Well, that's interesting

I had been thinking that as long as I didn't actually say how utterly amazed I was that I hadn't had any lower back pain at all during this pregnancy, I wouldn't jinx myself. Well, it turns out that thoughts can jinx too. Yesterday I woke up with a sore sacroiliac joint (the back of the pelvis), and by mid-afternoon, I couldn't even walk. So much for my plans to work right up to my due date (tomorrow). I spent today at home in my pajamas instead. Not so bad, I guess.

Only one week until induction if nothing happens sooner. If my pelvis doesn't get better, it's going to be a very long week.

YOu made it a long time without lower back pain if your just getting it. That's great! You must have had strong back muscles pre-pregnancy. Hope you don't have to wait too much longer for the baby to arrive.

Sounds like the baby could have moved lower... Hopefully that will make the birth easier.

BTW, I was induced at the end of 42 weeks with my first(an IVF baby) - it really isn't as bad as people make it out to be, at least in retrospect ;-)
