I have been blessed with a very easy pregnancy this time. There was still plenty of complaining on my part, but that's all part of the fun of pregnancy, having a little moan now and then. But really, it's all gone very well. No problems at all.
Until yesterday. About midday my pelvis suddenly packed in. I can't think of what could have caused it. I did a lot of running around at the weekend and lifting some heavy things up and down the stairs. But not yesterday. Maybe it just took time to set in, I dunno. I'm thinking the baby just moved down and it was the final straw that broke the camel's pelvis...or my pelvis or whatever.
Anyway, I'm extremely uncomfortable now. It's slightly better this morning that last night, but I can still hardly take 2 steps without horrible pain. I can't squat or bend easily. I had SPD with my second pregnancy and it feels just like that. It could really impact the birth I want, I want to be active and mobile etc. Everytime one of the kids drops some cereal or a piece of trash on the floor I feel like crying because I know i'm going to have to find a way to bend over and pick it up and it's going to hurt like heck.
I was looking forward to the birth before, but still enjoying and savoring my last weeks of pregnancy. But now I am ready to just.be.done. I can't take this for 4 more weeks. I'm 38 + 2 I think. ish. I had one baby at 38 weeks when my water broke and they had to induce after 24 hrs of no labor. And one which was induced at 38 for other reasons. my others have all been late. And this one probably will be too. How on earth am I going to survive? I hate to be such a baby, but I am so sore and I can't imagine even surviving to the end of the day never mind 4 weeks. Ugh. I really really hope this baby breaks the mold and comes early. If nothing else, holding out that hope will get me through each day for now.
Who else wants to complain with me? Do you feel done? Have a moan about it and help me have some company in my misery.
