32 weeks and should I feel bad saying I've had enough now? :-(

I'm 32 wks plus with my 2nd and find I'm hoping baby will be early every day! Feeling soooo uncomfortable with sinus pain that just won't go away, heartburn whether I have eaten or not (I glug Gaviscon from the bottle now), lack of sleep, indigestion and Braxton Hicks. I feel like I can't actually say I don't enjoy pregnancy but I don't blush

First time around I would nap after work whereas this time think I've had about two naps overall. Working FT and a demanding DS to contend with after school. Please tell me it's not just me who feels like this?

You could be me. Except I have no such issues telling anyone willing to listen how crap it is to be pregnant (except my childless friends who are TTC, I don't want to scare them). Even DH tells me he can see I'm fed up already, and he wouldn't notice if I shaved my head and got a facial tattoo.

Console yourself you are one week nearer the finish line than me.

Glad it's not just me! It's just no fun. I just want to sleep and have my body back without any aches and pains

CrispsCrispsCrisps Thu 28-Apr-16 16:00:11

And not have to live in compression tights anymore!

i hear you.

30 weeks. the dreaded sickness is back, bad cough lately, absolutely knackered doesnt even come close, despite sleeping like a log at night. the school run is like doing a marathon. i could sit n cry, stopped working aaggeess ago, in early stages due to spd/pgp/ ......cant wait til its over with. feel awful saying it, took us 4 years to get this baby, had ivf in the end. its just been terrible. 2 children from previous marriage (pus a stillbirth and a miscarriage to add anxiety to the mix) its hard work isnt it.

i read threads from people who are in their early stages and altho its exciting, im so glad im not back there!

not long now ladies, the end is in sight. x

CrispsCrispsCrisps Thu 28-Apr-16 20:44:23

Sickness? I feel for you Bessie :-(

It's hard but you really don't want your baby to be early. My baby was born at 35+5, had a stay in NICU, tube fed, jaundice, erratic body temperature and blood sugar, below the 2nd centile. It sucks being uncomfortable but your baby is where it needs to be, don't wish for it to be early.

bessie84 Fri 29-Apr-16 07:39:55

i dont wish for it to be too early, just look forward to the end. (c-section at 37 weeks due to history and having a BIG baby again)

yesp crisps - the morning (all sodding day) sickness is back in waves. had it most of the way thru. x

Pregnancy is harder than I thought it would be, I'm 28 weeks tomorrow with my first.
See your doctor or pharmacist about getting something for your heartburn. I'm on omeprazole now and it's a life changer I've not suffered from heartburn at all since starting it. Hope the next 8 weeks fly in for you!

TheABC Fri 29-Apr-16 10:24:42

You have my sympathy. 38 weeks here, with a toddler that believes I am a climbing frame. Plus my family has a history of delivering late. I am gritting my teeth for another 4 weeks of it.

GinaBambino Fri 29-Apr-16 10:27:58

flipping heck thank the gods I'm not alone! 34 weeks and I'm fed up now.
easy pregnancy so I have no reason to complain, doesn't stop me from doing so. He has to stay in until June - sister would kill me as she has one of these birthday things where you hook the dates/name underneath each month and they're a ballache to move around grin

I feel for you ladies who've had a rough time, we're nearly there now!

BeauticianNotMagician81 Fri 29-Apr-16 12:20:27

I don't want the baby to be early but my goodness I feel your pain. This is my fourth pregnancy and by far the hardest. I had spd last time & even that I found easier. This time I'm so hormonal it's ridiculous, I'm constantly breathless and need to sit down every five minutes. I don't want to do anything I have zero energy. Also terrible heartburn. If I didn't know from my scan that I'm having my fourth boy I would think this baby is a girl as pregnancy is so different. I think it's possibly just that I'm older now and I have 3 children already to look after.

BeauticianNotMagician81 Fri 29-Apr-16 12:21:29

Oh and I'm only 30 weeks today blush

CatchIt Fri 29-Apr-16 13:45:34

Full sympathy here too. I'm nearly 34 weeks and am really bored of being pregnant.

