Tired
Grumpy
Tearful
Fed up
Aching calves/shins
Smelly wind
Some bump tightenings (no pain)

Having a day of it today- she's due Wednesday but just feel like I've been pregnant forever and will continue to be pregnant forever with no signs of imminent labour at all. Grrrrrrrr!!!

All signs that labor is close, but since your due Wednesday you already know labor is close!

Sorry, not very helpful!

Bless you. Give it time. smile
I had most of those for a week or 2 the whole 9 months before dd was born. Its more a case of your body gearing up I think.
That's the thing with labour. It can start slowly and last g or days or be over really quickly. there's no knowing!
Just keep your eyes on the prize and remember this CANT go on forever. smile

oh i hope so.

I'm 36 weeks but am tired and tearful. Pelvic pain and backache on standing. Constant need to wee, worse when standing. Can't surely have another 4 weeks of this. Tell me it'll be soon.

I feel your pain, also due on Wednesday and am so fed up and emotional, spent all weekend symptom spotting and getting texts from all and sundry asking if I've had any signs yet. Lost my mucus plug on Saturday and got really excited but nothing since then and if anything baby feels higher up than she did last week! I'm booked for a sweep and acupuncture on Thursday so hoping that will move things along and get this baby shifted! Good luck to you, hopefully things will get moving for you soon!

Just can't believe how much of a mood change this is for me- I'm properly hormonal just like I was as a teenager before I got a period- I'm crying for no reason at all and just don't know what to do with myself.
