    Hi Janie

    What a nightmare. Sorry you're feeling so crap. I think that sort of situation would get anyone down, but I also think hormones may be making you react to this situation differently to how you might if you weren't pregnant - they certainly can make you feel paranoid.

    I think you need to discuss how you're feeling with your midwife, so that he/she is aware..

    Don't know what to suggest regarding your neighbours other than stay well away - they sound like horrible people with huge problems, and you don't need the stress now or when your baby arrives. I think it may help if you're not alone in the house all day as well (that in itself would make me feel down) - are you able to spend time with your parents / future in-laws before baby arrives?

    Good luck and let us know how you're doing.

    Thanks for your reply, yes i need to go out more, they are nasty you would think that they would know better, they are older than my parents!!!!! They are like it with everyone in the street and im the victim now cos i got fed up of it and called the police!!! Just wanna get o end of my pregnancy and have a healthy baby, then i think i will be too occupied to even hear what they are saying, they are on about moving tho so fingers crossed this time next yr they may be a distant memory!!!!! xxx But think im feelin more vunerable and emotional right now cos of hormones!! xx

    Hi

    I'm in Leeds too and am 36 weeks so the same as you (except don't have the horrible neighbours) - where abouts in Leeds are you? Those neighbours sound horrible.

    I agree with the other people who've replied, just ignore those people and try to enjoy yourself. They sound very sad if all they can do is get drunk and comment on other people around them. You're better than them and you've got what should be the most exciting time of your life coming up so keep smiling and just email if you're down in the dumps. I think feeling sad and depressed is perfectly normal (our hormones are doing cartwheels) so don't fee bad because you're like this) - I'm sure we've all had bad days (I know I've had lots).

    Take Care xxx

    its probably just ur mummy instinct getting the better of you... u need to protect baby and make ur nest safe... i have horrid neighbours too but not as bad as urs but i find my self watching their every move... think im just looking out for danger.

    any chance you cud move house? i cant as i own my house.. but we will move after i finish uni.. just hoping they will move soon as its only a 2 bed house and about 7 people living there :shock:
