the most favourite part of my day is having a shower. but its become such a workout, i dread it! just stretching and standing... then when i get out im usually sweating. ugh! baths are nice, but they just take too long. i feel any simple thing takes alot of energy out of me. folding laundry, doing dishes, going up the stairs, letting the dog out, etc. anyone else feel this way? just one week and 2 days until my due date. ive been getting alot of pain in my pelvis, legs, lower back, etc. heartburn is back... i am just so ready to have this baby already!

Oh boy do I ever feel your pain. I am due in a week or so as well. The last preg. was smiles & sunshine, no wierd pains, no hip pain, no heartburn...With this one that's all I've been feeling for 2 months! I have such pain in my hips and my siatic nerve I can't even trust to take a shower when i am alone in the house...the one time I want to be able to relax and treat myself, it's such a chore, and on top of it I feel like he trying to push his way out already. I know the feeling of being out of breath by one simple chore...thanks to the baby pushing everything up including my diaphram...just one or two more weeks I keep saying to myself.

OMG yes. I was laughing at myself earlier today because every time i bent over to get something or had to reach to get something (was at wal-mart. lol) I grunted like an old lady. Seems like every little task, even the most simple ones, are so much work now. I too am VERY ready for this baby to get here.

I've had to put a chair in the shower just so I can bathe. I can't do much of anything any more. The house looks a wreck, the laundry isn't done (except all the new baby clothes which were taken care of weeks ago) and I haven't cooked dinner in about a week or two. I feel useless. :(

Everything is absolutely exhausting! But I have no signs that anything is going on or coming anytime soon.

That is EXACTLY how I felt! Yesterday I couldnt do anything without feeling exhausted within mins. I was sweating in the shoe store trying to try shoes on my son. But within the last 3 days my indigestion came back REALLY bad! And she was really low causing me pain every where! hopefully that means you will go soon. I came in 3 weeks early feeling that same way...
