8 months and feeling it

So I just keep getting bigger. But it's supposed to work that way (not that it adds any sort of comfort to my discomfort). There are some things about pregnancy that no one ever mentions, and for good reason, otherwise no one would get pregnant. My least favorite right now is sleeping on my side. I can't do it for more than two hours because it hurts my hips SO BAD! And I've been trying to sleep propped up, but for the past two nights it just makes me have contraction after contraction, which isn't really what I want at 36 weeks (though sometimes I do!).
But on the other hand you have really wonderful things, like a husband who is willing to do just about anything for you. And the incredible sensation of feeling little hands, feet, and other assorted body parts moving around inside you. That's really cool. Almost makes the hip/sleep problem worth it!


  1. I have the same hip problem, every 2 hours I have to switch sides because my hips hurt. In fact, when I get out of bed, I have to wait a couple of minutes because I can't walk because my joints hurt so bad. At least you don't have hemhroids, and DON'T ask me if I do, because I'm not answering!
    P.S. I have painful contractions all the time, too.

  2. I know, its so uncomfortable this late! But you only have a few weeks to go, yay! And I promise it will all be worth it!

  3. You're still skinny. Look at your butt. It's like you just have a basketball in your shirt. smack you!
