  • I started having a lot of hip pain. My left hip would pop out of place a lot and my lower back ached... Not the usual ache but really awful ache. I was also sooo tired. lol I just had him two days ago!

  • well seeing as my son was already engaged in my pelvis since 7mnths. I didnt really feel anything physically, I felt really energized n cleaned my house. the only thing was my crotch area hurt like hell for the last 2mnths sooo I was used to it...

  • I was MISERABLE. I was late and just wanted to have the damn baby already!!! If only I would have gotten more sleep beforehand...

  • #1 I was miserable - she was 7 days late. but the day before I delivered I felt AWESOME even went bowling.

    #2 I was hot and achy all over (hottest summer on record for us that year blech) the day I delivered I had a nap - and woke up knowing that was the day.

    #3 I was in non productive labour for 6 weeks. 6 weeks of regular contractions that would get to 5minutes apart and then back off to 10-15minutes. I was on the induction wait list for 7 days and just had to keep calling (evidently everyone else in the city decided to have a baby that week). middle of the summer too. that solidified my " I AM DONE HAVING BABIES" the instant she was born. lol
