The pain I was in from 25 weeks until I delivered. I couldn't move without wanting to cry. My pelvis felt like it was going to burst into 100 pieces.

Past 35 weeks was very, very, very uncomfortable. I woke every hour and a half to pee, I had to sleep in a separate bed that was lower so I could just roll off to get out of bed. The back pain, heartburn, carpal tunnel...

But I also had to get my appendix removed when I was 12 weeks so those two weeks for me were a nightmare!

I'm creeping up on 34 weeks and pretty darn miserable. Sleeping doesn't happen, eating is painful, walking is exhausting and hurts, going to the bathroom is difficult for several reasons, and ALL of my joints hurt. My hands are in quite a bit of pain at the moment. If I could live in water I would - as it is, I spend about 2 hours a day in a jacuzzi (cooled down a bit) or pool, and these are my favorite hours of the day!

You hit the nail on the head!!! EVERYTHING hurts and you can't move. You have to go pee. You find a good sleeping position and you have to go pee. I have a 2 1/2 y/o and a 9 month old. I was super tired.

My pubic bone wanting to shatter because of "baby A's" head descending so far into the birth canal so early. And being on very strict bedrest (up to go to the bathroom and back to the couch) for 9 1/2 weeks. But so worth it in the end when I ended up with two full-term, take home babies!!

The worry was the hardest part for me. I had to be on BP meds. Then I had to have an echo, and wear a monitor, because it felt like my heart was skipping a beat constantly(and I had a hard time breathing). I had pre-term labor at 32 weeks. Thankfully I made it to 35 weeks(water broke).

I'm only 22 weeks, but i think the biggest thing so far is how tired i get and how fast!And how less mobile i'm starting to become.

Nerve pain. It hurt to roll over and one of my legs didnt function really well. I swelled like a stuffed pig and I always felt winded. Peeing at night became a nightmare. At the end it was every 30 minutes. Just as I would fall asleep, I'd have to go again. But dont get me wrong, I think I had a great pregnancy and I would do it again in a heart beat if hubby would agree.
