I'm 39 weeks today and sooooooo ready for our baby girl to arrive. This is our second bub, DS came early at 37 weeks and it was an easy pregnancy with a winter arrival.
This time round I have been uncomfortable since about 30 weeks, it's stinking hot and my BH contractions have been terribly frequent and painful.
Have tried so many things to start labour, spicy food, long walks, trampoline, even sex! Nothing is working, seems our little girl is sticking it out till the last minute.
Yesterday afternoon was spent in hospital as my blood pressure had escalated and I had protein present in my urine. They were concerned about pre-eclampsia, however the tests all come back clear so we were allowed to go home.
Not before being poked and prodded with needles all day though
They even hooked me up to a drip because I was dehydrated due to the extreme heat we're having.
Anyway, just having a moan and hoping for that first contraction to start any moment now. Fingers crossed today's the day (although I've been saying that for 3 weeks now lol).

Anyone else over being pregnant?

* Puts hand up*.
40w3d. At first I was just over it because I wanted to meet my baby, now I'm just uncomfortable and can't get any decent sleep what so ever. Get little cramps and BH here and there but nothing that's consistent or hasn't been going on for weeks.
I also tried spicy food, DTD etc and none of that had worked so I give up and I'll just sit here and wait lol.
Sorry that you had to be poked and prodded! Hopefully you feel abit better now after having some fluids? It's been so hot!

I wasn't actually feeling bad yesterday, they only put me on the fluid drip be because my urine showed I was dehydrated. My blood pressure has been excellent my entire pregnancy, so not sure why it was up so much yesterday. They checked it heaps of times and it was always around the 140/95 mark which is apparently quite high. I'm am drinking heaps of water today, just in case.
