Feeling pretty useless

Title pretty much sums it up.

Can't really run/play with my 3 y.o.-tired after 5 minutes when she could go 20-30.

Difficult to sit on floor to play with DD cuz belly is so big it's squishing my lungs.

Get winded plus a backache just putting dishes in the dishwasher (not to mention picking up toys or vaccuuming!).

DH is having to do all the yard work cuz i can't shovel/rake/lift anything for more than 5 minutes.

My belly is as big now as I was with DD at 41 weeks! Granted this time I'm all belly and less chubby, but sheesh!! I was shocked when DH showed me the picture from my last pregnant day with DD. He looks at it, looks at me and says "Holy cow!"

I'm trying to enjoy my last pregnancy, but I really think I'm ready to be done. Anyone else?

I'm ready to be done too. I hate that it takes me the better part of an hour to load the dishwasher, etc.

sweet Lord yes. I have been avoiding seeing myself in mirrors much but today caught a glimpse of my bare belly and HOLY STRETCHMARKS BATMAN! I am ALL belly and i honestly and truthfully don't know how much longer i'll make it! I had contractions today for about 10 mins and they HURT but unfortunately stopped. I know it's too early for baby...but if baby decides it's time....i won't argue much. With my heart condition and small body carrying a GIANT baby i just can't do much of anything without needing a nap from it. I seriously went to Target, lunch, and got a pedicure today....then went home and took a nap. LOL who needs a nap from shopping/eating/pedicuring!?

Fun isnt it? I havent been able to sit comfortably on the floor and play games w DS for a few mos now, and he refuses to come to me and play...i feel bad. and yes-its not more than 5-10 min of playing outside or something then im done. Hes pretty understanding though. DH has been pretty good at if he really wants to play something he will do it. And DS has been good at helping somewhat weed the garden and harvest everthing and water the other plants. Its soo hard to bend over though...I hate hate hate cleaning this house. I do the dishes since DH pretty much does all the laundry (most of the time) and cat box, and if I didnt pick up, nothing would be picked up...but it is getting to the point where i really cant do it anymore...we're almost done though...:)

I'm there. My DH did ALL the chores this weekend and I spent most of the weekend in bed. I feel exhausted/terrible all the time now. Can't get comfortable anywhere. The pool feels better but it still isn't taking the pressure off from the little ones pushing out on my belly and stretching my skin.

I know I need to make it to 36 weeks and I am doing my best to stay positive...

It doesn't help that my feet/ankles/legs are very swelled, I'm getting carpel tunnel in my right hand, and I can't walk down the hallway without getting winded. I'm still rolling though!
