Has anyone got any tips to keep me occupied? All I can think about all day everyday is how many more weeks to go and I'm going crazy!
Due 21.03.16 and it feels like forever away!!biscuit

Ooh me too - I am due on 24.03.16 - I am the same just keep counting down the days until we get to meet our little one. I am trying to keep occupied by batch cooking, getting birthday cards and presents sorted out (April has a lot of family birthdays so trying to be prepared) and reading all the books I got for xmas before I don't have the time to! Hopefully time will move fast for us both smile

2 weeks and counting! And it can not come fast enough.

Chloe16 Mon 04-Jan-16 16:05:19

I can't wait until I get to 2 weeks! Got Braxton Hicks already and back ache! I've just started packing my hospital bag but it still feels like forever until he's here!

i'm due 29th march and it's too soon - so not ready!! have major house renovations to finish, have hardly bought anything, definitely no bag packed, and will be v busy at work until the end I imagine!

perhaps writing a very comprehensive list of all the 'things to do before baby arrives' and then doing them can help fill the time - fun things, things that are difficult with a baby and all those little round the house jobs?!

or you could keep occupied by coming to my house and helping to tidy it up and sort it out?! ;)

2 weeks until I'm considered term and I'm still ticking off the days lol

Newlywed123 Mon 04-Jan-16 17:45:39

I've got 5 weeks to go due 08th February, this time in 2 weeks my stitch will be removed so baby can come anytime from then!

I blitzed my house today, now going to relax and enjoy the next couple of weeks with my daughter 😊

Due date 19.03.16 and can't wait for pregnancy to be over. It's been shit. I hope I give birth between 39-40 weeks.

sepa Mon 04-Jan-16 18:15:04

I am 11.03.16 - I have told little one to come at 39 weeks which will give me a week for batch cooking and cleaning house. Like with you scaredmum I haven't enjoyed pregnancy at all

hellsdells82 Mon 04-Jan-16 20:08:55

Me too, im due 26th march but being induced at 37 wks (approx 6/7 march) and it cant come soon enough. I am a high riak preg so have around 9wks to go,but have nothing at all prepared. And wont. Till ive been given a definate induction date. Till then its a case of sit and be bored stiff.

I'm due 21st March too! I've got serious pressure really low; it seriously felt like baby was going to fall out earlier today :-( I can't get comfy with back ache & sore hips. Just fed up now. I'm counting down the days until I can stop work as I'm so tired all the time! I've not enjoyed pregnancy at all either.

hawaiibaby Mon 04-Jan-16 21:34:38

Ah I'm 20th March - popular week!

I am so very excited of course, but also slightly panicky as we have so much to do still, including clearing the spare room of hell and junk out to make a nursery, aaggh! So since Christmas, it seems to be speeding by a bit too fast, especially as I might be induced a week early. Oh and we still haven't got names for baby either. I think we'd done nearly everything by this point last time!

We have a 2 yo DS though so this I think explains why I'm not counting down the days just yet, more hoping time slows down a bit!

However, I'm with you on the aches and pains already - WTF is that about? I feel 40 weeks pregnant already hmm

BumpPower Mon 04-Jan-16 22:17:19

I'm 14th March but was signed off sick today with really bad hips - so I have 10weeks on crutches making lists of things to do whilst DS1 is at nursery. Definitely feels like the calm before the storm. Somehow it was all ages away before Christmas and now there is a definite countdown feel!

MercuryRising Tue 05-Jan-16 02:59:58

Im due on the 18th March but will be having a elcs so baby will be here before then. Im nowhere near ready. We need to move before then and I still have 6 weeks to work so the next 10 weeks will be manic and probably go far too quickly.

Cnmorgan13 Tue 05-Jan-16 07:11:03

I'm due 3 March. Was meant to be working up till the week before. Think I've been a bit... Over confident

Chattymummyhere Tue 05-Jan-16 09:40:09

I'm due 27.3.15, pretty much brought everything. So I am keeping busy by redecorating pretty much every room in the house.

Chattymummyhere Tue 05-Jan-16 09:40:31

Ops not 15 obviously so not used to it being 2016 yet

FrancoisLaPrune Tue 05-Jan-16 09:47:47

I'm due on 18th March - I'm with you scaredmum and sepa I can't wait for this pregnancy to be over and to hold my baby in my arms. I lost my first DC at 23wks due to loss of amniotic fluid so this pregnancy has been fraught with anxiety!

FrancoisLaPrune Tue 05-Jan-16 09:49:00

Oh and I'm also totally unprepared. I can't bring myself to buy things in case it all goes wrong. It'll be last minute panic buying I reckon.

BumpPower Tue 05-Jan-16 11:39:00

Francois I was like that with DC1 and I don't think it's a bad thing. Lots of my friends had bought "essentials" that they never used and you wouldn't believe the number of friends, neighbours and colleagues who popped by and gave us lovely things for the baby! I think it meant more to them knowing we didn't already have 5 different types of blankets/bibs or whatever so we were grateful and their gifts were useful.

TriJo Tue 05-Jan-16 11:49:04

20th March here and despite the fact that I have had a relatively easy time of it I'm still kinda counting down the days. Excited and a bit nervous at the same time. We have the big things bought and now stocking up on baby clothes and the smaller things.

Brunette28 Tue 05-Jan-16 12:21:42

I have 9 weeks left tomorow due 9.3.15 and it can't come any sooner.!! I'm hoping she comes a little early so sick of being pregnant now. Just want my baby in my arms and a decent helping of wine in my hand winkwine

Peanutbutternutter419 Tue 05-Jan-16 15:17:45

I have 12 weeks to go now...DD 30/03/16!
I don't do well in pregnancy until the 3rd trimester usually so hoping I get to enjoy these last couple of months as the nausea is still constant and now joined by heartburn!!
Anyone have a right wriggler?? My LO does not ever seem to stop moving around!
I too have nothing sorted for this one, although they will have hand me downs so don't actually have anything to buy other than nappies.
Still can't imagine getting up in the loft to start sifting through all the baby things though!!

TriJo Tue 05-Jan-16 15:25:37

Peanut You pretty much exactly described my little guy - incredibly active pretty much all my waking hours, stretching his little feet into the top of my bump right now!

LastOneDancing Tue 05-Jan-16 15:26:17

EDD is 17 Mach and I think I've only just realised that a new baby will be arriving soon! I can't believe how different it is second time round with a little person keeping me busy, the time has flown. I have 16 working days left - I can't wait to leave and have some fun with DS.

Hawaii I honestly thought I was going to give birth last week it felt do low and heavy - the MW said it's because everything's 'looser' and to do my pelvic floor exercises religiously. Which I have been of course... hmm
