I'm only 37 weeks and have to walk hunched over because if I stand straight up the pain is unbearable. It sucks. I feel like end of pregnancy discomfort has been worse with each kid. I seriously have to lay in bed with 15 pillows for three hours for every one hour I'm up and moving. I totally feel your pain.
Have you been to the chiro at all? It gives me at least temporary relief from the pressure.it doesn't last but if at least gives me a break.
not easy to do at this point but would a hand and knees position feel better for you? I think I feel lucky that I never got to that point, the only pain I had was from little feet kicking my gallbladder.
Late u/s are notoriously bad for checking weight of baby unless baby is really small, they were 2oz off of my 36 weeker but I know for a lot of my friends they were pounds off.
Hope baby comes soon for you.

I had ultrasounds at 34 weeks with my 3rd and 4th dd's because I was measuring 5 weeks behind! They turned out to be measuring "right on" and their fluid was fine. They were just REALLY far down in my pelvis. Funny thing is that they were both 7 and half pounds at 39 weeks. My next two babies were MUCH smaller and measured more "normal" during the pregnancy (only 2-3 weeks behind). I think with the ultrasound there is definitely a big range of what is normal. Another thing they check for is that all parts are growing "equally." So, for example, if the baby was measuring well in all areas, but the stomach was significantly smaller that could signal a potential problem - things like that. Fluid is also something that can go down as the pregnancy progresses, so they definitely want to be sure there is still an adequate amount. I know for myself I absolutely wanted to be sure the fluid levels were good. In your case, it might almost be nice if they were "just low enough" to induce you!
i had a u/s with DD the day before i was induced to check on baby -i'm not sure if it was routine or not- but i had some major swelling in the legs (bld pressure was fine) and i ended up with low fluid, so at 38wks, they took her. She was also measuring 2wks ahead and was suppose to be about 8-8.5lbs...she was 9lbs10oz..... my guess is they probably just want to be sure baby is fine in there.....

To me 'low fluid' is such a grey area. Perhaps that's normal fluid for you or your baby? Sometimes I think they're just looking for an excuse to induce you so you can fit into their time schedule. No one likes a woman going into labour at bed time or when you're heading out for dinner with your wife.
