Sounds fairly normal. Have you done a kick count? Try sleeping with a pillow between your knees.

ound like how I was feeling when I had my first my midwife said it was my bodies way of preparing for labour - the tip about the pillow between the knees is a great one as it helps to correctly align the spine its even better if you have a nursing pillow the V shaped one on bump rest on one side and the other side between the legs

Try to use several pillows then to cushion yourself and help to get comfortable. Sounds about right to be uncomfortable this far along. If it geys too bad just call your dr or midwife in the morning.

I have had the tightening when i stand and period cramps that shoot a pain across the bottom of my stomach. my Ob said they were BH and as long as they are not regular then not to worry it was just your body preparing. i'm 35 weeks too so i totally feel your pain! lol
