Hello Feb ladies,

 

We are expecting a little one (his due date is the 5th of Feb), planning a water birth and homebirth.  Getting really really excited to meet him!! 

 

Anyhow, the last two days I have been feeling "off" - not quite dizzy or nauseas, but sort of like that.  Super tired and a bit hazy.  Lots of tiny random BH contractions.  Last week I had a bout of nesting.   I am wondering if anyone has experienced this feeling.  I am thinking that maybe I am getting close?  But I cannot remember if I felt this way with my others.

 

In the back of my mind I am thinking, "Should I be prepared for something soon?  Is this just normal end of prg stuff?"

 

Sorry if I sound really dopey, but am I the only one feeling this way?

 

Thanks for listening.   Maybe I'll go wash diapers....orngtongue.gif

I'm due 2/9 or 2/11 and I've been feeling this way the last three days. I'm attributing it to the hugely full (orange!!) moon out. I'm cleared for a homebirth at this point so I'm trying to just relax, but surrender at the same time to whatever might be coming. And for all I know, that could mean...nothing's coming soon. hug2.gif Hang in there- we're almost done!

thats how i felt all last week...i'm still really tired, i dont remember how i felt before things got going either. i keep wanting to think that everything i feel is a sign things will start...and things arent starting so i get a little disappointed. last night i had 6 contractions in an hour, but as soon as i laid down they went away hopmad.gifhaha

Im totally exhausted.. Im chopping it up to being pregnant and up 10 times a night. Nights like last night when one of my others have a bad night so Im up a bunch with them it gets worse.. I haven't had the energy to do much but sit here and think "I need to be doing something".
