Uggg baby #3 is making me feel old!

Girls I was "Miss I can do it all" with both of my other pregnancies aside from the few times I had a migraine. I always wondered about those "other" ladies who acted like they were helpless.

Jill, mommy to Chloe, almost 5, Oliver, 3 & baby Ella born 12-1-11 !

I am also tired and in pain. With DD five years ago it was easy, I was in school and worked. I always had my hair and nails done. With this one my arms get tired trying to do a ponytail. This baby def makes me feel old and I'm only 24 :(
Back pain on my right side ugh drives me crazy!!

Agreed, I certainly didn't have this many aches and pains before, I had my last 8 years ago so it's been awhile. I don't recall having Braxton Hicks until the last month, but I'm having them all the time now. I didn't have any issues with incontinence either but now I have to wear a pad because I start leaking if I don't get to the bathroom soon enough (or if I sneeze, for the love!). And the pain of laying on my side in bed, my hips are in so much pain.

I'm feeling every second of this pregnancy. I've had every mild negative pregnancy condition so far. My heartburn is so bad right now and my sciatic is bugging me, as are my hips. I def wasn't this tired with my 1st 6 years ago!
