  • Lots of pillows, if you aren't already using them. Drink plenty of water. It may help calm the contractions. You can take some Benadryl if it gets really bad. Hang in there, mama, you're in the home stretch!!

  • I got so big with my last 1. My whole body hurt all over. N places I didn't even no I had. My man massaged me daily and I would sleep kinda on my side with pillows n btween my knees & under my belly. I sleep like that all the time but what got me 2 doin it was when I was preg with my 1st & he's 19. It really helped me. Congrats on the baby & good luck with the sleep.
