It's starting....

I'm getting uncomfortable. Mostly at night. If I'm not completely exhausted by the time I got to bed, I'm tossing and turning all night as different parts of my body go numb. Aaron tells me that on Monday night, I would swear for about 5 minutes (loudly, in my sleep) about how hot/cold/uncomfortable I was - and he would try to take the blanket off/on/adjust my pillows, only to have me wake all of the way up, and grumble about having to pee, and get up and go to the bathroom.

Yep - I'm so much fun it's awesome.

And now at work I can't sit for more than about 15 minutes without getting uncomfortable also - which is difficult because most of my job involves being in meetings for at least an hour at a time. I'm thinking of bringing in one of those exercise balls to at least sit on at my desk.

But last night I decided to go swimming, even though I didn't leave the office until late - and it was a great idea. Getting some exercise in while feeling weightless is great. Only weird thing was that there was only one other person in the pool, and she was also visibly pregnant. I kept trying to catch her eye so we could talk, and she never gave me the impression she wanted to. But whatever. I didn't get home until 8 PM, and by the time I got to bed, and was conked out! Only got up to pee (X 3). Hurrah!

Swimming sounds like a great way to get the belly weight off your back, so to speak :)

Yay for getting sleep. So sorry you are at that point, it is no fun.
What about a memory foam mattress topper? It can help some with the numbness stuff.

I'm sorry you are uncomfortable. I hope you find some ways to get more comfortable soon.

Tip - I went through the hip soreness you mention and did something about it this pregnancy. I bought one of those memory foam matress toppers - about $150 - and it's made a world of difference so far. Yeah, I'm only 24 weeks but I remember how it all started. I can sleep peacefully on my side all night.

The soreness from sitting still too long is tough. I bet the swimming helps it out a lot. I should have tried that!

Thank heaven for the pool! I find it always wipes me out too. Only just over 9 weeks to go!

SO sorry you're uncomfy. I know it doesn't help now, but it's not for much longer

Yes sleep hell is in the cards. And peeing so often but it's so worth it.

I gotta say the ball definitely helped me. I alternate between the 2 all day. Only problem is that I'm in a tiny cube and trip over one when I get up from the other.
