Just having a rant about why the last few weeks always seem the longest,
Seems like only the other week i found out im preg (now 35 wk) but now its like every day takes forever and every night is longer than the days with all the tossing and turning not to mention the countless trips to the toilet!
Anybody els feeling like this?

Yes, only you have 10 weeks on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm 25 weeks, sick of feeling like a narcoleptic sack of spuds, sick of SPD, sick of high bp and sick of being effing preggers!!!! I remember that bit at the end of my first pgy. It was bloody awful. I went 2 weeks overdue (although you probably don't want to know that do you?) and that bit was the worst. It was like being in permanent limbo. Just take heart that the end is nigh. Make the most of being able ti have a bath uninterrupted and being able to drink your tea while it's still hot.

Good luck with the birth!

beware...the last few months flew with me..!!!
It seemed like I would be pregnant forever and the next minute I was only a week away...!!

I'm sure people have said this before to you BUT relax as much as you can, enjoy doing things alone and being able to do what you want when you want becuase once baby arrives its all change (for the good though .) DD is now 1 and I can't believe how quick the last year has gone. I remember how I was when pregnant,I don't think I appreciated "my" time, I was in to much of a rush to see my dd.!! Hey ho...Suppose I wouldn't change it for the world. Good luck xx

It was terrible waiting the last time. This time (am 36 weeks) it's the sudden increased discomfort that's getting me down. Other than that I'm enjoying packing in as much as I can whilst I have the energy to do things with DS1. Every night I go to bed and marvel at the sleep I'm about to get even if it is a bit disturbed by frequent visits to the loo and feeling beached.

Lol... This is my 3rd baby, i aint had a bath on my own or a poo thinking about it for 5 years!
Went over 2 weeks with both of mine, dont think i could stand going so far over with this one... mmmmmmmm...... I feel like a rotting beached wale!

Suddenly in the last two days I'm getting that sensation of a tense ball in my stomach when I do too much. Had to stop walking this morning because my stitch was so bad.

Still at work though and that really helps to keep my mind off it.

dd is our 1st and only child atm. I think back to how blissful it was to sleep from 11pm till 11am esp at weekends without being woken.!

Also, how blissful is it to be able to drive to the postoffice or shops and "pop" in without having a 1year old strapped to your hip..!!! Everything seems to take double the time. Even shopping...tesco yesterday...took me 2 hours to do a usual 1 hour shop..why...coz dd kept smiling at EVERYONE so everyone spoke to her..! . BUT what amazes me most..I can't remember life before her.. .

LTH, I was Moozoboozo, and MB was Happymerryberries (I think) All inspied by some dodgy thread about Scientology.

PS, I haven't congratulated you either-Congrats!!!!!

LadyTophamOfHattingford Wed 31-May-06 15:56:04

AHA! really have no idea how much that has been niggling away at my brain over the weeks. I could remember you and MB having a long names but just couln't work out what they were.

I now can't believe I've totally missed the fact that you are PG.
Thanks for the congrats. if it makes any of you feel better i'm only 8 weeks so I really do ages AGES to go.

<Note to self>
spend more time on mumsnet then you won't miss pregnancy announcments.....hehehehhahahaha

intergalacticwalrus Wed 31-May-06 16:00:03

Well, I didn't really make an announcement, more a half arsed "the line on my test was faint, so am I or aren;t I?" type thread, after which I think I just slunked off to vomit.

Think I am still in denial about it all actually, like it's not a baby, but a really big poo or something. It all came as a bit of a shock!!!!!

Also, gladf I have helped you through nthe namechanging conundrum. It bugs the hell out of me too.

I have been pregnant with this baby for at least 300 weeks already, or so it seems (had a lot of problems which still aren't resolved). Still technically got 9 wks left but am having C-section so probably just 8, know they will drag past real slllllllloooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwww.

Oh tell me about it...
was just saying to dh that it seems surreal that this baby is actually going to come out.

I feel like I have been pregnant for about two years. And the strange thing is that in a way I want to stay pregnant because of my anxiety about what's ahead, but on the other hand I can't wait to meet this baby.

Feel exactly the same way. I feel if I was to be left alone for the remainder of my pregnancy I might enjoy it but not looking forward to next round of scans and tests (starting Monday, yippee)
