Hiya I'm new here so I hope I am doing this right :/ and was just wondering if there was anyone who has been in a similar situation or anyone who can shed some light on my situation. I am 35 weeks pregnant by midwife dates (37 by mine) and for the last few days I have been feeling very off ish, just so so rough and emotional. I have been really lethargic and have aches and pains every where which I'm fully aware this is
completely normal at this stage in pregnancy but have also been feeling really nauseous again and been going to the toilet to clear out (sorry tmi!) at least 4/5 times a day the last week. I was induced with my first son as my waters were leaking so i never actully got to experience the beginning of labour or what happens in the days or weeks in the running and he definitely wasn't ready to come out which is why I am paranoid about going into labour with my little one now! I am measuring up perfectly even though I feel that I can not physically take any more as I am quite petite and am really really struggling to get around or sleep and I honestly can't see me reaching 40 weeks. My midwife says baby is back to back explaining the back pain and he was already 3/5th engaged when I saw her last week but it is very obvious that he has moved further down due to the appearance of my bump and the intense pressure down below :( has anybody had anything similar to indicate possible slow labour or am I just being a bit dramatic lol hope you can help!

Hello sezcaz. Sorry to hear you're feeling fed up and so full of aches. I do remember that feeling and I know it's NO fun.
How are you feeling now? Has the emotional/lethargic feeling worn off a bit or is it still the same?
