Does anyone else feel this way? I'm only 31+2 so less than 8 weeks until elcs but I am so so over being pregnant!!

angelopal Thu 20-Feb-14 11:36:25

Yes. 39+3 and so fed up of heartburn and feeling like a beached whale.

Julietee Thu 20-Feb-14 12:16:45

Yes. Pregnancy might as well be forever. I am a huge globe woman and I feel sad sad (39+4)

SweetPea86 Thu 20-Feb-14 12:21:27

Yep 33 weeks and just teary eyed today. Sick off feeling sick, back ache short of breathe. Totally grateful I'm pregnant but just want him to be here now I'm so down in the dumps.

Inglori0us Thu 20-Feb-14 20:17:17

Yup. Been pregnant for about 2 years (or 32 weeks).
Fed up, fat, slow, annoyed, hormonal, can't sleep, not enjoying food, pelvic pain, carpal tunnel, I could go

Inglori0us Thu 20-Feb-14 20:18:03

on.
Just want the baby out. And a couple of large glasses of wine.

Just shy of 35 weeks here.

Baby was almost taken out at 30+3 due to horrendous norovirus affecting us both and am now on anti-contraction meds to keep him in yet I still veer between thinking "stay in until 37 weeks kid" and "get the fuck out now".

I am clinging on to the good points that a) I've only suffered 2 days of heartburn this pregnancy instead of 2 months of it in the last one; and b) I'm still sleeping 10 hours a night with one pee break.

Small things ladies, small things :-)

Yep just posted exactly the same!! 30+1 and want it to end now..... Thank god I'm not the only one and yes......... Wine please!!!

35 weeks. 35 very long, tiring weeks. 36 on Wednesday. Which scares the shit out of me because then there's just a week until baby is considered full term. And what I wouldn't give to be allowed a bottle of wine to dull the worry at what is waiting right at the end of pregnancy and the start of motherhood.

MummyPig24 Sun 23-Feb-14 02:56:42

I feel like an elephant. This is the longest pregnancy in the history of pregnancies. And I'm only 37 weeks so I have a potential 5 weeks to go. God it can't go on for another 5 weeks, surely that would be cruel?!

lighteningmcmama Sun 23-Feb-14 06:58:47

About 2 months and I already feel like that

colleysmill Sun 23-Feb-14 07:27:06

I felt like this last week - I'm nearly 39 weeks and booked in for a section this week. I'm getting a bit apprehensive now though

CrispyFB Sun 23-Feb-14 12:04:40

Yep. Now 36 weeks (by NHS dates anyway, more like 35+3 by ovulation) and it has basically been an eternity. As I have a history of preterm labour I always feel like I'm on edge for baby to come out which makes things feel longer!

I do know that the 9 months post birth goes extra fast to make up for pregnancy though - once she's here, Christmas will show up five minutes later, I just know it.

PiratesMam Sun 23-Feb-14 13:05:55

38+3 here. Doesn't help that people keep actually saying "wow, you've been pregnant for ages!" hmm Does help that I can see light at the end of the tunnel now though. Never again!

Thisismyfirsttime Sun 23-Feb-14 15:57:02

I've been pregnant for at least 10 years and I need space! Space for my stomach, space for my bladder, space for my lungs, personal space. And I'm still only 29 weeks!

iloveweetos Sun 23-Feb-14 16:01:49

33+5 here
And desperate to not have heartburn and to have space for my lungs!!
Can't wait to have some wine and just want to see the baby now! Dd is so bored waiting for the baby too!

Loopylouu Sun 23-Feb-14 16:16:56

Yes! I am 35 weeks this week.

But, I also had a mc last year and then fell pregnant first cycle after that.

So, I fell pregnancy in Jan last year, a months break after the mc then have been pregnant ever since. In my head (and the way my body felt/feels) I have been pregnant for 13 months already.

I wan the heartburn gone, I want to be able to take a deep breath, I want to be able to turn over in bed without dh having to winch me over, I want to couch without peeing my pants.......

Section is four weeks away.

SaucyJack Sun 23-Feb-14 17:22:15

39+4 here.

It'll all be over soon <repeats to self in manner of Irish mother from Titanic film>

I'm 37 weeks today and have shouted 'Get out. GET OUT!' more than once today. It's gone fast because I have DS1 to run round after, but it's also dragged because I found out when I was about 12 seconds pregnant.
I feel sick, I am exhausted and I can't breathe.

I shouldn't have been so quick to shout get out though because my smart hospital-wear isn't being delivered until tomorrow and all I have in my hospital bag is breast pads and makeup.

34 weeks tomorrow.

I'm full to bursting with my gigantic +90th percentile child who is made entirely of elbows, 800 gallons of amniotic fluid and other seemingly non-essential things like lung capacity and a stomach.

I'm so fecking uncomfortable and all anyone can say is 'not long now!' lying twunts.

I can't do another 6 weeks, let alone 8 confused I can't, I tell you! I CAN'T!!

LJBanana Sun 23-Feb-14 19:44:34

Same same and same.
37+3 here-that + 3 counts as it means nearly 38. I have been sick nearly everyday have spd and with 2 ds' already I have nil energy.
I keep reminding myself that I won't ever do this again-but I'm over it now. So over it!

Legalbaby79 Sun 23-Feb-14 20:58:20

30+3 and a size of a small elephant with the bladder of a mouse !!!!! However I have been blessed not to have heartburn and my sickness has stopped shock

JustCallMeBaldrick Sun 23-Feb-14 21:01:24

40 weeks today, and thoroughly pissed off. I don't want to be pregnant anymore, I've had enough. I want a nice squishy newborn instead please. Now.

Writerwannabe83 Sun 23-Feb-14 21:05:05

35wks+2 and over the past week I cannot believe how things have changed.

I'm no longer glowingly pregnant, I'm a waddling, exhausted, uncomfortable incubator. I'm suddenly aware that my body is now preparing to produce and nourish a baby and it feels very odd!!

Heartburn is back and twice as bad.
Baby movements are now more painful than enjoyable.
My thighs rub together when I walk and everything just feels bigger 'down there'.
I'm breathless most of the time.
Even my maternity clothes don't fit properly anymore so I look quite trampy most days.
I'm fed up of my heavy boobs hanging down over my bump - so sweaty and uncomfortable!!
I can't stop burping!!

The worst thing is that I no longer care how gross I have become - I just don't have the energy to care. I plan to hide myself away for the next month!!!!
