That's so great that you're doing so well at 34 weeks!
I'm pretty sure I felt kind of like that in my last pregnancy. I only went 36w with the twins, so past that in a subsequent pregnancy... I just kept telling everyone that the baby could come any day now and it would be just fine!! Even at 37w, I got easily upset at people saying the baby needed to wait another 2 weeks (and he did). It was very silly looking back, but I was huge and uncomfortable and ready to be done. a little comic relief for you: I remember the Friday I came home from the OB (I was going to be 39 weeks on Sunday) and had been told I was still sitting on 1.5cm and 75% effaced... I cried and cried! And then I walked around and around my tiny backyard about 50 times just trying to do something to make the baby come out. I know I looked crazy.

Don't worry, mama, you won't be pregnant forever! It won't be long at all now, even thought it seems that way. Mark off the days or weeks on your calendar - something visual to keep you focused!

Feeling out of control!

Postby Jax2011 » Tue Jun 05, 2012 07:39 pm

So I am now 34 weeks... NEVER thought I would make it this far much less NOT have any signs of pre-e. With my first son I was diagnoised at 29 weeks and delievered at 30 and I have been waiting for something to pop up since 20 weeks but nothing has. So now with my doctor expecting me to go to term I can not wrap my brain around my body being able to carry this baby any futher. I feel like I am out of control of my life and the uncertanity of knowing when this baby will come and under what circumstances make me crazy! So crazy I have changed my older son's peditrician and preschool recnently. I was also put on "home rest" and was given the chance to work from home in order to help keep my bps down (130's/80's). I just cant get the hang of relaxing, Im constantly nesting and changing things around the house (painting, rearranging fruniture, etc.) I am just trying to regain some type of control in my life! Anyone else feel like this?
