  • It sounds like a perfectly normal 3rd trimester to me.

    You just never know. Lots of people have swelling and backaches throughout their entire pregnancies. The ribs hurting says to me that the baby hasn't dropped and gotten into position yet and that has to happen before you go into labor.

  • I personally think that it just means you are in the 3rd trimester, and all those things happened to me almost the whole 3rd trimester with my son.

  • Unfortunately just means that you're getting closer and that it's when the fun times really start rolling as far as being uncomfortable. You want that baby to bake a while longer.
