I am there. Started having awful lower back pain and crampy icks last night. Kept me up allll night, dying for the heating pad, but not willing to fall alseep and burn my butt again. Lower back still crampy this morning and is so uncomfortable.<br><br>
I remember some lower back discomfort with my other's, but not this bad. No contrx with it that I can really tell (some last night), but just plain ole lower back pain outta the blue to torture me.<br><br>
Yesterday morning I told me mom, all Zen, "I could do this another month...feel pretty good!".....now I am contemplating removing her out of my ear with a spoon.<br><br>
Bah!

Just yesterday I admitted for the first time that I hope Bagel doesn't take another month (I'm 38+4 today).<br><br>
I want to be patient. I do. Emotionally, I am. Emotionally, I'm a little freaked out that I'm going to be a parent soon, that I'll know for sure what Bagel's sex is, that I'll find out if the name we have in mind fits, that I'll learn what Bagel looks like. I'm very excited about meeting my child, but emotionally I could hang in there for another couple of months if I needed to.<br><br>
Physically, I'm feeling every bit as pregnant as I am and wishing that I could walk like a normal person again. I wish I could sleep on my back. I wish all the contractions I keep having would develop into something.<br><br>
And Bagel's headbutting my cervix and kicking the laptop (only slightly perched at the top of my tummy) as I write this.

((hugs)) to you ladies! i completely understand! actually last week and the week before that i was completely miserable - hurting all over, swollen and heavy. but for some reason this week i feel great. this week i feel like i could hang on for another month. i don't know what it is. in the past week i have been soaking in a warm bath with epsom salt daily (i was doing it more so for my bp which had been rising). but i just feel overall better the next morning. hope you ladies feel better!

I totally hear you <b>Stark</b>. I want to be patient, but I'm not. I'm keep thinking, "when?!" and I know that isn't gonna help move things along. I'm excited to find out the sex, but have flashes of terror when I think about labour and delivery and becoming a Mom. I'm so conflicted!<br><br>
Let's get going! Uh... no, no, no, I can wait....

((((hugs)))) to you mamas, you can do this. It is supposed to be miserable at the end I think, it makes holding baby all the sweeter and after pains seem less hard as your used to being all ouchy. Or this might be my wishful thinking. I wasn't feeling very done before baby got here and goodness the after pains hit soooo hard.<br><br>
Please be kind to yourselves and make sure you take care of yourselves as much as you can. Ask for help!

It's like a slow grinding wearing down of ones physical abilities.<br><br>
Last night I didn't sleep so good...carpal tunnel had me wishing I could pop my arms off like a Barbie doll. I can't lay on my tummy or back, and laying directly on my sides makes me in one form or another on a shoulder which slowly cuts off circulation and aggravates the heck out of my carpal tunnel. Right when I get the pillow, blanket, body pillow, husband, propped up just so I think i can doze off...my bladder alarm goes off in 9-1-1 mode.<br><br>
It was all fun and funny and made for good jokes. But I'm seriously not smiling anymore. I sat on the edge of the bed last night, not wanting to even lay down and start the whole routine that my hubby compares to what our dogs do to bed down for the night...digging, rolling, circling etc. But I knew the longer I sat, the shorter time it would be between bladder alarms. I just started to cry. It doesn't help that me and two of my kids are still coughing from that cold back in February. Yeah. <i>February</i>. I mean come on! I think it's a combo of allergies and another minor cold-or the littlest may be teething. We are running humidifiers 24/7, nettle leaf tea for all and chugging down local honey....but the lack of sleep is just painful all the way around. Coughing and peeing is really seriously over rated. I'm so sick of wearing pads and prefolds constantly. Pregnancy is supposed to be fun in the sense that you get to be naked and not wear period pads and such...I got ripped off this time!<br><br>
I have my zen in the sense that I am totally loved and have so many in my family not only tolerating me, but just giving their all...cleaning, cooking, helping with little ones, letting me take naps and showers, really spoiling me and I'm not in massive major pain, nor do I have any health problems in the sense of elevated BP or a misaligned baby etc. We are not fighting all the time (which was once a reality) and overall everyone likes everyone else in the house-step family or not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
I'm really doing well, just this end of the journey stuff slowly wearing me down.

I'm just tired of being teased....horrible nights of cramps and back aches then full days of NOTHING...I'd rather have the horrible stuff during the day so I could at least SLEEP.<br><br>
Today I felt great then the cramps started up around 4....horrible pressure with them....then some BH...then back to the weird back and belly cramps....and yet no signs of anything happening...all I want is to sleep tonight and I'm just so moody and irritable after dealing with this every 10mins the last 3 hours...that I can't get comfy or settle down.
