    So trying everything in my power to keep this bubs sticky. Does anyone else treat their belly like fine china?? I notice that if i bend over or do too much I get faint cramps. Even got oh doing the bathroom and the hoovering cos that's 'too dangerous!' I know myself this is sheer craziness and I'm sure I won't 'squash' bubs. Please say others are the same?!

    TBH yes, you are being slightly over the top. At this stage of your pregnancy the baby is so low down in your pelvis that very little (with the exception of an explosion!) is going to dislodge it. However - make the most of it lol!!!!

    I do a lot if Guide camps and school Duke of Edingburgh expeditions, the kids, since finding out I am pregnant, have been so well behaved and easy to manage as they don;t want me to be stressed - I am sure they will go back to their usual mixed bag after the baby arrives.

    At first yes, but i'm reassured now that this baby is sticky, but I couldn't change a thing anyway even if it weren't. There is just nothing you can do hun. Try and relax.

    Tbh with my first pregnancy I was exactly like this and I was so anal about exactly how much tea I could drink etc etc and I still miscarried - just wasn't meant to be.

    This time round I have had the what will be will be attitude and am so chilled out and I will be hitting tri 3 soon.

    Just act normal and don't over do it, you will be fine x

    Yep, there is so little you can really do, its pointless driving yourself mad. I've tried to be good, but I've pretty much carried on as normal, seeing my horses, working (on my feet and lifting/carrying).

    I was the same with my 1st pregnancy but this time round there's no chance. My toddler climbs on my constantly and pokes at my belly button when we say there's a baby in there lol! I think they're pretty protected but I still worry!
