I have some nights where my back is hurting so bad i toss and turn until i finally fall asleep - once i fall asleep i'm usually ok and the back ache is not every night, so thank God for that... another thing i noticed is in the morning my hands and feet hurt. it's not really unbearable, it goes away - and i can deal with it, the back aches at night when they do come are the worst but i'm doing good for the most part, knock on wood!!!!!!!!!!!

-sciatic leg pain and I sit all day at work and have a long commute.
-Pee even when I really don't have much to pee especially at night.
-Odor which I need to ask the doc about next visit or if it gets worse.
-IT is getting cold up here now and putting socks and shoes on for work is fun now.
-Feeling like I have a furnace on me especially at work where they like it toasty in here. Do not need to invest in any more winter pregnancy clothese that is for sure. Constant fan on me.
-Out growing some of my pregnancy clothes.
-constant constipation battle and now related stink fest issues.
-The pain in my hands and wrists when sleeping and after I get up ( I periodaically use my braces that I got from a previous pregnancy for pregnancy induced carpal tunnel)
-Tired and Crabby at night
-Worrried something could go wrong or the baby will get tangled up. As a gluten for punishment I read a couple stillborn stories yesterday, I highly recommend not doing so.

I'm already over needing to pee every time I stand up!
And if I don't go right to the bathroom (which happens because I have a toddler!) it's like Zoe senses it and starts karate chopping my bladder.
Washing dishes. My belly is so big I can't reach the water stream unless I stoop down. If I stoop down my back KILLS me instantly and for quite awhile. I'd boycott dishes, but it's not like my husband is home enough to do them.
Groin pain has started for me. Groin pain that seems to get worse whenever I try to adjust myself at night in bed. And when I find a position that relieves that pain some, my tail bone starts killing me. So I take the groin pain. At least it's probably helping in a productive manner.
Constipation! Never had this issue with my son, so I feel like it's getting revenge.
Headaches. Pregnancy headaches have returned. With a vengeance. At least they're not quite to the migraine category yet.

Pubic bone pain! It hurts every time I stand up. It's also hard to sleep. My belly is so heavy that I can't breathe if I'm on my back and it's uncomfortable to lay on my side. I've also had a headache for 2 days and it's getting old!

I feel pretty good aside from not being able to sleep. I wake up to pee several times, and then wake up at about 4am and can't get back to sleep. I should just get up and do something, but being lazy is easier (and warmer!!).

My maternity clothes aren't really fitting right anymore either. My jeans keep slipping or rolling down my belly (I wish I had secret fit pants, they seem to stay up better) and my shirts don't feel long enough so I tug them down, but then I pull the neckline down too low and my bra peeks out. I can't win!

Maternity pants in large are too big, mediums are too small
Back aches, CONSTANTLY
Think this baby has set off my gallbladder because of the constant pain there.
Ickiness if I don't eat, heartburn if I do.
Constantly having to pee (3 times in a half hour period last night)
Can't walk at a quicker clip than a 94 year old man with a walker cause of the out of breath factor.
BIZZARELY weird dreams that make Hannibal Lechter seem normal
Swelling in my feet and hands
Dizziness and auras (not the new age color aura but it looks like purple spots after a bright flash aura)
Outgrowing most my medium shirts and not having enough larges for the next seven weeks.
Not being able to bend over and not being able to stand back up if I fall.
Headaches.....

6 weeks, 5 days. MAX. I can do this. I can I can I can.... I hope.

Erin-
I have gall bladder pain too! I have never really heard anyone else say that! I especially have it in the AM when I wake up b/c I have been laying on my side all night. I had it even worse with DS1 than I do with this baby, but I still have it.

Ive actually hear a lot of people talk about having gall bladder issues lately. In my imidiate family (of origin) I am the only woman left with a gall bladder. My mom, and both of my sisters, have had issues and had them removed (knock on wood). My mom had hers out at 40...and I would have to say she was in great shape, and has always been super healthy. My middle sister's was pregnancy related, and she had surgery after her 1st was born. My youngest sister just had hers out, and less than a week later found out that she was pregnant (she is just pregnant, so I am not sure the gall bladder had to do with the pregnancy). Anyway, I guess gall bladder issues arent all that uncommon during pregnancy. I hope that both of yours are mild, and disappear when your babies come Smile

My hips hurt so bad at night so I have to roll to the other side each hour or so, which means I am up each hour or so. The dull ache I get just from going from sitting to standing, and I don't walk anymore I waddle everywhere.

my best friend had to have her gall bladder removed about a month after the birth of her first born.

I think my only real complaint right now is that my hips hurt while I'm sleeping. Even with a pillow between my legs I still wake up either hurting or laying on my back (which then makes me worry about baby blood flow so I lay there until I feel some movement...) Boo.

My mom had to have hers removed within a month or so of my sister being born too.

It is 3:30am here, and I am up. Why? Because I forgot totake my heartburn meds before bed. I had decided not to take the tylonal pm so I could see how I slept without
Them for a night, and since I usually take my renidadine at the same time, I forgot to take it Sad so, here I sit, waiting for the renidadine and 2 tums I just took with milk to kick in. Praying that I am able to get back to sleep since I need to get up in less than 3 hrs to get the kids up and dressed and DS1 to school on time. Yeah, with in the next 5 weeks or so I will have a newborn getti NH me up to change and nurse, but at least then Im up for a little bit, can pop a boob in his mouth, and lay witg him as he nurses. And, when I do sleep, it will be more comfortable, and deeper. I really do hate complaining, but right now I am just so frustrated. I hate having to take meds to get any sort of sleep, and still being tired all day and barely functional if I dont take them at all Sad

Ugg. Hoping he either comes soon, or that he isnt fully engaged and can shift a bit so you are more comfy.
