36 weeks now and bored!!! This is DC2 and as I'm 42 it will be my last - I hope. Things have been very different compared to DD1 pregnancy five years ago...

Morning sickness - I ate for England with DD1 and put on 4 stone. This time round I've put on 2 stone and spent most of the first 20 weeks gripping the loo.

Exercise - too tired first time thus time still managing 3/4 gym visits a week. But feel less tired this time round. So glad I did give up with 1st pg as it was and is the only chance ill ever get to put my feet up!! Still lost the 4 stoned within 5 months though.

DH - freaked out by last pregnancy (planned) freaked out by this pg (also planned) bless him

Health - no problems at all last pg. with this one I've had to have a CVS (came out clear) 2x emergency hospital admissions with bleed.

Baby - another DD! Feel her loads more than with DD1. She's kicking my ribs as I write and I've seen her toes thru my tummy. This did not happen with DD1

Gosh, how interesting that they are so different. Also encouraging to hear that my DH is not the only one freaking out....

Glad you're feeling better now and good luck for the final stretch!
