    Feel like such a whinging moo but I swear my pregnancy has just been one ache or pain after another and I'm a bit fed up now. Don't get me wrong, there have been fantastic parts of being pg too, but as for the stuff that comes with it.....aaaaaahhhh!! :hissy:

    Counting up so far i've had:
    -Sciatica - bloody agonising, but mercifully only lasted a couple of days
    - Heartburn - evil! evil! evil!
    - Egglet's kicks - evidently my LO is trying to find a different way out cos i swear it feels like he's got a jackhammer in there!
    - Braxton Hicks - i really could do without the practice ones, i've got a good idea of what the real ones are gonna feel like and i'm pooing myself as it is
    - Backache - would it be wrong to invest in a rather pricey memory foam mattress at this stage or should i just suck it up?!
    - Achey bump - bending over sometimes makes me feel like i've gone ten rounds as an amateur matador with a particularly feisty bull....and lost in spectacular fashion!

    I'm moaning today cos although i'm not in any pain I horribly uncomfortable and achey, so feeling sorry for myself.
    Anyone else feel like they've really " been in the wars" (as my nan used to say :mrgreen:)?

    Haha! ah hun not long to go now! At one of our antenatal sessions the mw made us do the a-z of pregnancy complaints and ailments and explained why we get them all to oh's just to prove we're not making it up! It made my Dh realise that I'm not just a winger! :)
