  • I have been there and you are saving energy and what not before you have that baby. I did have back swollen feet and ankles and what not. If it bothers you try to ask the love of your life to rub your lower back and maybe your feet because when he does it will feel like heaven. the pain in your back can be normal from what I have experienced and I had back labor which is worse from what I have heard. I hope it goes well for you.
