  • I've been feeling all of those things too and I'm only 23 weeks. This is my 3rd time around though so it's probably a different story for me. You are very close though and I hope all of it means that the baby is about ready!

    ps- glad you said that thing about your legs, that has happened to me for 2 days in a row now! I go out walking with my kids and about 10 min later my right leg feels stiff and heavy like in the thigh area lol

  • Oh honey, your baby is big and your round ligaments that support your uterus are STRESSED right now. That's OK, they are buit for it. They can take it. It's OK. Right now even rubbing your belly probably brings on BH, doesn't it? And they make it hurt worse. Get up really slow, like an old lady would. Walk SLOW. Do everything that involves moving SLOW right now. It will help the pain, I promise. You are soooo close. Are you feeling a bit grumpy? Or even hot headed? I get it, I know how it feels. The 'pregnancy glow' is gone, can I have my baby now please?!?!. The last days are the hardest for you. Go ahead and cry and totally wallow in self pity if you want to. It's OK. Cause honey, THIS IS HARD! I'm sending you 'mommy' support from my computer tonight. Woman to woman, mother to mother, Joyandlove
