I’m 31 weeks. Still suffering hyperemesis. Thankfully not being sick often but terribly queasy. Struggling to sleep as I have to keep getting up for a wee. I have mild spd which is ok as long as I don’t do anything but gets bad if I try and do too much walking. I have had an upset tummy for the last 3 days. I am so tired and fed up now. Not sure how I will manage the next couple of months. The baby is moving well but I’m not enjoying that much this time either as it really hurts sometimes when it kicks me.
Not long now then a2inthehouse I have a 2 year old so I know what you mean about not relaxing although we have watched far too much tv. It is definitely lovely to be in single figures when I think about how many weeks I’ve got left. Although I try not to think about that too often.
Hotchocolate86 sounds really hard going, hang in there, it probably feels like the next 2 months will never pass but like pp says the countdown is on. Are you quite organised with everything for baby? Can you find something to focus on to try and pass the time?
Hi merrzz I think we are sorted for baby as we still have most things from my 2 year old. There is a fair bit id like to do in the house (decluttering to create space mostly) but that has to be taken on a day to day basis depending on how I feel. I enjoy sewing so I am hoping I will be able to manage a bit more of that to pass some of the time. Thank you for your reply.
@Hotchocolate86 I feel the exact same. This week I turned 37 weeks pregnant and bam everything has hit me at once, tiredness, mild to severe SPD in my lower back/right hip, constant pressure on my bladder caused by babies head being engaged. I cried nearly all day yesterday in pain and the delivery suite said it’s spd just take paracetamol and relax -.- paracetamol did not help the pain! I still have it now! My baby has become very active which sometimes is not great especially when he plays with my bladder! I didn’t think it could really get this bad before labour starts
Awww gem that sounds horrible too. It’s lovely to have an active baby but it can be so uncomfortable at times. I hate moaning so I’m trying to keep bright and cheery round other people but some days it’s hard!
I’m also trying not to moan, but I’m 34 weeks and my reflux is so bad. I’m on holiday so can’t get a prescription from my GP for more omeprazole. Everything is uncomfortable. Feel like I’m on a proper countdown now.
I’m 28 weeks tomorrow and already feeling it. It’s DC4 and I’m a fair bit older than I was with the other three so it’s definitely taken it’s toll on my ageing body .
I’m starting with mild SPD myself. Definitely struggling to get comfortable on a night, peeing constantly, baby’s kicks have just got a lot stronger suddenly and can get uncomfortable at times. I feel like a whale... I have big babies and am measuring three weeks ahead with this one so looking like another huge baby.
Hyperemesis vanished a few weeks ago, but reflux has been horrific for about 8 weeks - sometimes to the point of vomiting. SPD is a nightmare and I can hardly walk, chuck in the back pain and sciatica right down my left leg with incontinence and an active almost three year old who is toilet training (we also only have one toilet which is upstairs) and I'm not exactly blooming.
The first time around wasn't exactly a barrel of laughs but looking back it was a breeze in comparison.
I still remember the awe and joy at holding my first though, and I know it will all be worth it.
gem that's great! Hope all went well and DC is safely here.
Siol Thankfully the weather is awful so I've got the excuse to stay home now and find indoorsy things to do. I imagine that's making you very cross. I'm sitting here a bit annoyed on your behalf!
OP It is, isn't it? I knew about my pregnancy from really early on and I feel like I've been pregnant forever.
My body clock has kicked in now and I'm waking at regular intervals through the night to feed the baby, which would be less annoying if there was actually a baby present to feed. My other one refuses to nap during the day as well which means that instead of being rested I constantly feel a level of sleep deprivation.
