I have 39 days left (AND COUNTING) until my planned cs on 11th april

I am fat, fed up, knackered, aching, heartburn-ridden and absolutely DESPERATE for the baby to be out. this will be dc3 and deffo my LAST

anyone else got a similar amount of time left and want a thread where we can share the joys of the final stretch of pregnancy

currently todays bugbear is my needing a wee constantly, which will no doubt keep me up all night again

Beanypip Mon 03-Mar-14 20:36:45

30 days until my planned section on the 2nd april and it cant come quick enough! I have a just 2 year old who cant walk and a painful back condition so im constantly whinging and grumpy. added to all that im moving house at 38 weeks shock
im not one to make it easy for myself as you can see!

hope you feel better tomorrow. those people that say enjoy the end and dont wish it over obviously didn't have other kids!

juliec26 Mon 03-Mar-14 20:46:16

Oo i will join .. Due date 9th April with dc3 .. Currently stuck on sofa as can barely walk anymore .. Last day at work this Friday ..really struggling now, especially with 2 other dc .. Think I might take myself to bed and do my hypno birthing. Cd lol x

mostlyconfused Mon 03-Mar-14 21:20:30

I'm due the 22nd March and hoping to go early!

Heartburn is the worst and getting up about 20 times a night to pee.

I've convinced myself I'm going to go early. I'll be gutted if I end up late!

Beanypip Mon 03-Mar-14 21:34:29

I was convinced I would be early with dd1 ended up being induced and she was forced out. sorry not what you wanted to hear!

ladylegume Mon 03-Mar-14 21:41:50

1st april (silly but really hoping im not on my due date!) am i the only one wishing i could have another few months or so to prepare?!! im not ready, eeeek!!

Misty9 Mon 03-Mar-14 21:53:10

9th April here. Still feels like an age away and have ds (2.5yo) to keep me busy grin planning a water homebirth but who knows what the baby has planned...

Oli31 Mon 03-Mar-14 22:29:58

Hi everyone, I've got 6 weeks to go (due 18th April) and 3 weeks left at work. Still feeling ok, but haven't had much time to think about/prepare for the new arrival with a toddler dashing about! Feeling very unprepared... Good luck to you all!

HelenHen Mon 03-Mar-14 22:33:45

Due 16th April. Think nesting kicked in today... I cleaned a couple of Windows lol

Inglori0us Mon 03-Mar-14 22:35:40

21st April but have a giant breech baby so likely to be much sooner.
Unbelievably hacked off with this pregnancy.
Keep browsing wine on the internet.

mostlyconfused Tue 04-Mar-14 09:42:48

I was desperate for a glass of wine on Sunday. I was so grumpy because of that!
I'm just about organised but worried about maybe ending up with a c section again and how I'll cope with a new born and a nearly 3 year old!
I want to go early but better not go before 9th March cos I've for tickets for Michael Buble!

Inglori0us Tue 04-Mar-14 10:26:31

I just want to get past my dd's 2nd birthday party on 22nd March. Then this one can come out any time he wants.

Diamondsareagirls Tue 04-Mar-14 10:29:23

DTs are due on 14th April but I have a feeling they are going to be here earlier than that. Not sure I am going to be able to move if I get much bigger. Trying not to wish time away but so fed up of the constant toilet trips and waking up every hour because of sore hips sad

balenciaga Tue 04-Mar-14 10:37:19

hello all !

and welcome to my thread haha ;)

diamonds oh god I feel for you with twins it must be agony. and I am the same with the sore hips its horrid

and lol inglorious and mostlyconfused I am desperate for wine as well, have had a couple of half glasses this pregnancy topped up with lemonade but is not the same it it.... sigh

and those of you still at work, bloody hell, I honestly take my hat off to you, I don't know how you manage. I worked til 37 weeks with dc1 but god only knows how I did it.

am also sick of the constant needing to pee, I don't know whether its better to drink loads or try not to drink much? thing is I am just so thirsty all the time.

it sounds awful but I am hoping to go early too. blush well anytime from say 36 weeks. as am having a section and if I went into labour they would whip the baby out as an emergency.

have any of you found out the sex? we are having a DD. but I have this strange feeling its going to be a boy for some mad reason

prettyinpink90 Tue 04-Mar-14 10:43:28

I'm due 18th April!

I finished work last Friday and so glad I have as I just feel so tired all of the time... I had to take two naps yesterday. These 9 months are flying by and I'm starting to feel completely unprepared for her arrival... although we really do have everything we need and more.

How is everyone feeling about impending childbirth? Bit going to lie, I'm so scared!!!

wishiwasrunning Tue 04-Mar-14 10:57:16

I'm due 4th April with my 3rd, can't get there quick enough!

I've got a very active 2yo who wants to get out on his bike and I just want to sit here. No nesting yet, and not very organised for new baby.

Maybe nesting will kick in next week?

Really wish I hadn't arranged a play date at ours later, I just want to sit down!! Will probably end up doing pancakes for all!!

Also desperate for a glass of wine!!

schmalex Tue 04-Mar-14 12:22:08

I've got a CS planned for the 22nd March. Can't wait!

BlessedAssurance Tue 04-Mar-14 12:28:19

Due date 27th of march. My one and only request is that the baby comes after my DC's 4th birthday which is on the 31st of march.

Kellyjdancer Tue 04-Mar-14 12:32:29

Due 9th April with my first. I'm convinced I'll go the full two weeks over. I'm suffering high blood pressure and UNBELIEVABLE swelling. I used to have ankles... And I'm convinced I'll never be able to wear my wedding rings again... And I swear my lady parts are swollen!

Ah, that felt good to moan!!

HelenHen Tue 04-Mar-14 13:10:28

Would yas not just have a glass of wine? grin there's plenty of research that says red makes them more intelligent! With my first, about every month I had a quarter glass of wine and drank it over about 4 hours! Made me feel human smile

He's 20 months now and not yet showing any signs of super intelligence! sad

wishiwasrunning Tue 04-Mar-14 14:04:20

I've had the odd glass here and there but it's not the same! Always worrying and never finish it.

Inglori0us Tue 04-Mar-14 14:17:03

Oh god yes, I've been having a weekly allowance of wine but it's not that satisfying. I want a good few big glasses and not have to try to make it last! Such a wino.
Just been out for pizza lunch with my dd and took delivery of my new (totally ancient & battered) Phil & Teds double buggy.
Now having a little rest while dd naps.

badfurday Tue 04-Mar-14 14:26:11

Afternoon. Im due a month today :-)
Still at work for another 4 weeks, but have two days annual leave this week which is a god send, and after that 3 full weeks.
I feel massive all of a sudden this week. Managed to get a good nights sleep last night, just not enough, 6am alarm is no fun when you are this pregnant!
Id give anything to snooze on my desk right now.
Hopefully we can all get each other through the next few weeks.

Diamondsareagirls Tue 04-Mar-14 14:36:58

I have just finished work this week. Couldn't have done it much longer! I have been having the odd glass of wine just to make myself feel normal and not like an incubator.

We found out the sexes; we are having a DD and a DS.

Inglori0us Tue 04-Mar-14 15:09:52

I'm having a boy, well a giant if the growth scan is to be believed.
