  • unfortunately that sounds about right.. and the impatience of waiting only makes things worse. the heavier the baby gets, the more everything is going to hurt. i had my baby 3 weeks ago. stretching my legs generally helped, temperarily. tylenol.........

  • Yeah, leg squats helps, eat fibrous foods so you don't get constipated, drink plenty of water so you don't cramp up. Just massage your belly and baby, stay away from the junk food, keep busy so you are not just sitting around. First one? Gong up and down stairs helps, just be careful you have someone with you. Hot showers helps too, I had all mine at home, defintiely hot showers and belly rubs. it will not stay in there forever!

  • Good luck!! It is normal. That last month is a LONG one!! I am 39 1/2 weeks and hoping it's not much longer. ;-) Rest helps - though hard to come by. Take it easy and hang in there!!!
