I feel bad for complaining, because I know this baby is not ready to be born and I really don't want a preemie. But with that being said - I am so over being pregnant. I feel so much more uncomfortable with this baby than I did with Jed. I am just about 35 weeks and baby is so high I can't breathe. I can't sit up in a normal chair without having pain at the top of my belly. It is hard to maneuver all the stairs at work during passing periods since I change rooms every class period.
And the baby's room is not ready because I am waiting to get the dresser from my sister. So all the clothes I have are in boxes and i haven't gotten out any bottles or anything. Yikes.
It sucks when you are that uncomfortable but pretty soon that baby will be here and then you'll be busy, and tired, and thinking how quickly that pregnancy went by. Just keep telling yourself that every day left inside is one day closer to better health. Hugs hun!

I know how you feel....I was there not too long ago! But it will be over before you know it!
I was the biggest procrastinator ever this time. I finished packing my hospital bag when my water broke...lol and only had like 5 outfits for him, and nothing ready. I just completed moving to our new house the day before my water broke!
I agree, you still has time Hang in there and come vent to us anytime!! Hugs

Thank you Meganpixel for the most fantastic siggy!
Sorry you're feeling so uncomfortable. I remember at what turned out to be my second-to-last OB appt a woman at the info desk in the lobby asked if I was ok and I really wanted to reply "No, I feel like my son's head is already hanging out".
Just another month momma. Hang in there! Just keep trying to remember how awesome it will be when your new LO arrives and how quickly you'll forget all this. (Am I the only one who has selective memory now???)
I didn't pack my bag until I was in labor. And at your stage I didn't really have anything for the baby except 2 or 3 outfits and the crib. My religion is superstitious about this so you don't get anything ready until the baby arrives, although we gave in and had my shower the week before Jamie was born (well, it would have been 3 weeks before he was born but I had him 2 weeks early). Remember all they really need right away is a car seat, a few outfits, somewhere to sleep and lots of love.
It will be here soon! You'll have your little girl in your arms before you know it and then in that weird mystery of life, you'll start to miss being pregnant (i still dont understand how that happens).
Don't worry about not having stuff ready. I think all that preperation is really a modern invention anyhow. All you really have to have ready is the carseat for baby to ride home in, something to put over her butt, a place to lay her when you aren't holding her and something to feed her with- either your breast or a bottle. Even if you just have a few blankets and onsies, you'd be okay clothes wise for a bit. THings will work out, don't worry!
I totally empathize with you on the discomfort aspect. That last bit of pregnancy is just plain hard. I HATE stairs in the last couple months. With the last two pregnancies I had I actually had to count the steps to get myself through it when I was at the very end, espicially if I was toting a toddler up to bed or something.
It will pass. It will be here very soon!!!!!
