    What size are you hun, thier sixes can be VERY generous. I'd say their xl's could be up to a size 20 and the xxl's 20-22, maybe more. Though you would probably have totry stuff on. It can be a bit hit and miss. The sizes aren't small though. I tried on a pair of xl jeans and they literally fell off me. I'd be at about an 18 now.

    Glad you've got some comfy clothes! I've made the horrid discovery that I've expanded out of my pumpkin patch jeans My belly is just too big and they're sooo uncomfy.

    Hey, how's everyone doing?

    I thought I was doing very well with minimal weight gain... UNTIL.... I picked up my son then hopped on the scales and my weight stayed the same ARGH so now I have no idea on how much I've put on STUPID SCALES. I do know that my clothes are feeling really uncomfortable but I'll have to make do in the meantime due to financial reasons...

    I can't believe how exhausted I am this pregnancy, not sure if it's just due to our 2.5 year old or my size... I'm ready find it difficult to get out of deep chairs, and I'm sure I'm starting to walk funny, not waddling yet but won't be long

    I hope all is well for everyone else...

    I have put back on 3kg of the 7kg I lost in my 1st tri....but I havent had a very good diet lately and am DYING for some veggies, so I put it down to that. It certinally doesn't help that until yesterday, I had been constipated for 4 weeks (so was very bloated too).

    I think I am needing a new bra...when I was preg with P my breasts never chaged size, engorged or whatever, so I am having a hard time telling if I actually need a bigger one or not this time. I don't wear maternity bras - my boobs are too big and I need proper support.

    I HATE being measured up for a bra so I really don't want to go. I usually go to a specialist bra store in the city, but still don't like flashing them to people.

    I might have a look at the Pumpkin Patch tops. Tops are my main problem even when I am not preg...I am tall and have a long torso so 99% of the stuff I try on is too short. I have big boobs but tiny shoulders, so it's a pain in the ass to try to get something to fit. In my last preg, I never wore any maternity clothes...all too big in the boobs and shoulders (despite my large chest).

    Where do I get the PP maternity stuff? I have only been to one PP store - in the city - and it has no maternity stuff. Can I get it online?

    Hi all

    Danielle - I'm really uncomfy and tired too

    Angela - Yep, you can get the PP stuff online. Where abouts do you live?

    AFM
    Been having a few dramas here. I'm hot, uncomfy and I just want this next 8 weeks to be over and done with. Having blood pressure issues (stress related) and found out today that I have put 15kg on this pregnancy so I'm really not happy. Not much I can do about it - due to my PKU I have no choice but to keep pumping in the calorie supplements or risk an unhealthy, maybe even brain damaged baby. I'm really going to have my work cut out for me on losing the weight once she's here though

    So yeah. The blood pressure isn't great. I had an appointment today and I completely freaked them out and they sent me straight up to fetal monitoring. By the time I got there my blood pressure had bottomed out and so they were very confused. They were expecting me to just collapse in a heap, not end up with blood pressure on the lower end of normal when it had been dangerously high less than 15 minutes earlier. So now I've had my blood pressure taken so many times today that I feel like my arm is about to drop off!

    On the upside, bub is doing very well... measuring slightly ahead for dates, great heart rate, lots of movement and she's head down and ready to go

    Argh my blood pressure did that ALL the time in my first pregnancy! Had v high bp and all the signs of pre-eclampsia (protein in wee and etc) but then once they got me in for monitoring, it would level off. It wasn't until I was in labour and my bp reached 250-something over 250-something that they diagnosed me with pre-eclampsia.

    Yep...also very uncomfortable here. Boobs STILL sore - I thought that was meant to go away after 1st tri!?

    Have my frst clinic appointment next week (apparently - Hospie called me on Tues and said I missed an appointment, but I wasn't even told I had one!) and also my anatomy scan.

    Not nice!!! My boobs never stopped being sore. Pretty sure there's no PE here... I'm having some major, major family related personal issues and when I manage to relax my blood pressure drops off dramatically so pretty sure it's all stress.

