I am 36+3 and I am FED UP.

I keep having stupid niggly pains that mean I can't get comfy and I swear the baby is stabbing my cervix with a knife. The thought of potentially another 5/6 weeks of this depresses the hell out of me.

I have had a shower and just put clean pyjamas on because I can't be bothered with today.

Anyone else miserable?

birdybirdy21 Sun 24-Nov-13 12:06:14

I'm 34 + 1 and know that I'm having a c section at 37 + 6 and im bloody miserable. Have been for ages. I've got bad SPD and a toddler who isnt a particularly great sleeper to deal with. I'm bloody huge as well.

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 12:07:19

you're lucky to have an end date in sight though. Focus on that smile

DontLetTheMugglesGetYouDown Sun 24-Nov-13 12:31:47

Bless you, I remember the stabby pains well! I spent most of my last trimester in the bath or sleeping on a mountain of pillows.

everythinghippie29 Sun 24-Nov-13 12:43:42

38 + 2 here, feel huuuuge, can't sleep and have spent all my time cleaning like a maniac and getting annoyed if ANYONE puts anything out of place, including myself, making living normally a bit of a struggle! wink

Achey, tired and also have a full blown cough and cold which is uncomfortable too.

I know I'm on the final stretch but it could be another 3 weeks and that would be horrible! We've only got a shower and I have never wanted to soak all day in the bath so much in my life!

Moany, moan, moan...I really should cheer up, eh?

Hope all of you ladies feel better soon! grin

Me. I'm here mning because I really don't have the energy to do anything else.

My back hurts if I stand, my coxyx if I sit, my hips if I lie down.

Baby breech and high so terrible indigestion and breathless.

He has a foot in my fanjo I think. He thinks its hilarious to stomp about on it.

I keep getting pmt cramps and the bhs have ramped up massively but I can't even get excited about them as he is breech.

I am in bed for 8pm but up every 2 hours for a wee.

I am either furious or over emotional.

I am bored and fed up and pissed off.

I have a scan tomorrow so hopefully I will be given a c section date. I can't decide whether I want him to still be breech and be given an end date or if I want him to have turned so that I can start the eviction process. Will be 37 weeks on Friday so DP might get lucky next weekend.

Lovely spicey curry and dtd on Friday night. Then going to finish Christmas shopping, buy new tree, wrap up presents and generally do too much lol.

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 13:07:21

I just made a chicken cheese and hash brown burger and then burst into tears because it isn't spaghetti hoops on toast. What the fuck hormones?

bluebeanie Sun 24-Nov-13 13:17:36

I hear you. I went to 40+12. Gave birth the day I was due to be induced. I felt miserable, massive and hated the lack of control over when things would finally start happening. I couldn't stand the constant texts asking how I was. Hang on in there. Just remember that this will all be distant memory soongrin

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 13:30:12

how can I be so bloody exhausted without having done anything? why won't my body just let me sleep for more than an hour at a time. life is mean

SolitudeSometimesIs Sun 24-Nov-13 13:32:51

Can I have a whine too?

34w4days, have spd, a two and a half year old and a husband who is working flat out at the moment so never home. I'm so so sore that I cry about twice a day and so frustrated that I'm unable to do all the stuff I need to.

I spent the morning making Christmas cookies with DS and all I want is a hot chocolate to dip them in but I can't face going to the shop because I'm so fucking sore. We wanted three children but this is the last one. Can't face doing this again.

Moan over. Thanks for that. You all have my sympathies.

nannynome Sun 24-Nov-13 13:58:03

I will join in too, 33 +6 and currently trying to help DH and his friend pack house for moving on weds/Thursday sad whole place/life is utterly upside down, SPD is driving me mental and so is DH. He can't think more than one thing at once bless him and I am trying to juggle:remember everything from utilities, network connections, appointments for diabetes clinic, physio, estate agent plus teach someone how to do my job and do everything on not enough sleep and a baby who is thinking it hilarious to booty ribs and jump on my sciatic nerve so my leg vanishes occasionally. Am counting the days! Still got his family and my family to deal with over the next 2 weekends as we have cancelled Christmas!! Hugs to all x

alice93 Sun 24-Nov-13 14:20:51

I'm 33+5 days, I'm a student with huge ton of essays to write before this baby is born - I can't type at the table as my back begins to hurt before too long, the sofa is uncomfortable and lying in bed gives me heartburn. DP can't sleep because I'm moaning in my sleep about heartburn!! (thankfully at night I'm too tired to notice, and just have the occasional wonder around the house before going back to bed)
Today I woke up sad, and got even more sad that my mum is off on holiday for a week - I'm not jealous, and it's not like i'd see her anyway if she wasn't away!! No idea why it made me sad.
It feels like there is still so much time left sad The heartburn alone is enough. sad

EmB1715 Sun 24-Nov-13 15:33:53

Yep! 38+3 here and desperate for this to end!

