Hi title says it all really. Just need to moan somewere as hate doing it in rl as so happy that I am having another DC. I already have a DD who is 5 and now having a DS. I'm 32 weeks and I feel like utter crap!! I can't remember the last time I slept the whole night. I am constanley up to the toliet. My morning sickness has returned although last night it happened at 2am. I can't get comfortable in bed! I have a pregnancy pillow but sleeping on my side hurts my hips and sleeping on my back hurts my back. I've got mega heartburn from any kind of food. My ankles ache is this even normal lol. I have siatcia so my back always hurts. I'm shattered all the time and trying to put on a brave face for my DD is getting hard. I know it's just pregnancy but I just had to write it down to get it out. Just don't know how long I can take it for and it's only gonna get worse until he's here. I'm sorry if this offends n e one I am so grateful to be pregnant again I just needed a moan somewere and I'm sure I'm not alone. Can't wait for 3 weeks wen I go on maternity leave. X

Hi, I feel your pain, I'm 34 weeks and could've written your post myself. Pregnant with a much wanted ds, a brother for my dd who's 2. Yet I'm really struggling. Desperately need to sort my hospital bag, wash and sort baby clothes and a million other jobs but all I feel like doing is hiding under the duvet and catching up on sleep.

So looking forward to meeting baby and pregnancy being over with!

katesav87 Tue 02-Apr-13 08:20:23

Thanks everyone glad I'm not alone I think I need a good cry then I may be able to get on with it!! Just can't wait to have my body back!!

I'm 32 weeks too and I'm starting to feel really fed up now. My bump feels so stretched and tender and my back is killing constantly. I wake up everytime I need to turn over and end up waking up mega thirsty and then get heartburn from the water in the night. Im constantly knackered and grumpy with very little sympathy from DP who thinks I'm just 'moody' for no reason. This is my first so I really feel for those of you who have other children to look after too. I have loved being pregnant but I'm really starting to feel fat and unattractive as opposed to 'glowing' x

33+1 with desperately wanted DC1, over the moon, but no idea how I'm going to get through the next few weeks til ML starts.Had infected root canal for the last 3 months (they still can't extract as the infection is so aggressive), can't sleep or eat properly and I can't take anything for it due to pg! So delighted to be pg and so excited to meet our LO but feel like this is sucking every drop of joy out. Constant pain and walking zombie as a combination of pg and the infection. No idea how you with DCs already are coping! You are heroes!

Thanks for giving me a space to have a little moan - will go back to pushing on through now. Hope you all have better days today, eyes on the prize ladies!

CareerGirl01 Tue 02-Apr-13 09:48:06

Me too - 34 nearly 35 weeks and feeling awful. Been through a lot this pregnancy and just want to meet DD2 now. She's merrily kicking away so isn't feeling her mummy's discomfort. Not long now for all of us-we'll be sipping champagne and eating chocolate and cheese (and tasting it in all their glory) soon x

ButteryJam Tue 02-Apr-13 10:37:24

You are not alone. I'm 32 weeks and feel rubbish. Haven't had a decent night's sleep in days. Been down with an awful cold for over two weeks now. Feel tired all the time, but I am trying to take it easy. Go easy on yourself flowers

Cordial Tue 02-Apr-13 11:43:58

Me too! How you ladies do this with children I don't know! Am 33 weeks. Sleep is patchy, headaches, ache all over I managed to get up this morning to wash my hair to go to work but I'm now back in bed having given up whilst putting my socks on.

I hate it particularly because it is very unlike me I'm hoping for a better day tomorrow. smile We are nearly there now only 4 weeks till ML!!!!how long have u all got til ML or D day?

Jojobump1986 Tue 02-Apr-13 12:19:13

31 weeks + one v active toddler who wants to climb up on the sofa & read books every 2 minutes! I can't bend anymore so he's had to learn to climb but still needs a hand to help pull him up. I'm sure I found pregnancy easier last time. I was nannying for a friend's 2 year old at this stage & carried him home from the park - a good 10 minute walk. He was bigger than DS1 is now & I struggle just to carry him up the stairs! I'm counting down the 6 weeks until I reach 'term' & can start trying all the things in the book to get DS2 out! Spicy pineapple curry to be consumed while bouncing on a ball! wink

3rdtimelucky73 Tue 02-Apr-13 12:58:01

34 wks today and agree with all the above.

Exhausted, but can't sleep.
Starving but can't eat.
Living in a tip but can't tidy.

Just concentrating on not being the most grumpy person on earth.....

katesav87 Tue 02-Apr-13 17:00:57

Im so glad im not alone but feel bad for everyone else. I just feel like im constanley run down and have a cold constanley and a headache for the last 3 days is not helping!!. all i do is moan nowadays haha im sure it wasnt this hard with my DD. Hurry up 8 weeks when ill be at my due date and then will be miserable if he hasnt come lol. Its just never ending. Just cant wait to have my body back.

ItsallisnowaFeegle Tue 02-Apr-13 17:08:58

I had a really shitty pg with DS1 (he's 16 weeks now).

