Extra Weight causing pain?

I'm now 39 weeks pregnant, and this is my second pregnancy. I'm currently at 156 lbs (as of monday) which means I've gained 64 lbs. A lot of it is water weight, but it hurts like hell to move. Standing, walking, rolling over in bed. My doctor told me it wasn't my pubis or anything. I even am wearing a belly brace to support the baby bump. Short of birth is there anything else i can do to help?

  • gentle stretching, warm bath if you can get in and out of a tub and maybe a massage

    but no just take it easy, 64 lbs is a lot to gain you were so tiny before

  • I feel the same way, massage and going to the chiropractor helps!
