I am officially 2 days past my due date now, but for the last month of this pregnancy I have been slowly going more and more crazy!! I am SO ready to have this baby! I am so uncomfortable and my body just doesn't feel like it belongs to me anymore. Every other night when we go to sleep, I sleep okay for about 2 hours then wake up feeling like an elephant is sitting on my chest. I can't breathe, so I get up to catch my breath, then of course I have to go to the bathroom during this time, then I try my hardest to get into another comfortable position to go back to sleep and it just doesn't work! My poor husband has had to deal with so much, but I would have jumped off a cliff long before now if it weren't for him!
Because this last month of my pregnancy has been so hard on me, it's really made me feel like a horrible person because I wanted this baby so badly and now getting through the last of it before he actually comes is driving me crazy. I know it's just stress, especially since this is my first pregnancy, and I am really not horrible and it doesn't mean I'm going to be a bad mom; I am just ready to have him out of me now!
It really doesn't help that 3 of my friends who were due around the same time I was (actually one having the exact same due date as myself) have all delivered their babies now and I am still pregnant and miserable. I try to keep my spirits up by jokingly saying we "saved the best for last", but I am still just going crazy waiting for my turn to come. My doctor said we'd wait another week after my last appointment to see if I go into labor on my own before we'd discuss inducing, and that appointment is tomorrow. If I can just hold on until then I'll be okay and we'll finally begin a process that delivers our son!
Sorry this was a long rant but I needed to vent! Has anyone else gone crazy like this in their 3rd trimester or are you going crazy now?? Please let me know I'm not the only one!
