Just a quick whinge tonight...

29 weeks pregnant
Baby's movements are starting to take my breath away
Iron is low so I'm exhausted (waiting for the tablets to kick in!)
Not sleeping more than a few hours each night
Can't get in a comfortable position to sit or lie down EVER!
Tummy is starting to feel heavy and like I'm lugging myself around
Maternity leave feels a loooong way off!

And I still have 11 weeks to go grin

Don't get me wrong I'm over the moon to be pregnant! We all can't wait until the little one is here. I just had a vision of my beautiful glowing pregnant self when we started TTC and the reality is somewhat different.

I feel you! Nearly 33 weeks with #2, raging heartburn, pgp, back ache, plus exhausted from looking after my 1 year old all day! Roll on the next 7 weeks!

@Countingsheeeep thanks for you!
33 weeks is great though, well done!
I have a DSD so know what you mean about having someone else to look after, although she's older and more independent, I can't imagine feeling like this and having a one year old. I hope the next 7 weeks go quickly for you smile

Me three!
26 weeks with surprise number 5. Heartburn - tick. SPD - tick. Starting to feel heavy - tick. Baby taking up space I'd like to use for breathing -
tick. Trying to work out how I have another 3 months to get through... sad

But enjoying feeling him/her move, and loving the interest and excitement from the older ones

@Needmorehands the movements are fab aren't they smile I still do a little smile when I feel him/her waking up and stretching then wriggling to get comfy! I said to DH last night that I'm starting to get my head round it being an actual baby in there!

39 weeks here and I'm so there with you.
Low iron-tick
No breathing space-tick
Stomach is basically in my throat-tick
Heartburn/indigestion after eating drinking absolutely anything-tick
Needing a wee every half hour-tick
Painful ligaments in my groin-tick

I'm grateful to be pregnant after a previous miscarriage and knowing what others go through but I'm just so ready for my baby to be here now

I feel your pain!

37 weeks here with SPD and poor sleep, baby likes playing football with my ribs too. I feel like I've been pregnant almost forever.

Baby was very very much wanted though so I feel like i can't moan too much.

38 weeks, back to back baby but at least not breech, anaemia and I've got a 3rd UTI which is painful. Unsurprisingly I'm feeling a bit fed up today and am hoping the baby put in an appearance soon.

Not yet 20 weeks and stuff hurts already. Try some Spatone. It's more readily absorbed than tablets and doesn't make you constipated.
