How Moms Really Felt During the Last Month of Pregnancy

Pregnancy is hard. Pregnancy is exhausting. Pregnancy is beautiful. We asked real moms to share their feelings on pregnancy during that last month_the home stretch. You know, when you're so uncomfortable you will literally do anything and everything to get that baby out? Yeah. That one.

Here's what they had to say:

"The last month of pregnancy, I was SO over it. All of it. I didn't feel beautiful or any desire to really do anything except have that baby! Thank God my baby came a few weeks early. I don't think I could have handled it any longer." – Lindsay C.

"During my last month of pregnancy, I felt as big as a house. I literally waddled everywhere, nothing fit, it was just awful. I was so ready to get that baby out!" – Melissa C.
