you have lovely bumps ladies. You all look pregnant and definitely not fat! Blonde- it's horrible being around non pregnant people. It always makes you feel huge and boring but you're not!

Ohh you all look so amazing!! Your drunk skinny friends are't carrying the beautiful gift of life inside them Blonde Dance the night away and let your amazing body fill you with confidence! I do feel a secret sense of womanly pride being pregnant if you know what I mean Glad the medication is working, hope it all gets better soon! xx

My stomach seems to be a lot of bloat and presumably some babies! It was quite flat before, so it's definitely feeling stretcheeeed.

My oh is finally coming over to the UK to join me in a couple of days. It's his 31st on the 8th, so I'm thinking about booking a private ultrasound as a bday present, as he hasn't seen them since 9 weeks and we should be able to find out the gender by then!

Are you girls enjoying being pregnant? I feel guilty saying it, but I feel really sick and fed up and not enjoying it at all. I feel like I should be over the moon but I can't wait for it to be over.

I feel the same. Even if the sickness has gotten better I sometimes get nauseous, I have to eat small meals all the time and I'm not normally a snack person. Running to the bathroom every five minutes, and constipation. Also got quite a bit of stretching pain, and have started experiencing some round ligament pain when I get up from being seated. Meanwhile no bump. I just feel sick more than pregnant. Everyone keeps telling me I should be happy and I'm mostly grumpy, when I'm not panicking (still haven't gotten over the shock of there being two babies).
So you're not the only one.

I'm enjoying it now, but the first 14 weeks were awful, despite the fact I got off pretty lightly with symptoms. Just trying to soak it all in and enjoy it as much as possible before the third trimester hits and I'm whiny and uncomfortable!

Ugh I'd be really annoyed if people were telling me to be happy though, they have no idea how you're feeling...

Me too, I've got horrible round ligament pain, I can't lie on my back or sit for long. I'm still being sick but it's more like every couple of days instead of multiple times per day, and at least not feeling nauseous all day every day like before.

And I feel the same re shock of two. I feel like I could handle one, but two is very scary. I worry about the fighting over toys and double nursery fees (along with double everything else). I have friends with twins though, and they said that whilst the early days were hard, the girls are 5 now and play together all the time and keep themselves occupied, which is lovely.

We'll be ok

I think we feel pressure to be that glowing, smiling pregnant woman and that just isn't the reality for most of us! Don't feel guilty, you've had a bloody rough time.. That's a lovely idea for his Birthday present though - how exciting!! Hope you feel better soon, I really enjoyed the second trimester with my first.. Energy levels up, excitement at your growing bump.. 1st trimester worry gone but 3rd trimester discomfort not there yet.. It was great! Hope you get to enjoy it xx

Laura what does your round ligament pain feel like ? I've got something like I feel like I've pulled a muscle & it twinges when I do things like get up from the toilet or have been sitting for a while?

I've had it since about 6 weeks, but it feels like a pulled muscle in my tailbone area. Sometimes it hurts when I walk, and it the early weeks it was excruciating to walk at times, but now it's mostly set off by sitting or lying down and having anything make contact with that area. When I stand up, it's pretty sore for a while. Have to sleep on my side, too.

Ah right bless you have you tried any exercise to help at all?

I asked my consultant about the whole having to lay on left side & not on your back etc as I was always making sure I was on my left & ending up waking in the night with achy hip ! And she said don't stress left or right is fine & on your back as you get bigger your body will tell you that it can't do it. X

I don't stick with any specific side, I usually toss and turn for a while until I'm comfy. The only kind of exercise I'm doing these days is gentle walks. Pillow between legs helps!

Despite all my moaning, I'm very excited now that I have this gender scan booked! I am trying to round up my family for lunch that day, so I can make a "gender reveal cake". I'm going to bake a cake and put two smarties inside, either blue or pink. I might engineer it carefully so that my grandma gets the smarties slices, as I think she will get quite excited about it.

Ahh Laura that's such a cute idea! I'd love to do a gender reveal of some kind but my OH thinks it's way too cheesy and honestly, I think the majority of my family's/friend's reactions would be so disappointing

Lovely idea Laura!
Oh wow BlondeP that is really emotional! I always cry at weddings even on TV! Heard a baby cry in M&S yesterday and felt upset as it sounded like our little cat who is missing.
