I am really starting to feel the aches and pains of this pregnancy. It seems like it just hit me all of the sudden. I seem to have this constant ache in my pelivs (mainly my pubic bone...tmi?) and hips. My legs have been really tired and sore....and my back has been very achey. I feel like this last little stretch for number three might be brutal. My sleep is so important to me and now it is rare that I get a good night's (or day's) sleep. If I am not waking up three or four times to pee then it's my hips that are so achey and sore that I just can't get comfortable on either side of my body. Oh I can't wait till I can sleep on my back again. Every once in a while I will attempt to turn and lay on my back when I have exhausted swapping back and forth between my sides....but it never works...I always get really short of breath and feel so much pressure like someone is just sitting on my stomach and chest...imagine that.
Anyway I hope that I can get through this. I keep telling people how different it would be for me to go into labor on my own....I have been induced with both of my prior pregnancies and I think it would be a different experince to not have a day planned that I know I am going to go in and have a baby. Granted...I am not patient enough to wait for that to happen if my doctor will get this guy here a week early...who would be?! Maybe I will get lucky this time around and he will come just a little early on his own :). Here's to wishful thinking....
