WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 11:57:31

I am 36+3 and I am FED UP.

I keep having stupid niggly pains that mean I can't get comfy and I swear the baby is stabbing my cervix with a knife. The thought of potentially another 5/6 weeks of this depresses the hell out of me.

I have had a shower and just put clean pyjamas on because I can't be bothered with today.

Anyone else miserable?

birdybirdy21 Sun 24-Nov-13 12:06:14

I'm 34 + 1 and know that I'm having a c section at 37 + 6 and im bloody miserable. Have been for ages. I've got bad SPD and a toddler who isnt a particularly great sleeper to deal with. I'm bloody huge as well.

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 12:07:19

you're lucky to have an end date in sight though. Focus on that smile

DontLetTheMugglesGetYouDown Sun 24-Nov-13 12:31:47

Bless you, I remember the stabby pains well! I spent most of my last trimester in the bath or sleeping on a mountain of pillows.

everythinghippie29 Sun 24-Nov-13 12:43:42

38 + 2 here, feel huuuuge, can't sleep and have spent all my time cleaning like a maniac and getting annoyed if ANYONE puts anything out of place, including myself, making living normally a bit of a struggle! wink

Achey, tired and also have a full blown cough and cold which is uncomfortable too.

I know I'm on the final stretch but it could be another 3 weeks and that would be horrible! We've only got a shower and I have never wanted to soak all day in the bath so much in my life!

Moany, moan, moan...I really should cheer up, eh?

Hope all of you ladies feel better soon! grin

froubylou Sun 24-Nov-13 12:49:03

Me. I'm here mning because I really don't have the energy to do anything else.

My back hurts if I stand, my coxyx if I sit, my hips if I lie down.

Baby breech and high so terrible indigestion and breathless.

He has a foot in my fanjo I think. He thinks its hilarious to stomp about on it.

I keep getting pmt cramps and the bhs have ramped up massively but I can't even get excited about them as he is breech.

I am in bed for 8pm but up every 2 hours for a wee.

I am either furious or over emotional.

I am bored and fed up and pissed off.

I have a scan tomorrow so hopefully I will be given a c section date. I can't decide whether I want him to still be breech and be given an end date or if I want him to have turned so that I can start the eviction process. Will be 37 weeks on Friday so DP might get lucky next weekend.

Lovely spicey curry and dtd on Friday night. Then going to finish Christmas shopping, buy new tree, wrap up presents and generally do too much lol.

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 13:07:21

I just made a chicken cheese and hash brown burger and then burst into tears because it isn't spaghetti hoops on toast. What the fuck hormones?

bluebeanie Sun 24-Nov-13 13:17:36

I hear you. I went to 40+12. Gave birth the day I was due to be induced. I felt miserable, massive and hated the lack of control over when things would finally start happening. I couldn't stand the constant texts asking how I was. Hang on in there. Just remember that this will all be distant memory soongrin

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 13:30:12

how can I be so bloody exhausted without having done anything? why won't my body just let me sleep for more than an hour at a time. life is mean

SolitudeSometimesIs Sun 24-Nov-13 13:32:51

Can I have a whine too?

34w4days, have spd, a two and a half year old and a husband who is working flat out at the moment so never home. I'm so so sore that I cry about twice a day and so frustrated that I'm unable to do all the stuff I need to.

I spent the morning making Christmas cookies with DS and all I want is a hot chocolate to dip them in but I can't face going to the shop because I'm so fucking sore. We wanted three children but this is the last one. Can't face doing this again.

