Anyone got any tips to keep your sanity in the last few weeks? Or would just like to have a bit of a moan?
I'm 39 weeks, been on mat leave for 2 weeks and bored silly, can't sleep for more than 2 hours at a time, and already getting about 3 messages a day asking if baby is here!
I haven't resorted to pineapple or sideways stairs walking yet, but I think it could be time to start!

Sideways stair walking? That's a new one for me lol!

Apparently it's a thing! Or walking with one leg on the kerb and one leg off... But thought if I said kerb walking that would make me look even worse grin

Lol! grin I'm 41 weeks tomorrow, baby showing no signs of budging. I've tried everything as well, but now eyeing the stairs

Get on the overdue club thread! I'm a MN tech phobe and have no idea how to link. It's under pregnancy.

Ooh I didn't know there was one... Do I count if I'm not overdue, just impatient and mardy? :p

39 weeks tomorrow here with Baby #2.

I'm back and forth (and back and forth again) between wanting to get on with labour and get it over with to being worried about day-to-day coping with two kids back to wanting to meet this new baby and give him a cuddle then on to worrying how DD (3) will respond to being a big sister and at least a hundred other worries alongside those ones! Isn't pregnancy a wonderful time? grin

I'm feeling it too.. 39 weeks on Monday and feel like I've been pregnant for years now lol
Getting impatient, wanting to meet my little one.
If anyone does find something that takes their mind off it for a bit, please let me know smile
Hope our babies hurry up for us now :D