BookTart Sun 24-Nov-13 15:44:57

33+6 here and every time the baby moves it feels like I'm going to wet myself. Haven't slept for more than an hour at a time for a couple of weeks, and still have 2 weeks at work. In theory I could be like this for another 6 weeks or so <weeps>
You all have my utter sympathy.

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 15:53:58

<offers everyone a biscuit and a giant hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows>

lastnightopenedmyeyes Sun 24-Nov-13 16:38:20

I'm not late third trimester yet (31 weeks) but I'm already v uncomfortable. Braxtons, standby pains, lower back, hip and leg pain that stops me sleeping at night. And a very active 3 year old to run about after. confused

Looking forward to January!

lastnightopenedmyeyes Sun 24-Nov-13 17:34:55

Standby pains?! Stabby pains thank you very much grin

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 17:38:37

I think they can also be known as standby pains. in the sense that they put you on standby for labour grin

PistachioTruffle Sun 24-Nov-13 17:45:02

37+5. A word of advice: Do not decide that after several months of not being able to see it, that looking down below with a hand mirror is a good idea. hmm

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 17:52:41

I shall take your advice pistachio I don't think I have ever looked at it anyway confused

lastnightopenedmyeyes Sun 24-Nov-13 18:18:53

Whispermen - yes standby pains is quite a good name for them!

I've already made the mirror mistake confusedconfusedconfused

Quodlibet Sun 24-Nov-13 18:25:15

37 wks here and one more week of work to go. Tired, grumpy, achy, swollen hands, fed up of not being able to bend in the middle or put my shoes on. Middle back aches if I stand up, hips ache when I sleep, stretched ribs ache all the time.
Plus all my trousers/tights are too tight - cant bear anything pressing on bump anywhere as it sets off BHs. Can't abide the thought of another 5 weeks potentially of this.

Blondie276 Sun 24-Nov-13 19:18:36

Hi everyone , not sure I can cheer people up but I feel all your pain ! I'm 39+1 and have given up hope of this baby being born before my due date on sat' I had to give up work early as got v bad spd and am pretty much house bound now. Cannot get comfortable in aNy position and have recently has a lovely bout of bad piles to deal with too. Why does no one tell you pregnancy is actually awful?! I know it's all worth it in the end but I can't eat anymore pineapple, drink anymore raspberry leaf tea, eat any more curries or jump on my DH anymore ( far too uncomfirtable!)
Totally done with pregnancy now and my patience is wearing v thin! I'm hoping some thing will start happening this week as I've had not some much as a twinge so far- not even any BH!!!
Sorry -moan over. Feel a little better now! ;)

Lumpy76 Sun 24-Nov-13 19:49:14

37 +5 here!! Dc7 so you'd think that I'd be very used to this but I'm MORE than ready to have a baby now but also terrified as I know what I'm about to go through....I have very fast labours so much pain relief is not an option.

Pistachio I totally agree...don't look down there...

Haven't packed my bag yet (although i have bought everything now) as kind of feel if I'm ready there'll be no chance of things happening before baby is forced out!

I'm annoying my DH intensely by rearranging furniture, the house, cleaning etc He says it's nesting (I did have him clear out the garage the day before the night I had dc2) but it's just about keeping busy and the time passing more quickly....otherwise it seems to stand still!!! Good luck to all of us!!!!

cupcake78 Sun 24-Nov-13 19:53:54

I don't envy any of you! The last few weeks are hard going. To give you hope dd is now 5 months and she's amazing! I've spent all day laughing at my two children. Ds 6 is hilarious, dd is so pleased with herself she giggles at everything from grabbing a toy to rolling over.

I had HG from day one and really bad SPD! I love not feeling sick, can walk for miles again. Its so totally worth it . I would do it all again tomorrow if dh would let mewink
