View Full Version : Becoming miserable.
06-09-2008, 09:38 PM
I am at 37 weeks, exactly 3 weeks from my due date..and honestly, I am becoming so miserable. I feel miserable, I am tired, I have god-awful heartburn, everything is just sucking. I had a "scare" the other night, I thought my water had broken, and when I found out that it wasn't happening, I was so disappointed. My husband was so relieved and made me feel bad for being let down. Anybody else have this happen? And--how do I get over the blues over the next few weeks?

Your only three weeks away just calm down and get lots of rest, i'm carrying my first so i don't know how it feels to be that close but all i can say is just be calm and get lots of rest if your not working of course (i hope your not).

I was in KB Toys when I thought my water broke. But nope. Had to go home and wait. Than I thought it happened again when I woke up. But nope. Had to go home and wait. Than I thought that I was going in labor and went to the hospital. But nope. See the pattern? It's okay to have thought you were going into labor and your not. And it will happen soon. Kick back and relax. Enjoy these last few weeks (as much as you can).

It doesn't bother me that I thought that I was, I am just really...not..enjoying the last bit of my pregnancy. Everyone says to enjoy it, and it's pretty hard. My body just feels as though it is completely tired of doing this. Like..I want to just move on to the next phase and get me old body back.

I completely understand. I did not sleep for a week straight and the doctor gave me a sleep aide. Maybe you can ask your doctor for a prescription. I also used the excercise ball during the end of my pregnancy. I would sit on it and roll my hips or stretch out my back. It helped. My dh was also generous with massages. Baths helped alot although I got stuck in the tub once and it took a minute of screaming for dh to come to my rescue. Some light yoga stretches and poses help. They help stretch out your back and relax you. Maybe some walks will do you good. Enjoy time getting the baby's nursery ready. Time flies by when you're folding onesies. Write in a baby journal.
But I'll tell you what won't work: yelling at either your belly or dh to remove the baby.
Towards the end, try some natural induction methods: sex, spicy foods, casrol oil, primrose, walking
