Anyone else getting reclusive?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I have been feeling like I don't want to talk or see anybody until this baby is born. I have no patience for them and they have no understanding about how I am feeling so why waste my time? I would love to just hole up in my room and not come out!

I feel like all I want to do most of the time is be alone. I want to hide in my room reading, crafting, knitting, meditating and taking long luxurious baths until the baby arrives. It's more like an instinctual feeling, like an urge to go and spend time in my nest and prepare for what is to come.

oh yeah. and since ds isn't feeling well lately and the weather has turned mighty cold, i have all the excuses i need! plus there are phone calls i need to make but have been avoiding...

yes me too - especially to get away from people asking me when I think I'm going to have the baby. Oh my I'm so sick of that question. As if I know!!!! THen I had one stupid relative say to me today that I wasn't "big enough" to give birth yet because some other friend of hers was twice the size of me at 38 weeks. Sorry I'll get off my box now.... yes I know what you mean lock me up until the bub is born.

I'm definitely running out of patience. This morning when I got up to go to the bathroom, I discovered that someone had knocked the container of Q-tips to the floor and not bothered to pick ANY of it up, and also the toilet paper was no longer on the holder, but was on the floor.

I was so frustrated I actually typed up a note in 48 pt. font asking my family to please, please pick up after themselves. Why do I feel like such a Surely this is a reasonable request, no? Or do I have "MAID" tatooed on my forehead that no one has told me about?

The last thing I want to do is go to the store for wipes, lightbubls, and dish detergent - I, too, just want to hole up in bed and HAVE THIS BABY!!!

Zek_grrl, that comment may have actually been a misguided compliment. Your relative probably (hopefully) meant that you were looking good for how far along you are, and not huge. I have had a couple of co-workers comment that I don't seem like I'm due in 2 weeks, that I don't seem as big, etc. and I totally take it as a compliment because I *AM* huge and I know it! I have ONE pair of pants that fit, and no energy to go buy more. My legs are short and I don't sew, so it means going to one store to buy pants, and another store to buy the no-sew sticky tape things so that the pants won't drag on the floor when I walk. So can I please just wear sweatpants to work? Please? Can I go back to bed, actually? *cranky*

I'm feeling a bit reclusive too. Fortunately I can use my false but frequent contractions as a reason to stay in. I'm okay with people asking when I'm due, but I am getting tired of people trying to make me promise to bring the baby in so they can see him/her. I'm down to smiling and nodding, because I'm tired of explaining to people that I don't take my babies out for the first 4-6 weeks after birth.

Oh my, yes, I am turning into quite the hermit. If it weren't for the phone and internet I would never talk to anybody! It's cold out too and getting to be a PITA to get DS ready to go anywhere. If I do get out to see anyone I usually do enjoy it while I'm there, but it's a huge effort to do so!

Really all I want to do is go to my bed and sleep. That's all! But I can't. *sigh*

Yeah- it's cold, I'm tired and easily grouchy. I am very tired of people asking if I am having twins. Hello- this is my 4 pregnancy in what 5 or 6 years? I have nothing holding me in and I am even measuring a little small.

I am really just reclusive because I am tired of everyone being so nosy, well, I guess a large part of it is also because I am just plain old tired. And cranky.

Yea I definitely feel thay way but nature seems to be in agreement, since I'm on bedrest (kinda lol) and there's a ton of snow.
post #10 of 22
Me too!! I'm much more grouchy and hermity this time than I was with my last pg. I think part of it is the cold & snow, and part of it is that I spent so much of this pg busy and running around that the closer I get the more I just want to sit in my rocking chair and knit or sleep. I just don't feel like going anywhere.

I have to say though, I am soooooo verrrrry sick of answering the "do you know if it's a boy or girl" question that I really am in danger of kicking the next person that asks me that!!!!! It isn't just people I know it's strangers in the grocery store, and the people I know don't just ask me once, they ask me every time they see me it seems!
I don't know, I'm not hoping for a boy, DH isn't wishing for a son, and I'm not a complete freak because we're doing it the "old-fashioned" way and waiting to find out... aaaarrrrgh!

See, very grouchy. Just leave me alone
post #11 of 22
Me too. I am in hiding, I don't answer the phone much, and I only talk to dh and dd most of the time. We get out of the house together still, to take dd to the park or go for a walk, but as far as other people go....not so much.
post #12 of 22
Oh good this is normal I haven't wanted to interact with DD much or DH.. I have a video on right now.. Poor DD the TV has been such a great use while I've been pregnant

Lock me up 'til the baby comes.

I don't wanna deal with anyone or anything!!
post #14 of 22
I just want to be with my family (if they are nice to me) and hole up in the house. I have a friend who calls me freakin' daily about the following: do we have a name yet, am i having contrx, and aren't you ready??

I swear if I have to answer the SAME darn ??? everyday I am going to her in the head!!

Wow! I feel much better

Yep, that's me. My kids are lucky I come out of my room to feed them I've been really short on patiance with dh and my parents too which makes me feel kind of bad. They are just trying to be nice but I totally bite their heads off. My dh gave me the Indian name "Likes to Fight". Very nice. I avoid eye contact should I see any neighbors and don't make any conversation with grocery store checkout people. I've never desired a TV or computer in my room before but now I do. I've ordered some books from barnes and noble b/c I'm running out of things to read. This baby can't come soon enough.

I have a friend doing the exact same thing. I haven't answered a few of her calls so she emails me daily with "I am worried about you! How are you feeling?". I will email her back and tell her all is well just for her to do it the next day!

Yeah I knwo what you mean.. but this relative unfortunately didn't mean that. I am one of those ppl who is very tall and my belly isn't protruding that much (although I think its HUGE). Most NORMAL people (not this relative) say things like you look great, wow I can't beleive it 38 weeks!! etc... this relative has no class..... LOL we've been laughing about the comment on and off all day...

I'm so grouchy I'm feeling homicidal most of the time. Me being reclusive is more for my friends and families safety than anything else
post #19 of 22
Oh yeah, I'm definately in recluse mode. I've been leaking show and some amniotic fluid for the last couple days and you'd have to drag me from the house. I swear I reek like the fluid, all sweet and musty, but my mom swears she can't smell it, (of course my daughter in the bathroom with me says she can, lol.) I don't want to make or take any phone calls, I've been getting my mom or husband to. I made my husband make the TV in our bedroom actually work, and I'm annoyed the wireless network in the house isn't working well all the way to the bedroom. My favorite part of the day now is the time when everyone else leaves the house! I think I'm gonna try to persuade myself to get out to the chiropractor's appointment today though - my SI joints are giving me grief and maybe it'll help.

I'm in some sort of alter-world mindset - just really in birth-mode but trying to make labor wait until atleast 38 weeks and hopefully after my dh's class on Wednesday (professor won't allow makeups and will just give him a 0 on the test and a huge raise is pending on this class - one we really need - so no pressure there ha ha ).

But really - people want to talk about other things and it's a struggle to track with them.
