sunshinelove, my feet don't seem to be worse than any of the rest of me, but I definitely relate to having a timer! After a certain point, my whole body is just done supporting itself, and that point keeps creeping earlier. I've even noticed it for sitting up. Unless I have the perfect well-supported sitting-up environment, after a while, I just want to lie down. And I'm still only at 34 weeks!
melany, I'm glad you all made it safely over the pass, even though it doesn't sound like any fun at all.
spughy, I've also felt like I've had a growth spurt again, though more baby than me (my belly suddenly seems much more crowded). But at my last appointment my midwife said I was "due" for another growth spurt, so I guess it's all good. I feel like the baby must be 20 lbs already, but I don't really have any idea!
maydaymom, it sounds like you had a great conversation with your friend. I feel like most people who haven't considered home birth picture it as taking place in a barn with a midwife who has no equipment and just holds your head and soothes you. I think it's important for people to understand that they have a choice, and know what those choices actually entail, so that they can really make the best decision for themselves!
veganyogamama, I hope you either get a break from your contractions, or they start progressing things so that you DO actually "just get to be done."
I've been going to my prenatal yoga class once a week, and this morning I am adding in a second class for the week. Very excited, and hoping it will help me loosen up some of the random aches and pains!
