My hips bother me when I'm sleeping and first thing in the a.m. as well. Are you positioning yourself well when you go to bed? Some strategically placed pillows can help take some of the tugging an pulling off of your joints.
And seriously, a massage will do you good regardless. I get one weekly.
if i could afford massage it would definatly be in the works. heck ... i did just get my tax refund
and thats good to hear about the dropage too.... i've been feeling off all night and still don't feel like i'm in labor but strange IYKWIM... hoping labor isnt too far off.
i did throw up my dinner though- i had subway pizza, with extra oregano LOL... but it wasnt the greatest going down and worse coming up. that was 2 hrs ago though, i think i might need a little something else now. haven't been nauseus since either. guessing i ate too much and the pizza just didnt sit right anyway
It all sounds promising.
And if you have insurance, check with them. Massage may be covered. Both mine and my husbands insurance covers massage with a doctor's referral, which is usually pretty easy to get. I mean, it's not like you can pop some muscle relaxants or anything right now, right? And really it should be considered preventative care or health promotion, which HCPs know is MUCH more cost effective in the long run.
It's probably a moot point anyways. You'll probably have your baby by tomorrow evening!
i f-ing better!
i put on FB that i feel like i'm falling apart and DH's grandma replies with "its going to be an 8lb 8oz baby boy born on febuary 14th, you can make it 4 days"
and i'm going to kill the old bird. she drives me batty. she's been saying this for months. and she's pissing me off. she can post the same comment 45 times on FB but she can't figure out how to make a formal guess in my betting pool.
anyway- she keeps saying it will be such a big boy. DD was that bit. WTF is she measuring with? i have one baby so far, another the SAME SIZE doesnt sound BIG to me. Second, she keeps saying the 14th because its DH's birthday.... but seriously, is she an f-ing crystal ball? i hate that i dont want to have this baby the 14th just because i want to piss her off! and i really hope its a girl and she can stuff it!
People with their opinions need to shut it. I agree. Talk to me in 3 weeks once I am no longer carrying a flailing infant inside my torso and maybe, maybe I will have more patience for you. But until then, unless you are here to tell me I look pretty today or offering me a thin mint, STFU. Carrying a baby full term is really emotional, who knew!
Hope you have a relaxing day.
Grandma's comments would annoy me too. Now is not the time grandm! IKWYM about not wanting to have LO on that exacty day just to prove her wrong. I'm totally that way.

I hope things are moving along today! I don't like grandma's comments either, that would sooo annoy me. The dropping sounds really promising to me. Maybe DH can give you a massage tonight if you're still at home to help you relax!
Poor DH, just got fired from his 3rd job, now he's grouchy! i'm not worried, especially money wise, in fact, i think this is a good thing, bettween job 1, warehouse and delivery for plumbing supply that he got 3 weeks ago, job 2, volunteer firefighter, job 3, bouncer at a bar- was just sucking up a couple nights he actually had off and spending more time away from me and DD while messing up his schedule too!
but he likes bouncing, he looks like a bouncer, so he's sad. maybe we can give each other massages, i know i can use one and now he can too.
still no baby action despite some more shopping/walking (its cold and slippery outside so i avoid walking outside right now, pulling a muscle not falling sounds as unpleasant as falling and breaking my tailbone and going into labor) so i choose the "indoor" version, wish we had a mall! i could probably go walk laps around the hospital, thats the next biggest building around here!
anyway, so DH is home tonight, DD took an early-ish nap, and maybe he will want to take out some "frustration"... hopefully enough to break my water ... hint hint....
