Just need cheering up really I started my maternity 2 weeks early due to exhaustion with sickness and spd.
Used some annual leave up first.

I'm now 31 weeks still sick and fed up my time off has been fab so far doing all the things I never get chance to. Obsessed with cleaning.

But I just want it to hurry up 9 weeks still seems like forever and that's not counting if I go over due.

Did the last leg go fast for you.

Yes, the last weeks went really quickly. I had lots I wanted to do after finishing work, then I spent lots of time chilling. It helped that I felt so much better once I'd finished working and the long commute.

My dd was a week early though so I avoided stress about being overdue.

I hope you're able to enjoy the next 9 weeks.

There was a thread a little while ago which seemed to suggest a lot of people had a very 'fed up' stage around week 32. But after that passes it's onto the countdown, really!

It really will fly by. The last week though.... Grrrr hmm

Enjoy your last few weeks - rest and eat yummy food

Is this your first?

I had two weeks off before dd came and loved it. Im now ttc again and want to take lots more time.off pre baby but with a 3yo it will be nowehere near as relaxibg as first time roubd! Am jealous.

I'm 22 wks and want time to slow down but that's because this is my 2nd dc and I know what's coming grin
Don't wish it away, you will never get this time of freedom back...ever! smile

I've got 9 weeks to go as well but still have 7 weeks left at work and am hoping it will fly by as I'm too distracted by the fact I'm having a baby to want to sit and my desk and work! Luckily I feel fine and am not struggling at all but want to be at home getting things ready (although that will probably only take 2 days anyway)

I'm 33 weeks this week and I'm finding that time is speeding up. I think it's because I am shitting myself about the birth, mind, so that's why.

whereisthewitch snap! grin

I'm nearly 32 weeks and time seems to have slowed. It's a weird combination of it being realistically no time at all until baby comes but still 3 loooooong weeks at work and then 5 more weeks at home before due date, which at this point feels like a luxury eternity!

StormyBrid Mon 10-Feb-14 13:06:10

It seemed to drag forever, then all of a sudden it was over, baby arrived, couldn't work out where the last two months went, and wished I'd enjoyed the free time more! Make the most of it, you won't realise what a luxury baby free time is until it's too late.

It really will fly by amd def make the most of it as i am lucky if i get 2hrs sleep in one go with my 7 week old.
I missed out on mat leave as i started the signs of early labour on day 2 of leave (at dead on 37 weeks and she was born at 37+4) so am jealous.

Trinpy Mon 10-Feb-14 15:09:38

I'm 32 weeks and also getting bored of being pregnant. The weeks seemed to whizz by during 2nd trimester and now every pregnancy week seems to last about 6 normal weeks.

On the other hand, I've still got tons to do before the baby arrives and keep panicking about fitting it all in! confused

Inglori0us Mon 10-Feb-14 16:16:54

I'm 30 weeks and every single week has dragged by!
I went into labour the day I stopped work with my first. She's now 22 months and im still working part time for the next 6 weeks at least.
Enjoy the time alone, clean, rest, sort baby stuff, watch tv and I'm sure it'll fly by for you.

Inglori0us Mon 10-Feb-14 16:17:35

Sorry if that sounded negative. I'm just fed up of being pregnant! Not enjoyed it at all this time.

TeaAndANatter Mon 10-Feb-14 16:30:33

It won't, it'll all drag by like time itself has stopped (in my opinion) grin. But on the bright side, you're in good company! (31.5 weeks here and counting, no. 3).

30 weeks tomorrow with dc2 and time stands still. 4 more weeks of work. Kill me now!
