Snap @OneOfTheseDays! I feel your pain
Hi everyone!! So it's my last day at work today!!! Yaaayyy!!! I've only just stated getting swollen feet the last couple of days ~ frig I've had it easy! And my husband is the one suffering from lack of sleep due to my snoring! I've been sleeping better than ever! I feel so guilty because I know a lot of you have been struggling with sleep & swollen feet/ankles for ages! I think she's going to be overdue because she's not engaged yet, hurry up and get down there girlfriend! I want to meet you already! So glad I have worked for as long as I have, I have no idea what I'm going to do for the next couple of weeks as it is so works been an awesome time killer! I've got a hair appt next Tuesday for a prebaby freshen up and a couple of lunch dates sorted too waiting at the drs now, he's running 1 1/2 hour late so hopefully he's not too much longer! It's nearly lunch time and baby's getting hungry!
Oh @OneOfTheseDays and @onedaymaybebaby - I think I am like @MissTilly, I have had it easy for the most part! A few symptoms here and there but nothing major (except the occasional cramps in the calves in the middle of the night when i shift position too quick and that's IS painful).
I am 28 weeks 2 days now and have pretty much felt a lot heavier and tired right on time. I think bub is upside down too because I get the kicks on top near my navel button or above that and boy, he can get quite strong with his punches. Overall, i think I have started to waddle a little, but I haven't put on too much weight yet. We will wait and see.
Would you ladies invest in a belly support belt or shorts? I have read pretty good reviews for some of those and am wondering whether they would help with those pain issues. My maternity jeans have awesome belts and support but even over the last few days, I have felt that they aren't quite enough now.
I had my GTT test this morning - I was quite tired so the 2 hours wait wasn't too bad at all. That drink was like syrup - bub was on sugar high afterwards with plenty of action.
@MissTilly - enjoy being pampered or pampering yourself in the meantime. you won't have that much of a chance once princess comes along - I have been warned so many times by many people! My dentist said "you better enjoy it because once bubba comes, you would want to put him back in."
Have some good rest over the long weekend lovelies!

Congrats to finish work @MissTilly ! Yay! I can't wait for that day! Enjoy the next couple weeks ! I just realised your EDD is very close to my birthday and my daughters ! Can't wait to finish up work I'm estimating to finish end of Feb but we see how I go hope everyone has a nice weekend !!!!
Yep I think I definitely need to look into a support belt @VickyP, no back pain at all, just very sore pelvic pain and where lower abs would normally be if that makes sense!? Walking hurts, lifting my legs hurts when I'm trying to get dressed, rolling over in bed hurts lol! I know this pain is nothing to what's to come I'm sure so I'll keep trucking on it's all more than worth it!
I've had a really sore throat the last couple of days so I think I'm fighting off everyone else's winter bugs, it's not eventuating to much other than the sore throat and a bit of a cough, eating vitamin c like lollies!!! One thing I can say that pregnancy has given me...mega immune system! I haven't had any colds or flu at all this season!!!
