  • Not "selfish," because you want to do your stuff. But it wouldn't be a good idea, for baby's sake, to push it. That could be "selfish"... (not putting baby first).

    So what can you do for the pain? Are you working really hard at hydration?
    Can you get some help around the house?

  • I was put on bed rest for 2 weeks before my oldest ds was born. I had problems with edema. My legs and feet hurt so bad from the swelling that I was thankful to stay home and prop my feet up. I think that if I had continued to work, I would have had to go barefoot at work because I had to really work to get my shoes on. I remember getting up to use the bathroom and then taking about 5 minutes to straighten up. I would then go lay day and then slowly repeat the process throughout the day. It is called nesting. We want our house clean and ready for when the baby comes. Hang in there.
