due date if knew it was gonna be like this, I woud rather have been at work at least I would have something o talk about to people when they phone to ask about baby news.
Also I hate people saying "make the most of the rest" I don't want rest I want my baby.
Sorry rant over xx

TruJay Tue 22-Oct-13 15:37:02

Haha purple I completely agree, waking to feed/change ur newborn is so much better than it being for the 50th pee that evening, horrendous heartburn, cramps which make u think ooh this is it etc etc or worst of all a combination of the lot. I have found myself glaring at my poor hubby sleepy soundly at the side of me and thinking "You, you did this to me!" Haha
When I say I'm bored people just say "well u won't have time to be bored once baby is here!" Yes I know, that was the point I was making, I want my baby here. And as DS is now in pre-school, all the mum's, albeit lovely ladies are doing my head in "haven't u had that baby yet" why yes I have, I just figured I would carry a basketball round in my top just to keep u guessing hmm but thank u for your input random person I don't really know. I know people are curious but everyone asking " how long left now" just gets a bit tedious when it's tens of people everyday!

SleepingWithABrokenHeart Tue 22-Oct-13 15:40:34

I don't think I've had BH, either that or I just don't notice them hmm

Purple I said the same thing, I know I'll miss being pregnant, but its so hard to enjoy it when your this uncomfortable all the time!
I wake up loads throughout the night to pee, I said to oh at least when I wake up with the babba It wont be like trying to climb an assault course just to get out of bed!

Smerlin Tue 22-Oct-13 15:53:55

Haha sleeping- getting out of bed is sooo like an assault course isn't it!

The boredom thing is a killer- now starting my fourth week of mat leave and have already cooked, cleaned, met up with every friend who's free during the day, read etc. I've honestly had quite enough 'time to myself.'

GreenGiant3 Tue 22-Oct-13 17:28:58

I'm due in 12 days and feeling really fed up too!! Can't imagine what you ladies who have went over feel blushsad just want my baby to cuddle! Been on the birthing ball a lot the past few days trying to get it started, not happening though sad

Sleeptimenow Tue 22-Oct-13 17:38:31

I'm due on Sunday, keep getting the texts from MIL "how are you today?", what she actually wants to know is " is my grandchild on the way yet? "- oh yeah I'm in labour but am just pretending to have naff all signs to irritate you!

No signs, no show, irregular occasional Braxton hicks, SPD and now physio has given up treating it as worried about causing damage so on crutches. On plus side house is cleanest it has been in ages, but please baby get a move on! (Can you tell I'm a bit fed up of being pregnant?).

louise3louise3 Tue 22-Oct-13 18:04:43

Not due (how lovely to be having a baby) but honestly ladies just thank your lucky stars that you have got that far in pregnancy and that your babies will have a wonderful start in life staying in just that little bit longer. First baby born on due date. 2nd and 3rd babies, twins. Amniotic fluid leaked from week 20, waters broke fully at 26 weeks, delivered at 29 weeks, no steroids, told they would not survive as lungs too poor. Ventilated and intensive care for weeks. Discharged at 8 weeks weighing just over 4lbs each. Twin 2 potty trained at 3.5; twin 1 at 4 years 1 month. Started school now - impossible trying to explain developmental delay to anyone. Twin 1 possible brain damage due to infection/birth. A very long, slow, painful journey with them. Looking at them and their 'overdue' friends at school and my God, what a difference there is. 11 weeks early means a delay of 2.5 years in potty training and being told I was a 'crap' parent for not trying hard enough. Hope everything goes well for you all - you will get there eventually....

Slongette Tue 22-Oct-13 18:27:08

louise3louise3 sorry you've had a terrible time - my sister went through something similar and had her twins at 26 weeks so I can understand the traumas you've been/going through.

Having said that this thread is for those who've just had enough of being pregnant. Please don't make people feel bad - they feel bad enough already with all they have going on.

GreenGiant3 Tue 22-Oct-13 19:26:31

Sorry to hear your story Louise3, can't imagine how you must feel sad

however I do agree with Slongette, we mean no harm or offence but we are just sharing our experiences

purple84 Tue 22-Oct-13 20:05:24

Louise3louise3 I am very sorry to hear your story and think you are amazing to be going through that but as I have said in my post I know how lucky we all are, as me and DH have had a real struggle and many losses to get to this point, but that doesn't stop it being tedious as you may remember from your first pregnancy.

ringaringarosy Tue 22-Oct-13 20:14:01

I am not due til december,i went 3 weeks over with my 1st,1 week over with number 3 and 2 weeks over with number 4,those days you go over are the longest in the world!

I just kept telling myself i had waited 9 months,another couple of weeks wont hurt!and lots of baths,naps when i could and chocolate!

TruJay Tue 22-Oct-13 20:16:13

Over the last 16 months, due to miscarrying my last baby, I have been pregnant almost 13 months and still waiting for my baby so yeh I am pretty fed up.

What u have experienced is awful and u have my sympathies but you don't know what others are suffering with also.

There is a mum at my son's school who had a loss a few months back and has avoided me my entire pregnancy and given me some awful looks as bump has grown bigger, I can understand it is upsetting to see pregnant people after ur loss but what she doesn't know is my baby is conceived after having a loss too.

louise3louise3 Tue 22-Oct-13 21:38:47

Sorry, I was thoughtless. Didn't mean to upset/offend. Probably green eyed monster coming out x

Firsttimemom2013 Tue 22-Oct-13 22:24:34

Yep 1 week overdue and still waiting......if I hear one more person say to me "you still here then???" Think I may scream hmm trying everything to bring labour on myself before having to go into hospital on Friday to be induced, first baby so am entering the unknown here hmm but on the other hand I am quite excited cause after 9 months of waiting my hubby and I will meet our baby by the end of the week one way or another......grin
