38 Weeks. Extreme pelvic pain. Sore abdomen and ribs. Normal?

Needless to say, I'm DONE being pregnant. I want my sweet baby and squint bottle, and to begin moving on with my life.

However, at 38 weeks I'm more than 50% effaced and as if last Thursday I'm dilated to 4cm through my entire cervix. Baby has been down and ready for weeks. All I'm lacking is regular contractions (and knowing what a contraction feels like...enough to know its happening regularity) and leaking water. I've tried walking, and squating, and pineapples, and raspberries and praying to Gods I don't believe in bc I know mine is too busy for my crap. :) BUT this morning I woke up feeling as if I had yet again been hit by a bus, except that my entire abdomen and ribs are just SORE. As if I worked out, or got in a car wreck. Is this normal?

Really, really push drinking water. Your muscles may be telling you that they are dehydrated

As the baby gets bigger your ribs cage is going to be punshed out. Take some Tylenol for the pain.

Hang in there. You're almost done 'cooking' the little one. :)

As of about 12 hours ago I lost the ability to even walk without crying. My public bone hurts do much I can't see straight. I can feel her hiccups...behind that bone. The pain is horrible. It's just...unreal. I spent 5 hours last night timing cramps that were all ten minutes apart but became too distracted by THIS pain. I feel so frustrated and defeated with this pregnancy today! I'm ready to be done.
