The past 2 wks my belly sides hurt when I turn over in bed and hard to get out cause of the pain like my muscles are ripping and falling apart along the sides of my belly as well as my groin muscles.

Nicole, I remember my sister in law's hand was swelling too in the 3rd trimester.

I'm becoming a bit desperate for this to be over. The last 6 weeks my entire hand size has increased two fold. I can't feel anything and have such nerve pain from the swelling. Having to work full time makes it even worse. Because I have to change sleeping positions so much, I've resorted to sleeping on the. Couch.

And I get SO emotional by the evening, kind of like she has not come today yet and I'm let down. I have'nt cried yet but sure feel like I could. I know it's just hormones and all but you gurls understand! 39 weeks Monday :)

After this week, I really have to agree too! While my belly is huge and I'm so over people commenting on that, the pain in my pubic bone is so bad that I could just cry sometimes! Apparently my doctor says that it's probably Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction which means the relaxin hormone kicked in early and has caused my pelvic bone to spread too soon and too much so now it's like floppy or crooked or something. Either way, I'm up every few hours to turn over which is the worst feeling - like my middle is going to break in half and then getting up also makes me feel like I'm disabled because it's take me a few minutes to get going. I'm really wanting to this baby to wait until December, but I'm so over this pain!

People tell me also that they think I look comfortable...but I tell them this is the hardest of all three pregnancies.

I don't feel like I'm doing great, but it's good to know that it appears that way.

Michelle, you hit the nail on the head.
