  • at 36wks your baby should be sitting pretty low, if it hasn't dropped yet it may be getting ready to. My daughter never dropped but I could feel her trying to, guess I didn't have room even with my big hips.

  • There is so much pressure inside of you right now. I remember how most physical positions hurt! I had a lot of pain in my feet. I had a lot of pressure on my sciatic nerve too. You're almost there! Good luck!

  • I'm only 21 weeks and on certain days, my hips and sciatic nerve KILL me! Sometimes it's a shooting pain that goes down my leg that makes me want to just collapse on the floor! When I shop or walk a lot, my hips really start to ache. You're almost done though! Good luck! I have a ways to go yet.
