OMG...I am soooo uncomfortable

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

i am 31 weeks 4 days and I am increasingly uncomfortable and in pain. I do not remember having this much trouble with my last one.

i do understand teh need for the long gestational period so that this lo can grow and be healthy but i have to admit that if she came tomorrow I would be ok with it.

My major issues is my swollen legs...the right more than the left, and my increasing pelvic discomfort.

night time is a nightmare with turning over the pillow is not helping much anymore and standing and walking are increasingly difficult.


is anyone else having this trouble?


I am sorry i just had to rant and have a pity party but i hurt and my dh doesn't get it.

I am having this trouble, yes. Trying to sleep on these hips is a nightmare, walking is excruciating, and I can't get comfortable in any position greensad.gif

The pelvic pain, especially. What helped me is to float in a pool for about an hour but then DO NOTHING AT ALL. If I would walk around after or do pretty much anything, the pain was worse at night and the next day.

this has been better that last two days and I am not sure why. I wish we had apool but it is so super hot that I am not sure we would bear the heat to go in it.

I just keep telling myself head up and let her cook b/c she needs it even if I am in pain.


::hugs:: mamas not much longer for us.

YES!!  It doesn't matter what position I'm in, walking, standing, sitting or lying, I'm uncomfortable.  I've been going to aquasize and that actually feels the best.  I think tonight, I'll try and get dd to go to the pool with me, they have family swim nights on Monday and Wednesdays.  Then Tues/Thursdays and Saturday mornings are aquasize.  We also have a friend with a pool that I could go to, but I hate to invite myself all the time.  We went over there yesterday - were planning on the public pool and she found out and invited us over, it thundered about 2 minutes after we got in so we didn't get our swim in :( .  But swimming seems to make me feel the best and I sleep so much better after!  Plus, my ankles have started to swell just a little bit and the swimming really helps with the swelling as well.

I am 29 weeks. I have pubic symphysis pain that has gotten really bad in the past couple weeks. This morning I woke up and could barely roll over. When I worked up the courage to move I heard a horrible cracking noise in my hips. For a moment I was like, "they are going to bust apart!" Most of the day I'm fine as long as I don't pick up my toddler too much, walk long distances, or do pretty much anything involving too much twisting, squatting, etc. But laying down at night is awful. I feel better sleeping on my back than my side. I know that should be okay as long as I don't start feeling dizzy or anything but anytime I think about it, I'm like, "Do I feel dizzy? Wait maybe I am dizzy?" I think it's in my head. My first pregnancy was so comfortable the whole way through. This time I am already counting down the weeks, hoping I don't see past 41 weeks again.
