I have 2.5 weeks left before my schd. c-birth on the 19th. I am so tired and irritable and exhausted and cranky. I don't want to do ANYTHING. I mean it. *****N-O-T-H-I-N-G!!!!!!!!!*****My normal household chores irritate and frustrate me. The children's constant talking is making my brain scream "SHUT UP" inside my head. My dh's snoring is like nails on a chalk board. Even if everyone was waiting on me hand and foot I'd probably still feel crabby! LOL! I just putz from room to room in discontent. If supper takes more than 10 minute to prepare, forget it, we're having sandwiches! I just can't figure out, if this is normal hormones, or what. If it's "normal" to feel this way, what would be the biological reason-that we will be so thankful to get the baby out that we welcome the pain? I feel so unprepared for delivery. We don't even have the crib together or the blankets sewn for the moses basket or the sweater knitted that I started weeks ago.<br>
My MIL is supposed to order the diapers from the diaper service, no word on that yet, etc., etc., etc.,......<br><br>
I felt GREAT up until a couple of weeks ago. I was motivated and strong and had no major complaints 'cept heartburn. I felt like a real iron woman, now i feel like a sniveling whiney baby....Even my dh is fed up with hearing how tired I am and he's usu. the model of patience and undertanding. I feel like i have to press on. no matter what, but then I just find myself sitting and staring out the window or even at static on the TV! LOL!<br><br>
Am I insane, or what!

TreeLove - I can COMPLETELY relate!! I feel badly that you are feeling this way, but in a way happy to hear I'm not the only one!! I have become a B*tch on wheels these past few weeks! My poor family has been suffering the consequences!! I'm due Thurs/Frid and I have tried everything to get this baby out naturally and am SCREAMING inside!!!! I need to get her out for the better of my family and my psychological well-being!!<br><br>
Sorry i don't have any good advice, but at least know this is definately some hormonal thing that you are not the only one!!

It is normal! I was the same way the last few weeks of my pregnancy. I didn't want to do anything at all, even talk to family. I was so annoyed by everything and everyone that I only wanted to see and talk to DH. I got to where I wasn't even answering the phone because I got annoyed with the caller in just a few minutes and had to come up with an excuse to get off the line. I was so big too that I didn't want to get in and out of the car, especially if I was driving. I waddled everywhere and was just so damn uncomfortable. Hmmm, I guess I know what I have to look forward to in about 34 more weeks. lol

glad to hear I'm not alone!<br><br>
mamasuz-your description is SOOOO funny and TRUE! I have been avoiding one of my good friends for about a week because I didn't have the energy to talk! Dh asks me a question and I feel too tired to answer, too tired to even *think* of an answer. That's why the children are bugging me so much. They are such inquisitive little guys that my brain often feels like it's melting while I'm trying to think of the answer to their seemingly endless questions. I don't want to go anywhere, do anything, plan anything, think of anything, say anything, yet I'm bored just sitting in my chair. I don't like bedtime because I can't sleep (I have to pee every 2 hours, all night long), but yet it's all I think about all day-BEDTIME.<br><br>
Being pg can be so funny!

Me too! I'm 38 weeks.<br><br>
I'm exhausted, huge, uncomfortable, and I can't get anything done.<br><br>
I'm also up all night to pee, in pain from my hips, or with leg cramps.<br><br>
I think it must be nature's way to make you accept getting the baby out!<br><br>

Aww Treelove, 9/19 buddy :LOL--I really know how you feel, too. I have moments where if dh asks me ONE question I feel like EVERYONE wants SOMETHING from me! Shouldn't I be sitting in some lush chamber while everyone waits on me hand and foot?!<br>
And I don't want to talk to people either because I just don't want to spend energy talking about how I'm feeling. Plus that means if I talk to someone I stand the chance of getting pissed off by something they say--i.e.-you must be really big right now, lol...<br><br>
Don't do anything-I don't! Except for mind-numbing things like reading People magazine, watching VH1, playing solitaire and doing crossword puzzles!

With my DS, I never questioned this. A very close friend of mine kept telling me *The last month is there so that you welcome labor.* Since I didn't know anything else, I accepted her words. So I'm telling all of you:<br>
The last month is there so that you welcome labor.

oh my, thanks for that! i've sort of been thinking that way already...feeling SO ready to be done and looking forward to labor starting!<br><br>
i've had my grouchy moments. lost my temper a few times with dd, which was scary. i'm normally a pretty mellow person. taking a bath by myself with some lavender essential oils in the morning helps...but sometimes i'd much rather sleep than bathe! hee hee. i also think taking extra b vitamins really helps in general with any hormonal stuff. i've been taking b-complex since i was on the pill years ago, and dh can tell if i've skipped taking them for a few day - i get moody, tired, and start to break out! hee hee. the b's help, but they are certainly not a miracle cure for the last weeks of pregnancy. its just downright uncomfortable, darnit! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bigeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bigeyes">
