What's wrong with me today? :(

I'm 39 weeks and 5 days. I literally want to sit and cry. My partner working out for the last hour has sent me into a hissy fit because I've had to try and keep kids under control and I just feel like crying like a big baby. Everything is irritating the hell out of me, I feel like I'm losing it. Help me

Is your bag packed and ready? Because I think you're going to need it sooner than you think. A lot of ladies get "the rage" almost like PMT just before they go into labour

Rest up, drink and eat as and when you can and just double check you have everything you need

NotSpeaking Sun 31-Jan-16 10:38:46

Yes bag is packed and ready to go. I bloody hope you're right. I feel positively mental. I'm so angry.

Oh I would make sure you have everything ready, I was induced with my first, and when I was 40+4 with my second I phoned my husband at his work crying frantically because I was utterly convinced my body just didn't know what to do and I would be induced again. I then went in to an angry crying fit when he told me to try to calm down. It was completely out of character for me.

I went in to labour in the early hours of the morningsmile I hope that's what's happening for you.

Good luck OP!

Oh god I had the rage and labour started slowly the next day. Can your dh take over with the kids so you can have a bath or go for a coffee by yourself?

Imnotaslimjim Sun 31-Jan-16 10:48:14

Its fairly common so I'd be surprised if you didn't begin labour in the next couple of days

starbores suggestion is good though, can you get any time to yourself, maybe a walk or a quiet coffee shop, to let your brain assimilate whats about to come?

I second having your bag packed and ready to go! I remember wanting to kill DP for making a smudge on the window after I'd cleaned them the day before dd was born. I think it's a hormone surge.

Have you been manically cleaning/nesting? I got serious rage the day before I went into labour, good luck looks like baby is on its way smile

NotSpeaking Sun 31-Jan-16 10:53:14

I did on Thursday. Cleaned my whole house from top to bottom. I nearly puked this morning as well I just want to be on my own with no one around.

Imnotaslimjim Sun 31-Jan-16 11:01:48

Have you any pain or pressure? In your tummy, back or legs? It does sound like you're on your way

NotSpeaking Sun 31-Jan-16 11:13:58

Braxton hicks all day yesterday and night. They've calmed down now. Keep getting watery whitefish discharge but no mucus plug as yet

NotSpeaking Sun 31-Jan-16 11:14:14

Meant whiteish not whitefish lol

Wardrobespierre Sun 31-Jan-16 11:18:32

I suffered with terrible fits of hormonal rage in the last weeks. For me it didn't mean labour was imminent. Labour started after a few days of zen like calm. I think in retrospect, I was nervous, tired and suddenly overwhelmed.

I think it's likely you're just very pregnant. Either way, labour is very near. Just try and do whatever you can to feel comfortable and relaxed.

Was feeling optimistic until wardrobespierre stepped in sad back to deflated
Thanks everyone else for your positive comments

Big hugs OP, had to smile at all the posters who.are essentially saying "soon" or "in the next couple of days". I felt like that was all I heard towards the end. Infuriated me. I did have huge rage before labour though if that helps, my parents had travelled down to see me - because a watched pot just adds to the stress! - But they had to travel up north for a close friends funeral and I knew they needed to go and support the family. So I manged to put a calm face on all my pain until they left then poor DP got it with both barrels (to be clear I had the baby 12hrs after they left so want like I was in full blown labour but still!).

bluewisteria Sun 31-Jan-16 12:28:26

I found a walk on my own helped during 'the rage'! Got endorphins going, might help bring on labour too. I know you probably don't feel like it but I found it really helped, but only if on my own, otherwise I wanted to kill whoever I was with! Big hugs.

s098 Sun 31-Jan-16 12:36:09

I was pretty grumpy the day i went into labour! Had to go upstairs and just sit in bed away from oh.
Hope things get going for you soon

Wardrobespierre Sun 31-Jan-16 19:42:35

I didn't mean to make you feel deflated! Doesn't matter what I say or what anybody else says. I always found it rather comforting to know that all the old wives tales and people's nosey "have you had it yet?" crap was irrelevant. The baby would come when it was ready. And at full term, that's soon no matter which words strangers write on a screen.
