I could write a book on symptoms lol I'm 37 weeks and have been hit hard this last trimester. Swelling, numbness,  and pain being the worst of it. I have found that epsom salt is amazing stuff! My feet will hurt so bad Im in tears. Soak them in epsom salt for awhile and it takes the pain away! This is a great question. I will follow to see what others say :)

Definitely worst thing is anxiety is elevated.  I have an anxiety disorder so it's just worsened. I cope by talking it out.

Migraines, swelling, intense heart burn and acid reflux, round ligament pain and pressure, insomnia, and constant sleepiness .... oh the final weeks are filled with joy lol but I only have two weeks till I'm induced if baby girl doesn't come earlier. I just take Tylenol and tums, rest as much as I can, and try to keep positive by seeing that the end is near and I'll have my sweet baby in my arms soon :)

I'd say mostly just back pain and chest tightness to where it feels like I can't breathe (almost similar to anxiety) I have tried different stretches to relieve the back pain and deep breathing exercises when i feel like I can't breathe!

I've been super lucky with not getting swollen feet or anything else. The acid reflux/heart burns is so intense & for some reason I am Completely Numb on both sides of my hips just in small area I can't feel anything. Could it be the baby pressing down on certain nerves?

I'm so itchy and swollen. I hate it. I soak my feet in cold water and elavate. My tummy, feet and legs itch all the time. Lots of lotion! <<(Most of the time it doesn't help though)

Feeling nauseous every other day and when I sleep I have to constantly turn on each side after awhile due to numbness in my legs.

On the plus side I have no back pain at all but I do have horrible pelvic girdle pain, leg/foot swelling, and wake up chocking on stomach content if I eat or drink after 5pm...thank goodness no heartburn (taking prilosec) and I recently got some energy back after suffering from some strong fatigue at the beginning of the 3rd trimester!
