I'm miserable! I always feel weird complaining about pregnancy symptoms since I so badly wanted this pregnancy and I swore I would be happy with every aspect of it after I lost my baby last year. But late pregnancy is uncomfortable, no matter what!

My feet are swollen every day, I have to get up to pee about 9 times a night, I can't get comfortable sleeping or sitting or walking. Baby pushes and kicks and it HURTS. I guess I didn't need that spleen or liver anyway

And the worst part is I still have 5 weeks to go!

I"ve never been very good at being pregnant, I've always enjoyed having the baby more. Sorry to complain, I know it seems so shallow of me. But I'm just so ready to have this baby. Being pregnant for 54 weeks is a lot on a person.

No need to apologize. Late pregnancy is miserable, especially since you are during the hot months. Just hang in there mommy! You are doing wonderful! Just think in just a few weeks you will have your sweet little baby. Remember to stay cool, drink plenty of fluids and keep your feet up as much as possible. Also, try to keep yourself busy as much as possible.
Best of luck you you Mommy!
Thank you KimberlyD0 for my absolutely beautiful siggy!

I am right there with you Susan! I hate complaining, and I really am still enjoying being pregnant and wouldnt change it for anything, however this time around I am having ligament pains that have me almost in tears at night! They get so bad when I am in one position for too long, so at nighttime, when I am not moving around often, my ligaments get too tight and then STRETCH really hard with the tiniest adjustment of my legs. Last night I was thinking "this cant be normal!" because I was in so much pain.

It is hard to stay positive and remember that we were all praying for these miracles... but youre also right about being pregnant for 54 weeks- we arent elephants!!!!!!!!! Gestation should be 9 months, no more!!!

Complain away! I've been doing it too, though I wouldn't trade this for anything in the world right now! This isn't my body-between the back pain and the alternating sciatica, and the peeing every hour at night-none of this is in the books! I feel kind of guilty, since I wanted this so bad... Hang in there!

Lucky mother to five!

I hear ya! I am way behind you and I was already feeling some of these things and thinking "this is only going to get worse" I know what you mean about feeling guilty about complaining because I really am so happy to be pregnant. But being pregnant is not easy. I think men should HAVE to be pregnant at LEAST ONCE! ha
