Later pregnancy - when did you start feeling you are really pregnant?

Ok so to be honest this pregnancy has been pretty good so far. I didnt have any sickness in the first trimester (or second) and have generally felt quite 'normal'.
My first pregnancy nearly two years ago was pretty much the same although I think I may have felt more tired in the early stages. I think part of it is because I now have a toddler so just have to muck on with it but now at nearly 26 weeks I am finding I can't walk too far before my feet start aching or I need to empty the water works. I also find going into town a chore now and don't think I will be doing much more of that.
I always have a nap at lunchtime as does DD and would be exhausted if I didn't.

So I think now its really kicking in - one week off my third trimester.
How about you?

What are you still doing/given up doing?

Hmm had terrible sickness with both pregnancies until about 12 weeks so slept through most of the first trimester...

I'm 20 weeks now and refurbishing my home so that's taking a toll on my back, I'm trying to cram as much as possible in before I start feel quite pregnant which is normally around 25 weeks for me!

THe huge amount of stairs in my house is taking its toll...I'm close on collapsing at the top, especially when carrying my one year old....I nearly just tossed him to the top earlier so I could stop for breath!

Same here Yellow, smile we live in a top floor flat (two stairs to climb) I also have a toddler who I have to carry up if she refuses to walk them but thankfully she usually does it herself now! Dreading when baby comes and I have the two of them! smile
