i am 2 days from 37 weeks, and am so tired of being pregnant. i feel huge! only a few shirts left that actually cover my entire belly. i don't feel like doing a dang thing, either! where is my burst of nesting energy? i feel like i am just plodding through the days with my poor 2 year old  who needs more than i am able to give her right now. is time standing still?! *sigh*

Hugs. Not much longer to go now. Take it a day at a time. You'll get through.

We all understand.

I think it's totally ok to be just keeping up with the minimum right now.  I'm not even cooking or shopping at this point lol.  Not too much longer!

My shirts don't fit either.  It sucks that the weather is cooling down and unless I'm wearing the one or two that still fit a light breeze is torture.  I'm also getting to that point where I can't sit up.  Forget trying to maintain a position that encourages baby to turn anterior, I'm just trying to sit without feeling like I'm getting all smooshed up inside.  Sitting normally just doesn't cut it anymore.  I have my foot rest and I'm practically laying on the couch.


And yes I think there is some kind of time-warp phenomenon.  As soon as you get big enough to just want to get it over with little fairies make each second twice as long as its supposed to be.

Hang in there! I am only 35.5 weeks and already feeling very lazy...my husband has been asking when the burst of energy will kick in ;) Take good care of yourself and don't feel guilty for wanting to rest and relax!
