I'm trying to gage if I'm just a bit of a wimp or if anyone else is feeling the same. I've had a stinking cold on top of being 31 weeks and I am struggling. My entire body hurts/uncomfortable, feel sicky, hot all the time and am not sleeping from acid reflux. I have 4 weeks left at work (an hour commute on a good day) and I'm starting to wonder how I will survive. Does anyone have any tips to feel a bit more human,?

No tips I'm afraid, just sympathy! I'm at about the same stage and am really struggling.

Can you work from home part of the time? I'm better if I don't have to get dressed/leave the house! (I can't to this all the tome but even a day a week is helping a bit!)

I have 6 weeks to go and have struggled for a while, so dw it isn’t just you!! I’m finding it helpful to just take it day at a time, and not doing too much in each day. Agree that maybe it is worth trying to work from home a bit, or could you get signed off sick for a week or 2? Give yourself a bit of time to relax and focus on you. I know this isn’t an option for everyone.
Good luck, and just think in roughly 9 weeks your baby will be here 😊

Thanks ladies its nice to hear its not just me, I was worried I was just being a wimp. I think trying to work from home a bit more is a good idea I will talk to my boss monday smile its crazy thinking that a tiny person is growing in us atm :D

You’re not a wimp at all. I’m feeling exactly the same. Ten weeks to go; constantly exhausted,constantly hungry, drive a lot for work and really struggling. 5 weeks of work to go for me and I’m counting down the days!! X

Im 31 weeks and struggling too. Not sleeping much which doesnt help the mood, the aches and pains or energy levels. Im not working so dont know how you are all doing it....

Okay I'm going to throw it out there sorry if its tmi but are any of you finding you needing to poop a heck of a lot more in the third trimester too? :D very inconvenient lol
