Hi everyone

I am new here. I am currently 21 +1 with teij girls. My pregnancy so far has been pretty hectic due to having a thyroid issue and in my last pregnancy I had pre eclampsia so I'm pretty much at the hospital every 2 weeks for checks. I told everyone that asked I felt fine which I did up until 2 weeks ago my blood pressure went up high and i was put on bed rest for 2 weeks to get bring it down and it did come down but I feel physically exhausted the past 2 weeks walking is an issue as I get out of breath as they are really high up in my abdomen my back hurts my tummy aches alot. I was wondering when other people went on maternity leave? I was planning on 31 weeks but having two toddlers at home and a partner who acts like a toddler and working fulltime is proving difficult lol. Thanks xx

I was going to go at 31 weeks but got signed off with exhaustion at 24...I would really recommend seeing gp as it's tough going, this heat won't help plus with blood pressure concerns? Not worth pushing yourself xx

I finished work at 30 weeks, babies were born at 34 weeks

I also finished at 30 weeks, but actually could have gone on a few weeks longer. I had a very straightforward (for twins) pregnancy though.

I finished at 30 weeks, I was knackered by then and the tiredness just suddenly lifted as soon as I started maternity leave!
