What has been the biggest change in the 3rd trimester for you vs the 2nd?
The biggest change I've noticed (other than belly size, haha) is my energy level has plummeted the past month or so. I struggle to find the energy to keep up with my almost 2-year-old these days & we're definitely doing a lot more hanging around the house.
My comfort level. I have a much harder time getting comfortable. I am also hot, but that is probably due to the weather change.
breathing and bending over....seriously, putting on my shoes and then having to tie them is a chore now...lol...slip ons have become my BFF's. There are times i drop things i just leave it there til my hubby can pick it up cuz it's just too much work to bend over.... Breathing - when it's really humid out, i can feel the difference and when i walk up my stairs, i'm so out of breath.. i hate it!!!
The hip/pelvis pain! UGH!!! I mean there are days I literally can not walk. It's miserable!
Swollen sausage feet I have went to go shoe shopping twice and dont even want to look at shoes because everything looks ridiculous
My sex drive went up^^^^^^
I am having some swelling and my left hand and leg keeps going numb.
I am not eating as much, but I am peeing more.
Ha! I'm uncomfortable all the time... sleeping, sitting, bending
A lot. So uncomfortable due to the baby having dropped, the giant belly, and the fact that it's 600 degrees outside everyday. I literally sleep with a fan pointed directly at me. I'm exhausted even though I get sleep every night it seems like it's never enough and it's just no quality sleep. All of the fun new pains from the baby dropping and my back hating me. Plus, I swear sometimes my stomach just won't stretch like it's supposed to because I'm left with these horrible stretching pains that will only go away when I physically hold my tummy up.
Bleh. I just want to go to sleep and wake up in 8 weeks to have this baby! lol
My energy level has gone down...I can't stand longer than 2 minutes at times. HATE climbing my stairs--UGH! I can never get comfortable always have this pain in my upper abdominal under my rib cage. The bathroom trips have tripled in this trimester. If I sit down in the floor to help my kids with their shoes or clothes I can barely get up.
On a better note, my migraines are non-existant & my face has cleared up in this trimester.
Not to much has changed. I kind of entered the 3rd trimester during the second. I feel I got ripped off - no happy go lucky 2nd for me, just a very long extended 3rd.
But I bet you deliver before us. I went 41 weeks with my last 2. :bigarmhug:
Even less energy than I had before! I have the urge to clean constantly now, but no energy to follow through with it, LOL.
I have been short of breath when I'm trying to sleep, and I am getting up to pee more now. And the heartburn is getting worse, I can't eat a full meal after noon anymore. I'm really tired too, but that might just be because I am having so much trouble sleeping.
Really, I just found that as soon as the 3rd tri started, I was DONE. I am so, SO ready to not be pregnant anymore.:confused:
OMG, that is so frustrating. And I am doing that now too!! So I keep seeing things that need to be done, but instead of doing it, I just get really cranky!
This is me!
I am so uncomfy!
If I get up for more than a few minutes I am having problems. The bigger the baby gets, the less I can be on my feet without feeling like I'm going to have major problems. The kicks are really hurting now too. They used to just make me smile, now they make me jump in pain.
