What did you do to make yourself more comfortable at the end of your pregnancy? I'm 41 weeks & I feel like crap and can't get comfortable. I know it will be over soon, but UGH - I just feel so blah & I'm in pain. Suggestions??

  • I didn't go that long (induced 3 days after my due date) but I was very uncomfortable towards the end..... all I can really say is pillows were my best friend but thats about it. I was very annyed by that point. just keep thinking that it's almost over and at the end, you'll forget about all of this :) good luck! :)

  • I was always uncomfortable too. I don't think there is much you can do. Maybe a body pillow. I regret not getting one. Like PP asked, are they going to let you go much longer?

  • oh you poor thing. just use the discomfort and annoyance to help fuel the labor! lol. Remeber, its just natures way of helping you deal with the delivery! if you were contnent and comfy, you would have no desire to push the baby out! lol

  • Well the end is rough... it is to be expected.
    Can you give the specifics so I can offer ideas for that?

    **And mamas, remember that we women are responsible for our OWN health care.... we are the ones that "let" ourselves.... do whatever.
    BUT knowing that an EDD (Estimated Due Date) is merely the mid-point of the average 4-week due period means this mom is still TOTALLY normal! ;-)

    A woman is due for about a month, not just one day. Keeping that in mind can help to remind us that Nature/God isn't messing up. ;-) We are the product of millions of years of successful childbirth.
    Stay strong, patient, and informed!