Moan over. Thanks for that. You all have my sympathies.

nannynome Sun 24-Nov-13 13:58:03

I will join in too, 33 +6 and currently trying to help DH and his friend pack house for moving on weds/Thursday sad whole place/life is utterly upside down, SPD is driving me mental and so is DH. He can't think more than one thing at once bless him and I am trying to juggle:remember everything from utilities, network connections, appointments for diabetes clinic, physio, estate agent plus teach someone how to do my job and do everything on not enough sleep and a baby who is thinking it hilarious to booty ribs and jump on my sciatic nerve so my leg vanishes occasionally. Am counting the days! Still got his family and my family to deal with over the next 2 weekends as we have cancelled Christmas!! Hugs to all x

alice93 Sun 24-Nov-13 14:20:51

I'm 33+5 days, I'm a student with huge ton of essays to write before this baby is born - I can't type at the table as my back begins to hurt before too long, the sofa is uncomfortable and lying in bed gives me heartburn. DP can't sleep because I'm moaning in my sleep about heartburn!! (thankfully at night I'm too tired to notice, and just have the occasional wonder around the house before going back to bed)
Today I woke up sad, and got even more sad that my mum is off on holiday for a week - I'm not jealous, and it's not like i'd see her anyway if she wasn't away!! No idea why it made me sad.
It feels like there is still so much time left sad The heartburn alone is enough. sad

EmB1715 Sun 24-Nov-13 15:33:53

Yep! 38+3 here and desperate for this to end!

BookTart Sun 24-Nov-13 15:44:57

33+6 here and every time the baby moves it feels like I'm going to wet myself. Haven't slept for more than an hour at a time for a couple of weeks, and still have 2 weeks at work. In theory I could be like this for another 6 weeks or so <weeps>
You all have my utter sympathy.

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 15:53:58

<offers everyone a biscuit and a giant hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows>

lastnightopenedmyeyes Sun 24-Nov-13 16:38:20

I'm not late third trimester yet (31 weeks) but I'm already v uncomfortable. Braxtons, standby pains, lower back, hip and leg pain that stops me sleeping at night. And a very active 3 year old to run about after. confused

Looking forward to January!

lastnightopenedmyeyes Sun 24-Nov-13 17:34:55

Standby pains?! Stabby pains thank you very much grin

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 17:38:37

I think they can also be known as standby pains. in the sense that they put you on standby for labour grin

PistachioTruffle Sun 24-Nov-13 17:45:02

37+5. A word of advice: Do not decide that after several months of not being able to see it, that looking down below with a hand mirror is a good idea. hmm

WhisperMen Sun 24-Nov-13 17:52:41

I shall take your advice pistachio I don't think I have ever looked at it anyway confused

lastnightopenedmyeyes Sun 24-Nov-13 18:18:53

Whispermen - yes standby pains is quite a good name for them!

I've already made the mirror mistake confusedconfusedconfused

Quodlibet Sun 24-Nov-13 18:25:15

37 wks here and one more week of work to go. Tired, grumpy, achy, swollen hands, fed up of not being able to bend in the middle or put my shoes on. Middle back aches if I stand up, hips ache when I sleep, stretched ribs ache all the time.
Plus all my trousers/tights are too tight - cant bear anything pressing on bump anywhere as it sets off BHs. Can't abide the thought of another 5 weeks potentially of this.

Blondie276 Sun 24-Nov-13 19:18:36

Hi everyone , not sure I can cheer people up but I feel all your pain ! I'm 39+1 and have given up hope of this baby being born before my due date on sat' I had to give up work early as got v bad spd and am pretty much house bound now. Cannot get comfortable in aNy position and have recently has a lovely bout of bad piles to deal with too. Why does no one tell you pregnancy is actually awful?! I know it's all worth it in the end but I can't eat anymore pineapple, drink anymore raspberry leaf tea, eat any more curries or jump on my DH anymore ( far too uncomfirtable!)
Totally done with pregnancy now and my patience is wearing v thin! I'm hoping some thing will start happening this week as I've had not some much as a twinge so far- not even any BH!!!
Sorry -moan over. Feel a little better now! ;)

Lumpy76 Sun 24-Nov-13 19:49:14

37 +5 here!! Dc7 so you'd think that I'd be very used to this but I'm MORE than ready to have a baby now but also terrified as I know what I'm about to go through....I have very fast labours so much pain relief is not an option.

Pistachio I totally agree...don't look down there...

Haven't packed my bag yet (although i have bought everything now) as kind of feel if I'm ready there'll be no chance of things happening before baby is forced out!

