Is anyone else around the 5 month mark feeling crap

I feel fat (not because of baby bump, because I've been eating too much and not exercising probably!), my face is literally twice it's previous size, I am CONSTANTLY covered in spots and therefore am not applying any make up. I no longer look good in my leggings (thighs blown up too) and I have NO suitable clothes!

I can't afford to do any maternity clothes shopping at present and I'm wondering around looking like a tramp.

And I also feel exhausted ALL THE TIME! Struggle to get out of bed in the mornings and am falling asleep by 3pm, in bed by 7 and sleep the whole way through. Anyone else???

I am 5.5 months, I have a kidney infection and have had a cold for the last three weeks. I feel so tired and crap it is unbelievable. I have bought maternity clothes and am not paying attention to my thighs, I think that helps a bit. Perhaps going for a walk and taking on board more water and vitamins might help? Sorry you are feeling so shit!

Sorry you're feeling so rubbish! It's crap isn't it, I feel like my body has fallen apart on me.

Can you afford to buy a belly extender to fit into your existing trousers? Also, eBay is good for maternity bits if you know vaguely what you're looking for. I've found jeans on there for £5 before.
