I'm actually surprisingly not miserable at this point! I remember 36 weeks with my first - I have a picture where I just look like I want to die. My face was totally puffed, couldn't wear any shoes or rings, persistent back and shoulder pain, etc. I will be 36 weeks this Sunday, and I feel hardly any of that! Of course there is still time for everything to deteriorate . . . :)
My few complaints are: baby seems to either be sitting or stepping on my bladder all the time. My face is fatter than usual, making most pictures quite unattractive! (I always have a round face, so this gets exaggerated with pregnancy.) I have what I finally discovered are varicose veins in my vulva. Yes, that is as awful as it sounds. Constant itching, pulsing, pressure etc. I thought I had a yeast infection for the longest time, but had no other symptoms! My midwife took one look and said, "Oh yeah - it's just like hemorrhoids but up front!" That's probably my worst problem.
I wake up with stiff fingers and have some numbness and tingling in the morning or when I do repetitive action (kneading bread, etc). My blood pressure has been eh. I checked it at Whole Foods today in one of those arm-cuff machines, and it was 138/73 while I was wrangling my daughter and keeping her from pressing the STOP button. So I feel like that's pretty okay! It tends to really rise when I'm with the midwife, which is irritating.
