Of course Sea! these matters are personal as well as medical reasons...tell people to mind their own business!
I'm 41 in January and I tell you I am sooooooooooooo exhausted with this pregnancy little man is moving loads now but also keeping me awake at night I'm much bigger than I was with my last two pregnancies and really uncomfortable already!
Sea - Ignore peoples reactions - people have opinions on everything you do or they dont or know someone that did it differently -
Glowstar - bless you hun hope you get some sleep soon, i know how you feel i want a night of not getting up for a wee and being able to get up without feeling like a whale.
Im getting fed up with people saying how small my bump is, i have people say 'my friends due same time as you and shes much bigger..' it freaks me out that baby is too small or somethings not right its really starting to wind me up. This is my 22 week bump is it too small ?
I agree Lou, everyone will have their opinion! I think your bump looks great.
Sea, do you feel weird knowing the date so early? I'd love to be given a date that I'll give birth, would makes things easier to plan!
I'm also feeling a lot bigger and more tired this time round!
I know. It just gets difficult to ignore people when you're so full of hormones. I keep getting the impresion that I lot of these people think I have managed to 'wangle' getting a c-section. It doesn't help that it's been in the news a lot about the cost of c-sections on the NHS.
Glowstar - Sometimes madam keeps me up in the night. Epecially if I have had a busy day where I have been walking lots. I'm hoping it's not habit forming. And I have been so uncomfortable over these last few weeks.
Lou - So far I have had 50% tell me how small I am and 50% tell me ho massive I am. I feel that I am bigger then I was with my last pregnancy. I think your bump is perfect for 22 weeks
Cornish - I had to have my youngest by elective c-section after I went over due, but I have never known the date this early on. It feels a bit weird. DH even suggested we get her a birthday card to take to the hospital with us.
Loving the bump pics Sea and Lou I think your bumps are perfect. Im carrying so much lower than you guys. I think I may have a roomier pelvis or something lol.
My lil gal is keeping me awake loads. She seems to want to be awake and playing during the day, when i need to sleep, and sleeps during the night when im driving around working. I have also had to give up some of my work responsibilities. Had to give up some of the heavy lifting as my back was in bad shape. Didnt realize that having a big bump would zap my core strength so bad.
Girls have a wonderful week, and congrats to the ladies rolling up on the third trimester next week I only have until Dec 12 till my glucose screening and 4d ultrasound. Cant wait!!
Goodness, I have been so exhausted today. I've not long woken up from a 2 hour nap and I feel more tired then I did before I went to sleep.
Due to the schools being closed because of industrial action I decided to take my youngest to our local Children's Centre Stay and Play Session. Not one of my better ideas, it just ended up making me feel more drained. Plus I was cornered by the Centre's Health Visitor who was trying to get me to sign up for Antenatal Birthing Classes and Breast Feeding Support, despite me explaining I was having a c-section and bottle feeding.
Ugh, little madam has plenty of time to make me tired when she's born. I just want some energy back.
I thought i had better pop in and say hi, i havent been on here for a while.
glad to see your all well, and loving all the bump pics. Does any one else feel this is all going so fast? i only have 3 months today to go, so just in 3rd trimester!!! wooo hoooo!!!
i have just started 'lazy daisy' a antenatel yoga class, i would definitaly reccommend it if you have one in your area, it really relaxes you and makes you confident about the birth.
been busy painting the nursery and going carpet shopping at the weekend, so exciting getting things done! ill post some pics when its all done. oh and putting the christmas tree up, i wanted to last weekend but the oh said far too early!
Anyway, good catching up with you all. xxx