I'm annoying my DH intensely by rearranging furniture, the house, cleaning etc He says it's nesting (I did have him clear out the garage the day before the night I had dc2) but it's just about keeping busy and the time passing more quickly....otherwise it seems to stand still!!! Good luck to all of us!!!!

cupcake78 Sun 24-Nov-13 19:53:54

I don't envy any of you! The last few weeks are hard going. To give you hope dd is now 5 months and she's amazing! I've spent all day laughing at my two children. Ds 6 is hilarious, dd is so pleased with herself she giggles at everything from grabbing a toy to rolling over.

I had HG from day one and really bad SPD! I love not feeling sick, can walk for miles again. Its so totally worth it . I would do it all again tomorrow if dh would let mewink

LittlePeaPod Sun 24-Nov-13 22:29:09

34 +3 here... Insomnia and tonight I have been limping about all night because I have shooting, stabbing pains in my lower back and right butt cheek. Hurts like hell. Not sure if its a trapped nerve or sciatica.

Also my BH have started getting stronger and painful. On Thursday night they were so strong and painful they woke me up at 11pm and they didn't stop till 3.30am. I woke DH up at 1am because I thought it was Pre-term labour. He called the hospital and they said hot bath and paracetamol. blush. We have consultant appointment tomorrow so hopefully find out CS date. I think having an end date will really help me...

I could moan some more but I won't.. All I will say is I am so looking forward to things getting worse the bigger our DD grows over the next few weeks. Yeeeaaaaaaa sad

ipswichwitch Mon 25-Nov-13 09:15:52

I'm 37+2 with bastard carpal tunnel syndrome that's getting worse by the minute - half the time I can't feel my hands, the other half they are so painful I'm contemplating chopping the buggers off. I can't get comfy anywhere, I can't sleep (badly sleeping 2 yo not helping there). I'm massive, knackered and have no appetite for food other than total shite. This baby will have a black belt in everything by the time it's born judging by all the constant kicking. It's like that scene in Alien with John Hurt....

WhisperMen Mon 25-Nov-13 10:52:26

I just came to shout that pregnancy fucking sucks and I hate it. Why do we do it? There must be an easier way to make babies by now?

38+3 today.


<cries in the corner for no particular reason>

Felix90 Mon 25-Nov-13 11:19:39

34 weeks and hate the thought that I could potentially have another 8 weeks of this. SPD is crippling me and I'm sick of being stuck in the house because I literally cannot walk further than a few meters. Last night I cried my eyes out because I couldn't sleep because of the pain. And we are moving house in 2 weeks time confused

WhisperMen Mon 25-Nov-13 11:29:41

<goes and sits and cried with upthe>

SolitudeSometimesIs Mon 25-Nov-13 12:20:58

I think the fact that we're all looking forward to the agony of childbirth speaks volumes.

My doctor offered me paracetamol for my SPD - if I could lift my foot off the ground I'd have kicked her hard in the shins. I WANT THE GOOD DRUGS!

Felix90 Mon 25-Nov-13 12:27:33

Why on earth do they tell you to take paracetamol when it's not even an anti-inflammatory? It's the most frustrating thing ever. I'd be better off necking smarties than damn paracetamol angry

13loki Mon 25-Nov-13 12:32:56

39 +1. over it. At most 20 days left. And DD (who is 3) will nap at childminders, will nap when Daddy is home, but will not nap for me. I want a shower! Well, I want a bath, but I don't have a bath in my house. Seriously contemplating getting a hotel room with a bath on the weekend and leaving DH with the kids while I lay in the bath and sleep.

Still, at least since stopping work I no longer need codeine to move.

SolitudeSometimesIs Mon 25-Nov-13 12:34:20

Oh I'd never even thought of that. She said it was for pain management but I am in agony, paracetamol wouldn't touch it. I asked was she advising me to take 2 paracetamol every 4 hours, 7 days a week for the next 6-8 weeks and she made a comment about how they need to be taken regularly for them to work.

To me that level of paracetamol would be hideous.

