Late Pregnancy- How Fed Up Are You ?

37 weeks today and just miserable. I have two dd's and I really do not remember feeling soo fed up before. It is like everyday is a struggle- my back is in bits so I can't walk or stand for long. My bump is really sore and I nearly feel claustraphobic at times - the bump takes up so much room. The worst thing is that I don't really expect to feel much better after the baby comes as I have a history of getting infections post natally and the difficult days of getting bf established is looming in my mind. So generally feeling very sorry for myself.

Are there really people who don't find the last few weeks so difficult ?

VERY! I'm 31 weeks today, with dc4. This baby is MUCH bigger than any of my others, and dc3(DS2) was 8lb2. I know this is my last pregnancy, and TBH, I can't bloody wait for this baby to be out. I'm worried about the birth, as I am bigger now at 31 weeks (was by 26 weeks TBH) than I was at 40 weeks with ds2, I'm constantly tired, I have SPD and walking sitting and turning over in bed hurts. I can't manage the housework, I'm still being sick (blooming HG), the dc's are driving me up the wall cos they can't go outside due to the weather. I've had enough, and I've still got 9 weeks to go.

39w today, soooooo fed up. been having tightenings and period type pains on and off for about a week, keep thinking things getting started but doesn't get any worse.
loudlass I've also got SPD and just walking, turning over in bed is such a painful task. can't wait for this baby to be out - could be another almost 3 weeks though - really hope not.sad

31 weeks, so tired, so fed up, can't sleep, cant walk anywhere, nasty pains in my hips, legs, stomach, can't bloody breathe half the time. and I have what? 9-11 weeks of this left?

bigkidsmademe Sun 14-Nov-10 19:20:35

yep me too. 34 today. Wish I could stop work and hibernate in my pyjamas but I can't so I need to trudge on (

So tired and very tearful. Feel very vulnerable and pathetic!

6 weeks to go! Gaaah.

bigkidsmademe Sun 14-Nov-10 19:21:20

Oh that was meant to be a sad not a grin. I do not feel like grinning!

batsforlashes Sun 14-Nov-10 19:33:10

Ok - not just me then. Honestly I can't really complain- it is just these last few weeks that take it out of me. In a strange kind of way I find the weekends more difficult than the school week. I am also aware that this is my last baby so these are the last couple of weeks of being pregnant in my life and feel bad for wishing this away as I am sure I will look back in twenty years and feel nostalgic for these special days...

Bigkidsmademe- I know what you mean about feeling vulnerable- I feel so self conscious when out and about- I am lucky in that I am pretty much finished work so am treating tomorrow as my first day of maternity leave. Hope you don't have too much longer...

For the ladies close to 39 weeks - just think that this time next week you have a very good chance of having had your baby ! Best of luck to everyone

Very. 34 weeks today, like bigkids. Back is agony since I twisted something at the back, I have sciatica, my legs cramp at night, I have horrible trapped wind that is excruciating, my ankles and fingers are getting puffy and my baby is breech, so along with the worry that brings, I also have a burning spot on my bump where his head rests! It was a relative breeze with DS - I can't imagine being pregnant with two young children - one toddler is bad enough.

Due at Christmas, really hoping for a 38 weeker!

Ah good smile somewhere to moan.
I'm 36 weeks, have just come back from a week away at center parcs (had to spend the week in a maternity tankini) with my husband and 5 children.
Got back on Friday and have spent the whole weekend, washing,drying,folding,putting away,cleaning, cooking and supervising homework.
I've got bad spd,ligament pain, can't sleep at night and i'm MASSIVE. Baby is breech and back to back like my 5th was....and i think he'll be about 2 weeks late as most of mine has been. So i'll probably still be pregnant at Xmas despite being due the 14th Dec.
My 6th is most definately my very last grin

bigkidsmademe Sun 14-Nov-10 21:08:37

6th! I'm in awe. My first. I won't complain anywhere other than here though as I've had an easy pregnancy really and I feel too guilty. Spent all evening weeping and picking fights with DH about cleaning. Just want to hide till he comes out!

DuelingFanjo Sun 14-Nov-10 21:16:42

I'm only 36 weeks and fine. I think I must be really lucky because I see so many other people with all sorts of late pregnancy issues which I am yet to suffer from.

redandyellowandpinkandgreen Sun 14-Nov-10 22:00:53

I'm 40 weeks and okay really but then I'm not doing much and this is my first so no other little ones to worry about!

CJMommy Sun 14-Nov-10 22:01:48

Nearly 35 weeks. Been lucky and had a very good pregnancy, taking out all the normal stuff like agonising heartburn, sciatica and going to the loo every ten mins!! Have just developed a vile cold though and frequent sneezing in my condition is not good blush

pinkyp Sun 14-Nov-10 22:07:55

i'm 38+3 days and have been fed up since about 34 weeks. My little boy (3) isnt sleeping too well either atm so i'm looking forward to baby coming but dreading how little sleep i'll get when he's here

39 weeks and pissed off. I thought my waters had gone yesterday, but MW says not. Have SPD, a return of morning sickness and feel tired, grumpy and MAHOOSIVE! I am so tempted to cave in and ask for a section (had one last time and been told can have another if I want), just to get it over and done with. I am so grumpy. I just want to yell at everyone and everything. Roll on baby being here. I know I shouldn't complain, but seriously I am just so FED UP!

ThatllDoPig Tue 16-Nov-10 14:40:58

It is vile. You all have my sympathies ladies. I think it is natures way of making us want to get on with the birth.
I've only just hit the third trimester and am already feeling huge, tired, achey and fed up. But aware that I just CAN'T start moaning yet. So long to go!

lexxity Mon 22-Nov-10 17:12:37

40 weeks tomorrow and I didn't cave. I'm hoping that the back pain and tightening is actually the latent phase. I bloody hope so.

The hospital have said they'll let me go 10 days over before breaking my waters, but they won't let me be induced otherwise and it'll be another section. Part of me says, just get it over and bloody done with, part of me says no hang on in there.

Grump, grump, moan, moan.

I feel like shite. I am 30 weeks with a twin pregnancy and am the size of a submarine already (both babies measuring over the scale for singletons in last scan!). Got SPD which I agree is terribly painful even for silly things like walking up the stairs/getting out of bed. Plus sciatica and terrible back pains. No sleep with all the tossing and turning either. I think it's because I am so housebound that the worst part is lonliness and boredom. I have a 2.5 year old who also uses me as a human climbng frame! Only 7 weeks to go for me though - cannot wait but clearly will be wishing for the halcyon days of pregnancy then!!
