I have been having the weirdest sensation lately. I don't really think I get many contractions during the day, but every single time I wake up to pee at night my stomach is hard and kind of clenched around the outline of the baby, so maybe I'm having them while I sleep? And I always wake up in the morning with this weird feeling in my pelvic region that maybe my legs are further apart or something and the muscles on my inner thighs right where they join my body are sore....
I'm 37 weeks and it still feels like an it. Of course that isn't helped by the fact that we don't know the sex, so we even call it an it! I think I won't feel like it's an actual baby until I'm holding it.
Had an appointment today and was the first time I've seen a male OB. It kind of weirded me out just slightly.

Mine likes to go transverse while I'm sleeping. I think it doesn't like my belly being squished up against the bed and wriggles until it finds a more comfortable position - which unfortunately isn't so comfortable for me! Every time I have to heave myself up to pee it's like uuuggghhh giant sideways baby. It always goes back to vertical (hopefully vertex!) when I get up for the day though. It also likes to pull this neat trick where it will suddenly scoot over to the...
Thanks Melly!! Trying to muster up the enthusiasm to knit some babylegs, booties, and stuffies too but motivation is rapidly going down the toilet.
Thanks! I'm starting to feel so huge!