Felix90 Mon 25-Nov-13 12:38:09

I'd feel uncomfortable taking that amount of paracetamol too. They can prescribe codeine if the pain gets really bad, but my GP is quite against it and said he wants to avoid it getting to that stage hmm

LittlePeaPod Mon 25-Nov-13 14:32:59

I am back... It's 2.32pm and I have a shed load of stuff to do but sat here struggling to get going because I feel utterly exhausted and drained all of a sudden... FFS, it never ends!

WhisperMen Mon 25-Nov-13 14:50:52

I'm back in bed after my mw appointment. sent dp out to do me some food shopping. nap time here we come

LittlePeaPod Mon 25-Nov-13 14:55:00

Wisper I am so jealous... Just about to drag my tired self out now.... sad

WhisperMen Mon 25-Nov-13 15:25:18

don't be too jealous. I don't think I'll be able to nap. my brain wont switch off and I've got horrendous cramps. sad

WhisperMen Mon 25-Nov-13 19:04:15


hope everyone is alright

MatryoshkaDoll Mon 25-Nov-13 21:29:44

I had a massive tantrum over cooking dinner tonight for no real reason. Ended up storming off and shutting myself in the bedroom.

I want to clean everything all the time.

At night I can't breathe properly (anaemic, despite being on hardcore iron tablets) and I have about 3 or 4 dizzy spells a day where I feel like I'm going to pass out.

33 + 6 and counting...

lovelilies Mon 25-Nov-13 21:42:24

Utterly fed up here too, 33+1 sad
was on antenatal ward til 3am today with tightenings, been overdoing it, so now signed off work for the last 2 week til mat leave. I actually feel sad that I never said bye to everyone! been looking forward to finishing for ages and now I have it's such an anticlimax!hmm
Also dp is away in Australia so its just me and dd, I thought we'd have a lovely girly time while he's away but I'm just an achy, tired grumpy old boot!
Poor dd, wants her old mum back.
brew and thanks to everyone else feeling like a big pile of steaming dog shit.

Felix90 Mon 25-Nov-13 21:48:33

Lovelilies I'm the same! I have been signed off right up to my last day of maternity leave so never even said bye to anyone and I keep worrying about my special mug and hand cream that's left on my desk at work haha. I've also got a mega stash of nice tea bags in my desk drawers! hmm

lovelilies Mon 25-Nov-13 22:09:38

Felix I will probably pop in this week (to do timesheet and give them the sick note!) and say bye...
Can't even make it to the xmas meal out, as dd is singing in a concert same evening!
And now.I.have heartburn sad angry

LittlePeaPod Tue 26-Nov-13 02:17:25

Well its 2.17am and the insomnia has kicked in again....

Whisper what kind of cramps are you getting? Is it leg etc. cramps?

MiserableCowWhenUpTheDuff Tue 26-Nov-13 02:45:33

9 days overdue and mnetting a 3am...

Yes I would say its safe to say, I'm bloody miserable!!!

I don't have any particular moans other than the wide awake for no reason at all almost every single night... It wouldn't be so bad if I could get up and do something but that would wake the rest of the house up! :-/ x

everythinghippie29 Tue 26-Nov-13 03:06:44

38 and 4 now...Can't sleep. Kept getting awful cramps in my left butt cheek earlier and a little bit of period type pain. I got all excited but nothing since this evening and no other signs so don't think it was anything significant.

Heartburn but have ran out of Rennie...noooo

I would kill for a decent nights sleep and for the insane urge to clean everything all the time would let up.

Nice to know I'm not alone, hope you all feel more comfy soon! thanks

LittlePeaPod Tue 26-Nov-13 03:12:14

mserable and everything. Hopefully we will all go back to sleep soon! flowers

WhisperMen Tue 26-Nov-13 09:45:53

littlepeapod it's cramps at the bottom of my bump. had them for 3 days now off and on and they are bloody annoying.

hope you all got some more sleep ladies. Tiredness is a bitch.

HeadlessHeadmistress Tue 26-Nov-13 10:04:04

I'm only 32 weeks and I'm soooooo over it already.

