I've reached that place where physically I am just READY for this pregnancy to be over. That place of discomfort where I'm not necessarily in pain, just exhausted and sore. Where getting up and walking to the bathroom on the other side of my work building is just tiring.
Exactly! And then some days LO is moving so much, it's almost irritating and nauseating. I don't even pee that often yet, and I'm grateful to avoid walking all the way to the bathroom (out of breath on the way), plop onto the toilet cuz I can't sit down all the way to reach the seat, pee so little for what feels like a full bladder, then pull my pants up and my shirt down, and walk all the way back to my desk. I'm ready for a nap after each potty break.

The pains I have in multiple places when I walk is really making life suck. Laying down is also starting to be very uncomfortable. My only relief which is the bath tub is starting not to work.... Then the baths stop working to relieve my discomfort the baby will need to vacate.
Pregnancy takes a physical toll on me, most definitely. Having him here would make it so much better, but, I know it's a bit of a ways away. I want a day where one daily errand such as the grocery store for a few items, doesn't have me in agony the rest of the day. Which sadly, was yesterday
Location: California, Thank you military for sending us back home
This is for sure my hardest pregnancy and with a lot more pain. But Im still not at that point where I'm done yet. I guess I just know how much worse it will get so I just enjoy the time I have now where I can still get things done(mind you they get done very slowly). I have 7 weeks left and I know for me they will fly by. I'm just cherishing these last weeks I don't have to share my little man, even with the pain.. Talk to me in 3-4 weeks and I may have a whole different perspective
Agreed with pretty much everything said here. I have bad knees anyways and this has made it worse. Stairs are the enemy. Sometimes walking is the enemy. There's been times when I had to lean on a wall and completely stop walking because any movement would make my knees feel like they were about to snap from underneath me. Sleeping has been getting difficult. Laying on my side is causing pain in my upper back. Not really sure how to fix that symptom. And the fatigue is back! Just body fatigue though, not mentally.
I bribed my 6 year old today I told him if he picked up and vacuumed the living & family rooms I wouldn't make him take a nap. He of course obliged! There was noway I would have been able to pick up all the toys :/
I think I am more mentally ready than physically! I'm nearing the point my b/p went wonky with DS so I'm constantly on edge waiting for that to happen. Afraid to make plans over the next few weeks in case I get put on bedrest again. Etc. A crystal ball would be nice right about now!
