Only 1 comfortable position
 
I feel like she is shoving all my insides so far up that they are going to come up my throat. Now the only comfortable position I can find is laying down.
It has been progressively getting more uncomfortable to be sitting. I was okay leaning back or reclining for the past week or two but not as of today. Especially tonight, so I'm not sure if its more indigestion or just the cramped space.

I swore that after we had m/c last pg that I wouldnt complain during pregnancy if I could just get a healthy baby in the end but I didnt think being pregnant would have some of these downfalls. So now I feel bad complaining :(

After 10 cycles TTC and a threatened m/c, I said I wouldn't complain about anything either, but I'm pretty sure I'm the queen of complaining these days :rolleyes: It doesn't mean we love our LO's any less or don't appreciate our pregnancy, it just means we're having a tough time and need some support coping. :hug: it'll all be worth it soon!

Whenever Caleb is in a position that makes me really uncomfortable, I'll do some squats (30 or so) or pelvic tilts (hands and knees, 50 or so), and that will usually get him to move into a more comfortable position. Unfortunately, the positions most comfortable for us, such as reclining, are usually the ones that get the baby in a bad position. If you have an exercise ball to sit on, I'd recommend sitting on that whenever possible. It took me a few days to get used to, but now it's pretty much all I sit on at home.

I don't see it as complaining, it's just discussing your pregnancy :) And although my friends told me they'd warn me about everything that I would experience they certainly didn't! I think we all have the same issues and while some people breeze through pregnancy, I think it's safe to say most don't and it is hard on your body so don't be so hard on yourself! It's a lot of change, physically and emotionally that is beyond your control, and like we all know now it's work baking babies!

Everyone always said to me get your sleep now... well, that would be great if I could lay or sit down comfortably without pain, or if I could sleep standing up, I'm not even working anymore and still getting no sleep! I actually think I'll get more sleep when the twins arrive! And the pelvic pain I feel is unreal, it brings tears to my eyes just to move sometimes... those are my complaints and it took us 3 years, a chemical pregnancy, a miscarriage and probably $30,000 if I added up the treatments over the years, but when people ask how I'm feeling I tell them the truth! I think we're allowed :)

The tired you feel now is NOTHING compared to the tired you'll feel one the baby(ies) are here. It's completely different. Appreciate and enjoy the lousy few hours you get now because you'll regret it if you don't.

Thanks I know I will forget everything because it will be worth it once she's here but I'm probably being hard on myself like I always am.
It doesnt seem to matter what I do, Samantha is just determined to stretch out (and if she is really as big as my OB is thinking thats spells pain) and that shoves her feet and legs into my ribs and diaphragm.
Luckily I think part of my problem last night was indigestion because after some Tums and going to sleep I can sit reclining this morning again :phew:

Plus I think being able to sleep in till 930 for the first time in weeks if not months had to help :claps:
