You’re almost there!!! I feel like I’ve been complaining since week 6! I have not enjoyed pregnancy one bit and I’m only 28 weeks! Not looking forward to what else is in store.

I’m sorry!! 🙁 You’re so close at least!

I can commiserate–I just ate egg salad for lunch and now I’ve been having wicked egg/mustard-flavored pregnancy burps. Oh, how I regret giving into that craving when I made lunch this morning.

I can’t wait to be done with (aka, go back to normal human amounts of) burping and acid reflux.

Sorry, I don’t have anything productive to add and can’t relate because I’m only TTC now, but imagine that this ^^ can’t feel great…  I hope you’re both feeling good enough to break dance soon!! 🙂

@newname_99:  You’re almost there!  I’m 32 weeks and am totally over it. I feel worse and worse by the day.  I’m exhausted, nausea has returned, my back hurts, I can barely breathe half the time and I’m sick of having to work so damn hard to get my shoes off and to roll out of bed to go to the bathroom!

I haven’t really enjoyed pregnancy much either. I was feeling pretty good in the second trimester, but all in all being pregnant is a pain!

@newname_99:  You are so close! So sorry you feel horrible. I am at the beginning and you are at the end and we both feel the same, go figure! Hope you can find some relief soon.

Are you having a boy or a girl?

Hang in there gals.  I was miserable as well and to make it even worse, I went to 41w1d.  

I can say though that going that far past due and letting my body go into labor on its own was the best thing for my labor.  Baby was ready, body was ready, I was WAY past ready, and it made things go much more quickly and smoothly.

Hang in there, it will be worth it really really soon 🙂

Hang in there, you are so close to being done. Try to get some rest and pamper yourself (maybe a prenatal massage or pedicure).

Personally, I’m 37 weeks pregnant and feeling great, but that is ONLY because the baby remains breech. I’m doing everything in my power (acupuncture, moxibustion, breech tilts and inversions, Webster adjustments) to get the baby to move with no sucess. I would love to be uncomfortable right now because that would mean the head is down and engaged. I’m just pointing out the good side of feeling achy-the baby and your body is doing what it should (but it still sucks!).

@newname_99:  I’m sorry you feel this way! I am sure my time is coming. Honestly, I had such a shitty start to my 2nd trimester that I was praying for it to be over very soon. Now that I feel better, I can’t say I feel the same. At night when my hips and butt hurt I do wish it will be over soon, but overall I am generally ok and have had it easy.

I hope that things get better for you. You’re almost there!!!

So with you. I’m full term tomorrow, thank God. My Dr restricted my exercise due to placental bleeding (the baby is fine but exercise was my sanity saver) and I am literally climbing the walls. I currently have the attention span and brain capacity of a two year old, and due to my recent hospital stay I now know what a horrible hospital patient I am and am soooo dreading going back there even though it is a really great hospital. Oh yeah, and I got a new job two weeks ago within the same company which means that I will be stressed during mat leave and upon my return to work because although the opportunity is fantastic, the timing couldn’t be worse. Rant over. Wishing you some relief!!

I would give anything to be in your spot right now…

I know not every pregnancy is a cake walk or flowers and roses all the time, but when you’re feeling down go check out the 6 months+/1 year+ TTC threads… It will make you appreciate it all over again.

Hope you feel better soon!

@newname_99:  I am 28 weeks along and I’ve recently discovered what it feels like to constantly feel like my pelvic bone is bruised 🙁 that and the peeing 435984375 times a day is starting to get to me. Being pregnant is a tough gig, especially 3rd trimester.
