wow this last bit is going by slow

Im now 38 weeks 1 day, who knew I would still be here...  I feel like ever since I hit 37 weeks, time has been going by so slow.....  I know I only have 14 days until my due date so its going to happen soon regardless of if I go in early or not.. But ever since I had that episode with early labor then stopped progressing, days just climb by...

Not having contractions anymore so I dont think it will be soon... im kind of excited to touchbase with my doctor tomorrow for the first time since all the stuff went down last week see what she says..

Im just trying to go about my business like normal.. the first couple days after, I was walking for like hours, but i figure there is no point to do that.. I still try to go for one small walk a day but the long walks got exhausting and really they only got me so far..

Im really excited to meet my little one, and it is hard ot believe there is only 14 days because I remember anxiously waiting the 100 day mark!

I have 15 days left and I have to agree with everyone. It is going by super slow. I keep asking my husband what day it is because it feels like the time it takes to get through one day is the same as 3 days. Crossing my fingers she comes early.

Looks like were all feeling the same way, thought my son would be here by now but hes stubborn like his father.  Wish everyone the best of luck and hopefully these last few days speed up for all of us.

I have 3 days left until my due date and I am also getting super anxious. I also tried the walking thing a couple of days ago and it did nothing for me but make my feet swell up so I'm done with that. I just have to accept the fact that it will happen when she's ready. The waiting is just getting to me especially being so close.

i know exactly what you're going through. i can't wait to meet my little one too! luckily for me, i only have a week to go. but yes, it sure seems like it's taking a long time. i guess i should really enjoy this last week before the baby arrives. we're all so close. almost there. :)

I couldn't agree more, I have 18 days 'til my due date.  I hate waiting this last few weeks.  I'm very surprised you're still around though with the pre-term labor you had.

Here's hoping we can meet our little ones soon!!
