Time Has Stopped

I swear this whole pregnancy has flown by up until this last week. Now it seems as though it's creeping by and I know it's because we are all expecting our little ones to arrive in the next few days to few weeks. I am just feeling physically and emotionally ready to meet our son and now that it's so close it's frustrating that it feels so far!

Sad and unfortunately once your little one is here, time speeds up super fast. Ugh. I hope time speeds up a little for you!

*lurk*

Tell me about time standing still. Just wait until you're overdue and the darn baby won't come out.

I lurk on the November board alot and always check to see if you finally had that baby!! I think I would be insane if I went overdue.

Being overdue was the worst. But actually... Once I was late I stopped caring and totally gave up. Having him ever come out seemed like a hopeless endeavor lol.

It defintely is dragging!

I feel the same....I think it may be a little worse when you're at the end of the month because you see everyone else & it feels it will never be your time.

Being overdue blows as well. Really hope I don't do that again.

I'm feeling the opposite Jessicah - lol. The whole pregnancy has gone by so slow for me but this week flew by. Probably because it was a vacation week - that's how it always happens. 3 more weeks and I am full term...that seems IMPOSSIBLE to imagine.

I hope the Thanksgiving holiday makes things speed up for you - in a good way.

Thankfully I've never been overdue. Time hasn't slowed down for me, I'm just ready for him to come out because of the amount of pain he's causing me!! I'm really keeping my fingers crossed that Tuesday will be the day!

I'm thinking the holidays might speed things up (I hope). Time seems to be going slow the past week or two for me too.

Yep, this last week definitely seemed to go slower and slower as the week wore on...I am quite sure this week will be more of the same. I keep saying to myself that I still have WEEKS left so that if/when it actually happens I'm not as frustrated. Not sure how well that's working out :rolleyes:

I love sleep and am not interested in hurrying up this pregnancy. The first few weeks with a newborn are so hard for me and as much as I want to see his face.....we have no name, the nursery is not ready, this week will be insanely crazy, and I love snuggling dh and my kids without engorged boobies!

Don't get me wrong, I want to get the dreaded labor over with and I am anxious about how it will go. But I have so much to do.

And I thought it was just me! I am glad it has stopped, though, I have mess to deal with at work and home! Ughhh!

So true! I can't believe mayleigh is almost 1 week old already. Hang in there jessicah. I feel so much better not prego and I know how you feel. Hugs.
