What did you gals do when the back pain started getting to be bad?
I must admit - I have been very lucky in life and have been relatively thin (despite my PCOS!). So I'm only 24 weeks, but my back and ribs are starting to KILL me because they aren't used to the 11 extra lbs in front.
I need advice on how to make it through the day! Can you tell I'm a wuss??? HEHE.
Hope everyone is feeling fantastic. The time is flying by!
You've on gained 11lbs? I think I was @ 24lbs at your point! My back pain was focused most by my shoulders because my boobs exploded! I remember by abour 28 weeks, I couldn't sit straight up, I had to lean a bit while sitting down because it hurt so much. Even driving I had to be lean. This is where you just ask Hubby to rub your back!
The back pain gets worse. I was on bedrest by the time it got really bad... so that helped in some ways, was a pain in others. lol

I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
Hey i would add its to bad to get a back pain..
its like the worst pain felt..
Wow, mad props to you for only coming home 5 lbs over!!! I have a feeling that I will blow up quickly in the next few weeks as my appetite is 1000000000000000% in overdrive. I eat constantly!!! I think the babies want their fat!!
Back pain is better. Now my scar tissue from my gallbladder removal two years ago is what is really bothering me. It's numb to the touch on the outside, but burning pain on the inside. Weird, eh?
I won't complain too much. I could have it much worse. Overall, I feel great! I do get worried about one of my girls though (Baby B) b\c I don't feel her as much. She has an anterior placenta, however, with an extra placental lip, so that may be why!
Do you remember when the movement got less b\c they started "running out of room"?
