come sit and complain with me.

I am 32+4 and fed up. everywhere hurts. I can't get comfy and to top it off today I have started getting crampy pains and feeling sick.

what's ailing you?

PterodactylTeaParty Mon 28-Oct-13 12:50:29

22+1 and still sodding sick. The drugs help enough that I can eat and drink again, at least, but ugh it is so miserable feeling like this all the time. The second-trimester glow is an evil lie.

BookWormGirl Mon 28-Oct-13 12:50:42

I'm tired....so very tired.
And my back aches.
And I have a million things to do at work before I finish for mat leave.
And I feel rubbish for taking everything out on my poor DH.

Sorry - not normally one to complain / grumble - I've just had a bad nights sleep and un-productive morning at work.

Frecklesandspecs Mon 28-Oct-13 15:01:41

I'm due tomorrow and not had any twinges. I'm fed up. I feel like a blubberybloo and yesterday when I went out for a walk I vowed I would not be doing that again until after the baby is born.
plus the other two are driving me nuts!

Am 25+2, and totally agree 2nd trimester glow is a crock of shite!
I look like warmed up dog poo, am knackered constantly, my groin and pelvis feels like they're cracking into small pieces and I have the most painful trapped wind and heartburn.
DD2 is only 15 months and a little whirlwind too.
I need this baby out and I still have so long to go ::sob::

Inglori0us Mon 28-Oct-13 15:17:46

I'm 16 weeks and this pregnancy feel like a life sentence. Still sick, knackered, hip pain, some kind of (as yet pinpointed exactly) kidney problem and a 19 m

Inglori0us Mon 28-Oct-13 15:18:20

Sorry. Fat finger. A 19 month old to lo

Inglori0us Mon 28-Oct-13 15:19:48

Sorry. Fat fingers.
A 19 month old to look after.
Fed up, DH away with work all week, miss wine, paracetamol is shit and I'm generally in a foul mood.

Kerfuffled Mon 28-Oct-13 15:21:46

33 weeks today. Sore back, exhausted and 3yo DD. Constipation, indigestion and piles. Everyone and everything is pissing me off. Everyone I know irritates me. angry

PumpkinPie2013 Mon 28-Oct-13 15:51:08

36 weeks tomorrow and totally fed up now! angry sad

I have heartburn, get random shooting pains in my groin, my back aches and baby has kicked one of my ribs so hard it's bruised and really painful sad

Praying baby engages soon to relieve pressure on my rib.

Everything/everybody is annoying me greatly and the next person to ask if I've decided what we're doing for Xmas may suffer pain angry it's my first baby and will be between 2 and 4 weeks old at Xmas - I don't know how we'll feel!

Rant over - keeping focused on my baby arriving in a matter of weeks now smile

ladymalfoy Mon 28-Oct-13 15:58:22

Tired. Just arrived in the Lakes for our Babymoon and booked a facial at the hotel. Stopped loads on the way for comfort breaks and just managed to wiggle off the hip ache.
Got a week off now but really had enough of work. Got to wait til the end of term to start mat leave but don't think I can last that long. I'll stop now otherwise the list will be immense.

PinkParsnips Mon 28-Oct-13 16:03:38

38+1 today.

I've got an awful pain under my shoulder blade
Painful legs / hips / bum
Painful jaw / fingers?!
Terrible painful constipation. Spent an hour in the toilet last night in agony.

And absolutely no sign of baby! No BH, no twinges, no feeling of baby moving down / engaging -nothing.

Fed. Up!
Lay in bed at 3am this morning and just cried. Am feeling a little better today though!!

WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 16:05:27

I just made chocolate brownies to try and make myself feel better and take my mind off the fact I feel like shit.

Sorry you lot are also feeling like crap. Hope having a rant has helped. People don't get how hard pregnancy is unless they have been through it and even then they seem to forget after they have had their baby.

