LOL! I started doing some chiropractic this week - have received 3 adjustments in 5 days - and I am feeling better than I have felt in months! WOO-HOO! I can actually twist around to back out of my driveway

Actually, I remember feeling pretty good at the end with my ds too. I never had that "get it out of me!!!!" feeling. Its not that I don't have aches and pains - because I do - but my general feeling is happy, excited and just pretty darn good. Its almost like nothing is bothering me anymore...

Am I the only one who actually ENJOYS the end of pregnancy? Maybe its because I am only 38 weeks....? I hope this feeling lasts right up until the end though!

I felt just like you the first two times, but this time I feel like chasing toddlers and having them spaced relatively close together is taking a toll on my body. I've been having chiropractic and acupuncture, and while it's wonderful, I feel like it's just keeping the wheels from falling off at this point.

Anyway...if it were either of my other two pregnancies I'd be right there with you! I think it's part of why I was overdue with my first, I didn't have that "get out!!!" feeling. So you're not a total weirdo!

Hi, i'm new to the site and due Dec 15th. I feel the same way. I want to have the baby cause it's my first and i'm excited, but I feel really good! (knock on wood) I also go to the Chiropractor twice a week. It seems to help the back pain a lot. I even went to prenatal yoga today and my instructor said she never had a student as far along as I am (29 on Tuesday). I hope you continue to feel great!

Um...I don't think you are "crazy" exactly, but it definitely wasn't my experience I felt big and like a bear that eats too much honey and then lumbers through the woods, woozy and unpredictable.

It's great that you mamas feel so terrific!

I feel really good generally and am enjoying the last few weeks of pregnancy - relaxing as necessary, getting things ready, hanging out with friends. But that doesn't really stop the "wanting to have the baby" feeling. I don't think it's because I'm tired of pregnancy or even desperation to meet the baby. I think it's more that I'm so excited about my homebirth that I'm really excited for labor and birth itself. Weird! So on the one hand, every day I think this is going to be it but I'm not yet totally frustrated when it's not. But I'm only 38w5d so let's see how I feel in another 9 days when I hit my due date and still have potentially 2 weeks to go. I know I'll be pissed if I go past the 21st or 22nd (due the 16th) b/c I want this baby before xmas.

yes, i feel very good.

i'm almost embarrasssed to admit it... : i still sleep pretty well, and have no aches, pains or complaints.

however, at 40+3 i'm SO ready for this baby because i don't want to deal with the stress of going "late" (and how come this baby is so late already?! ).

I generally feel REALLY good when I'm preggo, other when I've overdoing it.

I usually like to lie down a few times for short periods each day 10-15 minutes. Well, didn't do it today. So, overdid it! So, today am a little achier than I usually am.

That's how I get too. I was so excited for my first baby's birth and now I feel the same excitement and anticipation for this birth. I wonder if being so excited somehow helps to negate the physical discomforts somehow?

The weird thing is that I do feel rather uncomfortable throughout the day, but I just feel so happy and excited that its like I just don't pay any attention to it or something.

I feel great! (38+ weeks) I'm overdoing it most days, and at the end of the day, I'm exhausted beyond words, but I'm loving every minute still. I'm 42 years old, home-schooling my kids (9 & 4), clearing household clutter, and redecorating my house so we can sell it in the spring ... I have lower back/hip pain, pubic pain, carpal tunnel, and I sleep like crap, but I try really hard not to whine about those things. I saw a chiropractor last week, and will continue to do so weekly now. I have an awesome massage therapist, too.

I do feel a little weird sometimes since I seem to be the only pregnant person I know who isn't "ready" to have the baby ... but I feel that, too, sometimes. But, DH and I are planning to take some nekked belly shots this week, and I have the stuff for a belly mold, so I need time to do those things. And, I've planned for a potluck afternoon with friends next Sunday! So, I'm really just not prepared to have this baby yet.

Today, I've been having mild crampy feelings, but I think it's cuz I've been overdoing things. Right now, baby is hiccupping and squirming like it does every night! DD1 was born at 37w, DD2 at 42w5d.
