I feel rotten, nothing really specific just general non specific really! Here goes I'm knackered, not sleeping, restless legs, big uncomfy bump that is prodding and poking out everywhere, hot and sweaty, can't breathe coz bump so high, achy weak tired legs, crampy twinges down below, heartburn!!!!!! I want it over now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No comfort, all I can say is you're not alone. I'm 38 weeks on Thursday and I am officially over being pregnant. I'm about to hide in the bathtub, it's the only place I feel halfway comfortable - I only have one possible sleep-position left and my feet are permanently swollen.

It's about time he vacated the premises prods bump!

Same here. No practical advice but wanted to let you know you're not alone- it's like waiting for Christmas without knowing what date it's on and getting annoyed thinking "is it today?," every sodding morning. Aaaargh!

I feel your pain!! 36 weeks & hoping baby comes soon! Getting so sick of not sleeping comfortably, heart burn, getting out of breath just walking upstairs etc etc. keep telling myself it will all be over soon.....

Me too at 37+4. Night time is no longer a time of slumber, what with being wide awake from 2-4am every single night and leg cramps that bring tears to my eyes. I sometimes go to turn over from my left side to my right side to give my hips a break, and just give up with a sob halfway through the manoeuvre as it is so damn painful with the SPD. Pregnancy is an absolute joy and wonder but looking forward very much to feeling human again - ELCS a week Friday so not long to go now.

Another big, moany "me toooooooo!" here. 36 weeks and not sleeping, crampy, hormonal, breathless, tired and generally feeling like an 85 year old who has just run a marathon. In high heels.

My fabulous mood is not helped by the fact that I'm going to be moving continents within 6 weeks of the baby's birth and still not sure which one we'll end up on. sad sad

37 weeks here and feeling exactly the same! I wonder if any women out there love the last few weeks of pregnancy....
2 more days of work left until I can be miserable and uncomfortable at home instead. I can't see any "nesting" occurring in the next 3 weeks. I haven't been able to put my own socks on for the last 2 weeks, so cleaning the house seems unlikely.

Had to buy new shoes earlier, some flip flops. The plain fatties I bought last week as none of my normal shoes fit are now too small as well and my feet just spill over the edge like big, pudgy, doughy splodges.

Come now please baby.

I relate, 37+6 today and totally fed up. Struggle to sleep due to heart burn and I can't walk because my pelvis hurts.

SicknSpan Thu 15-May-14 12:45:42

randdom we've got the same due date smile

Walking is awful. Sitting is awful lying down no fun either.

Trying so hard to be positive but not working!

I bought crocs - they leave little round holey imprints on my swollen feet, like the old school Tardis! Grump. Induction is booked for the 1st of June but if he's not out by next week and I still feel crap I am seriously tempted to move it forward.

Wow adaloveslace-that's hardcore!
Feet & hands have also swollen up in this heat & I've had to take off my wedding rings as they're pretty tight alreadyhmm
