Ughhh so uncomfortable!!!

Yeah, another pregnant woman whining about being uncomfortable haha. I'm only 29 weeks along and I swear to god if my stomach gets any bigger I'm going to topple forward!

Anyone else close to me in gestation and feeling the same way? What's your pregnancy woe's? Having problems sleeping because you can't get comfortable? Sciatic nerve driving you crazy? Out of breath? Grunting getting up from a sitting position? Baby going nuts during the night kickboxing or doing who knows what? I can't imagine 9 more weeks of this!!! =) I know you need to enjoy it while you can but there's that little voice in the back of your head that's saying 'get this over with already!'.

  • LOL-- I remember all of that. Wait until you're about ready to pop, feel like you're carrying a bowling ball between your legs, and your veejay actually hurts from all the pressure. I felt like someone had kicked me between the legs, and the soreness wouldn't go away.

    Take some relaxing baths and soothe those muscles. Can't help you with the sleep issue, except I did use a boppy for a short while, with pillows laid out, so that I could at least lay on my tummy for a little bit at a time. That helped to get the pressure off my back. Also, if you can afford it, or better yet, if you can get the doc to write you a prescription, get a pregnancy massage on one of those tables with a hole. HEAVEN!! I told the therapist I'd pay just to be able to lay on that table!!

  • Lets see I have just a little over a month left and I suffer from everything you have mentioned as well as laziness and constant worry about my health when the baby is born (I have cervical dysplasia). Yeah I am miserable and can't wait for this baby to be born but am willing to wait after seeing my niece born today with breathing problems and a possible infection that may or may not kill her (she was born at 36 weeks) So when you see something like that it makes the pain and annoying discomfort seem so little compared to all that. I hope you get to feeling good soon.
