I'm sorry to be so negative, and I know I am so lucky to have a baby on the way. I just need an outlet for how rubbish I'm feeling and just wondering if anyone else is feeling less than euphoric about pregnancy? I'm 36 weeks now so not long to go but still does feel like an age until baby is here. I feel absolutely exhausted. Everything is an effort. Even after walking up the stairs I have to sit down for 10 mins to recover. I can't eat a lot but also don't really want to as food turns my stomach. I'm itching all over ( have been checked, nothing nasty) which is driving me nuts and also have restless leg syndrome. Night times are awful as I can't get comfortable what with painful hips and ribs and getting up every couple of hours for a wee. Braxton hicks, heartburn, constipated and bloomin haemorrhoids too!! I have a 3 year old to look after and I have feelings of guilt that I'm not able to give him the time and energy he needs and I really should be as his world is about to change so much. I feel like a really horrible person to be around and that my partner is starting to dislike me as I'm always so bloody miserable. I have a c section booked as I have placenta preavia and the anxiety of that is getting to me. I have to have a self salvage blood transfusion has anyone heard of that? I am going through the motions of my life and just feel no joy at all. Sorry for being so miserable