I never found my glow either. DP said to me that if you cover up my face I look the picture of the perfectly healthy pregnant woman. How nice of him hmm

LuckySocks13 Mon 28-Oct-13 16:07:24

36.3 today. Feeling meh! Don't want to complain bit am suffering big time now and got DS aged 3 to entertain!

YoniMitchell Mon 28-Oct-13 16:10:59

<lets out sigh of relief>

I think I've just found my spiritual home!

29+1 and feeling like utter shite but can't moan to anyone else. Back is aching like a bastard, hips keeping me awake all night, feeling fat, not just pg, have builders in so the house is like a fucking bomb site and everything is covered in dust. Plus they're MAKING NOISE so I can't even watch crap on telly.

I feel a bit better now. Thank you whisper for starting this thread!

YoniMitchell Mon 28-Oct-13 16:13:36

You're right whisper on the not knowing what it's like until you've been here. I used to be all hmm about preggers women moaning about it, now I totally get it!

Does you DH still have his testicles for that comment?! wink

thedizzy1 Mon 28-Oct-13 16:33:11

This is all making me feel so much better!! Im sorry everyone's suffering, but I am beyond fed up .
I wake up at least 10 times a night to wee or because of hideous indigestion and heartburn which gaviscon no longer even makes a dent in. I literally am sleep-walking around.
I have a 17 month old dd , and while she is wonderful in every way there is no rest. At all. I would give up lots of good stuff to just have a couple of days not feeling guilry about my lack of energy and inability to run round being fun all day.
I have a neurological condition that means pregnancy is expecially high risk. With my ds 9 years ago I had a series of brain stem strokes, and while I had only one with my dd it still wasnt that fun. I am constantly dizzy, or weak etc as all the symptoms from my brain surgery are worse when I an upduffed.
I was bought up in care and while pregnant always feel sad for the family, especially mum, that so many people seem to have supporting them.
Im 31+something and am due a c section the week before Christmas. I have, literally a million things to do.
Sorry, that was v long and self pitying. Hormones and tiredness!

thedizzy1 Mon 28-Oct-13 16:35:32

*I mean for my lack of family.
<gives up to go and forage for food>

Slongette Mon 28-Oct-13 16:36:36

38 weeks today.....

Never got the 'glow' but had sweaty red face instead..... Even today had to stand in front of a fan to stop my moisturiser running off my face after my shower this morning - sweating like a bloody pig.

EVERYTHING gives me fricking heartburn - I've taken to swigging straight out of a giant bottle of gaviscon which goes everywhere with me....

To top it all off we're in the process of renovating a cottage. We are living with my parents - should have been in by now but been let down by a succession of tradesmen so have lost the race of moving in before the baby comes. Had an almighty row with my mother this morning as her opinion is the only opinion - about everything from what changing bag to get to my bathroom tiles.

Comfort ate a quarter pounder with cheese and large fries today (First crap food I've eaten all pregnancy) Now have the most powerful heartburn ever - trusty gaviscon has not even taken the edge off.

Want baby out now - beyond grumpy!

Bambamb Mon 28-Oct-13 16:39:09

37+2 and glad I'm not alone.
Shattered due to awful sleeps for months. Crampy swollen legs and feet.
Piles.
Thrush I cannot clear.
Back ache.
Sore hips in the extreme.
Trying to keep my 4 year old occupied for half term when I can't walk more than about 25m without needing to sit down. And it's only Monday!

Good luck everyone!

Bambamb Mon 28-Oct-13 16:39:49

Oh and heartburn too. Awful!

WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 16:42:42
Pinkbell123 Mon 28-Oct-13 16:42:47

I have a COLD! And I look like a walrus at only 25 weeks hmm

Norfolknway Mon 28-Oct-13 16:47:18

My kind of thread!!

39 weeks today - totally shattered.
DD (2.5) have managed to walk to the shops and back and watch loads of tv the shame beans on toast for dinner more shame and DH is bringing in a Dominos for us when he finishes work a tiny bit more shame

WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 16:47:24

oh no. Colds suck especially when you're pregnant and can't take anything to help them.