    Feels like I have two weights strapped to my chest :-D

    I am STILL in my PJs today (12pm here) and am not wearing a bra. Hurts too much.

    to all of you girls who are uncomfy and not having a good time! I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself too. Really frustrated and bored here. I can't do much with my back and hips, I'm not sleeping much and I just feel crappy in general. Though thankfully I can say I am healthy other than my stupid back. I guess I am lucky, I don't have any major issues other than that, like high bp, just minor annoying stuff ike heart burn, sore swollen feet, sore ribs....the usual pg things!
    I decided last week that I would stop eating badly with the pg being my excuse. I did and I'm happy to say I have been healthy all week. Though tonight is grocery night and traditionally we have a pretty junky meal (though not take away since we don't really have anything out here in the sticks! Usually just something like a pizza from the or meat pies) and some indulgences like chocolate or ice cream. LOL, I can't wait!! Hehe, I have missed my naughty food! But I need to stop having crap every day.
    I don't know how much weight I have put on yet, its been a few weeks since I weighed myself, I go back to the doc next week for my last monthly check, then I'm down to fortnightly! Wow, these last few months have really flown! But so far I have put on 9kg. A bit depressing since that's what I put on in my entire pregnanies both times before.

    Yarrawin, sorry to hear you had such a scare today! My BP was starting to rise (but still within "normal" range) last visit and I expected it to have gone up further today, but was relieved to see it had gone back down slightly. I guess that means mine was stress-related too, as I had hoped. I'm glad to hear bub is doing well. Sounds like everything you're doing is keeping her healthy, so try not to stress over the unwanted side effects. You're doing well by the sounds of it.

    Danielle, sorry to hear about the scales playing silly buggers with you. I hope your weight gain isn't as much as you are imagining. On the fatigue issue, if it helps, I was super exhausted between 16-20wks. Even iron supplements didn't help and then it suddenly ended. Hopefully it's just a stage and things will improve soon so you have more energy to chase your 2.5yo around.

    AAS, I bit the bullet and got some maternity bras. I ended up buying 16FF, so I was skeptical of them being supportive, but (aside from me missing my underwire terribly) they're not too bad. The ones I got are from Hot Milk. I'm also having terrible trouble with tops because of my bust size. I have found 2 that are the right shape for me, which is just not enough.

    Afm, appt today went well. Managing to maintain a (fairly) constant weight and BP was almost back down to where it had been previously. Passed my GTT and no anemia, so relieved about those too. Bub has been breech at the last two appts, but not a cause for concern yet.

    DH is still nesting on a grand scale. We got a quote for curtains/blinds this week (almost $5k so we can't afford to get them all done), he's got someone coming tomorrow to service/repair the a/c's and the roof of our new patio should be up by Saturday. The new floors (for 3 bedrooms, including the nursery, plus the study) went in a couple of weeks ago. The house may not be recognisable by the time he finishes, but maybe that's his plan?

    Juniper - that's why I like renting...we only have to ditch the office and turn it into a bedroom - we're not allowed to paint, change the window fittings (although new ones are much needed) and etc.

    I had a Hot Milk brand maternity bra with my last pregnancy and found that the cup sizes run rather small. I am usually a 16-18 G (depending on the brand...I have some 18s and some 16s) but I think I might be starting to push a H now.

    I also like a bra that is bit 'thicker' in the cup than Hot Milk is...I have pierced nipples, and now if I wear a thinner bra, you can see easily that they have a bar through them.

    Triumph is my usual brand but I find them poorly made and they don't last long. They rip and tear and the wires poke through the fabric after 3 months.

    Lol @ your DH, that's cute. My DH said something disgustingly clucky last night and it really shocked me LOL. He was cooing and ahhing over baby photos on the internet. I am SO not clucky and never have been...I have babies becuase he wants them, not becuase I want them lol.
