  • Could be. 38 weeks sucks. I was miserable.

  • Yes, call the doctor. I believe if you were in labor, you would not be typing right now.

    :) Just remember you are almost there. OMG, very shortly you will have a beautiful bouncing, energetic baby. Be sure to get all the rest you can now.

    Good luck!!!

  • i know what u mean, sometimes total crap is an understatement, lol. hang in there. but i remember feeling like that and like expecting to have contractions that night but i was still weeks away. its so hard in the end just wait for the contractions. good luck i'm 30 weeks and dying!

  • Give yourself a "sick day" in bed with good snacks. You need the rest and calories.

    Also, go get a massage if you have the cash to spare. You deserve it.

  • I was the same way at 38 weeks but didnt have her until the day before my due date. Hang in there.