Pregnancy is a fucking JOKE, whoever decided this was the best way to procreate should be shot (and they were DEFINTELY a man angry).

WhisperMen Tue 26-Nov-13 10:10:51

I totally agree headless Why does it have to be so bloody difficult sad

FobblyWoof Tue 26-Nov-13 11:14:51

You lot have me feel sane for the first time in weeks. 35 weeks today and dp is lovely and tells me to rest and I just feel like a lazy bugger because all I do is bloody rest (aside from looking after 2yo dd) and I'm still so shattered all the time.

We've got so much to do before baby arrives and I just can't muster up the energy to do any of it!

ipswichwitch Tue 26-Nov-13 11:22:36

Waaaaah! The heartburn is back!!!
I've had 2 weeks of no bastarding heartburn and last night it came back with a vengeance. 2yo DSs sleep was the worst it's been in ages last night, so I've ha no sleep at all. Tuesday is MiLs usual day with DS (her choice) nd she rang this morning to say she was too busy to come for more than an hour. Shortly after DH rang and I just sobbed down the phone at him - tiredness makes me scarily emotional. Next thing I know MIL arrives and says she'll take DS til at least half 1 (thank god!) I am now trying - and failing - to have a nap.

LittlePeaPod Tue 26-Nov-13 11:22:52

Oh Whisper flowers for the cramps... My BH are getting sinful andnits not good. I am so exhausted right now and struggling to nap through the day. Today I am trying to sort through DD clothes ready for going into her room but mattering the energy is proving difficult...

LittlePeaPod Tue 26-Nov-13 13:55:21

Sorry to be back so soon but just dropped a cup of hot lemon and ginger tea. Smashed the cup. Just sat in the kitchen and cried big sobby, snotty crys having a massive pity party on my own!

Wibblypiglikesbananas Tue 26-Nov-13 14:02:17

Another one with words of hope. Had DC2 a month back at 38+2 - despite the sleepless nights and toddler to care for as well, I feel so much better than when I was pregnant. It is amazing! No more heartburn, needing the bathroom every 3 seconds, just feeling so huge!

Wishing you all good luck x

everythinghippie29 Tue 26-Nov-13 14:36:23

Aww Littlepeapod I did the same with a casserole dish the other week. You would have thought it was a most treasured item from my tortured sobs!

Made a 'To Do' list for today of little jobs (at 5.30 this morning), reading it back now it seems like the rambling essay of a mad person. I have actually 'bleach back wall in kitchen' and I've listed all of the pots and pans 'to be soaked in distilled vinegar mix to remove any marks again'...I cleaned ALL of the pans just a week ago. hmm

Hope everyone has a better day and thank you to those with messages of hope! reassuring! grin

Blondie276 Tue 26-Nov-13 15:00:06

Hello all again- god aren't we a miserable bunch haha. Nice to know there is light at the end of the tunnel though- does make it a teeny weeny but more bearable knowing it's not forever.
I'm 39+3 now. Had slight period type pains last two days but nothing else. I have tried everything now and still no movement so in resigning myself to the fact she will arrive when she wants to!
I'm actually just bored and fed up now- spd is a total bitch just to add insult to the already horrible injury of late pregnancy!
Got my fingers crossed we all drop soon!!!! ( would cross my legs too but as bump is too big and spd is too bad I'm leaving them open- also in the vain hope it coaxes baby out!)

WhisperMen Tue 26-Nov-13 16:14:47

today I have had the unending joy of feeling like I really need a wee but I can't actually pee. what is the bloody point of that?!

ipswichwitch Wed 27-Nov-13 15:42:57

Heartburn got so bad last night I vomited in the bathroom sink (couldn't make the toilet)
My snoring is reaching earthquake inducing levels and poor DH ended up sleeping on the floor in DSs room - I thought he was exaggerating as usual until I tried having a nap earlier and couldn't actually sleep because I kept waking myself up with the hideous snorting.
Then I coughed and weed myself a bit.
Will the glamour never end??!!??!!

