I don't know if it the baby causing it on the inside, but my belly hurts. Like I've done a million sit-ups the day before and now it's hurting, even to cough.

How are you feeling? - Page 74post #1461 of 17198/3/13 at 10:52pmpost #1462 of 17198/3/13 at 11:38pmpost #1463 of 17198/4/13 at 1:34amThread Starterpost #1464 of 17198/4/13 at 7:57amMy belly seems to feel less sore this morning. She must have been quiet throughout the night. Or I guess like lilmamita said it could be from being up and moving. I've been up more the last 2 days than I should be. But, the spots that get sore are hwr favorite places to push out. Sorry to hear about the panic attacks lilmamita. I too get panicky when I have a low blood sugar and sometimes when my blood pressure gets too low. I've never dealt with real anxiety or panic attacks so I don't have any real advice for you. I would say you should start slowing down some. Listen to your body.
Almost all of this girls movements have become painful for me now. I must have very sensitive insides. She rarely makes it up to my ribs, she's very low. Which comes with a whole new set of discomforts. I hate waking up hungry in the middle of the night letnia! It is so frustrating.post #1465 of 17198/4/13 at 9:04am
lilmamita - I feel the same way about the walking taking more out of me now. I feel like in the last 10 days or so the third trimester has really just hit me. In the second tri, I could go the whole day without needing a nap and run around with the kids in the heat as much as I could when I wasn't pregnant (or almost!) but now, like if I do more than 4 chores in a row, I need to sit and rest. I feel like a total lazybones, but when I adjust (nap, more reading on the couch in-between chores), I feel a lot better.post #1466 of 17198/4/13 at 9:10amI too can't do much without having to rest. Even acing a shower takes it out of me and I need a sit down. If I go out to the shops I have to sit down every 10-20 minutes and I'm really slow now. Oh and bending over is practically impossible now, it must be these last few weeks, I suppose it will get harder😏post #1467 of 17198/4/13 at 4:45pm
Add me to the list of yeast suffers...Boo. I knew when I took antibiotics for my UTI it would happen, but it's really bad. Nothing is helping, I even resorted to the OTC stuff. I'll call tomorrow and get a script for Diflucan called in, because I'm not screwing around after the last two days of being miserable. Plus, I get overrun (like under my breasts, all over my entire crotch, etc) with yeast really easy, and even the idea of it makes me want to scream. Ugh. To make matters worse, I'm pretty sure my UTI hasn't entirely cleared, which will likely mean MORE antibiotics, thus continuing the cycle.
And DF wonders why I get frustrated when he asks me what I'd like to drink, and I always say water all the time because I have had this UTI issue for so long, and then he brings me like half water and half sugar sweetened green tea, or cherry lime juice-because all the water must get old. Well, actually, no. But he doesn't get it because he rarely drinks just water so to him it would be awful. FOr whatever reason I'm just really sensitive and if I drink anything but water except on occasion, I get a UTI.post #1468 of 17198/4/13 at 6:04pmQuote:Originally Posted by MamaMash

