Aww, hang in there love.

I felt the same way. I think every woman does. My problem was sleeping. I could go all day & be fine until nighttime. It was hell for 2 months, actually probably 3.

But to look on the bright side, my mom had all 6 of us 3 weeks late. They don't even let you do that anymore.

It sucks now but you'll be in euphoria when the little one is born. I love that feeling right after.......

ETA: My post was last but skipped up here

When will it be over?

I have hit miserable. Really, really miserable. I cannot sleep at night because I wake up with back pain. I am uncomfortable sitting because of back pain and rib pain. I can't stay on my feet all day because, you guessed it, back pain. Not to mention the stretching pain of the skin on my stomach, the jabs to the ribs and swelling everywhere. I just want to be done. Right now I feel like I would be crazy to ever do this again! Sorry I just had to complain to someone...

Liz, your feelings are perfectly normal! Do you rub your belly with lotion? Try to find some that has lidocaine in it to help with the stretching pain.

Will your doctor considering inducing you early? I was lucky that mine did--I delivered both of my children at 38 weeks. I could not imagine what the next 2 weeks would have been like. There isn't a single OB/GYN around here that will make a woman go to her due date. 38 weeks is considered "full term" so anytime after that there are generally no problems.

Good luck and just remember that you are the most important thing in your baby's life right now!! The reward for you will be the best gift of your life!

That was beautifully said Liz.

OP, like Lawgal said, use lots of lotion on your belly or aloe. My daughter fractured my ribs when i was pregnant with her, so i feel your pain. At your stage, it starts getting uncomfortable. Can you use those heated pads for your lower back?

It's not my lower back, it's the whole thing. I will try a heating pad and see if it helps. When I talked to my doctor she said to use a really heavy moisturizer, she suggested Eucerin in the tub. I got some and it helped a little... I will probably start considering asking to be induced at 38 weeks. I have always thought that was a recipe for a c section since you are trying to make your body to do something it is not ready to do. But I am now so uncomfortable the thought of 5 more weeks makes me want to cry I curse my short torso! And the doctor measured my belly a week bigger than my due date. We know the exact day we conceived so it is not wrong. This baby is just getting really big in the last few weeks. I would stop eating if I weren't so damn hungry!

Aw, i'm so sorry. I have a short torso as well. Sometimes the doctor can order you a pregnancy brace for your back. Maybe you should ask your doctor. I hope the cream helps!

Do you have a prenatal cradle? I wore one and it really helped my poor back.

I can completely relate.

When Emaan went post-dates I thought I was going to be pregnant forever! Hoping 38 weeks is it for you!

All doctors have their reasons for early delivery or going full term. All I know is had I not been induced at 38 weeks, my son probably would have died or been born with severe brain damage. His cord was wrapped around his neck when he came out and his entire head was purple. My doctor had to to CPR and give him oxygen. Who knows what would have happened if he had stayed crammed inside by body with his cord cutting off the blood flow to his brain.

He is perfectly healthy now and we rarely if ever have to visit the pediatrician for any reason! I am so thankful to my Dr. for choosing to let me induce.

Shi, you are still my hero for going past due and delivering your own baby in the car! You are truly a Super Mom!!

That sounds hard...I hope it is less than 37 days that you have to wait. Once you get to meet the little human that was causing all this discomfort, you will instantly forgive her and the joy will make you forget how you feel now...so much that you'll want to get preggers again!
Apparently the post-childbirth joy has amnesiac qualities that are necessary for people to keep having kids after the first time around. ;)
My maid of honor is in the same boat...very, very pregnant and very, very ready to have the baby.

This is so true!

Liz, I hope you get to go a little early (whether naturally or induced). Both of my kids were born early, one at 36 and one at 37 weeks, so I can't even imagine doing those last couple weeks. Good luck!

I don't know. I was induced at 38 weeks when my water broke (GBS+) and ended up with a 30 hour labor. I am thankful that I was able to avoid a c-section as my progress stalled at one point for 6 hours. I would love to go into labor naturally next time.

Liz, I'm so sorry you are feeling miserable. Try to remind yourself that all of your pain and discomfort will have a positive outcome at the end. You have a great support group of women here that have been where you are now. Hang in there, it will get better.

Liz, try to get one of these or something like it. It will take some of the strain off your back.

Oh Liz, so sorry to hear you are struggling!
I have been there (suffering from insomnia, pelvic pain, back pain, swollen tissue in my sinus so I could not breathe... etc, etc)

Everybody will tell you this - it is sooo worth it!

Mine came early, so I did no go to term, but I can give great advice on skin itching/pain.

I have a history of stretch marks, all women in my family have maps on their stomach, and I struggled with terrible itching and pain (I am 5'4", so my stomach went right out) - I tried EVERYTHING, and it made me even itchier.

One thing worked for me, the massage oil from the Aromatherapy line at Bath & Body Works. I rubbed on my skin every night and morning, it does not stain clothing and can be removed with plain water.

I wanted to buy stock in B&BW!

BTW, whatever you use to rub on your skin now, continue doing it after you have her, at least for a month or so, while the skin tightens, it help tremendoulsly with the whole process, and minimizes the probability of stretch marks. Also, do not stop at massaging the belly, do that on the boobs and butt and thighs (sooo many women report stretch marks in these often neglected places)

Yep, the prenatal cradle; that's what I had and it helped a lot. It's well worth the money.

Thanks everyone. I will get one of those sling doo-dads...
I am very thankful that I am able to have this baby and the pregnancy discomfort is worth it. I would start all over knowing what I know now. I don't mean to sound ungrateful for my good fortune, I just had a very bad couple weeks. My husband has been gone on business trips since 8/10 so I have not had any help around the house or much human company since then. I got a little stressed out I guess working full time and coming home to an empty house! I can't wait to meet this baby...

aww Liz... i really sympathize with you
i had a very hard time the last few months with Ricky.. i was actually crawling (imagine that) instead of walking because my back hurt so bad.
it turned out that i had extreme back labor with him as well..and i wouldn't wish that on anyone.

^Me too. I did not even realize I was in labor because my back kept tightening up. I walked a lot which did help in the end.

Liz, don't feel guilty for wanting the pregnancy to be over; that does NOT make you sound/seem ungrateful at all, it sounds human. Nine months is a long time, and I have yet to meet anyone who wishes it was longer. . Let me know if that maternity support belt helps you; it was a godsend for me. I know it sounds cliché, but the pregnancy really will be over before you know it, and that beautiful baby girl will melt your heart and make you forget it all.
