This week has been so uncomfortable. I've been spending the afternoons at work with a heating pad on my back to TRY to make my back hurt less. It only takes the edge off. Now, I've had the heating pad all morning. My hips and back hurt so much. It hurts just to try to stand at the copier machine to wait for my papers.
And baby is moving like crazy. It felt like he was break dancing earlier, spinning on his head with his arms flung out to the sides (ripping apart my lower uterus) and then kicking his feet up high. Now it feels like he's just trying to punch his way out. My cervix is burning and throbbing from the pain. I'm just to the point of wanting to vomit from the pain, alternating with trying not to cry and holding my breath.
Is this really normal?
I'm not too concerned about the burning throbbing cervix, as I've had this on and off for months and the OB wasn't concerned (since cervical checks have shown no shortening and a very firm cervix). I just can't take much more of this.
4.5 weeks until 38 weeks. Some days it's coming too fast but today....it's like a lifetime away!

I am counting down to 38 weeks too! It can not come soon enough.
So many things hurt and/or ache and/or make life seem so rough right now! Thank goodness my DH is good at giving massages. My back is a tragic mess right now. Every part of it is messed up. My legs get so tired trying to support all this weight I have put on. I wanna just complain constantly because its so hard to get away from
I'm having a bad week, too. I can't seem to figure out the correlation either -- maybe I've hit the max weight that my body can take :/I can't sleep b/c of back, rib and hip pain, my constipation issues are back and I've got serious acid reflux issues. Sigh
