I can't wait to meet my baby. It's been a long hard pregnancy and I can finally see the end.

I feel like I'm constipated with an elephant (fitting seeing as giving birth is like pooing an elephantwink). When I bend down its like its going to break free (if only).

Trying very hard to enjoy the last few weeks of my hopefully last pregnancy. The 4hour stretches of sleep. The ability to have a bath/meal/cup of tea when I like (ds depending) and living by day, sleeping by night. Loving ds speaking to bump and his excitement with our new family. Reading books and preparing.

I can't wait for the sickness, spd, heartburn etc to go.

Had to tell someone dh is still in denial and doesn't really understand the level of excitement.

Hi congrats bet you can't wait me and dh are pregnant with our first I'm soo excited as is he but defiantly more so me, we are having a ds he flails around none stop and as soon as dh is around he hardly moves! Typical I defiantly think they are excited but can't comprehend the little life inside like we can. I'm 25+3 so ages yet but it's day is creeping by faster than I realise been on daily countdown for ages lol 102 days now I can't wait for double figures! Good luck and be sure to let us know when dc arrives! X

What a nice thread.

With all the worry and anxiety it is easy to forget that something wonderful is going to happen soon!

I have a calendar month to go and I am not enjoying it!! But your thread made me think about meeting my daughter etc. So thanks. thanks

Hope the coming weeks are kind to you.

Ahhh. Hope it flies by for you.

I'm being induced tomorrow. I'm 38 weeks with DC 5. Never been induced before, so feeling quite scared. Really looking forward to meeting our new baby though.
