Struggling alon...but still here

As I get to the end of my pregnancy I feel more and more like a beached whate everyday. I am almost 130lbs and I can feel it. With my son I gained 20lbs max and lost most of it inthe surgery room. LOL. But with this one I am thinking its going to take me more then a c section to get back to where I was before. I am short to 5 feet maybe and I think the weight gain has something to do with my back. I go for weekly appointment between massage and physio. I just want this over! I am never getting pregnant again LOL. Because of me only down to 1 daycare kid at the moment I will only be able to take 2 weeks off work. Im hoping this baby is as easy as my first and I can start another daycare kid in Oct to help with losing one (the one I terminated in July) as it has been a hard struggle on the bills. I dont have family close so it sucks.The dayhome lady across the street has become a real witch to me which doesnt help me at all. Day to day life is hard and seems no end in sight.

Those last few weeks are always the hardest. My sisters are short, too. I know they were uncomfortable towards the end, even moreso than most people since the baby didn't have anywhere to go but straight out.

Did you go over with Alex?

Ugh... I know after the 32 week mark I was so ready to be done. I'm 5'2" and I gained 40 lbs with #4 (normally only 112lbs) and it was miserable. Hopefully these last few weeks will fly by... just one day at a time and it will be over before you know it.
