Post subject: 39+4 and so bored of waiting
I would post this is in the september mummies bit but I seem to be the only person on that forum so I feel really alone and miserable.
I have no signs whatsoever of this baby coming any time soon, and I feel like it's such a waste of time being on maternity and having nothing to show for it. Wish my time was more productive like actually having the baby here.
Went over with my first and was induced 3 days over due to pre-ecclampsia - but luckily dont seem to have developed that this time, but it could mean that I am stuck like this for another 2 weeks
I just wanted to whinge really as I feel a bit down in the dumps - sorry for being such a misery guts!

Wait until you go 17 days overdue like I was I know its hard but try to enjoy every minute because I found that as soon as my bump was gone I was missing it again. What about planning days out to try and keep yourself busy? I used to do a lot of cleaning during the day because I knew I wouldn't have much time afterwards to keep the house tidy.

I know exactly how you feel, been off work since last tues (annual leave then maternity started this week) and am so ready for baby to be here now. I was even hoping that she had stayed breech so at least I would have had a date for a c-section to focus on! Now the thought that it could be another 4-5 weeks is awful!
I've been trying to pop out each day, even if it's just for an hour to see friends or get a few bits in the shops, also booked a hair appointment for next week to give me something to do.
Hope both our babies arrive very soon, xx
Ps the October mums is very quiet too... Where is everybody!??
Angel baby - due 08/07/12 xx

Ah glad I'm not the only one. I have SPD so going for a walk for something to do isn't worth the pain.
I'm also a massive lazy arse so the idea of cleaning makes me feel sick ha ha ha!!
Had the runs this morning and got very excited that it might be the start of something but I think it was simply wishful thinking.
Never mind. Just the thought of another two weeks is rotten - and yes I've been on mat leave since 5th sept do feels like a long time with nothing to do. Has to pop out at some point or another.

Put your feet up and relax :)you deserve some time to yourself as when the baby arrives you will be rushed off your feet! Have a nice bath or book yourself in a salon to have a little pamper or even better get your friends round to have a pamper night and some munchies. Ive just taken LO to school and come home to do the cleaning but on the plus side i can put my feet up all afternoon now and watch disney dvds with LO when she gets home! Take Care xx

Yeah that's what she said to me as well. I don't feel engaged so will probably be a waste.
I am resting A LOT ha ha. Think I have slept so much I will never be able to actually sleep again.
Never mind. Not much I can do about any of this. It's just frustrating and an anxious time.
