Just the last couple of days I've become so impatient to have my baby, at the point where I just want to have a tantrum because I want her now! The problem is I'm only 26 +1, I have forever to go.... am I just going to get more impatient as the days drag on?
Oooh I'm 26+2, WendyWillow, you're the closest person to me on due date I've seen on MN! I'm just really impatient to finish work and not be pregnant any more. I'm trying to go with the flow and not stress too much about how much longer I've got to go for both work and pregnancy!
Yup. I am 34 wks and this is my 3rd and longest pg yet and its dragging. Tbf I will def have baby in the next 4 wks either naturally or by induction but that's aaaaages. I have medical issues that mean 3 hospital apps every week and it is getting really shit having to go back and forth especially as I don't drive and live in the sticks so it takes an hour and 2 busesto get there. I wish baby would hurry up. This is bloody good innings for me and I'm feeling overstretched and fed up!
Yes, and I'm finding it slightly confusing.. I want to hold the baby in my arms, but I know when I do, I'll also miss having it inside me. And I also know dh and I should be making the most of this time, our last few months just the two of us, but we're so impatient. Even though, obviously, I don't want it to be born at 25 weeks.. DH is also desperate to hold his baby, and I really want to see the two of them together.
Definitely, you want to try to enjoy where you are, we went through IVF to get here so may never be pregnant again so I should really try to savour all the movements etc, but....
I really want to know what colour her eyes are, see if she sucks her thumb, see whose nose she inherits (hopefully not mine!), see if her hair will be curly or straight, watch her curl up asleep on OH's chest when we have a cosy afternoon in front of the fire with snow outside (rosy tinted specs on here), so many things to find out about her.
All I can say is well done to all those over 30 weeks and haven't gone crazy yet with impatience, you have my admiration!
I am 27+4 and have moments of total impatience and feeling so desperate for little one to arrive (and as Wendy says know eye colour etc. and for us gender as we have chosen to keep it a surprise!) but then also feel like I have lots to do and prepare before the big day so glad I still have some time.....but yes, am mainly impatient!
14 weeks until my due date and I'm torn. Half of me is bloody uncomfortable and horribly aware (this being my 3rd baby) that it only gets worse from here on in to the finish line, wants the baby out and is desperate to meet her. The other part of me knows just how Hard it is with a newborn and is not lookin forward to sleepless nights, sore nipples and the general chaos that is involved
I'm 38+4 and I do feel ready to not be pregnant anymore, however, it struck me the other day that if I am no longer pregnant, it will mean that I have had to give birth and have a newborn to look after (on too of a 2.6yo)!!! I can't wait to meet him or her but equally am not sure I'm ready to be a new baby's mummy again just yet