I suffered a lot of what you're all going through and was so ill, I had to stop working.

All I can say is it will pass as soon as baby arrives and without being too mean, you're going to wish ,sometimes, that you could go back and force yourselves to relax. wink

Aww sorry for being such a meanie I feel for you all! I know how shite it is.

katesav87 Tue 02-Apr-13 17:57:15

your not being mean i need a kick up the bum to tell me to man up haha. I defo remember that feeling when i had my DD that sometimes i missed being pregnant. its all worth it in the end :-)

orangeone Tue 02-Apr-13 20:02:22

32 weeks tomorrow with DD2 and have a burst prolapsed and thrombised external pile. Oh and an almost 3 year old DD1 who isn't getting the concept mummy's bum is sore and she needs to lie down alot. Still got 4 weeks till ML - feel like crying.

Thank god for the codeine from the GP although god knows how I'm going to get this baby out in 8 weld without my entire undercarriage giving way.

Forgotten how un glamourous the final weeks of pregnancy are. Thanks for letting me moan ladies.....

orangeone Tue 02-Apr-13 20:03:15

Weeks not weld!

Actually I am crying.....

MadameJ Tue 02-Apr-13 20:13:43

Can I join in too, im 28 weeks with DC2 and this pregnancy is vile, I had such an easy time when I was pregnant with DD (now 2) despite working full time etc, this time I am a SAHM and I really am struggling, just keep focusing on the outcome as otherwise I may sit and cry!!!

ItsallisnowaFeegle Tue 02-Apr-13 20:28:54

Nobody here needs a kick up the arse, you've all got it really rubbish right now. DS was DC2 for me too and my first pg was a walk in the park.

Having my DS is wonderful, he's the boy who should never have been but by fuck am I coming apart at the seams so much more than ALL the illness and pain I suffered.

I suppose I'm trying to urge you ALL to rest rest rest right now.

ItsallisnowaFeegle Tue 02-Apr-13 20:32:47

And I fucking hated people telling me it'd be all worth it in the end...No shit Sherlock! Haha!

I hope you ALL find some comfort before DC arrives!

bigkidsdidit Tue 02-Apr-13 20:36:21

oh god me too. I'm 31 weeks with DC2, DS is 2.2 and very lively adn I work full time. And I'm working till 39 weeks, because DS was 15 days late and I assume I'll be late again and don't want to waste my paid leave

and i can't sleep and have to walk 2.5 miles each way to work

<cries>

katesav87 Tue 02-Apr-13 20:38:56

Glad I started this thread it's nice to have a moan and not get judged! I know I hate saying it'll be worth it In the end but for some reason I still tell myself that then I argue with myself at how shocking crap I feel and I just can't carry on like this lol. Oh the joys of pregnancy hey! It's not an easy ride!!

Fairy130389 Tue 02-Apr-13 20:46:48

I'm 29 weeks and I feel absolutely terrible. Honestly feel so much for you further along ladies...

To give you a bit of 'always someone worse off' my friend is 34 weeks and has just broken her leg! husband off to afgan and due in 6 weeks.. which will be spent in plaster...

I feel a bit bad about whinging about back pain! xzx

Overberries Tue 02-Apr-13 20:49:20

Oh god, I remember it well. All you get told is "you're nearly there now" but with a potential 10 weeks still to go feels like eternity! Hang on in there, the days will tick down slowly and twill all be worth it :-)

ng1412 Wed 03-Apr-13 07:55:54

I am exactly the same. Counting down the days. Hoping for a c section in four weeks. DD is hitting terrible twos, have no support and am 43 years old. All combining to make me the physical wreck I am!

WildeRumpus Wed 03-Apr-13 12:48:48

Am so glad for this thread! Am 34 weeks and have been secretly crying in corners today, hiding away from my 3 year old ds who just wants me to be so! Much! Fun! But I am not fun, I am knackered, stressed about how to finish a work project before the baby comes with no.childcare or sleep and have just moved house so no friends to offload on.

Feeling overwhelmed and right sorry for myself! And I had three mcs before this baby so I really do appreciate my baby! Pregnancy is tough, end of.

Binkybix Wed 03-Apr-13 14:09:40

Me too! Am nearly 30 weeks. Have been ok physically but started a really tough new job (or I'm being crap and it's not that tough) in Jan and have been struggling so much to cope with the stress and have been really, really down. I see other pregnant woman seemingly sailing through work up to 38/39 weeks and feel like such a failure. Have given in and using loads of leave to go on mat leave next week.

Sorry to hear everyone is having a tough time. Twill be all right smile

patchesmcp Wed 03-Apr-13 16:44:47

33 weeks here and exhausted too. Only have 3 weeks left at work and I'm counting down the days!

I have so many problems getting to sleep and then staying asleep I think I'm averaging about 5 hours sleep a night despite spending 9+ hours in bed sad

I hate, hate, hate being pregnant. There is really nothing nice about it. I feel so swollen down below (tmi blush ) that I'm dreading the thought of pushing the baby out as I wonder if everything else will come out too! I don't recall this problem with DC1 but then may be I've blocked it out of my memory hmm
