An I the only weird person who feels like this?

I'm 39 weeks and everyone keeps saying I I must be fed up and can't wait for it to be over now but I actually don't feel like that at all.

I'm quite enjoying the pregnancy and I'm hoping to get my last week to myself and spend as much time with my ds1 before the baby arrives.

Although I'm really excited to meet the baby and have lots of newborn cuddles and the baby is very much wanted I'm not looking forward to sleepless nights and nappies again so I'm making the most of my last bit of peace and quiet for a while. I also seem to have found a surge of energy which I'm liking.

I also found last time I missed all the kicks and hiccups (even though I had the real thing), there's something quite amazing about lying in bed watching your bump move knowing your baby is safely tucked up in there.

I'm a strange for thinking like this, everyone else seems to be really fed up at this stage.

I'm almost 37 weeks and I feel the same. I want DC2 to stay in there as long as possible! I too want to enjoy my time with DS1 (he is 4) and I'm no where near as prepared for the new baby compared to my first pregnancy. Have been working full time in a stressful job and am finally on maternity leave and want to enjoy it!!! I know lots of things will change when new baby is here and I'm really not ready for that to happen just yet, I'm hoping for a surge of energy too!!! X

What a refreshing post OP! I often see on here women 'wanting the baby out' way before term, which I know they don't mean seriously it's more just a moan. I had my DS at 36 weeks and I'd be so happy to get to 39 this time. You've got the rest of your lives together, I don't really understand all the rushing to get them out asap, but then my perspective is different

I was totally the same OP, it's an amazing feeling having your baby safe inside you, hiccuping an all!
I also found a lot of my friends said they hated being pregnant, I guess it all depends on pain and sickness etc

I was desperate to get dd1 out as I had terrible fluid retention and was enormous and couldn't move.

With dd2 I had a very neat bump, was really enjoying being pregnant, lnew it was our last baby and was actually quite gutted when she appeared the day before her due date lol. I still cry when I see my bump pics. I miss it so much.

Glad I'm not the only one, I appreciate that some people have difficult pregnancies I've been really lucky

I do think that because this will most definitely be my last one I'm probably a bit sad about that too.

Good luck everyone!
