Pain here, pain there, pain everywhere!

I am so tired of this. If you are one of those women who "loves being pregnant!" then this thread is not for you. And please get away from me.

I have a short torso, so about a month ago when things really started getting going, my ribs right below my boobs started hurting. As soon as I get home I take my bra off. It's worse when I sit for long periods of time and feels best when I lay on my back. But when I lay on my back I get nauseated after a good 15 minutes. Awkward side-laying seems to help the best.

If I'm walking around/standing so my ribs don't hurt then I start noticing something in my hip hurting...it's like in my right butt cheek. Deep in there in the bone. I walk with a limp - kind of a giddy-up step. I feel like I'm walking like a lady I knew who had a fake leg. It's pretty attractive.

AND THEN if I'm doing my awkward side-laying to keep my ribs/hips from hurting then eventually it puts strain on my lower back and that hurts. I always used to get Restless Legs (before they had a name and drug for it) and a hurting lower back makes it worse. What makes lower back feel better for me is laying on my stomach which we all know is IMPOSSIBLE.

So basically I'm screwed. I'm uncomfortble and unpleasant to be around. The only thing that makes me happy is eating. Which makes me gain weight and gives me heartburn. Now that we know the sex I feel like shopping would make me feel better but that coud become a slipper slope!

This is really just a rant. Because I am miserable.
