  • It is totally normal! I was that way from 7 months up until the day I had my son. Just try to relax... I took baths and went for walks, it helped a lot. When I wasn't relaxing or sleeping I was getting the nursery organized... and re organized. lol.

  • Very normal. It's called "nesting"

  • Yep! Normal! I had trouble getting comfortable in those last couple of weeks so bed was the only place I hung out, but I didn't sleep much. Sitting hurt, standing hurt, everything just hurt.

  • Normal!

  • Yes. Your baby is laying on just about every nerve it can. Ontop of that you're probably a little anxious for deliver. Causing you to be restless.
