I'm feeling huge today and really uncomfy, dont you just love the last trimester for heartburn, backache and sleepless nights.
Anyone else the size of a house? or is it just me and my huge preggie bellys, I'm sure I get bigger everytime and I was asked if my first was twins at 6 months lol

I was huge with my third (now 4 weeks old) I measured way above what I should have done and was so uncomfy but I do slightly miss my bump. (It was better than the wrinkly saggy tummy I am left with) XX

Aw Caroline my heart goes out to you-I HATED BEING PREGNANT! I know that's an awful thing to say but I was huge on both of mine-was told with first he'd be 15lb-actually less than 7lb-idiots!
Coulndn't sleep from 6mth,hardly walked cos of spd,and had the worst heartburn ever. I soooo sympathise. Best bet mate is moan on here-let it out and keep telling yourself not long to go x x
Bless you hun,keep cat napping on a night and at least leave your feet up!!! xx

aw rach glad its not just me, the spd is a killer, doctors given me painkillers so i can get an hours kip at a time otherwise i just can't sleep. moss was 9 lbs 7.5oz and i'm expecting baby boy to match him in size at least, skye was smaller thank god but i was still the size of a house with her.
there are good bits, i like feeling him wriggle when he's not jumping on my bladder but i'll be so glad when he's here and i can cuddle him rather than having to carry him. i just keep having to think how lucky i am to be able to have the kids i always wanted

i feel for you caroline, i was 6-7mnths pregnant this time last year, spd the worst heartburn ive ever imagined, up to pee every half an hour, and lugging my lardy bum jack around in an infant carrier as he was too small for the group 1 carseat!!!
Midwifes told us jj was gonna be 10lb+ he was 6lb lola was 'normal' all the way along 7lb 6oz born but i falt HUGE and slept everytime jack did to survive, thank god he was such a poppet! Not long now, cant wait to see pics of the little fella xxxx

The last bit is uncomfortable,I feel for you Caroline.That was me just a few months ago,too soon forgotten.All you can do is rest as much as you can and enjoy the relative peace while you can.You can't stockpile sleep,be great if you could,but the more rest you can get now the better.Soon be nightfeeds again,this time with two toddlers to add to the picture.
When I was at my hugest,I got most of what I had to do done as early as possible,spending most of the afternoon on the sofa while the kids played.
Won't be long now,baby will be here soon enough.

At east you can see the light at end of tunnel hun,I had a hard job doing that!!!! Wouldn't it be brilliant if you could stock pile sleep??? That would be so handy!
Thankfully it'll be more than worth it in the end x x x You picked names yet hun? Or are you keeping them secret til we get to see photos?? x

yeah stock piling sleep would be handy lol nightfeeds i 'm not looking forward too, lovely bonding time but i do like my sleep. thank goodness it doesn't last forever eh, i think we'll be doing as little as possible over the next 6 months or so till we get into a routine and its safe for me to drive again
rach we have picked a name, he's going to be called Zack

Oh lovely that Caroline,I do like that. Obviously being the welsh freak that I am I'd spell it zac!!!!
I did have that on a shortlist too Lau,but as his surname begins with C I thought it was a bit of a mouthfull ! That goes nice with Moss and Skye oh how exciting!!!!!!! Any middle names? I'm just a nosey bitch!

Ha-you've got to be so careful with surnames haven't you. Was secretly wishing they would have had my surname-but Tom jones was just cruel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Funny but cruel.
We were liking a lot of celtic names as Ian is half scottish half Irish,and the only welsh in the village!!! But then thought if we gave them welsh christian names,they've got an Irish surname so we'll just have to let them wear rangers shirts!!!!!!
I found it difficult picking names,I wanted real welsh ones,but out-laws wouldn't have been able to say half of them,and didnt want them taking the piss. Ah well maybe If I'm ever blessed with another That one can have a real unusual name!

Our middle one is Zak . I've also got a thing for short names Laura - we've also got a Fin and a Noah.
Although Zak (2) started calling Fin Finbone for some reason which has stuck. He called Noah baby nona when he was in my tummy so that has also stuck and everyone calls him zakarooney .
Love the spellings of your boys names mummabear.

Hi BEB how's you? Cheers twolittleboys-they're just welsh,nowt else-but I read somewhere I shouldn't have done it as they'll spend however long of their life spelling their names!!!!
Ah well,it's the surname people have more trouble with!!!!!
Lau,I love beanie,it's so cute,keep it x x I used to have a puppy called beanie(not trying to put you off!!!) She was THE cutest,softest most gorgeous friendly dog ever!!!! Called her beanie baby!!!!!!

Beanie's cute.Harry was called that from when he was the size of a kidney bean when I was a few weeks pregnant.Bean,Beanie or Little Bean.When he was about three he really thought that was his name,but nursery loomed and we had to go with something more normal.Enjoy it as long as possible.
I did read a story about Little Bean,very cute but I can't remember who wrote it
