Seriously. I walk near things and they fall over, or jump off tables to get away from the giant belly.

29+5 and I am fed up of having this beach ball up my top.

Anyone else feeling massive?

There is a pic of me on my profile if you want to laugh at the beached whale that I am grin

Why does the floor have to be such a long way away. I'm only little. not even 5ft, but the floor is just too far to reach now.

ChocChaffinch Mon 14-Oct-13 20:34:51

like a thirsty giraffe grin
I'm 5'9'' and not into the heartburn zone yet. have gaviscon on my bedside table though, lovely stuff

Oh I love this thread! Am 38 weeks now and burst into tears yesterday as even trusty maternity jeans wouldn't fit. Now working my way through DP's wardrobe of t- shirts and jumpers, knowing how fed up and hormonal I am he doesn't dare complain!

And if one more person goes " you can't have long to go now" while staring at my stomach I will KILL them, am so huge have been hearing this for the past 8 weeks.

WhisperMen Tue 15-Oct-13 08:34:29

I have been stealing DP's jumpers too sleeptime I also have my dads duffel coat because my coat doesn't fit and hasn't done since about week 20. I'm too poor to get a new coat so I just look a bit like a homeless person if I go outside.

I get a lot of compliments about the fact I was back in size 8 skinny jeans, 4 weeks after having my DD - what those people forget is how I was in and out of hospital my entire pregnancy with heavy, unexplained bleeding. I had my little girl at 30 weeks by emerg c-sec. The stress of the possibility we'd lose her meant I barely ate. I feel thoroughly cheated out of my final 10 weeks of pregnancy and would've given anything to waddle sad sad (she was child 3 so, yes I DO know what the final weeks are like!!) x

I'm 21+6 with DC3 and I'm huge much bigger than previous pregnancies. People keep asking me if I'm absolutely sure I'm only 21wks and one of the ladies at work told a colleague who is 40wks that I'm bigger than she is! Cheek! Baby is actually measuring ever so slightly small on scans - was measuring 19wks at my 20wk scan, so not a massive baby (unlike DS, my first, who was 9lb 3oz at 40wks).

Agree about the floor. I dropped some papers at work the other day and they may as well have been in the moon for all the chance I had of picking them up.

This thread has made me laugh - Im 15 weeks and have a problem with my big fat arse getting stuck in chairs! The shame! my bump is starting to show now though so hopefully will stop looking like I ate all the pies... (note to self - avoid chairs with arms just in case grin )

WhisperMen Tue 15-Oct-13 12:19:09

I got stuck in the chair in the waiting room at the doctors this morning. It was pretty embarrassing. Why do they make such small chairs?!

Emilycee Tue 15-Oct-13 12:37:46

Omg Whisper me too! went for my flu jab in my tiny village where everyone knows everyone and it happened in a full waiting room! blush

LittlePeaPod Tue 15-Oct-13 13:35:11

Hi Op I am back for another moan.... What about the bleeding gums! I have had this since first trimester. I am sick of brushing my teeth and looking like Dracula whilst doing it... And today "I am mostly pissed off and fed up of feeling like I have an elephant sat on my chest".

Oh yea, and can someone please tell me when the "Glowing" stage of pregnancy starts? I am 29 weeks on Thursday and I still look like shit but now I also look like an ever expanding whale, to boot!

WhisperMen Tue 15-Oct-13 13:49:26

if I find my glow, I'll ask it where yours is too grin

LittlePeaPod Tue 15-Oct-13 13:53:37

LOL Whisper thank you. I would appreciate that and whilst you are at it can you ask Glowing to tell his friend the Elephant to get off my chest so I can breath freely? grin

WhisperMen Tue 15-Oct-13 15:07:33

I can ask elephant, but in my experience he is a bit of a dick and doesn't want to move. My elephant has invited his friend the hippo round for a chat recently and they won't bugger off.

Someone told me I was glowing yesterday. I threw my custard cream at them and then cried because it was my last one and I couldn't eat as it went in the fish pond. <sigh>

LittlePeaPod Tue 15-Oct-13 15:22:25

Oh no what a complete waste of a custard cream. I would send whoever it was a bill....

Hey at least I now seem to have developed superpowers. It's called "The Nose". I can now tell (by smell only) if someone has been drinking any alcohol in the past 86 hours because the person smells of a metallic odor to me. It's not a pleasant superpower but at least its a superpower. grin

WhisperMen Tue 15-Oct-13 15:33:55

How are you going to use your new found superpower to help the world? I wish I had a superpower. Unless being able to locate a toilet within 100 yards of me in any environment counts as one...

ChocChaffinch Wed 16-Oct-13 20:38:29

I have 'The Nose' too..it enables me to tell when next door are having a cup of tea. Very interesting.
