Bored/ Anxious

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Is it just me or is this time in pregnancy really boring?  I'm 15 weeks along. I'm glad to be feeling better and having a little more energy.  I have even been feeling flutters and that is nice.  But time is going by sooooo slowly. 

I keep telling myself to sit back and relax and not think about it.  Enjoy the process...it's very likely my last pregnancy. But it's not working!  I'm going insane!  I just want things to move along! 

I have an OB appointment on Tuesday.  It will be nice to hear the heartbeat again.  I anticipate we'll schedule an ultrasound 4 weeks later to check where the placenta is since I've had 4 prior c-sections.  I look forward to that.  (Just for the record...I wouldn't do one if I didn't have to though.)  I wonder if I'll resist finding out the gender.  I look forward to showing more so people are certain I'm pregnant and not just getting fatter!  I love the belly when it gets big!

Anyone else struggling with this uneventful period of pregnancy?

I know I shouldn't complain, since there is really nothing to complain about.  So, sorry, you guys get it...no one else would understand.

It is boring. I'm not really interested in rushing, but yeah, blah. I have my first ultrasound next week to check viability and I have my first midwife appointment next week. Looking forward to that, so if all is well, I can feel more connected to the pregnancy and look forward to the baby at the end more. I think the early part of pregnancy really just passes very slowly. I remember with my first, I was so surprised they didn't want to see you until you were at least 8 weeks. I'm like, 2 months, really?! LOL

I'm just so surprised that I think about it soooo much!  Afterall, I have 4 kids, I work, and it's Christmas time with so many things to do!

I'm only 11w+ because I'm due in early July but bored is not how I feel.  Anxious is how I feel.  We've lost SO many babies that I'm terrified every second that something is going to go wrong.  I have an appointment on Tuesday as well, along with NT scan and I'm sure I'll be able to tell if baby is a boy or girl :) but I'm terrified that we're going to show up and see another little baby lost.

 

On a lighter note, I do feel light flutters already and I LOVE LOVE it!!  Not all the time but when I need it to reassure me that baby is still hanging on.  I have to admit that I'm having a hard time picturing life with a new baby and I'm hoping and praying that it's only because of my fears and not because baby doesn't plan on hanging around much longer :(

 

I am still sick on a regular basis, if I don't eat, eat too much, smell weird things, ride in cars, spend too much time in a store etc.

I totally feel like this too. This is my third pregnancy and i've always loved being prego... but this time i'm ready for my LO to stop being the size of a lime and be the size a baby and in my arm. like now. i don't want to wait 6 more months and if i could skip it and just have the baby already i would.

 

I keep trying to remind myself this is my last pregnancy so i should cherish and remember every single moment... but it's hard when  your still feeling fat, sluggish, tired, and impatient.

 

geez, i sound like a crab.

Today I got to hear the baby's heartbeat again.  So that cut the boredom...at least for the day!  I also scheduled the 20 week ultrasound to check the placenta (because of prior c-sections.)  It will actually be at 20+6.  It will be nice to see the baby.  My husband and kids are all going too.  I'm already caving on our plan to wait to find out the gender...although DH is holding strong.  I kinda want a mid pregnancy surprise!

Not me. Just stay in there baby. I don't care if you aren't doing much. I know you're there and that's good enough. There is so much I need to figure out before you come. I'll let you know.

I don't know if bored is really the term I would use, but as soon as the shock of finding out we were pregnant wore off, it was like - "I can't believe that I have to wait 9 MONTHS for this little one to come out!!!" There have been some interesting moments, and I'm trying to enjoy things, but definitely distracted enough by my two year old that those moments are sadly few and far between.  I tend to be like this at the beginning though....once my belly is bigger, and I can feel more regular movement, it gets a lot more interesting.  At least that's how it was with DS.  I also tend to feel tons more bonded when we find out the sex.
