3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

hey all,
boy am i ready to have this baby
i am having more and more problems with my back and breathing. I guess there is really nothing you can do about that. I am still working f/t. Today I have a doctors appointment, guess I'll have to complain to the doc. lol
Anyway, hope all of you are doing good.

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

In one word... UGH. That is how I feel. 38 weeks and counting the days down. I am crossing my fingers for the full moon tonight (laugh/snort ). Last Wed I developed a mild itchy rash on my abdomen due to the stretching. Baby lotion has helped some along with an antihistamine as directed by my doctor. Lucky for me he dropped two weeks ago so I can at least breathe again, but the back discomfort is getting worse, especially at night when it is getting harder and harder to sleep comfortably. Still it will all be worth it.

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

My only complaint is my back too! But I am seeing a chiropractor to help out with that! I have a little over 10 weeks to go, but I don't feel like I'm going to last. Is that normal?

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

I'm 35 weeks tomorrow and I'm miserable. I'm ready for this to be over so I can hold my sweet little baby boy. I'm having BH ALOT and my pelvic bone is hurting like something awful. It will all be worth it in a few weeks though. I hope everyone is doing okay.

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

I am currently 37.5 weeks. I am dialated to one and when I was at my docs appt. last time she stripped my membranes. I also lost my mucous plug on Friday. I am currentlyworking full time and all the aches and pains are getting so bad. Its hard to walk just cuz I have so much pain and pressure downthere. Sometimes I look so ridiculous trying to walk. My back is extremely sore. I am hoping it happens soon. I am getting cranky and losing my paitence.

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

I'M SOOOO READY!! I was having pains all weekend, but nothing constant so I didn't want to go into the hospital. I had pushing pressure all day Saturday, Like I'd sit on the toilet and push, feeling like I had to go #2, but didn't. So when I went to the Dr this morning he asked me "Is he still head down" I said I HOPE! He checked me and said WOW HES LOW!! That's what all the pressure was. So he checked me and I am dilated 3cm! He said walk, SEX, and sit on the toilet and push more, that will move him down. He striped my membranes today too, so I am thinking, since this is my 4th that I am going on like Wednesday. If there's nothing by Monday he will bring me into L&D and break my water. I'm so excited!! I am due 10/31 but he moved me up to today, 10/17 cause of high bp issues but my bp has been low and I am not swollen, so I have till next Monday(if I make it)..WOO HOO

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

im 36 weeks, and very ready!!!!! its been 3 months on bed rest, my poor body is so sore. walking is tough. it will all be worth it. the dr said his head has been low for 1.5 months now, and im 100% effaced. but no dialation yet. why do they strip your membranes? what does that mean? also i have been having pressure like hes going to fall out!!!! i cant wait!!!!!

Re: 3rd Trimester mommies-how ya feelin?

I'm 35 weeks and I feel huge, my back hurts all of the time, I can't breathe most of the time, and sleep, what sleep? I go to bed, and I do sleep, but I wake up every 2 hours. Guess my body is preparing for the many night feedings ahead.
