39 weeks and feeling like I am in the first trimester again!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

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!

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.

hug.gif Oregon! With my DS, I went to 42 weeks (and he was 10 lbs) and I just told people straight up through Facebook that they REALLY had good reason to be afraid of me and maybe they should just keep their thoughts to themselves. It didn't totally stop the intrusive communication, but it slowed it down a lot and the rest I just ignored. Every day of the last few weeks of pregnancy feels like a lifetime, but you really are SO close. Hang in there!

Oh man, I cannot imagine going until 42 weeks.  But it is soooo possible.  You are one strong lady! And to have a 10 pound baby on top of it!

I posted twice a day on fb so people would know nothing was up. I also felt lik that the end. With food I said screw it, if I want it, I will eat it, but I have no GD so no real reson not to.

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!

At the end of this pregnancy we had my mother on call to come and watch the kids while I was at the hospital. Every time I called her for the last two weeks she would answer the phone with, "Is it time?" I can't begin to express how annoying that was.

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.

How annoying can people be. Seriously. Don't they know better than to irritate a fully pregnant woman any more than she already is without any outside help?

Mama505, how's your scary face? Add growling and I look forward to hearing about how everyone quickly and agiley side-stepped scary pregnant lady. That was kind of my favorite character I ever put on. Very empowering. wink1.gif But seriously stepdad: how about step OFF? smile.gifhug.gif Mama505.
