The pelvic pain is almost non existent

My severe pelvic pain is almost gone, the sharp stabby pain that makes me cry when I walk is gone.  Still aches if i sit too long, or move too much, so I am trying to stay within a happy medium, but no sharp stabby feels like my leg is being ripped off pains.  Actually makes me think I can survive the next 5 or so weeks.  Last week I was ready to beg the OB to induce me early because of the pain and the fact I was getting so down that I just didnt want to do it anymore, I would have done anything to have it over and done with.

I still have the carpal tunnel, but I have a wrist brace for that which is making it bearable.  And the insane itchies arent there anymore, still waiting on the blood test results for the cholestasis, but I am pretty confident thats not the issue and it may have been an allergic reaction to the antibiotics I was on.  My hands arent constantly swollen anymore, flares up when I am sleeping, which in turn aggrevates the carpal tunnel, but eh.  And I am now having BH everytime I move which is uncomfortable, but not overly painful.

So I think I have replaced most of the physical pain with the growing realisation that we are going to have another baby in a few weeks and I will go back to to dealing with everything that goes with a new baby, the sleepless nights and all the rest and think were we thinking.  And all that with a 4 year old aswell.

Oh well, one more week of work left, and then I will have time to mentally prepare I think. Or go insane, not sure yet.  Hehe.

I'm glad you're feeling better.  All those negative symptoms can really make you depressed.  It's easier to get excited when you feel better.  I know how you feel about being tempted to beg for induction, lol, there are days I just think "I want this over now!"  Only a few more weeks though, you'll make it.  And you'll feel even better once you're off work.

Yay for getting some relief! I have no idea how I'll handle sleepless nights, so I don't really have an opinion on when I'd rather LO come. I hope this 'whatever' feeling is at least a sign I won't be a hover mother. I feel kind of guilty not being in a hurry for her to arrive!

my pelvic pain has subsided in the ways you described too. I still have it in my sleep. once in a while i get the ligament pain going up my groing into stomache (stomache splitting in half feeling). I have mild carpal tunnel. I got it after my last son was born, not before like this time. I keep having to remind myself to sleep with my arms straight, not bent! Im sad cause I love to crochet, but its making it worse on my fingers. they become numb and unable to open my hands the next day when i wake up. :smileysad:  i have been practically nagging my doctors to let me have him earlier than 39 weeks (date of csection) no one will budge. Now, ive officially hit the "whatever" mindsest. I guess as time keeps getting closer, im starting to freak out! omg a baby will be here in less than a month! i know i dont sleep well now, but im not going to sleep at all now! aaahh! there's no turning back! so now im trying to enjoy life with 2 kids, not focusing on the new life with 3. im starting to get very nervous and anxious.... its overpowering my misery lol

I thought my finger issues were from crochet, too, but it seems more related to not drinking enough. It totally feels like I broke all my fingers every morning - and since I got behind on water yesterday, I've had swollen, hurting hands all day. But yay for that pelvic pain going away!

So glad you are feeling better! Isn't it amazing how much pain we have and when it's gone we can finally enjoy being pregnant?
