I'm just venting some frustration and having a good old moan. If you would like to join in please feel free.
Anyone else nearly, so nearly at the end of finishing work? I've still got about
3 weeks to go and everyone, I mean everyone and everything is getting up my nose!

a)My boss' voice just gets my back up straight away. Plus she's being super lazy and passing her work on to me! HA she'll be sorry when I'm gone!

b)People on the tube I just want to punch, their pushing, shoving and not giving up seats to a pregnant lady attitude!

c)Random strangers who do a double take at my bump, I want to scream; "YES! I'm pregnant get over it!"

d) I am so unmotivated to do anything at work, it's like my mind has switched off already. And Facebook isn't cutting the mustard...

e)I can't walk very fast now and it takes me ages to get from my desk to the toilet, which, incidently I have to do more frequently now!

f)I just want to be at home nesting and making everything nice and ready for the baby. And I'm resenting the fact that WORK is getting in the way!

Oh god, I could go on, but I'm tiring of my own grumpiness! Thank god for MN!
Think the hormones are kicking in. My poor DH...

oh god i feel your pain and the ridiculous thing (on my part) is I'm only 23 weeks!!!! Work can just take a running jump.

in response to comment b) I think this is just AWFUL! are people really so inconsiderate????

Im a teacher so am just waiting for summer hols this week; 6 weeks to relax and do sweet f.a apart from nice things will be so lovely. Coming back in sept as big as a house will be so not lovely. If I can't be arsed now, I dread to think what I'll be like in sept!!!!!!!!

Also, your boss needs to do one, passing her work onto you is just out of order!!!!! ESPECIALLY in your late pregnancy stage! she should be making it EASIER FOR YOU!!!!!! B*@#H. hehe! smile

The tube is the seventh circle of hell...I feel your pain.

I had a woman last week apologise to me for pushing my (large and obvious) bump stating that she was late for work and just had to get on the tube. I advised her to remove her elbow from my bump or she would feel my fist in her face - I think she knew I meant it!

People of London - don't mess with the large, sweaty preggo woman in the ill fitting suit, you don't know what level of crazy you are dealing with.

My boss is also being an ass, TBH my list of grievances is endless. Four weeks to go, and now breath ;-)

Thanks ladies, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Think you're right just keep breathing and keep counting down those days!
Roz, don't think about September - September can do one! Worry about it much, much later. You'll be full of zen after your 6 weeks of relaxation smile
Thecokemachine, I agree with the list of grievances, I sometimes have to stop myself when friends ask how I am and I let off a tirade of abuse! You've not got long either. We must keep telling ourselves it's just round the corner!

I have one week to go and have never been so unmotivated and am longing for the summer holidays! I am a teacher too but I am 34 weeks this week so after next wednesday thats me till next June! Everyone at work keeps asking me when I am due and lots of other things about baby. i have lost count of how many have told me I look tired and fed up - That just makes me more fed up! I did not think I looked that bad. To make it worse fellow pregnant friends have had their babies this week just to compound the wait! I just know baby is going to be late too as my two little boys were both late! Come on August 30th! I just cant wait to meet our little girl! x
