39+1 - kick up the bum needed to stop me being needlessly miserable! Ranty!

Right, 39+1 and woke up feeling sick, bloated, heavy and miserable. Crying at all sorts for no reason and my poor 20 month DS is having a day of CBEEBIES, Winter Olympics and Dumbo as I have no energy to entertain him.

I'm having an ELCS on Monday so feel nervous about that (had one last time for breech so know what to expect - had a wound infection and problems BF so dreading a repeat of all that).

I unreasonably resent DH for going to work today instead of asking to work from home, even though I know it's best he's in the office to get things done as he's off for a month after today. He was being very sweet and reassuring this morning and it just made me want to scream.

So, fundamentally there's nowt wrong and I'm just being an arse - please give me a kick up the bum to stop this needless self pity and misery grin

I'm not going to kick you but I will offer a hand to hold. 37.1 and due either early labour or induction at 39 weeks. I spent the day crying yesterday, and I swing between excited and scared.
You/we are completely normal. Have a cuppa and join your little one on the sofa! smile brew thanks

I am glad I am not the only one.

I am 27 weeks and for the past 2 days have been holding back the tears at work and burst when I drive home. I am one normally to give as good as I get but to be greeted by - 'Hello fatty' when I got into work this morning did not help. I feel big and uncomfortable enough without being reminded!
My husband cant seem to do anything right, everything he does annoys me. People think its ok to patt me and its all they talk about. I need to get over myself before I flip!

Thanks for the support folks - feeling more human today despite a lousy night's sleep thanks to house alarms going off and DS coughing himself awake, poor thing!

Hope you all have a good day today.
