Congratulations!!
I feel the same tropicana - that I'm really pregnant, but know I have a long way to go.  I'm tired a lot now, and cranky, and it's hard to lean over for anything or get comfortable in any way - whether it's sitting on the couch or laying down to sleep.  My babies don't drop until labor and I'm so short of breathe all the time with this babe now - do *not* remember having this with any of the others - which I can only imagine is going to get worse 4 or 5 more baby pounds...
I'm completely with you on the claustrophobia (partnered with crankiness for me).  My 7 yr old is very physically affectionate, and I find myself snapping at her, esp as the night progresses.  She wants to give me these running hugs and climb all over me and I can't handle it right now.  Sitting on the couch last night with two of the kids and my dp - I thought I was going to freak;)  I've finally hit that place where my belly is so big that I'm uncomfortable sitting...
I would definitely second the arnica.  Although if it's from scarring, nothing may reduce the lip too greatly... but it does seem like arnica would help a lot with keeping the swelling at bay as much as possible.    Have you read this article?  http://midwifethinking.com/2011/01/22/the-anterior-cervical-lip-how-to-ruin-a-perfectly-good-birth/ It may be more specific to a different cervical lip situation than you're experiencing sego - but I like the overall...
Sounds good! 
Congratulation cieloazul!  And what a pretty name.  xoxox   
Sleep - like mamadiamond said, your body will be able to do it, even if you've been lacking in sleep.  Could all the worrying be part of what is keeping you awake at night though?  Have you tried the cal/mag before bed?  You can do this!    As discussed in the other thread, your baby can easily still switch, even if it's at the last minute or even if it's during labor, back to anterior.  I would not even consider this a concern at this point.  And as mamabeakley...
From what I've read and heard anecdote wise, epo does very little to "help" in any way.  I haven't heard anything either way about borage oil...      But my understanding is also that cervical lips seem to generally be a result of malpositioning during labor - so I'm not sure that oiling up for weeks ahead of time would make a difference in that case.  But if you like doing it...?   http://www.mothering.com/community/t/556461/what-do-you-do-for-a-cervical-lip
Just in the last week or two I've often only been getting up to pee once in the night - babe is so high that I don't have to pee as much, but like I said, am out of breath all the time.  But my sleep has been more painful and I've been getting more insomnia/mixed up with being more tired and needing more sleep.  Not much fun.     shop link for chica: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Prudence?ref=si_shop
I've used these booties with my new babes in the past, and they're wonderful!  They're perfect for winter because they're lined with sheepskin, and the suede outside makes them softer/more pliable/warmer than leather.  And they stay on. http://www.softstarshoes.com/suede-roo-forest-turquoise.html I also love these little sweater suits at Hanna Andersson and have gotten a lot of use out of them for my babies in the...