WhisperMen Wed 27-Nov-13 16:27:40

my feet are now so bloody swollen thanks to water retention that socks are painful and uncomfortable to wear. I now have christmas pudding shapes indented in my blobs where my feet used to be.

ooh ipswich heartburn is the worst. I regularly wake myself up snoring, luckily DP could sleep though a nuclear attack so he isn't bothered by it grin

sprite25 Wed 27-Nov-13 17:58:30

Can I please join in? 38+3 weeks and I'm so done with being pregnant. I thought I would love being off on maternity leave but just feel bored and lonely yet feel stressed out when I know people are coming round to visit. Have done some manic cleaning but it totally knackers me out and despite feeling tired all day I can't sleep through the night. I will cry with relief the day I no longer have heartburn and have DH asking 'does it actually hurt you down there then?' every time I wince in pain cos baby is wriggling and it feels like she's trying to bite/claw her way through my bits. If one more person tells me that I will be so much more tired when baby is here and that I should ENJOY this last bit of pregnancy, I will stab them with their own bloody smug comments!

MsFiremanSam Wed 27-Nov-13 18:15:01

You ladies have my total sympathy. Those last few weeks are utter HELL. Anyone who says it's harder once the baby is here is mad - it is MUCH easier! You can move around, see your toes, walk upstairs without bursting into tears (maybe that one was just me).
DD is 15 weeks now, I'm pretty much back to normal (except the last stone of weight), exercising and chasing DS around the garden again - it's great! Plus DD is such a lovely little bundle of squishyness, it was all worth it! To the point where I gave considered doing it all again...! Pregnancy sucks but giving birth is like crack cocaine for me.
Hang in there ladies - the end is nigh!

LittlePeaPod Thu 28-Nov-13 06:55:10

Yeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaa...... I managed to sleep right through (11.30pm till 6.30am). That's the most sleep u have had in about 2 weeks.... grin.

Need to celebrate these little wins.... grin

Blondie276 Thu 28-Nov-13 08:37:26

Morning all!
Hoping someone can cheer me up this morning. I have now TOTALLY had enough. 39+5 and losing all sense of rational thinking as in constant pain with spd as well as the normal uncomfort from pregnancy! Could hardly even move to go to bed last night and have hardly slept as every position is agony. The thought if another potential 2 weeks is making me really miserable and doesn't seem unlikely as I have had no signs of imminent labour.
Moaaaaaaaaaan sad

WhisperMen Thu 28-Nov-13 10:53:33

<high fives littlepeapod > VICTORYYYYYY! grin

<offers blondie some cheese on toast and a chocolate digestive> Poor you, sounds like you're having a bit of a rubbish time.

kchapper5 Thu 28-Nov-13 11:34:59

35 + 3 tiredest person ever.
massively had enough I can NOT do this for potentially another 7 weeks.
7 weeks sad

WhisperMen Thu 28-Nov-13 11:38:49

you can do it k! <waves pom poms>

LittlePeaPod Thu 28-Nov-13 14:33:06

Thanks Whisper. How are you getting on with the swelling today? Better I hope

Blondies flowers. Chin up. It's not long now..

On a separate note. I have just been to Sainsburys and whilst minding my own miserable business at self check out, one of the sales girls walks up to me. Unexpected and out of the blue she touches my bump whilst saying "ohhhh when are you due, I am due in April". I felt like saying "why the fuck don't you just fuck right off and don't touch me" angry. I am not public bloody property! angry

WhisperMen Thu 28-Nov-13 14:39:27

It's just as bad today i'm afraid sad my feet are so puffy.

argh I hate it when people touch me. I want to headbutt them.

Felix90 Thu 28-Nov-13 14:44:56

Eughhh why do people think it's ok to touch? Luckily due to my SPD I've not really left the house for ages and avoided the general public trying to touch me! If they did I would probably punch them.

WhisperMen Thu 28-Nov-13 14:56:52

one woman shouted to me from the other side of the road to stop for a second. She then made me wait 5 minutes while she got across the road and then rubbed my belly. I had no idea who she was and she just said "sorry, I just really need some luck today" and hurried off. I was so baffled by it I didn't react until I was back at home. People are weird.

