How is everyone coping with either still being pregnant or a new mom.

I am coping okay with still being pregnant. I have accepted that I will be pregnant forever and ever. ...okay so maybe I am being a little overdramatic right now.

I'm coping better some days than others, depending on how much he sleeps. The other night I was in tears with him because he would NOT go to sleep and he was just screaming and I didn't know what he wanted. But most days are better than that

Tonight is my first night on my own with all three boys ... we'll see how that goes before I make any definitive statements on my coping abilities.

I am more afraid and nervous about monday morning c section than I am miserable being still pregnant.

Except at night, when I can't sleep and want to strangle my darling amazing husband for looking so peaceful and well rested.

I burn with jealousy at how well he can move around and do stuff and sleep so soundly when if I take more than 8 steps I have a contraction.

I am not coping very well. I have been getting very depressed over the fact that he's not here yet and it seems like all those that were due around me went long before I will. I'm also afraid I will go overdue and need an induction. So all in all I am not coping well.

Some minutes better than others. When Rowan refuses a bottle or when Alex becomes challenging I just want to lock myself in the bathroom and never come out. In those rare moments when all is calm and going well I feel happy.

I'm fine with the still being pg part but had a pretty crappy day. MIL ticked me off royally 1st thing this morning and the day got worse from there. It got somewhat better after DH got home but now he's already asleep and I'm left with my thoughts and to-do list and still awake kids. I'm so nervous about the birth. I know we'll come out the other side of it ok but I'm a control freak and there are some aspects I really want to happen a certain way as silly as that may seem.

Earlier today I felt like I was going to snap though. I felt so helpless and lost. I really hope tomorrow is better.

We're doing pretty well. But I haven't been left alone with all 3 for more than a day so far. DH stayed home the first week, then MIL took the two older ones out for a couple of days and now my mom is in town for a week and a half. I'm loving the help!

I'm doing well! McKinley is a ridiculously easy baby so that helps. Kiefer has been my main challenge. He is so high energy and always on the move, there was a definite adjustment period when I was trying to figure out how to juggle feeding Mac and keeping Kiefer from burning down the house at the same time. Luckily, we are starting to get the hang of things!

We're due the same day & I feel the same way. SO ready to not be pregnant anymore. I feel like he's never going to come and I'm going to go over my due date and have to be induced, which is not what I want, but I also don't think I can handle being pregnant for 3 more weeks to wait and see if he shows up on his own. (To then still probably have to be induced.) I want him out now! I'm pretty miserable and I'm trying my best to get him out, but he seems way too content in there! Ugh. Everyday when my mom calls and asks me how I'm feeling & blah blah blah I just wanna punch her because it just reminds me that I'm still miserable and not having any signs of him making his appearance anytime soon!

So... Coping, but not coping that well. Ready to have my baby!

I feel like I'm coping well enough still being pregnant. DH may have a different opinion on that though. I know I'm more whiny, my patience is worn thin, and I'm in a lot more pain than I was with the girls. This is just a strong and active baby. His kicks had me on the floor last night when he jabbed me repeatedly in a nerve that sent shooting pain down my leg. I'll be 39 weeks tomorrow. I am ready for him to come any time now

I'm 9 days overdue and having waaaaaay more false labor crap than I did with DD, so up until this morning I was feeling pretty depressed. Today I seem to have found peace with it all. I'm really pissed about having MORE tests and ultrasounds and all the scheduling mess that comes with them; I wish I could just be left alone to finish this out in peace because I know he'll come in his own time. But I don't have control over this birth and its time to just let go and trust my body. Regardless of how he chooses to arrive, I'll be holding a baby within a week.

I think I am beginning to cope a little better with the baby...since the delivery was so rough I had a hard time feeling up to taking care of her. Not to mention that she did not sleep for the first 3 days of her life. But things are going better now that my milk has finally come in and she seems to be getting satisfied. We go to the doctor on Monday to see if she is gaining weight which I believe she is. I was really depressed at first thinking that I would not be able to breastfeed her. Things seem to be falling into place now and that makes me very very happy...!
