I’m 35 weeks and it’s been… probably 3 weeks already since I got sick of being pregnant. :

I’m 31 weeks, and have officially been over it for about a week now. I developed vericose veins in my groin, aka vulvar varicosities. So it constantly feels like someone punched me in my lady bits. My midwife says it’s going to get worse.

I’m 34 weeks, and I’m sort of in between on this one.  In certain ways I want this baby out right now.  I’ve been nauseous since 6 weeks, my back and hips kill, I feel like I weigh a million pounds, and carrying around a very low baby is pretty awkward.  My belly literally rests on my lap right now, and I walk (and feel) like I have a bowling ball in between my legs. 

Oh the other hand, I think I would freak out if the baby was born today.  I still feel like we have plenty of things to prepare, and I’m still trying to emotionally come to terms with the fact that there is going to be another person in our household soon, 

My last day going into work is March 9th, and I think that once I’m at home alone all day waiting for the baby I’m going to get really antsy really quickly.

I’m almost 34 week–I think at about 30/31 was when I was over it. Work and commuting are getting really hard. My friends invited me to go see the Hunger Games with them on opening night 3/23 because they know I love the books. I said, “um, I absolutely NOT!” I just want to stay inside on my couch and have a bucket for peeing and have someone bring me food and water until I deliver.

I’m 34 weeks 4 days and I’m right there with you! I started to get pretty tired of it last week. We’re in the home stretch, though!

As soon as I moved into my third trimester, I was over it (with both of our kids)!  I had morning sickness for the first four months, felt better in the second trimester but as the third trimester approached, I was getting too huge to be comfortable and could barely get a good nights rest!

Pregnancy was the longest 41+weeks of my life!  I was pretty much done with it as soon as my clothes nolonger fit.  Let me tell you – based on my experience, the “holy crap I feel like someone’s kicking me in the crotch” feeling just gets worse….  And when you FINALLY reach your due date and nothing is happening, it kind of feels like waking up on Christmas morning, and discovering Santa missed your house… 🙂

BUT it’s all worth it in the end!!!!  Hang in there!

Last time by 7 months I was totally over it. I’m not there yet, but I know it’s coming up soon.

27 weeks and totally over it. Granted, I’m also completely unprepared as far as having the nursery ready, but I want my body back. I miss sleeping on my back, not having to wake up at 1am every night to pee, being able to turn over when I sleep without feeling like I pulled a muscle, being able to put on my shoes, paint my toenails, shave my bikini area without lifting my belly up. And drink cocktails (instead of mocktails). And not have people tell me that I look like I’m smuggling a basketball. And I just grew out of my workout shirts, so NOW I need to find something to wear to the gym where my belly doesn’t poke out the bottom (and the answer is not DH’s shirts – I tried those on last night and I look like I was swallowed by a cotton monster – he’s super tall so all the sleeves on his t’s go to my elbows).


Man, that felt good to get out.

I’m 30 weeks + 4 days and I’m not there yet. And frankly I’m not sure I would get there?

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that this pregnancy has been really easy thus far, I’ve gotten lucky! My bump is not on the big side. I def have the aches and pains and the tiredness. But nothing I can’t handle.
