I'm due march 29 with a little boy! I have some constipation, a little heartburn, but the worst would have to be the SI joint pain I get occasionally. I had it for two days and Christmas I could hardly walk and nearly fell once or twice when the pain would hit while walking. Thankfully, it isn't bothering me currently.
Thankfully I've never been able to sleep on my back so this hasn't been an issue for me during pregnancy, but I've heard putting a pillow behind you is great to stop you from rolling on to your back when asleep.
I'm getting another scan at 32 weeks as I have a low lying placenta so they need to find out if it's moved up or not. If its still low, I'll have to have a C-section.
I have the big pregnancy C-shaped pillow that stops me from rolling over on my back. I curl the bottom of it between my hips because otherwise I get the pelvic pain, too. But since I'm not much of a side sleeper I also end up sort of my back - I actually consciously wake up uncomfortable, go for a pee, then set up my pillows so I am at a 45 degree angle, as if I'm on my forearms (or in a propped up hospital bed). It isn't comfy for the whole night, but if I go to sleep on my side then I find I sleep at the 45 degree angle for the last 2-3 hours before getting out of bed. My midwife told me that sleeping at a 45 degree angle on my back was perfectly fine.
I'm not bothered by sleeping on my back. As long as I'm not getting breathless etc, I'm not too worried. My body will automatically turn me if it needs to I'm sure. I spend a lot more time awake than asleep anyway.
Now that birth is nearing, I am finding myself asking more questions. Mostly about breast feeding, how I want the birth to be (the bits I can control such as visitors, spectators, etc).
How are you helping your time pass? I've got a 5 bedro house to completely re decorate and re carpet... By myself! Partner works to much, helps on the days he can but 90% of it is left too me. So my days are filled with paint, and fixing things.
Since im a sahm at the moment I try n find new hobbies to keep me busy but taking care of a toddler usually makes time pass quickly anyways lol I left all of my baby shopping till now so I have all that to do too still lol

Due March 30 with my Lucas Feels strange that the prenatals are speeding up. I have four prenatals at two weeks apart, four weekly and then I'll be a parent! Really looking forward to the glucose test though, apparently they spent the waiting time educating us on labor, kick counting and hospital preregistration.
