Well meaning people have been asking how many days I have left and I say 3 months much to their shock. Its never other moms that ask, only men and older people. I say I have a lot of growing to to so cuz I get huge. It will probably get annoying soon but right now I just laugh.
I started to get Braxton Hicks contractions a couple weeks ago. When I told my midwife her student said "that's exciting". We both said "No!" Annoying is more the word since these mild annoyances do nothing to progress the process.
Up until a couple weeks ago people would ask how I am feeling and I would say "Great!" and I meant it. Now I am not feeling so hot.
See- I've got this killer pain in my sacrum- the bone in the middle of this picture
Every step hurts but I have to keep walking. Sitting hurts but I have to keep sitting. I have been stretching (pelvic tilts and such) like mad which helps but not enough. I have to lay down on my back on a hard floor to put my back back together. If you have any advice let me know!
I was also having intense arch pain making it hard to walk after noon especially if I had an exercise walk in the morning. I bought arch support and if I wear shoes all day I am doing better. I even wore them in my church shoes yesterday with my new non high heal shoes and I came home for the 1st time in a long time without pain.