Yes, I think it is low blood sugar and some heat exhaustion for the most part. I'm trying to be really careful about eating ever hour or hour and a half, as my MW recommended. Just something small, a handful of almonds, a slice of bread with hummus, a cup of milk.
As aidenn said, I really do think the third trimester has just hit me like a ton of bricks. For most of the pregnancy I haven't really had to change any of my habits or activities, so I think I'm just having a hard time adapting to needing to take it easy. But I've been making it abundantly clear to DP and my parents that I have been feeling worn out and need to start taking it easy, so hopefully they will help me do that. DP has been doing all the cleaning in the part of the house we are staying in and he did all our laundry today, so that has been really nice. I just get to take a nap while he cleans and organizes. He doesn't mind it cause he hates sitting still and not doing anything and since he's not working while he's here, cleaning has become how he fills his free time. He's also getting to a point where he can get to his English classes, the store, and other places on his own...so I don't have to take him everywhere and can rest more.
the freckledmama, ooh, I hope you can get your yeast cleared up. That's the pits. When I was struggling with this a few months back, ketaconazole suppositories were what finally worked for me. Hope your doctor can help you out with something that gets rid of it for good.
serena, I'm always forgetting I can't bend over anymore until I try to do it and then I have to let out a huge grunt to get back up. And kneeling or squatting down, forget about it.post #1469 of 17198/6/13 at 3:50ampost #1470 of 17198/6/13 at 5:14am
I had the biggest culinary regret ever over the weekend. My sister had a tea party which also involved a Domino's pizza delivery, and how how I gorged! This was a very bad move considering I'm gluten intolerant and generally eat primally. Thanks to the way I eat I'm pretty regular, but this time was not a happy experience! It was like birthing a practice baby, and my poor piles are still angry at me a couple of days later. But I can tell you now, I am never straying from primal again!
I've also been lacking in sleep lately due to having to get up for the loo about four times a night, but I think the baby must have moved because I'm suddenly peeing less at night, which is such a relief! But today I am very tired since my daughter decided that she needed to keep asking me if her Daddy was up yet frequently from 4am until 6am. I was not pleased. This was all because she wanted to sleep on her Dad's side of the bed for some reason. And I had to get up early to get the phone line fixed.
But I feel I shouldn't be moaning with all the problems you guys are having! I seem to be having it easy in comparison.post #1471 of 17198/6/13 at 7:47am
serena76 - I have an extra-twisty set of intestines (per hereditary issues) and we usually only poop 1-2x per week. For me, it's worse when I am pregnant, and I feel like I've tried everything short of an enema. One "easy" thing that has been working much better for me is eating a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses per day. It's sometimes a little spendy, but it's helped make me a "one a day" girl, despite my anatomical issues. Bonus, it's super high in iron so it's a good way to keep your iron up without the added constipation!post #1472 of 17198/6/13 at 9:11pm
I'm 36 weeks today think I'm ALMOST to the point of feeling 'done.' I never thought that would happen, as the thought of having a baby kinda terrified me, but I have such bad pelvic pain, combined with swollen feet and just all the hugeness (and the pregnancy brain), that I'm feeling more and more ready to have the baby out.
The only thing that makes me feel not ready is that we just moved and everything is disorganized, and we still need more things for the baby. All that is really stressing me out today. The room we're staying at in someone else's house is full of clothes and boxes and is making me so upset (usually I don't care...maybe I'm nesting). I'm in a lot of pain so it's hard for me to go through it all; I have to rely on DH who is busy working. I feel like so overwhelmed; this baby could be here in A WEEK and everything is a mess ahhhhh! OK Breathe......post #1473 of 17198/7/13 at 12:36ampost #1474 of 17198/7/13 at 5:36amSleepless here at 5.30pm. Woke up because of general discomfort, some part of my body always hurts these nights. Belly's getting heavy. Something like pelvic pressure and some stinging pain.. I keep feeling like I'm about to lose the mucus plug, if that makes any sense.
My arms and ears keep falling asleep or otherwise get numb when I lie on one side for too long. I'm 32 1/2 weeks.. I don't expect it to get any better in the time remaining.post #1475 of 17198/7/13 at 11:52amKaliHekate I'm 36 weeks Friday and I'm DONE. This is my second so i'm not as worried about the newborn baby stuff. I am worried about a toddler an a newborn, but my discomfort and boredom (bedrest) outweigh all that stuff. I hope you can get all your things organized and ready before baby makes an appearance.
nettlesoup sorry you are feeling so fed up with you dd. Maybe she can just sense a the change coming up.
vc2013 ugh I hate to tell you this, but its just going to get worse hang in there!
I'm so tired. I haven't really done anything in over 3 weeks. Which is probably contributing to my tiredness. That and the fact that I'm just about 36 weeks pregnant. I also have zero appetite. I'm tired of having to force myself to eat. It's not not fun. And this baby is so low that I'm already quite swollen down there. I'm tired of the daily painful contractions. I'm just tired.post #1476 of 17198/7/13 at 11:57ampost #1477 of 17198/7/13 at 12:15pmQuote:Originally Posted by MamaMash

i'm so glad your baby's still put at 36 weeks! FTM question possibly: are you trying to keep it in there till 40 weeks? or is there a point, 38 weeks maybe or so, where you could safely deliver and have everything be ok with the baby? (DF was 3 weeks early and apparently there were no problems with that, so i'm wondering if one really has to go till 40 weeks or if a bit earlier would be fine too.)post #1478 of 17198/7/13 at 12:24pmQuote:Originally Posted by vc2013

The longer you can keep the baby in there the better. To a point obviously. Technically, 37 weeks is full term for a singleton. I'm not overly comfortable with 37 weeks personally. I would feel much better with 38 weeks. I'm pretty sure the longest my doctor will let me go is 39 weeks because of all these minor complications and my previous c section. I wouldn't try to induce my own labor until 38 weeks. But that's just me! I am hoping to be off bedrest at 37 weeks and be up moving around. So hopefully by 38 weeks I can have this baby! That would be fabulous. But I can wait an extra week if she's not ready.post #1479 of 17198/7/13 at 12:35pmMy oldest was born at 37 weeks and aside from being small-6lbs 3oz, she was and is perfectly healthy.
That being said, I had an amino with my 3rd at 38 weeks to check her lungs for maturity to induce early, and they were not. So while 37 is considered term, as close to 39/40 weeks as you can get is ideal.post #1480 of 17198/7/13 at 12:51pm
This is somewhat annoying, because it makes it sound like moms are always asking for induction, but interesting article nonetheless: http://healthland.time.com/2011/08/26/patience-please-39-weeks-is-the-new-thinking-about-when-to-deliver-babies/
