    Default Unsettled and over it!

    Girls, obviously we all get unsettled and feel 'over it' as our due dates near... I have noticed that I have developed strange last minute food cravings and I am totally unsettled....So unsettled that I have had to send my darling partner out to fetch the following;
    a) Watermelon (lots of it please)
    b) Iced Coffee or fruit juice - either will do
    c) Allens Lollies - I am thinking strawberrys and cream ones would go down a treat
    d) Cadbury Chocolate - either plain or fruit and nut.


    Maybe this is simply comfort eating given that I hit 40wks today and I am totally 'over it' given that I have now had 2 false starts and i now feel a little miffed by the fact that I am going to go past my due date when everyone thought that I would go early for sure...



    Having said that I am interested to know if anyone has felt similar during the last days of pregnancy?

    I feel horrible. I know that I am being a total b!tch and I can't seem to snap out of this foul mood... it is not so much that it is a foul mood...it is just so hard to describe, I feel totally unconnected and spaced out. I think I could literally just stare at a wall for hours on end at the moment.

    Someone shed a little light on this for me PLEASE!

    Maybe your coming close to labour starting?
    Some people do feel a bit out of it just before.
    I hope so. Good luck!

    I was told by everyone (including strangers on the street, bizarrely enough)that I was going to go early with my first pregnancy because I was so big and bubs engaged early. Yeah, right!! Almost two weeks over and was induced as he was not interested in the slightest. I was so over it by then.

    Saying that, I did feel spacey and out of it for a couple of days before I was induced. Didn't have the food cravings but ate whatever was not nailed down or hidden.

    Good luck!!

    I have been feeling the exact same way for the last two days. I am now 41 weeks and still have another 4 to 5 days to go if bub hangs in.
    I went into labour at 36 weeks and after 5 days all stopped so i can totally understand what you mean. we thought our boy would be early but nope he has managed to defiy gravity and stay put.

    I have had a cheese and macaroni thing and honey joys. i cant make enough of them.

    wont be long now till your bubs is here
