For the past 6 weeks or so I've been getting bad pelvic pain, stiff hips, lower back pain.
It's been interfering with my sleep a bit but in the last 2 nights I've only had a total of 3 hours sleep.
I can't lie down, I can't sit up, I can't lie on my side (either one). I've been propping myself up on pillows but each time bub moves it feels like I'm being stabbed in my pelvis, and when he's not moving it's just plain sore anyway.
When I do eventually fall asleep I wake up in alot of pain.
I've tried pillows between my legs, which is the only thing that helped me sleep in the last weeks of my last pregnancy, but it's not helping at all this time. I've tried heat packs (dont do squat). Painkillers do nothing. I can't have a bath as there's no way I'd be able to get back up again. I can't go for a swim as I have extremely sensitive skin which both chlorine and salt cause extreme allergic reactions. (And I mean Extreme)
I'm measuring 43weeks at 36 weeks and I'm only 5ft tall, so you can imagine my discomfort.. (which I'm having a scan tomorrow to investigate why bub is measuring so large).
Please if anyone has any tips, share them with me!
I desperately need some sleep, and this pain is taking me to a not-so-good place
