The final countdown to birth is basically a crazy mix of emotions that all contradict one another. Here's what every woman thinks in the last weeks of pregnancy, as she waits to go into labor.
I can’t wait for this to be over. So done. SO DONE!
I don’t want this to be over. Pregnancy is such a special time. Sniff.
I'd better document this because it's going to be over soon. Proceeds to take a zillion bump selfies.
Oh crap. Am I ready? Washes baby clothes, obsessively organizes nursery, reorganizes hospital bag.
I am so uncomfortable. I can't do this anymore. My feet, ankles, calves, hips, back, sides, head all hurt.
I am going to have a real, live baby. OMG! Is this really happening?
This pregnancy flew by. It seems like just yesterday I found out I was having a baby! Now he's almost here.
I've been pregnant forever. Longest. Nine. Months. Ever.
I'll do anything to get this baby out. Cut me open, saw my head off, whatever. I want him out!!!
I'm terrified to give birth. What if I can't handle the pain? What if something goes wrong? I don't want to give birth.
Did the baby drop? Polls every friend and family member.
Am I leaking amniotic fluid? Or is this just discharge?
Googles "signs of labor" incessantly. Every day.
This is the last time I'll ever... have a date night out alone with my husband, get a pedicure, be alone with my other child... etc.
I'm starving. What can I eat?
I can't fit another bite of food into this gigantic belly. Ugh.
I'm huge. Seriously, people probably feel sorry for me.
How can a baby fit inside here? I'm not that big!
I can't wait to get my body back. Diet starts the day I give birth!
Ugh, who wants to have to lose all that weight? Such a drag. Wish I could just keep eating whatever I want.
I love this baby so much already. And I can't wait to hold him in my arms.
Am I going to love this baby? What if we don't bond right away?
I never want to be pregnant again. Ever.
I'm going to miss being pregnant. Maybe we should have another baby...
Was that a contraction? Is it happening?
Nope, still pregnant. I'll never go into labor. Going to be pregnant for the rest of my life.
STILL pregnant. Sigh.
Wait, my back hurts! My tummy is funny. Is this it? Just indigestion...
I'm so tired today. Maybe it's going to happen soon.
Never going to happen. I'll be the first woman to be pregnant for 52 weeks.
