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.
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.

I'm 34+2

Moan moan <heartburn> moan <puke> Whinge moan <hip pain> moan Whinge <back ache> moan <BH> Whinge moan moan Whinge <tired> Whinge moan<puke>


SaucyJack Mon 28-Oct-13 16:56:57

22+5 and I'm in a perfectly good mood.

It's everybody around me who's an annoying shite.

grin saucy you are very very correct.

elskovs Mon 28-Oct-13 17:10:27

Im 33 + 5. Reading this I feel so lucky though. Have missed out on sickness heartburn and back ache etc.

I have horrible hip pain at night though. Ive been taking codeine but have read here that Im not supposed to?? Is that right?

WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 17:33:36

hit the nail on the head there saucy and upthefrigginduff that is a perfect summary grin

WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 17:35:55

I was given codeine by the midwife when I was in hospital elskovs I think you're allowed it?

YoniMitchell Mon 28-Oct-13 17:45:13

You're spot on saucy.

anyone else enjoying the added benefit of reflux? I keep getting mouthfuls of watery puke, nicely reminding me of the last thing I ate or drank.

YoniMitchell Mon 28-Oct-13 17:46:36

Oh, also in week 4 if a cough, which makes me wee a bit with every splutter (which also hurts my back more).

Christ, roll on January!

PoppyAmex Mon 28-Oct-13 17:51:41

35 Weeks

Have excess fluid and baby measuring on 99% so I'm massive
Have a cold / blocked nose / sore throat
A UTI (on antibiotics)
Sore back
Tingly hands and fingers
Swollen feet

A very active 19 month old DD and no hope of early labour
C-section booked for 39 weeks.

I'm sick of it.


WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 17:54:31

yoni I love the reflux and the pee coughing. It's what gets me up in the morning hmm

poppy I said that this morning. If I was an animal I would be been put down so I didn't suffer too much.

elskovs Mon 28-Oct-13 18:01:54

Oh thanks Whisper.. I hope its OK. I take 2 x 30 mg codeine phosphate in the evenings and its lovely, I sleep through needing to pee.

Really sorry for everyone else... its not a bit like my experience. I have had cramp once, but all this stuff about heartburn and puking makes me feel my baby is not the right size... I feel fine. My first 2 were only 6lb something, so I guess Im not really expecting this one to be that big.

Artesia Mon 28-Oct-13 18:04:31

Thank goodness for this thread- am in a vile mood today. Am 33+5, and horrific thrombosed haemerroids, which hurt like nothing on earth, and have kept me awake pretty much all night for the last 6 days. Saw my midwife today, who cheerfully said "they will only get Much worse from here on".

Then she told me the baby is breech and I should sit up straight all the time, and bounce on a birthing ball to try and turn him/her. I just burst into tears- I am in agony and can scarcely sit in any position, let alone straight on a hard chair or bouncing on a sodding ball.

Then, later in the appointment, she was measuring my bump. In a misplaced attempt to inject some levity into proceedings, I joked that my (very neat) bump was at least half cake. I then got a full stroppy lecture about how I shouldn't eat cake and pregnancy was no excuse to be greedy - apparently the baby will "grab all the sugar, and get really fat" hmm

Then, just to top it all, one of my haemerroids ruptured this afternoon. Such fun........

ipswichwitch Mon 28-Oct-13 18:07:58

I'm 33 +2 and so sick of frickin heartburn - the reflux is getting so bad I keep puking when I try to lie down and go to sleep. Back and joint problems mean I've never been able to sleep with pillows so even when propped up with eleventy million pillows to relieve heartburn I can't get comfy enough to sleep.
Hip joints feel like they're dislocating every 5 minutes, I either have piles or my arse has fell out, my legs and feet are the size of barrage balloons and I can't shift this bastard cold.

Now someone mentioned quarter pounders - I'm gonna have to ask DH where the hell mine is! (Well I might be being unreasonable there but surely it's allowed now!?)

