*super anxious*

ive got 2.5 weeks til my baby girl is supposed to make her arrival (key word: supposed) & the anxiousness is gettin worse! i kinda figured it would the closer to due date i got, but the nesting has become a lil more obsessive & i find myself unable to sit still & take it easy! needless to say im driving my hubby crazy, esp since this is the time i should be taking it easy! my brother in law's gf delivered her baby last tuesday & since that day...i catch myself wishin that was me! im jus ready!! was 1cm @ my last dr appt (last monday) so im hoping today's dr appt will bring some promising news!! anyone else dealing w/this super anxious feeling??

  • oh yeah that's really normal in the last few weeks. but remember, how dilated you are doesn't really predict when you will have your baby. if you are 3 cm, you still could go to 42 weeks, or a little beyond that. gl!!!!!

    (btw, i'm 32 weeks and already feeling anxious and i could have 10 weeks left. haha)
