Anyone else done with pregnancy?


Although having 8 more weeks left seems like a long time (I'm actually looking at it as less than 60 days which is helping me feel a bit better lol) but I'm so DONE with this pregnancy. My bump from carrying a large baby and having polyhydraminos is so large that I look like I'm due. My bump is constantly tight and sore. When I look at it head on in a mirror, it looks like I'm having twins, I'm so stretched. I get Braxton Hicks daily. I get UTIs super easily. My joints hurt all the time and I dread anytime I have to bend down because it is like doing strength training trying to get back up. Really my legs should be pretty toned after this pregnancy... but they're not. They are retaining fluid and I'm getting stretch marks on my thighs, hips and butt which were places that I've never had stretch marks before. The baby, being so large, always seems to be attacking my poor ribs and organs. SPD is ramping up because I'm carrying around so much extra weight and my ankles are always swollen by the end of the day. I'm sorry that there isn't much point to this post, as it is mostly just me ranting.

How many others out there are "done" with being pregnant?

I'm like this and have this exact feeling. I'm looking forward to having a glass/ bottle of wine at the end to celebrate!
On the flip I suddenly remember I will never feel like this again as its my last and I'm sure I will look back with rose tinted spectacles on and day naww what a wonderful time I had and how I miss it haha...

I'm 5 days overdue, and I'm just trying to enjoy my last few moments of being able to care for myself and leave the house without careful planning and live life without a baby attached to my nipple non-stop. But I am DONE. As you could imagine. SPD, hip dysphasia, prodromal labor, extreme stress at home since I'm caregiver for my father who has dementia and is currently behaving like a teenager, while raising my four wonderful children... I just need a break SOMEwhere. I don't think giving birth and adding a newborn to the mix is gonna help my issues, especially since my SPD tends to continue for months postpartum. But at least I can stop worrying that my stress (which is raising my blood pressure) will hurt my baby.

I'm 13 weeks tomorrow but I am so done! I think I'm only done because the sonographer is pretty sure we are having a girl so I want to meet her!! We've waited 10 years and had 3 sons to get her so it seems almost unfair to have to wait until Feb 2nd. That and I know hubby is going to be bankrupt on Delivery Day because I've told him I want a years' supply of sushi while in hospital if I'm not allowed to eat it at the moment.

I am done physically, but not quite mentally! My body has just given up these last couple of days, but I still have so much to do before baby arrives!

I can't sleep, my back is so sore, I need to pee after I've just peed, I keep choking on acid reflux that wakes me up at 3am, my hips hurt in bed, I can't go grocery shopping because I cannot control the shopping trolley anymore lol... I could go on!

Invest (or borrow if you can) a full body/pregnancy pillow. They are supposed to be fantastic on a sore body and a growing belly. Mylanta for the acid reflux, hot shower to help sooth those hips before bed. As for the constant need to pee, no ideas there.

Yes more than done! 34 weeks tomorrow so still a few weeks out, but I feel like all I do is complain to my husband. Sitting at my desk all day has become a real challenge, and I come home limping like an old lady. Then my 3 year old wants me to take her to the park etc and by the time I go to bed, my entire body feels like it's been hit by a truck. The best part is, even though I'm exhausted, I have the worst insomnia ever and lie there for hours on end trying to fall asleep. I know life with a newborn won't be much easier, but I'm so ready to have her on the outside and start to feel semi-normal myself. Hang in there mamas!

Almost 35 weeks with a very active almost 2 year old. I am getting super sore every day now, getting out of bed is painful! I love this time of my life and I love my babies but I am definitely tired haha. It makes me wish I had family closer to come and babysit for a couple hours ��
