  • hmmm let's see. More pelvic pressure, a heavy and uncomfortable abdomen, more swelling in the feet/hands, hard time breathing (until the baby drops around the 8th month and then that should get better), frequent, stronger Braxton Hicks contractions and just a general "will somebody please get this baby out NOW???" feeling :)

  • well i am at 31 wks and 2 days and i have just started getting really hot, having swollen hands and feet at the end of the day and my hands throughout the day are really hot, i had to stop wearing my rings..its sucks but oh well. i have been sleeping just ok lately so i always feel tired. of course getting up a million times a night to pee doesn't help. and my boobs have started hurting a lot worse too. so thats my case...i'm sure there are many different stories you can look forward to though.

  • more peeing and there is no way to get comfortable when you want to sleep! Oh and if you don't have stretch marks. Just wait between weeks 30-40 you might just wake up with them!

  • It didn't get worse for me. I had alot of energy and my skin was gorgeous! Granted I had to wobble when I walked and I was peeing alot, but it was great! Enjoy it, you are gonna miss it after it's over. I know everybody says that but you will. Maybe not immediately, but later on you will!

  • I never got heartburn. I love pregnancy but if you focus on how "bad" things are then they will be bad. Focus on the joy! Things get a little more tense and painful, and you get a lot more pressure in areas, etc. BUT there are plenty of things you can do to not make yourself miserable. I never was.

  • There are lots of great things to look forward to. Soon you will get to use all the darling onezies and blankets that you have purchased, you will get to fill the baby's room with love, laughter, books and stuffed animals. Don't forget that you will need a few more fashionable maternity clothes, the babys weight doubles in the seventh month and new maternity clothes will get you through the last few months and after the baby is born too. Who isn't cheered up by a few new clothes?

  • I"m 32 wks. and nothing that bad has happened to me. I realize there are solutions to a lot of common 'ailments' that occur in the third trimester. If you start getting back aches, stretch and use a heating pad. If you have trouble sleeping, take a bath or buy a special pillow. There are things you can do to make your time easier. People kept telling me how 'miserable' I'd be and so far, I'm perfectly fine. I exercise, lift light weights and still work full-time.
