If anyone else wants to join me moan please do haha smile

Fed of people telling me to 'sleep whilst i can' and that 'womens bodies are made for giving birth'. The two pieces of advice I constantly keep getting given from people who have either never been pregnant or gave birth years ago!!! Ahhhhhhhh! As if i dont realise i wont get much sleep with a newborn! I feel like telling them 'you trying having a full nights sleep at 36 weeks pregnant' or facing up to the fact YOU have to push a large watermelon sized baby out of my noon in about 4 weeks time!!!

....I feel better now! Ha smile xx

I literally messaged my friend this morning apologising for a rant on how crap I felt today!
Luckily I'm being induced on Sunday am 36 weeks pregnant with twin girls.
Everything hurts!!! My legs feel strained my back hurts my hips I click everywhere. I feel like my bodies breaking.
I feel so bad moaning about all this! But it's also so good to no ur not alone going through it x

Oh and sleep! Sleeps so over rated! Lol.
Up every 1-2 hours to waddle my way into the bathroom then try and get comfortable to go back to sleep for maybe another hour or two!
I don't understand the sleep while u can because u can't lol.
At least when our babies are here we may be having broken sleep but it will hopefully be comfortable sleep smile

I'm not trying to stealth boast but I am 34 weeks and still having excellent sleep, I think because of my dream genie pillow. It's brilliant. Haven't woken up once between 10 and 6 for week.

Trifleorbust Fri 28-Oct-16 10:28:43

*weeks

Trifleorbust we cannot be your friend with that kind of talk!! grin lol

Only joking, glad someone gets sleep, I do have my pillow and I definitely sleep better/longer with it, but it seems to keep me wedged in one position so when I do wake up I literally am in agony in my hips from not turning over! Can't win!

40+2 today! Come on baby!!

Trifleorbust Fri 28-Oct-16 10:53:42

Yes, it is fighting talk grin

I bet in three weeks I will be complaining as long and loudly as I can!

ChocolateChipMuffin2016 Fri 28-Oct-16 10:55:16

I'm 36 weeks and hear you on the sleep front! Go to bed tired, wake up tired. Wake up in the night; cannot sleep!!! What is that??!?
The thing that is driving me most insane at the moment is people who "know" the sex of our baby! We don't bloody know so I know how you think you know! Oh because of the bump shape, of course, why didn't I think of that!! BECAUSE IT'S A LOAD OF RUBBISH!!! Ergh! I don't mind people guessing, it's the people who are insistent! It's driving me mad! angry
And breathe....

TwinGirlsMCDA Fri 28-Oct-16 11:02:37

Fingers crossed not long for u now dlah.
I get what u mean about being persistent I feel like I'm going slightly insane as I have a friend who is very persistent she wants to 'steal' my twins when there born.. now I no I'm probably being hormonal but it's been said so many times it actually started upsetting me but I also feel so ridiculous because I no she's only trying to be nice and is a good friend of mine hmmconfused oh dear! X

35 weeks here, size of a house, sick to death of weeing all the time, SPD making me feel like I've been kicked in the crotch by a horse, DS (4) being really good lately tho so that's been great however I'm just generally fed up! Having a CS in 3 weeks, scared but can't wait.

katiegg Fri 28-Oct-16 11:22:08

35 weeks here and in need of a moan! sore back, sore hips, can't sleep and baby has made themselves a cosy little bed on my bladder meaning I need to do one of those 'trickle pees' every five minutes. I've also suffered from thrush repeatedly throughout this pregnancy and needed a thrombosed haemmarroid cut out a couple of weeks ago. All while trying to keep an energetic two year old entertained!

I do not enjoy being pregnant in the slightest and I get rage every time
someone describes it as 'wonderful' or 'magical'... angry

Rubberduck2 Fri 28-Oct-16 11:26:26

Yes!!!! I've found my people.

36 weeks today and currently in hospital with a heart beat that is going too fast. I only came for a usual run of the mill appointment with the consultant yesterday and the bloody car is still in the very expensive car park!

