I don't remember being this uncomfortable


Feeling so defeated. I was hoping to get through to mid Jan before I took my Maternity but I'm so sore and exhausted I'm planning on finishing up end of the year. So, given the discomfort I'm in at the moment, the heaviness in my pelvis and me having GD, what are the chances that my midwife will take this into consideration and try and induce labour with a sweep at 37 weeks? I normally don't want to know when labour will start (a sweep I know doesn't mean I will) as I like the day to be a surprise but I can't imagine going much further past that and feeling more and more exhausted and then having to labour and give birth at the same time.

If you're not working you might find your energy levels are a bit better and you can cope with going past 37wks. I'd also recommend some exercise (yoga or swimming) - I honestly feel so much better after doing something.

I love working so giving up end of the year is really bumming me out. I work in a bar so I was wanting to get through the New Year so the kitchen wasn't in absolute chaos but I don't think that will be happening.

I've heard swimming can be really good. I think I might have to go shopping just after Christmas and head down to the pool. We only have an indoor heated pool and my understanding is because of possible bacteria in heated pools, I should stay out of it??

I've had gd in both of my pregnancies and wasn't/ not allowed this time to go past my due date. Is it the same for you? I was induced at 39+5 with my daughter but had a sweep at 39 weeks at the midwives suggestion but it didn't work. Might be worth asking your midwive or doctor about. Finishing up work should help with getting more rest particularly working in a kitchen, I've been there not pregnant and it's tiring lol. Hope things get a little easier for you!

Only 12 hours a week but I love the people I work with.

Midwife will talk to me about induction if I go past 40 weeks but in all 3 pregnancies, the longest I ever went was bang on 40 weeks. My last 2 were born at 38+1 without induction so she's not worried at all. What I don't get is that this little one is bang on at around 2lb where with my last 3, they were a good couple of weeks ahead. If he keeps growing on par with what's average, I shouldn't deliver a baby any bigger than 7lb 10oz so I don't understand why with my smallest, I'm at my most exhausted.

Yup looking after more kids = more exhausted!! How are your iron levels?

I know here my mw won't do a sweep before 38 weeks but she did one at 37+6 for me and I had my LO less than 12 hrs after that!

You're fine to swim in a heated pool . It'll still be chlorinated. Our pool does warm swimming sessions and they're lovely !!

I've been suffering with my hips (SPD) and i gave up work at 32 weeks, luckily i had some annual leave to take. My job is being on my feet all the time and i started to really suffer. If you are suffering then you need to do what is best for you x
