ok bit early yet am 34 w tomorrow, but today I burst into tears cos DS's little face looked so sad & he was fighting the tears and then we both started crying.

(he'd been given a 'lucky dip' for good behavior which he decided he didn't like/want & wanted a second try at having one, but he knows that I don't allow second chances it's first try or nothing. oh & he'd grazed his knee when DP was bringing him home from school which I patched up - think it was more his knee tbh) but felt awful seeing his little face.

and y'day was in tears over marley & me/something stupid DP had said. Hormones have been all over the show this pg. so how soon can we work on getting this baby out?!?

Oh bless you, it's a nightmare isn't it, I was like a soggy sponge for most of my pregnancy! I am going to be brutal though and say 1) you probably have 4wks at least to go and 2) the baby will come when he/she is ready.

In the meantime, lots of cuddles, chocolate, foot rubs and early nights smile

I was totally fed up at this point with dd3. Dh firmly pointed out though that they didn't want a 34 week baby so would I please wrap up. I had to concede he had a point (how annoying!)

Hang in there smile

alas I know, I do not want a baby born at 34 weeks - 38 is plenty (was plenty enough with DS)

<sign.... god damn hormones> wouldn't be so bad if i'd not gone off chocolate. grin

It's a nightmare! I cry at anything! DS then always asks "what's wrong Mummy?" and that always makes it worse!

I think I hit the pregnancy wall at about 34 weeks, but within a week or so I realised that I could be pregnant for another 2 months, so I gave myself a verbal slap a decided to enjoy the last few weeks. Being miserable makes the hours, days, weeks drag. I especially enjoyed the last few weeks with just ds and I, I look back at that time and realise how precious it was as I just don't have the one to one time with ds now the baby is here.

Also, however much you try, the baby will come when it's good and ready. Trying every old wives tale under the sun is just exhausting and pointless.

If you change your attitude the weeks will go by quicker, I promise!

Oh dear - it'll only get worse, as I'm sure you know smile

I cried in a hospital appt last week - proper snotty crying. It was the only one ds has been to as well. Anyhow, he sat there patting my knee and rubbing my back saying 's'alright, s'ok, s'alright...'

He is 4. blush

I've hit the wall already and am only 28 weeks (mind you I am hopelessly over-emotional at the best of times)

I We lost the sat-nav a few weeks ago, and I found it again on Sunday. This caused me to cry proper sobbing tears confused. Explain that one then!

But I'm led to believe that even the most hardened men cry over Marley & Me so I think you can forgive yourself a little there smile

H pon - yes marley & me, doesn't help that i've had a m/c and my GSD did the exact same thing & is very simialr in personality to marley - plus he had an operation last week which is quite serious.

button/Kat - yes I know it will. sad DS is the same he's 5 - he says 'mummy why is there tears in your eyes?'

I like to move it - yes I know you're right as well, I do intend to take DS out for treats the weekends before plus with it being the school holidays, we have (hopefully a full week) where he's off & i'm off when we can do fab things together. then the week after he's with his dad, which is a shame in some ways, but good in others for me to rest. he is a little darling.
