Hey everyone. Had to make a new thread as we were nearing 1000!

TheLionQueen1 Fri 29-Sep-17 08:01:26

Thanks @mrsjkerry glad someone is organised, I didn't notice grin

lydiangel83 Fri 29-Sep-17 09:30:27

Well done @mrsjkerry I wonder if this’ll be my last threat as due 1/11!!

Just jumping on. I'm 33w with first pregnancy & currently hating life (lighthearted ... ish!). So uncomfortable!

mrsjkerry Fri 29-Sep-17 10:36:46

@lydiangel83 probably!!! And same for me too 😬😬😬

@meltingmarshmallows hello! I am 34 and also verrrrrry uncomfortable. And still sick!!!!

ClaireBear1986 Fri 29-Sep-17 10:45:08

Hello to all the 1st time Mums!!

This is my 1st baby, but I am only 11 weeks today, so still a long way to go.

Hope everyone's pregnancies are going smoothly.

@lydiangel83 no they don't make me feel sick just fed up off taking them

Can I join? First time pregnancy too. Only 5+1, so very early days - feeling anxious about...everything!

Hi all, just been catching up. Hope you're all doing well, a lot of us are on the final stretch now. I'm 35 weeks now, can't believe it.
I can sympathise with the ladies struggling with heartburn. It makes me want to be sick 😔
The pressure of this baby on my pelvis and back is crazy. Maternity leave can't come quick enough.

Wow thread 5! This will be my last one... Hopefully we can make a new thread with everyone when babies start to arrive too! It's nice to have people in the same boat to talk to! 37+3 today!

meltingmarshmallows Fri 29-Sep-17 13:16:41

@mrsjkerry Oh no! Poor you on the sickness front

mrsjkerry Fri 29-Sep-17 13:19:03

Agreed @Missonhartbaby. Some of you I have been talking to since last November!

Having a bit of a bad day so probably just that, but I'm feeling like I'm not coping with being pregnant as well as others. Have a massively supportive DH who has been doing all of the cleaning and housework etc. But I feel as though all I do is moan and complain. I wouldn't want to be around me at the moment.

Feels like baby has dropped these past few days and I'm so uncomfortable, the thought of doing this for 7 or 9 more weeks is awful. Also have PGP which is just a bit relentless. If I go out and do something I can guarantee the next day I'll struggle.

Sorry to be moany but just wondering if anyone else feels like this sometimes! I know I've got a while to go too and really sympathise with all the ladies who are overdue and waiting for labour to start on this board.

@meltingmarshmallows I feel like all I do is moan, I'm incredibly grateful to be pregnant but the restless legs and heartburn that keep me up all night is starting to get me down, I keep getting pain in my ribs, my other half said I've got another 6 weeks to moan to my hearts content,

meltingmarshmallows Fri 29-Sep-17 13:44:53

@ew1990 Ah that doesn't sound fun! I think that's it, I'm so grateful and happy. But it's hard not to let it get to you, especially with lack of sleep!

lydiangel83 Fri 29-Sep-17 13:47:49

I’ve been on this thread since March! Shall we start a new mums thread as placeholder once babies start arriving!!

ew1990 Fri 29-Sep-17 14:06:15

@lydiangel83 I think we should

lydiangel83 Fri 29-Sep-17 14:10:02

How about something like ‘new mums from
End 2016?’ Would that cover it?

ew1990 Fri 29-Sep-17 14:18:18

Yeah or first time mums or something,

mrsjkerry Fri 29-Sep-17 16:00:23

We should do “First Time Mothers” As an ode to “First Time Pregnancy”

Missonhartbaby Fri 29-Sep-17 17:58:16

Definitely! Seems crazy that for some of us it's really not long to go now!
I like first time mums 2017 or something. It doesnt really matter as we'll all know what it is anyway!
And @meltingmarshmallows we all like a good moan so I wouldn't worry about it! Haha

Missonhartbaby Fri 29-Sep-17 17:58:51


lydiangel83 Fri 29-Sep-17 18:34:59

Done! Search ‘first time mums’ and you should find it! Don’t know how to copy / paste a link sorry!

mrsjkerry Fri 29-Sep-17 19:03:16
