How is everyone feeling?

How is everyone doing now? Backaches? Swelling? Trouble sleeping?

I feel mostly good. My hips and pelvis ache if I walk for more than 15 mins at a time, which is frustrating. And I can't sleep for the life of me. I'm so tired all the time!!

I am have some pretty terrible hip pain. I live in my belly support band. I am also pretty much an emotional wreck most days. Very ready for Feb to be here.

I have terrible terrible heartburn so I am desperately clinging to the idea that she may have some hair when she is born, my DS was bald.

Other then that the '3rd Trimester Senioritus' has begun to sit in with me. And the daunting task of remodeling our master is going to happen over the 2 week holiday break DH and I have so that's there.

Lots of hip pain at night... Seems to ease a bit during the day as a slow movement seems to unstiffen it.

My problem is NO energy and a laundry list of crap to do....

ME TOO!!!! I'm usually all ready to go and running and love to shop and do things. NOW, I'm all exhausted after 20 mins of anything. And there is so much I NEED to get done!

Do any of you ladies have stairs in your house? Because One trip up or down them and I fell like I have run a marathon. We have 2 sets. One to the master and one to the basement. 0.o Laundry day sucks.

I do. I'm tempted to just sleep on the couch and live downstairs. Why the heck are stairs so exhausting??

I have now idea. I literally toss things down the stairs (Non-breakable items!) all day so that I don't have to make multiple trips.

I just have to say I hear you But it is laundry day here everyday.... that being said and our bed room is the loft room , so I am taking trips up and down stairs all day and night.

I get up to pee at least 2 times after i fall asleep for the night.

I must travel the stairs a minimum 10-15 times a day

I am mostly so utterly exhausted by the time i hit the bed that i am asleep almost instantly. I do wake up with numb arms and hip pain, plus stiffness. Oh and the constant feeling like someone punched me in the vag.

I feel like poo if i don't have my one caffeine drink in the afternoon.

I can't complain too much.. but i find the prego brain fog hits me hard at times.

I also can't believe most of us only have 12 or so weeks left give or take.

I feel like an absolute slug these days. I'm sleeping ok until about 4:00 am- then I'm usually wide awake. So I end up getting up and starting the coffee etc. etc., by mid day I'm usually napping on the couch. Thankfully d/d still takes a nice long nap in the afternoon so I usually get about an hours rest- if not longer. I'm definitely feeling the extra weight. More recently, I believe baby has dropped as I've noticed a major increase in pressure on my butt and back. Also had some spotting the other day. I did mention it to my OB but she didn't seem real concerned (I'm not either) I just assume its my body warming up for "game day." My heartburn is also continuing to be a problem for me, but, not much more I can do about it... Pray it goes away soon I guess.
So that's where I'm at, lol. Feeling like the end is near-so close yet so far:/

I usually go to bed by 10, up to pee around 3 and am up for at least an hour... Then up for good around 7. At least once a child will crawl into the bed (over me) also... Usually 2.... Thank goodness for king beds!! But I still can't roll over easily without massive amounts of pain (and I have a hella high pain tolerance!).

I'm down to just over 7 weeks...
This week I have to clear out my side of the garage so I can park again (snow is coming), my oldest's 5th birthday and party, and my folks come home after being gone since July (so I should probably de clutter a bit so I don't have to hear about. It from my mom)
Luckily I'm done with Christmas shopping, about half wrapped but the rest is stuff I can't do with kids around. And I need to sort through the playroom toys (get rid of broken missing parts stuff, donate outgrown stuff...). Then Christmas, luckily the farthest we travel us about half an hour and do it easily. Then my other sons birthday (he's 3 so family and a few family friends and cake). Then we have to clear out the extra bedroom to move my current youngest into his big boy room (which is currently the office/craft room). Then reorganize the nursery for baby and finish the big shopping (car seat, pack n play... Stuff we got rid of after ds2 outgrew it).... And just typing that makes me tired! And my oldest goes to "school" mwf 12:30-3:30 which after driving and dropping gives me about an hour and a half at home but I teens to use that. Time for ds2 to get some mommy alone time.

Horrible hip pain at night and I notice it works up again when I walk long distance. Heartburn is ramping up...I've been popping Tums, trying to put off using Zantac until I can no longer lie down at night without feeling like the contents of my stomach are trying to make an appearance. Feeling more pressure on my bladder again. As the above gets worse, I forsee that I will be sleeping on the couch most nights. Fortunately we live in a rambler so I can avoid stairs at home. I was trying to get extra exercise by climbing a few flights between hospital floors instead of using elevators at work but I don't think I will be able to do that much longer...kind of concerns my patients when the breathless pregnant person arrives in their room, as if I'm going to give birth right at their bedside Blum 3

Well I have 10 weeks give or take. I am measuring 10 days ahead... I was the same way with Lilly and she was 10 days past due. they scheduled an induction for Friday if i had not gone on my own she was born on the Tuesday before.

My mom is all like what can they do if you just dont show up to your induction???
I mean not that we would want to put our baby in danger or anything... but no one truly knows conception time exactly.. and if your not high risk why not just monitor and wait and see.

Im like let my body do what it needs to do.

I feel like i need a wheelbarrow to carry this belly around. It's not as bad in the morning, but by late afternoon my belly feels so tired, like its gonna fall off.
I'm waking up once or twice at night to pee too, but if i wake up at 5:00 or after, then im up for good. That stinks.

We have a tri-level split. :/ I'm doing stairs all. day. long. The three bedrooms are upstairs, along with 2 bathrooms. The main level has living room, kitchen and dining (no bathroom), and the downstairs has a family room with tv (any my business takes up the back part of the room) and the laundry room. So yes, laundry day is exhausting dragging it all down and then back up again. But even if I plan to spend most of the day int he main level/kitchen/living room, I still have to run up for the bathroom and kids rooms etc. And yes, I get out of breath these days just doing stairs!

As for how I'm feeling--I really can't complain too much. Heartburn comes and goes, but hasn't been too bad yet. I don't have hip pain this time around (again...I'll say YET) But I am tired all the time. I feel like I need a nap every day after lunch and would take one, except my kindergartener comes home at lunch time and he needs/wants attention during the toddlers naptime :/
