I'm due on April 25th!

Time has been flying by so far. I've been lucky to avoid any complications so far, so I'm hoping the rest of it will go by pretty smoothly too!! I get SPD off and on, but thankfully it hasn't been too bad the last few months. Only if I really over do it on the walking, then I pay for it later!

I'm a full time graduate student, so I'm busy working away on school stuff while also working part-time. I have some exam deadlines at the start of April that I'm working away preparing for, but I'm starting to get to the phase where my energy increase is waning away again, and I find myself wishing I could take naps in the afternoon rather than having to work on papers or read another book.

I haven't started 'nesting' yet, but I'm not sure I really will. I am a bit antsy to get things organized and ready though! The nursery is mostly put together, but we have our baby shower on Feb 9th, and until then, we can't really buy anything else. I can't wait for it to be over so I can sort out what we need to get still and go out to get it!

I'd you are when are you planning on finishing? So many girls in my hospital work to 38 weeks! I just don't know how! Xx
If you are a failure I hate to think what I am... I stopped my cushy 7 hr a day desk job at 27 weeks.

You aren't any good to your baby if you over do it and end up injuring yourself, or going into early labour. Your body is telling you what is right for you. Some ladies can work up to their due dates without issue. Some can't. It isn't a contest.

Hi!

I'm due on the 22nd Feeling nervous! Definitely getting that nesting feeling - I really feel like I'm running out of time, but I'm not quite doing what I need to just yet!

Getting what I now think is SPD, although I only get it when I'm sat down for too long! (A lot of you seem to get it stood up too long?) Think I'd better start sleeping with a pillow in between my legs.

Hormones have definitely ramped up! Feeling more upset lately and I've been getting a little paranoid recently? Anyone else or is that just me?

Can I just say I love this thread, it's felt a little bit awkward fitting into this trimester board and this definitely makes me feel more at home!!

Sitting makes it worse for me, that's why I had to stop working.
I'm spending most of my time horizontal. Sitting, standing, walking... all of it puts pressure on your pelvis

Wow, nesting?! Certainly no nesting here. Quite the opposite! I come home from work and whale-around on the couch until it's time for bed. Definitely don't have the energy to clean. My first scan said my due date is April 14 but every scan and measurement since then has put bubs a week ahead.

Hi ladies....

Firstly i just wanna say all pregnancies are different never think ursrlf a failure for not ferling u can work till u drop.... Im a stay at home mum and i tell u im struggling with that most days esp when dd gets into her lil moods...
We all are doing the same thing we are growing a human inside of us some with more difficulties then others but we still doing the same...
My lil baby kept me up most of the nite laying on my bladder 10 times i needed the loo and i dreamt my waters had broke woke up in a panic feeling around the bed like a lunitic woke oh up lol....
I dont know if baby is engaged i am getting more pressure down there but guess ill find out next mon on the scan....
Now do any of u lay on ur right side ive avoided it cos ive read its dangeroud for baby but god i miss it lol

Rooster100 you are most definately not a failure, I may be being completly naive and a little bit stupid by aiming for 38 weeks, we all just need to listen to our bodys (and our bumps) as to how far we can go before we HAVE to stop, being on your feet all day is stressful. I work 10 hour shifts some days but I have to take 15 min breaks every couple of hours else I cant do anymore.
Maggie111 I completly agree this thread does make it easier to fit into 3rd Tri, its a bit scary reading all this stuff about labour especially when we have a couple of months before we have to start worrying about that sort of stuff!!!

Oh my gosh I totally would stop at 29 weeks if i could. I am a yummy mummy pretending to be a professional most of the time. I am thinking of quitting work anyway after baby is Born - I am only working to end for the money and to earn a full maternity package.
Whether we can afford to live on DH salary alone I don't know. It will be a squeeze.
Pregnancy is exhausting me - I resent early mornings, having to fight against DS to dress him then drop him and run to Train. Hate it hate it!
I also work in Nhs ...
