Good Days and Bad Days

This title says it all. These last few weeks I will have some good days and some bad days. It does seem as if the bad days happen on a Monday after I have relaxed all weekend. I am also understanding why some women choose to take the last week or so off of work. At this point I might consider that too, especially if I do not come back to work after my maternity leave is over.

Yesterday I was experiencing a lot of main in my lower belly and back. The nurse said it was probably round ligament pain. Then yesterday evening I was having contractions about every 10 minutes, while laying down relaxing. I was good last night and I took it easy, it took too much effort to straighten up the house so I let it go. Around 7:30ish last night the contractions slowed down a lot and I am not having nearly as many as I normally do.

So far today I feel much better but I have had trouble sleeping the last couple of nights - let the games of being super uncomfortable begin!!

I am so feeling you on this one! I just told my hubby the other night that I don't know how I can be pregnant for another month. The way my body feels I feel like it could happen anytime.
Good luck! Glad to know I am not the only one.
