  • I am 37 now and I feel like pure crap!!! My back started hurting today and hasn't stopped. I am going to sleep on the couch tonight because my bed is just making it worse and I have been having stomach pains today too. It's not contractions though. And the baby stays under my ribs so there is no such things as being comfortable anymore! Ah oh well he is going to be taken by c section on the 13 th so I don't have long... thank God!!! Come on baby!!!!!

  • With my 1st, I felt like a whale. With my 2nd I was so measurable all I wanted to do was sleep. With my 3rd I had so much pressure I wanted her out. With my last one I did not make it that far.

  • I felt HORRIBLE. My son was transverse, and never dropped. He also weight about 8 lbs at 36 weeks, lol. He was pressing up into my ribcage the entire third trimester. It was so painful that I would cry at times, lol. My belly got HUGE...everyone assumed I was pregnant with twins!! :) I was so swollen that I felt like a huge balloon stuffed to the max with pudding, lol! I was also so shoved full of baby that I could hardly eat anything. Hang in there, Mama, you're in the home stretch! :)

  • I hardly bothered to get off the toilet! No sooner would I get my pants up and get to the door, she was kicking, and punching my bladder and I'd have to go again! Other than that, I felt pretty good!

  • Ready to pop. Bloated and tired from waking up 3 times at night to pee.

  • Tired, lol.

    I'm 37 1/2 weeks now (11 days until my c-section).  I'm exhausted and my feet keep swelling up but I feel pretty good otherwise.  My last pregnancy (4 years ago) I was in excrutiating pain by this point.  My hips loosened up so much they were popping in and out of the sockets and I could barely move.

    This baby is going to be big, too.  I just had an ultrasound on Monday and they estimated 7lbs.  If they gain a 1lb a week on average the last months...this kid is going to be over 8 1/2-9lbs.  Ugh, hopefully the ultrasound was off, lol.  My son was 9lbs 3oz.  My girls were all much smaller...hoping this is a boy.

  • I will be 36 weeks next Thursday and I am soooo ready to pop this kiddo out. I want her to stay in for another couple weeks but I'm hoping to not go past my due date. I pee every 5 minutes, the pelvic pressure is horrible especially when I stand up, and I am really tired all the time. I am looking forward to seeing my sweet lil girl! Hopefully soon!!
