    Aw I can imagine it must be hard work when you are tired. How old is your little one?

    Your wee boy sounds lovely. Im not pg now but I did find it hard. Good thing was though I didnt put on as much weight. You just need to nap when and if you can. Does your wee boy still take a nap?

    Yeah I try to put Noah down for a set nap time in the afternoon so Ican have a nap too.

    But the think Ifind hard now is carrying him upstairs to change him/ put him to bed etc, as he is very heavy and Iget so tired and out of breath carrying im upstairs. Icant wait for him to learn to walk so I dont have to carry him around everywhere!

    I have a three year old and it is sooooooo hard being pregnant and looking after her at the same time.
    She should have started school but we are still waiting for a place to come available.
    I am carrying a big baby and I am so tired all the time.
    I also feel that I am neglecting her needs because i'm not able to be super mum anymore and play all the time and take her on outings.
    I can't even ask my mum to watch her for a couple of hours as she has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and has had some major opperations so I am trying to support her as much as possible too.

    I feel like a real failure at the moment. : (

    It's good havin a big baby in some ways because they are easy to look after when they arrive. My girl was 9lb 1oz and this one is expected to be a lot bigger as it's a boy and i'm measuring large but it's such a strain when you have to run round with a little one.
    I hope your mum is ok and everything goes well.
    Good luck to you xx

    Yea i have a 2 and a half year old and am finding it hard work! I sailed through pregnancy with lottie and couldn't work out what was different- the toddler! Lottie is great but energetic and demanding and i am soo tired all the time! She has just started two sessions at pre school which is helping and i've gone back to work (after being a student!) just 2 shifts a week in a bar in the day so she goes to her grandparents and lets off some energy! I think if we have any more i will leave it a while! x

    Yeah im finding it difficult now im getting quite big. My little boy is 2 next month and hes a little monster. Hes into everything and so fast! He knows i cant run after him when hes done something wrong hehe Im on my own with him and im so tired all the time. Especially in the mornings, he comes and wakes me up between half 6 and 7 but sometimes we dont get up til maybe half 8, hes good though he just plays with his toys. But i feel so bad that i cant do the things with him i could before, alot of times over the last couple of weeks ive just been putting cartoons on for him so i can sit down and rest. I dont like to do that he needs playing with but its so hardwork!

    Be glad when baby is here and i have my body back! lol

    xx
