Yep, I've hated being pregnant!!!
Started being sick at 4.5 weeks, spent many weeks in hospital and lost three and a half stone - now 36.5 weeks and still being sick!!!
I also hate the way my body looks and can't wait to get it back (at least something close to how it was before!) and can't wait to have the pressure off my ribs where madam is currently sticking her legs!!
I also have mild SPD, carpal tunnel syndrome, I'm anaemic and have had awful heartburn!!!!!
However, I am really looking forward to her getting here - just wish she'd hurry!!

I'm hoping this is the end of the sickness now. I have gone from a size12 down to a size8 since being pregnant from not even being able to keep down a few sips of water, but baby is fine and kicking away now, heartbeat is strong, and I find out what it is a week tomorrow. fingers crossed its a girl. Alot of people have told me they had really bad sickness when carrying girls, so hopefully!!

Hi mrs blue. I so know how you feel. I've been ill from day one. I'm still sick everyday and so p-off with it now. My hips hurt so much. My boobs weigh at least a ton each and i'm already feeling so uncomfortable. So god knows what ill be like in another few months. I'm just hanging onto the fact i cant wait 2meet my baby and be a parent! Hope u feel better soon chick. Lisa 15+2 x

I've been ok up until the last two weeks as one of my girls is squashing my ribs and causing me pain. Hoping it will subside soon though! xx

imagine if men went through this!
Mar 2, 2009 5:57AM
me too mrsblue and thank you for posting this!
We have to think it'll all be sooo worth it in the end!! I've had quite a few issues, some minor, some major-ish and still got 3 months to go...but Spring is on the way which'll make us all feel better!! and we won't be preggers for ever.....

Oh hell no i've hated every minute of this PG tbh! i've felt nothing but sick, tired, also i started showing really early i seem to put on about 3stone in one go too! plus this bloody god damned SPD is killing me too, virtually almost bed-ridden now!!!! my kingdom for this to be over!

I HATE IT!! Love feeling my baby move but apart from that its dreadful. Was in hospital twice with hyperemesis. Still throwing up and have been told prob will till baby is born. So sore and uncomfortable. I loved being pregnant last time but i was very young then so maybe my body coped better. I actually used to want to be a surrogate
Not a chance! Cant wait to hold my little girl though.

I think I might print off this thread to remind myself I'm not the only one!!! x

I haven't enjoyed it so far- but when I start feeling the baby move (fingers crossed any day now!) it will all be worth it!
I had been exhausted from day 1 and still am, and sick from about 6 weeks. I had one period of a few days of really bad sickness that I managed to pull myself out of in time for Christmas (was stuck in bed and throwing up blood) then it happened again in the new year and I ended up in hospital
Since they rehydrated me I'm much better, but I still have nausea, just nowhere near as bad!

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
