    Update- still no baby
    off_the_wall posted:
    Caprice- FYI, your tip doesn't seem to work on my end. It did let me reply earlier but not anymore.

    I am occasionally having painful contractions but they aren't real regular. I feel completely sick to my stomach and keep shaking uncontrollably out of fear. Still at home and hoping to get some rest but the contractions wake me up.

    Please don't worry about me if I'm not able to update too often. Especially with the issues Webmd is having it's making it all the more difficult for me to update.

    I hope you are able to get some rest as well. Take long, deep, calming breaths. Focus on a place that makes you feel happy, safe and imagine yourself as being there.

    Hugs to you.

    Hopefully no response means that you are having a beautiful baby right now. Take care and try to relax.

    Baby girl likes it in there, huh? I hope for your sake she comes soon. You are in my prayers.
    MandyCake replied to Kate_Te's response:
    Maybe she is waiting for Thanksgiving... "When your belly button becomes an outie, you will know the bun in the oven is ready."

    Seriously, now... I will pray for you as well. Dear Lord and Lady, Please be with OTW and her unborn child. Help ease the discomfort and fear. Help make the delivery of your newest child into this world as unstressfull as possible. Wrap them both in your loving embrace and keep them safe. Amen.

    off_the_wall replied to MandyCake's response:
    Thank yall! My doctor is out of town for the week for Thanksgiving so I'm seeing a doctor I've never met tomorrow morning. Nervous about it but also interested to hear what she has to say about when the baby might come (my doctor's opinion was that I wouldn't make it through last week and then on Friday said I wouldn't make it through the weekend, but here I am still pregnant!) I was in a ton of pain this weekend but the contractions have actually slowed down now so as long as I'm not in too much pain, I'd love for her to stay put until after Thanksgiving and until my doctor is back in town.

    Oh, and my belly button has been an outie for weeks now!

    And I feel bad posting about any of this without knowing if BB is okay.... But did want to keep yall updated. But FYI, if WebMD is still having the problems they are currently having with not allowing iPhone users to post messages then unfortunately I may not be able to update from the hospital. So if you don't hear from me please know I will update as soon as I can. I know when I had P and then got really sick with pre-eclamsia and couldn't get back online to update I really worried some people and I still feel bad about it.

    OTW -
    Don't feel bad about posting this info. Right now, I'm worried about the two of you. I keep checking for any news on bb & your baby. At least your news is good news, I can only hope hers will be as well.
    Kate_Te replied to Kate_Te's response:
    P.S. I hope everything goes smooth with the new doctor & that your baby holds out for your regular OB.
    friedeggs replied to Kate_Te's response:
