and I have had enough.I'm 36+4 and am ready for this pregnancy to be over. I have been in a foul mood for the last 2 days, alternating between being a stroppy cow (poor H) and crying. I am fed up of not being able to do anything - last night I empty the washing machine and put the contents in to the tumble dryer. Not too energetic you'd think, but it led to having to lay on the sofa for 20 mins to get my breathing back and stop my head spinning. The house is a tip but, as per above, I can hardly do anything to get it sorted. I wanted to be able to enjoy my last pregnancy but all I do is lay in bed most of the time, and get sarcastic comments from H about how much he does around the house. He has announced that today he is jet washing the patio ... well that is fantastic but could you maybe carry the pram down from Noodles bedroom and put it in the garage because, well, that is just a damn site more helpful as otherwise I can see me doing it 1 week post section when you have buggered off back to London.I have a huge pile of washing in the corner of my bedroom. It is all my clean clothes which need to be put in the wardrobe but I can't do it. It makes me dizzy just bending down to pick it up. H just keeps saying "let's pay the cleaner to do all the washing, ironing, tidying that will help you" without realised that I don't WANT to pay someone else to do it, I want to be able to look after my family myself. And actually it would cause me more stress - what am I meant to do, sit there and tell her what to do. She doesn't know what needs to go where, if I need to get washing sorted for her to do then I need to do it in advance of when we need the clothes rather than the night before panic we normally have and the chances of me managing that are pretty non-existant.Oh, and now I have to have my iron tablets increased and given that the 3 a day I am on now have caused *** painful piles that I had thought I was going to avoid this time (haemarroidectomy at 16 weeks pregnant last time, the most painful thing ever) so god knows what is going to happen when I have to go to the higher dosage. And really I've been taken them for 3 months and my iron levels have improved by .2 - I don't think they are doing much.Rant over.

So sorry you feel like this. Fingers crossed you don't have long to go xx

Sorry your feeling rubbish. Really hope you don't go to term so you can feel better soon x

Awww hun sorry you feel so rubbish. I dont feel quite so bad but can sympathise on a lot of it. I walked 10 mins to a bar from work for lunch yesterday, by the time I got there my back was killing and my ankles were huge, then I had to walk back! I cant turn over in bed without it really hurting, I cant lie in as my legs are achy and crampy by the time I wake up. My H is doing everything so I cant complain there but I just feel useless all the time. How people do this already with one child I really dont know!! Big hugs xx

Oh JB I feel your pain about every word!!!! I'm now a week overdue and ready to murder the next person (probably my little bro - who is 34!) who texts me with a comment like 'you r dragging this out a bit now!'
29/06/2013 at 10:44
MrsH, what is weird is that with Zoe I really enjoyed my overdue time - I was 11 days over - and had a fab time. I haven't even got to my due date this time and I'm already wishing it to be over. Although I have a feeling that what is on the other side of the birth may be even worse.

My h is that kind if guy too JB, the house could be upside down with me tearing my hair out...he would go and wash the car or start the garden? I've had both my boys by sections in the end, if its any re assurance my sons school is a mile away at the bottom of the large hill we live on. By the time S was a week or so old I was doing the walk back and forth. My advice would be rest rest rest those first three or four days after the section and try to heal as much as possible and fingers crossed by a week on you could be feeling really good. I've got my fingers crossed for a speedy recovery for you if it's deffinatly a section your going for x

I went a week over with M and it didn't bother me, I guess this time round it's harder with having a toddler to look after as well. With the amount of sleep I'm getting at the mo I reckon I will get more sleep when baby is here!!!

Sorry you're feeling do rubbish. That was how I felt. I wanted to enjoy my last pregnancy but instead I had my head down the toilet for 5 months of it. I couldn't do anything with S which made me feel awful.
You're on the homeward straight now. Hope it goes quickly for you

Late pregnancy sucks. Give me newborn knackered ness over pregnancy tiredness any day. I was the same and spent most of my pregnancy in my bed. I was sick if the sight of it. I bored myself with my moaning but I was so miserable.
Not long to go now x what's the latest on the vbac v CS?
29/06/2013 at 13:24
C-Section is going ahead, I can't wait any longer.
29/06/2013 at 13:27
I am feeling like this today too and I am only 22 weeks so god knows how you are feeling. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I could have written all the bits you said about being fed up and wanting to just do things like normal. I was fine with my first, didnt understand why so many pregnant women moaned at the last stage - oh boy did I eat my words in my second pregnancy! Everything was hard work and made my back ache like hell and exhausted me. I had to save all my energy for the school run and that was all I could manage in the last month or two. I was a grumpy cow as well and just wanted to feel normal again. Don't worry just a few weeks (including post section) and you will be back on your feet and will really appreciate being fit again!

Another one on the 'over it' bench. 36+2 and fed up with feeling like I'm carrying twice my original bodyweight, SPD, can't sleep, weeing every two minutes and struggling to keep up with housework and a hectic 3.5yr old boy. Can't wait to have my baby in my arms and my body back to myself!
29/06/2013 at 20:57
Only just starting to appreciate how rubbish the last few weeks are. Completely knackered tonight and I've barely done anything. I sit here looking around thinking about all the jobs that need doing, but barely having the energy to even finish this post! I'm also wondering what post-birth will be like. Guessing some things will improve, but you're still physically recovering from birth PLUS have a baby to look after. I can't even imagine doing it with a toddler too x

I feel your pain I really do :(
I am 35 weeks and have absolutely had enough now and cannot wait for this baby to arrive. Suffering with SPD and have been on light duties since really early on and everything is just getting on top of me now, to the point where I'm either really grumpy and horrible or crying (really feel for poor DH who can't do right for doing wrong atm!)
Hope you are feeling a little better today x
