I'm 18 weeks, I am constantly in pain, my back feels as though its going to snap, my ankles hurt, my boobs are sore to the point where I can't even wear a bra, my feet ache, I have severe headaches that lead to migraines and I'm 100% sure Im in the early stages of SPD! My last pregnancy I was in pain all the time but mainly with my back and pelvis (I had SPD), this time everything hurts I feel so heavy and disgusting I've legit had so many meltdowns this week, constantly crying.

Does anyone else feel like this? I'm not even half way yet and I'm already going through this much, this is my fourth pregnancy but third baby.

I could have wrote this!! I'm 19 weeks today and feel crap!! I don't think I've had one day since finding out in pregnant where I've felt ok! I'm so fed up , I'm literally wishing the weeks away instead of being excited! πŸ™„πŸ˜‚

I know how you're feeling. I'm 35 weeks so nearly there but I remember having a full blown break down nearly half way about how much time I had left to feel like shit!

There's not a lot we can do to feel better but I do send hugs your way 🌟

Oh @puta91 and @meh438 I feel exactly the same. 19 weeks today and I've had nothing but sickness and spd type pain, constant headaches and exhaustion. So much for glowing! I'm finding it really hard to muster up any excitement, just so fed up

With my second I was 21 weeks and broke down to my DH saying that I couldn't do it anymore. He helpfully said "well you can't really back out of it now".

It just felt endless, I was so grateful to be having a baby but I was so so so unwell I genuinely didn't see a way to get through the next 20 weeks.
However now it's like a distant memory.

Are you deficient in anything? Getting enough rest? Getting enough help with your current DCs?

There are simple stretches you can do if you look online to help the aches and pains. I'm sorry there's really not a solution. Just be kind to yourself.

I'm Struggling with looking after my 4yo at the moment , partner is working long days so it's just me and my boy at home in the day, I feel so bad for him I have no energy to get up and play with him , or if I do I have to keep running off to the toilet because I feel sick or I have to have a 5 min Lay down on the sofa. I'm feeling like a crappy mum at the moment ! The next 20 weeks can't go quick enough in my eyes!

I just want to feel normal again! πŸ˜‘

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels this bad, everyone else around me who's the same gestation is skipping about loving their pregnancy. I've bought a pregnancy belt so I'm hoping that will ease my back and the pressure, I feel so guilty for not enjoying my pregnancy, I absolutley can't wait to meet my baby but this pregnant life is not for me 😭😭😭, this is my third pregnancy, I've been told the more you have the harder it gets
