Feels like I've been pregnant for 25 years

Fucking hell! Everyone's telling me the last 8 weeks is going to go so slow. Is this true?

Feels like I've been pregnant forever and this is my first! Haven't been feeling the greatest throughout the whole thing (which I think is making it worse) but I just want baby to hurry up and get here now. Really not enjoying being pregnant at the moment.

I hear ya! 32 weeks here, 8 more weeks feels like lifetime

Whereisthecake Wed 17-May-17 14:05:28

At the beginning I was so excited which I think made it seem like time was going quickly. It was Christmas, and just after was my birthday, so I had a few things to be hyped up about.

Now I just feel so worn out and everyday feels so longgggg! 😩

It's all worth it in the end!

I'm coming up 36 weeks and got pregnant a short few weeks after a 13 week loss, so some days I feel I should be 49 weeks pregnant!

If you are about 32 weeks, then that's only 5 weeks until full term! Your baby could arrive in 35ish days time!! That's not long. smile

Whereisthecake Wed 17-May-17 14:29:53

@NotAnotherUserName5 sorry for your loss. Good luck with everything.

I know it will all be worth it in the end 😊have a countdown on my phone so it's no time compared to the start which is great haha.

Hopefully it happens sooner rather than later.

I'm 34 w and find it's going faster than I expected it to now.

glitterglitters Wed 17-May-17 14:32:46

I'm 34 weeks on Monday and this last bit dragsssss and is very uncomfortable.

Every twinge will be a shockblushconfused

You can't phone anybody because they say "have you had the baby?"

So feel your pain!!

lalaland1985 Wed 17-May-17 14:33:46

40 + 3 here! 😩

WellieWanger Wed 17-May-17 14:36:14

Also 34week. Booked in to have babe at 39 but I feel so shite and have had complications this time that I want it over with and baby out safely. It will be worth it, this is my second and you do forget. But it's bloody hard when you're in it!!

Whereisthecake Wed 17-May-17 14:39:11

@lalaland1985 WOW! Hope baby gets here soon for you. Really hope I don't go over.

Had to go into hospital last week because I couldn't feel him moving. (He was fine) Ended up having to sit in the waiting area for 7 hours and the amount of people I saw in labour/their waters were breaking next to me was kind of scary. I know their isn't a long time left when you think of it in weeks, but I'm really not ready for labour or anything if he decided to come too early! 🙈

tatatetelle Wed 17-May-17 14:40:32

Lalalan - you're a proper veteran! aha

I'm 32 weeks, cannot wait to go on mat leave. After that I'll be fine doing nothing, but the next 4 weeks feel like 4 months...... I'm so heavy my bum hurts from sitting on it all day...

BendydickCuminsnatch Wed 17-May-17 14:41:54

When you have your second it will fly by (assuming youre not in constant pain or something!) smile Good luck for the birth!

Spam88 Wed 17-May-17 15:09:10

I'm 39+5 and oh my god it's like it's never going to end 😩 it's gotten easier since I've finished work but im still more than ready for the baby to come out now.

And I swear the next person to ask me if I've had any twinges yet is going to get punched in the face. In the nicest possible way. YOU WILL ALL KNOW WHEN I'M IN LABOUR BECAUSE I'LL BE SHOUTING IT FROM THE ROOF TOPS.

SummerMummy88 Wed 17-May-17 15:16:20

Enjoy it! Every other pregnancy after your first goes super quick, you dnt have time to sit and chill your running around after your other kids!

motherinferior Wed 17-May-17 15:36:02

Er...mine didn't. Both my pregnancies went on for approximately a decade, and I never even got to the full 40 weeks.

When a midwife told me enjoy the last few weeks of my second pregnancy I felt quite violent.

I hate to say this but the first six weeks of my first baby's life were also interminable

glitterglitters Wed 17-May-17 15:42:47

Lol this is my second and although the pregnancy has gone quick the first two trimesters this one is dragging and exhausting with a toddler.

baconsandwiches Wed 17-May-17 15:52:33

I'm only just 30 weeks and time has sped by so far and now seems to be slowing down as I get more uncomfortable by the day! My belly feels so bruised (I'm guessing the muscles are finally tearing apart confused) and baby's kicks are bordering on painful!
I'm not even that big yet (I thought anyway...) and I'm already getting the 'how much longer?' 'I thought you'd already be on mat leave' questions, another 7 weeks of this at work fills me with dread.
Just trying to focus on how worth it it will be in the end and with it being the first, I can at least relax and (sort of) get some sleep without worrying about running round after other children!
Hope the final few weeks go quickly for you and little one makes a smooth appearance smile

lampshadehat Wed 17-May-17 18:21:37

I'm 5 days overdue! Just want him here now. I was induced at 12 days over with my first. My womb is too comfy!

samatamfabahaba Wed 17-May-17 18:27:16

38+1 here and I feel like it was only yesterday I was having a wee on a little stick while planning on what to wear out that night... those months have absolutely flown by, and isn't slowing down at all for me!

pregnantandhormonal87 Wed 17-May-17 18:37:49

Know the feeling smile I'm 32 weeks and ready for it to be over already.i'm due 10 days after my birthday so keep getting the 'oh hopefully you go early' and 'seems like yesterday you only just announced it' not to me it doesn't 😒 I'm mainly just focusing on finishing off work and spending the next 8 weeks having quality time with my two dd's before the little man turns up

LauraK1987 Wed 17-May-17 20:09:34

I'm 33weeks and feel like I'm becoming more and more miserable by the day !!! Everything is stretched beyond its limits, everything hurts/aches, I gave up on sleep months ago, my hips ache - yet by the time I've switched sides I'm wide awake lol, I have heartburn which keeps me awake and I'm fed up of people at work commenting "are you STILL pregnant....have you not finished yet....it feels like you've been pregnant forever!!!" The list is endless!!!!

See....really miserable 🙈😂

deb1407 Thu 18-May-17 13:33:37

I'm 34 weeks on Sunday & feel like the last 3 weeks have been a drag ; can't cope with another 6ish weeks! Hoping & praying to go into labour at 38 weeks like i did with my first! Although no doubt little princess will keep us waiting blushgrin

tabithaa Thu 18-May-17 16:15:44

Waited until 42 weeks with 2nd, had I not got induced I reckon she'd still of been there for god knows how long ha!!

Hopefully starts going in quicker for use, worth it in the end grinwine

lalaland1985 Thu 18-May-17 17:19:06

lalaland1985 Thu 18-May-17 17:19:36
