It seems like my pregnancy has just flown by... and now each hour of each day seems to drag on and on.<br><br>
Why does the end of pregnancy have to put me in such misery. I'm really trying hard to keep my spirits up, and I know I have 5 days till my EDD and 2 weeks after that I could still realistically be pg... it's just that emotionally I just can't take it any longer.<br><br>
Two weeks of prodromal labor that starts and stops... it's such a tease and I'm tired of it.<br><br>
Speaking of tired, I'm so exhausted I almost missed my MW apt today because I literally couldn't get myself off the couch and get ds ready (he ran around naked for 2 hours after we got out of the shower because I didnt' have the willpower to fight him to get him diapered and dressed).

I feel the same way. I have indigestion, I can't get a good night's sleep, I've been snippy with my poor DS and DH. I just want the baby out!! I was just thinking how I never want to be pregnant again!!

me too ladies - this is really driving me nuts. Both my husband and I are on leave right now so it feels like each day that passes is another we don't get to spend with the baby before we have to go back to work. I need to stop thinking about that and enjoy our time together.<br><br>
The house is cleaner than it has ever been, the lawn is landscaped, and all my crafty type projects are finished. ugh. And, of course, we are so excited to meet this baby that it is all we think about. plus, the neverending phone calls from friends and family. anyone else getting those? I don't answer it anymore. Oh, and the daily contractions that keep getting stronger and longer making me think "maybe this is it" are driving me nuts - but they can't be a bad sign so I just keep thinking...maybe only a few more days. What a strange time!

Yes! Lots of phone calls. Also random contractions..sometimes 3 will be 5 minutes apart and I think here we go! Then nothing! Maybe if I finish the diaper bag I'm working on he'll decide to show up.

I'm right there with you all...at least you are having some type of action with the prodromal labor and all........ I have had nothing but quiet BH for the last few months. I have a constant backache and now I feel bloated with gas <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> not too comfy right now. Mucous plug keeps coming out a little at a time that I don't een think about it any more and when I have loose bowels...well, I don't care, it isn't a sign for me anymore... I have swelling and high bp at my visits yuck! It's so depressing and LONG with this pregnancy!!!! But actually when I think of it the last 9 months have gone by quickly and hopefully soon we will all be in the Life with a babe forum together!

Yeah, they can't stay in there forever. Hubby keeps reminding me that I was this miserable the last few days of being preggy with my first. Lovnbnhome, I agree the first 9 months went by quickly..but darn this last week is taking forever!!
