I was reading the other thread about people feeling like the baby's right on it's way. I'm 34 weeks, and I can't imagine having this baby in as soon as 3 weeks from now. I thought I was supposed to be feeling like a beached whale at this point, but I feel, well, normal. A little lazy and unfocused, have a harder time getting up, am definitely big, but... well, I don't feel imminent at all.<br><br>
Anybody else in this club? I'm not complaining, but it messes with my head. I still have a ton of baby gear I need to acquire and assorted tasks and errands to get done, and I just don't feel the urgency I should!!

I'm right there with you!! I am a little over 34 weeks, and I always go over 40. I feel big, but not *too* big. I also feel no real urgency to get baby things done.. I just was looking through baby clothes, and this baby boy only has a small stack of clothes.. and we're broke, so I am just hoping I get some hand me downs within the next month or so.. but I'm not too worried about it.

I feel no impending doom. I think she may be early but if anything I feel up against the clock. I am not in a hurry for this pregnancy to be over. It has gone so well, I really have no complaints and aside from heartburn am not that uncomfortable...although being REALLY short the steering wheel is starting to get in the way! I have 1/2 inch to go till I am on it!

A babe in the belly is easier than a babe in arms. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I am just so nervous for some reason!

At least a belly-baby is quiet when it wakes up every two hours. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
I'm in the "can't imagine anytime soon" club. I figure to go well over 40 weeks, and am just now at 33 weeks anyway. I've enrolled in a summer pottery class at the university, and am generally having a good ol' relaxing time.

Me too! I don't think I'm even close, I'm 33w 5d and I'm betting I'll go at least to 37-38. I just don't feel like it is imminent. Baby is very high, very few BH contrax, no prodromal labor or anything. I just have my big old belly getting in the way of everything, and I'm uncomfortable and tired but not horribly so.<br><br>
Also, nothing is ready for this child...so maybe that has something to do with it. I figure if he came tomorrow, we've got some diapers, a couple of pieces of clothing, and his co sleeper thing...we'll be fine until someone goes shopping for me.<br><br>
DD was two weeks late...so we'll see how long I go this time <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I'm at 35 weeks and feel the same way. We still need to go get baby supplies - besides furniture shopping and about a billion clothes from our shower we haven't bought anything - and yes, this is our first baby so we have nothing. I haven't started packing my hospital bag, though I did make a list.<br><br>
I think we're going baby shopping this weekend and I'll probably start the packing process. Just doesn't seem like I really need to do it yet for some reason.

35w5d here, and feeling like I should have months yet to go! I'm not feeling overly large, no real physical discomforts to speak of. When I realize that this baby will be out in 6 1/2 weeks or less, I can't even fathom it. We're pretty well stocked on the necessities, although our CD stash will need bulking up to get us to full time status, and a bigger bed couldn't hurt. Other than that, I'm just waiting ever more patiently than I thought possible. I feel as if I should be making detailed lists or something. I am a little nervous about reality hitting and having this peaceful calm shatter...

I am bigger than I was with my first so I feel like I am going to explode! I can't squeeze into small places anymore and it's driving me crazy, can't see to shave my bikini area and have moved to slip on shoes because there is no way I want to have to scrunch down to tie laces. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I am 33 weeks and having been growing that typical "1cm per week" so am about 33cm. I can't imagine that my tummy will grow another 7cm!

My daughter came at 34 1/2 weeks and I will be that next week, so that is kinda making it feel more real to me. Aside from that I am pretty comfortable, I love the obvious pregnant look and am basking in the extra care and attention that I know will soon leave <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>

I'm right there. I'm 33 5/7 weeks, and I can't imagine that this baby will come before 40-41 weeks. But, I am uncomfortable. My feet are very, very swollen at the end of the day. I've had to buy new, bigger shoes, and I can leave an indention in my ankle from about 3 pm on. My fingers are sore when I move them, and I can't wear my rings anymore. I keep hoping that that will go away, and I'll still be pregnant! LOL

yeah, with dd i was in such a hurry! this time, i'm almost 37 weeks, still feeling great with the exception of feeling like my butt and thighs could not get any bigger <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> - i keep thinking of things i need to do, work stuff i need to wrap up, house projects that need to get done. of course part of me is thinking maybe this not-readiness will make him come early? but really, i'm thinking more of 41 wks, which is when i had my daughter. i'm sure by then, i'll be more than ready!!!!