39+2. Things Wot Have Annoyed Me Today:

The piddling.
The crying (I've just watched ER, an old man died. I cried.)
Taking the dog for a walk this morning. Out for an hour, passed the same person three times. First time 'Oooh, you're huge! When are you due?'. Second time 'Should you be walking this far if you're due on Saturday?!' Third time 'Not had that baby yet?!'. I know they were just making conversation but RAGH.
The texts, the Facebook messages and the calls asking 'how I am'. You lot NEVER ask how I am. If you want to know if theres any sign of the baby yet, ASK.
The fact I can't turn over properly in bed. For some reason I turned front ways last night. I got stuck like a weeble. I had to wake OH to get him to push me over.
The stabby fanjo that never develops into anything.
I developed stretch marks yesterday. I thought I'd avoided them.

Give me 10 minutes, I'm sure I can come up with more....

Norfolknway Mon 28-Oct-13 18:16:59


I think the dog walker would have got a lead around the neck if it had been me! Funny though grin

Yeah, heartburn and pissing yourself are the pits.

Everyone around me seems to be VERY Irritating, I wonder what their beef is?!

Slongette Mon 28-Oct-13 18:36:45

What is it with people's 'funny' little comments? Ok so my stomach stuck out a but before I was preggers so it's quite big now. I was 15 mins from home on Friday and someone I know said 'should you be out on your own in your condition?' WTF should I be confined to the house?

Just threw up in my mouth by bending down to check dinner in the oven - what's that all about?

That quarter pounder was actually really good!

I swear somebody is sending all the idiots,entitled twats and especially stinky people into my work on purpose.

These people cannot be a normal representation of the british public,someone is setting me up.

YomAsalYomBasal Mon 28-Oct-13 18:52:25

I'm surrounded by twunts too, DH being the biggest one of them all angry due at Xmas with twins and fookin massive. Can't walk anywhere or do anything really. Have 2 toddler DCs already who i love dearly but they are driving me up the wall. I have morning/all day sickness - still! heartburn, SPD (or ppgp or whatever name they've changed it to purely to annoy me) and rib pain like nothing I've ever known. Sleep deprived from the storm, too. God help anyone who pisses me off tonight angrygrin

froubylou Mon 28-Oct-13 19:48:03

Checks in.

Nods and agrees with everyone and everything.

Goes back to eating quality streets by the handfull, chased by gaviscon.

Edd 20/12/2013. Baby can not come quick enough.

Though obviously want him fully cookes first.

MrsPatMustard Mon 28-Oct-13 19:58:27

27 weeks and am the size of a house. Carrying very very out in front, to the point that even my work maternity trousers are starting to feel restrictive.

If I stand still for more than 5 mins I start to feel lightheaded. If I walk for more than ten minutes all the muscles/ligaments in my lower abdomen start to ache.

Have so long to go yet - wish it was over already....

ipswichwitch Mon 28-Oct-13 19:59:58

So many people keep telling me that this one'll come early - not actual expert people like midwives and drs though confused They are all pissing me off. This baby will come ON TIME. I don't want to miss DS going on the polar express train to see Santa. I want my 4 weeks off work that I have been looking forward to since August before this baby arrives. So, it will arrive ON TIME. I've already discussed this with the baby, I just want everyone else to feck off and stop wishing an early labour on me. Bastards.

ipswichwitch Mon 28-Oct-13 20:03:47

mrspatmustard (love the nn, just keep wanting to make inappropriate comments about hairy babies and putting massive tools in my box!!) the only good thing about work for me at the minute is the fact I wear scrubs which are just like pjs - feckin massive pjs in my case! but they are at least comfy

MrsPatMustard Mon 28-Oct-13 20:11:05

Thank you ipswichwitch. I love the idea of scrubs - or just oversized grandad pjs. But I'm guessing that wouldn't go down well in my office....

Bigbouncingbaby Mon 28-Oct-13 20:17:16

40+ 3 fat uncomfortable and fed up
Anaemic low platelets , can't get comfortable . Constant texts

Plus in the middle of moving house have to out 3 weeks Friday we must be mad!!

On the plus side sweep tomorrow pleeeeeease work

PinkParsnips Mon 28-Oct-13 20:32:54

Gosh yes how did I forget the heartburn?!

