To feel jealous of women screaming in pain?

I'm 39+4 weeks pregnant and have been watching some one born every minute repeats. I am insainly jealous of the screaming crying women, I just keep thinking "but I want to be screaming not sitting on the sofa with my raspberry leaf tea!."

I was in hospital yesterday because of high blood pressure and reduced fetal movements, all was fine and i was sitting waiting for my DP to pick me up. A woman walked by puffing, panting and crying, the normal reaction to this would be to think poor her, I hope she is ok but no crazy hormonal me was so envious that it wasn't me.

I am sure that I will be regreting wishing pain upon myself as soon as labour starts but for now I am just fantasizing about debilitatin pain.

When you're screeching in pain remember this thread please. And record the manic screechy laughter that ensues from your crazed mind grin

Not long to go. Enjoy the calm before the storm.

I was so desperate to see my first baby when I was pregnant that on the ward a week or so before he was born I heard a woman screaming in the delivery suite and all I felt was pure jealousy. She would have her baby soon, but there I was, huge, waddling, due and no sign whatsoever of him.

I know I am being so strange! I have spent much of my pregnancy dreading giving birth but now I feel like I just want to get it over with, it feels like standing at the top of a death slide and just wanting to go down as fast as possible not hang around there for 2 weeks!

Screaming is great! It is a natural pain reliever and it helps everyone else in the room feel your pain. Ignore anyone who asks you to be quiet. grin

Hope everything goes brilliantly. thanks

Oh you'll be there soon enough. Remember this thread and get ready for your fanjo to never be the same again! grin

Yanbu! I was in your position this time last year. Screaming in pain is a bit crap but that relief after pushing out the head is immense.

Very funny post........ I think we are right to assume it is a PFB. grin

We had goodbye old fanjo sex yesterday to see if that would encourage the baby to come out but no luck!

I never screamed. I did say fuck a lot.

You'll be fine smile not long now !!

i was a screamer. the midwife told me (between screams) that it wasn't helping. i think i may have screamed 'yes it bloody does' with the next contraction!

It's all about having something to focus on!

Cahoootz Thu 06-Dec-12 21:41:37

Screaming and swearing is the way to go. Might as well enjoy yourself!

grin goodbye old fanjo sex grin. This thread is very funny.

I ended up squatting and jumping a lot a week before labour kicked off. We tried sex too, but DH missed. I had a massive fight with him about that.

Hope you're in debilitating pain really soon wink

Seriously though, good luck with your new baba smile

YANBU - actually having a newborn is so much better than being 9 months pregnant, it's worth the pain!

honeytea Thu 06-Dec-12 21:45:28

Fakebook I would have been furious if DP had missed, it happened a cpuple of times when we were ttc and I was angry then but now it would have been an unforgivable crime.

I watched the swedish version of obem (we live in Sweden) and they didn't scream! I worry maybe it is a cultural difference and I will be the crazy swearing English woman, oh well I am sure I won't care by that point.

I wish I'd screamed & swore a bit more!

Despite being in a lot of pain, I didn't make much noise (just dug my nails in DH) - so much so that the midwife didn't consider me to be in "real labour" and I almost ended up having DS2 in the hospital lift. grin

Hope you get your wish soon and all goes well thanks

YANBU. It's going to hurt whether baby comes out now or in 2 weeks, I'd rather get it over and done with too! Plus in 2 weeks the baby will be even bigger your poor fanjo

honeytea Thu 06-Dec-12 21:50:37

Plus in 2 weeks the baby will be even bigger your poor fanjo I had a scan yeterday and he is already 4.2 kg, the sonographer said he could be 4.5 kg (10 lb) if I go over my due date confused

Thank you for all the kind wishes and thanks s smile

You definitely won't care at that point, but you might feel a bit embarrassed afterwards. That's ok too though, I think we all do blush grin

Funny isn't it? I spent most of my first pregnancy absolutely dreading childbirth, then the last two weeks actively trying to bring it on.

Cahoootz Thu 06-Dec-12 21:58:21

The screaming and swearing isn't embarrassing it's the having millions possibly more of medical students gawping looking at the fanjo aftermath that's embarrassing.

I did not scream... at all... I was too busy sucking the gas and air so that i was off somewhere else for the duration.. grin
