    Anybody else? I feel fat, bloated, short of breath and just plain awful! I'm 23+2 and have another 16/17 weeks to go! I'm not over eating even though I'm always hungry but I find eating big meals makes it worse. I remember feeling like this but a lot later in first pregnancy. I just feel horrible. Anybody else? Is it because baby is high? When can I expect her to drop? X

    Me! I feel terrible majority of the time, bloated, back pain, leg pain, tired, can barely walk up stairs without nearly passing out! I just put it down to not being able to rest as much with having a toddler to look after this time and maybe pregnancy has hit us harder 2nd time round. Xx

    As with kim, I think second time around everything starts earlier as our bodies are pre-stretched and we get a lot less time to rest. I'm certainly bigger than I was at this stage last time and I feel it when I try to carry my toddler and when walking to work. I'm going to try a pregnancy exercise class to up my fitness in hope this will help in the later weeks (when I just remember sleeping the whole time last time but doubt that will be possible this time!).

    I've posted a thread about this a couple of weeks ago. I always feel terrible. Exhausted, heavy, poorly. Baby is sticking out all of the place and sits in really uncomfortable positions. I swear I can feel her head under my ribs and her feet are stretching out by my pelvis. I don't know how I'll cope with another 17 weeks when she's not even very big yet!

    I am only in my 14th week and I also feel like this. Like, not right. I feel bloated after I have eaten every meal, can't get comfortable in bed or sleep very well, I have tummy aches a lot, my body has already got more stretch marks which sucks, and I still throw up a lot. TMI toilet habits are all over the place as well.

    Pregnancy is really really tough, I remember after having Sofia I just pinged pack to feeling normal, but in the meantime the weeks up to due date are really tough to get through aren't they?

    Each week that goes by and I am another week pregnant, I am so grateful that I am one week closer to having our baby, I am so ready for the summer and to meet the little one! xx