Felix90 Thu 28-Nov-13 15:00:27

Hahahaha what on earth?!

LittlePeaPod Thu 28-Nov-13 15:05:25

Felix I think I may stop going out to avoid the public. I threw the woman a nastiest look I could muster..

Whiper that made me laugh out loud..... WTF, just for some luck!! confused!

WhisperMen Thu 28-Nov-13 15:59:12

Yup, apparently rubbing a pregnant ladies belly gives you good luck hmm I'm not a fucking buddah!

LittlePeaPod Thu 28-Nov-13 16:01:35

How much luck do you think people have if they walk away with a black eye? confused. I hate these old wife's BS tails there I go getting angry for no real reason grin

Blondie276 Thu 28-Nov-13 16:39:28

You have all made me giggle with these last few posts so thank you!!!! Cheered me right up! I'm glad it's not just be with fustrated pregnancy rage and emotional haywire!!
The end is somewhere round the corner so I know it won't be long! Just had a bloody job interview today as well so luck surely must be coming my way at some point!
Hope your all having a good day ( as much as you can be anyway!) and thank you for making me smile smile

WhisperMen Thu 28-Nov-13 17:00:53

I had a bath to try and ease my back ache and now I have crampy pains. typical. angry

everythinghippie29 Thu 28-Nov-13 18:03:09

The woman on the till in Co-Op told me my 'bump looks fake'. I'm not sure if she was implying that I was trying to shop lift a melon or really what her point was.

Realistically I feel I deserve a medal for not battering her using aforementioned and very real, giant bump! I was feeling quite upset having just had my m/w appointment and being told that little man still isn't engaged at 39 weeks sad

On the plus side DP just brought home flowers just because and has suggested we order Indian. Yummmmeh!

Hope you all have a comfier night ladies. thanks

SPD is killing me sad sad sad
Got a proper waddle going on! Parked about 300m away from school today and struggled to walk back! shock

MatryoshkaDoll Thu 28-Nov-13 21:14:05

I cannot cannot cannot fucking STAND people being in the kitchen at the same time as me when I'm at work.

If I see it's empty I'll take the opportunity to make a cup of tea and inevitably two or three people will come in and start pissing around, getting in my way.

For some reason I feel massively territorial over this space. If someone else comes in I have to leave and wait till they've gone before I can go back and finish what I'm doing.

How are you all doing today? It's seems today my thing is constantly needing a pee but when I actually go.....there's nothing there... Not frustrating at all!! hmm

MatryoshkaDoll Fri 29-Nov-13 12:17:46

Yes to the peeing thing.

Had a MW appointment this morning. I love hearing that heartbeat smile
STBDD is measuring one centimetre longer than she should be at this stage. So she's a long one.

Had a terrible night's sleep last night. Woke up at 4am for no reason at all and couldn't get back to sleep because of achy hips and crushed diaphragm making it hard to breathe.

Today I want to eat all the food in the world.

34 + 3

LittlePeaPod Fri 29-Nov-13 13:55:18

Matry oh feeling for you in the sleep. I have suffered with insomnia on and off. It's awful... flowers

MatryoshkaDoll Fri 29-Nov-13 14:00:20

Sucks doesn't it? Why, when my body needs sleep more than ever, does it insist on waking me up at 4am every day?

On the up side I got in from work last night and DP was half way through putting together the chest of drawers for the baby. God, my nesting urges have been so strong I could've sat on his face out of gratitude and joy at that moment in time.

Then he tipped me over the edge by saying 'shall we paint the bedroom this weekend?'. Music to my ears.

Oh, please can I join in? So far week 38 of pregnsncy has brought me:

-A twisted ankle (thanks loose ligaments, just when I thought running after a 2 year old couldn't get any harder)
-crushing exhaustion, but my hips ache, belly seizes up and heartburn strikes when I lie down. And then I'm stuck for ages like a beached whale trying to adjust my position through grunting, grimacing and desperate lunging.
-vomiting in the morning, followed by a day of nausea

I want this to end, but the thought of going through labour followed by looking after a newborn (and toddler) while I'm this wretched is terrifying!

