Oh yeah. I SO understand this! I am 38 weeks, 3 days today -- not that I'm counting, LOL. I can tell things are moving along, changes are occurring in my body. Initially, that served to encourage me, but now that nothing "real" is happening, it's turning to discouragement, and an irrational feeling that this baby will just stay inside me forever, meanwhile I will continue to experience painful contractions that accomplish nothing except to put me in discomfort.
Also, I have found that my anxiety regarding labour and the health of the baby has just skyrocketed recently. I just want to get it over with so I can stop worrying about it, because I'm sure it will go better than the disaster scenarios I am so great at creating.
I'm also really really really looking forward to being able to tie my shoes again! Hell, just to see my feet again! Shave my legs. Lie on my back or my stomach. Bend over. And meet this baby.
Well, none of us will be pregnant forever -- even though it may feel like it.
