Anyone!? Is this happening to you?

I'm currently 36w 5d.. I've had bad back pain for a couple of weeks were as soon as I start walking or even tryin to do this around the house my whole back is so painful I have to sit down.

Im also having a really hard time sleeping.. I know this is normal so late in preg. but because I can only sleep on my sides my thigh's are hurting so much when i lay on them
also my hips ache and i get some pretty horrible vaginal stabing pains and i also suffer from sciatic nerve pains...

My baby is engaged and head down.. I know the last few weeks are the hardest but has anyone been through this and know maybe how much longer Im going to have to put up with this whole body pain!?

I think its pretty standard for everyone unfortunately! Have u tried putting a pillow between your knees/thighs at night when u are sleeping? Ive had to fold the pillow over when i sleep to get relief!

I get the stabbing pains when i turn over in bed or if i lie on my back. I'm guessing it will remain until baby is born! Im 38 weeks 2 days now and still having trouble! Sorry!

Usually this just means your pelvis is opening and preparing for birth, I always get sore like this too :)
