OK, so I feel like I've done nothing but piss and moan all day on this board about one thing or another... but it's just one of those days! I'm just finishing up my shift (thank God!) and I'm in so much pain! I sit at my job (again, thank God!) but after a few hours my back really starts killing me because these chairs aren't exactly the best... but when I get up to walk around I'm also in pain because I've been sitting for so many hours. I'm in pain walking around for more than ten minutes now, too! I went to the mall yesterday and after just a few minutes I started having tons of pressure down there, like he was going to fall out! I know it's because this is my fourth baby and my muscles down there just aren't what they used to be (this happened with my last baby, but not until around 36 weeks, and it's because of this extreme pain that she agreed to induce me at 39 weeks)... but still. So now I basically can't sit, walk, or stand without hurting. And that's not including laying down, or trying to roll from one side to another in the bed... which is excrutiating! I didn't have these problems with my first two babies, but with DD and this one, it's like it keeps getting worse... like my body wasn't made to have more than two children and because I keep getting pregnant I'm being punished! Is anyone else going through this?!

I wake up everyday feeling like I've run a marathon. My body aches all day long. Literally from the time I wake up until I lay down and even then sleeping is a nightmare. I wake up in the middle of the night from laying on one side too long and hurting. My body gets really stiff and moving over is very difficult.
All this has made everyday life hard to get through. Housework, work, spending time with the kids, everything just seems impossible!!
Just recently have I started to deal with back pain and tailbone pain. It hurts like you said - to sit, stand, walk, whatever. I lay in bed with aches in my hips and wake up with Charlie Horses in my feet and calves.
And this morning....I woke up with a KILLER sore throat
Yea, with my sciatic nerve pain, this is me most days. You can't win laying down, standing, sitting, reclining, walking.... it plain sucks. I can't get house stuff done bc I have no energy and bending over takes the biggest miracle on the planet. I also have the feelings that sometimes she is just going to fall out, and she is already dropped so the pressure she puts on my bladder sometimes is the absolute worst!!!!!!! The end seems so close yet so far. Have to tried ice, heating pad, a good massage, tylenol?
Add me to your list. I woke up at 3am with a terrible headache and NEVER went back to sleep. Ugh. It's 9:30 & I haven't even turned on my laptop for work......
