I am really starting to struggle. Not sleeping well (general discomfort, very swollen feet, numb hands, snoring, dribbling, burping .......) so very tired. No energy. 37wks today and a week left to work. So much that i wanted to have done and haven't done any of it!

First baby? Relax, do all the stuff you won't be able to do soon - cinema, beauty stuff, walking out of the house on a whim at 7pm, long relaxing meals etc etc

Subsequent baby? You just have to get through it. I found heavily pregnant with a 2 year old really really tough and you have my sympathies flowers

can you have a phased departure from work? My last two weeks I just worked mornings which was helpful. Keeping busy helped too

I have no tips but I just wanted to say I feel your pain. 37+3 with DC2 with another week of work to go and I'm struggling.

If it's any consolation I found the 37th week the worst (after morning sickness phase). I'm 39+6 now and don't feel anywher near as bad as that week
