anyone else

so I know I have been bad at posting, but I would like to let you all know I am thinking of you.
I am starting to have more bad days than good.

is anyone else so ready for Baby to be here??

I hate to say it but yesterday i was so done being pregnant, I just want the baby to come already.

We had our baby class, and Friday i had my 36 week appointment, Bp was 120/80, and the MW said baby sounded good, measuring at 38 weeks. did the Strep B test, and have weekly appointments now.

I am sooo tired all the time, not sleeping more that 2 hours at a time, have to pee, or feel like it a bazillion times, I have started to have leakage just from the pressure. baby hasn't dropped yet, and at my appointment my back stated to spasm while she was doing the swab. Now my back is killing me all the time, not to mention my hips are killing me every time i get out of bed.

Okay sorry again for all the complaints.

YUP YUP, your defiantly on the last leg of things. It is pretty miserable at the end. I walk around kinda zombie like, I BEG my DH or DS to pick stuff up for me if it falls, I HATE bending over! Its no fun for sure. Although I have said it before I think the peeing at night every two hours prep's new mom's for the night feedings with new babies. Sorry your not feeling well, but your appointment sounded good at least. Hope all is well with your dog Buddy or as well as it can be going. I know extra stress on top of preparing for a baby is also hard. Try to keep your spirits up, but we are all right there with you as far as the misery goes!

Oh yes, been done for a while now and its just getting worse. I haven't been sleeping well at night at all, up too many times and then sometimes can't get back to sleep. Friday night I actually slept from 11-6 without waking up once, it was amazing, lol!
The very end is the worst cause it seems to just seems to drag on and on and then the pain gets worse. dh keeps saying 1 more week, you're almost done, but it doesn't help, it can't go fast enough. Though I know my life is going to get a lot more complicated soon and I'm not sure if I'm ready for all of that yet.

Oh Yes Hun, I'm right there with ya!!
:bighug:

The last month (but especially the last couple weeks) can be misery! I'm pretty tired and sore at times too. I grump at DH to do things for me and pick stuff up. Luckily for me (and DH!) I have a week and a half til my due date.

I think the best thing to do, especially if you have 3 or 4 weeks left, is to plan something (small) that you can look forward to. Even if its a coffee out with a friend or date night with DH/SO. It really helps keep your spirits up. Smile

DONE! I want my baby here so badly but I think I still may have a week to go-- everytime things pick up, they stop again. Sad

not quite ready to have this baby yet. i think for me i've got it in my head that i want my Mom to be here so bad that i'm not going to relax enough to let it happen till she arrives. so we'll see.

Have yu tried sleeping in a recliner? i found with my other 2 that it helped keep the pressure off of my bladder.

my DH laid in bed last night and propped his had up and i leaned into it giving myself some harsh lumbar support and it helped so much. DH was like i can feel your back spasaming or its Bean (the baby) moving. i'm like no Bean is still.

I also do the cat/cow pelvic moves to help relax my back and it seems to help.

You and i are at the tail end of this August train. but we can do it!!

Jessica ~ Thanks again, Buddy is ok it seems like we are having our bad days together tho. ugh

Gretchen ~ nope we don't have a recliner, it was on my list of to buys, but i have no clue where we could even fit one, space is tight, besides I can't sleep sitting up very well.

I had an okay day yesterday, until Dh and I went to bed, we had a nice blow out fight, I couldn't stop crying, I would like to blame the hormones, i slept like crap, and now I have the worst headache ever, now I can't find any Tylenol in the house. Just another thing to add to the shopping list.

Ugh must have been the night for tears! I had a similar night - freaking out on DH about not being ready for baby. lol I cried and cried too. I hope you get some rest and your headache eases.

Thanks hugs to all of us.

Marilyn ~ yeah, but after my freak out on Dh about intimacy he still doesn't seem to understand that rubbing my back and watching tv with me is Not the same as cuddling or spooning naked in bed. Then it all got turned around on me,like I wasn't trying to be attractive, i mean omg, I cook clean and have been taking care of a sick dog, 9 months prego how sexy can i look. he was getting upset about being a father, and not feeling ready, it goes on. With us its like if i get upset, and it upsets him enough all the "Dirty Laundry comes out"

Gretchen ~ You were probly right about the dehydration, I drowned my self in water. laid down for an hour and now feel better.
