s/c: Was dilated to 3.5 cm at last Thursday's OB appt!! Lots of BHC, back, hip, and butt pain. Feels like the muscle soreness after a great workout but I've been doing more laying around than working out... lol
Other: Feel like he's coming this week. Trying to get everything wrapped up at work but having trouble concentrating... imagine that
Next d/a: Thursday afternoon, routine OB Check
Julie (29), DH (36) DS Kawika 4/25/11 Due 10/7/12 - blue team!
S/C: I've been having labor for the last 3 days. Contractions are getting more painful but stay between 6-15 min apart. Can't sleep at night because of pain and contractions.
Other: I was in L&D early Sunday morning but didn't dialate in the 3 hrs I was there so they sent me home although contractions were getting closer together and more painful. At my doctors apointment today I was dialated to a 4 and very stretchy so my doctor thinks I could have my baby tomorrow. If my baby doesn't come by next week then she'll strip my membranes.
At my NST this morning they had to shock the baby awake because he wasn't moving like he normally does. He typically tries to kick the monitors off my tummy but today he decided to sleep.
At least I have all the baby's clothes and blankets washed and my bag packed for the hospital. As for a crib it's still in my mom's garage and needs to be set up.
Next d/a: 10/5 NST 10/8 if I don't have my little guy before then
s/c: feeling"full" like theres not enough room in my stomach for this little girl, moody, a lot of back pain, my doctor put me on flexerill but it isnt helping much. urinating a ton, its really annoying me since my job has limited bathroom breaks, and its disrupting the sleep i do get.
other: besides that im just wanting a 3rd ultrasound to check on babies weight sooner to EDD and also to see position but i think i may have to pay full price for it since ive had 2 already since they didnt think i was pregnant at first due to very low levels.
s/c: wasn't able to keep anything down so doctor put me in hospital this week for 24 hrs. It sucked but at least she is still cooking and healthy and I am almost back. Low blood pressure and LOTS of back pain.
Other: Hoping to go back to work for a few more weeks starting Monday. So far I am clear to go back then. Both of my daughters can't wait for me to have her so we can actually do stuff again. While in hospital youngest got really scared so I'm nervous how it will be when I go in to actually have her.
Next d/a Today to get officially cleared to back to work
