Im hot, tired, bored of it all. And im not even 30 bloody weeks yet. This is pregnancy no.2, and dd is 2 1/2 and ever so understanding bless her.

I just want it to be October already.

Snap. Only 24 weeks so can't even winge apparently, however much I want to!!!
Not that big bump-wise but the floor's awfully far away and stairs are bloody knackering!!!

ThinkIveBeenHacked Sun 20-Jul-14 20:54:44

yy agree about stairs. Thankfully I live in a ground floor flat but at work ive got to negotiate two flights of stairs for the loo sad and am exhausted after a pee.

Are you having trouble with leg shaving yet? I just cant bend the right way anymore. its like im going to squeeze the baby right out.

This pregnancy the baby seems to want to just burrow right at the back of my pelvis which means my back aches loads. However it is preferable to dds desire to nestle up in my rib cage and cause so much agony as my ribcage would stretch to accomodate her.

Same! 14 weeks seems so long! My bump is very big already I just don't know how I'm going to cope with getting bigger for 14 more weeks!

ithoughtofitfirst Mon 21-Jul-14 08:05:52

Can I join for a moan? 12 weeks to go sad meeeeehh

ThinkIveBeenHacked Mon 21-Jul-14 08:41:50


Sleep is eluding me at the moment - the heat and discomfort are not a good mix. I think I woke a good five times last night.

I remember when dd was born, I actually had better sleep than the last few weeks of my pregnancy.

DownstairsMixUp Mon 21-Jul-14 08:48:36

Yep. I've got just under 6 weeks to go and I've well and truly had enough. I'm fat,tired, hot and his feet are wedged under my ribs. I also managed to be pregnant in summer 2009 (another hot one) clearly my timing isn't good!

MrsMonkeyBear Mon 21-Jul-14 09:09:11

On the 14 week stretch too. Too hot, can't get comfy any where, back ache, SPD..........need I go on!!!! One upside is 35 working days until mat leave!!!

ThinkIveBeenHacked Mon 21-Jul-14 09:16:46

Ooh I might work out my working days too - that will help!

ThinkIveBeenHacked Mon 21-Jul-14 09:17:56

sad 52 for me

SarahMcCxx Mon 21-Jul-14 09:36:41

16 weeks to go! I think this must be the worse part because you're starting to grow quickly and get uncomfortable but there's still a long way to go. Plus people don't think you should be moaning yet because you're not 'massive'!

MrsMonkeyBear Mon 21-Jul-14 09:40:43

I'm starting my mat leave at 34 weeks. It's more of a safety issue than anything else. Can't wait to be lying down all day!!!

duvetfan Mon 21-Jul-14 10:14:06

I have 13 weeks to go to. Its also my second my Ds is 2.2 and not understanding at all. I just want to be on mat leave 10 weeks left). I am just so uncomfortable. Its just dragging this time. The constant worry about movement etc is also tiring..sorry to moan..

FoodieMum3 Mon 21-Jul-14 11:57:32

You're nearly in your third trimester so keep telling yourself that. Once you get there it is so much easier psychologically I find.

Having said that, I'm 32weeks and so jealous when I see a post on here from someone who is 36+ blush

MrsGiraffe12 Mon 21-Jul-14 12:01:33

Can I join the moan too? 33 weeks pregnant, measuring 3 weeks ahead so am massive. Breech baby with a head right in my ribs / lungs so can barely breathe! Also managed to be pregnant in the summer of 2008 (a hot one). Clearly didn't learn my lesson then ;-)

ThinkIveBeenHacked Mon 21-Jul-14 12:03:37

I cannot wait to hit 36 weeks!!! May it fly by.

Dh is a teaching assistant and currently off for the Summer so if today is anything to go by my life wilk get a bit easier over the next few weeks. He got up at seven with dd leaving me to have a lie in and has took her off to the seaside for the day. Im at work 3-11 tonight so ive had a leisurly morning and will have a snooze for an hour now.

He is so good, bless him. He was explaining to dd yesterday how "the baby in mummys tummy makes her feel very tired and it gobbles up all of mummys food so she has to have lots of rest" grin dd was fascinated.

Does anyone know what they are having? This one is a boy which dh is over the moon about as its our last so he says he can "see what its like being a dad to a girl and a dad to a boy". I keep trying to explain that ots probably very very similar til they become teens but we wikl see.

FirsttimerG Mon 21-Jul-14 12:19:32

I am so with you. 11.5 weeks to go - cannot wait or October.
Or a bit of cooler weather (sorry sun seekers)

Gen35 Mon 21-Jul-14 12:44:00

I thought the benefit of the second/subsequent pgs was supposed to be speed, but I'm 30 wks and it's going reealllly slowly...

weebairn Mon 21-Jul-14 12:48:09

I'm with you too. 10 weeks to go, but last baby went a few days over.

I am exhausted from work, exhausted from teething/chickenpox/non-sleeping toddler, have just had a bout of D&V. I don't look any bigger than last time but I don't think I'm as fit and I'm just TIRED. I miss my DP, he is basically doing all the childcare cause I'm so useless and exhausted when I come home from work (i work stressy job on my feet). Last pregnancy he doted on me but he can't do this this time as he is too busy chasing hyperactive toddler, I am so grateful but I miss him.

I finish work Sept 9th and am counting down the days already…

Toddler is only 22 months and doesn't really understand. She hugs my tummy sometimes. But she doesn't understand why I keep lying down…

30 weeks tomorrow which feels somehow better and significant. I am filled with irrational jealousy when I hear about anyone who has a baby early. Keep going keep going...

TheOnlySeven Mon 21-Jul-14 12:50:11

31 weeks here and fed up too. Only upside is my other three were all a month early so I may only have another 4 weeks to go.

TheOnlySeven Mon 21-Jul-14 12:51:29

X-post, sorry weebairn!

Gen35 Mon 21-Jul-14 13:01:15

I know, the chances of me going at 38 wks are really remote as dc1 took 3 days to be coaxed out at nearly 42 wks last time. I'm in denial about there actually being 12 wks left...

MB34 Mon 21-Jul-14 13:11:47

Can I join in with the moaning? Just over 12 weeks left and am really struggling with tiredness and have been since the beginning!
My boss is really not understanding at all (mum of 3 :-/) so have been signed off sick.
DS1 not sleeping through yet - up at least once if not twice a night.
Been having Braxton Hicks since 24 weeks - didn't have any at all on DS1 and they aren't pleasant.
To top it all I've had a cold for the last week so the tiredness has tripled plus it's stopping me sleeping at night.

DS1 is 20 months so doesn't understand and does the same as wee's DD - hugs tummy but doesn't get why he's doing it and god forbid I should sit down for 5 minutes - he's taking my hand and pulling me up to play.

It seems to have gone really fast so far though so am hoping that the next 12 weeks go just as quick.

ithoughtofitfirst Mon 21-Jul-14 14:03:26

This pregnancy has flown to be fair. Plus I've got loads to sort out before they arrive. But I'm still so fed up sad

mrsgembles Mon 21-Jul-14 14:08:25

I'm 34 weeks today. My stomach is pressed so high up it feels like it's in my throat and I haven't slept solidly for more than two hours at a time in weeks. FED UP.
