I want out

I have been laid low by life lately. This whole month has been busy with various events, and even the fun stuff leaves me utterly exhausted. A trip to the pumpkin patch and picnic with friends, an evening potluck with interesting people, a playgroup kid's birthday party, dinner out with Husband for our anniversary--everything is tiring to me now. I'm 36 weeks pregnant now, enormously fat, and I don't give a shit how dirty the house is, how much food I have prepared in the freezer, or what sort of labor I might be looking forward to. I want.this.baby.out.

Pregnancy is not for those of "advanced maternal age" like myself, apparently.

Hang in there! The last month is such a drag.

I just found out a friend who is 43 will be having a baby. It's her first so physically and mentally she's probably younger than those of us who have been through childbirth and reasoning with children.
Good luck.

But hang in there.....hugs!!

You poor thing! I remember that last month of pregnancy ALL too well, even though it was over a decade ago! I hope the month goes by quickly!

I know how you feel. I was so ready by then to get that baby out.

I agree with beth. I saw your picture on her site you are so NOT fat. You look so cute!!!

You can do it!

It sucks no matter what.

I can't wait to hear about it!

If it helps your pregnancy has flown by for me... okay, that probably didn't help. The last month is the longest! Hang in there (and boycott housework the rest of the month).
