I've finally reached uncomfortable

I held out pretty well for most of this pregnancy. Now, I'm officially uncomfortable.

I think it started with the false labor contractions over the weekend. Zach has decided he likes to wake up about 3:00 AM and kick, roll, and party for an hour or so.

Hormones are making me crazy, so while he's keeping me awake kicking, I'm lying there worrying about all kinds of stuff.

He's really low-lying, so he's putting tons of pressure on my pelvis, actually making my pelvic bones sore, squishing my bladder, often giving me the urge to go---NOW! And restricting my large intestine, so going No. 2 is harder than ever.

I'm 33 weeks now, and I honestly don't feel all that "big", maybe because he's lying so low, but I sure feel it. Still, I'm not in a rush to get this pregnancy over with. It's been great. Now, ask me that in a couple weeks and I might change my mind!

:D I remember asking The Hub many times "So, what exactly is the POINT of the ninth month?"

I always felt SO huge and...man, it IS uncomfortable.

Praying for you!!!

Those crazy little lungs still have to develop just a bit, but other than that, they'd be fine if born now :)

Syd was born at almost 35 weeks and weighed 6 lbs 5 oz. Luke was born at 37 weeks and weighed 7 lbs 3 oz. If I'd carried them to full term, they would have been whoppers. Hearing you describe it brings back lots of memories. I'm praying for you!
