I'm 38 weeks pregnant and I'm so so done with it now. I just want little madam to make an appearance! Have an enormous bump, do go out every day for some exercise but it's hard now (low iron doesn't help). My worry is that technically this could go on for another month Another month of swollen ankles and fingers, waddling round, peeing every five minutes, finding it so hard to get into a comfortable position (particularly when sleeping) and so much more! Anyone else just waiting for their little one to make an appearance?
Yep I totally feel your pain! Am at 39+1 & I feel bad about complaining because have had a straightforward symptomless pregnancy up until a couple of weeks ago! Now everything is uncomfy and leaving the house is a sweaty/leg crampy mission so I spend a lot of time cleaning and relaxing..but oh my I am b o r e d !! So exited to meet my little girl but not sure how my sanity is going to play out if I go over due date by weeks! what are you doing to pass the time??
Had a horrendous pregnancy with every pregnancy symptom going, low iron, and now can barely move due to rib pain. Rather than be in a fetal position my baby would rather stretch their legs right out so is constantly pushing against them. I can't lift my arm, can't bend can't really do anything. Plus I have thrush and am still having sickness...so ready for her to arrive now at 39+4. Every little niggle I get excited thinking this is it! But it never comes to anything. Rant over lol
Hell, I'm only 30 weeks and fed up! Varicose veins, sciatica, acid reflux. Just feel crappie! I am looking good forward to meeting baby and never being pregnant again. Ever. (Although I am grateful to have been able to have my babies)
Yup, just 39 weeks and feel unbelievably shit. If the rest of the pregnancy hadn't been like a schooling in how completely shit I can feel, I would probably think I was dying, but most of the symptoms are familiar now: vomiting is back once or twice a day, intense nausea, acid roiling up my gullet when I lie down, rib pain like some others from babies bum/ feet driving into me, painful Braxton Hicks, stabbing pains in cervix, nose bleeds, deep throbbing backache, mild diarrhoea / lose bowels. But the worst part is mental -- feel so impatient and unbelievably fed up with myself for being so unstoical and grumpy and for letting DC1 watch loads of TV again. Have been such a crap mum during this pregnancy. Also have no faith will go into labour any time soon because was so overdue last time. Basically all I want to do is to lie groaning and weeping on the sofa, with a sick bucket next to me.
39+5 here due in Saturday. For the most part I've been ok even though I've suffered horrendous pain with spd since 26 weeks. Today however I'm feeling irrational, irritated and emotional. I've had soooo many tightenings and deep achy pains for weeks. At least 3/4 occasions where I really thought it was the start of labour and then nothing! Saw midwife today who said baby is 2/5 engaged and in a great position for labour. I'm booked to see her again next week at 40+4 for a sweep of baby hadn't arrived. I'm keeping everything crossed (apart from my legs) that baby comes before then because I can't stand my midwife! Have been losing plug over the last week so hoping I'm already dilating and this labour will not be as long as my others (39 for first and 19 for second)
