these last few weeks..

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

So, as planned, my to-do list is pretty much done, except for a little cooking and finishing the kitchen (found a new painter to finish painting cabinets, just waiting on his availability - and i need to make a bench cushion for my new window seat i don't feel like sewing something that big with the kids all running around, plus my sewing stuff is downstairs and with the pelvic issues, i don't want to walk down stairs/up stairs more than once a day )  i thought about making some baby wipes, again, sewing with kids.. eh. not real motivated to do it .. I think i'll make the last couple things on my cooking list here in the next couple days (stuff we don't really need, but would be nice to have some extra in the freezer).. I'm also having a lot of pelvic pain so its kind of hard to do too much so it is good i don't have much to do..  

 

but .. I'm 'only' 37 weeks and getting bored and restless!! I'm going to drive myself crazy just sitting around - even though i'm still running here and there every day, i have an appointment or activity every day this week except friday, and next week too .. Today i had a chiro appt and then walked the mall (slowly hobbled around the mall trying not to undo the good done at the chiro) came home at 2pm, its almost 4pm and i'm doing homeschool stuff with DD, other kids are playing dress up.. and i'm still feeling restless -  my house (except for the toys the kids will put away before dinner) is spotless,  laundry and dishes are caught up..  everything that can be reorganized has been reorganized (twice). 

 

so. anyone else? bored? restless? insane?  i'd think this was a sign of labor, but i've felt this way pretty much my entire pregnancy - just before this i was busy enough not to notice..  :P

I'm there too! Thankfully I'm 38 weeks today and I am feeling a little more hopeful that I can make it 2 more weeks. :) We have something planned everyday this week (other than Thursday) and I made myself a "to-do" list for anytime this week I'm feeling bored/restless. My house is spotless too, and everything is caught up. We are having playdates with 3 different people (here) this week.

 

I am just trying to stay as busy as possible at this point! Which is so hard to do in the winter.

I wish I could say I'm right there with you...but I'm 37 weeks as well and still have a fair bit to do!  We moved in at the beginning of Jan and I only started my mat leave today so we're still organizing and getting baby things all set up.  We have everything we need, it's just that everything isn't necessarily where it needs to be....

I've got everything I need for the baby and the birth.. My family keeps their house very clean so I'm not feeling any strong nesting urges.. I really am just waiting at this point! :)

I know I'm a bit behind y'all, being due March 1, but I am still jealous of those of you who have accomplished so much already.  Well, I feel like I have done a lot, but there's just so much left to do if I don't want to be extra stressed after baby is born-- and who wants that? 

 

I have to finish a major work project, working loooong, taxing hours this week.  If it's not done by Friday, I might be able to extend it to mid-week next week.  Then I have a 24/7 business trip from the next Saturday through Friday (Feb 2-8).  Then (Feb 9-10) possibly a short trip to visit family overnight (about 2 hours away)... Then I have lots of work to do, though some flexibility with it... and about 70+ hours worth of baby stuff to do between now and whenever baby arrives (okay, that includes MWs appointments and everything, but there's lots more, too). 

 

No wonder I am kinda hoping-- as long as I'm not HORRIFICALLY uncomfortable or having any real problems-- that baby will be "late."  Or at least not "early."  Or, at worst, not come before 39 weeks at the absolute earliest.  AhahahahahaIMGOINGCRAZY!!!!

I totally felt that crazy not ready feeling just a few weeks ago - hope you can get everything done soon so you can relax a bit! or at least stress less on your trips - but not so soon that you end up bored at the end ;) sounds like you'll have something to do even if you're done though ..  i really thought i would have enough to keep busy with homeschooling and everything ... maybe i need to have the kids do school 7 days a week until i have the baby .. .they probably wouldn't like that lol  I've been feeling a little less restless since i'm not in so much pain and feeling a bit more normal..  a few days of activities helped too - i have one more day of that then 3 days of nothing to do, hoping it doesn't start up again..
