I've been horrible to be around, nice one minute and stressed and over reacting the next. We haven't got any petrol in the car and its Xmas eve, car seat is not fitted, I could go any day now.

Any body else heavily pregnant and being a Grinch? I have a lovely partner (really really fantastic and sooo cool about me being horrible) and he is being very patient with my stress head.

I'm just venting on here as I think me being apologetic/stressed/happy/mood-swingy in RL is getting annoying now. I'm just so frickking uncomfortable with a big pregnant belly!!

Not just you! I'm feeling down as I was convinced baby would be here by now. Now I'm convinced it'll "ruin" Xmas day by me being in labour/hospital all day then instead. Can't win. It's getting me down.

Aaw sad I think if you do go into labour tomorrow, everyone will be very excited rather than feel its been ruined. We are driving 20 miles away tomorrow so am taking hospital bags and un-prepared carseat just in case. Hope you have a nice day tomorrow anyway. Any signs?

How far are you both?
I'm 41+3 today, I've been having stop-start labour signs all week. I'm tired, uncomfortable, frustrated and very very fed up right now. Terrified about going into labour tonight. Tomorrow afternoon is ok, but I have 3 children upstairs asleep (well almost!) and I want to be here in the morning to see their faces. Though I always said if it happened tonight it will be a homebirth. I will not go into hospital unless it's a life or death situation.
I've been throughly horrible to live with this last week too.

I've definitely been having pre labour signs, nothing painful enough to consider a real contraction yet. I too really want to see DC1 open presents, not sure what to do if we're in hospital on Christmas instead! You're right that it'll be exciting too. The waiting and discomfort is difficult.

Jam tart, I'm in my 37th week now, but have been nerotic with looking for signs. I will probably be quite late in reality! Just a worrier. Hope you both have a lovely day today smile did everyone have their presents? I'm day in bed waiting for everyone to wake up! Ha

Oh me too me too but in a slightly different way.

I'm 22+2 and the hormones are incredible. I'm normally quite even tempered but not anymore!! DP was meant to be working away till Boxing Day but came home a week early. I had made plans to travel 300 miles to stay with my mother for Christmas Eve/Christmas Day and night so I've had to stick to them and really didn't want to.

I have never been to her new house and only met her new partner once. I got here at 3, had a shower then a nap. Was dragged out to the pub where I cried for a bit then came home. I'm an ungrateful misery and I'm hoping to behave a bit better today...

Hiya Twllbach! Are you in wales? Sut Oed eich Nadolig? Hope it wasn't so bad - over half way through at 22 weeks., I've been a rollercoaster throughout, but also I am an over thinker so I keep wanting to please people by saying I'm fine, I doubt you came across as ungrateful! My Christmas wasn't spent at home either and I had horrendous back pain... All good now, it seems better now I'm home!
