So incredibly frustrated! (long, sorry)

I'm 35 weeks pregnant, and it seems like #3 could join us any day now. I've had regular contractions, and I just don't feel "right" if that makes any sense. I don't know if I'm dilated or effaced, but will be getting checked on Wednesday - I preferred not to get checked at all until labor, but these contractions have freaked me out.

Anyway, we barring any pre-term labor, we have anywhere from 2-7 weeks before #3 is due to join us. And we are NOT ready! We have all the baby stuff we need... but it's still in the attic (except for the diapers and clothes). I need DH to get up there and get it all down, and he just hasn't had time. I'd do it myself, but the attic ladder is really steep and my balance is awful nowadays. We still need to buy DS2 a Radian... that's the only way we'll be able to fit three car seats in the back of our Kia Sorento. DH keeps putting that off, saying we'll do it "eventually." What does that mean?! I want it done now, so I can go ahead and put #3's seat in there. We still need to move DS1 and DS2 into the same room, but can't do that until we put new flooring down in DS1's bedroom... until we do that, I can't put any of #3's clothes/diapers/etc in the nursery (the nursery is DS2's room right now), so it's all just sitting in laundry baskets in my room (which is driving me nuts!). #3 will be sleeping in our room, but I would at least like to have his things put up, KWIM?



I'm just so frustrated... I feel like I've done everything I can to get ready for this baby, and DH keeps putting everything off. I really feel like #3 will arrive early, and DH is acting like we still have months to go. I wish I could hire a second husband to help me get through this nesting phase!

Hugs. I know sometimes it is just hard when you just want things in their place, just so you do not have to think about it anymore. Thinking is draining work. :O)

Thanks mamas! It felt better to vent, LOL. I feel bad for venting to DH, because I know he's busy... I just wish he would make getting all this stuff done a priority, you know? I'm already a little scared of the idea of having three kids... I would feel better if my house was at least in order .

Tell him why you are in a hurry! Men are so thick headed sometimes! Tell him you think lo is in a hurry 2 get here and may be here in the next few weeks. And you need to get it done for your sanity. Maybe he will listen.
And listen to your nesting! With dd1 I was 30 weeks pg and having major nesting, running around cleaning. I had a huge scene yelling at dh b/c he was playing video games and not helping me. Then I had my dd at 31 weeks. Dh was like "now I know why you were so upset". hopefully you can make it a few more weeks so you will be term.

OP, I'm all for calm communication but if DH isn't "getting it" then maybe it's time for a pregnant lady freak out...KWIM? Sometimes guys I think get so used to tuning us out that and just hearing part of what we say that they can't tell the difference between normal "nagging"(sorry for lack of a better word) and urgent nagging like this baby is coming soon and you better get off your hump and help me get the house ready!!! Good luck mama. I hope LO stays put a few more weeks and DH gets his booty in gear

I've heard that this kind of frantic nesting can mean impending labor. I hope it doesn't in my case, but I'm going to show your post to DH. Maybe that will light a fire under his booty. LOL!

I could totally see me throwing a fit like that right now. I'm miserable, and tired of stuff not getting done. I'm showing DH this post, too!

It's nice to know I'm not just being the nagging wife!
