I'm not due until the end of the month, so I know I shouldn't be this impatient, but I'm so ready to be done now.<br><br>
I can't eat a thing. I know I need to eat but everything makes me either nauseous or uncomfortable or both. I have no appetite...save for the random craving for muffins and I can't get comfortable with the help of every pillow in my house. I'm avoiding salt like the plague because that makes it worse.<br><br>
Even when I'm calm and enjoying pregnancy, I can't help but get myself worked up to the point of illness just in worrying about the labor. DH, of course, is trying everything he can, but is no real consolation in anyway. If he touches me its too hard or not hard enough. I'm upset when he's not here because I miss him and am trying to savor every last moment of just him and I that I can, but when he is here I'm frustrated becasue he can't even put a carton of eggs back in the fridge.<br><br>
I can't wait to meet my little girl. I can't wait to hold her and look at her and touch her and I know that this is just temporary...but today I'm struggling with being in the starting blocks. Tomorrow, I'm going to try with all my might to enjoy myself and relax. Save for a lone tennis match, I'm not going to watch television....I'm going to leave my house and go socalize with some people...<br><br>
I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't come on this board and just vent all of the frustrations of pregnancy to women who understand.

Vent away! We have all felt the same way at some time or another. Just know that time is almost up!

I hope you catch some relief soon. Sometimes it seems like we go through phases where things are just TOUGH and then, we get a little break. I hope you get that break.<br><br>
You can do this. You ARE doing this! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I was feeling like that a couple of weeks ago too, but it was a phase and it passed. Then as I came to peace with the fact that this baby is going to come when she's good and ready and not one minute before I started to feel much better. Now that I'm at almost 41w I'm starting to swing back the other way, but I know this too will pass. Try and be patient, you're not crazy and you're not alone! Good luck!

One day at a time. I know it is tuff, I was feeling similar to how you describe all last week, and this week things have lightened up and I've really been able to enjoy myself. Just try and take it one day at a time<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I was feeling really impatient right when I hit 37 weeks, but have relaxed and accepted things now. Just hang in there. A few more weeks will go by quickly.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/grouphug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="grouphug">
