Ugg...by the time about 4-5pm hits, I'm so over being pregnant. I can hardly walk. My lower back hurts, I have SOOOO much pressure down south, even my vaginal area feels numb LOL. Plus I have a lot more brax hix contrx. I get totally crabby.

It's odd, first thing in the morning I feel fine, almost "nonpregnant" feeling, heck I work out 3x a week for over an hour (like today) but later on, YIKES, I feel horrible and it kind of depresses me a bit.

Now much longer, right?

Not much longer. Honest.

I'm in the same boat. By 7pm, the BH have started, I feel bloated and uncomfortable, I'm crabby and tired and often have heartburn which means I can't lie down even though I really want to. Feh.

Soon. Soon, this will be over and we'll be holding our babes.

Total word here. By late evening, especially by 8 or 9pm the BHs have really kicked up and I'm getting TONS of shooting pains in my cervix/pelvis and rectal pressure. Then the next morning I feel pretty darn good again. Crazy. Yesterday was especially bad since it was such a stressful day and I didn't get a chance to rest for even a few minutes. Today will likely be the same.

Happy mama to DD (8-11-05) and DS (6-5-09) and married to my best friend and love of my life since 10-13-01.

I actually am not having near as many BH as I had been. Thank God!! I did find though that if I 'overdid' life when i felt good in the morning, the BH started sooner in the afternoon and lasted longer and were far more intense. Now, I just have occasional real cantractions. And so much pelvic pressure that I can hardly walk. Yesterday I honsetly had a backache that rivaled backlabor for G. UGH.

Hang in there. They say no one has ever been pregnant for forever. :hoever "they" are:: We are almost done!! :::

odd, I am not having that many BH contractions I guess! I only get them on my bike rides home, and not even every day. Should they be increasing at this point?

I worry that I am super far from labor now that my blood pressure is an issue, I just don't seem to be having many signs of it being anywhere near compared to most here it seems. No pressure down south, etc., baby I guess is not dropped at all, etc. I really hope I go into labor before my blood pressure rises enough that they induce me but it seems super far off to me!

Me too!!! Ugh, by 6pm I am so Done! Usually it's the combination of exhaustion plus my ribs can't take the pressure from his constant feet jabbing. Once I lay down for the night, I'm usually good. But the day sure takes a toll on me. I guess this is why they recommend taking it easy the last few weeks . Much easier said than done IMO.

I just got back from a visit to the midwife (weekly appt) and she asked if I was having lots of pressure...I said YES! My midwife did a lot of feeling around on my belly since I was measuring smaller than last week and sure enough, baby is engaged in the pelvis.
