Yikes! Until about 3 days ago I felt fantastic- better than I've ever felt at this point in a pregnancy, and now? Dying. Uggg.

 

My girls both got a cold and shared it with me. I keep getting insane leg cramps that keep me up. Tonight I had really weird and terrifically painful cramping and spasms in my bum cheeks and back of thighs that were beyond my ability to cope with and I had to go lay down. And worst of all I have a rib that keeps popping out of place so breathing feels like I'm being stabbed in the lungs. OWWWWWW. I've been to the chiropractor twice in 3 days, and this last time it stayed put for less than 4 hours. It felt so good to breathe pain free for 4 hours! But still, I can't spend 40$/day for the next 3 weeks... Ack.

 

It's time for this baby to come on out. The thought of 3 or more weeks of this is just too much.

 

How's everybody else coping?

Sciatic pain and mild/moderate SPD pain are what is giving me hell over here!

::hugs:: and I hope you start feeling better again soon! That sounds horrible about your rib popping out!

That rib thing does sound awful!  Gives me some perspective and I will stop complaining that my baby appears to be bruising the inside of my back ribs.

Agreed! This makes me realize I am fortunate to be feeling quite good, all things considered. Here's hoping baby arrives promptly, onemomma!

Yeah, last week I felt fine and hunky-dory.  Scheduled appointments with my MW all the way through 41 weeks, and it was no biggie.   Yesterday, I just got this huge wave of "I don't want to do this anymore" feelings.  The thought of going late is seriously overwhelming.  Blah.   Feeling huge and hot and irritable.  

 

onemomma, i am SO sorry.  I had really bad rib pain with my #2 that sounds similar- I had a swollen, inflamed, black and blue spot on my back where you could actually feel the ribs poking out.  If you applied pressure, you could watch and feel the baby move back in.  So painful.  The cause of many tears during my third trimester.   Hugs to you.

not coping well!  I oscilate back and forth between bursts of crying and severe anger.  I don't like the way that I am right now; I'm not as kind as I usually am.  the heartburn is atrocious and I have tendonitis in my left wrist so bad that I cant dress myself!!  my boobs are a 36 H!  everything hurts.

 

3 more weeks until due date; I could be pregnant for 5 more weeks!?  im just going nuts.

 

I am doubting my ability as a mother; everything stresses me out or makes me anxious.  is she ok?  is this choice ok?  is this bassinet safe enough?  why hasn't my husband installed the FREAKING infant car seat yet, etc etc  am I going to be happy; will my marriage suffer?  What if I don't like being a mom?  what if the PPD is too much for me and lasts over a year and I'm always like this?

 

even my yoga practice isn't helping.  it's so overwhelming.

I can relate to all of this.  The heartburn has been killing me the past few days.  For overnight, kefir helps a lot.  Just a few sips and I can sleep!  My left wrist has been hurting too, but I can still do most things, squeezing or putting pressure on it is what hurts.  Boobs, ugh, they just don't stop growing and now they are getting rashy under'them.