MatryoshkaDoll Fri 29-Nov-13 14:15:38

I'm so exhausted I can't imagine ever having the energy to give birth.

MatryoshkaDoll Fri 29-Nov-13 14:16:19

cake to everyone btw!

WhisperMen Fri 29-Nov-13 14:25:55

37+1 and still no baby <scowls> I'm exhausted today but dutifully bouncing on the exercise ball.
discovered today that sainsbury's is closing today until the 9th Dec due to refurbishment stuff. It is the only supermarket near us, all of the others require an expensive taxi ride. FFS! How am I meant to eat now?!

OnlyThePurpleOnes Fri 29-Nov-13 19:09:10

Signing up to pregnant-miseries-R -us. 33 weeks (is that all!?) feel tight, lumpy, nauseous, hungry, and planet-like. Small objects are starting to orbit me. I have my own gravitational field. And I'm pretty sure I'm being a total bitch to everyone. My first pregnancy was a dream - I'm not too sure what's happened this time around, but I'm more than ready to be done.

LittlePeaPod Sat 30-Nov-13 19:53:38

So I am back for a good moan! The nurserybisnfinally ready. Yeaaa so today I decided to clean it and start moving her in... Cleaned and disinfected everything and got a few bits in there (notvyet finished). Well you would think I had been getting sucker punched in my lower back y Mike Tyson my back is so so so sore!!! sad

LittlePeaPod Sat 30-Nov-13 19:54:08

That should be "the nursery is finally finished"

Felix90 Sat 30-Nov-13 19:56:42

Currently suffering with heartburn from hell confused AHHHHHHH

LittlePeaPod Sat 30-Nov-13 20:03:52

Felx flowers for the heartburn. Its pants!

yogafan Sat 30-Nov-13 20:17:27

Grrrr heartburn. I've been having it on and off for a while now, every time I think it's shifted the bugger returns. Yesterday it was teamed with reflux, actually being sick, and nausea. Nice. Felt like my whole upper torso was on fire, like being burned by sick.
I've also started to itch - not all over so hopefully not a liver problem, but just enough to be SO ANNOYING! Seeing midwife tomorrow so will moan to her...
Hope you all have a bit of respite from these monstrous symptoms tonight, fingers crossed...

Blondie276 Sat 30-Nov-13 21:08:49

Hello all! Ok ots my due date today- and not a whimper or sign of anything happening so officially late now- and my nov baby is now not!
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ( and owwwwwww) is all I have to say!
Had the daily fustrated cry this morning so bring on tmrw......

WhisperMen Sat 30-Nov-13 23:04:08

ouch ouch fuckity ouch. I have been having backache and period pains all day and they're getting worse. Paracetamol and a bath have done sod all sad

quackojuliet Sat 30-Nov-13 23:14:48

Whisper, could it be early labour? Maybe get checked out if its getting worse...

WhisperMen Sat 30-Nov-13 23:21:11

I think I am going to try having a nap and seeing if it kicks off or not. I figure if it is real labour then I'll be woken up and if it's nothing then least I will have had some sleep.

NomDeClavier Sat 30-Nov-13 23:27:05

sad whisper

I shall join in with the general uncomfiness and beached whale feeling. 36+5 I think, I stopped counting, it was too depressing.

quackojuliet Sat 30-Nov-13 23:27:36

Good thinking batman. I just reread your op and see you are past 37 wks - good luck!

LittlePeaPod Sun 01-Dec-13 06:37:44

Oh Whisper just read your update. I ad (still have a little bit) awful back ache yesterday following a marathon nursery spring clean. I totally sympathise. Hope you are feeling a bit better.

yogafan Sun 01-Dec-13 14:00:50

Oh whisper, good luck.

Shall we add 'mindfuck of balancing imminent possibility of labour with weeks and weeks more waiting' to the list?

WhisperMen Sun 01-Dec-13 15:12:25

yes yes we shall yoga grin
