As for this little guy, he seems to be doing excellent! I could now tell how squished he is getting in there. He is moving less and less but with every move there is more pressure or pain. Strong boy! :) I also could tell that he is sleeping a lot more then usual. And I am so excited to say that when I wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, he doesn't! He may move to get comfortable again but quickly goes back to sleep. Which makes it so much easier for me to do the same! :)
As for me, I am getting bigger and more uncomfortable. Work is almost unbearable right now. I never thought I would complain about sitting in a chair for 8 hrs a day! LOL :) But apparently me sitting up and putting pressure on my pelvic isn't my favorite thing to do these days. I also have pillows for my back as well as for my bum that I use daily at work. I have been going on walks periodically during the day so I am hoping this is helping me progress. I feel a ton of pressure down low lately. I have contemplated leaving work early, maybe after Thanksgiving, but with the Holidays and 3 Birthdays coming up, I've decided to stick it out. I got this amazing text from my husband yesterday telling me I was very strong and amazing and it has made me feel rejuvenated! Thanks Nick!!
