Time is going by so slow!

I feel like these past 4 days have gone by so slow! They feel like months rather then days! I am sure it's cus this is our birth month but it's killing me! I just want to cry with how slow the day feels! I'm getting extremely anxious and I have so much going on this month you would think slow days would be a blessing but it's not! I want to just fall asleep and be woken up when she's ready to come.

How are you ladies handling this month? Is it going by slow

I'm due on the 9th and I swear it's like everyday is a century long :( I try to stay busy. I play games on my computer, I try to beat the old high scores and I know I am bugging the crap out of my fiance everytime I beat his high score lol. I even cleaned yesterday. I got down on the floor and cleaned out from underneath the bed (what I could reach anyway), but then I got stuck and couldn't pull myself back up, so I spent some lovely time with the floor yesterday lol.

Lol oh no being stuck *****! I took a shower and sat down tryin to relax and when I went to get up I couldn't I thought I was going to have to have my husband knock down the door to get me! That's a way to pass Time I suppose getting stuck in horrible positions! Lol at least u have a goal date! I have no actual day to look forward to not even my due date cus that makes me want to have a panic attack cus we move a few days before my due date! I lost my mucus plug and I'm dialated so I'm hoping that means any day now I am so anxious!

It's funny - I'm actually having the opposite experience! I start each day with a list of things to get done and the next thing I know, I've done only half of the things and the day is over!

Are you ladies on mat leave already? I swear the days are going faster since I'm trying to stick it out as long at work as possible. It's not only the time off, but also that I'm a teacher and leaving meaningful sub plans that someone else can actually grade, etc is hard for me.

This is horrible.. I'll be 37 wks tomorrow started dilating at 35w4d but still no baby! Mostly because I'm trying to wait til he's full term but I'm so miserable and wanting to cry all the time because this is taking forever!!! I'm glad to know I'm not alone in this situation, as I'm sure you ladies are too.. Lol I wish I was able to work longer than I was but its kinda hard to do 2 hr deep tissue massages on big hairy men everyday! Lol sounds gross now! Anyway I guess we should just be happy that our munchkins will be here THIS month and the time is actually cooing by faster than we are measuring it!

Ive been having anxiety attacks every night! I can't sleep at night I can feel my heart beat rise and If I do gal asleep around 4 am I wake up with cold sweats! I feel like I'm running out of time! I have a dr apr tomro I will be 37 weeks tomro too, well I guess today since its 106am right now! The reason I feel like I'm running out of time is because I NEED to have this baby by the 10th! We move on the 24th across country my husband is in the military and we have no choice I can't stay here I have no friends or family and a 2 n 4 ye old n our lease is up! So I have no where to stay here! My family is in Chicago no way I can make it there or them here in time! Not only that but the 20th my husband has to leave for 3 days 5 hrs away to "check out" of this command! What happenda if I go into labor when he's gone? Does n e one know what would happen to my kids if I go into labor? Not only all the craziness of above but If I have the baby by the 10 it gives me just enough time to get her two week shots the day we leave here so she won't be behind on them and I have to put her on our insurance before the 21st or she won't have insurance until July 1st! Which means no 2 week shots an no one month shots at Lear not on time putting her behind on all her shots! I'm going nuts! I've been walking having sex using primrose oil bouncing on that stupid yoga ball til It makes me dizzy I throw up and she is staying put! I wish my dr would help me out and induce me but she's a 39 week nazi and I have no clue what's going to happen! This so horrible I'm so stressed out I wish I was at a military hospital cus they are more sympathetic to this kid of stuff moves and deployments! Civilians just think the military will understand or just not care about what we are going through!

I see why youre so stressed! My dr won't induce me til 39wks.. I've been trying to have sex but my husband seems to be afraid to all of a sudden since thats the reason I started to  dilate in the first place! I'm afraid to walk because some idiot has kidnapped a lady and her kids in my city so I'm stuck with anything I can do inside the housewhile my husband is at work! Oh yeah I hear that semen softens the cervix and playing with your nipples helps get contractions started.. Ive been trying that but its not getting me anywhere so far.. Maybe you can do that. Oh also wall squats.. It's so stressful! I want to just go to the hospital and walk around til I go into labor!

I'm not sure what would happen if your husband isn't there with you.. Im sure the kids could ride to the hospital in the ambulance with you..I really hope it  works out well.. Talk to your baby! Everytime I tell my son to come ob out he starts pushing down and I have contractions!

Oh I know that feeling o being afraid to walk around when I was pregnant with my first I lived in Virginia and at the time there was someone kidnapping pregnant women and cutting them open leaving them dead and stealing the baby! So scary!!! And I went to my dr today that b word (lol) told me that they would take my kids into temp custody! Child services would be called :( my dr apt this morning went really bad! My dr went from a 39week nazi to a 40 week nazi cus to her full term is 40 not 37 and told me of I tried to naturally induce this baby (sex or walking) my baby can be born dead... Yes dead she said dead! What a thing to say to a pregnant mom whose already freaking out with all the above stuff I told u! Can't wait til we are both announcing our babies on here :)

Wooooooow! Omg that is crazy you should've changed your dr.. that lady is really rude!!! Something should be done about her.. And I dont think the hospital would call child services on you because of that.. She is just evil! the crazy kidnappers are very scary I didnt even tell strangers I was pregnant before I started showing..  Which was up until like 7.5 months.. (with clothes on) lol Of course I can't hide this belly now at 37 weeks! So I stay home unless I'm with my husband or one of his sisters since my family is out of state too =( I hope you get to deliver sooner and without that crazy dr though.. I have 2 wks left and I really hope he comes TODAY.. I'm soooo tired of carrying..

I can't change drs now that I am so far along! She delivered my second baby but of course these concerns weren't an issue with my second cus I wasn't in the middle of a move. She was a great dr then and until this point when it can down to talk about a plan since im still pregnant! She didn't want to talk about it before since I normally go early! And I read online that social services are called when a mom is in labor and she has nobody to call the nurses are not responsible and I have to focus on labor not my 2 n 4 yr old. Or what would happen if I needed an emergency c section? Aperently social services would be there to help by taking them til I got out! I wouldn't let this happen I'd ask the girl in the front office to take them before a foster home she's the only person I know and I don't know her all to well but at least it's better then foster care! Hopefully I have this baby soon n won't worry about that! N it would be pretty cool of we did have our babies on the same day we are due on the same day! :))