And worse, the reflux. Usually brought on by cake etc which is most annoying. Its at the point where I'll fall asleep, be sick in my mouth and spend the next 20 mins choking cos its gone down the wrong way.

Oh and yes to the pee leakages

And the stretchmarks. I was feeling very pleased with myself until yesterday when I noticed they were all hiding underneath my bump.

Good luck for your sweep tom bigbouncingbaby

lola0106 Mon 28-Oct-13 20:50:15

So nice to have somewhere to complain! 26+3 and fed up! Severe SPD since 14 weeks, teamed with scoliosis - housebound for weeks! Only get out now once a week to see my Mum. In agony! Ran out of things to watch on iplayer, 4od and all the rest! Going out of my mind!

Measuring perfectly but my MIL feels the need to comment on how massive I am whenever I see her! I'm not actually that big and I am carrying a baby! And the heartburn and reflux! Nothing is even touching it! Can't eat anything!

Also, because I'm in so much pain, I can't do any cleaning! The house is a tip and I feel so bad that DH has to try and fit tidying in between the massive project he is working on for work!

Just wish he was here now!!

SarahJayne321 Mon 28-Oct-13 21:00:12

Ooh I love this!

My back and legs are hurting, my feet are fat, I can't see my bits to even attempt to tidy the forest, my ribs hurt and


WhisperMen Mon 28-Oct-13 21:28:47

<waves at frouby and steals a quality street>

im now in bed and baby has wedged it's feet in my ribs. for fucks sake. I just want to sleep angry

mycatlikestwiglets Mon 28-Oct-13 22:05:45

40 weeks today and still pregnant angry. I have awful stabby fanjo pain and can hardly walk today but no sign of anything actually happening. On the plus side DH went out and bought me a cream cake earlier so at least I don't want to kill him ATM grin

pulls up a chair ahhh, this is where I belong!!!
PGP and HORRIFIC heartburn, I also carry gaviscon like a comfort blanket, even though it does sod all to help now. As for bending over? Instant reflux bleurgh, now can't put my own socks on!!

And despite putting socks on for me, DH is possibly THE MOST IRRITATING MAN ON THE PLANET right now. JUST BECAUSE, ok??! I really don't need a reason!!

As for the public? If I enter a supermarket again before giving birth I may murder someone.

And no, I am not frigging massive!!!

Ahhhhhhh, feel better, but stop hogging all the quality street froubylou sad

SolitudeSometimesIs Tue 29-Oct-13 00:28:52

Hello all,

30 weeks.
Constant trips to the loo for a trickle to come out.
Hip pain and weird stretchy agony from previous c-section scar.
Heartburn that I'm fairly sure could dissolve a hole in my chest.
Really fucking sensitive teeth that ache whenever I eat anything slightly above or below room tempreture.
Food aversions - imaging eating some things make me puke, things that smell bad make me barf.
Ribs that feel like they are being pulled apart from the inside.
I am not growing a baby, I am growing some sort of sumo-eel creation that slithers and writhes around in there constantly so that my moving clothes make a conversation point for strangers.
Oh, and my belly button is about to pop which is, quite frankly, disgusting.

And finally, everyone on the planet is really fucking annoying.

Feelslikea1sttimer Tue 29-Oct-13 00:43:19

37+2. Fucking heartburn. That is all.

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 00:54:36

Jumping on the band wagon

32+3 heartburn is the Bain of my life!!
Can't sleep. Everytime I swallow I get acid
Dp is snoring and it's pissing me off!
Fanjo hurts back hurts hips hurts

Baby's stuck her arms or legs or something under my rips! Bloody hurts.
Feel fat. Stretch marks are itching.
Just want scream and cry!!

No one ever warns you about the bad stuff in pregnancy.
I haven't gotten a glow either.

Stupid pharmacist wouldn't sell me the ranitidine I wanted for my heartburn jobs worth asking stupid questions

Feeling rather angry and glad I'm not alone


VeloWoman Tue 29-Oct-13 01:02:52

Can I join you ladies?

I am only 15 weeks but I am already very anxious and grumpy (high risk pregnancy) and DS will be going into surgery in two weeks when I am 17 weeks, in fact I feel like I am approaching peak anxiety if that exists.

