Trust me, you arent the first woman who is *done* with being pregnant! And are itching for their baby to make their grand entrance. I think its like an instinct in a way, if that makes sense.
Its like a survival/animal instinct...
you know like those chemicals that are release upon delivery to cause that euphoric feeling? (My preggo brain escapes me at the moment)...well, some beleive its so we instantly become attached to our babies and dont leave them in the forest....does that make sense? I wish i had all the right termonology.
Anyways, NO, dont feel bad...its VERY normal to want to be done with your pregnancy. And it doesnt make you a bad person.
KUP on how your dr appointment goes today. Sending GBS negative vibes!!
My sharp pains I've had are mainly on my right side are due to round ligamnet pain. My BH are a tightening right across my lower abdomen (not painful, just sorta uncomfortable). When labour started last time for me, it was similar to BH but just kicked up a notch in intensity.
Perfectly normal to want him to be here! We all want the precious little baby in our arms, its totally natural! I hope my little guy stays put for a little bit longer though!
Good luck with the GBS test results..I get to have my done today! Hopefully I am negative, I don't want to have that IV in place!
Thanks ladies! I am doing better today! And I even got on and chatted with some of my horse friends this AM!
Last night I got out of the shower and thought for the 1st time in my life, MY BOOBS ARE HUGE I LOVE THEM! lol! I can't help but to want to wear low cut tops, show the ladies off alittle! DH likes them too! But darn it i thought he would touch them more! I keep telling him he must not want this baby out that bad if he isn't going to put out more! I forgot to mention i enjoy harassing my DH, he loves every min of it!
Last night i had DH blow up the air matress. I asked him if he cared if i didn't sleep in bed and he said no. Let me tell you it was wonderful! The last few nights i felt like he was smothering me. Last night was great, the air matress i think help suported my belly alittle also. We have a pillow top, which i LOVE, i think it's more DH why im not sleeping that well. I didn't want to tell him that, because I'm a snuggler also and don't want to ruin that after the baby is born. I blamed it on my tossing and turning, not wanting to keep him awake.
Baby news, nothing new today. Thanks for the advise on the pains, I was figuring it was my round ligament also.
Rachelle- did you ride english or western?
Thanks for all the neg GBS vibes! I agree I'm wanting to avoid the IV also!
Nic! i know you are feeling better today, but I still wanted to send you a
I wish my boobs were huge! lol They are bigger, but not huge yet!
Now you got me thinking about blowing up my air matress! lol I would do anything to sleep more comfortably! Right now I'm loving the couch, but I hate sleeping alone so I go to bed just to be beside DH.
I hope your GBS test comes back negative! I was supposed to have last week, but I'm getting it next week instead.
I can't believe you are almost 38 weeks!!! You know, if Mr.Cupcake decides to come out this weekend, you can still beat Darnell!! Hee hee! Tell DH to start putting out and messing with them huge boobs of yours!
His heart rate was alittle high this time- 166.. It hasn't been that high since April/May. But normaly my appt is in the morning and this appt was in the afternoon (4pm)- plus i had some ice cream for lunch (hot fudge sunday with nuts n whipped cream from Dairy queen!), so i'm hoping thats why it was higher this time. The NP said it's normal for it to flex that much but it still makes me worry, alittle. I passed on the check again, no weird look this time- wonder if they remember me, lol! Everything else was good. NP did tell me about when to go to the hospital, i wasn't really listening- lol! She said something like you don't want to deliver in your car. I chuckled and told her i honeslty didn't mind! She kinda looked at me and i explained my fear of hospitals. I had her cracking up- I'm a freak show, what can i say!!
Last night I was telling DH what the NP said about delivering in the car.. He says well it can't be that hard can it? lol! He is HELL bent on wanting to "catch" the baby, so he will probably keep me home as long as possible! Screw the home birth im have in truck birth! LMAO! Good thing I have leather seats!!!
Well Sat I will be 2 weeks from our DD! My mom was 2 weeks early with me, im the 1st! I'm crossing me fingers. I'm attacking DH tonight and in the morning, and possibly everyday untill this kid comes out!
Mimi- i miss sleeping with DH also. But I figure if I can get a few nights good sleep then I'm going for it! I will probably sleep in bed tonight! Make my visit.. DH joked last night that it's "his room and his bed". I am holding out slight hope for this weekend to beat Darnell, but when it comes down to it I will still proly be prego on Monday!
Whoo Hooo for being GBS negative
Like you, I think this is the biggest my boobs have ever been, including after DS was born and my milk came in. I've never been the girl with big boobs, so it's kinda surprising sometimes to see these big "jugs" on my chest, like "Hey! Who's boobs are these on my chest?!"
A hot fudge sunday with nuts n whipped cream from Dairy queen, that got my heart rate up just thinking about it so I'm sure that's the reason baby's hb was a little faster.
KUP on whether your activities result in any progress!!
Shella- DH keeps asking, "You think they will stay that big?" Sorry I tell him, but back to B's I go! Mom and I went to Motherhood Maturnity over the weekend and I had the girls in a D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was alittle big but not all that big!
I've never been very "well-endowed" either. I was so proud of my boobs when I BFed DS! BUT.. they shrunk even smaller than before after he was done with them!
