So, I'm about 39 weeks. I'm not overly anxious about the baby's arrival. Of course, I'm ready, and all that late pregnancy stuff, but not anxious.

What I am, however, is an extremely emotionally unstable mess! I'm not an overly emotional woman normally. I don't break down terribly easily, and I cope well with things for the most part.

Oh my goodness, though...I start bawling and then it gets to that nearly hysterical hyperventilating kind..sheesh. I can't remember being so darned emotional over dumb things, ever!

Anyone else a blubbering mess?

OH! OH! Me, Me!. My poor children. I think it has a lot to do with my Dh being gone and fear of going into labor with no one here.

I'm very emotional! I have felt like I am on the verge of tears at all moments today. I am also worrying about a lot of things - such as getting stuff ready for my DPs birthday this Friday (my due date!) I also have an irrational fear that I will go into labor and he will be at a show where he can't hear his phone and he'll have the car and I will be stuck finding someone else to take me to the hospital and he'll miss everything. And I'm afraid of being a mom, being able to do it all, surviving labor, how my pets are going to be.... yeah I'm emotional! I get to be this way after birth too???

Yes! I'm almost crazy in fact. DH works graveyard shift and Thursday forgot to turn his phone on- I contracted all night of course, and last night totally forgot the phone!! Ask me how rationally I dealt with that.

Oh, and today when the NEW transmission that we just put in (and cost a bizillion dollars) a week ago went while I was out, let me tell you, it wasn't pretty.

This week has been just a bit better than last week, but yeah, I'm in this club too! I completely freaked out on dh last week cause the dog peed on the floor. Then I burst into tears and melted into a puddle cause I felt so badly for being an irrational crazy lady. Then I was up all night crying cause I couldn't figure out how I'm going to make it any longer if I'm such a mess. Fortunately, it hasn't been that bad since! But, I still feel like crying all the time and my patience level is extremely small. And, yeah, I don't remember ever being *this* much of an emotional wreck before, either.

I was for the two weeks before baby! I cried every day. Some cries were more weepy and others were the out of control hyperventilating type.

Now by the end of the day I am an impatient mess. Every little thing bothers me. My poor kids--except baby! HE can do no wrong!

caution: one-handed nak

typos likely

I guess I could be worse, but my all-time giggely mood I have had during most of this pregnancy has definitely passed. Now I am grumpy, frustrated and always close to tears. Poor DS is just getting on my nerves and DH is doing a great job being patient and keeping him out of my hair.
The waiting is just killing me! and this baby is BIG and always high up in my ribs. I wonder when she'll get fed up with bumping her feet and bum on my ribcage constantly - I sure am.
Yesterday I was so fed up that I went for a 2.5km hike uphill and then even climbed the stairs of the scarily high look-out. Afterwards I walked on the curb for a while and now I have a rather sore pelvis but still no baby.

On top of it all the weather is horrible, way too cold for this time of the year and so much rain that I just can't be bothered to leave the house.

Yes, I am!! I am either crying or grumpy and cranky. My poor kids and husband are tired of my lack of patience. I am really looking forward to this baby coming so I can get myself back.
