Oh I hope all is ok Xpecta and that baby keeps cooking for a while longer.

Third trimester insomnia is a ball ache. I feel like I'm permanently knackered! I can't get comfy at night at all and can't mind if it was the same with my son. The cramping is doing my nut in.

My bump is quite sore today but tbh I think I've over done it with walking and lifting Ollie. Will keep an eye though.

I'm up and down! I'm trying to enjoy the pregnancy as it'll be my last and it's been problem free compared to when I was pregnant with my daughter! However I didn't have a toddler that pregnancy and I'm finding it really difficult. I'm still working which is hard anyway whilst pregnant as I'm on my feet most of the day but throw a toddler in to that mix too and I'm just exhausted!!! I'm constantly tired and no energy, some days I don't have the energy to play with her or I can't get down on the floor as it hurts and it's difficult for a 3 year old to understand. Then mum guilt sets in! I'm only 31 weeks and not entirely sure how I'm going to cope, I'm ready for baby to be here but also I'm not as we've still got lots to do & it's too early for him to arrive!
I just feel off too, sick, nauseous and tired. I'm so uncomfortable but luckily I'm not getting up in the night to pee!

Also feeling exhausted despite sleeping about 10 hours last night!
I have been having lower back cramps since yesterday and strong BH but I know its just my body preparing.
Finished work last Thursday so its starting to feel real now that a baby could come anytime from 10 days from now!

I know, the exhaustion is REAL! I never thought I could be so tired but I could sleep all day and all night right now and still feel tired.

I'm having a lot of BH as well, last night was not so good, went to my dads for Easter dinner and wore some leggings that were too tight on my bump which seemed to aggravate it. Then I woke up this morning with terrible gas cramps that had me almost crying in pain. Haven't had that since early second tri so not sure what that's about. I've taken some gas meds and it has passed now so feeling better.

I hear you all with the lower back pain and BH I have this "period is coming" type of feeling today and I'm only going to be 30 weeks tomorrow, I don't remember feeling that way with my other two this early it's making me a bit nervous xx

I am sick of not sleeping. I wake up religiously at 2am and cannot fall back asleep until gone 5 most mornings.

This morning I went to the toilet at 6ish and my bump was solid and extremely painful, still only BH but definitely more noticeable than they've been before. I've had crampy lower back pains ever since.

Well I'm all settled in a foreign city all by myself. It's not the best situation, but I can't really complain. As for right now I'm trying to not worry about the BH I'm having. I don't think they hurt, but they kind of do? I also have cramps, a lot of lower pressure and sharp shooting pains in my vaginal area.

Hey ladies! Jumping in here.
Sounds like you are all having as much fun as i am! 😂
I have wicked heartburn 24/7. I manage to rid myself of it for a few hours a day but am terrified to eat anything and terrified to NOT eat lol. Either way i end up with heartburn. Sometimes it wakes me up at night and sometimes not.
I had my insomnia through the 2nd tri and its just now starting to f off.
I can sleep all night as long as i manage my heartburn correctly before bed.
My posterior pelvic issues suck but i got DH to watch a you tube video on pregnancy massage and he will rub my back every now and again which helps tremendously.
I go for my 1hr glucose test tomorrow (booo!) And then i have to start getting things ready lol. I havent done anything at all 😂.
I am also just getting over a 24hr stomach flu which put me out of commission.😣. Been a rough few weeks so i too want to be done being preggers lol

Sounds like everyone is having a time of it in here! I've had a bit of soreness and BH here and there, but I'm still mostly functional so far. I actually slept last night besides getting up to pee four times, very exciting! That probably explains my good mood

Wow, reading what you ladies are going through it seems I am getting off lightly! I'm 37 weeks and am big and uncomfy but still sleeping well, constipation has gone and no sign of heart burn so guess I can't complain too much!

What I am a bit gutted about is that I was diagnosed with polyhydramnios (too much amniotic fluid) 3 weeks ago. Passed my GTT so not caused by that. It's only mild but enough to put an end to my plans of a natural homebirth Apparently there is a risk if I go naturally that there would be such a gush of waters that the cord would prolapse. So I am being induced at 39 weeks so they can do a controlled break. More worrying is that there is a small chance that the cause of this could be that my little mans throat hasn't formed correctly - so he will need a tube put down his throat after delivery to check. So much for skin to skin and first feed

Still, as long as he gets here safe and well I guess that's all that matters. Hope my bump doesn't grow much more in the mean time! My stretch marks are awful and I can literally feel my skin tear with each one. Moisturising a million times a day! Just 12 days to go...
