37 weeks tomorrow and in paaaaaain


Tomorrow I'm officially 37 weeks according to some calculators. Baby is head down and LOW. Like so low in pelvic girdle it feels like he's going to fall out when I walk. A lot of pressure, a lot of just absolute pain through the pelvis and back. Last check showed I was completely closed, and that's just fine considering he's coming out by scheduled c-section on March 21 (my 3rd C-Section). Anyone else in this boat? SPD is no stranger... But this is unreal. I don't remember it being this intense.

Ohhh I feel you! I'm 36 weeks on Thursday and I have that same pressure. I don't think she's fully engaged yet though, I think she's dipping in and out as sometimes I'm OK and then the next, I'm like Woahhhhh, bowling ball incoming alert!
I was walking round town today and yelping every so often as she would go so low, i'd get a shooting pain and I'd have to stop in my tracks. My friend was worried I was going into labour but luckily I know the difference so wasn't panicking. It's just uncomfortable.

I am definitely on the same page. My midwife told me to order a pelvic girdle binding belt from Amazon because she said it helped her a lot and still does from time to time.. I keep getting shooting pains up the left side of my bump and down to my ankle all radiating from my hip joint. I've never had this in my other two term pregnancies and it is horrible! I get the sudden crotch lightning pains that stop me in my tracks and it feels like.. how is my water not breaking right now!! But never this radiating pain where I feel like if I go to my due date I'll be in a wheelchair.

It's just getting worse and worse. Last night it was ridiculous and I lay down and dealt with sweats and contractions - nothing predictable, but lord help me they sucked and sat in my back. So it was definitely sleepless for me while hubby snored on. Spending the day today getting the kids stuff together so they can stay with a friend of mine while I have this baby. She's on standby, thank God.

I have to pretty much walk at a snail's pace. There's no more jogging, no more walking - it's an amble or waddle at best.

Yeah, my rcs is scheduled for 7:30 am also lol. But it's my first planned CS. My last was an emergency due to placental abruption but all my babies have come early, including my first.
#1- 38+2 weeks
#2- 37
#3- 36
#4- 37
So, I'm hoping this baby makes an early entrance like her siblings! But with my luck, I'll make it to my C-section date
I tried to take my toddler for a short walk today. I made it to the end of my short driveway and was panting through a really strong BH. I gave up my poor toddler

Still holding in there, momma? I've been battling constant cramping, pain, lightning crotch... You name it. Can barely sleep. We only have a couple more days! We can do this!

This is my third and i don't remember being in this much pain with my first two. I remember the braxton hicks but never with cramps.