But at least I was able to virtually bitch slap my pharmacist when he said I shouldn't be taking low dose asprin and I told him to take it up with the obstetrician since he was the one who prescribed it! That shut him up.

Oh and DH eats and drinks loudly and that's really pissing me off atm.

I sound like a right cow!

KalevalaForMePlease Tue 29-Oct-13 03:52:47

Oh thank God I found this thread! I hate being pregnant! This is my second and am at home with DD18 months. Sickness is gone, thankfully, but had SPD at end of first pregnancy and it's decided to show up early in this one! Feel like i've been kicked repeatedly in the groin, and the clicking and 'moving' every time i move is horrible. Everyone's saying, take it easy, don't do anything to aggravate it, but the house is a fucking mess! DH is all, don't worry, I'll do the vacuuming, but WHEN?!

And it's too bloody hot here, I know you're all freezing your asses off over there, but it's 30+ degrees here and I want to be all cosy, snuggled up in a blanket on the sofa, not dripping in sweat the minute I get out of the shower.

I'm only 23+3 as well, so long to go! Ahhh, that feels better!

Feelslikea1sttimer Tue 29-Oct-13 04:51:39


I spend the whole night pacing the floor with twitchy legs!

I love being pregnant during the day by night. it turns into some kind of torture sad

fucking pregnancy insomnia angry

PrincessKitKat Tue 29-Oct-13 09:14:22

I'm only 18 weeks.

I'm fooking HUGE already. And it's a flabby tyre-style bump, not the 'glowing supermodel who swallowed a beach ball' look that I was aiming for.
Plus bump is itchy underneath, which indicates stretch marks will be happening despite spending a fortune on smelly bio oil confused

Baby likes to sit on my sciatic nerve OR wedge itself into my left kidney.

And Id kill for an undisturbed nights sleep. Between crazy dreams & sore hips I haven't slept well for months.

Sigh. And everyone's bored of my moaning, can't blame them sad

Aaaaaaaaaaaand now I have thrush. Again.


WhisperMen Tue 29-Oct-13 11:49:36

ugh. thrush is the worst.

Peanutsmummy2be Tue 29-Oct-13 14:41:30

This thread is fab!! smile grin
Gggrrr preggo rage!!!! Why do people have to park so frigging close to you in asda car park then i cant get bump into car!!! Climb through passenger side....not impressed!!!!! angry angry angry angry xxx

OnTheRunFromTheAcademe Tue 29-Oct-13 14:50:48

21+2 and already using crutches due to SPD.

My 19 month old ds has discovered how to flush the loo, work won't give me a permit to park closer to my office, and my childminder is away for THREE WEEKS.

This being my second time, I am only too aware of how much worse it is going to get. And then there's the whole newborn/toddler combo scaring the shit out of me.

I never glowed last time either. Just farted a lot. And leaked.

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 14:51:06

Park in the mother and baby bays!! Your carrying a baby just it's inside you. Therefore same principle! Lol I know a few people that have done it. Plus it's closer to the store. Therefore less waddling walking

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 15:56:54

Heartburn is a bitch!! Kill me now!

PopcornGrace Tue 29-Oct-13 16:15:36

32 + 3 today. Can't get comfortable. Heartburn. Insomnia. And very weird adult dreams.

Peanutsmummy2be Tue 29-Oct-13 16:15:53

Thanks Stom21 think i'll be doing that from now on grin Sieey you're suffering....heartburn is hellish, have you been to your doctor? I was suffering really bad so doctor gave me omeprazole & its amazing!! wink xx

Peanutsmummy2be Tue 29-Oct-13 16:16:11

Oops Stom91 grin

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 16:23:49

I've been taking ranitidine but I've ran out!
Think I may have to get to the drs! Grr.
I'm 32+3 too! Due 21st dec!
If I could take away one thing in pregnancy I think it would be the heartburn!!
Dp said about putting the car seat in the car so it looks
Like we have a baby and then parking in the mother and child bays. I said no but now thinking of changing my
Mind haha I'm starting to struggle to get in and out too

WhisperMen Tue 29-Oct-13 16:25:01

hip pain is killing me today. If I so much as try and walk to the kitchen and stand for long enough to make toast I am in agony. grumbles

PoppyAmex Tue 29-Oct-13 17:05:09

"I've been taking ranitidine but I've ran out!"

