A great - and pretty sad - way to cheer yourself up a little at the end of pregnancy!

I have 6 weeks to go until C section date and i am totally fed up, feel fat and like i have been pregnant for 15yrs. Shops are full of lovely clothes, everyone i know is getting married/having birthday parties and i can't drink, i want to go out and dance, i can't sleep well, had tons of water infections, been in hospital twice now BUT, i came on here to moan and find other people feeling the same but have now found a GREAT way to make myself feel a little better!

I know it's really sad, but scroll down the list of topics on here and look at all the people who are 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 1st trimester, morning sicknessy, waiting for baby movements etc and you can't help but feel smug a little bit!!

We will NOT be pregnant over christmas and new year (yay) and we are nearly at the end!! as painful as it is, at least we can feel our babies trying to beat their way out of us all so we know they are ok and we have proper bumps (and heaving bosums) so we look pregnant and people aren't looking at us thinking "should i ask, or is she fat"

Good Luck to all of you who are at the beginning but i am going to spend a moment feeling smug that i am nearly at the end of a long stretch.......literally!!

YAY!!! grin

oh great i just looked at this because i think i might be pg - and you've reminded me of all the crap bits i have to look forward too!

ha ha!! sorry everyone!!! For those of you at the beginning, enjoy it! i feel a little sad that in a few weeks the bits only i can enjoy - the bonding with the baby, the moving etc - will be over so you early-on-ers can feel smug you have all that to come!!

Gem1981- it's going rubbishly! i have no idea when i will get some money although apparently it is being procesed so it may be 3 weeks!!! ARGH!!

i'm 34 weeks too and am positively hating it. this is my second and no one cares i'm pregnant, especially my toddler. i can't wait to not be pregnant. i too see all these lovely clothes in the shops as i strut by in my black stretchy tracksuit bottoms and top hmm.

Oh dear, I'm 25 weeks and wondering how much longer I can go on for! My body already feels like it is stretched to capacity and am not sure if my body can fit any more baby in. Oh and I'll probably be pregnant over Christmas. Don't mind me though, I'd probably feel smug if I were you. I suppose I can always buy clothes in the Jan sales.

I despised every minute of being in the first 16 weeks (this time around) - was hideously sick, looked podgy rather than preggers, constantly worried about everything and had to trek up and down and here and there with a toddler in tow. Argh!

Now I've got SPD and chronic back and neck ache, I'm not able to get comfy in bed and I'm receiving much less TLC/pampering this time around...but I am sooooo glad I am in the 3rd trimester now.
