It started yesterday, I stood up from my desk at lunch time and I couldn't walk, intense sharp pains were shooting through my lower back and I just couldn't seem to straighten up.  Figured a good night's sleep (ha!) would fix the problem and then this morning, I still couldn't walk.  It took me 15 minutes to walk the 3 minutes from the parking lot to work.  How am I going to get through two more weeks of work like this?  Is this pregnancy waddle?  I thought that was caused from the pelvis spreading, not from shooting pain.  The only place I feel good is in the water, need to get in the tub.

35 Weeks!

So here we are, 35 weeks.  Up until last week I was feeling pretty good, thinking....I've got this thing under control..... i'm sleeping okay, eating, walking every day....well that all ended this week.  I haven't slept in days, between the heartburn, itching, peeing, heat and general discomfort I am almost delirious with exhaustion.  It's a struggle to keep my eyes open during the work day.  Back and rib pain make sitting all day pretty unbearable and daily walks are getting harder to handle.

There's a part of me that hates to complain,  after pregnancy loss and fertility issues I should suck it up and count my blessings right?  However the part of me that hates to complain is shrinking as quickly as the rest of me is expanding.
