Feeling your pain here at 37+4!! I'm exactly same. No more nesting lol- house is a tip and I haven't even done school uniforms for tomorrow! Eating pasta and cheese for tea and child has been doing Minecraft for hours now. We Will Survive This!! xxxx
Know what you mean. I am up half the night with restless legs and sleep part of the day as a result. Trying not to junk-eat as am watching my blood sugar levels but it's hard. Friend wants to meet me tomorrow morning for coffee but I can tell now it's not going to happen. It's 4.14am and my legs are driving me feckin insane. I'll do the school run and come home and go back to bed!
Same here. Totally over it. To make matters worse, where I live it's 25 deg every frigging day. I'm lying on the bed having chest pains...which I THINK is incredibly bad acid reflux. I told my other children that mummy needed a lie down and some quiet. And not to bother me unless they REEEALLY needed to. (Was actually a bit worried!) And my eldest comes to me and says "I need my apple cutting up mummy"
Thanks! I hate it when baby goes all quiet! Earlier today I had a panic and drank some cold coke, lay down and gave him a poke until he moved. He got his own back later.... Hope you can relax at some point too.
Exactly the same! The tiredness, the hunger and eating rubbish followed by the remorse of heartburn and pain because there is NO ROOM, the torment of restless legs, the endless screen time for toddler, plus the return of morning sickness. I'm 36+5 and so, so ready for the end of pregnancy (but also so unprepared for the baby's arrival!).
Completely agree! But am only 36 weeks today so have run out of puff very early! Have no idea how I'm going to wean myself off my cake/ biscuit/ chocolate addiction once the baby's born and I no longer have any excuse. It gets to about 5pm each evening and I realise I have taken nothing out for dinner. Toddler has honed in on my weakest time of the day and asks ever so sweetly to "watch peppa pig while mummy makes dinner" - knowing full well he'll get an hour in front of the tv before I've gotten my act together. More like while mummy has yet another cup of tea, another biscuit and peruses the take-away menu! Such a bad wife And don't even mention the state of the house. A combination of sensory-deprivation tiredness and genuine lack of enthusiasm has removed all nesting instincts. Except just remembered I have the health visitor coming tomorrow morning... Oh crap!
It's all very stressful, especially if you have a wee one to look after already. I'm sure the health visitor will totally understand. Don't be feeling guilty about the telly- they will totally survive and when you eventually feel better you can reinstate telly time rules.
Last night I thought I'd be clever and do some washing while I was up pacing around with restless legs. Managed to set burglar alarm off twice. Durrrr!! Even when I try to do 'nesting' the tiredness gets the better of me!
I had my "birth plan" meeting with the midwives today. I don't know if I mentioned, but I live on an island. So the possibility of me being choppered off, is pretty high! Just another thing to stress about!
