Insist DH/DP feeds you grapes/chocolate and carries you everywhere on a silk pillow

Make sure you're keeping your feet up as much as possible to ease any swelling. Assuming you have no history of arthritis, the creaking is probably due to the extra baby weight you're carrying. If you're anything like me Gem by the end of the pg you're going to need a stannah stair lift and a zimmer frame

Think i'm gonna need it!!!!!

Can't keep my feet up all day coz it would drive me nuts. besides i'm off this week with back strain and it was good timing considering i was in hospital at the weekend!

I'd love to have a bath but have trouble getting out!
