Hey Dawn.. ive put a stone on so far, so not too bad.
My back, well dont even go there. It kills, everytime i get up or move sitting down i get a pain at the top of my bum crack (please excuse the bad term lol), it shoots up my spine. Told midwife and she said its the tail bone at the base of your spine, all the muscles are now moving around it so it has more room to move which causes the pain.

im having to stretch out by about 5 o clock in the evening as sitting upright in a chair is just too uncomfortable on my ribs!
i put on another 3 lb this week and some people have told me thats the weight gain may slow down for a few weeks now...i think its pretty much all down here from now on though as everyday that passes i have something else to moan about...lol.

hiya, yes my pounds have been piling on...but th last 2 weeks i have put on a pound a week, the week before was 3 lb and it was 2 or 3 pounds each wek before then.
i was told that more weight goes on in the third trimester but to be honest im not too worried as i think its different with everyone.
its killing my back though and sleeping is a night mare...are you finding sleeping a problem?

Hello again. I think you can get support belts to help your back, i might have to invest in one myself.
Yeah sleeping is so difficult, cant seem to get baby in the right place, if i sleep on my right it kicks me low down and pushes against the bed and laying left just doesnt feel right either. When or if i finaly get comphy and get off to sleep i end up waking up an hr later needing a wee.
Still itl all be worth it in the end. xx

lol yeah i know how u feel. ive just been for my check up with the midwife and she says to try and get an hours sleep in the day sometime and then you should sleep better at night. the thing is though i seem to always have something to do in the day and i feel like a right lazy mare if i sit down for too long let alone sleep.
last night i slept on the setee for a few hours as the leather was nice and cold on my legs and i felt sorry for paul as i didnt want to keep him awake!!