This sounds like my absolute worst nightmare. I'd commit robbery before letting this happen to me. Go to the GP Stom!

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 18:03:04

It was 2am! Lol
I've got
Zantac from co op to keep me going mums got
Loads of omeprazole so she's
Going to bring that over.

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 18:08:56

Omg if this baby kicks me in the ribs one more time so help me!!
I wouldn't mind I love her moving but why a liking to my ribs?? It bloody hurts!!!

Peanutsmummy2be Tue 29-Oct-13 18:45:58

I found omeprazole is much better, I was taking 2 ranitadine a day n was still chomping rennies but no need for rennies since started omeprazole 1 week ago grin xx

Stom91 Tue 29-Oct-13 18:56:52

Ooh I shall get some then! smile

Norfolknway Tue 29-Oct-13 19:01:20

Right, it's getting worse.

My DB and SIL gave me their lovely Phil and Teds double vibe with all the bits - used it for the first time today and the handle has snapped sad

Also, power cut while I was making dinner, forgot to take DD's coat to the park this morning, legs are aching, scalded my hand on hot water.

Had a massive weep sad
Due next Monday. Sick of life!!

What is this 2 week half term fuckery? Childminder has sloped off to Florida, dd is a teething tyrant placated only by Mr Tumble on constant loop. My house feels like Guantanamo Bay.
Hips hurt. Hospital mislabelled/lost my last bloods AGAIN. Exemption certificate form filled out twice. Still no card. Got poxy dentist that I'll have to pay for and then twat about claiming it back.
Cats are the most annoying abominations on this earth.
DH away with work and COMPLAINED about his swanky hotel & having to go out to posh restaurant with free flowing booze. Want to kill him.
All I want to do is slump in the sofa watching back to back episodes of Spooks on Netflix while eating the funsize chocolate bars I bought for trick or treaters. They can piss off. I'm going to put a note on door at 7pm when dd goes to bed and if any fuckers ring the bell anyway they'll get my wrath.

39 weeks today too. I'm SO tired I can't see straight.

And mil and aunt in law have just co bullied me into going out for lunch. I've said no 6 times and finally broken down when they've told me they're coming to pick me up.

My back is in agony and I can't stop throwing up, the LAST thing I want to do is have lunch with two women who have shown not one iota of interest in the last 9 months because they've just realised the baby is about to arrive and they want first visits and bragging rights.

I've done this whole 9 months on my own with no support from anyone (apart from lovely dh) whatsoever. Not even a phone call or cup of tea (I live in the States and all my family and friends in UK).

Feels like Rosemary's baby.

Can I be a fretty pregnant woman?
37.5 weeks, DC off with GPs I wanted to finish a quilt but instead I am fretting about slightly raised blood pressure. It's gone up on the last two weeks and I had preeclampsia before so a bit worried.
I wanted to finish a quilt today while DC away but instead I am sitting on the sofa fretting.

mycatlikestwiglets Wed 30-Oct-13 13:52:46

I am 40+2 and sat fretting about whether or not things are finally starting to happen. Am supremely uncomfortable and ready for this baby so please let it be today!

WhisperMen Wed 30-Oct-13 13:55:29

oh I hope everything is okay with you twotears

ipswichwitch Wed 30-Oct-13 14:30:42

right here goes...

I'm 33 weeks

Heartburn is so bad I'm vomiting into my mouth all the time (cheese pasty for lunch was a spectacularly bad idea, but works canteen had feck all else)

DS is ill (ear infection and tonsillitis AGAIN) so we've had no sleep since friday

Hips are in agony - not SPD, pre-existing joint problems

Carpal tunnel syndrome making me want to chop my hands off

This isn't a lovely pregnant glow I have going on - I'm just way too fecking hot. Even brushing my teeth has me sweating at the minute!

