32 weeks pregnant... aches and pains...
I am almost 32 weeks pregnant and the past few days my stomach has been feeling like it is really getting stretched... which is to be expected.  However today I had some lower back aches along with the sides of my stomach hurting.  The baby has been going absolutely nuts today - not too sure how to explain it....  it was like it was kicking its legs and its head at opposite times really really fast (kind of like how you would make a drum roll with your hands).  Is this normal movement and pains?

I think the movement is the "fluttering and quickening" that they do, mine does that and get hiccups constantly.  The pains on your back and sides could be braxton hicks, I've been feeling them more often lately too. If it gets more intense, call your Dr.

I know!!! I don't think my body is close or ready at all to give birth in 8 weeks, but who knows!? I'm going to try and start walking more to get this kid moving.  

Seems like you are doing pretty well otherwise right?

Yeah I'm doing alright.  My stomach seems like it is just stretching and stretching right now - but I guess that is to be expected.  I also seem to tire easily right now...  My kid does not stop moving around - it is constantly doing something in there.  I'm hoping to start walking 2 or 3 times a week....

Mine has his hours of playing, usually when I get home he starts going crazy and at work during the day he's pretty calm, probably because I'm sitting.
My belly does feel like it can't stretch anymore the skin sort of hurts too, weird isn't it?  My belly button is almost inexistant :P

I hope I go before my 40 weeks...I'm getting bored with waiting.

haha... well mine goes at all times of the day - it doesn't matter if I am sitting or not.  My belly button is almost non-existant also... I am expecting it to go any day.

I am getting bored with waiting too.  I can only do so much in the baby's room until I get some of the stuff from our parents... so everything is on hold right now.
