Loving this thread! I'm due April 23rd, and love nosing around third tri but don't really feel like I can relate to a lot of the posts yet because its mostly about whether labor is starting or not!
I feel lucky that i feel pretty good still, all though my pubic bone pain is getting worse lately because I've been enjoying getting outside and walking now the snow is gone. I just hope it is something that goes once baby is here!
Im due 22nd April and already suffering with SPD and bubs head has moved down and now a bit in my pelvis...all in all its a struggle to even get off the sofa i have asked for maternity leave to start at 38 weeks too but kind of regretting it now as im already struggling
I agree, we are all different and every pregnancy is different so we have to stop letting people pressure us in to feeling bad when really we should be listening to our bodies
I must admit im not so much nesting as lazying but after a full day at work i am not capable of much these days...apart from online shopping for more baby things that is
That said, i am loving feeling him move about more and he seems to be getting stronger by the week its so nice to see so many ladies due around the same time xxx
It really is quite nice to have a thread for end of april due dates, because I too feel like although I'm in the "third tri" now, most of the posts in this thread are women who are ready to burst and aren't sure if they're bursting yet! I'm sure that will eventually be us all of us too, but at the moment, I don't want to read about it. lol
I forget who asked about still being the eggplant: you get to be each food item for 4 weeks now. If you're at three weeks of it, you have one more than it will change to a squash at 30 I believe. I used to look forward to my new food each week... so it's a bit of a drag it doesn't change every time now!
I'm jealous of you ladies who get mat leave at all! I'm a full time PhD student and I'll be writing exams in early/mid april... hopefully before LO arrives!!! I might get to take a 4 months break after LO arrives over the summer though , which I'm *really* looking forward to!
Hi everyone, im due 30th of April, but will having a section, so will most likely be anywhere from 23rd, hopefully anyway, as I had pp at my last scan. I have another scan in 1 week, so hoping the placenta has moved up.
I wanted to like most of you to work as long as possible but you never know when you just can't anymore. I feel the worst when I just sit down still, I like walking around it makes me feel better but everytime I walk even a few steps I get out of breath so easily! And then I feel exhausted!! So we shall see how long I can work till.
Have been pretty uncomfortable lately and bubs is going crazy kicking, punching, flipping etc.
Well what a tiring day my dd been up since 6:25am and have been non stop ive also done more guttering of our flat and then went and saw my sil and her two boys where dd was constanly running around with them.... Baby Ayana has been bit quiet today had few kicls but its cos ive been on the go her fav place to hit/kick is my bladder today...
How are u all today another day nearly over
I can't complain at all. My kids are old enough to essentially take care of themselves and are very helpful around the house too. Dh is taking care of the grocery shopping and most of the meal prep as long as I have a plan for him.
My wonderful friend Marathongirl is on her way over for a visit right now. I'm going to have to share this thread with her. We met through this site and discovered we live in the same city and have a lot in common.
Midwife appt yesterday... baby is breech but nothing to worry about. Everything looks great.
Hi ladies, so I went to my gp and got signed off the rest of the week, I have a nasty UTI which may also be causing back pain. Going to take it week by week to see how work goes.
Today I went into town (Dublin) and bought a nice Clinique body lotion to cheer myself up! Bought some new maternity bras as I have grown again ! And a little blanket for lo! Xx
