So I’m huge.
Almost 37 weeks and carrying low.
I literally feel like I’m going to burst.
I potentially have 5 weeks to go if I am 2 weeks over.
My belly skin is thin and painful and I’ve got stretchmarks around my belly button. I’ve put on countless pounds (literally, I’ve stopped counting) I’m up 4-6 times a night for a wee and still get heartburn. I’m eating anything and everything and have grown about 4 extra chins. I struggle to look after my 2 year old. I feel less than sexy and SO READY to have this little boy.
Anyone else due soon and totally done???

I felt like that around 37 weeks. My feet were SO swollen and my back hurt so bad. I ended up going into labor at 37+6 so I’ll cross my fingers the same happens for you!!! (Have sex…I know it sounds like the worst thing in the world but I’m convinced it’s why I went into labor early!!!)

I feel your pain – I am “only” at 34 weeks but baby is big due to some other health issues (meaning I am huge) and I have been told I will be induced and have the baby early. Right now I can go approx 45-1hr between pee breaks and I only do things for 30 minutes at a time, and then need another 30 minutes to recover from all of my “hard work”. That said, I have actually been ready to have this baby out for most of my pregnancy (don’t get me wrong – really excited to meet my tiny human, just have not really enjoyed pregnancy) and feel like this pretty much all the time:

I’m only 32 weeks but the area from below my breasts to the top of my bump burns, stings, is numb, and just feels like it is ripping apart. Can’t wait for the next 8 weeks! (SARCASAM ALERT.)

I’m also 34 weeks pregnant. I have to say, I’ve felt pretty dang good up until just about this week. My feet started swelling, my engagement ring doesn’t fit anymore and I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with GD. So now can I not only not drink, I can’ even freakin eat what I want anymore!!! So far, I’m keeping it diet controlled, which puts me at a maximum delivery date of my due date. I’m trying for a VBAC (DS is almost 2) this time around so starting at 37 weeks… sex, spicy foods and walking it is!!!

MeandYou : OOOoomg…I totally feel you. I’m also almost 37 weeks and while I’ve been really lucky so far with symptoms (fingers crossed!!), I’m so over not being able to take a deep breath, insomnia + peeing 4x per night, feeling like my belly is literally going to burst open “Alien style” at all times and the constant back pain! And I reallyyyy just want to sit outside with my husband and drink an ice cold dIPA (or like 3, because dammit I deserve it) since the weather is finally getting nice here. Human gestation is about 6 weeks too long In My Humble Opinion haha.

I think this is wishful thinking but I’m getting a few niggles over here… it’s 3.30am and I’ve had a few BH with some back pain. I hope this is the start of something!
