Another grumpy pregnant lady thread

Ugh, really feeling it today. I'm 40+1 and have found it difficult to enjoy Xmas this year as I've been in constant edge waiting for labour to begin. Poor DH doesn't know if he's coming or going, and has now got a cold which has really pissed him off (he's worrying about passing it on to me be the baby).

I'm hoping to get a sweep today at MW appointment after being refused last time, which was a bit early I suppose. But now I see that the main roads into our hospital are flooded! Add to this my SPD and the return of morning sickness, plus a look like an over inflated Michelin woman...

God help anyone that texts 'any news yet?' today, as the answer will be 'Yes, and none of it good!' angry

Please join in and make me feel less alone!

I have just given birth (sorry) but was unbearably grumpy in the last week.. Fortunately my parents got all the 'any news' texts and whenever they told me that family etc had been asking I bit their head off.
So you have a MAXIMUM of 9 days left??? Utter tops. That was all that helped me in the end.. That and knowing I was NEVER going to do this again!
Good luck, kxx

Perfectly normal to feel grumpy in the last week. It's irritating painful and tiring. Hope it's not too long now x

40+5 here and I am OVER it!!! Can't move without pain and discomfort. I'm waiting for DH to come home so we can order a chinese. Hopefully that will get things moving.

Congratulations! Don't apologise, that's great news

Dearest DH has been running a social media campaign on my behalf to try and head off a lot of the calls/texts to save my nerves. Bless him!

I'm feeling a bit better as I had my sweep earlier. Now it's a case of fingers crossed

Fingers cross but not legs!!!

It could be worse. You could be 6+1 with nausea, getting over flu, and a terrible phobia of being sick. Feel any better? grin

I remember the 40+ days though. It's shit.

I used to wake up every day for at 6 months after each baby and just think 'I'm SO happy I'm not pregnant anymore!'

You're nearly there OP.

I could have written this! Big, crampy, uncomfortable and grumpy! Have ignored so many texts today asking if any movement! I'm only 40+1 today too...

There were three seperate phone calls from PILs yesterday. Luckily for me DH won't let me answer the phone anymore so he can filter out the nosey people from those that actually do want to talk to me. He's also taken to putting up blanket statuses on Facebook to try to stop the texts etc.

Fingers crossed we all get some joy soon. Happy new year to you all!

Just wanted to say I am in the same boat. 40+3 and insanely fed up. I think the mornings are the worst when you wake up STILL pregnant and just can't face another day of it. I think because I assume labour is more likely to start at night. Have you had any signs at all? I've got grumbly lower back/period type pains but they are stubbornly refusing to turn into anything. What's making it even worse is my toddler's nursery is closed between Xmas and NY so having to try and entertain a lively 2 yr old all day every day with zero energy. The timing could not be worse...

Still at least it's looking more hopeful than with DC1 when I had no signs of anything at all, and went to 42+1 before giving in and being induced...