My feet and legs are so swollen they hurt

I am having a bad day at work - seems like every idiot in the local area has been sent my way today and I really don't have the patience for this!

Someone started a thread about viscount biscuits and now I really want the whole bloody packet one <wail!>

ingl0rious, I'm planning to get home and start on the trick or treater chocs too. Little buggers round our way started knocking on monday. MONDAY!!!!!!! and they didn't have proper costumes. And they looked about 30. No chocolate for them if they can't even be arsed to put the effort in.

god, I'm a grumpy cah today!

CitygirlbytheC Wed 30-Oct-13 14:36:31

I'm 35 + 3 and have THE RAGE!!

I am so sick of my mum being a massive hypocrite about names that we are thinking of for our baby ("don't let what other people think have any influence on your choice" followed by "oh I HATE that name") so we're not going to tell her our final choice until we've registered the name!!

Sick of heartburn. And I know lots of movement is good but ow ow ow ow ow ow ow can you give me a rest please little one???? Just for an hour maybe??

Sick of people saying how massive my bump is and how I've grown "loads" over the last week. And now people I don't even know at work are spreading the rumour that I'm not coming back after Mat Leave.


Roll on Friday when my Mat Leave actually starts!

Tiptop32 Wed 30-Oct-13 22:09:20

Arghhhh had enough today for the following reasons so am ranting here......

1. Discovered ds had downloaded minecraft onto the laptop I had to buy him for school (requirement for yr 5&6-but that's a totally different rant)
2. Son decided to carve the lion into his pumpkin that I have been wanting to do for years but never had a big enough pumpkin to do it and he ruined it...... Would have looked so lovely too
3. Dp and me looking at what new car to buy - just getting ideas online. Keeps trying to convince me to get a 3 dr ( ummmm no), from just looking online he's decided we're having a certain car and he wants to go buy one without me even driving it as apparently as its the same make as current car it will be exactly the same to drive. F-ing pissed off with him as it will be me driving it all the time as he has no intention of driving it as he loves his transit van....
4. My mum had tears in her eyes when she finally relented that I don't need an all singing and dancing pram- for Goodness sake mother babies are not all about having the most expensive unpractical (for me) pram. All she has talked about for last 10 weeks is the blinking pram and I am only 17 weeks...

Rant over lol

superlambanana Thu 31-Oct-13 11:14:40

I am only 5+5 and have already cried over most people at work for stupi reasons and am now lying on sofa in agony with crappy stomach pains. At least doc has told me not to go into work - I barely have the energy to go to the loo...

superlambanana Thu 31-Oct-13 12:33:35

(I realise this is small fry compared with the rest of you!)

WhisperMen Thu 31-Oct-13 12:39:14

33 weeks today and I have not stopped throwing up since last night. It's made all the more worse because I cant bend down far enough and end up being splashed by vomity toilet water.

BummyMummy77 Thu 31-Oct-13 13:04:56

Whisper I feel your pain on that one. Gross.

I actually full pissed myself last night.
All over the sofa and dh. I freaked out shouting
my waters have br

BummyMummy77 Thu 31-Oct-13 13:05:08


BummyMummy77 Thu 31-Oct-13 13:05:58

Oh for FUCKS sake even my phone hates me!

I freaked out thinking my waters had broken until dh pointed out it stank of wee. sad

YoniMitchell Thu 31-Oct-13 13:10:27

It's getting worse.

I'm pissed off with the checkout girl in M&S because the carrier bag she gave me for my shopping was banging against my legs as I walked from the shop to the office.

I'm pissed off with the woman who looked at me on the tube on my way into work.

I'm pissed off with the girl whose suitcase got vaguely in my way about 10m ahead of me at the ticket barriers.

I'm pissed off with the decorators for doing what we're paying them for - I just want them to be DONE AND FUCK OFF.

Will this end?

YoniMitchell Thu 31-Oct-13 13:11:03

Bummy sad

WhisperMen Thu 31-Oct-13 13:30:09

the fucking handle to flush the loo just snapped off in my hand. I can not deal with this today. I now have to try and get hold of the landlord which is never easy.

I think I am just going to eat crisps and chicken nuggets and ignore the situation in the hopes it goes away.

