OK, so not my usual title for a post but I am going to be honest, I'm frustrated and fed up!
I wasn't sure if I wanted to blog about this or not, as it felt a little pessimistic. But after reading Jess from Lilypod and Sweetpea's 10 Downsides to Blogging post, I felt a little more inspired to put my thoughts and feelings out there. Who knows, maybe you've felt the same too! If not, then maybe you can help me snap out of it...
Let me just start by saying that I love being pregnant. Growing and carrying our little bundle of joy has been such an amazing experience, and I can't believe that it's soon coming to an end... that being said, what is taking so long?!
I don't know about you fellow preggo ladies/mummies out there, but did the last few days/weeks just suck?! I have only three days until my due date, but I am just so fed up of waiting! I've been pregnant for almost 40 weeks. 277 days according to my pregnancy app... so can you blame me for just wanting it to be over?
My phone is forever bleeping with messages and calls from my wonderful family and friends asking "any signs?", "is the baby here yet?" or "how are you feeling?" and although I am so grateful to have so many people who care, I am getting so tired of sending polite replies when all I really want to say is how fed up I am of waiting, and if there were any news trust me, you would know!
I am so so happy for all my blog and non-blog friends who have recently had their little bundles of joy, but it makes me a little sad that I'm not there yet! It's not long now, but I can't help but get a little jealous when I see pictures and posts of their gorgeous babies and just wish that were me!
I feel like a prisoner in my own home, not wanting to go out or go too far if I do, just in case my labour starts! But at the same time I am so bored of staying in just waiting, and as all my friends and family are at work I am a little lonely. There's only so much daytime TV I can watch, and all my housework is up to date so I really struggle to fill my time.
Have any of you felt like this in your pregnancy? Or am I just being a little overly hormonal and need to give myself a shake?
Again, sorry for the little rant - but I needed to get it off my chest!
