Is it bad that I hope the baby homes earlier than her due date? I mean, I DO want her to stay put till my due date for safety/developmental reasons of course, but inside I just want to wish so bad that she comes at 37 weeks! I'm SO over waiting for my due date to be here.. I'm not even that miserably and uncomfortable yet, I'm just so over the anxiety of waiting for her to be born. It's such a long time to be pregnant, especially when u find out at 3 weeks pregnant due to IVF. I feel like I've been pregnant forever!! I'm just soooo ready to have her here and not have to be anxious anymore. I have wicked anxiety in general, so waiting to go into labor and waiting to have her home etc.. Is killing me!!
Ahhh! I'm jealous of all u lady's who are 35+ weeks!
She will be here before you know it and then you may miss being pregnant But first and for most, we want our babies to be healthy so the longer they stay in our bellies the better it is for them. I would rather have this LO overcook a week and be strong as an ox then come early and have any health issues at all. And this is coming from a woman who has been dealing with consistent pre term contractions for weeks and is already in early labor.
I know what you mean. And if you haven't hit the uncomfortable part of pregnancy yet...the feeling is probably only going to get worse. Take this time to enjoy yourself and make sure you have double checked to make sure you have everything. If you get too anxious..maybe go to some birthing classes or something to keep yourself busy. lol
no i dont think bad is the right word. It doesnt sound like you actually want your baby to be born early, but more that you are at that uncomfortable, done, over it all stage. And thats such a normal feeling, baby will be here before you know it, i promise!
I don't think it's bad, I feel the same way. These last few weeks have d-r-a-g-g-e-d, but flown by at the same time. I'm over being pregnant too, I want to hold my little girl and play with her instead of lumber around with her inside me!
I'm so done it's not even funny! I just hit 36 weeks today and keep thinking..ANY TIME NOW GIRL! LOL! Even though technically I want her cooking until that magical 37 week mark, I am so done. I want my body back and want the back and side pain to stop!!
I think "done being pregnant" like the other ladies said is probably more accurate of a feeling. I wish time would magically fly until it's time for baby to actually come. I know it's not good to wish life away...but come on already! LOL
I found out at 3w5d and feel like I've been pregnant forever too! I wish I could be one of those people who doesn't find out till 9 or 10 weeks, but I'm not. I'm done too. I definitely agree with taking a birthing class to pass time. We have been in ours for the last 6 weeks and it really helps keep us busy. I wish I could have taken it closer to my due date but we'll be finishing it at 36 weeks.
