hey Serene,

Our bubs has been head down since before our 18 week scan... also around 32 weeks I was real tired and then near the end 33 weeks I had a nexting spree and then energy levels dropped again at 34 weeks and now on my 35th week I am feeling better but finding it difficult to do things lol like get in and out of bed, get up off the floor, even to get in and out of the car takes me longer ha ha and after having a shower I am puffing like I just did a marathon lol my hubby laughs at me... I am still making sure I go for my daily walk though, even though it takes me longer, I think without that bit of exercise I would have no energy....

Hope you start to feel better and don't worry bout bub being head down now :o) xx

yeah you will start feeling that way as your organs are getting smaller and pushed against by your little bubba..

Hi Serene... I have found since last week I have had an abundance of energy... but before I was tired and constantly sore. How far along are you? x

These past few weeks I've been feeling like crap, the out of breath feeling has gone away but now i feel like ive been running for a mile every day when i wake up. My legsd hurt like hell, and i feel like she is going to come out any time soon. I didn't feel like this with my first child, but i heard this is normal, Are you ladies feeling this yet? I hope she doesn't come too soon.

Braxton kicks is a tightening sensation in your belly... some women have them and others don't. I only have one other friend who experienced braxton hicks...

I started feeling this way again about 2 or 3 weeks ago LOL the 2nd trimester was so nice and it was great to have energy. Now I can hardly tie my shoes or shave my legs with out feeling like Im going to pass out. Plus the past few days my baby girl has been so active kicking the living day lights out of me so it makes breathing that much more difficult. I wont lie Im not sure what braxton hicks contractions are suppose to feel like so I'm not sure if I had them yet but Im def ready for June to be here already LOL.

you are out of breath because bubs is putting pressure on your diaphram... try putting your arms up in the arir I find that helps when i can't breath...

Hang in there. =) I just found out that mine is head down already so I guess it's been the punches i've been feeling, he's been straight on hitting my cervix! I think it's worse than his foot getting stuck in my ribs!

lol well I hope you don't have to do a csection unless necessary Jamie. I'm at high risk and there's a little expectancy that I wont make it to 40 weeks yet somehow I know God's gonna humor me and probably even hold me past that! lol
Due:june 1st

Very much so. The baby's getting to such a size now that it's very hard to do almost anything. Even simple things like singing a single phrase I now find myself severely out of breathe.
