Although, at this point it just feels like I will be pregnant forever. 


Yes, I feel icky too. Not as many physical complaints, just some cramping. But I'm so emotionally fragile and weary. Ugh.

39 weeks tomorrow if I go by my ovulation date.

And I have to add that I'm annoyed at myself for being so annoyed with pregnancy. I mean, I'm a whiny baby and I'm not even past my due date. Why???

i can tell you why- i had some serious ctx and sharp pains (intestines?!) this evening and thought 'AGH!  THIS HURTS!' and it wasn't even labor.  you get so flippin' fed up w/ being uncomfortable that labor seems like a blessed relief...

 

even though it's far from that!!!

 

so annoyed that everything won't crank into a nice rhythm- since 5pm i've had steady ctx, but not rhythmic and not that real thing.  baked cookies, took a bath, it won't stop, but it won't get going in that sincere way.... off to bed and hoping that i'll be awakened by something dramatic!!!

Looks like the whole family has the flu.... I am having body aches and a headache..... fever isn't bad at around 100, but I took some advil at this point. I was feeling really crampy and have had 4 bm today and same the last 2 days..... don't know if body will hold on until we are well.

So sorry Chloe'sMama. I hope labor holds off for you for a little while. Might have a similar sitch here. The boys had a mild cold but felt better yesterday (I also felt like I fought it off) but today DS1 was running a fever and felt awhile. DS2 just woke up coughing and feeling yucky, too. I'm not even gonna pretend I can escape it (feel a litte off already), so I hope labor holds off of me too, until the whole family is well again.

Ugh, that stinks!! I'm so sorry!!

Yep, I'm also feeling the sick a bit with a cough, clogged ears, and a sore throat. Could definitely be a lot worse, but still sucks to be in a position to go into labour any time and feel even a little under the weather.

 

Hope you all get past it before it's baby time!

So sorry everyone who is sick. I hope you all are amazed at how quickly you get over it.

post #149 of 195

oh no, sorry to those who are sick!  hope you feel better soon! I feel like i have a cold coming on but it hasn't gotten any worse and its been several days so i'm hoping that means all my immune boosting stuff is working and it will just go away - my older kids are healthy, but my 2 yr old had that weird fever yesterday, i still have no idea what she has/had - today her fever is gone and she is acting completely normal ..   (yay for 24 hour bugs?)

 

rachieface - i was/am feeling very whiny as well and i'm only barely 39 weeks..  I think its allowed ;)  i was REALLY whiny at 37 weeks because i wasn't close enough to my due date... i think that is part of it - i tend to feel better about things as i get to/past my due date because then i KNOW its going to be over soon..

 

my main issue now is the denial - it feels so weird looking at newborn pictures and reading birth stories and just not being able to wrap my brain around that ever happening here..

I am on that planned, very walking and human interaction-heavy business trip. The support belt has helped *tremendously* with my pubic symphysis pain, though my back still gets fatigued easily. So far, no flu or cold, but with as many people I am encountering (NYC!!) I am hand washing and sanitizing like a fiend.

sorry some mamas aren't feeling well-i hope it passes quickly! 

 

i had sporadic contractions all last night but chose to ignore them for sleep. 39 weeks tomorrow. i'm ready for baby!

Hope everyone feels better soon!!

I am feeling sooo discouraged. Last time my water broke to start labor. Now I'm going on day 3 of prodromal stuff. Still having bloody show so that's good I guess. But I really thought last night was the night so now it feels like I'm going to be pregnant forever.

Tomorrow is my birthday (maybe I'll get some birthday buddies from our board!) and I just dont feel like celebrating at all. It's been a rough weekend with DH and I think that may have caused things to stall out. Im just really ready for labor and meeting this baby. Here's to a better week full of babies (mine included)!
post #153 of 195

I slept in 1.5 hour intervals last night, and woke up this morning to a blizzard outside and feeling like I swallowed glass after being hit by a truck... and I'm due in 4 days.

 

I really want to meet her but I'm not sure that today would be the best day to go into labour.

post #154 of 195
Sorry teles and all the other sickies out there. I am due in 3 days and feel like $*@&..... dd1 seems mostly recovered, but me and dd2 are just in day 1.... seems to be brutal on day 2. Dd2 has a fever over 102 and that is durring the day. Well, at least all labor signs have gone away.... nothing at all today pointing to anything starting in the next day or so.
post #155 of 195

Oh, I hope you're better soon!! I got the flu for a week at the end of my last pregnancy and it was horrific. I was only better for 4ish days before going into labor, still was really weak. Hopefully it is quick for you!

post #156 of 195

Chloe'sMama and Teles get better soon! I'm still fighting off whatever bug we have in the house but I'm not hopeful. Gonna try to sleep as much as I can tonight and have of course upped vits D, C and probiotics.

post #157 of 195

get better sick mamas!  being sick and pregnant is horrible.  but being sick and DUE is beyond!!!

 

rest well and get better soon!

I just slowly enjoyed a Mike's Hard Lemonade at our superbowl party. I figured that if this baby's gonna stay in forever, I might as well have a little fun. wink1.gif

Literally at the last stop on our trip, our car window was broken, and backpacks, luggage and laptops stolen. We only have liability insurance. greensad.gif

Manhattan cops very nice. Taping up window to drive home ~4 hours now.

so sorry to all the mamas feeling sick, I hope everyone feels better quickly!!flowersforyou.gif

 

 

Rachieface- I feel you about the whiny thing. I'm in  a better place today, but last week, ugh I was so whiny and upset and overwhelmed and just everything. I think I may have been overdoing things. Now that I'm on modified bedrest I am feeling much less whiny, a little more zen. I think it's pretty normal to get to that place.smile.gif
