Sorry.. just need to get this off my chest.<br><br>
This is our second and our LAST baby. I KNOW I should relish each and every moment of this pregnancy. But I'm really struggling. I'm really uncomfortable and another 10 weeks sounds like an eternity to me. When I wasn't showing much, I wanted to SHOW so I could feel all special and pregnant. Now that I am, it's just uncomfortable and icky. I can't wait to lose the weight and wear normal clothing. I can't wait to not have my face break out and my hair not to feel greasy two hours after I washed it. I want to have sex again without a baby kicking me (SO hard to get turned on when the baby is kicking and this baby is kicking ALL the time!) and losing the mood. I want to climb a flight of stairs and not feel like I ran a marathon. I want to hold my baby and share him or her with my husband and daughter. I'm just DONE. I'm just frustrated, uncomfortable, and ready to get the show on the road!<br><br>
I know I'll miss being pregnant when I'm not. I know I'll mourn the passing of this time of my life once I say goodbye to my child-bearing days.<br><br>
So how come I know this yet can't just enjoy this time?<br><br>
Anybody else DONE but your little bun in the overn just isn't yet?<br><br>
I thought it was a mood that would pass, but it just keeps getting stronger.<br><br>
I also keep having nightmares about all the things that could go wrong.. cleft palate, cerbal palsey, any number of deformations, illnesses, etc etc.. I wonder if just the not knowing is spuring on my need to have this pregnancy over and done with. I know it's normal to worry, but I'm almost obsessed with it in my dreams and that has me worried even more *LOL*..<br><br>
hormones right?

I'm 30 weeks and ready for it to be over too. This will be my FOURTH baby and also my last.<br>
I've never liked being pregnant and having my body taken over, my organs squished around to make room. I find it highly unpleasant. I want to be able to take my toddler to the pumpkin patch without wondering if there'll be a place to sit down or else we'll have to leave after a 1/2 hour or so. I feel heavy, the baby is low and it's uncomfortable to even walk around now.<br><br>
I know it'll be worth it in the end - at least that's my hope. I'm also sick of the plaguing nightmares. One of my twins has very severe cerebral palsy, so I <i>know</i> what can happen first-hand and have been through hell, never wanting to go there again.<br><br>
I try not to think about it and take the pregnancy day by day. If I think about another 10 weeks, it seems an eternity! Some days are better than others and some days I don't even feel very pregnant, and those are good days. 7-10 more weeks is really not long at all in a lifetime and I can do it, especially for a healthy baby I can love and cherish, and knowing I'll never have to do this again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br>
I'm right there with you, Tippytoes!<br><br>
I've never missed being pregnant when I wasn't pregnant, and when we decided to have more children after a very long break in-between (12 yrs), I dreaded the whole pregnancy part of parenting. I thought it might not be as bad as I remembered, and in some ways it isn't and most ways it is and I'm trying not to count down the days till it's over!!

A big fat "ME TOO."<br>
I'm so glad I'm not alone. I even sent my good friend a big whiny email just this morning about how I cannot WAIT to get my normal body back. Ditto on wanting to do sexy things without the baby distracting you!<br><br>
I've wanted to have another baby for years & years, fantasized about it, didn't think I'd ever get to do it again. I'm SO grateful that the stars have aligned in such a way to allow my dreams to come true & I get to have another munchkin. I'm so excited to become a parent with my partner. BUT I'M FREAKING DONE with the pregnancy thing already!!!! I want to be able to breath! To bend down! To eat without heartburn! To SHAVE! To feel sexy & wear cute little clothes & NOT feel like a hairy, uncoordinated whale! To have a vagina that does NOT radiate discharge from itself all the time! To be able to do ANYthing without feeling like I ran a marathon! To not have painful BH cx every 12 seconds! To be able to leave the house without mapping out exactly where every bathroom is on the way! To walk NOT like a penguin!!<br><br>
Aaaah, that was a good vent. Thank you. :LOL

Uhh..yeah, I agree about sex without the baby kicking - I remember that vividly from earlier in my pregnancy.<br><br>
Just wanted to remind you all that you're beautiful even if you don't feel like it! There are times when I feel like the most icky person in the whole world, and other times when I step in front of the mirror before my bath and think, "Wow! Look at the beautiful round belly and those breasts! I am the very defination of lush and fertile!"<br><br>
*hugs*

It's pretty funny how very few of us have responded to this thread, but there's been like a zillion responses to the "I'm just not feeling ready yet to have this baby!" thread in the Nov DDC alone! :LOL We sure a bunch of fickle pregnant chicks.

ha ha ha.. isn't that the truth?<br>
It's the same after the baby is born too. You just can't wait for them to grow up, but you want them to stay babies forever.

Geez, Louise -- I'm right there with you, sisters. I'm almost 34 weeks, and I can't wait to meet this little person -- and bf, and lose weight, and wear cute clothes, and feel sexy again! (I know, I know -- I should be in love with my pregnant self -- and I do adore my belly and boobs. But it's all the extra chub and dimples in my butt, legs, arms and face I'm not too into right now.) My legs feel like sausages and my belly button hurts when it rubs against things like the kitchen counter (which is at just the right height). I'm ready to stop thinking about being pregnant ALL THE TIME! "I'm pregnant, and I need to go to the grocery. I'm pregnant, and is my son awake again -- <i>for like the fourth time tonight</i>? I'm pregnant, and when is my next meeting? Oh, and did I mention I'm pregnant?"
