Hi all, I'm currently 35 weeks with DC1. It took us a good 4 years ttc before we got our bfp and I honestly thought it would never happen!
Now I am so very massive and, yes, uncomfy and peeing all night and can't roll over in bed and so on and so on but (controversial!) I DON'T CARE! Because in a few short weeks I'm going to be someone's mum and I can't wait to hold my baby and smell it's little smell and see it's little face!
I don't know why I'm posting this really but I'm just hoping other people out there feel the same!
Thanks for all the replies... All of my friends (the ones who have kids already) were telling me 'oh you'll hate the last few weeks' and were all doom and gloom.
Admittedly I've had to slow down (finished working 2 weeks ago as I'm self employed and realised I was soooooo slow I was totally unproductive!) but I figure even if we get lucky enough to have another one I'm never going to feel like this again so I'm appreciating the waddling and slow pottering as much as I can.
Scout my NCT teacher told me that the smell of your baby (as opposed to babies in general) releases the happy chemical oxytocin which triggers mothering instincts and encourages you to produce more milk. So sniff away!
It just seems very soon now and I'm feeling ready (ish) and very excited!
I’m 39 weeks 1d and had an early miscarriage in May 2015 and then nothing for nearly two years, ttc nearly became everything I could think about and we had all the test available on the NHS which didn’t find any issues. Today I’m having a chilled day at home but otherwise I go into town for a bit of retail therapy and coffee & cake/lunch most days (3rd week off work) - went to see A Bad Moms Christmas yesterday, up until this week I’ve been cycling to most places as sometimes this is more comfortable due to PGP. Still can’t believe I’m nearly there😊
