    I can't even do the groceries anymore I'm so uncomfortable! Little girl has been low in my pelvis the whole pregnancy, causing me a lot of back pain and pelvic pain and my midwife said it's highly unlikely she'll move up now, she'll just stay there til birth. I take 3 steps and feel like she's about to drop straight out from between my legs!! Super uncomfortable!! Oh and the peeing thing... I'm going to lose it over that. Stand up and feel like I'm about to pee myself, okay go I the toilet. Literally a single drop of pee! But I just can't hold it... I could cry!!! And I've started getting Braxton Hicks which are extremely uncomfortable and I haGoing to the beach and nugget has moved and made me look fat not pregnant again. Why she do this to me. I have to undo my pants every time I have one, so I pretty much just live in unbuttoned shorts now :haha:

    Sorry for the mini rant, I know there's a lot of ladies a lot further along with a lot more problems!

    I feel for you, I've had it too. It sucks! And I have the pee thing too, so so annoying, especially when you feel so desperate and think you are going to pee yourself then just a drop comes out!! (I lean forward a bit now so more comes out - I find that works sometimes!)

    My little girl has been so low for so long, I have SPD and the heavier she gets it literally is agony - I literally don't leave the house unless I have to now! :wacko:

    Luckily I'm being induced next Tuesday so there is light at the end of the tunnel for me!!

    Gosh isn't it the pits!! Yes I've been doing the leaning forward thing too! Supposed to help empty your bladder completely.. I feel like all my bladder can hold is that one drop :haha:

    Oooh I've got SPD also... Though not as bad as what it sounds you have thank god! Isn't it hell to turn in bed though.. So ready for time to fast forward and this bub to be here, no one tells you about this side of pregnancy before conceiving :haha:

    Oh woohoo! Good luck for your induction and labour! I hope it all goes smoothly for you :)

    I hugely sympathise!! I also feel heavy and aching :( my hips are starting to feel it now, and my pubic bone aches when I get out of the car! I also have times when I constantly feel the need to wee - and I agree that leaning forwards to get those last few drops out can help :D it is miserable at times though!

    You'll be there before you know it - and remember, you're classed as full term from 37 weeks, so you may have less time to wait than you think :hugs: xxxxxxxx

    Thank you!

    Yep, SPD and turning in bed has to be one of the most painful things at the moment - sure it will pale in comparison to labour though ha ha!!! One thing to watch out for, apparently if you have SPD you are quite likely to get other sore joints in pregnancy, especially from 35 weeks onwards, and lo and behold my finger joints have been ridiculously sore for the past 10 days, especially in the morning - so watch out for that one! :dohh:

    Oh lovely :dohh: pregnancy arthritis! :haha: I hope you get some relief soon!! Although it probably won't resolve until after birth like everything else I'm guessing! Poor thing! :hugs:

    I hear ya. I dunno if i can handle 8-10 more weeks.

    My bladder always feels full and when I do go it's barely a drop. Then sometimes i have this huge urge to pee and it goes away almost immediately. Heartburn is so bad that I want to throw up all the time and it kinda gave me a cough. I cry and get angry over every little thing. My ribs (front and back) are on fire a lot of the time. Then there's this new odd thing: my hip! My lower back till my entire left leg are in constant pain. No position is comfortable anymore that I just started crying my eyes out last night as it hurt, and I couldn't sleep and there was no comfortable position to sleep in. I don't feel like I can go on much longer lol.

    I feel your pain! Mine's measuring a month bigger then he should be. He takes up my ENTIRE torso. Not just my lower pelvis area which he likes to hit constantly where I have sharp random pains all the time out of nowhere... But he's in my rib cage putting his foot on top of my ribs, under them, pushing on my lungs to where out of nowhere I just can't breathe at all! 10 more weeks sounds like an eternity at this point. I have to be on bedrest and it's going to make me gain SO MUCH weight. I'm ready for this one. I just want to get this show on the road...

    We are due at almost the same time and in right there with you with the discomfort. I can't even imagine getting any bigger than I am now. I keep saying "if I could just get rid of the back pain I would be fine" but then I remember the rib pain and the hip pain I get in the the morning. ::sigh::

    I totally understand where you are coming from:( I have uterine, bladder, and rectal prolapse from my son's delivery, which I knew would make third tri difficult this time around. I wasn't expecting to develop SPD as well though, the pressure of LO's increasing weight on both my public bone and bulging pelvic organs is enough to have me desperate for bed rest to be able to just lay down! Working 10 hour shift from 9pm-7am has made things difficult as well:( We're almost there, right ladies?! (Haha please tell me we are!:))

    It's so hard, I've had the same since around 30 weeks and unfortunately it's just got WORSE :cry:
    Now at nearly 37 weeks I still can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. I literally can hardly walk!
    I hope it doesn't get any worse for you x

    Hi all! I am almost 32 weeks and still at work, I find sitting down at the computer so uncomfortable because my belly hits the table and I can't get my keyboard and mouse close enough. Plus he is starting to become an acrobat and loves to punch me in the side at random times. The no sleeping, sore stomach and the feeling that my cervix is about to drop to my feet is sooo lovely! Does anyone have any good coping mechanisms?

    But in saying that.. I love every second of this pain and uncomfortableness because we get to meet our little man in 8 weeks!

    As far as SPD paling in comparison to labour, i'd have to disagree, id rather go through 12 hours of labour than 12 hours of my SPD. Its horrendous.

    Earlier today I was sitting in bed with my cat and she was all cuddly and sweet then she suddenly became interested in something else and was about to jump off the bed. At the same time I tried to put one leg on the floor to get off the bed as well but I felt like my lower back was going to snap into two and even screamed really loud. I turned to my cat who was frozen and staring at me looking pretty alarmed. I feel so bad :blush: :haha:

And the peeing thing is terrible...keeps me awake most nights bc I'm afraid ill pee the bed!
