For the last few months I have been in a frenzy trying to get ready for this baby, feeling all this pressure to get it all together. I just kept thinking, oh my god only 8, 7, 6 weeks to go. i have so much to do. Suddenly everything has come to a screeching halt and started going in the opposite direction. Now I am thinking, what? 5 weeks to go? It's sooooooo long to wait! why can't it be two weeks to go? I am sooooo uncomfortable here. This is my third kid and I still find myself wondering how I can get much bigger without my skin splitting open (though still have only gained 21 lbs but I feel like a mountain). anyone else's frenzy turned to impatience? I guess it's pretty normal at this point.

To be honest I am there right with you, this is my 2nd and I got to be big quit early so I sort of have had a belly from week 10 so I feel that I am more then ready now.
I am week 31+6 today and to be honest, I have never had such a horrid pregnancy to be honest... I guess all we can do is sit and wait them out.

I am playing the waiting game too. My freezer is stuffed with home cooked, after birth meals....all my homebirth supplies are bought and arranged, baby's clothing and the like is all washed, the house is completely clean (except for basic maintanence like vacuming etc), birth announcements are on the computer waiting to be printed with birth stats and pics...envelopes addressed...

I was SERIOUSLY nesting can you tell? I am very happy that "all my ducks are in a row" so to speak because it relaxes me and makes me feel secure in some ways, however, now I am only 33 weeks and the days are seeming to drag I feel HUGE...
