I am almost 37 weeks pregnant. I will be 37 weeks on sunday. I have been getting contrations like crazy for about a week maybe more and shooting pains in my you hoo. It is so hard to chase after my 4 and 2 year old. Is everyone one else ready to be done? I am so tired of being so cranky and in pain.lol

Hey there. I'm sorry to hear you are so miserable. Two kids and pregnant can't be easy. We have a daughter who will be three in February and our son will be 5 months on Wednesday. I thought it was hard with one toddler. The good news is you are almost done. Your last couple weeks will no doubt be miserable and painful, but then you get a baby out of it and it is all worth it- you know that, or you wouldn't be doing this for the third time! As a third time mommy, you have an advantage over all the first timers. You know what is coming and you know how to take care of a newborn. For me it wasn't nearly as hard with the second one as with our first. Three kids is out of the question for me. I am at my limit. You are to be commended. I hope things go smoothly for you come delivery. Congratulations.

Thanks for the comment. I have just been so tired because my 2 year old son has had croup for 3 days now. Last night was the first night he has slept. I had him in the hospital on wed because he was so bad. He is finally better. I just can't wait to have him already.

austynmommy, i totally understand!!! I'm 36 1/2 weeks and i have a 21 month old. I have been having contractions on and off since Thanksgiving and pain and pressure in the hoo hoo too...lol How much longer do we put up with this? I don't remember is being so harsh the first baby. I had some contractions with her...not bad 3 times over the span of like a week and then when I was 40 weeks and 6 days, i went into true labor. Now these braxton hicks are more painful and i never got a shooting pain like this before...i guess it's the head hitting the cervix? Do you know what you are having? We don't, and I can't wait! Are you dilated at all? I get checked on Tuesday.

Were having another boy. So that will be a 4 year old girl and 2 year old boy. They checked me on Monday and I was only 1 cm and 50 percent effaced. I go back on tuesday and i'm not sure if they will check me or not. Let me know how your appointment goes.

austynmommy--i feel your pain i am 37 weeks as of today and are ready to have this baby...I have a 7 year old boy so its not as bad for me because he can do for himself. This pregnancy has been I hate to say it but horrible the whole time. I have had pains for a few months now and you can forget trying to lift my legs for anything I tried moving a box with my leg the other day and about died from the pain it shot up there....hang in there thought were almost done!!!

Ladies with toddlers and being pregnant, hats off to you! I don't know how you do it! I am 32 weeks with my first baby and I have preeclampsia and I don't know how I would do it with littles ones running around too! I am going to be induced or csection at 37 weeks due to the preeclampsia, so I only have 5 more weeks but I am so nervous. This pregnancy has already gone by so fast! The next 5 weeks will go fast too! :(

They checked me today and the baby is way low behind my pubic bone at around -0 station. No dilation yet but cervix is soft...she didn't say how soft % wise....let me know what they say about you!

37 weeks here, with a 13 month old! It is quite a challenge indeed. I am 2 cm dilated and about completely effaced, and of course, going no where. It's an adventure in discomfort!

HeavenIsMine, wow! My son is 12 months old, I'm 33 wks and am so tired; you must be exhausted! Is your little one walking? My guy is still cruising and climbing, but he is SO busy. Definitely gives me a workout! :) Hope you go soon. Do you know what you're having?

Hey ladies, I am 31weeks and 4days...I have a 5 yr old son and 3 year old daughter. I feel so GUILTY because my house is a wreck and lately I cant even get the kids to school on time!! I am falling apart! I think I am starting to get depressed. Please let me know if this is normal. I just cant wait untill he is born!!!!!


FlyBear - December 18

Breezie, don't feel too bad. I don't even have any other kids and my house has been a mess lately. I'm just so tired. Unlike everyone else I'm not nesting, I'm sleeping. lol I was so depressed last night looking around at everything that needed to be done but after a day at work, a dr's appointment, doing the grocery shopping, going out to buy the baby's carseat/stroller and then making dinner I didn't feel like doing any housework. :(


breezieb - December 18

Thanks Flybear! It is so weird how I cant remember how I felt for the other two. It is like when it is over it all becomes a blur. I am very excited though because I just got a real job working my own hours at home!! I have been looking FOREVER for something I can do from home and it is all scams, you have to put up money for the job etc... FINALLY I am hired in a position! My house is still a mess and dh is out of town for work. UH!! I just want to get things together!!! One of my friends is coming to sleep over tonight to help with some stuff. I should feel much better after! yeah!!!!
