This thread is an opportunity for pregnant women to have a little moan if they are so inclined today. Whether or not you are pleased as punch, feel free to have a nice whinge about the itch, the stretch, the Pubis Symphsys Disorder or the hairy belly. Let loose.
THIS IS NOT A THREAD FOR OTHERS TO MOAN ABOUT PREGNANT WOMEN IN THEIR LIVES!
So I will start.
Today I am 12 weeks. Pleased as punch.
feel like headbutting every customer in the shop today.
Itchy as hell.
Still morning sick now with over 7 weeks.
Delighted to still be awake at the ungodly hour of 10.40pm. Usually I would have dozed off by 9pm.
There. I feel better already...... doze.
Could have done with moaning here, moaned in the pregnancy thread instead...to say that I feel bad is an understatement.
I just wanna moan about the fact I cannot have a beer over the festive period. Normally doesnt bother me not to drink but I think I'll have a problem with it come Xmas night!
But then again I too have been asleep before 9 since I found out I was expecting!
Don't know how I'm going to stay awake tonight to get everything ready for DS. Most nights I am asleep before him!!
Ooh a moan! Fabulous!
Ok I'm ready to pop! I'm disgusted that this little one hasn't come early! I don't know quite what I was expecting but I wanted to be able to enjoy my Christmas dinner without:
- Getting full very quickly
- Needing to pee every 45 seconds
- Worrying about having a glass of wine with my dinner
- Worrying about my waters breaking all over my mother-in-laws new floors
- Worrying about going into labour and having to spend christmas in pain and have the baby arrive christmas day and forever be known as 'Jesus'!
I can't sleep. I'm still awake at 4am every morning. Then I sleep for a couple of hours then have to get up and pee and I'm awake again.
Getting up is a problem too. My SPD is killing me. Turning over in bed takes about half an hour and many moans and groans.
My hands and feet are fat and puffy and my wrists are killing me.
Thank god it can only go on for a little while longer... I can't wait to meet the baby and know that its all been worth it
dont get me started!
I've spent most of christmas crying because I am so tired and have way too many hormones for my own good.
I'm annoyed that I am feeling so sick...I will not be partaking in christmas dinner. You suck kidneys....you SUCK.
Huge hugs...neither of us are having easy pregnancies but we have beautiful babies to look forward to. My little guy was kicking (is, he is back to it again) and I love that.
I can really identify with the hormones run amok, last time I only cried once over a donkey sanctuary advert on the telly (I went off to bed in hysterics!), but this time I seem to cry at the drop of a hat. Sad songs, happy songs, DD being lovely, DD being a toddler, hubby being great, hubby being a man. You name it. Its the loss of control over everything that gets me, I LOVE being in control especially of myself. I can feel "possessed" some days. Poor hubby is waiting for my head to start spinning and pea soup to spew from me!
And today the tiredness. But DD and hubby and I are all off to bed now for at least a one hour nap. We'll all be hopefully quite sane again by 3.30p.m. and I will feel more like cooking and less like throwing the turkey out the kitchen window.
On a positive note, Santa came and it was good. DD has spent the entire morning playing with her new cooker and pots and pans. Who knows, next year I may retire from the Christmas culinary fray altogether.
Wishing the very best of all good things to all the lovely boards members I have been privileged to meet in the last two years. Nollaig Shona Daoibh go leir.
So glad I'm not alone at being peeved not being able to drink Christmas day!
I wouldn't mind but generally I don't drink and I'm normally the designated driver at Christmas but would've loved a glass of west coast cooler today!
If that's the worst I have to worry about then I can't complain really
Baby is kicking the living daylights out of me all day though she'll only kick when hubbie puts his hand on my tummy, she won't perform for anyone else.
Think we have a daddys girl in the making
I have toddler twins. Until now, one or the other of them usually woke up at least once a night for a cup of water and a diaper change. Now they finally sleep through, but I can;t because I have to get up pee so often!!!!!
Had a miserable night last night. Didn't do a lot yesterday but when I went to bed I started getting fairly bad braxton hicks that were effectively pushing the little guys head lower and lower. So between them I'd have nearly nodded off only to wake up with that horrible sharp pain. It went on all night. I'm fecking destroyed now.
Not as bad as some of you! But Lord am I huge this time around!! I can't bend over to tie my shoes, I can't bend over the cot to put Addison to bed, I can hardly carry her around anymore!
I want a premature baby!! I'm awful mother I know. I'm an awful person. But I don't like my baby these days...really really. I don't think she likes me either. OK, I do like her, but I would just like her a lot more OUT of me. I just want the next 10 weeks ot be over, or else the little girl to decide whether she is going to be an early arrival.
Having really bad lower back pains etc. The mother is worried I am going into labour, but I will not beleive it till baby is half way out. It's going to take a lot to drag me back to the hospital!
I was out shopping with a friend in Dundrum the other week and had to have my friend tie my shoe laces in the middle of River Island. Very embarrassing!
I was over in Manchester at the weekend and didn't bring sensible shoes (silly me, snow was forecast!!), so we headed off to Matalan where I picked up a cheap pair of trainers. Wanted to change into them right away so went outside and re-laced them. Took my shoes off and put trainers on and then went to bend down and tie them... Wasn't happening!! My partners father asked me did I need a hand and rather than have him bend down and tie my shoes for me I went to find somewhere to sit down and do it!! Embarrassed or what!
