Everything hurts. My pelvic bone has decided to be a literal pain in my ass. I suppose I could go to the chiropractor but I don't know if I believe in the hype. Chiro has always seemed like a "if you believe it, it will work" kinda thing to me. Yes, I've been before - after a car accident a few times and once when my neck seized on me so badly I couldn't move. Both times I got better, but I can't say it had anything to do with a chiropractor - could have just been that time passed.

Other new symptoms all fall in to the pain category. My feet get a bit painful at the end of each day but I haven't had any severe swelling yet. I have taken off my engagement ring - but still have my wedding band as its a bit looser.

The size of my breasts is getting entirely out of hand. I've tried new bigger bras with heavy duty straps. I've even tried nursing bras - we're now into size 36E and still I'm in pain. I'm nearly through an entire bottle of baby powder that I've been putting between and under my breasts everyday after my shower. It's a scary and sad state of affairs is all I have to say and I really don't know what else to do other than wait it out. I realize that breast feeding will only make them larger and more painful, so maybe I won't get my old breasts back ever, maybe it's years away, I have no idea.

Now that I'm 31 weeks we've started the every 2 week midwife appointments, which means d-day is approaching fast. I've got 9 more weeks till my due date - but technically could go in as few as 7 weeks. I fully expect to be late - first baby and all.

My friends are throwing me a shower next weekend - which I'm really looking forward to. I hope the weather holds out as we're having it at my friends lake house. I'm trying my best to hold off buying any baby stuff till after the shower - but its becoming difficult.

I want her to be here right now - but at the same time I'm trying to enjoy my quiet alone moments. Mr. M and I are also trying to spend a lot of quality time together, knowing that after she gets here our moments as a two-some will be few and far between.

[found you through So The Fish Said's blogroll]

I feel your pain on the boob thing. I'm 30 weeks preggo and currently wearing a 36I - yes, I as in Igloo. I'd like to recommend Bra 1 and Bra 2. They are super duper comfortable, and should help with some of the pain (depending on where it is, of course). I've found Bra 1 to be the most comfortable/supportive. From what I understand, the size is supposed to peak and hold at about 36 weeks, (even after your milk comes in) so hopefully you won't do too much more growing!

Good luck finding something that's more comfortable!

Ps. I seem to be getting more hurty and painful all the time too, so I can definitely identify with you. If it's not braxton hicks, it's a sore pelvis or hips, or my breasts, or something else. ::sigh::

Oh, I forgot to say (because I am filled with ass-vice) that often a massage will help with the pelvic pain, with no worries about adjustments and all that. Just make sure that you see a sports massage therapist or one that specializes in pregnancy, and not a spa girl. Chances are that the baby is pushing on a nerve or something that just needs to be released (Again, I have the same problem...)
