My baby is due in 4 weeks, and i feel like nothing is done or ready. my mom keeps telling me she thinks i'm gonna go early and blah blah blah and its scarying me! i keep trying to clean my room to the best of my ability, but during the summer my allergies are so bad that it's hard because it'll get hard to breath due to the thickness of the air. i'm sure its fine for the baby but it doesn't feel good enough! nothing feels good enough anymore! i feel like everythings wrong and i didn't want to have a baby and feel like nothings done. now that i've gotten to my breaking point and i'm just really anxious and depressed and nervous, i can't get anything in order and i just want to sit there and mope, and thats what i find myself doingn when i'm not at work. did anyone else feel this way? i don't know how to overcome it and i told the doctor and she was telling me it's just normal and it'll happen to a lot of people howwww do i deal with this before he comes! ahhh!

I wouldn't stress out about things. Feeling overwhelmed like nothing is done is completely normal. That feeling like you are cleaning and nothing is clean enough is called nesting. Many mothers do it before their little buddles of joy come. I am close to my due date as well and I know about the anxious nervous feeling that you are going through. Just remember when your baby comes he is going to depend on you so you need to pull it together a little and not mope around. Do what you can right now for him, because when he comes your time is going to be very full. I know that you may be experiencing a time right now where you feel helpless but rely on your family and friends to talk to, and you will overcome it. I am 7000 miles away from my mom and I call her everyday and it makes me feel so much better. Talk to your mom about what you are feeling, what you are afraid of and anything else that is on your mind. And remember they know what they are talking about because they have been there and raised a child.

FYI: statistically, first born babies are generally late - not early. Your mom's feelings have no bearing on when your baby will come. Relax.
