16 weeks pregnant and feels like its been forever - weeks 5 to 14 with constant nausea, now grumpy and tearful - time is going so slowly when all of it is spent completely sober!

For me I felt the first 18 or so weeks flew by,now at 30+3 and I am so done with being pregnant! I always thought I would be one of those women who LOVE being pregnant but bloody hell I am fed up. Don't get me wrong the worst pregnancy symptoms have passed me by so I'm lucky really but today I cracked,was awake between 1am and 4am last night, couldn't get back to sleep because I couldn't get comfy,then slept in this morning so late for work,baby wouldn't stop kicking my bladder,felt so bloated it was like I had eaten a ten course meal and everyone in the office was majorly pissing me off! Text hubby in tears at 11am asking him to 'get the baby out'.

And by the way...WHERE'S THE FUCKING GLOW I WAS PROMISED??? Passed me by completely.

(God I could use a wine right now)

35+4 with dc2 and I think it's gone ever so quick this time around. Probably because I'm running around after ds1 all day smile

I am the worlds least patient person. I feel as though I have been pregnant for years!

I'm 23 weeks and it feels like I've still got sooooo long to go. I'm very jealous of your speedy pregnancy OP grin

I still cant believe im 20wks tomorrow.... eeek!

I think if your very sick/ in pain/generally feel crap it drags.

With your 1st it feels like the baby will never arrive & you can't imagine what it will be like when the baby arrives.

I haven't been pregnant for over 5 years so in many respects its quite a novelty but its also my 6th dc & im feeling it today!

I've already had 2 meetings this morning & done food shopping. Put dinner on. Made phone calls. Its not even 1pm!

Hope everyone's pregnancies whizz by as smoothly as possible!

Mine is also flying by, I'm on dc5 and also had the "oh shit not long left and iv got nothing" feeling yesterday I'm 31 weeks and iv got the baby's clothes and thats it, id bought everything by now with all my others.

It probably wouldn't seem too bad but I'll be having the baby at 38 weeks due to gd, that leaves 7 weeks!! shock

I think the first 12 22 weeks dragged endlessly thanks to horrendous sickness and exhaustion and then it's sped along rapidly until now when I am 34+3 and getting fed up again. Though saying that I realised that it has pretty much flown by. It seems like two minutes ago I was peeing on the test in the shopping centre toilets in april and now I only have a few weeks left.

It's just you.

I have to say for me it's been quite the opposite - I am 34+5 and I have felt sick EVERY DAY of the pregnancy... my husband often comes home and says it's going quickly... LUCKY HIM!!! I cannot wait for the baby to come, am really excited about having a son / daughter BUT pregnancy has been one of the toughest things I've done! It is NOT going fast!!! 5 weeks (hopefully!) to go!! Bring it on!

PumpkinPie2013 Sat 09-Nov-13 18:51:25

I'm 37+4 with dc1 and feel it has/is going really fast! The first 12 weeks dragged on but once the first scan was done it has flown by.

Started maternity leave at 32 weeks due to low blood pressure and thought I'd have loads of time to do everything but now with 2.5 weeks to due date I feel I have soooo much left to do!

The acid reflux and sore ribs aren't fun though! X

I feel like mine's taking forever - I'm nine weeks and dying to tell people/have a bump/etc.Sigh...

SadPander Sat 09-Nov-13 17:26:10

Yes 34 weeks, and although getting the positive result seems a lifetime ago it has passed really quickly. Probably helps that its been unconplicated and easy so far.

Can't wait to meet my baby but its almost going to quickly!

Shellywelly1973 Sat 09-Nov-13 15:16:52

I remember with dc2 & 3 being so annoyed that othe pregnancy seemed yo be taking ages to pass.

With dc 3 I hsd severe SPD & burst into tears with the physio when she said, '.only 12 weeks to go!'

I think this pregnancy has gone by quickly for me as its been really busy, too busy. I am wishing I could slow down but im realising I need to more not less!

Maybe its due to the amount of dc & work.

TobyLerone Sat 09-Nov-13 14:32:34

I'm 32 weeks and it's flown past!

Julietee Sat 09-Nov-13 13:57:23

Same as Romily. Pregnancy is a whole lifetime.

Romily Sat 09-Nov-13 13:31:27

I am the opposite, I feel s if I have been pregnant forever and I can't believe I am only 27 weeks with so long to go!

polarpercy Sat 09-Nov-13 11:47:46

Not just you at all! Bits in the middle (now 38+2) seemed to go slow at the time. But, now I look back it seems to have whizzed by. This is our first and I'm definitely feeling I'm not organised enough given the time!

Shellywelly1973 Sat 09-Nov-13 11:25:13

Im 28 +5. With 6th dc. This pregnancy is flying by. I cant believe im almost 29 weeks.

Dont get me wrong I feel massive. My legs & feet are sooo fat. PGP that's getting worse by the week. Tiredness, heart burn etc.

But its suddenly hit me im running out of weeks. I will work as long as possible as im self employed. The house is hideous. No organisation. Bedrooms need to be moved etc. Dp on 7 day weeks til Christmas.

Oh blimey I need to get moving or this little baby will be sleeping in the buggy I haven't actually decidedvon yet!

Anyone else or is it just me?
