I know I'm a bit late but just wanted to welcome you to your lodge! That's great that you've had a successful VBAC already! I hope this time it will be the best parts of your last two births!
Welcome to your lodge!
I'm also late, but welcome to your lodge! I hopeyou get the birth you want
Lea-Mama to Tegan, born 17/08/08 with Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus
Thanks for the welcomes. I wouldn't say you are late, after all the baby isn't here yet.
I'm another step closer to getting the birth I want. My GBS came back negative, so I'll get a hep lock, instead of an IV. (need a needle in, cause when I get dehydrated, I'm hard to stick) Also after 2 1/2 months of fetal positioning exercises, baby is head down instead of transverse. He was just waaayy to comfy in his little pelvic hammock.
Oh congrats on making it to your lodge! I am so excited to see so many VBAC mommies around, it really encourages me for MINE coming up Here's to this being the best birth you've had yet, I am SO eager to see how you progress.
I want to cry, I hurt so badly. I had some pelvic discomfort in the later stages of my first two pregnancies, but what is going on this time is different by an order of magnitude. For months now I've had really strong pains in the the ligaments and tendons of my pelvis, in the last month it is very intense. Putting my legs together especially when sitting or lying down is terribly painful (the wider they are open the less painful it is).
On top of that, in the last week, since I went walking last weekend, I have developed a pain in the front right pelvic bone. It feels from my experience, EXACTLY like a stress fracture. If it is a stress fracture, there is nothing I can do about it.The method of diagnosis is nuclear bone scan, not a good idea when pregnant. The treatment is rest, well, it's not like I can take the pressure of the baby off the pelvis, unless I have a c-section, which is what I'm afraid my doc would push if I mention it.
I'm just gonna grit my teeth and hope he comes in three weeks instead of 5 or 6. And try to find a way to relieve at least the soft tissue pain. And pray, that if I do have a stress fracture (I'm pretty sure) it doesn't turn into a true fracture during labor, from the pressure. Sorry about the vent, ladies.
I know that it is actually meaningless, but I'm all excited. I am "officially" 38 weeks today, so anytime now....or now...how about now? J/K my others were 41 and 42 weeks, but, hey it could happen, right.
Yes, it COULD happen! LOL! Congrats on making it to 38 weeks, I hope it's any day for you now! Like, NOW! I'm in the same boat girl, I am ready now .... and now.... and now... lol. And to think, I used to tell myself I wasn't going to get antsy and would just let it be. I am SO antsy! It's crazy! And I'm a few days behind you!
I hope your pelvic pain eases up. I can only imagine how painful that must be... and frustrating. It's not like you can take anything for it, either. Surely Tylenol won't be of much help. Sigh. Almost there... you can do it!
