24 weeks and regretting swapping my heels for trainers.

Wanting to burn my elasticated waist band skirt, as I've worn it to many times.

I'm 8 weeks and feeling very unattractive.

Have showered twice in last 6 days. And haven't brushed teeth yet today. Too busy wrapped around the loo.

Does that count? I wanna be 24 weeks!!!

Being sick will definitely make you feel like crap sad

It was pointed out to me that every time i move i make a noise lol

True enough he is right whether we're in the car going over a speed bump or in bed and trying to get comfortable through the night.

No wonder i cant get my wicked way lol

..... oh and my tummy is so rock hard it makes it so difficult to shave my legs let alone down below sad

I often feel the need to freshen up and put and 2nd clean pair of knickers on for the day.

36 weeks. Waddling and covered head to toe in stretch marks. I've never been so exhausted in my life and it's showing!

Clothes wise, if it's not leggings it's not happening!

This baby had better not keep me waiting!!

Oh both of you are doing so well. I'm so envious. Although I'm envious of anyone who can stand up at the moment.

I look comedy bad - filthy old tracksuit, bra constantly dangling round my neck because too tight, hair in revolting bun held up by pair of tights, unbrushed teeth (makes me gag), and lips and skin around nose all peeling from dehydration. And when I do have to walk, I do it in a bend over shuffle. There ain't NOTHING glowing here.

Oh dear... i remember how depressing stretch marks made me the first time round.

Itchy and red and ugly, and so high up on my tummy.... I'm really hoping that I am ALL stretched out and don't get any this time. They do fade but I'm sure it took a good 6mths to a year.

I'm anaemic so they have me in iron tablets 3 times a day, so again i sympathise with the feeling tired, dizzy and lack of energy all the time.

I too have been told I'm waddling WTF I'm 24 weeks I was hoping not to waddle like a duck until another 2 months at least.

I'm sure I wouldn't waddle if I put my heels back on sad

26 weeks and I've gained a stone. I feel very unattractive. Driving my car under the carport and then not being able to squeeze out of the gap was a particular low point. I had to have a word with my dh and 5 yo dd yesterday. Dh keeps referring to my bump as 'your size'. As in 'you couldn't get out of the car due to your size'. And dd, bless her, keeps rubbing my tummy and saying 'aw it is getting big mummy'. I've told them the only acceptable words are 'your bump is beautiful'.

I'm bursting out of my bra and yet I still haven't got round to replacing it with a bigger size.

I get nagged out every day to drink more Water and to take my iron and Vitamin D.

Getting out of the car is so hard. Surely this should happen in the last few days not at 24wks.

Yesterday the pain in my hips was so bad from sitting on the sofa after work. I went to bed at 7.40!

I must be a joy to be around.

9 weeks and a mess already...

Skype call to my dad earlier 'Jesus, I thought you were supposed to be glowing with pregnancy? You look rough!!...'

Cheers dad, can always rely on him for a pep talk! wink

I'm 36 weeks and my husband now calls me 'Rotundo'...... hmm

I'm 19 weeks and still waiting for a 'glow'!! My skin is really dull and spotty...not exactly the bloom of pregnancy!
