Hi,

I am 36 yrs old and currently 33 1/2 weeks pregnant with my 3rd son. My two boys are 16yrs and 13 yrs so this experience is like starting all over again. I have been having some lower back and lower abdominal cramps for a few days now. The last two days I have been feeling like I have been horse back riding and I can barely walk. I realize I am a lot older and heavier than my last pregnancies but this is miserable. Is anyone else experiencing these symptoms? I also have times when I get "waves" of complete exhaustion, mostly in my belly and chest (feels really weak). I hate to keep calling my doctor for every little thing (I'm older than she is)
Thanks so much for any responses.
I am posting a pic of my belly at 32 wks. (I couldn't post the pic)


Amy

Welcome to JM!! I think alot of what you are feeling is just because you are nearing the end of your pregnancy. You really do not have much longer. YAY for you!!! I am 38 and 23 weeks preg. and I at times feel exhausted. I am not sure if it is any worse than when I was preg. when I was younger. My youngest is 7 so it is hard to remember back. As my belly is getting bigger I do find it harder to breathe and easier to get out of breath. I wish I was almost 34 weeks!! Hang in there hun!! Dont feel bad calling your DR. for any reason. THat is what they are there for and what they get paid for!!

Donna

Hi Amy!

Congrats on your pregnancy!!! How exciting that you are almost ready to meet your baby!!!!

Like Donna said, it's all due to the fact that you are very near the end of your pregnancy! But if you have doubts or concerns I would call your dr. That is what they are there for sweetie!

Best of luck! When is your exact due date? I'm so excited for you!!!! Make sure you let us know when your baby boy arrives

Joanne

Thanks so much! My official due date is April 2nd but my ultrasound said a week sooner. I'm getting everything ready now. I can't wait to meet him.

BTW, what do all the initials mean (DD, DS, TTC)?

*everyone has such adorable kids*

Hi,

DD = Darling Daughter

DS = Darling Son

TTC = Trying to conceive

DH = Darling Husband

SO = Significant Other

There's a whole bunch more. I think on the TTC forum they have a big abbreviation list.
