I can't believe how close you are! I am here rooting for you sister!
So I just got finished watching BOBB on Netflix (instant play) and I loved it! I have been dying to see that movie ever since I first heard about it! Such a wonderful movie. I feel even more empowered to have my VBAC now, if that's even possible! LOL!
Yay!! Thats wonderful I can't wait to see that movie.
Progress is good! Sorry the pressure waves are so inconsistant. It's frustrating to have them start and then peter out. But at least it's doing something!
Yay for watching BOBB! I hope to go Saturday night - there's a showing at a Library in a nearby city. Glad it was inspiring for you - this is a good time to get inspired so close to the end! You can do it!
Last night I woke again to bad cramps in my lower belly, and pressure waves that were irregular. Around 3:30 I took some tylenol, and at 4am decided to jump in the tub to see if that helped. It didn't! But I relaxed enough to get back into bed and fell back asleep somewhere around 5am. Thank God for my DH, he got up with Alessandra and let me sleep in until 8:30!
When I woke up my hips were terribly sore, though I wasn't having any pressure waves. Just a sore belly. I ate breakfast and went to the bathroom, and then the belly aches started again. It's not the same as pressure waves, it's more of a sick feeling, and I'm a bit clammy too. I don't know what to make of it. I'm getting pressure waves here and there, and they are very uncomfortable because my belly is sore for some reason. I'm just not feeling 'right.' And Jr isn't moving around very much at all, it's starting to really concern me!
I wonder if I should go in to get checked? I worry most about Jr... especially this weird feeling, somethings just not right. Gosh I hope it's just an intestinal thing.
I am so sorry you have been so uncomfortable! Have you tried lying on your side after drinking oj or ice water? If you don't feel much movement after than I would just go in and get checked. If for nothing else than to rest your mind.
I hope the waves are making progress for you! This is such a trying time in pregnancy.
It wouldn;t hurt to go in if you are worried about Jr. not moving enough. I did it on Thursday. A NST is very easy to do. It could be reassuring to see everything on the printout, and if something happens to be wrong, they can take care of you and LO. My ob told me the chance of something being wrong is 1 in 10.000 but why worry about it. Better to check if you are concerned.
Thanks girls. I had been drinking water all day long, but took Cindy's advice and drank juice and laid down, and sure enough the kicking began. Made me feel tons better. I had pressure waves on and off all night throughout the constant lower cramping but still slept OK. I woke up this morning sore, but OK.
I REALLY REALLY REALLY *HATE* false labor. I'm starting to think the only way I'll know this baby is coming is when a head pops out from my thang.
Glad to hear the baby started moving around I hope you're feeling better today!
