What did you do to help yourself cope in the final weeks of pregnancy when it comes to all the discomfort? I'm on my second baby, and I'm at almost 38 weeks. I never made it this far with my first (she was born at 36 weeks). And I'm definitely feeling a major difference.
I already sleep with a pillow between my legs, but I always end up on my back anyway. It's more comfortable for my hips, but I know it's not good because of circulation.
Also, the kicks are PAINFUL and have left my belly SO sore. What can help with that?
And how can you drink enough water without peeing ever 20 minutes??? If I don't drink about 2L per day, I feel crappy, but I hate being in the bathroom so much.
What did you do for these things? Suggestions on being comfortable in any other way you can think of are WELCOME!

Good Luck you're almost there!! I don't have any other suggestions. Just try to enjoy this time with your LO before the baby comes.

There is nothing to do other than sit there and take it. I know how hard it is. I got to 39 weeks today, and I am miserable. I am hotter than ever, I am more tired than ever, my back hurts, my head hurts. I can't sleep on my back because the baby has not dropped and she is really high and I have trouble breathing. If my house was ready for the baby, I would be wishing for baby to come today. Just remember that the movements are going to get less and less as the time passes, and think about the little joy inside you. I keep thinking about my baby with little sneakers. I have these horrible visions of her kicking me with shoes on. Just take it easy, drink lots and lots of water and know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It is there. Good luck.
