I am 30 weeks and I seriously can't believe I have 10 more weeks of this. My stomach is so big. Everyone says "you look like you are going to pop anyday now". I feel that way too. I started showing at 10-12 weeks and this is my first pregnancy. I can't imagine what the second pregnancy will be like. My back is really starting to hurt, and I swear I have morning sickness again cause I don't feel good instantly after eating lunch. The tiredness has returned and I feel like each day at work is like an eternity. My husband just says "its okay", but he really has no idea what I feel like. I am trying not to stap at him but I feel like he is getting on my nerves. Is this just pregnancy hormones talking or what?? I feel bad that I am complaining this much cause it will ALL BE WORTH IT when my little one arrives but for now I am temporarily miserable!!!

I am 31wks and I am still working.I planned to work up until I have the baby. I have lost total concentration and its extremely hard to make through a day at work. This is also my first baby...I am starting to get a little stiff at times and my bladder is constantly being kicked..I have 9wks to go and cant wait.

I'm 32 weeks and I too am still working. My belly isn't so big, I really didn't start showing until I was atleast 5 months. I'm starting to get sleepy again though, and yes, a day at work seems to last FOREVER. I think the reason why I'm so tried is mostly because I don't sleep so well anymore. I have to get up 2-3 times a night to pee and my baby seems to like kicking the c___p out of my ribs. Other than that, I'm doing okay. 8 weeks go to! Yay!!!

I am also 32 weeks and OMG! I can totally feel your pain. I work at a Dr.s office and I told my Doctor that I feel as tired as i did in my first trimester again. He said that's normal and that soon I'll get a spurt of energy (nesting) right before the baby is born. But I too cannot concentrate and I just hurt all the time. This is also my first and I have questioned everything. I am sure he is sick of my constant questions - especially seeing as he is not an OB/GYN. He's a pulmonologist! But his wife has had three so he does have some experience in these matters. I'm just SO ready for it to be over! I keep telling myself that the baby kicking me is my reminder to get back to work. Good luck to you!

I am also 32 weeks and I feel like if I dont take a nap during the day I am TOTALLY exhausted at night. I find that a nice soothing bath is great (if u can still get in and out of the tub) and I am in ma__sage therapy school so constant ma__sages help also with aches and pain. I have been having shooting pains when I walk that go from my lower back to left side of b___t and my doctor told me it is sciatica (very uncomfortable) she said that this will probably continue on until I have my little one...oh joy...

I'm almost 32 weeks and I stopped working at 28 weeks because I was so miserable already. I had to stand all day, and by the end of the day I would be feeling like the baby was just going to fall out. I thought I would feel better staying at home, but I'm so sleepy with my blood pressure meds that I can't get anything done. This is my second pregnancy, and with my first I never got that spurt of energy that everyone talks about...I was tired until she was born, and then afterwards I was just plain exhausted. I won't be going all the way until my due date, but I wish I were, because it's a million times easier to take care of the baby when they're inside of you than after they're born.

I hear you, C! I have about 8 weeks to go and I feel like I am at the end of my rope. My stomach is so huge people can't believe I have so long to go. We went out to dinner the other night and the waitress asked if it was our last dinner out. Pretty frustrating. That, coupled with NO sleep and all the aches and pains (heartburn, sciatica, backaches, headaches, laziness, etc.) are really getting to me. To top it off, I am bored as hell at work so the days just crawl by.... Yes, it'll will all be worth it, right?! We just have to hang in there! Yikes!

I am 28.5 weeks with my first baby, a boy! I cant wait!! I am thinking of leaving work. Yesterday I had the WORST back pain which was so bad I was on my way to the emergency room for sonograms and a morphine drip! they THINK it was a pregnancy related back spasm, or possibly a kidney stone. It was A W F U L.. I cant breathe well due to indigestion after meals, my heart pounds, I am winded just walking to the bathroom (much less trying to do any housework), and I have sciatica, rib and back pain, swollen feet and man am I tired again. I just got over a cold and stomach virus, which left me drained and tired. Everything will be WELL WORTH IT once he arrives! I cant wait to have this baby (not yet tho, too soon!)- but yes, it feels like the next two months are gonna be long and hard. Its impossible to get off the couch!! :) I dont sleep at night at all either. anyone have any excrutiating back spams?

I am 33 weeks today and I am so miserable! How can something so wonderful make you feel so miserable?! I have been thinking about leaving work as well, but I am trying to hold out. It is so uncomfortable to sit here all day. My back constantly hurts and now my ribs are hurting again. I have the worst pelvic pain and pressure and I am really starting to get tired again like I was in the first trimester. Okay, I feel a little better that I was able to get that out! :)

I am 34 wks and I am still working. My back hurts plus my ribs are starting to hurt..I don't know how much longer I can continue to work. I am trying to work up to 39 wks. I am also starting to get tired again like in my first trimester.

 

Christina - July 7

sounds like we are in the same boat nm...i was going to try and work until he was born, but as wimpy as i sound i don't know how much longer i can make it!!

Hi Christina, I am also feeling the pelvic pain and pressure. It seems like I am having pains in my hips also..I can't wait for this to be over..

 

Christina - July 7

Yep, I know those pains all too well! I am with ya, can't wait for it to be over!!

 

nm - July 7

Hopefully, it will go by fast. I keep on telling myself only 5 more wks left of work..I can do it!

Christina, Ia gree with you! It helps to be able to vent. I keep telling my hubby I feel like I am 90 years old but I really dont think he GETS IT! I get so tired and the simplest of things like picking something up or standing has become impossible. Everything hurts and I am so drained and cant even move around. Its good we can share this with eachother, lol! It will be worth it once our babies arrive! at least in the mean time we can empathyze with eachother, lol!

 

Christina - July 7

Staci, I feel the same as you! I need to go to the grocery just to get a few things after work and i am so dreading that. i just can't believe how exhausted I am!! how far along are you?
