  • There are a few things you could try to help be more comfortable so you can wait more patiently. Baby is still inside because it's not time to be out just yet. ;-)

    "Running out of room"?  Do you have a rare medical issue?   Your uterus should stretch and grow if you're an average pregnant woman.

  • Sorry, but this is really normal. I have been suffering through it since my 6th month at least! Just try to lay on your side and stay as comfortable as you can until go time!
