I know I am literally not going to be pregnant forever. But I am seriously getting to my breaking point. I am so uncomfortable and annoyed with everything. He feels like he is so darn big in my belly that every big movement he makes hurts. I am hardly sleeping and have no appetite. I know my family means well, but if I get one more phone call/text/fb message asking me how I am doing, what I am doing to "get this baby out" I am going to scream. I am doing it all, walking/sex/exercise ball/dancing/spicy foods etc. He is not going to come until he is ready, so I wish people would just back off.
Poor DH is being amazing and pretty much leaving me alone and but still doing anything I ask him to do. I would be so lost without him at this point. I go back to the doctors on Tuesday after the holiday. I am praying that if he doesn't come by then, they do something.
So sorry, Ashley!! I can't understand why families/friends harass pregnant women when they get near the end of their pregnancies as if babies don't decide on their own when to make their arrival!! I know you are miserable right now, but baby Declan is going to be here so very soon and you will floating on
Hang in there. You are not alone with the family and friends calling and texting like it will make a difference on when baby is going to arrive. Your doing good by keeping the fact in your head that baby will come when he is ready. Hugs.
The last days seem to drag on forever don't they? My first pregnancy went to almost 42 weeks and I thought I was going to lose my mind. I was so angry, because I was friends with other ladies who were also pregnant and they all had theirs about 37-38 weeks. I was pregnant a whole month longer than them and I was so jealous! It will be worth the wait though, I promise!!
I am so relieved to be done with work for the fact that people kept commenting on me still being there, and not having the baby yet! I HATE that! So I do know the feeling. Although I am not 40 weeks, so I can only imagine how frustrating.
I am so uncomfortable and the SPD is making it nearly impossible to move. My kid hasn't even dropped yet, and I am measuring 5 weeks ahead so I know he is huge and he totally feels it. Movements hurt as well.
I don't have any advice but wanted to say I can understand how you are feeling from a 38 weeker
Just uncomfortable. I think my main complaint now is that I seriously cannot sleep. Declan is super active when I lay down and when he moves it hurts So my sleep schedule is whacko. Doctor's appointment tomorrow at 9:45, I hope she can kick start something for me.
