soo uncomfortable right now

ok so i was wondering is anyone else feeling really uncomfortable???

i just got home from shopping, i know i haven't drank enough water today... but i am feeling super uncomfortable. i am resting and chugging water... but even normal movements from baby are becoming painful. i feel like i am going to burst.
I am back to peeing every ten min that or leaking... and i can barley eat since i get full so quick now.
I think we have run out of room and baby feels soo low, almost as if baby is dropped down below the pubic bone.
I am planning on talking to Dr. tomorrow since i have an appointment. I am sure i will hear the same old your getting close and will be more uncomfortable as your due date approaches. speech... welcome to the final 2 months.

Okay so i have my appointments today... I was annoyed before/ on the drive and i had a slightly elevated bp reading it was like 123/82 i think....
Dr. wasn't concerned. baby Hb was in the 150's and i am so uncomfortable talked about several things... i was right baby is literally right there on my pubic bone, I am glad baby is there no real worries of baby not being head down come delivery time. told me the pressure and stress incontinence is normal... keep doing my keagles? ugh i can't spell.

I had a good meeting with our doula .. she brought up protein intake and pre e correlation, that most moms who take in at least 80g a day risk is lower?

I haven't heard this before.. but i never really thought to worry too much about it. i guess i thought there wasn't much you could do to prevent it.

I'm sorry! I'm really uncomfy too these days. Walking hurts. Even for 5 steps, walking hurts. I'm feeling pretty grumpy about it too.
I'm REALLY tired of the same four shirts and 3 pairs of pants. lol Heck, I'm just plain tired. I can't sleep at the right time, and can't stay awake for the rest of the time!

I'm pretty sure he hasn't dropped. And it's killing my ribs and lungs. I just want a deep breath. And to freaking sleep!

I agree. I'm super uncomfortable, too.
My hands and feet looks like sausages from the swelling, and my face is swelling too..... So that's pretty...... Not.
I have grown out of most of my clothes, too and i just feel so dang big.
I had a slow and fairly low weight gain until 2 weeks ago when the fluid started. And now i just feel so huge i cant hardly do anything. I have very few options to wear to work, and shoes to match is a joke.
I'm just over it. And even though my BP isn't coming down, i stay 140/90 or higher now, unless my labs start to look worse, baby isn't going anywhere.

Shoes to match? Hahahaha.... I have been wearing semi-matching-ish colored sneakers for months. No more office shoes right now for me...
My blood pressure is right around there too, and my hubby is getting pushy about making sure I'm not overdoing it. So he tells me i have to lay down for a bit and rest when it's too high. This is either really sweet, or REALLY p!sses me off, depending on what second of the day he happens to say it. lol

I'm right there with ya ladies... My poor Dh never knows if his attempts to be helpful will be appreciated or not (I usually at least try to fake appreciative). He's discovered that humor tends to help so this weekend he knew I wanted to get stuff organized in our room so after sleeping in (I was up anyways so I took our older two downstairs to have breakfast and get some stuff done) he came down and handed me one of his socks... then giggled when I looked confused until he told me I was "a free elf", at which point I giggled and ran off. When I was done with what I wanted to get done I threw the sock back at him.

I would love for my legs/hips and lower back to relax (tight muscles) as they've hurt since october!! Starting to get more ankle swelling but not as bad as my first (my leg went from my thigh straight down to my foot! and never got better until baby was born). At least they go down as I sleep for the most part.

that said only 26 days til I'm due!

I'm not uncomfortable most of the time but this baby really does feel like a bag of bones. I don't know if it's the positioning that is making me feel her this way but she feels so different to my son. He was all rounded bumps but she is really really poky. These poky bits keep jutting out and I am having a hard time working out what they could be!

Pretty dang uncomfortable here! Starting to have BP issues, accompanied by the constant headaches. She's a very pushy baby, she likes to tap dance on my cervix so that is always comfortable. The carpel Tunnel is pretty bad I wear braces at night now. I take iron twice a day so I am also battling constipation, Water and Miralax. 5ish more weeks right?!