I'm tired, I'm always hungry but feel sick when I eat and I just want to sleep all the bloody time. I go breathless about 5 times a day due to an arse sticking in my ribs.

There are women around me in early labour. I'm not sure if I'm jealous or not!! One has her ENTIRE family here and is whimpering and crying every few seconds. She was only induced an hour ago and is getting short thrift from the midwives as I think they think she's over reacting a little bit. Her family refused to leave last night, they eventually left at midnight.

I hope I'm high maintenance when I come in!!

Not long now ladies - thank god!!

I'm 36wks tomorrow.

I'm bloody loving being pregnant, feel great, loads of energy abs never thought I could have kids (failed fertility treatment etc) so I'm really loving it.

BUT

What's with the comments like;

"Oh you look so well" (shouldn't I?!)
"Ooooh just you wait, you'll not know what's hit you!"
"You've got another thing coming" (it's not come yet ha ha!)
"You're doing so well"

I mean had nobody EVER in the whole world and history of pregnancy EVER had a happy positive experience?!

It makes me want to not see anyone and tell them anything as I feel I'm too happy lol

katiegg Fri 28-Oct-16 11:33:02

catmom congrats! I love hearing stories like yours! my first pregnancy was pretty easy, tiredness and nausea at the start but a breeze after that. And ds was quite an easy baby. So we thought it'd be no hassle doing it all again! Enjoy the next few weeks and enjoy your little baby when s/he arrives!

RuskBaby Fri 28-Oct-16 11:35:44

Hi all,
I'm having mixed emotions - generally anger to those with their wonderful comments but left alone I'm loving pregnancy (now). I've not even left the house yet but already had from a friend, when I told her I was awake for a 3 hour spell plus an additional 2 loo trips - oh it will be worse soon think yourself lucky! FFS! In a few weeks yes my sleep will be more disturbed but I will have a gorgeous baby to snuggle, will be able to sleep on my tummy and won't need to pee every moment not just awake for the sake of it.

catmombaby16 Fri 28-Oct-16 12:52:24

Thanks Katiegg! I'm just feeling blessed so trying to e got e try second!

Oh I hate the "just wait till baby's here" makes me want to scream!

I feel like I'm getting tired now and walking makes my hips ache but not gonna moan! Lol

AudreyBradshaw Fri 28-Oct-16 17:30:32

Signing in, 36+2 and bored of being pregnant now a bit! in fairness, I have sailed through and enjoyed it sorry no sickness, loads of energy, no cravings etc, but, I've been up at least twice a night since March to wee and now I'm finding I'm waking in pain with my hips fused in place/stomach cramping. I've or carpal tunnel in my right hand which is an unbelievably weird sensation too, like you've been asleep on your arm and then that feeling you get riiiiight before you get pins and needles, but constant since last Thursday!

And getting headbutted in the vag from the inside, and being exhausted a lot quicker now. And baby is apparently 95th centile, so I don't now quite how I feel about that yet!

But all signs are pointing towards it being ready to be born...so you KNOW I'll go overdue as balls and be homicidal soon enough!

Cat mom so glad to hear somebody enjoying pregnancy yet fed up of the "kind" comments people keep giving....!

LucieA79 Tue 01-Nov-16 20:44:05

I'm only 12 weeks.... can I join in?? Lol!!

Elland Tue 01-Nov-16 21:58:54

34 weeks and so bored of wow you're massive comments hmm Yes thank you, I know how big I am because I'm lugging the extra weight around every day that is making me tired 100% of the time!!!!!!!!!

We've just come back from a weekend away where I just wanted to relax and read my book in front of the open fire but nope, I could feel someone staring at me, looked up and a women practically jumped at the chance to ask me if I was about due, when I told her I still had 6 weeks she went in to the typical oh god, you're really big and the original "are you sure there's only one in there" hmm Yes I'm fucking positive!! 2 hours later and I hadn't managed to read a single page of my book!

She wasn't the only stranger wanting to question me about my life either!

I know people mean well but I've had enough of family and friends commenting on my size let alone randoms when I'm trying to have some down time before the twins baby arrives!
