Valerie is hanging out on my right side today. She's got her butt pushed up and out above my navel and what feels like her feet in my left side right in my ribs. Her movements are beginning to become very painful now. She's either pushing into my ribs and pelting my pelvis. I am fairly positive she is head down, as I have so much pressure down there. I swear I can feel her headbutting my cervix. I'm losing chunks of mucous plug everytime I go to the bathroom, but I'm not too worried about that as I know it can regrow. I have my 34 week check this Wednesday, so I am bringing everything up to my doctor. Thankfully the contractions have gone away. Now it's just muscle soreness, kinda like I did a million sit ups. I am also getting up every 45 minutes at night to use the bathroom. And during the day, I am running to the bathroom everytime I stand up from sitting, bend over, etc. I feel as if I may as well just move into the bathroom.

I also have the worst hip pain on the right side. It feels like nerve pain, but it also feels like my hip keeps popping out of place. I am looking into a chiropractor to see if maybe my hips are out of alignment. I have that issue not being pregnant, so I'm wondering if maybe 2 pregnancies pretty much back to back just pushed my limits too far.

But anyways, I am so glad to be in the homestretch! Only 6-ish weeks to go, possibly less! I am so excited to meet the final addition to our family!

Pbc, I know, right?!?! I am definitely looking forward to sleeping on my stomach again. Lol

I can do without the tossing and turning. It's sad when it takes less work to stand up, get out of bed and switch positions than to just do it laying down!

MalPal, I am honestly only guessing that it's her butt and feet pushing out. If I poke around at her, that's what it feels like. I flop around at night, as well. My hips hurt so bad, and I constantly have to switch sides because it hurts to lay on one side for too long and my legs will go numb. My husband has actually crawled into bed with our 5 year old a time or too because I am moving around so much. Apparently I kick and elbow him too much at night. Lol.

I wish I could tell where Baby Colton's body parts are in relation to his movements, haha. Glad the contractions are gone! I get the hip pain throughout the night and flop around like a fish out of water. I'm surprise the hubs hasn't moved to the couch. Good luck with the chiropractor! Homestretch is right!
