Ugh, I'm so done!

I'll be 37 weeks tomorrow, according to "their" calendar. According to me, who actually knows when I conceived, I'll be 39 weeks. Yup, that's right, a full two weeks ahead of what they think. I'm not used to being this huge, b/c I only gained 9lbs with DD (lost 13 then gained back to pre-pg weight, then 9lbs on top, so a true total of 22lbs). I've already gained 26lbs as of last week, go in today to find out how much more. I feel like a whale. This heat is oppressive. I know, I'm complaining an awful lot. But I'm so darn uncomfortable, and chasing after a toddler is exhausting on a normal day, let alone on a day when I've been up peeing all night and I'm carrying around a 30lb basketball in my stomach. Urgh. I'm looking forward to the birth, I'm planning a home waterbirth which I'm very excited about. We set up the fishy pool and did a test run last weekend. It felt AWESOME to float weightless in there. DD of course jumped in with me, and now talks about the pool every time she comes into our bedroom. Let's see how much she wants to get in when mommy is screaming her head off.

Oh I know, it's not all bad. At least I don't have to scoop the cat poop. :lol The midwife thinks this baby is only 5 1/2 lbs, which is teeny to me, and seems really weird. She was pretty much dead on with guessing DD's weight, so she knows what she's talking about. Meh, who knows. We'll find out when she decides to arrive.

I hear the end is the hardest... I'm sorry mama! I never went past 36 weeks, so I can't understand what you are going through, but I'm still sorry!!

Re: Ugh, I'm so done!

Im feeling your pain! Im going in for a c-section on monday thank god! It is so friken hot and i feel like a beached whale as well. Ive gained about 35 lbs and my last two children were 10 and 11 lbs at birth so i think ive got a biggin here is well. Going by your calculations you only have about a week left- i hope it passes quickly for yoU!

I know the exact day i concieved as well but they still use there stupid paper dial thing to calculate my due date...as if we dont know our bodies best eh!


hang in there hun- get some cold cloths and lay em on your forehead and neck and sit in front of a fan you will be holding your sweet little baby before you know it!

Re: Ugh, I'm so done!

I hear ya! Isn't it frustrating when you know your real due date, but the doctor still wants to go by theirs? In my case, both times my real date was a week or two later than theirs, so the doctor got all panicky the first time because I hadn't had her yet and he kept pushing to induce me!

Good birthing vibes to ya!
