As the title suggests, I'm in the other end of the tww! Waiting for bub to arrive. I'm eager to meet my bundle of joy but babies come when babies want to. So what are you doing to keep your mind off the waiting or have done?
I'm currently 39 weeks.

The wait...... How do you take your mind off the inevitable?

I feel your pain! I'm currently 37+4 and so ready to meet this baby. I'm trying to just enjoy my time with DS (21 months) as much as possible. But it's not really taking my mind off the waiting! Hope you don't have too much longer.

I spent as much time as I could with ex (was dp) and enjoyed catching up on tv shows. I was induced so had the date rather than waiting for bub though lol

I focused on working on my house and gardens. There is a lot that needs doing still but it was a good way to distract myself and kept me active.

Organised to catch up with friends- I'd meet them on their lunch breaks. I thought that the more plans I made , the more likely bub would be to hurry up and come so I wouldn't be able to make them!

Yep, i made a number of plans for up to 42 weeks. Fave restaurant, movies, park trip with the toddler, massage, catch up with friends, go for a swim....
Have things planned ahead. You won't mind if you have to cancel them, but you will enjoy the distraction if baby is born a bit later.
