Not sure about movements Boris, def mention it to midwife though
AFM, 35 weeks today and I think I have been hit with SPD. I have the most excruciating pain at the front of my pubic bone. It's fine til I try and move. Was almost crying trying to turn over in bed last night. Really hoping this doesnt continue and I just overdid it yesterday at the zoo for J's birthday. Got some friends coming over today to see J but I think I'll have to let my H deal with everything
Hope everyone is well

Boris I would definitely mention it.
Ally I really hope it's not spd. I've had it since 14weeks and it's such a pain. Had it with D too but it went as soon as she was born thankfully.
Afm had a busy week. And it's a busy weekend. H has got really into his cycling so we're off to a bike show in our local town. Best remember my support belt. only 3weeks left at work. Can't wait x

Boris - Little Bob does similar, especially around 20-26 weeks. I think she just sleeps more when growing, and I definitely not my bump having a growth spurt at the end of TE quieter period. If you're worried mention it to your mw though.
Ally - hope J had a lovely birthday! Fingers crossed you're just aching from a busy day and it's not SPD
Daisy - at least the weather is looking good for the bike show.
AFM - A woke around 2am, he's been doing this for a few weeks now, I only have to go in and he lies straight back down and is happy to go back to sleep, but for the second night in a row me getting up to him has then meant a toilet trip followed by not being able to get back to sleep for an hour or so. I suffered with pregnancy insomnia last time, I hope that doesn't happen again, I'm already exhausted in the evenings!
Off swimming this morning, followed by a cheeky McDonalds trip, then H wants/needs to do some stuff in the garden. I need to tidy the house, there seems to be clutter creeping up everywhere I turn!

Quick hello from me, I don't post on these threads much as I can't keep up!
Boris - my bubba had a quiet day the other day, but I was really busy so probably didn't notice so much? Last night I got big movements, like tossing and turning. Most uncomfortable!
Today I had a good look at myself in the mirror, as opposed to a fleeting glance, and the sunlight hit all m stretch marks from last time, which when not pregnant don't show much. Proper white tiger stripes they are now. I'm hoping I don't get even more this time. Last time I went through whole pregnancy with none, and the they appeared a few days after baby was born. Bit gutted, although its not like I was wearing bikinis and crop tops before having kids anyway....

Have been googling SPD and all my symptoms match it :-( slightly concerned as to how I'll cope if the pain is this bad when my H is working cos I'll have a 4 and 2 year old to look after when I can barely move
15/06/2013 at 09:34
Boris- mention it to the midwife if your worried, but mine seems to have quiet and active days. As bg said I think its due to growth spurts, and depending on the position they are in they are running out of room.
Ally- hope it isn't spd and like you said you just over did it. Definitely let h take over today! Have fun with your visitors.
Daisy- enjoy the bike show. 3 weeks is not long Wohoo! I've got 5 left and am also counting down the days.
Bg- welcome to 3rd tri. Enjoy maccy ds! Hope your tidying doesn't take long.
Idc- there's nothing wrong with stretch marks, I should think every woman has them somewhere! Babies really test our bodies!
Busy weekend ahead. Got to go+get the dads fathers day pressies today+my dad a birthday pressie as its the weekend after and a couple of bits in town, then need to get on with report writing. Must try and do at least 5 today. Then got a BBQ at my granddads tomorrow for fathers day, dads birthday and my granddads. He will be 95 in almost 2 weeks!
We also wrote down our short lists of girl and boy names yesterday. Think we are going to leave it at those until baby arrives but there are definite favourites on both lists!
15/06/2013 at 09:36
Ally will the doctor be able to refer you to psyhio to help? Not sure if that's what's done for spd
15/06/2013 at 09:37
Boris, I sometimes find there are quieter days although I think it's more down to me being tired and busy and not noticing. Definitely mention it to the MW though for some reassurance.
Ally, hope it's not SPD and you just overdid it. Hope your H can take the pressure off today.
Daisy, enjoy the bike show and yay for only 3 more weeks!
BG, enjoy the swimming and hope A's sleep settles soon.
IDC, I'm sure the stretch marks will fade again.
AFM, busy day today, Joshua has a party this afternoon then we're off to the theatre. This morning I need to do some housework and start on my hospital bag as I have bought some stuff and need somewhere to put it! H will be out in the garden again painting the fence so I will be able to get on in peace. Think it must be tiredness but I'm feeling quite emotional at the moment and needy, hope it shifts soon as it's not like me and I really don't like it.
15/06/2013 at 09:47
Margot- have fun at the theatre! Hope the emotions pass. Exciting packing your hospital bag! I need to get the bag out of the loft so I can bung the bits in I've got so far.
15/06/2013 at 11:25
Boris I think thats pretty normal but worth mentioning to mw anyways
Ally hope it isnt spd and that you just worked yourself a bit too hard. Big hugs
Daisy enjoy the bike show I miss cycling :(
BG have a lovely day today, enjoy your mcdonalds
IDC boo to tiger stripes :( but be proud of them! Hopefully they will die down again once the baby is out
Bunny Yey for picking names :D and how fab your grandad has reached such a milestone as 95! Many birthday congrats to him!
Margot have a wonderful time at the theatre what are you going to see?
AFM Hubby is currently wandering around the house looking for his uniform for work later, hes muttering something or other but I didnt catch it lol. Baby is very very active! Cant believe how much of a fidget she is, I can see this getting very uncomfortable soon :( I had my 28 week appt early yesterday, had my bloods taken and was given a dvd on breastfeeding which was very interesting. Going to make my dad a cake for fathers day and carry on knitting, got some new patterns off ebay yesterday so looking forward to getting them started! Had very strange dreams last night, dreamt two bees stung me. Hi to all who follow.
15/06/2013 at 13:24

Monday and Tuesday at work then that's it, mat leave until September next year, hurrah! Ooh and hypnobirthing session on Friday. Still want to sort a bouncy chair, need to dig out close carrier and car seat from loft and wash blankets, build cot etc, but getting there slowly!
16/06/2013 at 08:03

16/06/2013 at 08:16
That's the first time I've been called organised bunny!! ;) It's taken me 34 weeks to pull my head out of the sand and accept that we do actually need to get ready for this baby. With George I'd bought our pram even before the 20 week scan!
Hope you have decent weather for your BBQ today.
Not sure what we're up to today. Weather is rubbish but will have a little drive and get some lunch or something.
16/06/2013 at 08:41

16/06/2013 at 09:10
Morning all, lovely to see you back Dinx - not long till ML now!
Had a very grumpy evening yesterday, think my tired and emotional state got the better of me but I feel better for getting it all out. Not sure what our plans are for today, trying to talk to H but he has his head in a book. Need to plan my lesson for tomorrow morning and sort the usual lunches and bags, and I will be popping to my parents at some point too.
31 weeks today which means that in 9 weeks I will have another baby - eek!
16/06/2013 at 10:49
I feel like I've had an easyish pregnancy so far and its gone really quickly and now I've hit 35 weeks I feel awful. I'm still in bed, have a pounding headache, I've been getting really bad cramp in my legs at night so now I can barely walk cos it feels like I've pulled the muscles in my calves, I still have the pain in my pubic bone and I got heartburn for the first time last night. I just want to cry :-(
Oh and I read that Kim Kardashian has apparently had her baby, she was due about same time as me so has scared me a bit into really needing to start packing my bags!
Sorry for the moany post :-(
