    Default How did you feel days before labour started?I

    Hi , I'm 32 weeks with my third. My other two labours when I look back had me pretty emotional days prior to it starting , I felt I wanted to crawl into a cupboard and hide and sleep sleep sleep! I felt pretty anxious over silly little things and like no one understood me. I'm worried as I feeling this now. I'm snapping at my little kids and just my oldest pestering me about where a certain toy car is Has me with my head in my hands taking deep breaths! I cannot get off the couch or out of my Jim Jams and there is so much to do. In 4 weeks we move into a new home.... I need to start packing but my pelvis feels like its about to snap!
    Did you have an early labour 33 weeks + , what happens? or maybe I'm overwhelmed as we are moving when I'm 36 weeks!! Arrgghhh !

    sorry you're feeling this way, moving is stressful at the best of times.

    I felt very calm and ready. The day before I went into hospital (DS was induced at 38+3 after I was in hospital for 24 hours due to bleeding) I was bored! I spent a lot of time talking to DS and telling him that we were ready.

    I hope you feel better soon and manage to move into your new home with plenty of time to spare before bub arrives.

    Thanks juf84 !! I think it must be that i have so much to do before we move and I feel like a whale!!! arggghh!! Im just hoping the baby stays in the cooker until at least 38 to 39 week as it would be so stressful to have an early baby....... but this time im quite unfit and mentally lazy.......... so packing the house up is something i could do without!! ha ha ha thanks for your reply, xx

    I feel for you, that must be horrible to have all the stress you have.
    But it's totally normal I was so anxious and so emotional towards the end of my pregnancy. I was in tears about everything and I didn't move out of my bed until I gave birth.

    Just remember to try and take it easy try not to stress and relax when possible. Z

    Had to reply as right now I'm 34wks and moving this weekend!
    The last couple of weeks have been hell!
    I have a 1 yr old and every time I pack something she pulls it out etc etc etc.

    It has only been in the last week that I have calmed down and actually been able to come to grips with what I have to do.

    Everyone will tell you the usual "relax" "don't stress"
    But they might as well be speaking jibberish :/

    On the moving front i recommend to not do anything for a day or two.
    Just concentrate on something else for those couple of days. Clear your head and come back to it all when you start to feel better.
    If your worried about early labour, spend the next couple of days dealing with that, without thinking about moving.

    Hope that all makes sense, trying to type and entertain my dd who's discovered the box of pots and pans lol
