I know how you feel. It's DOES take forever! At least that's what it feels like to me.

It does seem to take forever and accept for feeling like c___p sometimes I am enjoying it. These are the last few months that you will have to yourself. ENJOY IT You will be wishing you were still pregnant when you have a screaming baby who won't sleep at 1:00 in the morning....

I am waiting to get past the 12 week mark (have had 2 miscarriages) and it feels like it's taking forever! (I'm 6 weeks on Friday) time just seems to crawl when you want it to go fast doesn't it! xxx

Hey, I can relate now that I'm 38 wks but I worked (still working) the whole time and that did help the days go by...

In the first few months, I was planning a wedding, then moving into an apartment with my husband, and all while I was working, so it went by pretty good for me. Now, I'm at 34 weeks, and it seems to be going slower. I still am not done with the nursery yet, and we have to get the crib. I recommend procrastinating, then it'll seem like things are going by faster! = )

I can relate to that. After having one miscarriage my first three months were a real nervous time for me. I looked at the calender 100 times a day. I now mark the time by events to happen. Eg I have exams at the end of June by that time I will be 27 weeks etc. I cant wait and the HOT summer does not help either. Good luck to all you ladies. Dont worry Alison the time will soon past.


Alison - May 10

Thanks Karen I look at the calendar too much too! Also I count down to events eg my first prenatal appointment with the midwife is next Wednesday so I'm focussing on getting that done then I'll concentrate on the scan date once I know it! Thanks for the rea__surance I'm sure I'll look back in a few months and it will seem quicker looking back. I hope the time starts to go quick for you too! xxx

You girls are funny! I too feel like I've been pregnant for MONTHS and I'm only 6 weeks. I, like Alison, am nervously awaiting the 12 week mark as I just had a close friend suffer a miscarriage last week - she was 7 weeks. It's scary and feels very real now... trying not to worry but it's hard. I'm excited about showing but I have a feeling it will be a while. I'll probably just look fat for the next 6 months. :)


Alison - May 10

Vanessa I can't wait to start showing too! When is your due date? If I calculated mine right it is 6th January :o) roll on 12 weeks (or 24th June!)

I sometimes wish pregnancy would only be 2 trimesters. Yes it can take forever but it seems to go faster at the begining. I am 28 weeks and it seems to be taking forever now... I want to meet my baby already.


ES - May 10

My pregnancy was very slow in the beginning and the middle got better I think because I also have had miscarriages and I felt like this was real. Now at 30 weeks or should I say beginning my 30th week I am absolutely sick and tired of waiting and every day seems to take longer than the last. I hope it gets better but my goodness I want to have my baby and enjoy her.

It should take forever! After all we are preggers for the best part of one year!


Misty - May 10

Ooooooh Mary. :-( Now why did you have to go and say something like that? Bad preggie, bad bad bad. :-) I knew pregnancy felt like it was taking forever, but I really wasn't that bothered by it till you brought up the fact that 9 months really is a good part of a full year. Ahhhhhhhh. That is o.k. though. I'm at 17 weeks. Most of that year has already been gone through for me right? :-) j/k.


vanessa - May 10

Hi Alison. I am due on December 31st. I will be 7 weeks at the end of this week. I can tell you that I have not suffered a previous miscarriage - this is my first ever pregnancy - but I am equally as nervous about the possibility. I think the worst part is that 99% of the time, there is NOTHING that can be done to prevent it. It's genetic. That makes me feel very vulnerable and I hate it. Hang in there with me... we can and WILL hit the 12 week mark.. together!


ES - May 10

Does anyone feel like this is an extended version of what I call nonexistant days off. Work days take forever but when your off work time seems to disappear? I hate that.
