I'm starting to swell! My feet are balloons and they hurt! It hurts to flex my ankles. My wedding rings can only be on for a few hours at a time and my eyes are so puffy it looks like I haven't slept in weeks! (I'm going to go check my BP today just to make sure it's still good and that the swelling isn't due to anything other than being so pregnant!)

Ben's head is deep in my pelvis and I can feel him moving it side to side. It makes me happy knowing his head is engaged, but now I'm anxious and want to do nothing but bounce on my ball!


I have been walking at least a mile and a half every night. That last half mile…I want to sit down and have my husband go get the car and pick me up.


We are supposed to have some nasty storms this week, I'm really, really hoping that the change is barometric pressure will rupture my membranes! ha! Wishful thinking! Maybe.

9 days to go! And I am quite over it.

People keep telling me 'oh it looks like you still have a few months to go!' Stop saying that. I'm done! He just likes to sit upside down in my hips.

And my foot decided to freak out on me the past few days. Like really freak out. It hurt so much I couldn't sleep and ended up spending five hours icing and massaging it. And waddling turned into limping which made work just a nightmare. Couldn't just cruise through the end. No no no. But! Today my foot is miraculously feeling better. So hooray!

I've noticed the most minimal amount of swelling, which could very well be in my imagination. But I need to get on my walking so this kid can get ready to come out on time. And pineapple! I need pineapple to go on sale!

I feel like this last week will drag by. And if I go over like the midwives and my mom are saying I will...it'll drag by even more. Whine!!

I have just about two weeks until my due date and I really am hoping she comes within the next week. I am so tired and it's so difficult to sleep. I had an exhausting shift at work yesterday and my feet are still killing me I wish I could stop working, but it's not financially possible right now. We had an ultrasound Thursday to confirm that the baby is vertex; I see the OB Tuesday, and I'm hoping I made some progress!

Ugh my feet/ankles are swollen today and it is driving me nuts. I know it is because I spent 5 hours walking around the zoo yesterday in 86 degree weather but it still sucks. Otherwise I am back to feeling perfectly normal. No BH, no cramping nada. Would LOVE to see some sign that he might decide to exit anytime in the near future

I've been so miserable, I'm trying very hard to stop and enjoy these little awesome amazing moments before baby arrives. We're all so close!

like right now my baby is moving it's butt across my upper belly...has the hiccups and is touching my side with it's hand. Love these moments. Not everybody gets to feel these things. A lot of women dream of it and never get the chance.

That said....my feet were so swollen last night I dunked them in icey cold water before bed BLISS!
My lower back is killing me. I've been at my sewing machine all week trying to get a couple hospital gowns finished...baby showers today for a couple prego friends and its wrecked havoc on my poor body.


But honestly I feel better right now than I have in weeks....calm before the storm?

Done, but not really, as long as I can make it to May I'll be happy. I have stabbing pains up my spine, random contractions at night, can't sleep, my belly actually hurts to the touch from contractions and Milla practicing her future dance moves.

No swelling, no progression, stuck at at 1 and 40-50% efacement.

Still have "morning sickness" and have to take pills for that.

On the plus side we are ready to go once she is, but right now I'm not doing anything to get labor moving along, I'm ok waiting.

Sounds like its a good thing everyones getting super close! My one foot is swelling too which is super weird because I never swell. My tummy also hurts to touch. The ultrasound yesterday sucked! She pushed so dang hard. Blasted women.

I'm suffering from the worst acid reflux I've ever had every night. I can't stand or sit for even short amounts of time without having severe pelvic pain. I still have 4 weeks until my due date. My last baby was induced at 39 weeks simply because I was done. And the one before that came after his due date. So I have a while left to go still.

Weirdest thing but for the acid reflux I have been eating spoonfuls of dry quick oats. It totally stops it.

I'm out of breath, low on energy, my hands are numb half of the day, acid reflex all the time, and sleeping is an ordeal (which really sucks since that's all I ever want to do.)

I'm trying to enjoy this last little bit though since this may be the last time I'll ever be pregnant.

I squeezed my shoes on for work this morning and they felt about two sizes too small! now that all the fluid has been pushed out my shoes fit...but my ankles hurt and wont bend due to the swelling. UgH!

Not miserable, but ready. Dealing with the woes and trying to be patient and positive. I know he's coming soon ... so I am keeping in mind that this is all temporary.

I'm 38 weeks as of yesterday. I've wanted him to come by April 30th SO bad because it's my 30th bday on Wednesday. I want him right before my birthday, but I'm not so sure. For some odd reason, my husband and I have had April 28th in our minds for some reason, and didn't even know each other was thinking that day for a long time. I'm gonna be disappointed if he doesn't come before Wednesday.

I've been having pretty painful contractions, but really irregular. Mostly happening at night. I was woken up last night with this burning sensation in my lower back that radiated around the front. People are saying I'm very low now. Also had my pubic bone crack last night, and it hurt real bad. I think he dropped even more after that.


I just wish I knew when he would be here!! getting very anxious to know if it will be before Wednesday. I'm a FTM and not sure how close these feelings are to when the real thing will happen.

My feet have been swelling almost every day now as have my calves and I haven't even stepped to put my wedding ring on for weeks now. I can't do anything without getting horrible contractions, or severe back pain. If I walk around to much or carry almost anything for a short distance I regret it around 5-6pm cuz contractions will start up. Acid reflux is still terrible I literally sleep with 6 pillows to keep propped up or I get no sleep. In the morning my right hip/side hurts so much I about cry trying to roll over and get out of bed(I've been waking up on my left side). I'm only 36weeks but I am so ready for him to be here already. My mom thinks my Dr will tell me to take the next couple weeks easy since doing anything causes contractions.

I'm also note positive that if my water breaks on its own I won't get lucky and just have it feel I'm peeing myself, I will be one that has it popand gush out because he keeps pushing down so hard with his head is causing severe Sharp pains in my pelvis.

Dr didn't tell me how effaced I am, but he made it seem like it was a lot... otherwise he said I'm 1 cm dilated, and this morning I lost my plug. Pretty sure I dilated more last night since I could feel his head hitting against my vagina. Quite painful. Haven't had a painful contraction in 3 days, so I don't know what's up with that. But I do have a feeling it will be soon (I hope!!!). Due the 13th.

I feel like a balloon, everything is swollen, especially my ankles! I have back pains, heart burn, and hemorrhoids... But it's all worth it in the end!
