  • About the 32nd week for me. Wait until you can't find any position that's comfortable to sleep in. I had to get a body pillow and prop my legs up.

  • I'm 39 weeks and I'm not uncomfortable ALL the time. Just sometimes. For example, tonight is a wakeful night. Last night was a more restful night (except for the pee breaks).

  • I had a tough 2nd trimester, but it eased up by the third, and I was fine till labor and delivery!

  • I'm 35 weeks now and i'm constantly uncomfortable with sleepless nights and pain. I guess it started about 32 weeks. It only gets worse from here lol.

  • My hips started to hurt when I was around 5 months, some days they are just awful now! The back pain started in around 6 months. I am 35 weeks now, and the pain is worse sometimes, but it's bearable. I made my boyfriend pull the mattress off the sleeper sofa the other night and I am sleeping better with the extra cushion. Now we have a regular bed, with a sleeper mattress and 2 inches of memory foam, plus the comforter all under the sheet! Some women are getting pretty big at 26 weeks so I can imagine that you are starting to feel the pains! It does get worse, I won't lie, but hopefully you will just start feeling great sporting a cute belly.

  • just wait till your bellys so big that it hurts to even lay down & when you do, your legs start cramping. & it hurts to roll to your other side at night

  • You explained it perfectly Ethansmommy5! I'm 37 weeks and it doesn't feel the greatest to lay down. My legs fall asleep or cramp up, and my stomach hurts when I move. My feet, ankles, and legs are incredibly swollen and get painful towards the end of the day. Surprisingly, I'm not to the point of extreme discomfort. I think I should be fine for a couple more weeks. (crossing fingers)

  • I was the most uncomfortable between 27 and 35 weeks. I had really bad leg pains and could hardly sleep. I am 37 weeks now and can move easier but the contractions and constant jabs to the ribs are not pleasant, oh yeah the pressure is no fun either. Pregnancy is so uncomfortable!

  • lol i'll prolly get put on bedrest. i entered this pregnancy with restless leg syndrome.. I REALLLLY miss my medication for that. i haven't slept good in months.. can't sit still.. and now its like 5 times worse. lol plus my wonderful tore tendon around my tailbone.. ugh its like tore an inch and a half...HORRIBLE.. and ribs and everything lololol lets just say i'm enjoying laying around..but it definitely feels good when i stand up for about 10 mins ever so often. i think that it helps. lay around for 20 to 30..up for 10. lol thats pretty much my day!!!
