  • how far along are you? the third trimester is the longest and I'd say just try and wait a little longer. wait till the baby and your body is naturally ready. but yeah I should take my own advice! I was 40 weeks, 4 days past my due date and the dr. was going to schedule an induction the following week. well I spent most of the day massaging my ankles which triggers the uterus area (reflexology) and SO and I had sex that evening. by midnight I had very intense contractions. 70 seconds long, every 2-3 minutes. I had my son the next day

  • i wouldn't want him out so but everyday is painful. i have bad hips and spend my nights crying myself to sleep and my hands and feet are always swolen and they hurt so bad i can hardly walk or pick up anything. it's starting to get really depressing, i have never felt so bad in my life
