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)
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!!
