Any in 37-40 weeks emotional about prelabor and other things in life?
Well, I know it's normal for pregnant ladies to get emotional. I haven't been emotional since the start of the 3rd trimester. But here I am - 38 weeks and I am emotional. Really emotional. I am sad and mad and frustrated with various things. For one, I feel as if I can be pregnant forever because nothing has happened as far as labor goes and the wait is just killing me. Other friends have gone and gave birth in their 38-39 weeks. I must not be normal.
Second, my sister just texted me her OH has bought her a car, and I am happy for her. Yet, in turn, I feel so bad and sad for myself. Her OH makes decent income, not much, but decent, you know? My OH, on the other hand, makes over 70k a year, yet he can't even set aside some money to save for a car for me. I basically am like a stay at home wife/OH. Lately, he has spent over 2k to fix up his car in order to make it faster, more power (he's that type, loves cars). I can't take away his passion for cars, but I wish he would think about me too. My other girl friends are stay at home mothers and their OHs/DHs have bought them a car Yet mine thinks I can make do without.
I mean.....I just feel like nothing is working in my favors. I guess it's all pregnancy hormones doing this to me??? I don't know. I am depressed....imagine if baby is here. I think I will be worse than this. I mean, life isn't fair............I even thought about leaving him after baby is here because he is not fair in many ways......
Is it just hormones? Does anyone understand what I mean? Do you feel like this sometimes? Am I normal?
I think it's perfectly normal. I've had a horrible time with hormones for the past few weeks. I've had some thoughts about leaving OH too for various reasons. I don't know if this has been proven true, but I did read one study that suggests that human females (like most animals) have the instinct to leave their mate right before birth. I have definitely been feeling that, but it could just be a result of all the fun last month of pregnancy symptoms.
I do think you should press the car issue. How are you supposed to be a stay at home mom without transportation? It does seem selfish on his part. And it definitely seems like everyone is having their babies at 37-38 weeks! I keep reminding myself that most babies are born between 39-41 weeks so actually they're the more 'abnormal' ones. I'm still jealous though!
I'm sorry you're feeling so low, but I hope you know you're definitely not alone in feeling this way. I hope you start feeling better soon!! And our LOs will be here before we know it.
