So I know I am only 36 weeks pregnant but I am so over being pregnant I dont know what to do. This is my thrid pregnancy and I feel like this last little bit is dragging on. Does anyone have any suggestions of things I can do to help these last few weeks go by?

I'm right there with you. I'm only a week ahead of you and everyone is just like oh its right around the corner when i have 3 weeks left it feels like ETERNITY. But I'm trying to be patient and just relax and let him come when he's ready. I play some games on fb. Try the candy saga game that keeps me occupied for a little while. I watch movies and I sleep when I can then I go to work. In between all that I still feel like time is dragging lol But just try to play some games on fb and watch some movies. I know it sucks but it will be here SOON.

Ive tried everything I went for like 4-5 days and did nothing but clean, ive tried finding little projects around that house and thats not doing it either. I have two children that are both in school so for the most part I stay home all day unless i have a doctors appointment or I need to make a grocery store run. A girlfriend of mine has two small children one is almost 2 and the other is 4 months so I try to hang out with her to help pass time and get me back into the swing of having a baby around. I am to the point all I want to do is sit around and cry I am just tired of being pregnant this go around and with everything that has happend during this pregnancy I dont think it helps at all.

Thats good you get to hang out with your friend. I know having kids in school isn't easy either considering they're gone all day and then when they get home its homework time. There is only so much you can do around the house, trust me I know. I try to clean but it just hurts to bend or do anything, my stomach is so big and in the way now, it sucks :( If it makes you feel any better I cried yesterday when i had to go to work because I'm just so tired and miserable. I feel so big because nothing fits anymore, I cant even fit my maternity clothes anymore. i have to squeeze into what I can because to me its kinda pointless to spend that much money on a pair of pants when we're almost at the finish line :/ you should get a journal or something and write baby little letters for when they get older. Every day write down how your feeling or what you daydream of doing with LO. That should pass some time for you?

I am also at the point where my maternity clothes dont fit anymore, my pants are fine it is my shirts that seem to be shrinking (lol). I have only gained eight pounds but I feel like Ive gained about eighty. Everytime I have been pregnant I have only gained weight in my stomach which I am not complaning about. I lost about 10 pounds in the beginning of my pregnancy, I didnt know I was pregnant till I was about 2 1/2 months. The whole month before I found out I was pregnant I was staying at the hospital with my mom and her boyfriend (the man I consider my dad) and I didnt notice anything different. First night back home after he died I told my husband I thought I was pregnant and sure enough. From Thanksgiving to Christmas I didnt gain any weight, I got excited because I had finally gained four pounds after christmas. Now Im back to losing weight, some say that happens close to labor but I am very skeptical. How has your pregnancy been so far? This is your first right?

Yes this is my first and Ive gained almsot 50 pounds. I'm all stomach though, I don't get swelling I haven't gotten fat in the face or hands or nothing. Just my stomach, although its HUGE a lot of people say that its a good thing lol. My maternity pants dont really fit and I think all my shirts shrunk on me when I washed them lol. I like to keep telling myself that once I hit 38 weeks it will go by faster but I dont know if thats true :/ Its almost the half of the month and we got through this so we'll be able to get through the next 15 days. Just keep your head up mama