BummyMummy77 Thu 31-Oct-13 13:38:57

I think pregnant women should all be sectioned in the last month.

That or people actually do what they're meant to and be nice.

I feel nauseas. Have done for days with intermittent puking and the other one running alongside heartburn so bad I keep being sick in my mouth <boak>

And What's with the baby deciding to move into my chest!?
That's where my Lungs go,they're pretty important,get back into my lower torso,you cant have my entire body!
I can't sodding breathe.

My DC are driving me mental my 5 yr old feels the need to say everything that comes into her head,and Will Not Shut Up About Sodding Halloween.
And the 3yr old is just a great big ball of Whinge ATM.

And I have to work this evening. Yeahy.
I feel sorry for the customers,they have no idea whats going to hit them if they dare ask me a single idiotic question...and the animals tbh...I'm going to end up assaulting a bunny or something...


seriously, how much longer?!

Stom91 Thu 31-Oct-13 14:15:54

Sorry girls need a rant.
Wok up this morning. As got dressed to find that non of my trouser fit not even my maternity one I had! Stupid fat arse in the way!! So I'm wearing a pair that I can do up. My stretch marks have finally popped (im33weeks) they itch I've put cream on but still itchy

I feel huge!! My face feels like it's ballooned but looking at me I look no different.

Had a call from mw she has the results of the swab I had taken at hospital on Saturday and I have really bad thrush (had no symptoms though) so I now need a dr appoinent to get some canesten as she said I need the pessary too. (I've never used one what's it like?
Also me and dp dtd for the first time in for months the other say so that means I've probably given it to him. Great!

Argghhhhhh I hate being pregnant so much
I am not doing it again!! (Saying that give it a couple years I I'll prob be pregnancy again lol )

BummyMummy77 Thu 31-Oct-13 15:36:17


The pessary is no big deal. Better than an itchy moomin anyway.

I know how you feel with the clothes. It's getting cold here (was -8 last night) and I have one dress that fits. And no tights. No pjs, nothing.

I can't stop crying. Pretty much every part of my body hurts or aches and I've slept 6-8 hours in the last three nights. I can't actually DO labour this tired.

I just want my Mum and for this all to be over. People keep saying "are you excited?". I'm so not excited, I'm miserable, scared and sad and feel like crawling into a hole to sleep forever.

Stom91 Thu 31-Oct-13 16:48:04

I actually don't have an itchy Moomin lol I've got no symptoms other than a little discharge. The mw São it's really high up.

Yup I feel the same. Absolutely terrified of labour and birth and the pain I just wana crawl under a rock lol
I am not
Doing this ever again lol

Peanutsmummy2be Thu 31-Oct-13 17:54:59

Needed a rant this morning....this is pretty much how my morning started!!! Rageeee!! Can laugh about now though grin Bent down to put uggs on to go to drs n was sick everywhere!!

Ggrrrr angry angry angry xx

Stom91 Thu 31-Oct-13 17:56:38

Oh gosh peanuts hope you're ok
Now x

BummyMummy77 Thu 31-Oct-13 19:35:47

I've got to say, I'm thinking twice about doing it again. The plan was we'd try a few months after this one's born. FUCK THAT.

peanuts that sucks. I threw up in bed this afternoon. In my mouth. I'm ashamed to say I swallowed it as I knew I wouldn't be able to get to the bathroom without it going everywhere.

Stom91 Thu 31-Oct-13 20:02:23

I'm waiting at least 3 years for another lol

Peanutsmummy2be Thu 31-Oct-13 21:32:32

Yeh im ok thanks stom91.
Aww bummy hope youre ok? Even if i had wanted to I couldnt have swallowed this back down & it was proper projectile!! shock
Had a much better afternoon/evening though & now having an early night grin
Hope everyone is good, will need to get laptop out tomorrow & have a proper catch up with mumsnetters smile xx

OnTheRunFromTheAcademe Thu 31-Oct-13 21:33:04

Reflux. Gaaaah. Just when I was lying down with ds to get him to sleep, so I couldn't get up for nearly an hour. Why does my body hate me? Why?!?
