Hi all, I'm currently 33 weeks pregnant and keep having the usual low pains but also been getting a burning sensation in the private area when these pains occur. I've been having back ache & Braxton Hicks more frequently the last few weeks too. This is my 5th baby but anybody would think it's my first, I've had nothing but niggley annoying pains the last weeks and feel like I've no more room left in my tummy, specially compared to my 4 previous pregnancies each of those had their issues but they were a breeze compared to this. I've also noticed last few days that I can be doing anything from sitting down or just standing by the car and I'll be hit with a dizzy spell or I can be walking around town and need to sit down because I suddenly can no longer stand up. I had the sitting issue with my last pregnancy but never had dizzy spells.

I'm with you, this is my 3rd and I'm feeling much more pregnant this time round! Now 35 weeks and currently struggling with very swollen vulval area, not varicose veins but very engorged, itchy and uncomfortable. So if anyone has any tips, I'd love to hear them! Not long now though for either of us.

Bless ya, it's a nightmare. I dunno if it's because this time I'm meant to be expecting a girl but I feel so crappy. I just wish these weeks would hurry up now.

I know, it's rubbish isn't it! And I feel so lame, I'm not used to being so symptomatic, I rarely get at all poorly and breezed through the previous pregnancies with no problems at all.

I am 26 weeks with my fifth, and definitely my last! I have an awful itchy rash all over my legs and arms that the doctor thinks could be liver related or could be just "one of those things" (we are talking so itchy I'm making myself bleed and being driven to the brink of insanity by it). Heartburn is literally killing me (although Dr has prescribed omeprazole at last), blood pressure will not get under control no matter how many different pills they put me on and babies movements are all so low I swear she is literally kicking me in the groin.

Why did I think another baby was a good idea????

Haha same with the kicking down there, gets to a point where I can't walk properly. I keep getting to a point where I think is this the moment and then nothing lol. I had a terrible hand rash with all my boys specially in colder weather, I litreally tore my hands to shreds, I couldn't even use hand creams to help ease the pain and then I had terrible sore throat right at the end. I am beggining to wonder why on earth I decided to have another, I think for me it's been that desperation of wanting a girl after 4 boys, just wish I could have skipped the pregnancy though.
