Niggles of the Third Trimester

I am finally near the end of this pregnancy and I still feel like I have a long way to go. I know this is going to sound really weird but I have only just started feeling pregnant and I mean truly pregnant.

In my 32nd week of this pregnancy and I have started to feel the baby’s weight on my hips, pelvis and back my midwife advised me that this was because the baby’s head is now down so more pressure on my pelvis and the rest.

It’s so ridiculous and embarrassing that I find it very hard to get up from seats I have to ask my partner for help when getting up from low seats and on the train, I have to do that scoot forward and hold on and then push myself up, I bet that looks weird.

So where can I start oh yes so the constant backache, feeling heavy at all times, waddling (so embarrassing), finding a comfortable position to sleep in and the most annoying feeling the need to pee all the time?

Every time I go out somewhere I want to make sure I am near a toilet as I always getting the need and the feeling that I need to pee even when I do not need to. I do actually think this is the worst part of pregnancy I do sometimes get anxious about where I am going and if there is a toilet nearby.

Once I remember my partner and I have just left the house and we were on our way out to the shops and then I started to feel like I needed to pee so badly even though I had just gone to the toilet twice before I left the house. I have to tell you my partner was not impressed when I had to tell him that I needed to go back home to pee I think if I was not pregnant he would have definitely said no.

But he just looked at me and said yes let’s go back home then, I have to say when I did get home I actually did not to pee as much as I thought I did but I never told him this as I felt bad.

I have to say that my favourite part about the third trimester is all the different movements and kicks that I get from bump I just love watching and feeling them move I will miss this very much.
