You remember this from the beginning? Well the goods news is that as the baby prepares to be born s/he comes down further into the pelvis. The bad news is that this means more time in the bathroom. I try to watch what I drink just before bed and to always know where the restroom is located.

Another delight of baby dropping down into the pelvis is the feeling of constant pressure. Short of hanging upside down there's not a lot to do but take comfort in the fact that it's a good sign that baby will be here soon. Swimming or simply being in deeper water can help, as can pelvic tilts.
Kicks in Odd Places
While feeling baby move is great, it's also a pain at times. Some babies find your ribs and delight in kicking you until you're sore. Some women have reported bruising from their babies. I usually place my hand firmly on the sore spot and have a little conversation with baby. It goes something like this: "Baby, don't kick your mommy there!" kick*kick*kick Pelvic tilts can be effective in getting baby to shift a bit, as can creative positioning of your body. Some moms choose the route of using ice on the sore spots.
Umm, don't use it! Seriously, balance problems can be quite annoying. I've fallen a lot this pregnancy, and even more annoying as you become larger, is the not being able to get off the floor or get out of the tub. Try to avoid positions where you know you'll be stuck, unless you have help around. And just laugh when you have to have someone pick you up off the floor. In the event of a spill, remember that the baby is really well cushioned in the amniotic sac. Calling your practitioner for reassurance is a great thing too!
