    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I'm right there with you, girl! Every other night or so, the Braxton Hicks contractions keep me from getting a good night's sleep (lots of back pain and tightening of the uterus). And I now have to get up and pee 2-3 times in the middle of the night. My LO dropped 5 days ago, so walking up stairs, bending over, etc is extremely uncomfortable. I'm 37.5 weeks and won't be upset if I go into labor any day now! So hang in there and I'll do the same.....we're almost there!
