A little bitching at 36 weeks

Postby trying2beehopeful » Tue Oct 28, 2014 1:02 pm

Holy cow! 36 weeks and I’m tired, way more than I was during my 1s trimester. I planned on working all the way through, letting baby decide when I take my maternity leave but boy am I tempted to start now!

I’m sooo incredibly exhausted I can hardly concentrate at work, making silly mistakes. The girls at the office love to point out my “pregnancy brain “moments, how tired I look, and my swollen feet. I KNOW people! I know.
I look like crap and have been wearing the same 5 dresses for the past 3 weeks. I refuse to buy anymore maternity clothes.

Anytime I share my discomforts with my husband he tells me how beautiful I look and proceeds to seduce me into having sex. Yeah…big help buddy :roll: . I’m so over THAT too, I feel so large and heavy… I just can’t anymore. Last night was our farewell to sex for this pregnancy, and he didn’t even know it, LOL! Oh well.

I’m so ready for this baby. Anyone else feeling like poop right about now

Same. I was the happiest person alive when I went in with pain at 38w1d w/ my son and they told me they'd do the c-section that day. From 35 weeks on was horrible. I hope things get better though! Every pregnancy is different, but I've heard the end is pretty consistently a beast.

I got real tired from week 32 to 36....way more than during my first trimester and i was on vacation so can't blame work! Now i'm in my 38th week, on maternity leave and have had more boosts of energy. Enough that i have be checking off my to do list of things i want done before baby arrives (nesting maybe?) Anyways it feels great to have some energy back cause i seriously wondering how the hell i was to survive labor !! But now i'm ready ti get this show on the road and being brand new baby boy #2 home :)

@wakeup26 Yeah, I was talking to my husband last night, regardless of when baby arrives I'm taking my leave at 39 weeks, the drive alone to work and back is killing my back, it takes me up to an hour to get home with traffic! I just can't anymore.

That's a good idea, you have to be at least a little rested before baby comes ;) I'm from Quebec and we have a great maternity and parental leave program, so starting my leave 4 weeks before my due date is no big deal..I'll still have 46 weeks with my little one before going back to work.

12 weeks is definitely not enough, but even our gvt is thinking of cutting in our program :( Fortunately, this is my second and last pregnancy but it sucks for all the futur families....

I only got six weeks after my son was born. I agree the USA has probably about the worst maternity/paternity leave set up.
