My back hurts, my hips hurt, walking is painful and other than sitting or lying down I am in this pain.

5 weeks left, I'm ready tomorrow. I just hope they're not late!! Baby is getting heavy, I'm suffering with swollen ankles and fingers (not uncommon for me in the weather but still).

I have loved being pregnant don't get me wrong but I just feel like baby is cooked now, it's time to make an appearance lol.

I'm 35 weeks and feels the same. Just take every day as it comes and try to enjoy the calm now before the big day arrives!

I'm nearly done at work so can cope with that for a few more days before maternity leave. I'm supposed to be out next weekend and feel like I just want to hibernate once work is done!

I'm so insanely excited to meet my baby and just want them here. I feel like I've been huge for ages and I haven't at all lol. Think I'm just tired, I've not slept through the night for bloody ages. Three times I got up for a wee and it was full on big wee every time last night lol

I've 6 weeks left and feel the same I went shopping today with DS we were out for 3.5 hours and ended up getting a taxi home! Poor DS had to help me carry bags upstairs he's only 4 but even he could see I couldn't manage sad

I'm so ready to be done with pregnancy it's so much harder this time round for me.

I already feel like that and I'm only 31 weeks. My hips and back are agony. I can't sleep. Everything hurts, I can't walk, paracetamol doesn't touch the pain. Enough! I'm no good at having babies, I'm just not built for it. NEVER AGAIN!

Im about ready now lol. I've had a better day today and did sleep through which is great. I think I want a winter pregnancy next time. There will be a next time, or at least I hope there will, but I don't want an August baby again. I know it's not as easy as that and bloody hell it took us long enough to get there with this one, but I would do anything to avoid this weather while preggers again!

Once summer hols kick in I'm going into hibernation lol

I'm 39+4 weeks and hate to say the last bit is the longest... The waiting game is no fun! Sorry!
I feel your pain on the swollen hands though, it only started this week for me, giant sausage fingers and whenever I wake up they have terrible pins and needles. Very bizarre!

I am 39+2 stopping work at 37 didn't help.

Have spent the last 3 weeks aching everywhere. Prlvis, hips, back. Can't sit, can't stand, can't lie down, climb stairs without pain. Turning over in bed is a mission! Feels like I have a bowling ball constantly between my legs!

Highly recommend a pregnancy massage if you can find someone my lady is fab.

Sorry - gets better eventually! Heat yesterday wiped me out. Toddler not helping!

My body didn't ache as such but my now 9mo ds kicked me inside out for the last 2 months of pregnancy, it was agony. Every single minute of the day and night he was having some kind of party and I was in tears for most of it. DH said he could still see him kicking when I was actually giving birth to him BOAK

31 weeks here and SO DONE. I'm falling apart! Pelvis is destroyed. Never ever again.

Also people had said pregnancy + small toddler is a nightmare but the reality is grimmer than I imagined. I just flat out can't manage a lot of the time. Literally counting the days.....

fruityb Sun 17-Jul-16 09:52:34

Eek!! My baby wakes up morning and night and a little bit in between. It was quite sweet in the night when I was semi awake and could feel my other half feeling for baby kicking. That makes it all better smile

I'm soaking in the bath again which does make a difference. And I know I'll be in full on relax mode come Thursday, but good lord in between is tough!!

Midwife on Wednesday, I might have a little cry. She's so lovely and really supportive. Have been to physio with my hips but there's really not a lot they could do as its all hormonal. My OH has massages fairly frequently as he's sporty so I might book in there when little one arrives.

Have had to remove engagement ring as fingers are also like sausages and I don't want it being cut off one day. Going to go get it cleaned properly while I can't wear it smile

No find a specialist in pregnancy massage and have one now. Mine does it while I lie on my side it really really does help. I had lots of hip pelvis back issues after first bubba and my massages this time just one a month since 5 months have really helped.

fruityb Sun 17-Jul-16 11:45:42

I'll do that then! Thanks for the advice. I'm fine once I'm up and about in all honesty but night time and evenings when I've been busy all day are quite uncomfortable. After Thursday my sleep patterns can go off track if needed as I won't be at work but the next few days will be tricky!
