Sad its almost over Stasha1 2 kids; Michigan 73 posts

I will be 40 weeks on Wednesday. I am so excited to finally be able to hold my little guy in my arms and love on him but I'm so sad this pregnancy is almost over! I find myself crying over it frequently. I see on here that most people 30 weeks + are wanting to be "done being pregnant" Am I crazy for not wanting it to be over? All of my friends say I bet you are so happy you are about to pop or almost done mama, are you excited? I am excited but no I'm not ready to feel empty. Listen this pregnancy has been no picnic, I have been through all of the aches and pains, sciatica and even found out a few days ago that I have gallbladder disease but I just do not want it to end. The feeling of a human being growing inside of me is the greatest feeling I have ever experienced, feeling him kick and seeing him roll around is epic! I know I must sound like a nut...sorry!

I was the same way. I said if I could have taken him out to just hold him one or two times and put him back in for another ten weeks I would have. But I was tired of all the kidney problems that the pregnancy gave me :(

Thank you! My husband just doesn't get it, he keeps saying why are you so sad, you get to actually hold him soon. I tell him I am holding him and its just an "us" thing. Like my special time with him that nobody else gets to experience. I guess I just want to be selfish. LMAO :D

If my OB had her way I would have been induced on the 17th
I fought that so hard! But I do love the look on people's faces now when they ask me when I'm due "oh like a week ago" lol
