Hi all,

Ooh I'm glad the achey thighs thing isn't just me. Though am sorry you have it, of course! I am 36weeks and this week turned into a duck. It's just frustrating / embarrassing because I otherwise feel able to move til I move a certain way and OUCH.

I reckon it's normal. I hope.

Baby dropped over the weekend and I am now waddling like a constipated duck smile. Am 37 weeks and both of my other dc find it hilarious that mummy has turned into a slow coach, and don't even ask about how ladylike I look whilst getting in and out of the car!!!!
