Hey ladies! I am suddenly disgusted by anything healthy--for example, I usually drink a green smoothie every morning and I just can't even imagine drinking one. I have been craving pizza, quesadillas, cake--all things not good for me! And I am not one to have "cravings". I can't stop thinking of a piece of cake :) And then the emotions, I think I have cried 3 times today. Wow. Feeling super anti-social. Getting lots of text messages, emails, facebook message and I just have no desire to talk to people even my own family. Anyone else experience this at the end? Hope you all are either snuggling with your babes or hanging in there as you wait!
39 weeks and feeling like I am in the first trimester again!
PS. I have never been this pregnant. I was induced which lead to a c-section with my DD at 37 weeks. This baby feels like she is going to bust out of my stomach. I am such a petite lady and my HUGE belly is making me feel like I am going to have a HUGE baby. My DD was a peanut at 5 lbs 12 ounces.
I got so tired of people when I went 41-1 with DD. I never mentioned my twin PG on FB so that helped and didn't announce their birth for several days just to avoid visitors. I also never told a due date this time. I have no idea if I'll have another baby but if I do I'll continue with the vague "early Sept" or whatever response when someone asks when I'm due.
I would say turn your phone off, don't check FB, do whatever you have to do to stay sane. I remember after DD"s due date I posted that I was tired of people asking if she had come and that got one of my friends to apologize- the one who would call and I wouldn't answer so she'd leave a msg saying since I didn't answer I was probably at the hospital having my baby! (OK 4 yrs ago I'm still touchy about it so yeah it was bad).
Hang in there! Sounds very normal for the end game to me... I go back and forth on healthy food, though I tend to just crave crap... Emotionalism is the name of the game at this state (though it hasn't hit me yet - mostly just feeling bummed about no baby yet and extra on edge with my kiddos). This is the most pregnant I've been since my oldest (I am 39+5 today and mine have come at 40+3, 38+1, and 39+1). Anyway, hang in there!
My mom and step-father are in town to help with DS. My step-father keeps talking to my belly. Things like, "Any time you're ready...", or "What do we have to do to get you outta there?" It's really getting on my nerves. I am 39w6d today. I told him yesterday that no one likes being bullied and unless he's doing things to make me more comfortable baby boy is likely to stay holed up in there forever! After that, my step-father just wanted me to lay down all day and not move... There's no gray area for him.
