Thought I was getting off easy..

So far my pregnancy has been normal, some morning sickness, not terrible. Well, I hit 31 weeks... now it is harder to sleep, harder to walk, harder to breath, harder to laydown, harder to stand up... When I turn from one side to the other at night, it feels like my belly is ripping in half. I tried to take a walk around the block, lol, I got half way and my belly felt so tight and heavy. I had a ton of lower abdominal pressure, I had to stop and sit down, and then turn around and go back home.

I am drinking a ton of water, so no swelling yet (knock on wood).. but I had to get out of bed FOUR times to pee last night & that is not counting right before I laid down and right after I woke up.

Fun times. Vent Over. Anyone want to use my post to complain and get it over with, feel free :)

Re: Thought I was getting off easy..

  • I remember how tough the end was. You are so close! Hang in there! Take it easy, no unnecessary walks Smile You'll have plenty of time to get back in shape after babies are here.

  • Gosh - I remember that like it was yesterday! I can't imagine feeling like that and having a little one running around. You are doing a great job! At this point, just be as lazy as possible and enjoy the calm before the wonderful storm!

  • I'm currently 35 weeks and super grumpy. My feet hurt my back hurts and I'm so itchy at night. And I can't seem to get a good night's rest. 

    I can't wait till this is over! Good luck to you.

  • Thanks ladies!! Everyone is so supportive on this board. I feel like you guys really do get how I feel because you have been there/are there when other people would just nod & agree.

  • Hang in there!  I started feeling that way around 27 weeks.  Take it easy, I found getting up to walk to the bathroom was all I could handle!  Surprisingly right after I had my boys, the back aches, hip pain and knee pain all went away!!!  I'm still dealing with numbness in my legs and stomach but it's slowly getting better.  You don't have to much longer to go!!!

  • First of all, why in the world are you trying to walk around the block.  Stop that. Smile

    Secondly, I must be some kind of sicko because your post makes me miss being pregnant.  Although I don't think I would want to be pregnant with a LO running around.  I enjoyed being pregnant and lying about like a walrus.

  • It will be a distant memory I promise!  My babies are 7 months old and I can't even remember anymore how miserable I was.  I can't even really remember how miserable 13 weeks of bedrest felt.  Mommy amnesia is amazing!

    Hang in there.

  • And not to mention the rib pain and numbness....that is a true joy.  I'll see you 4 pees and raise you two.  ;)