It's so dull the 2nd time round. Not too long to go now though! <silver lining>

Chlobee87 Fri 29-Apr-16 14:34:44

Another one who can sympathise! I'm 35 weeks now and so ready for this to be over. It's my first baby and I seriously underestimated the stress that pregnancy puts on your body. I thought I was going to love being pregnant and had images of looking lovely and blooming, spending my days relaxing and stroking my bump, with strangers smiling at reality it's really tough. I do get the nice smiles from strangers but was totally unprepared for the unrelenting nausea, crippling SPD, exhaustion, crying at the drop of a hat and just general feeling that my body no longer belongs to me. Don't get me wrong, I'm incredibly lucky and happy to be having a baby but pregnancy itself is not something I'm enjoying. I just don't understand how some women seem to love it, like the lady on TV who has 17 kids I think and says she is addicted to pregnancy. Or people who are surrogates. They deserve a medal.

Miffy1979 Fri 29-Apr-16 14:43:10

Another sympathiser here.. been utterly fed up with being pregnant for ages! I'm at 39 weeks at last.. though going by past experience I've got another 3 weeks of this hell! Crippling SPD, sleepless nights, and barely able to walk, yet having to also look after a 13 month old. It sucks. This is way I'm doing this again! Stopped work at 33 weeks as i was so exhausted.
Can't wait to have a very large whisky once baby is here grin

MagicDucky Fri 29-Apr-16 14:47:34

I'm right there with you OP my first pregnancy was bloody amazing. This time round totally sucks! I'm starting to feel really down. I just want to have this baby, but obviously not really as I'm only 32 weeks!

Have somebrewcake to cheer you up.

CrispsCrispsCrisps Fri 29-Apr-16 16:34:37

Ladies, from all the comments it shows this just isn't easy so hats off to us!

I didn't know I could have Omeprazole so will look into that after the bank holiday. The heartburn is dreadful and draining

frikadela01 Fri 29-Apr-16 16:42:14

30+5 with my first and really feeling it this past week. The heartburn is really getting me down (will look into omeprazole too). Been back at work for 3 days after having 2 week annual leave and my body is just aching. My bump feels really tight and uncomfortable when I'm working. Oh and to top it off with tmi, I'd really like to have sex with my dp or at least be a bit intimate but for the past 2 weeks I've had really horrible snotty discharge that is putting me off.

Hats off to the ladies doing this with kids already on top... its bloody hard.

CrispsCrispsCrisps Fri 29-Apr-16 17:57:33

You're near the end Miffy! Good luck!

Bejeena Fri 29-Apr-16 18:28:30

I hear you. The second pregnancy sucks big time. I am 39+3 now and fed up beyond belief. My first came at 36 weeks so I never got to this stage and oh do I feel like my skin will burst any minute.

However the end is in sight for all of us they won't stay in forever and am sure we'll be enjoying the newborn cuddles before we know it.

Miffy1979 Fri 29-Apr-16 19:28:57

I defo recommend getting omeprazole too. Reflux was killing me, it's nice no longer trying to sleep sitting up!

OhWhatAPalaver Fri 29-Apr-16 20:29:54

Another one here who's getting fed up. I'm 32 weeks as well, bad spd and feeling generally unable to do anything! One good thing is that dd is 4 and is doing quite well with me asking her to do stuff she wouldn't normally do... Hope it lasts!
I'm counting down the days though... Fed up of weeing all the time and getting out of breath going up stairs but it's the lack of mobility that does my head in the most.
I'm eating whatever I want to cheer myself up though, which means lots of cake grin

kiki22 Sat 30-Apr-16 11:32:26

I hate being pregnant hated it the first time too, better pregnancy this time but knowing what I know about birth and newborns not looking forward to that either. I find it restricting long boring and uncomfortable roll on 39 weeks only 16 weeks to go.

RNBrie Sat 30-Apr-16 11:35:24

I was getting through a bottle of Gaviscon every three days and gp now has me on omazrarpole, haven't had to touch the Gaviscon since I started taking it.

This is dc3 and I wish someone had told me about it with the first two!!!
